Noticed no PRs on Git. Don't recall ever seeing that. Haven't seen @ssoloff in a while. Hope you're still a part of the program : ) Thanks for your work.

Global 40 House Rules
I know there's not many or if any : ) Global players here, but figured i'd post this in case someone who's interested stumbles across it. : )
This was originated by Black Elk over at the A&A .org site. While it has morphed into something a little different, the core ideas remain.
Basically, it adds house rules to the Global 40 game using technologies and map options. There are currently 47 or so, of these.
These are house rules that experienced A&A players have used over the years. Wanted to add the ability to try them on triplea, hence this thread. : )
Anyway, if you're interested, it's under "Experimental" "Global 40 House Rules" in "Map Downloads".
RE: How to Delete maps From "triplea-maps" on Git
@LaFayette Thanks for the replies everyone. Yea what happened was is a couple years ago I added Schultz's map with the dashes then added another one with the underscores when I saw dashes weren't supposed to be used. I couldn't delete the first one and asked someone to do it but... so anyway, there are two right now.
I wasn't real familiar with git then and not a whole lot better now : ) although i did learn about the rename thing today : ) so I thought I couldn't delete the one with dashes and turns out I can't.
Yea Panther was correct as I've deleted repos before but "settings" doesn't show up for deleting the schultz map. So yea someone else will need to do it.
RE: How do you modify the Map Rules?
Welcome to the site. What you need to do is set the appropriate "gameProperty" to "true".
<property name="Shore Bombard Per Ground Unit Restricted" value="true" editable="false">
"Pact of Steel 2" explains how to mod the xml. DL in "Download Maps" when you start up triplea. Then go to your triplea folder and open "downLoaded Maps". Open Pact of Steel and keep opening until you hit "games". Open that and POS2 xml will be there. Make your changes and restart triplea and you should be good to go.
I'd recommend reading the xml multiple times and always refer to it to really understand how it all works but for what you want to do just set the gameProperty to true.
To clarify you would make the changes to the map that you're modding obviously. I worded that poorly
can set isDestroyer to affect less than all subs
you could have 1:1 or 2, 3 etc...
See you've been doing a lot of good work lately redrum. Just wanna say good job : ) and thanks too all the devs and other members that are getting the new site dialed in. Good work everyone !
When Triplea First Starts
I always have to move my window to the right and down so I can see all players, games and chat.
Any way to make some sort of default ? I'm used to it but new people might not be.
Is that what you guys get when you log in to lobby ?
Not a big deal obviously but something I've been doing for years so just curious.
RE: Favorite Playlists & Songs while Vanquishing foes
@hepps This came on during a sea battle. u-boat had slayed a couple DDs and did some Convoy damage then underwent and survived heavy DD depth charge attacks as well as ASW capable Tac Bmbrs. Took two turns to slink back to the Kriegsmarine, but we made it.
Ordered minimum watch and told the rest of the crew to hit the Bar : )
Had to look it up on youtube. Seems even more apropos after watching it. Being the 4th for us Yanks and all heh heh
RE: Can you play against another person over time?
@joe_s Hi joe
This should get ya started: link text
I think it's mostly up to date. If you have any trouble ask @prastle and he'll dial you in.
You can play by forum here as well
RE: Favorite Playlists & Songs while Vanquishing foes
Been a while so why not : )
Thinking Japan on the March : )
actually this one is better : )
RE: Global 40 House Rules
Update to 2.646
Changed Tacs hitting Subs to “1 in 12” and allow them to stack again when “Planes Target Naval” is activated. They also hit Ships the same way now.
Primarily to help Japan with mid to late game Sub spam. Also help the Allies in the Atlantic, although this doesn’t really seem to be necessary. May still be an issue (Sub spam) but I’ve yet to see it prevent a win. “Attack0 Cost5” Bombers are another concern, but once again, I’ve yet to see them prevent a win and there are Options available to counter them if needed.
Biggest concern is Tacs ganging up on solo BBs, CAs and CVs. However, it does represent Dive Bombers and ASW planes well and while not ideal, subs can still be used as hit soakers.
Basically the “Big Boys” shouldn’t be sailing without support, which is an okay thing imo and they still get to shoot back : ) Well not the CVs…but…
Of course this is only an Option Lots of ways to play
At any rate...that be the update
RE: Stream Hosting Games
@LaFayette not foolhardy at all imo I know I'm more of a nuisance than a help not that I try to be, but you guys have done a ton of work. It has already paid big dividends . Confident in a huge payoff coming up.
A lot of people play triplea, even if not noticeable. I think it makes them, usually :), happier than if they didn't. It's a good impact you all do for just better all around good things.
Oh yea, and when you're doing a bunch of stuff at once, it does take longer. It took me 3 years and 3 days to reroof my cabin lol. I really kicked ass the last 3 days
