Known World 901

#1 Post by Tanteno » Mon Apr 09, 2018 3:28 am

What ever happened to the known world map? Why can't we play it anymore?

It was buggy so they removed it.
But I don't know if someone is repairing it.
I miss it so much.

Makes sense I suppose. I never got to try it. It got taken down about a month after I started playing on the site, and I never got around to it. But it looks great and I love the idea of so many players in conflict without the over reliance on fleets. I hope it comes back. It would bring some much needed variety.

You can play Known World 901 on vDiplomacy.net. That site contains a lot of variants in general, so if you like variety, it should be quite suited for you.

(If you register at vDiplomacy, please never play PPSC scoring though.)

They also have Western World 901 on vDiplomacy.com - it is similar, but smaller in map size and player numbers. I prefer it to Known World myself.

I think it's hard to fill games at vdiplomacy. I prefer playing KW901 on WebDip.

Hello all. Thanks for the kind words on KW901.

Tantrum, I would be interested in knowing why you find WW901 preferable to KW901.

Hi David... probably just a personal preference. I find 9-10 player variants the best mix of size and wieldiness; Aberration and Colonial 1885 being two of my favourites. Maybe it's also because I don't think I have done anything but fail spectacularly at KW 901 yet. :-)

I'd like to have the transform option in WW 901 though. That's fun.

I am not a fan of the transform option.

I don't share this experience. Filling games at vDiplomacy is certainly slower, but far from hard. There are four games of a 50-player (!) variant running at the moment, I don't know anything harder than that.

Tips:

1) Make the variant's "Joining pre-game period length" be 10 days.

2) Give it a low bet entrance (5 points are enough).

3) Advertise it on the forum.

Bom dia Enriador.

Enriador has graciously decided to put in some work to add some of my other variants to vDip.

Yes, and some have included many more players because of NMRs.

Sadly (and I mean that genuinely; I love KW901), the map was coded in a rather disorganized manner and it just doesn't mesh with what webDip needs to be comfortable hosting a variant. It risks breaking itself and breaking a lot of other things if we host the games, so we deactivated the variant. It is still available on vDip and if anyone would like to get a KW901 game going on vDip but use the webDip forum to find players, I don't think anyone would have an issue with that.

Hey David, boa noite!

Currently I am working to port David's 'Spice Islands' to vDip. Once it's ready I will let you webDip crowd know.

Thank you for the kind words on Known World 901, all. Each of my variants is a labor of love, so it is nice to hear praise for them.
