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.

Vdip colour scheme
Hi, I think vdip would be more successful with a different colour scheme. Also less painful to look at.

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?

not quite ready, but... SE Asia 800
going to refine Balkans 1860 and Sengoku: Nagashino as needed before trying to implement this one. Thought I would just give y'all a peek behind the curtain. Thoughts welcome! (it has a few known imbalances to address, but it's close.)

Classic 1898 Variant adaptation
I do the adaptation for 1898 variant. Who knows the author of the variant to mention him in the description. Or it's Hasbro itself?

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.

Classic Mini-Tourney - Is there interest?
I thought about making a mini-tourney - comprising a single game - using a similar scheme to most Face-to-Face scoring systems.

Basically it'll be a Classic game, running until Fall 1907 and a PPSC structure. The bet would be 100 points - for a ultimate pot worth 700 points.

Unable to enter certain orders. How to contact GM
Can someone help. I am playing one of the odder variants. New for me. I’ve read the variant page repeatedly and seems I ought to be able to enter a certain order. But it’s not available as an option. (Maybe I’m missing something. Or maybe a bug). Emailed the mods. But how do I contact GameMaster min a gunboat game?
Thanks

The link explains how limits on Rookie games are dealt with, but what about how a final Reliability Rating is achieved? Or, when does a player stops being a Rookie?
CCR (1672 D)
05 Oct 17 UTC
The player stops being a Rookie (for RR purposes) after someting like his hundredth phase (orders received).

How the Reliability Rating is calculated? The cube of the mean of % received moves and % finished games:

> RR = ((noNMR + noCD)/2)^3, where
> noNMR = 100*(phases - NMR)/phases
> noCD = 100*(games - CD)/games

Thanks a ton, both Oli and CCR.
Enriador (1491 D (B))

@CCR,

I found a problem with the formula. I am really dumb at math so if I am stupidly wrong I am very sorry!

My RR according to vDip is 97. However...

((98,18 + 100)/2)^3 = ~970299. Where is the 97?
Spartan22 (1706 D (B))

Enriador,

I believe it's simply a technicality of cubing a percentage. Your noNMR and noCD numbers are actually percentages and so is their mean.
(99.18%+100%)/2=99.09%

You're not simply taking the cube of 99.09 as a number, it's:
(99.09/100)^3= ~970299/1000000=97.02/100= ~97%
CCR (1672 D)
05 Oct 17 UTC
Yes, sorry, I meant
> RR = 100*((noNMR + noCD)/2)^3, where
> noNMR = (phases - NMR)/phases
> noCD = (games - CD)/games
Enriador (1491 D (B))

@Spartan

Thanks for the clarification! I wonder why the "breakdown" at everyone's profile doesn't include the "100*" before "((noNMR + noCD)/2)^3"...
Enriador (1491 D (B))
06 Oct 17 UTC
So after all, the formula is truly this one @CCR posted before:

> RR = ((noNMR + noCD)/2)^3 = XXyyyyy..., XX being the final result.
> noNMR = 100*(phases - NMR)/phases
> noCD = 100*(games - CD)/games

The full formula should be in the FAQ!
Oli (977 D Mod (P))
06 Oct 17 UTC
You don't use your numbers correctly.
Mathematically 98,18% is 0,9818 and 100% is just 1.
So the calculation is: ((0,9818 + 1)/2)^3 = 0,97294768 or 97,29%
As you see the Reliabilityrating has no %. So 0,9729 * 100 ) 97,29 => R97

How does vDip currently adjudicate when more than one player meets the SC requirement for victory simultaneously? More details below.
