Town growth emulator in General

Town growth emulator in General

cool feature, Can you make it accessible from somewhere else then the wiki?

player info in Bugs

Hey,

I really like the new player info, where you can see played games and quests. However it seems that the played games page isn't correct, because it shows 0[0] for every game. If you click one game after that it shows the player gained points. example: https://citymania.org/users/profile/lol/games https://citymania.org/game/67056 However at older games it seems to work: https://citymania.org/game/66641

[Fixed] fast server change in Bugs

Hey all,

I noticed that the fast server change buttons are broken after the server was moved. I think you know already but this post just to make sure you know

lol

Citymania server organization in General

If you replace gamescript with normal cb you aren't able to bridge the roads in the start of the game (quite some people use it at the gs server).

I don't like the idea to choose at some servers how long you want to play, but maybe we can run the 2h cb instead. (1h we have already in blitz, so then you would have the same idea)

lol

PS I didn't really edit sabers post, that was only a misclick

I would like to see ecs back. I won't play six hours for ecs citybuilder but I don't mind if it will be 6 hours.

What sort of trainset GRFs did you have in mind?

i had a few grf's in mind. For the trainsets i thought of the most played:

  • nars (you don't get fast and strong trains for cargo compared to ice and tgv)
  • 2cc ( you too don't get fast and strong trains for cargo compared to ice and tgv)
  • ukrs (in this one you don't get strong and fast trains for cargo compared to ice and tgv either)
  • nuts (you need some time to understand how to use the trains in the best way)

for toyland we can run games with a default graphics replacement too( event had temperate replacement but mars replacement looks nice too)

lol

A double firs server seems a bit overkill to me. You are right that primair industries spawn in a group. Maybe we can make them available from !restart at server 4(should be doable because server 0 can do it too). Please note firs has more ways to start a game, for example oil or passengers/mail instead of coal.

Maybe we can do some games with another grf(I was thinking about a vehicles or industries) too, I don't know what our grf policy is(guess we don't have one so maybe make one). I know a lot of big goal servers playing with the default trains. Maybe we can attract some be players by some other train set.

Lol

Christmas Event 2015 in General

Why do you watch when you have time to stream?

[Fixed] !listgm / !restart broken/disabled on servers 1 and 2 in Bugs

i still can't restart server 2

lol

[Fixed] !listgm / !restart broken/disabled on servers 1 and 2 in Bugs

I had an issue like this too at server 7. I could not choose what type I wanted to play so I had to restart twice to get a temperate map.

Lol

Thinking of slighly changing the rules in General

hi great we get some talk about the rules.

I think there is a difference between self competition and rating pushing. Self competition is when you have 2 stations serving the same industry. Rating pushing is when you not always have a train loading at a station, but a truck with only that station in the orders, so rating goes up because every few days a vehicle arrives. If you allow to grow towns that aren't your own you will get that people grow towns in the order of 30k. I don't mind about this. If you are aiming for a good record you still need more towns for the vals. I agree that stationspread and road rules are hard to distinguish what is allowed and what isn't, so allow all stationspread is fine to me, maybe put some exeptions like chaining at the wiki(we got an topic about that at the old novapoliswiki, in the admin section if I remember right). Claiming land isn't a problem to me since the server limits it. We have to take a close look at the examples at the wiki. this is all for now I think, if I come up with something else I will say it here.

Weekly tournament idea in General

The Great part about the scoring system solo lroposed with tiers in it is to attract playera that never played citymania. If you want to finsh in the fop five you have to Be really pro. With the prize and tier idea we van maybe attract new playera to grow our community. I hope you understand what I'm trying to say

Lol

stream in General

we got this video from Gelidis: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47cNEH6Pn0c If you would like to see a lot of people playing try posting in this tread I think: http://citymania.org/forum/topic/42-who-still-wants-to-do-coops i'm willing to do an coop next week if more people have time

lol

[Fixed] !saveme command in Bugs

if you use !saveme command you get the message that all players are saved by default in the company. The main purpose of the !saveme command was to save your company from autoclean. This is an option that isn't available any more. I see a lot of autocleans happen nowadays, so can you reimplement this command?

lol

Weekly tournament idea in General

I know Dp has been working at some kind of interface for server configs to let other people do some work. I don't know how much he did already, but if that is finished maybe it is able for some other players to start the tournament maps without Dp and da being online

lol

Weekly tournament idea in General

hi all,

great idea. I have a few questions about it I can come up with now, maybe more later:

  • How many time will this cost for Dp and da? they already have put a lot of time into the servers, and this would require some smart scripting or being a lot online I think.
  • how can you avoid that players that can play very often get more point then others.( I don't have time every week to play 3 hours for a tournament) Maybe you can do this by calculating average points, and ask for a minimum of half the tournament games played for being able to win the prize?(I don't mind about the money because I want to keep it fun, but I can imagine some people will go for it)
  • If you want to have it to attract people, maybe the first tier is a bit big(people will come for the money, so if you want to get a lot of people you need to get an tier up to +- 15k I think)

Can some more people give their opinion about this?

lol

Who still wants to do coops? in General

i can do both in the evening, but i prefer Wednesday.

New command to restart servers and select game mode in General

Cool feature, great work. You said it isn't possible to restart a timetabled server, but later you mentioned a restart command for quests. So is it possible to restart a quest server?

Lol
