Proposal: Rockets yet again

Times out, fails 3-11.—Shadowclaw

Adminned at 18 Mar 2006 09:52:24 UTC

I reduced the latency time by 4 days.

Add a new item to the list in the rule entitled “Movement” which reads as follows:

All Gostaks have Dosh-powered Rockets.  If e has not done so in the last three days, each Gostak may destroy any amount of eir Distimmed Dosh between 1 and the amount of Distimmed Dosh e has (inclusive).  E then moves up DICEX Floors, where X is the square root of twice the amount of Dosh E destroyed, rounding down.  If this would put em on the 13th Floor or above the 1st Floor, or if e is in Hell, the Rocket malfunctions and e does not move.

This is necessery under certain rare circumstances, but was not part of the original bill.
If more than half of all comments containing counted votes also contain the text “Patch the hole”, add this text to the paragraph which was just added to the ruleset: “If e is in the Lobby and e is Depressed, e may change eir mood to Unhappy when e leaves the Lobby.”

If the Proposal titled “prop. 3” failed, add the following text to the end of the rule entitled “Distimming”:

Any Gostak who has at least one Distimmed Dosh may give one of eir Distimmed Dosh to another Gostak at any time.

I, for one, want to ‘Patch the hole’.

against It’s gotten to the point where it feels like any of Bucky’s proposals is bound to contain a boring scam, I’m afraid.

against If “prop.3” fails, but you still want to be able to give away DD, try making a proposal which makes ONLY THAT CHANGE.

Bucky:

Not at all.  I feel that giving of dosh is necessery for practical rocket use.

I’ll probably vote for, but I don’t understand the hole that is being patched. Shouldn’t the patch text go into the Mood rule?

Bucky:

The hole is that if you are Depressed in the lobby and use a rocket, you’ll descend a floor immediately afterwards.

Hix:

that’s not a hole, that’s just what should happen when you’re depressed.

“If this would put em on the 13th Floor or above the 1st Floor, or if e is in Hell, the Rocket malfunctions and e does not move.”

So you will be able to move to the first floor with the rocket. That’s bad.

i would vote for this if you could only make it up to around the 5th floor… somewehre lower than the 1st at least

I just saw a problem. Is the amount of movement according to how much Dosh is destroyed that one time, or how much Dosh that Gostak has destroyed cumulatively, ever. That will need some patching more urgently than the Mood thing.

Bucky:

Pretty clearly at one time.

Besides simply not liking the rockets idea, I don’t think any Gostak should be able to bypass the Shiny Demons on the 3rd floor.

against. What the building really needs is some modern architecture.

Bucky:

03-16-2006 23:50:54 UTC

Then propose a better use for Dosh.
