Suggestions / Re: Rules about rivers
« on: October 21, 2021, 02:25:14 am »
Yes we have, and no we're not going to add a rule for rivers, personally i blowup everything near anything of mine and that's with everything shaded off (transparent).
They may look pretty but there aren't any rewards in existence that can lead towards a competitive victory.

Complaints / Re: Rule 3

Ok Doc, we'll keep an eye on him from now on, and try to catch him in the act to either ban or educate.

Ban/Unban Requests / Re: Why was I banned
« on: June 12, 2021, 01:03:44 pm »
I no longer have the logs, but i don't recall any such conversation (you were afk and unresponsive), (i had however flagged you up internally as breaking some rules a week before i banned you, having seen you repeat elsewhere).  So you were under the radar, then a further rule breach, found led to your ban.  I did notice you were multi-server playing at the time, and not being a rule, is fine, but if you're going to play say; s3 and s10, make sure the one you've left afk isn't cheating in any way.  The picture attached is my evidence.

Er, well what i'd suggest is that a pool of money is used so that a cut off period for server fee's can be supplied to the players (who by large wont be paying), for a 6 monthly period; thus a certain amount of money has to be in the account before the server goes live to ensure that it continues, when it's running out, the server will have 6 months until it's gone, or refunding is found.  Technical aspects aren't my forte.

Ban/Unban Requests / Re: Banned on all servers? Why?
« on: May 21, 2021, 08:22:41 pm »
From my point of view, when i locked the company who had been blocking, (another player had called for an admin to undo that), you joined spectators, and were in the company that i locked... Thus are you saying that wasn't you?, as it very much looked like it was...  i was surprised to see the company you were in sole command of, blocking as you're a long term player as far as i know, and it's unusual to see you breaking the rules, but, when i was there investigating, you were in the company that was breaking rule 4.  Therefore "I" banned you from all servers, and a usual duration would be 2 to 4 weeks, in your case, i decided to make it 2 days (as you're a long term player whom i've not seen cheat before).

General Chat / Re: Noise Limits
« on: March 25, 2021, 04:28:52 pm »
Yes in general they noise limits do stop new builds, but, the futher away you are fro a town centre, the less noise will be created by the new structure, for example, i can place the biggest airport (noise 25), suffiently far enough away to enable it be placed wehn noise is 23 (it's usually connected to a rail station so it's not actually as far away as it looks.

I suspect in your picture, the newest airport is sufficiently far enough away from that town centre for it to gain a noise reduction for itself; probably affecting itself as 2 instead of 5 noise.

So planting tree's is impossible?; that improves town ratings, and doesn't bankrupt you.

But i think it's always been that way, they don't like losing tiles be it from building stations/landscaping and the bulldozer, there are also other ways to improve the rating.

New Server Proposals / Temporal Loop server
« on: December 08, 2020, 07:27:24 pm »
First off; it's super likely for me to believe this will never be made, but i think it's do-able. (as a non coder :P)

The general premise of this server, is time periods which offer different approaches to the game (also anarchy...), time periods as in 10 minute windows (the duration can be later determined), where upon restrictions and/or their removal is allowed for the duration of that window.

For example:  3 players connected, everyone's playing fair, 1st window comes up:  "rule 3 void" :), so for 10 mins rule 3 violations can be made, placed and stored (stored as in date stamped with inclusion of 10 min window's title and when, so that it can tie in with the ? tool for date verification should players call out rule 3 violations made in a point other than a window that explicitly allows it for admins to check up on)

Initially the example of "rule 3" would be the easiest to test. but in time, all the rules could be added, along with the anarchy setting (no rules).

Whilst all aspects of this idea would require collective improvement (as in the community), some things i'd want to be included are:
1) Window actions incur a CV penalty, dependent on rule used (weighting for community to decide), as to allow the purist gamer to prevail in theory...
2) Some rules are beyond revocation, namely the swearing to offend and racism.
3) The windows preferences (the list in which it uses to decide what to offer) is randomized (and possibly for duration too).

Should the idea be popular the server settings can be comprised at a latter date.

Suggestions / Re: POINTS on server 5 & 8
« on: November 19, 2020, 05:20:14 am »
Well, you know we've already talked about this, and whilst my last game on s5 was robbed off me to the tune of approx 750 points (desyncing approximately 40 times in the last 2 hours of gameplay), i'm not overly keen on implementing scores for effort alone, but then i'm not in a position to make changes for or against.

New Server Proposals / Multiple/Repeating Timegoal
« on: August 29, 2020, 10:20:55 pm »
Could we have a compound version of a timegoal where upon say a growth percentage is set (10% for example), then every 5 years a company exists they have to exceed the 10% target or be removed from game, therefore the players will score higher with more cycles having achieved their own goal each time.

A medium sized map or larger would be nice, any year/climate.

Complaints / Re: Points and game times not recorded on website.
« on: July 15, 2020, 09:48:13 pm »
Yes, well you've not logged in to any games for the scores to be calculated.

When we join a server, we have to login via the game login screen using its generated 4 character code in game (therefore using this syntax): !login XXXX
the xxxx is the 4 character code you can get from clicking the game login link.

************** taken from the game login screen link ******************
Manual login
Your token is: XXXX

This token is still valid for 120 seconds.

Simply join the server of your choice and write !login XXXX in the chat (press enter for chat mode). For the login it is not necessary that your in-game name matches your username. You will be renamed automatically upon login.
If you play on n-ice or BTPro servers a lot you should check one of the more convenient options below.

Whereas in game if you forget whether or not you're logged in, you vcan check via !cv, this will tell you how many points you currently getting in the game you're in, but i use it mainly for finding out if i had logged or not.

yeah i did... :) i don't think i'd make a good coder :p

New Server Proposals / Mixture of x4 and s8
« on: February 25, 2020, 08:14:24 am »
Well like the title suggests, i'd like to see a timegoal server using s8 maps

Instead of 9 years duration like on x4, i'd suggest around 30 years for this version.

The only other thing i'd like to see, for this idea, is a 5 minute forced spectator mode at the start, so that new games, (if voted for) allow a window of time for everyone to get ready for the start :)

Start Year: 1997 (but starting 1st July so that forced spectator mode caters for the remainder of the year, and a new game starts afresh 1st Jan 1998).
End Year  : 2028 (so that all of 2027 can be used)

Server 7 Temperate Small Goal (25 Milion Goal) / Re: Tips for best score
« on: February 13, 2020, 05:29:52 am »
Well, max64 I've seen a few times, and he tended to use far too many engines to enable a higher cv quicker than usual...  Careful though as there's a known cheat which is similar; in which you can rush the cv by buying loads of engines which if not used is considered cheating.
Despite my own and others suspicions, I've never caught max64 cheating, but in my opinion, getting 84 points but more so finishing in 2 years is impossible (given to finish in 2 years you have only 7 quarters as the 8th quarter is the start of a new year - so approx 20 mins)! but if you can do that, that's how to get a good score :)

on s10, (death valley) max64 would use his company hq in a corner and send a pax train with 1 carriage of passengers and the rest engines, presume another strategy he may of used on this server too.

Ban/Unban Requests / Beetstreet cheating.
« on: February 11, 2020, 11:17:58 pm »
Since S8, was unusually empty, i started a game there. it's not finished yet, but i shall win...

Beetstreet a registered player, is here too, i've salutated him and chatted a bit, to be ignored, which is not what this post is about.
I had been sleeping for a few hours, given my income was enough in maglev 2 to finish in good time, so this is why i greeted him.

So, i'm browsing the map following the chat :), and what do i find?:  See attached.

As they're blatantly cheating, this tells me why the silence.
