question regarding a variant.
How hard would it be, If there isn't one already, to make a variant where Switzerland is passable? I would like to see how that would play out, and would love to see such a thing implemented here.
Shep315 (1435 D)
01 Feb 11 UTC
i know there is one out there where switzerland is divided into two sc's
butterhead (1272 D)
01 Feb 11 UTC
I just wan't one where it is passable. no other changes, no supply centers or anything, just an extra territory...
Oh, i was going to say speed europa, but that makes a whole bunch of changes...

Would be very easy to do.
If we have some more in favor of this idea I can do this in 1-2 days (if I have some free time).
butterhead (1272 D)
01 Feb 11 UTC
really? that easy huh?
Shep315 (1435 D)
01 Feb 11 UTC
id play on it switzerland is very annoying as a stalemate creator
butterhead (1272 D)
01 Feb 11 UTC
indeed it is, and would also make it possible for Italy to border Germany without pissing off Austria.
(Or france)
I'd be up for it :)


Side note:
ALRIGHT, so, I know this one would be considerably harder if not impossible to code, but imagine the awesome if we (oli) did!
http://www.dipwiki.com/index.php?title=Rather_Silly
A related side note: I think the best way of doing that would be as a play by email map where the GM is clever enough with computers to make all this work. Anyone feel like a game?
I would like a variant where Switzerland is not just passable, but an SC as well.
http://www.dipwiki.com/index.php?title=Speed_Europa&from=Variants
like that?
butterhead (1272 D)
01 Feb 11 UTC
that would get rid of 17-17 draws, but It would be more interesting if there was no other changes to the map except that it was passable.
Kind of, but the map more...normal looking
why not do both, once he has coded a swiss pass variant, it would be easy to make it a swiss supply center right?

Also, no comment on rather silly?
Refering to Speed Europa
No comment needed on Rather Silly, other than it is, rather silly
But doesn't it sound like it would be a tremendous amount of fun?
Particularly being the mastermind I'd think. It would be fun thinking up questions...
butterhead (1272 D)
01 Feb 11 UTC
agreed with Imperial about rather silly.
and also, If it's easy enough, we could ask. Oli, would 1 with a center there and one without be easy for you?
BUTTERHEAD AND I AGREED TO SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OLI! MAKE A NEW SECTION FOR HISTORIC EVENTS ON THIS SITE! THIS NEEDS TO BE RECORDED!

butterhead (1272 D)

We agree that I kicked your ass in the war declaration game.
No you didn't! I maintain that I retreated before this could happen and instead you did that to the rebels. :P

whilst we're suggesting variants - what about Ancient Mediterranean with Chaos Builds?
kaner406 (2103 D Mod (B))
02 Feb 11 UTC
would this be difficult to implement?
Or a grey press with only grey chat
Oli (977 D Mod (P))
02 Feb 11 UTC
Ir's (usually) no problem to combine many different variants. But I'll try to avoid that, because that would cause a cluttering of the variant-overview. On the dev-boards we are considering how to implement custom options for variants, that would be a solution.
kaner406 (2103 D Mod (B))
02 Feb 11 UTC
good idea Oli - I look forward to it.
Same :)
Can we change the winning limit for SCs on frankland vs juggernaut? I feel like it is easy for one of the nations to get 18 centers by rushing the neutrals, but that in many instances the other superpower might be in a better position with his troops set up to attack and would in the end start winning.
I think a far better change to Frankland vs. Juggernaut would be to make it Entente Cordiale vs. Juggernaut. Frankland just has to blitzkrieg Scandinavia and grab Tunisia to win, and can spare incursions into the Polish Corridor and Italy to forestall the Juggernaut's advance; the Juggernaut has to find some way to deflect those invasions, build up enough force either in Scandinavia to hold enough centers not to need to attack Italy in force to win or in the Mediterranean to get as far as Tunisia.

At least giving them England/France makes it more difficult to get to Germany and does *something.* (Perhaps more ideal would be to make it Russia/Austria vs France/Germany; Austria's naval capacities are more or less equal to France's in the Mediterranean, in that they can capture Tunisia and Italy equally well; and then Austria is right on the stalemate line able to pressure Germany and take heat off of Scandinavia.)

Haven: Discussion about the custom-icons...
What do you think about the custom icons for the Haven variant?
Each power has it's very different icons for it's armies and fleets (and there's a small overview in the upper right corner).
Can you recognize the different powers by it's icons? Or would you like a "flag" for the units in no-sc and sea areas?

Haven Problem
I had a fleet in Cathal in the Haven game "First Game HAVEN"
Despite the fact that Cathal borders Crystal Lake, it will not let my fleet hit Crystal Lake, and now it is causing me to be stabbed because my ally thought I was "untrustworthy" for not hitting Crystal Lake. May this please be fixed so this kind of problem doesn't happen again?

Heaven's doubts
About the Heven map: Is it build anywhere?
How do exactly the Eternal-builds work? They count as natal SC for everyone? just that? Also, each country has a natal SC with an especial icon on it, similar to a tower (for example, Mt Nimro for the gnomes) does this SC have any special effect?

Colonial Dip- Trans-Siberian Railroad
Will it ever be changed to include the Railroad?
Its just every game I have ever looked at in this, Russia is the first dead, and Turkey, the closest neighbor wins as a result.
I really want to play this version, but I wont do so until Russia can utilize the one advantage he is given in this game. So my question is, will this ever be implemented?
