Need some help with understanding the 'extends due to missed turns' mechanism
Hi All!

So, I have a turn I just missed (I'm a bad person). What surprised me is that the turn processed with all of my units having "hold" orders.

Black Lives Matter
I saw that WebDip has put a little header on their website in support of Black Lives Matter and the protests in the United States. I thought it was a really good way to use their platform for good and I was wondering if Vdip could do something similar?

What is a "turn"?
I was just wondering what counts as a turn, for example for "extend the first X turns". Is "Spring 1901" a turn, or does it count all phases, or does it count the movement and build phases but not retreat?

Suggestion: Close chat option
On large variants, having lots of chats open makes the mobile interface quite cumbersome. It'd be nice if we could close chats, or if chats with dead people closed automatically.

New Concept: Squadrons
This is just an idea I had: What if there were squadrons (a group of planes) in vDip?
They would be able to go on both land and sea territories, but of course there's a catch, or they would be OP.
The catch: They would not be able to capture territories.
Any thoughts?

I've seen this before, but they were called wings instead of squadrons.

The challenge is to give players incentive to build one, when they could build an army or fleet that *can* capture territories instead.

I feel like they would be useful for breaking up stalemate lines, but I doubt they would be useful in the early-game. It would also probably make convoying troops over less useful, since if you want to take an inland province you just need one or two troops and enough planes to push inland.

I could see it being a huge gamechanger for England, but not really for any other power.

I wonder how they would change the game in a variant with a transform option?
drano019 (2443 D Mod)

Unfortunately, from what I recall hearing, vDip's code only allows for two types of units per map. So you couldn't have armies, fleets, and squadrons/wings on the same map.

That said, in PBEM games, there's a variant called New World Order that has this concept. Wings can fly over any territory and airlift (basically convoy) armies over land, but can't capture SCs. However, they can "bombard" an enemy SC if they end the fall move in it. It basically makes it like the SC temporarily doesn't exist for the owning power, reducing their build count by 1 until the wing is removed.

It's a fun variant! But beware the nukes!
I assume the planes in your mind will be able to stack on top of an existing army or fleet to add one to the strength? I recall something similar in the Middle Earth variant giving Gondor this ability to create stacked soldiers that attack and defend together (@drano you probs remember it too).

But then in that case the plane is not really a "special" unit because ultimately it drains the same amount of resources for the same effect (i.e. one SC for one plane to add one strength in combat), just that now you give it a bit of the Risk element by allowing stacks.

But of course if what you have in mind is the New World Order version then it's a completely different (and more attractive) thing.

The code currently allows only 2 unit-types, but so it never officially allowed the transform command too.

It's just not easy to implment, but not impossible. That said I don't have the time (and coding knowledge for the javascript-part) to do this, but if someone else can code this (without breaking compatibillity with the main webdip code) I would certainly run this code here too...

Good day.
I am playing this game and it happened to me to move a fleet and it took the order wrong and went elsewhere.
It may have been a mistake, but now, the next turn, she won't even let me give her an order. It doesn't show me like a fleet of mine in the game.
How do you do with these things?
