Replace PPSC with something rank-based?
I've put together a length proposal over on PlayDip to provide a rank-based scoring system for draws that's similar to the Carnage system used in several North American Dip tournaments today.

Notifications by email?
Is there a way I can get email notifications for my campaigns? I haven't gotten any at all, and because of that I've lost several games.

Advertise your NON-live games here!
In an effort to compromise the pro-ads versus anti-ads for games: Post here for your non-live games to cut down on the number of ads but still advertise games. Post game link, WTA or PPSC, and the bet. Note: this doesn't count for special rules games.

WWII Tournament
I would like to start a tournament. I've seen the Known World and 1v1 tournaments, and those are great fun. So why not apply it to World War II? I'm still working out the details, but I'll post some details.

Playtest of variant
Hi! I am trying to organize a playtest of a variant I created with some unique rules that made it not possible to implement on vdiplomacy (yet!). I have called it 'Feudal Diplomacy'. [See below for details!]

Sandboxes?
Does anyone know any good adjudicator, online of for Mac, that I could use for playing around with positions?
Mittag (1582 D)
Sat 09 Jun UTC
I have jDip installed, but it is waaay to buggy. For example I can't save games...

Backstabbr has sandboxes online but their interface is ... awful.

Backstabbr is very good.

If for some reason you prefer Android, I really enjoy the Realpolitik app.

Try the Politics Order Judge, which is web-based, so there is no download or installation needed: http://gamesbyemail.com/Games/Politics/Judge

You can turn it into a sandbox on your Mac. To clear the map and build your own scenario, click the "Clear board" hyperlink under "Other:" and then drag and drop the units from the white box to wherever you want them. To come back to a scenario you've created, copy the Permalink to the right of the board.

If you want to install something, Realpolitik has a Mac version too. Isn't there other software besides jDip and Realpolitik? I can't remember since I never installed any of them on my PC.
Mittag (1582 D)
Sun 10 Jun UTC
I'll check out the Realpolitik app - it would be nice to have something on my phone either way.

JECE, I couldn't understand how to resolve the orders in the Politics Order Judge. I mean, you can see what the result will be in the picture, but how do I move on to the next turn?
Mittag (1582 D)
Sun 10 Jun UTC
Ah, I didn't know about Realpolitik for mac - I'll try that one!

There might be more things for PC than what there are for mac.
JECE (1184 D)

Mittag: Right, I don't use the Politics Order Judge to take me from turn to turn.

If you want something for Android that takes you from turn to turn, you may want to try Little Dipper:
https://www.getjar.com/categories/all-games/board-games/Little-Dipper-388543
The app was coded by webDip user SunZi years ago and uses webDip code. Unfortunately, the app no longer works very well as a sandbox because the last listed feature ("editing of units and supply ownership", see the last screenshot) requires the Android menu button that has been eliminated from the Android OS. If you just want to keep track turn-for-turn, though, the app still works great.

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.

Taking over Civil Disorders should be free of charge
Reasoning: the player who takes over a Civil Disorder is not just putting themself in a precarious position (as they must evaluate everybody's styles and strategies) but they are also saving the game's balance and fun.

In order to reward/incentive people to take more CDs, I believe that making it free of charge (rather than current 50% discount) would be for the best. Thoughts?

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.
