A unit can cut support if it itself is only tapped as well, but it does NOT cut support if it is dislodged by two completely different units, right?

Scoring System Proposal
I don't know if this has been suggested but:

2. If there is a draw, it's always a seven* way draw regardless of elimination.

Best way to learn code
I want to learn how to code, but am having trouble deciding where to start. Their are many free resources, online classes, boot camps, etc. I would prefer to teach myself, but lack the knowledge to know what language I should be learning first and so on. Any tips from the experienced code writers here on WebDip?

Removing Known World and Keeping World
See inside.
zultar (3900 D Mod (P))

Hi all,

Unfortunately, there are problems with Known World that we did not know about. The codes for this variant are not clean and there are issues with the order logs and how things are stored. While it can be played for now, it's not stable and it will eventually cause more problems. Consequently, we will be removing it as a variant. As such, we will not be removing the World map variant. We may even work on porting the Vdip's version of World over as it corrects for a number of issues. In the mean time, we will keep an eye on how many world games are played and if this is a small number relatively to the other variants we have, we may still replace it with *hopefully* another variant that works.

Who needs order logs anyway - we can enjoy the mystery of not knowing what that holding unit was really up to when it attempted a convoy.

May I suggest the World War IV variant? It's unfortunate Known World will be going. It feels like one that fits well here but if it doesn't work out then it's for the best.
VIKING DIPLOMACY variant is the best after Classic.

To elaborate further; there are problems with two things in KW901:

1) The Transform Units code, which is horrifically written, and doesn't really work here; and is genuinely unsafe to keep on the site in the long term

2) The Neutral Units code is also poorly written and, amongst other things, messes up the order logs. This, whilst less of a problem, is not an easy fix either.

It is a shame as KW901 did indeed appear to be fitting well on the site, but this isn't a decision we've taken lightly. It's simply too dangerous to keep code that volatile on the site.


Regarding WWIV: I was in the first ever game of that on vDip; and it got force drawn because after a certain point; there were so many convoy options that it essentially broke the site. Whilst that was eventually got around; it's not something we can ever risk on webDip. So I can rule that out from ever being ported over. Any variants with special rules also run into the same issues about just how those special rules are written.

Chaos and Haven are the two large variants on vDip which have "clean" code, and we could certainly look into them to replace World if there is enough genuine interest.

I wanted to make sure it was clear how we'll be removing Known World. This weekend I will be disabling the ability to create new Known World games. Once all current Known World games have completed I will be completely removing the variant from the site.

It is my hope that eventually we'll be able to correct or adapt the variants code to be safely compatible with this site. But for now we aren't able to do so.

Oh well, I suddenly started playing World so I could be in the last game & I'll bet there's been a jump in the number of games of World being played recently. I had a look at the variant information on the new game & map and came away wondering about the complications caused by these rebellious nuetrals and the exorbitant rent on the Pharoanic canal, only one year per sc, I'd want two years per sc was I being forced to lease something my own slaves died building.

Kudos to zultar and the mods for making this decision. Removing KnownWorld and keeping World is an appropriate course of action, given the condition of the maps.
bo_sox48 (4238 D Mod (G))

Both maps are pretty terrible in their current condition, it's just that World isn't going to break the site. We are still working to replace it.

New Scoring System Proposal
I don’t know if this has been suggested but:
1. In draws have everyone alive share the pot equally (As they should because SoS is garbage)
2. In a solo, the soloist gains a portion of the pot equal to 18* divided by the number of centers controlled by the soloist or survivors (but not neutral centers or those of resigned powers) and the survivors split the remainder proportionally based on their center count.
*Or however many
