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.
KingOfSwords (1670 D)
03 Jun 20 UTC
I agree that an option to close each chat would be useful. I don't really like the idea of automatic closing of all chats with eliminated players.
Oli (977 D Mod (P))
03 Jun 20 UTC
Last time I thought about implementing this my idea was to move the chat of all countries without messages and all eliminated players in a single tab with a dropdown-menue. But I had never time to code this.
bsiper (1373 D)
03 Jun 20 UTC
What would also be cool would be an only eliminated persons chat, for people to discuss what they think of moves as they happen
KingOfSwords (1670 D)
03 Jun 20 UTC
@Oli - That sounds like a promising idea.
@bsiper - It seems like eliminated players could already sign in with the current system and have conversations with each other. The only difference is that it is just one-on-one chat, and not group. I'm OK with waiting for the game to end to have group chat about what happened, the way it is now.
CalvinWallC (1188 D)
03 Jun 20 UTC
Has anyone ever thought about making group chats with current players possible? Like on large variants with alliances of more than two or three powers, a ten person group chat would be super useful. The only problem I could think of would be CRAZY crowding and cluttering if people start making lots of group chats with abandon.
Halt (1917 D)

Part of group chats is that it removes some aspects of trust from the game, and therefore the possibility of betrayal. One of the things you need to watch out for in large alliances is the potential of being excluded and set up for death, but in a group chat this is far harder to execute because why would any communications among alliance member occur one on one instead of for the group to see if you have nothing to hide?
Macca573 (1141 D)

Or if you can't have group chats, at least the ability to send one message to multiple powers?
BobMcBob (1281 D)

But you can't see if two players are conversing one on one, even if there is a group chat. They can just do it in secret, and the other players won't know. And anyway, in f2f diplomacy you can clearly see who's talking to who.
Halt (1917 D)

The ability to send one message to multiple powers is called copying and pasting. Just draft the message that it addresses all powers at the beginning such as "To the Atlantic Alliance" or what have you.

I'm not sure how hard that is to implement from a coding perspective, but it seems like a non-issue to me.

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?
