Game base mapEdit

The base map.




General RulesEdit

  1. On nation per user.
  2. Expansion in extreme climates like Greenland, Niger, Nepal and Amazonia will be very slow due to logistic and climate problems for any wood-be invader. Hyper-expansion is not fair.
  3. Technical and scientific development is at normal rate and with out premature and/or 'hyper-development' of technology. The Modle-N Ford car was invented in 1906 and British Commit Tank was invented in 1943. A few years early OK, but decades out is daft/ASB.
  4. It take 1 year for a super power (USA, USSR and China) to build 100 nukes, 2 years for other nuke using industrialised nations (France, UK, India, S. Africa and Israel) to build them, but if your nation is industrialised and dose not have any nukes (Germany, Canada, Australia, Poland, ect,) then it will take 5 years to invent them. Any one can buy nukes from those who are willing to sell them.
  5. Wars will use a War Algorithm . The result is placed here War Algorithm result page for record.
  6. You must be plausible and sound believable.
  7. Each nation fall in to a power category, +1 for each category. If your a failed state or city state 0. If you're a super power +5.
  8. We will have resolutions at the U.N. security council. Also see- International Court of Justice (ICJ), World Health Organisation (WHO), United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). and Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NNPT).
  9. Edit the game in Source Mode. Editing in Visual Mode and creating code problems may result in your edits being undone or full of garbled data.
  10. Research your nation on sites like- Wikipedia, the BBC, CNN, ITN, Encyclopedia Britannica, and so on. You could fined handy stuff like this Lithuanian did have a navy, army air-force and natural resources in 1933!.
  11. 1/2 a game year per real day.
  12. If new turn is not started by mod, player can still post player events, but before post he must write year. For example year 1947 ended and mod did not started next turn. Then player writes: *1987.5* Countryname: Country improves economy and blah blah blah.
  13. Game is archived every 10 years/20 turns.
  14. A new image file is created for every new map, which is created every two years.
  15. After a nation has been inactive for 5 years (10 turns), the user will be removed from the game.
  16. You may create proxy nations and use them in turns.
  17. Limited O.T.L. desasters, such as earthquakes and tropical storms will occur. Mod event's that are real life events, not daft or bias.
  18. No aggressiveness directed toward other players or off-topic feuds.
  19. There will be 3 mods.
  20. There will be map-maker and a map-maker deputy to take over if the mapmaker is away or ill.
  21. Hyper-development, wizards, E.T.s, fantasy and/or sci-fi are not to be used.
  22. 1 turn per OTL day. 1 turn = 6 months ATL game time.
  23. A new turn starts at 22.00:00UTC.

Technical dataEdit

Mod RulesEdit

  1. Mods must be plausible and must not target any particular nation.
  2. Carving large empires is NOT a cause for mod targeting, unless the empire is silly or unfairly won.

Vassal RulesEdit

  1. Unless the vassal can provide real military aid to a country, it cannot be used in an algorithm. For example, Poland and Mongolia can provide military assistance to the USSR, but Tannu Tuva and Danzig are vertulay useless, so use you common sense!
  2. Vassals may declare war instead of the actual suzerain nation.
  3. Some rebel armys and terrorists are in legue with nation states (exsamples- the Contras worked for the U.S.A., F.A.R.C. worked for the U.S.S.R. and the P.L.O. was a Libyan terrorist proxy.), these also count as vassals but use difernt rules which are listed in a lower section.

Terrorist and rebel groupings rulesEdit

Terrorists can do things like the [1] and [2], so +1 to the nation your helping and -1 to the victim nation. Special forces and home land security forces can be used to defeat them as in [3] and [4].

The mods will aso help or hinder terrorists with the use of 'public opinion' and wartime morale. Eventually most nations, save for a few like Israle and Russia, will get fed up in time and want peace.

Rebel groops like UNITA, the Contras, Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, FARC and the PLO do controle some land and so count as a (illigal) city state in places like [5] and [6]. They count as Vassel states, but can also commit acts of terrorism.
