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.

Hello!
I have been banned from webDiplomacy because Zultar wants it to be a safe space for neo-Nazis and other white supremacists.

You nice people will have to put up with me instead (until I get banned here, I guess).

I've been Boursed!!! 2016
Hi all, when Amby and I were recording our recent podcast (diplomacygames.com) the topic of Bourse came up, and I got really excited and thought that I would try to get another game of this variant running...

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.

Thanks Hirnsaege and CoXbot, and Captain/Doc for getting the word out. It appears that we are ready to go into games #5 and #6 with Scuba Steve replacing Mapu. We should probably confirm the interest in the existing waiting list as well since at least three active and reliable players are expressing a desire to participate.
I'm back from my whirlwind of travel and workload, and will return to my normal level of engagement here. Apologies for any delays my absence has caused, and for my shoddy play in the meantime (though that applies more to Sengoku games than this tournament - I'm going to owe a major apology there!). Anyway, I'm trying to catch up on everything and will get the next games going within the next couple of days unless someone beats me to it.

I reviewed this thread to figure out the discrepancy of Argentinean Empire not being on the list. It appears eliwhitney added his name to the list without any discussion about being a replacement, so he might have thought he was joining a new tournament. Also, Maucat had previously asked about joining the tournament, so I think he should have the option to join assuming we need a replacement for Argentinean Empire. Shah has expressed interest in the tournament as well if Maucat and eliwhitney are no longer interested.

I also express interest if others are no longer interested...
So sorry folks. Looks like tomorrow before I can do this (I know you've heard that before). I'm just barely getting my orders in right now, just continually crushed. If any of our senior/experienced members want to create the games in my absence, please do, just follow the same settings.

I have sent out PMs with links/password for games 5 and 6. The roster is as follows:

1. Amby
2. Desert Fox
3. kaner
4. CoxBot
5. Utom
6. Dr. Rec
7. Eki
8. RUFFHAUS 8
9. mapleleaf
10. Leif_Syverson
11. mouse
12. bozo
13. ScubaSteve (replacing Mapu)
14. Hirnsaege
15. Maucat (replacing Argentinian Empire)


In addition, I have created games 7-15. The password is the same. These games are staggered to begin months away, with join phases extended well into the future. You may join these all now if you like, though the intention is simply to have them on my homepage, ready to go when we are. As games 5 and 6 progress, we'll have a "ready-to-go" list for the next games, as we've been doing. None of games 7-15 will begin before we agree to do so.

7 – gameID=30921
8 – gameID=30922
9 – gameID=30923
10 – gameID=30924
11 – gameID=30925
12 – gameID=30926
13 – gameID=30927
14 – gameID=30928
15 – gameID=30929

Really sorry this has taken me so long to address.

I also have to mention that players have contacted me regarding the pacing. First and foremost, remember that in this tournament we have an agreement to ready orders. If you must use the full time, so be it, but please be considerate and prioritize readying orders for this tournament -- especially for retreats and builds. As for frequency of games, I hope that pre-creating all remaining games will reduce the chances of more delays caused by me, so we can get new games started as soon as all are ready for them.

Is there a plan to unpause the games? I haven't set any orders in 5-6, just curious what, if anything, I need to do. Or are we waiting for 3-4 to end?
The games will be unpaused once Captainmeme has a chance to shuffle the nations.

Courtesy note:

There are multiple players feeling increasingly frustrated that others are routinely not following the agreement to ready orders as quickly as possible. I think we all understand that there are times when the whole phase is needed to avoid NMRs. These games happen over months, and life is fond of unexpectedness. However, this tournament will drag on unnecessarily and risk incompletion or player turnover to the point of losing any meaning if we can't all put in the effort to keep things moving.

So please prioritize these games and ready orders as a courtesy and showing of respect to others. Thank you.

To Everyone in Furnace of Affliction
I'm really sorry, as I was trying to fix the Indonesia Build bug the game sent everyone into CD and cancelled itself. This was because I forgot about another bug - if you enter all holds, it counts as an NMR even if saved, so when I tried to advance the game 2 phases it assumed everyone had NMR'd twice (even though I'd set hold orders for everyone).

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?

Common Courtesy?
Over the past few weeks i've noticed that there is an awfully lot of NMR's and CDs happening. Many of these take place in a later stage of the game with no extended phase in place.

In-game messaging with multiple players without Global Chat
Hi everyone,
I was wondering if there is a way to send messages to multiple players without using the Global Chat. It would very practical for players that are in a 2+ people alliances as they don't need to rewrite everything again for each ally. Is there such a thing yet? If not, I hope a developper passes by and makes a note of this. Thanks!

Public messages hidden from non-players
I noticed public messages in games are hidden from non-players, even for finished games. Does anyone know if this was a deliberate decision on vDip? On webDip these are visible to non-players, which is interesting for looking at the player dynamic or end of game commentary.
