Help / Bugs / Re: Land Grab Calculation
« on: January 18, 2021, 04:08:16 PM »
Hm. 
So Drive gives a 1.1x modifier

The land loss calc is:
$loss = mt_rand(1, ceil(($enemy[$building_type] * 0.07 + 2) * $modifier));   

So if the enemy had 10,000 acres all in huts an attack has a chance to take between 1 and 772 acres.  The Drive modifier is applied to the max possible, not the amount taken (...I'd make an argument for it being applied after the calc, but I didn't write it). 
Basically the same as QMT, RNJesus was not on your side.

Lottery is a bit weird. 
Code: [Select]
            print "Lottery Prize...";
            if (mt_rand(0, 100) < 75) {
                $lotterynum = sqleval("SELECT ticket FROM $lotterydb WHERE contest = 0 ORDER BY RAND() LIMIT 1;");
            } else {
                $lotterynum = mt_rand(1, 3 * sqleval("SELECT num FROM $playerdb ORDER BY num DESC LIMIT 1;"));
            }
75% chance that it randomly chooses one of the purchased tickets
25% chance that it randomly chooses a number, which may not exist

This is true.   

The one time I took emp on Reg (held #1 for 10 days iirc) was with Nero - who's majority networth (86.08%) was comprised of food (7.6 bil)   
I allied basically everyone and sent out so many bribes aid packets, so many. 

That was 16 years ago........, not too long after the collapse of the Rome-themed coordinated clan.  Fun round, think that was about the time we had around 200 active players;  was only a year from this post, see if I can find some screenshots...

Anyways, yep. 
Plus, you know, the game is more fun when you interact with other players

Reg Discussion / Re: Cluny's hut
« on: December 11, 2020, 08:36:23 AM »
Cluny's is proportional to your networth - 
Max loan is your networth * 5   
Max stored is: 1800000 * networth * (1 + # of markets / land) / (sqrt(500000000 + networth))) - 1   
.....I did not write that, heh

If you lose networth to the point you have more loaned out than the max you can't take any extra out, but your existing loan stands (and is paid off, with interest, every turn you use).   
If you lose networth to the point you have more stored than the max allowed the extra cash will be added back to your available at a rate of 3% per turn cycle.  This was added to combat market theft (buy out someone's marketed goods, then steal the cash back;  brutal for indies who were using the market without much leader defense).

Polling / Re: The Merits of Redwall
« on: September 03, 2020, 09:28:56 PM »
Now you have long time members like Shadow and Windy who have kept this game up as long as it does not inconvenience them. 
This is a fair assessment.   

Kind of a late response to this thread (personally wanted to avoid over-posting as I feel like w/ the given, sporadic activity; I didn't want to oversaturate & appear unavoidably abrasive [but that could just be the anxiety talking ಠ_ಠ])...
Buuut, thanks for that bit of insight, it really helps me get some perspective on the state of things, being some guy that's come out of the woodworks wondering:Spoiler
But I guess this brings me to my final position -if I haven't already stated it elsewhere; anybody know of some ongoing, patreon-esque platform whose proceeds go to anybody still involved in development or simply hosting a functional server?
tbh I don't think anyone is actively developing a Promi at the moment
Earth Empires is still trucking I guess;  it's along the same lines, but not really a promi (...iirc it's older than promi?)

There are some fairly mature versions of promi out there available for download, imo FAF is probably one of the more solid - https://github.com/jbarbero/frostnflame 
But QM(T) was probably the most widely used - https://sourceforge.net/projects/qmpromisance/ 

fwiw, it costs very little to host a promi with the normal <250 player count.   
Probs get by with the low tier $5/mo shared hosting plan most places offer.   
A loooong time ago when most internet sites were static iirc we did have a host get upset at us for CPU usage, but with the monsters most modern webhosts use it really shouldn't be a problem. 
's why I'm kinda surprised Disl said multiple people shut down their promis due to costs...  $60/yr + $15 or so for the domain isn't all that much.   'course, I say that while RWL mooches..   

If you wanted to launch your own go for it, I can provide some mild guidance if needed.

Hah, which ones did you get?   
There's currently four responses, it's set to pick one at random

Code: [Select]
    switch (mt_rand(1,4)) {
    case 1:
        $msg_body = "The acre is a unit of land area used in the imperial and US customary systems. It is defined as the area of 1 chain by 1 furlong (66 by 660 feet), which is exactly equal to  1 640th of a square mile, 43,560 square feet, approximately 4,047 m2, or about 40% of a hectare.  The imperial measurement system is weird.";
        break;
    case 2:
        $msg_body = "The US State of Rhode Island is approx 775,900 acres";
        break;
    case 3:
        $msg_body = "Beaches, plains, hills, mountains.  It's all the same to me!";
        break;
    case 4:
        $msg_body = "For the US in 2013, the median lot size of a new sold single-family house was 8,596 square feet, or just under 0.2 acres.  You've got $users[land] acres!";
        break;
}

I'm open to additional ideas, iirc it was Krowdon that suggested the LandFarm had a voice I just made it mildly informative.
