Re: Way to know if your teammate has the terr. of your spoil

Sometimes, I think, if it were possible, people would opt for a hand-holding feature, where someone visits your house and holds your hand while you take your turns.


It can be very tough on big fantasy maps or maps in which players are unfamiliar with the names.

Tough how? Confusing or time consuming? I'm one to believe it's a matter of effort, which makes this suggestion radically more frivolous than so many other great ones that have been proposed. I suppose if suggestions were implemented at a reasonable rate, I wouldn't dispute this one.

As suggestions go, this is one of the most trivial to implement and won't really stop us from implementing others. We just need a consensus on the best way to show it.

Fair enough, then I like Doom's suggestion of a bracket, though instead of asterisks, I kind of like [these guys]

To avoid confusion, I don't mean to replace the [show teammate spoils], that'd be ridiculous. I mean that my own spoils, or his own spoils, might nuke HIS or MY territory RESPECTIVELY, and there is no way to know that unless you look through the map to check for names.
Nothing will come of nothing.
The next image is a sofilorry, or an absolutely indifferent sofilorry who ensofilorriates and rabbits eat elephants.

Re: Way to know if your teammate has the terr. of your spoil

I had a thought as well where rather than having individual spoils, teams have a pool of spoils that each player team puts into that evey player can take out of. That way if 1 player has 2 greens and 1 red and another 2 reds and 1 green, they can share from the pool and have 2 sets of spoils, adds to the teamwork as you'd have to agree on who takes the spoils....

It makes sense, like our own spoils are Bold, teammates spoils should be "noticeable".
The questions is , can you do that only on nukes games?, it would not make sense on any other kind of spoils

He is being misunderstood.
Lets say I have Woods Camp1 Tunnel 3 and Throne as my spoils on Siege. My teammate owns the Throne, so currently it shows up as neither bold/bracketed in your spoils inventory. He wants maybe the spoil Italicized so Woods Camp 1 Tunnel 3 and Throne to show that your teammate owns the spoil without having to double check before cashing. Theoretically it only becomes extremely important in Nuclear Spoils but can be implemented on all modes to reduce the coding hassle.

Re: Show Teammate Territory Cards Owned in Bold

Postby usidyr on Wed Oct 30, 2013 10:13 pm

I sorely miss this feature. I suggest { bold-italics } in curly braces to indicate spoils owned by teammates.

Why is this in Implemented? I just looked back through some games, and I don't see my teammates cards being differentiated from cards corresponding to other territs that I don't own.

could someone make a clear concise description of what this suggestion is? the subject and OP conflict, and the mod edit statement is not clear. i do not have have time to read through it all and work it out. screenshots also would be great.
