Mr Lunar Lamp
 
Hi Lunar Lamp,


I simply have a question for you. I see that there currently is 750 planets in the universe and I was just wondering how low can it get for PA to still be viable? Is there a pain treshold we cant cross?

Are there any investments coming into PA to modernise and make some minor commercial efforts to make an increase in players?

Is there any real plans going forward?

While I do appriciate you are all volunteers and you do a mighty fine job at it, I think it would be interesting if the PA team maybe could give the players some sense about where the game is moving forward.

That is a really good question.

No idea on the actual question (which is a good one), but I think the numbers have gone up a bit lately.

Lunar said ages ago that server costs etc equates to around 300 paid planets per round. Which PA easily gets. So it's plenty viable to keep it running. In fact lunar is probably able to pocket a few pennies for himself each round.

Player numbers have hovered between 724 (r60) and 615 (r68) since r60. Last round was the highest since r60: 691. This round it looks like we have some more planets: 787 at the time of writing, compared to 730 last round at this tick.

If it holds until round end, that would be a small uptick for 2 rounds in a row.
