Arrow War-only galaxies

This feature is now implemented.
It basically means that the Diplomacy Dialog is completely disabled, and all newly discovered players have a default stance of "war", that can not be changed.

The galaxy admin should set the rep-modifier to 0, when creating war-only galaxies.
Also, at this point I need to activate the "war-only" setting manually. Should you need this more often in the future, I'll add it to the galaxy-setting web-interface.

  RE: War-only galaxies

Thank you Erwin, This should bring some people back.

Right now it looks like the interest will be high, so we may need the interface should be added to the galaxy setup, to save you time.

WTG Erwin.

This will add a whole new exciting dimension to the game and make it a lot fairer at the same time.

Yes, it gives experienced players an advantage, but it also give inexperienced players the opportunity to learn from their mistakes and develop their skills.

So, lets get the first of these open ASAP.

Either Ting's or mine, either one will work.

  Asap

Yea ASAP so we can see how the new feature works out.

  RE: Asap

Cool! Thanks so much for your time Erwin. Miss seeing that change-log forum light up in yellow..

I think we'll do Multiglow's 1-hour galaxy first. I set up a 3-hour one.. but will open it a few days later for those who prefer to play at a slower pace (and of course anyone with the interest can play both heh)

Will pm you the galaxy details Erwin.

Ting,

I just set up a Test War Only galaxy with 20 min turns (it won't let me do 5 min).

It only runs for 200 turns but with the totally ridiculous setting I used, it will let us test the new code quite quickly even with only 2 or 3 players.

Could you have this one start on Monday so a couple of us play and test it all out.

Research is set to 10

Big planets lots of ships.

I have set it to 5 min turns - hope that was your intention?
Also activated the "war-only" feature for that galaxy.

Now both gal-id 804 and 805 have "war-only" activated. If you need any others, let me know.

I see only two galaxies, HoverVan and Return To Clirose. I Can see no War Only Galaxy.

Nick,

We can't see then yet because Ting has not opened them.

Once opened the "Test War Only" will be a really short 5 min per turn galaxy that a couple of us are going to use simply to test the new war only format and make sure everything works.

Once that is done, the galaxy is over.

The War Only Defend galaxy will be the first of the actual galaxies to use the new format (assuming everything works in the test galaxy).

Feel free to jump into either galaxy when they open.

I will be mowing all day Monday, So will not be able to test with you.

I will have to wait for the 3 Hour game.

Thanks for the info.

Nick

As of now, we are waiting for both galaxies to be opened for sign-up.



Posted by Erwin [CS] on 28.06.2016 at00:03:

 

Both galaxies are open for sign up.

No idea, I didn't know it existed.

  Password

Yes, the cutthroat, war only galaxy, requires a password. We cannot sign up without it.

  RE: Password

Sorry.. Forgot I set up a password.. I wanted to make it a forum signup at first..


Password is

craft

I guess we'll let in only players who check the forums..

Let me know if you guys want an earlier start date though.. I put it behind the 1h galaxy to give that one some room to get players too

  RE: Password

I wish we could start the cutthroat galaxy in one week instead of two. Smile
