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".
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: 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: 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
RE: Player Bonus Settings Revamp
I guess it depends on how much room it'd take for #1. if it stayed on the same line and just went to the right of the AI it'd probably be ok. I guess quite a few of the popular maps use bids where they might not change much in settings so would be one less click. Maps with lots of players might get crowded if they have to have their own line.
I'd say yes for #2. The more flexibility the better imo
RE: Newbie questions re install & asynch games
@kirk_dunkirk Hi kirk
Yea, you need triplea installed. Pretty sure your buddies machine should work. Idk a whole lot about it, but my machine's over 10 years old.
You can save games online or any way you play, so no worries there.
I would suggest asking @Panther . He's very knowledgeable and explains things in a polite manner.
