BM General Discussion / Re: 1 Ruler Per account
« on: March 18, 2019, 12:51:33 PM »
Yeah, my bad.  I have not payed attention lately, but I was specifically thinking back to the time of Fingolfin. 
I believe he ruled Thal for a very long time.  King of Kings and all. 
Pretty sure he ruled through 2 or 3 different invasions before he finally left.

Well my first response would be.. 'So what?'
This probably means he is doing his job well. It is not a democracy where elections are run every month.

People can always rebel, protest, secede, ...

And yet, how often does the leadership of Sirion, Obeah, Thal or most of the larger realms change?

Yeah, rulers changed quite a lot in Thalmarkin. Not sure why you include that one...

Scouting from the travel page is actually something I've had sort of poking at the back of my mind for a long time. I think something like that would be an excellent idea—just have multiple links after each region you can travel to, one for travel, one for scouting. (Suitably separated, to make it harder to misclick.)

The political map doesn't currently have popups, and it would be non-trivial to add them.

Yes, I agree with Delvin & you OYK, that is a good idea we should be looking at.

I read other day thread similar to idea I had, was doing the researching. Everyone like the idea.

From seven years in the past.

With the people saying "I wish I am dev, can help". The same people still here saying "I wish I am dev, can help"

For seven years, could learn to help. But they do not, I think, so much.

THIS is what I do not like.

If my idea is good, if my idea is bad - I *shrug*. But I do not like the only negative all the time talkers.

Already I ask about the volunteering to Vita. I will volunteer for where ever the need is.

YES! I am the new player, only 3 weeks in the game, and already I ask "How can I help"

This is more I think than many talkers who are here only talking for the 20 years

Hold one mate.

A lot of people want to help. A lot of people do in various ways.

But a lot of people would offer their help in a blink of an eye if they could provide something useful.
Learning to code is not something all people are open to in sparetime. And that is alright, pretty normal thing.

Don't judge people for playing a game and just occasionally logging a feature request idea instead of offering to code it for us 'because they could have learnt it in the past 20 years'. That logic just doesn't add up.

We appreciate your efforts on proposing new stuff. Hell, new players are an absolutely important source to help us know what could keep newbies around and what not.

But please keep it civil.

BattleMaster is essentially a TEXT based game. 
This feature would not really add anything to the game that is not already possible.
A little less convenient and maybe not as "pretty", but possible with a few clicks of existing options.
Personally, I would rather see Dev time spent on things that would add to or improve the game.

For me it seems like this request is trying to move the game more towards a graphic oriented game where we can click on pictures for actions instead of words. 

I am also a firm user of the political map.  I find the dynamic map very aggravating as every time I try to move the map around to see a different area, a little box pops up (a nice box if that is what you want) and hides part of the screen.  I close the box and as soon as I touch the screen again, the box pops up again to block my view. 

As for scouting from the political map, I do not always want a scout report when I am looking at a region on this map.  I would hate to loose hours receiving scout reports that I did not specifically want.

I'm finding myself strongly agreeing with this.

It's a 'nice to have', but certainly not something worth current DEV time to be honest.

I don't think it would be too difficult to add a link to the box that pops up on the Dynamic Map when you click a region that lets you scout that region.

Adding more icons to the Political Map would, I think, be a mistake.

Unfortunately I'm also not a very big fan of Dynamic map and even if such button would be added, I would continue to not use that map  :)

Very cool. It's super needed!

Well, I wrote it at the time because I thought 'this is how all the other websites are doing it'. And not just games... Think about sites or apps like Tripadvisor, Swarm/foursquare, Playstation games, even professional Forums I'm on from Oracle for my job have these kinds of badges or achievements.

Clearly, it attracts people to earn them. Perhaps retains people to earn more.

Yours is more detailed, which is already a good basis.

Probably hell to implement, though.

This is what I mean, thank you!

Send report, but do not make it a new report message for me

---

These other ideas are maybe good too, but that one is my request.

I agree with the quote of PolarRaven and the summary of OYK.

Other ideas can be talked about, but I don't think Vita approve this thread because of Zakky's suggestion.

Anyway, thanks for logging it on bugtracker.

Feature Requests / Re: Alms for the Poor
« on: March 16, 2019, 11:15:12 AM »
Needs a time-based limit. Only allow action every so often.

A delayed event like a region buff? People remember you giving alms to the poor and like you for it for x days, depending on how big your donation was?
Like

Donate 25 gold - region buff for moral increase for 2 days
Donate 50 gold - ^ for 3 days
Donate 100 gold - ^ for 4 days
Donate 150 gold - ^ for 6 day
..

Just giving example of course.

This would work similar as to other region buffs that peasants remember for a certain time.

I think we can get back to the point of this discussion now.

Scouting from the map or not.

Feature Requests / Re: Customisable Duchy Shares
« on: March 15, 2019, 08:32:20 PM »
Can you make sure to warn people in red texts when you implement this since it will change a lot of current tax settings?

I think that is definitely a lessons learned from last time.

Hey, I was working on this last week, for all hierarchy levels. That is rulers can set customized tax rates for each duke, dukes for each lord, and lords for each vassal. Should be available when we do our next live update. The fun part will be the update, because most likely *someone*'s tax day will happen shortly thereafter and setting default values until players adjust the actual values.

I'm not sure if I understand it right. But can't you make sure that:
- Realm share for all dukes to ruler is the same as current realm share?
- Lord share to duke is the same as the current duke tax?
-...

That way, the 'default' after the update will not affect anything, only if people start knowingly playing with the numbers...

I think I gave you a wrong idea. I meant the part where the game sends you messages. Reports themselves will still be available. Just that the part where you get the notification on someone sharing reports get reported later.

So just to make it clear what exactly you mean:
1) Wimpie scouts a region
2) Wimpie hits the button 'share scout report with army'
3) Zakky wants - at this time - that there is no message to the army about it
4) Scout report will be available in the Scribes page
5) Later - at a defined x hours - all the reports will be reported as 'These were shared in the last X Hours' to the army

If that is the case, as I initially understood, still find it terrible idea. So marshals would need to click scribe page and hit refresh to know if someone scouted? Not a great idea.
Also the amount of effort to code this outweighs the actual use for this.

In my humble opinion.

1) Hunt report expire for advies
2) Prisoner released/escaped - I don't know why this should concern everyone in the realm
3) Duchy report - should only be limited to dukes (at the moment it is for everyone in the duchy)
4) Region Control Activity - Knights should be removed. Should only concern the lord
5) New workshop - should only be restricted to the lord of the region (or at most duke and lord)
6) Scout reports shared - Can the game report this like once every 3 hours or something? At the moment it just sends out a report every time someone shares it. Also it does it for every single individual report. Instead maybe the game can collect a list of them and send out a report where it displays all the scout reports shared in an array?

First time I hear someone complain about people scouting. Collecting them and sending it out every 3 hours must be going against what every marshal/general wants nowadays, no?

I know this has been fixed for certain other messages (like supporting TO messages don't go to your own character anymore).

But this was fixed just by excluding your own character in the recipient list.

It's probably not that difficult to do this for this specific message as well.

Anyone has a list of messages where this annoying?
