Haha, this game. Awesome as shit. If you're going to create a world where immigrants are executed on sight without a trial in an Arch-Conservative society, shouldn't other C+ issues (per the wiki's explanations) be equally drastic? I know for an absolute fact that, for example, on Women's Rights, the C+ stance if this were to even mirror the real world should be "women are treated as property, like livestock." The "second-class citizens" denotation is more "C".

I mean, seriously the C+ stances in a game such as this shouldn't be more liberal than the Arch-Conservative positions in real life what are you some kind of socialist pfffffffft.

Hello, just a heads-up: I fixed a bug in the main source while working on the Terra Vitae mod. The bug occurs in the recruitSelect() function in Activate.cpp:


Quote from: old, buggy code
   for(int i=0; i<options; i++)
   {
      // Dynamic difficulty for certain creatures, recalculated each time the function is called
      if(recruitable_creatures.type == CREATURE_MUTANT)
      {
         if(law[LAW_NUCLEARPOWER] != -1 && law[LAW_POLLUTION] != -1)
            recruitable_creatures.difficulty = 9;
         else if(law[LAW_NUCLEARPOWER] != -1 && law[LAW_POLLUTION] != -1)
            recruitable_creatures.difficulty = 6;
         else
            recruitable_creatures.difficulty = 2;
      }
   }

The nature of the bug is that mutants become common when LAW_NUCLEARPOWER and LAW_POLLUTION are conservative, not when they're arch-conservative (in fact, arch-conservative is treated as equal to liberal in this code). It can be fixed by changing the "!= -1" to "!= -2", which will make the mutants appear in arch-conservative society as they are supposed to.

I've fixed it now, but I didn't do as you suggested as that still gives an odd result when the laws are arch-conservative. Another part of the code makes this bit somewhat pointless though as you are always guaranteed to find at least one mutant if you're looking for them, regardless of the difficulty to find them.

The difficulty for when neither law is arch-conservative should perhaps be 10 because then they'll be impossible to find just as they are in sitemode with those laws.

Also, consider the case of (pollution = C+, nuclear = C) or vice versa.

Hmmmm. That particular snippet doesn't appear to affect spawnrate at all, only the difficulty of recruiting that specific creature.

If I'm to assume that more liberal laws equal more difficult recruitment, the first if should check for "law[LAW_NUCLEARPOWER] >= 0 || law[LAW_POLLUTION] >= 0", and the second one for "law[LAW_NUCLEARPOWER] == -1 || law[LAW_POLLUTION]  == -1".

I don't like the strict inegalities for this kind of check, hence why I didn't use "> -1" or "> -2"

It affects the diffictuly of finding mutants using the recruitment activity. The chance of encountering them during site visits is elsewhere in the code.

That's what I've figured, but since it wasn't explicitly stated, I mentioned it anyway.

A quick and easy improvement suggestion:
Second rate and worse armor should not be worth as much to sell.

Armor.cpp, line 159 172 in the svn repo:
long Armor::get_fencevalue() const
   { return armortype[getarmortype(itemtypename())]->get_fencevalue() / this->quality_; }

Hey guys I was thinking on a new idea which can be implemented. I was thinking about this last night and I thought why not share it here. The point of this idea is to make sleepers a bit more effective as well as giving you an insight when and where a possible Police/CCS/Fireman etc. attack is possible. This is done through making your sleeper hear gossip if for example is located in a bar/park. Of course this will be given a chance according to how many sleepers you have in that location.

Here's a breakdown, here you have a fastfood worker (Mario) who is a sleeper working at his usual place, the FastFood Shop:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mario walks by two biker men chatting about somekind of assault.

Biker 1: "Well where is this going to happen?"

Biker 2: "Downtown, its possible that those bastards are in the Greenday Apartments."

Biker 1: "How many are we going to be, we don't know their numbers and who knows how many weapons they have?!"

Biker 2: "Don't worry we have about 4-6 squads armed to the teeth, we should be in and out in no time."

Biker 1: "Hmm, ok I'm in and when?."

Biker 2: "Next week."

Mario leaves quickly before the bikers notice him.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This idea will allow the player to have the ability to react before the assault begins maybe buy weapons or move quickly to another place. Not only will this be used to prevent assaults but also find other interesting events such as a "Famous Local Conservative is going to visit the CEO building tomorrow" or a "Famous Conservative is going to appear on television tomorrow". This will help you to halt Conservative propaganda and maybe increase your notoriety amongst the populace. Or else you can kidnap these famous conservatives and use them to spread Liberal ideas.

I hope you guys will be interested in this idea :)
