The notices on my front page are all jumbled up in a random order. PMs from weeks ago are at the top, and some of my game messages from the past day or two are lower down. Is anyone else noticing this?

It's time to talk about Scoring
Hello all!

Let's talk about scoring? More specifically, about whether the dreaded Points Per Supply Center (PPSC) scoring should remain an option?

It looks great, but could I turn it off? I use a BlackBerry Passport, which has a nice big screen and doesn't need it.

Napoleonic Variant, and the lack of neutral centers
I had the honor to play 'Napoleonic' back in the lab (an awful game as Spain by the way). I had a question back then which I ask here and now:

Why there are no neutral supply centers?

Sengoku Nagashino Feedback Thread
Hi Sengoku Nagashino players - please deposit your thoughts here for designer digestion as the first round of games resolves.

Please do not directly comment on the situation/players etc. of any active games. Please limit your comments to the variant design itself, as it appears at gamestart. Once a game has completed, it is fair game for analysis, but not before please.

obsolete Sengoku variant
Hi all, designer of Sengoku here. I would love to get the latest version of Sengoku in use on this system, as it is much more balanced. Found here: http://dipwiki.com/index.php?title=Sengoku
Even if the DP system, can't be used, the version at http://nairenvorbeck.angelfire.com/ is still better than the one in use currently. Poor Mori needs a fair chance :-) Anyone willing/able to help me get these implemented?

New Maps
I'm super new to the site and I was curious how new maps were made and/or submitted. I noticed a lot of the maps look a bit old and it got me thinking about what it would take to create a higher resolution version of a game map. Are there certain file formats a map must be in or is this all a responsibility for site admins only? Thanks!

Imperium Diplomacy
Under the variants, I noticed one called Imperium Diplomacy, but was not able to create a game using this variant. Is it a discontinued variant, or under a different name? It looks like an interesting one, especially the beginning turns.

1900 for vDip: Progress Report (ongoing)
As mentioned in another thread, I've been working on the code and assets necessary to port Baron M. Powell's variant 1900 to vDip and/or webDip.

In order to keep myself accountable in some fashion to actually complete this task, and not just talk about it, I've created a small project plan where I can mark my progress.

Custom phase bug
This might be better in the Mods section, but I thouht I'd post here first to see if other users have any input.

I'm trying to create a new game with a custom phase length. When I select "Custom" from the drop-down menu, nothing happens. However, when I select "2 days, 2 hours", I've given the option to input a phase length. Hopefully this is an easy fix.

WWII Update Errors
Hello, I am currently in a game of WWII and I was just informed that it has been updated, "fixing" problems with dual coasts. This supposedly means that Palestine now has two coasts. However, I have a fleet in the Red Sea and it can no longer move to Palestine! Please fix?

@mouse: Please consider tying the vote, it is better than the alternative:

"It's rare that (in a relatively vanilla game where you can rely on no real funny business at night) I wouldn't be proposing commuting MyLo to Lylo, even though it *should*, theoretically, only result in the best/most townish villager being killed (and thus arguably not really helping your cause that much)."

@mouse and uber: teacon and DO both have a lot of experience playing with brainbomb, and they both scumread him after his fake claim.

Here is DO's advice before the Ezio's false modkill message confused things: "Ok town: lynch ezio and if that fails lynch brainbomb."

FINAL OUTCOME:


Those Heroic Warriors were just too much. He'd been sneaking and scheming his best, but at every turn a do-gooding do-gooder blocked his path... This time it was too much. He'd have gotten away with it too, if it hadn't been for those moralistic morons. His reign as Master of the Universe would come another day, but not today...

BOZO has been lynched - he was SKELETOR, the MAFIOSO.


GAME HAS ENDED - TOWN WINS!

Yeah, good game everyone, and thanks for running Jamie.

You almost had that, too, bozo. If I'd tied the lynch up, I probably would have stayed on brainbomb once you took out uber.

It's possible that Jamie wants to *play* a game, and a game run here on vdip is an opportunity for that to happen. While my time doesn't permit me to GM (or even play) at present, I'm sure there are other solutions somehow.

@Jamie, have you ever played on discord?
brainbomb (681 D)

If jamie wants to play I will totally join anything run here
Jamie_T (895 D)
25 Oct 17 UTC
I have played on Discord but it just moves way too fast.

I'm playing on Mafiascum - not completely fond of their rules but the standard of play is decent.

I will happily run another game here, or play if someone else is keen to be lead GM.

I will start taking sign-ups in a couple of weeks, aiming to start second half of Nov when the webDip game should be coming towards the end point.

Tactics
In year one when you just meeting everyone, maybe there anonymous but for sure you don't know any of them. How do you know who to trust?
They can be lying through their teeth and text doesn't show tone of voice or eye contact so you have no idea. If you believe them they may stab you. If you don't you venture into a DMZ and piss them off. Ask around to others and you get rumors or nothing. This game seems so much better suited to face to face.

Known World Tournament
Awhile back, kaner proposed a Known World gunboat tournament in which 15 participants would play 15 games, one with each nation. I searched back for the thread, then just decided to start a new one. I want to see if there would be sufficient interest in this to try to get it off the ground.
