Feature Requests / Re: Make Peace Temporary
« on: January 25, 2019, 09:07:33 PM »
This is basically what the Treaty System was intended to be.

One of the major reasons the Treaty System was scrapped before it ever went fully live is that all it really does on this front is make what people want to do mildly frustrating.

If people want to maintain a permanent alliance—and they do—this just adds extra busywork to that.

if they want to remain neutral/at peace with another realm permanently, this just adds extra busywork to that.

For the most part, diplomatic statuses in the game aren't prescriptive, they're descriptive. The players feel a certain way towards the other realms, and the diplomatic status is their in-game way of representing that. Nothing we do to change the mechanics of the diplomatic statuses will significantly change how the players feel about the other realm.

Definitely an interesting idea. Not something I'm likely to be able to work on in the short term, and I'd probably change it some...but I do like the idea of temporary things to make it attractive for realms to invade their neighbours.

Temples absolutely do cap follower count, in ways I've wanted to fix for years but haven't found the time or the math to manage.

How useful is it really to have a scout report of a region that's a week old?

By that point, any troops in the region are likely to have moved on.

All Character Fame ranking numbers are relative to the continent. I don't know offhand what the Holy Man numbers in particular represent, but nothing on that page can be meaningfully compared across continents on an absolute basis.

"More war" is not an end in itself. "More war" is a means to the end of "more fun."

It is our hope and intention that the changes we are making will lead to "more fun."

Feature Requests / Re: Edit function for statues and monuments
« on: January 02, 2019, 05:23:51 AM »
If that is the case, you only need to limit it to the description only and not the actual name of the statues or monuments?

Right, because no one would ever find a way to abuse that...

Triple-check your work, and if mistakes sneak past—as they do sometimes in real life—then live with them.

This was deliberately left out so that you couldn't just replace every monument you happen to come into stewardship of with one of yourself for free.

I'm adding a note making it clear that you can't edit them to the page where you create them.

I'm sorry, but I can't help but read that as "limit alliances to the size of my own alliance bloc". Lurian bloc members demanding a limit of 33% when their own bloc forms almost exactly 33% rings obnoxious to me, doubly so given they were what caused these alliance blocs to begin with.

Sorry, Chenier, this proposal's been on the table since long before the current Dwilight status.

If there's any particular situation that prompted it, it's the Cagilan bloc on Atamara.

Was it a voluntary choice to implement the TO restrictions below a certain density, before implementing the hintherland feature?

......No, someone held a gun to our heads and forced us to implement that...?

Of course it was a voluntary choice. The TO restrictions are a band-aid that took all of a few minutes to implement; Hinterlands are a major feature branch that might take months, depending on how things go.

Not a joke.

The current hard cutoff on TOs based on player population is adversely affecting gameplay at this time.

Maybe consider it a reminder that this is something we need now much more than we needed it when TOing was more open.

Something like this is now becoming necessary as many realms are hitting the "maximum size" they can expand to.

It's not just "on my list," there is literally only one thing before it. Once I have the Compact Realms mini-project done, this is the next new feature I'll be implementing.

I'm not sure how much clearer I need to be at this point...?

In case this is not a joke:

A version of this is already on our public Developer Roadmap for the near future. We're even calling it Hinterlands.

There are a number of things I'd like to give Lords the option to fill automatically from taxes; this is one of them.

Nope. We removed this for a reason.

The hypothesized effect of increasing turnover never materialized to the extent that would warrant the feature's existence.

The downside you cite is, in fact, exactly what happened instead.

Dwilight / Re: Shameless Astrum Recruitment Thread
« on: December 12, 2018, 02:11:12 PM »
On the other hand, if someone prominent in Astrum holds these as ideals, and people join Astrum expecting them, they can work together to make the things he says true.

If, on the other hand, everyone just says, "Astrum is terrible, don't go there, no one ever does anything," then there's no chance for the realm to improve.
