Sorry, but I disagree from the point of view with this proposed feature, that it will create the same situation that occurred with the old paper game.
People will winge and wine and argue about 1PP or 5 or so money points.
Even with bugs that are in the game, gamers can work around it, as if it is a rule in the game.
Its about playing the game, for what you can do or not do, not "If I winge enough for long enough Ill get my way anyway, to convince the GM to see it my way in the end"
This will leave it open to making decisions about small issues that I have seen of late in my view, and does not contribute to playability, and reducing it to a fewer nitch players only.
This will not in my view contribute to community based game.
These are the things it would allow corrections for:
1) Docks the declaring power 2 PP for a multi-district minor DoW, but only gives 1 back when he conquers it?
2) Grants the navy heading out of a blockaded port wind guage, thus allowing victory in an battle he should not be able to win?
3) Forces a corps invading a port to forage when there is a depot available for invasion supply?
4) Prevents the corps in #3 from besieging the city, because it has already foraged (even though it did not use movement points)
5) Economic manipulation was tallied for a nation whose national capital was occupied, forcing him even further into instability (and, eventually, fiasco, since he couldn't turn it off until he had won his capital back). This DID give him a few troops, but since it took away most of his money, they weren't very useful.
All of the above (and more) occurred in ONE pbem game within the first two game years. The game editor is to be used to correct for bugs in the game, rules violations (by the computer), etc. It is absolutely essential until the game is perfect (in other words, forever).
1. Should be fixed within the game.
2. Should be fixed within the game.
3. Should be fixed within the game.
4. Should be fixed within the game.
5. Should be fixed within the game.
6. All future and current problems should be fixed within the game.
We are sitting on patch 1.02k and the game is really not "release" ready still, after 6 months. I just think that rather than spending time to make it so that the admin can correct for all the programs shortcomings, why not just fix the shortcomings?
The admin/host shouldn't have to constantly be checking and correcting the programs problems. I believe that should be the developer/distributor's job.
All the checking and correcting is going to add more time to the game, put off new players, etc. If you are going to do all this checking why not just use Cyberboard or Vassal?
