So far we've had Polands' rehost and now Egg's rehost. Honestly I was hoping someone would try to reinvent the game and push it further than it was. Right now this is just a draft of what /I/ would like in the game. Keep in mind that I like overly complicated games with lots of smaller things to manage and balance.

Populations

Population multiplier controls birth rates + immigration rates

Birth rates can be increased w/ fertility boosters (drug/enhancements facilities)

Environmental problems decrease life expectancy

More pollution = more diseases

Industry (production/efficency of production buildings)

Increased by multiplier

Multiplier increased by propaganda (Statues, etc.)

Buildings require a minimum workforce assigned to function

Hardcap on max # of workers assigned

More workers = more production but also higher cost of running (possibly double workers makes 1.75x more resources at 2.1-2.25x more pollution and running cost)

DNA/mutations

DNA from other regions can be used to mutate your population to be more resilient to pollution and other negative health factors however causes instant rebels (possible sister agro something like 75% chance for each sister to get angry at unethical procedures) also causes instant rebels and huge satisfaction loss (extremely risky but possible benefits could be great)

Alicorns created by mutation (for ascention) have a short lifespan due to their extremely unstable genetic modification, they cant breed with each other or any others (no fertility/births) however the promise of becoming an alicorn increases immigration greatly

Dictatorships and oppression govs decrease/nearly stop immigration however industrial multiplier is greatly increased

Prez’s have greater base industrial multiplier than any others

Education

Basic, Advanced and Universities/Research Centers used to educate citizens

Each building increases education of pPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I checked a few minutes ago and there were 5 people online.

>see figure 1

Well, I created an account to find out why this game is more successful than Clop. After logging in, the first thing I saw was the error message in figure 2. Great!

I decided to check the forum to find out if the Admin is already trying to fix this problem. In figure 3 you can see what I got instead of a forum.

At least the 'Global Declarations' (it's like a global chat and you have to pay to post something) seem to work. People are using them to find other political simulators because Bloc is dead.

I suppose the remaining players are just the remnants of a once successful game which has been abandoned by its creator.

I'm also not going to fuck with empires that much.

However, here's what I *am* going to do:

- Percentage wealth taxes on everything: bits, resources, weapons, armor. I should have done this a while back, but I was talked out of it. Once Compounds is out of beta, I'm just going to do it.
- Make it more expensive to switch back and forth from Oppression (and with the taxes, a hard bit cost might actually mean something).
- Remove resource shelters and natural disasters from the game entirely. No RNG shit, no arbitrary admin shit.
- Advertise on Derpi again once this is done.

"The whole point of wealth taxes is that one person cannot grow arbitrarily large and powerful enough to singlehandedly dominate an arbitrarily large game."

ummm...

Not to kick a dead horse, but.

There's some clear and present domination going on.


 No.4228

>>4227

Well, yes and no.

It's clear that Myra is the biggest fish ingame right now.

But, the inflation tax still makes sure his further growth is slow, if at all possible. He still would have all this stuff, and quite possibly way more, you just couldn't see it.

In short, the tax mechanic still helps, it just doesn't keep him at low enough levels to be easy prey.

That said, in the past I _was_ advocating for mechanics that makes all this market storage nonsense not viable, but admin rejected my idea. Which still wouldn't change Myra's place at the top though, anyway.


 No.4229

Last night, we talked in chat about the current state of the game. We agreed on several things, including that conflict is important for both keeping interest in the game and to grow empires, especially those of new and/or small players. One part of it is that players with at least two or three nations have a larger power and resource base, and thus also can help others more easily. The obvious problem with this is the established power bases, and that war is more likely to result in the destruction of said smaller players if they participate. Followed by, worst case, ragequits.

Now, to incentivize said smaller players to actually go into war, I had an idea of "limited engagements". Wars that are limited in scale, but otherwise honest fighting, therefore (hopefully) being within the rules of giving away nations versus taking them by force.

First, to keep small players from getting mauled, these regulations can only be invoked if the defender agrees to it. No attacking newbs and claiming you can't be counterattacked.

As for the actual limits. There are two: number of troops, and time.

Once a declaration of such an engagement is issued, the offender's side has one week to send a total of 3000 units to the attacked player(s). Not per tick, not daily, in total.

The other side then also may counterattack with 3k units total, in the same time frame.

Third parties can try to capitalie on it by attacking either side (thereby opening themselves for retribution as well), but have to keep to the same limits, with the time limit beng he original one, regardless of when said third party gets into the fight.

A "side" of the war may be only one player, it may be more. Regardless, the troop limit counts for a whole side. Players from the same alliance are always on the same side (and no, just leaving for this doesn't count), but otherwise players may cooperate (or not) at will.

If three or more parties exist, each side can send their allotment of troops to each other. So you don't need to split.

why would you leave an alliance after you started getting attacked? that sounds stupid. most likely got attacked right after leaving


 No.4220

It seems that Keymaster and I had the same idea independently.

I saw LeaTheFlameboy unaligned for at least a few days before his nation aged to 21. So I sent forces, as far as I can tell, the same tick Keymaster did. I had neglected to bounce them off another Saddle beforehand (though I tried, but did not know that going into stasis returned troops you were sending to defend), so Keymaster got there first. But still, it was an unaligned Saddle as far as I could see.

The wartick when it seems we both sent forces was after noon on the day when the nation turned 21. That same wartick, LeaTheFlameboy threw up a nominal defense force of 100 unarmed cavalry and went into stasis.
