I actually PM'd halo a while back asking for his action. Never got a response. If I do continue this, his colony is gonna go down regardless of his return.

Sorry, I didn't know when we were continuing due to the lack of updates and whatnot. So i'm supposed to do my orders now? or wait?

You guys want your Christmas miracle?

Here it is :p

Work on this game will be continuing soon, in Caek-time. I've come up with a system that should streamline the national resources, which were the biggest bottleneck of this game, because in all honesty it took me longer to deal with the resources than it did to write the damn rolls.

Using Keb's roll as an example, this is the current system.

Quote:
Colony Statistics
Population & Consumable Resources
3996 colonists.
Housing : Enough housing for 5000 colonists.
Food : 12,000 - 4000 = 8,000 + 6000 = 14,000
Water : 49,000 - 8000 = 41,000 + 15,000 = 50,000 Full capacity - excess lost.
Consumer goods : 5000 units of consumer goods. Consumption paused.
Industrial Resources
800 units of metal.
93 multirole industrial machines.
Power generation : 97 units of unused power per turn.
998 - 2 = 996 units of heavy metals.
Military Assets
Thirty crewmen.
Five firehouses.
10 ATV-R vehicles
Enough equipment to equip three hundred soldiers.
1950 units of ammunition.
300 A+ rated harsh environment suits.
25 specialist weapons.


And this is the new system.

Quote:
Colony Statistics
Population & Consumable Resources
3996 colonists.
Housing : Sufficient for entire population.
Food : Yes, with positive food production and storage for four turns.
Water : Yes, with enough storage to maintain water supplies for five turns.
Consumer/luxury goods : No production, but there are more than enough goods to go around.
Industrial Resources
800 units of basic construction materials.
93 heavy machines.
Electricity : Yes, with Excellent supply.
Fissionable Materials : No production or enrichment facilities, but storage is at full capacity.
Military Assets
Thirty soldiers.
Five firehouses.
10 ATV-R vehicles.
Enough equipment to equip three hundred soldiers.
1950 units of military supplies.
25 heavy military equipment.


It might not be obvious what some of the changes are, but simply put this vastly simplifies the cargo system. Several resources have been folded together on my sheets, especially in the military supply area, with spare parts, ammunition of all kinds (except very special stuff for later in the game, like nuclear warheads, etc) and fuel/energy cells now being one large resource. Aviation grade fuel is thus a part of military supplies.

But for regular supplies, systems have been simplified as well;

Water is assumed to always match needs so long as the infrastructure is sufficient, and can fill storage tanks just as before. Whenever your population gets high enough to start jeopardizing the supply of water, the display will go yellow to warn the player to start building more water supplies. And with the water tank system maintained, it is still possible to siege a player into submission.

Likewise with food! Production will go into yellow if you're not producing enough and red if storage is critically low. Storage is now a number based on well, storage vs population. Don't worry about that :p

Consumer/Luxury goods have been simplified and merged together : Still working on these, but they might be split again, with consumer goods necessary to maintain colony morale while luxury goods increase it. But you won't have to worry about them being consumed by the population - they just need to match or surpass the number.

Electricity is again a yes/no variable, and the various systems I had planned for fissionables have been condensed - while no one is at the point for it yet, reactor grade and weapons grade isotopes have been merged together along with yellow cake, but remain separate from radioactive ores.

Soldiers have been similarly merged together - everyone who serves in the military is now a soldier, regardless of whether they are infantry or vehicle crewmen.

Combined with more self restraint on the roll sizes, this should be sufficient to get the game going again :p

Oh yes, it's happening!

And to celebrate the return of the thread, on the next roll everyone is guaranteed at least a four on all actions.

Make the most of it, kiddos :p

EDIT : Oh, and can you guys post your new actions beneath this post? It'll make keeping track of the actions a little easier :D

>"Proceed further toward the great work of ensuring housing for our entire population within the security of the mountain."

>"Burrowed drip-irrigation lines are to be laid within an area ten klicks square by the mouth of the fortress (here designated Ensk-CGPD), directing our water excess into the creation of a bloc of moist arable land. Researchers from our Agricultural Committee will oversee and direct this work, selecting prime rice cultivars from our gene bank and any other crops which may be suitable."


>"I give you authorization to create a cell of well-armed internal investigators with orders to probe this illicit zone of the ship. Give them isolation suits and maintain constant communication via a guarded wire towed by a designated man - if things go poorly, as I suspect they might, any division of the party will mean murder. If the tunnel contacts are our own, however, do not let our men be the first to open fire! We need answers, not an immediate bloodbath."

If the post looks weird, that's because I'm not anywhere close to anything with a keyboard and am doing it on my phone. And looking at my older posts, I just... I actually want to smack myself for my own stupidity
Ps: happy holidays!

Nah, it's fine :D

The only problem is, what do you mean by "Get the colony up to full production"? I need you to be specific :p And remember ,you've got three actions, not four.

:s

The problem is, that doesn't really work as an action. You can't just say "Go to full production", it's just too wide an action, with over a dozen ways for me to interpret it.

Here's some valid actions, for example, though all of Keb's are certainly fine :D

Send out surveying teams to find natural resources, like water and ore.

Setup quarries and mining equipment.

Construct ore foundries inside the range of the colony ship's defense grid.

Use the industrial machines to till the land and tap into underground water supplies to create irrigation for crops.

See? Easy! :D

Where is everybody?!? I can't restart this RtD with only two players! I know about Unwoundpath (Gotta finish their roll first), but that's no excuse, Tomaster/Foa!
