"To Your Positions" Update!
« on: September 29, 2017, 05:55:15 AM »
We are pleased to announce that the 1.0.3 Update, "To Your Positions", has gone live. Along with some major back-end changes, we're pleased to announce the following new features and fixes:
  • A new method for handling realm conversations has been implemented.
  • There are now 2 default realm conversations, one for Announcements, like elections, and one for general discussion.
  • Unfortunately, due to how these are handled, all realms will see 2 new conversations added to them, but...
  • The groundwork has been laid for allowing you to customize what messages go to what conversation (on the backend, at least).
  • Elections will only be announced in the announcements thread! No more election spam. Which is good, because...
  • Ruler positions that have an election type set will now use that election type when an election is needed and...
  • All election types are fully implemented.
  • All other positions will be inherited or have an election, as appropriate, when the positions is vacated due to death/slumber.
  • Positions will inherit first, if able, then go to an election, if able.
  • Positions have set election dates, expressed in Years and Weeks.
  • All positions are elected on the first day of that week, in an automated election.
  • Elections are now handled as part of the turn system, rather than when the election list is loaded.
  • This means that the vote count times are now 100% predictable.
  • Elections will now trigger again after 7 days, down from 15.
  • Previous position holders will lose their position only after the election completes, but before the winners are chosen.
  • Positions can be designated as having more than 1 minimum holder, which the game understands is the target quantity of holders.
  • New election type added: "by fortifications" that counts vounts based on the fortifications in a person's settlements.
  • Add election sub-types for "by land" and "by fortification" to only include land in the realm.
  • NOTE: Ruler positions will always cause an election if they aren't inherited! This election will use the set election type.
If you encounter any errors, please let us know ASAP so we can fix them! Thank you!
