misteddawn said:My thoughts on Nunez's well thought out ideas from FFF:
- intial description of a federation: I like that it is defined as only CW's join, keeps things simpler with management as too many single colonies could clog things up. Having a CW(s) for new players joining would help with keeping things clean.
- The benefits listed would work, especially as it is an expanded idea of a CW and what you can do there.
- the solutions: I like the idea of 3 as soon it will be required anyway to have a login with apeapps so expanding its use, especially for federations could be used. I think most functions should only be in-game but things like voting should be done thru the website. Requests to join could be both in-game and thru the website but only if Bast is able to make them fully sync so there isn't unnecessary duplication or glitches due to differing decisions by more than one officer. Another thing the website could be used for is conversations between members and/or the ones in charge.
I would suggest having two buildings for federations for government functions. A building that is for the ruling CW(s) and a building for member CW's much like we have a building for independent colonies and one for dependent ones.
Embassies could be used for both CW's and federations as the function would essentially be the same just at different levels so little coding may need to be done to allow them to work in either case.
I think voting should be in game it could be done via the special building suggested by nunez.
