Suggestions / Re: Return of the experimental servers
« Last post by Chucky on December 25, 2020, 08:05:13 pm »
The experimental servers have been offline for some time now.  Will they be coming back?
I quite liked the 50k cargo one, and the single depot one.
Well, since the servers are gone  I also thinking about an implemation. Maybe a rejoin instead of server #4 which is quite empty. A poll could be a good start or people could leave are message here.

Maybe they could be online in rotation (X1 on Monday, X2 on Tuesday etc.),  or that might be too complex to implement.

I've seen these comments about the goal on the 50k cargo game:  http://www.n-ice.org/openttd/forum/index.php?topic=718.0  Maybe for something difficult like mail the goal could be reduced from 50k to 10k,  and for something easy like coal increase it to 200k?
not doable right now

If the servers are not coming back,  can the quick join buttons be removed from the patched client?
Hehe.. this suggestion also was told today to server owner, so it´s history.

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.

Dear Support!

I just registered to your site first time, however, my ip is blocked and I can't play. Could you please add my ip range to the whitelist?

Thank you so much.

In one of the latest updates have the local authorities become stricter? It seems if I buld a station or airport & I don't put a bus stop in straight away that I go to Very Poor status for quite some time ... even when the station or airport is well serviced.

Maybe it's always been this way and I never noticed.

New Server Proposals / Temporal Loop server
« Last post by Kyrre 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.

Hello dajaku,

first of all sorry for the late answer. Your ban triggered an intense discussion internally, and while it is yet to be fully settled, I feel we are already in position to offer you an explanation and  a short summary of what happened.

I'll refrain from mentioning admin's names, since the underlying issue goes beyond theirs position and responsibilities. It is a matter that needs to discussed among operators, those who are responsible to dictate which policies should be followed within n-ice.

So, it has been noted you use the !voterestart feature quite frequently, and there were a few instances that its use was selfish and it could be interpreted as a form of sabotage. Today you were seen using it again in such manner, completely trashing a 12 hour effort of another player. As it was a repeated "offense" it was decided to give you a temporary ban of two days.

After your attention call, I started investigating. Your ban was immediately lifted,and we started discussing how to proceed. Preliminary conclusions:

What you did cannot be considered an "offense".  !voterestart is a feature from n-ice, it is up to us to decide when is allowed and when it is not. Besides it is something that you can do without even realizing or be warned that you are thrashing another player's effort; The fact that it is a repeated offense, and you have been warned about that does not do you favors, but for the time being no action will be taken.
That being said,  !voterestart has to be changed so situations like this cannot happen again. Most likely it will be changed to better articulate with !saveme, and goal progress.
In the meantime, you should refrain from using !voterestart in long goal servers when there is as much as a single a company with significant progress.

It is quite late so I might have missed something, feel free to ask.

BR,
iSoSyS
