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.

Deep philosophical question about American culture
So I teach at a major public research university. And I keep noticing that my male students in their early 20s seem with a surprisingly high probability to be intimately familiar with the movie Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood. This movie came out when I was in high school. And at the same time, they seem ignorant of In Living Color which is readily available on Youtube. So why DBAMTSCWDYJITH and not, for example, I'm Gonna Git You Sucka?

Game set up - NMR
I want to set a game so that it never processes a turn with out orders. I think that is setting “Turn” = 0.
But if I set “Delay”= 2 does that mean a two day/phase pause before that player is kicked? Or is he kicked immediately and there are 2 days for a replacement to appear. In the latter case what happens after the 2 days?

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?

Hi Oli - Yes, neutral armies in every non-player owned SC. Perpetual hold orders. No need to lock the pot-type. It is build-anywhere. Thanks!

everything okay with the coastal sea rule? It was intended to make coding for adjudicators and vdip easy, but intentions aren't always reality
Oli (977 D Mod (P))
07 Nov 17 UTC
If I see this correct, coding wise I just connect the coasts of the territories adjacent to these coastal-seas...
you do, sir!
Oli (977 D Mod (P))

Hi Benjamin.
Coding is nearly done.
Can you please name the countries and what colors to use?

http://www.vdiplomacy.com/sengokunagashinostartbmp.bmp

PS: all neutral-SCs are occupied by a neutral unit, right?
All neutral SCs occupied by a neutral army, yes.
1 - Shimazu, dark green
2 - Mori, dark blue
3 - Oda, dark red
4 - Hojo, tan/brown
5 - Uesugi, purple, or any other contrasting

Thanks!

The Multiple Coast Adjacency is valid for fleets only. Rules should let it more clear.
CCR (1666 D)
14 Nov 17 UTC
@Ben, are SSJ and NSJ supposed to be adjacent?
Hi CCR - SSJ and NSJ are not adjacent, the title and rules callout is functional for instruction and an impassable space (though it didn't look good in brown :-)

I'm not sure I understand the multiple coast adjacency question, can you please elaborate? If there is ambiguity in the rules, I definitely want to resolve that!
also, I would like to highlight the non-hopelessness of Mori's position ;-)
CCR - Armies may also use the coastal adjacencies, if that is the question. This is to highlight the extreme rarity of large scale naval conflicts in this period, and the regular use of small transports of armies (that in no way constituted fleets.)

For gameplay purposes, I gave the example F Nagato S F Iwami - Tsushima is valid and succeeds in dislodging the neutral army with F Iwami - Tsushima. This move also succeeds if the fleets are replaced with armies, or any mix of fleets and armies. Is that the question?
one final post - may I ask for a few non-gunboat playtests? Of course all playtests are welcome and appreciated (and the game has been tested quite a bit already!) but I won't know for certain if Oda's position in the center is balanced until they can actively negotiate (read, threaten) and play their peripheral neighbors off against one another.
I'll join a full press play test for you, Benjamin.
Thanks YCHTT! Greatly appreciated

All coastal adjacencies should work now.
Make a post in the modforum if you encounter other bugs.

Just a reminder for the "official" handling of bugs in games:
1. If you found a bug and can't enter your (valid) move: We will fix this as fast as possible and extend the current phase of your game, so you can enter the move. Just make sure you have some alternative-orders given, we might not fix the bug in time for the turn processed, and we do not rollback the turn.
2. If you found a player that took advantage of an invalid order: We will fix the bug and reprocess the last turn (if the game did not process and further). The invalid order will be set to "hold".
3. If you found a bug and can enter an invalid move move: We will fix this as fast as possible. Please do not enter this move (see rule 2).

Make sure to link to your game in question, mention the turn/phase and the move that caused the bug.

I think we should reduce the amount of Oda's starting SCs to 5.
Benjamin, should I set up a full press game now?
Anon (?? D)

Fullpress Playtest #1 - gameID=33085

Unrated 2 day phases full press Sengoku6.
Yes, please do set up full press games! Thank you!

I will consider Oda's starting SC count (along with position, and any other feedback pertaining to the other player positions) after the playtests, but what I'm seeing thus far certainly does not suggest that is necessary. I am watching Mori most closely at this point to ensure I have done enough to strengthen that position. Most of the games running presently are gunboat/anon though, which favors Oda significantly. (though Mori is flourishing in at least two active games I see!)

BenjaminHester, is variant already released or you are going to make changes?
it's released! I have a Sengoku: Nagashino game created and waiting for players now if you would like to join. Getting some great info from the two games that have completed already, and all the others that I'm spectating. I'm cautiously optimistic that this one is already very close to balanced, if not there already. Oda does not appear overpowered (perhaps in gunboat) and all other positions seem to be getting positive outcomes in at least one or more games. Very excited, I poured a lot of effort into this one.
(I just realized I may have misunderstood Flame's post) - the variant is released for play, but I am certainly open to suggestions for modifications. I don't know that any of my variants are truly considered "final" - maybe Dark Ages.

1 v 1 games on variant maps
I am not a coder (sic) so I was wondering how hard is/was it to code 1 v 1 games? Is it reasonable to think that variant maps (Modern, Ancient Med, etc) could be set up to create 1 v 1 games? The idea of having a larger group of countries to play against each other is intriguing. I just don't know if it possible, or doable.

How old school are you?
I am not very tech savvy so forgive me. I think I started dip on some RSS pages using Netscape at work in maybe 1996(?) does that make sense? All email based through Judges. What were they called? USDJ or something. I remember FROG but they all spoke French. Haha. I used to stand outside my office in the snow smoking a cig with a hand drawn map with about 100 crossing out for each phase using coloured pens. Ah web based interactive maps?!?! Luxury!!!
