I think it’s obvious by now I’m never going to update it. I’m now redirecting the old pages to Micro’s TWGS Search. He’s doing a good job of it. Please check him out if you haven’t already.
The Latest Tournament to Establish itself ICE Created and promoted by Big D . Information about the Tournament Can Be found at The Official ClassicTW Forum http://www.classictw.com/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=30664 Teams From Ground Zero and Boo! inc. have already declared entries. Good Luck to Everyone
A new article from PC Magazine states:
“TradeWars 2002 is a space trading game based on a classic gaming formula: buy low and sell high. Mix in ship to ship combat and a horde of Star Trek references, and you have yourself a potently addictive strategy game.
TW2002 originated as a BBS door game designed to run on dial-up Bulletin Board Systems. It has since escaped its BBS shackles and made its way onto the Internet at large thanks to the TradeWars Game Server.
You can play TW2002 on dozens of free servers today. The author recommends the ICE9 server for starters, which can be reached via telnet at ice9-tw.com port 2002.“

Make a look-alike bash prompt for Linux by adding this line of text to the end of your /home/username/.bashrc file…
PS1=”\n\[\[\e[0m\]\[\e[35m\]Command [\[\e[33;1m\]TL=\T\[\[\e[0m\]\[\e[35m\]]:[\[\e[36;1m\]\!\[\e[0m\]\[\e[35m\]] (\[\e[33;1m\]\w\[\e[0m\]\[\e[35m\])? : \[\e[37;1m\]”
Save, logout and then log back in. Tada. Your prompt now looks like this…
Here is what the prompt contains…
Command [TL=<TIME>]:[<COMMAND HISTORY #>] (<CURRENT DIRECTORY>)? :
It’s actually useful. You’re welcome.
This was originally posted by Cogwheel at ClassicTW.com. Please note the server pointed out is no longer active.
For those of you already using PuTTY, I have released a modified version (source) which adds a configuration option to return the cursor to the top left after a clear screen (Settings->Terminal->Clear screen homes cursor). TradeWars’ ANSI files expect this behavior of DOS’ ANSI.SYS which is technically in violation of the ANSI standard. I’ve attached a screenshot comparing the two versions landing on Terra.
If you don’t already use PuTTY and would like to have a go, I’ve also created an installer package that includes PuTTY, Bitstream Vera Sans Mono (my favorite monospace font), and is pre-configured to connect to my TradeWars server, including all the appropriate appearance settings to make it look right. You can change the settings to log into whichever server you want, or use pageant.exe to give you easy access to multiple configurations.
Just renewed the domain for 5 years. I doubt I’ll ever let this site die after 11 years or so already. It’s older than my oldest child, for goodness sakes.
Greetings and Salutations Friends,Enemies,Traders,and Evil-Do’ers Everywhere!!

All Issues to be Handled by ElderProphet and his decison is FINAL.

More information can be found at http://www.classictw.com/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=23252&p=190287#p190287
A few poeple have pointed out that i didnt post Rules and Have asked there to be an End date….It’s Unlikely,,, but VERY possible,, that this game/edit could be Stalemated. I dont want to be playing the HHT at Christmas this year.So I sought out Advice from a few players and have come up with a solution.
For Whatever reason the Game’s TWA keeps aging So to Clarify the game will open with game age of 30 days.
1. The game will have an End Date 12/10/09 23:59:59 Server Time
2. In the Event the End Date is reached the following point system will be in used to determine a Winner.
100 points for every Captured planet that is level 5 or above that your corp owns.
15 points for every sector with at least 1 corp fig.
100 points for a port with at least 1 product upgraded to the max(fuel,org,equip) Buy or Sell.
50 points for every ship that has the Game start date as the Manufactured Date.That you own at the end of the game.
In the Case of some Conflict ie double exturn or game data corruption The Game Moderators Decision is Final. (Game Moderator = ElderProphet )
also to be more clear
There is No Rules against Information Sharing.
Mega Corping is defined by the Sharing of Hard Assetts ie.Figs.Credits,Citadels,Sectors.
YES Mega Corping IS against the rules.
