Proposal: A more interesting city

Times out 11-1 -Darth

Adminned at 25 Sep 2009 14:57:52 UTC

Repeal rule “2.16 City”

Create a new rule “London Underground”:

There exists a wiki page called “London Underground” which at all times contains the image located at this URL: http://www.tourstolondon.co.uk/london-underground-map.gif
This image is known as the London Underground Map (or simply the Map) and specifies a list of Stations.

All Stations belong to a line as shown in the Map (all stations that share a colour are part of the same line, the lower right of the image contains a list of the lines, referenced by name and colour).

A Station may be a Interchange Station if its so marked in the Map. Interchange Stations are part of more than one line, as indicated by the lines they intersect in the Map.

Each Survivor has a Station, tracked by the GNDT, which must match the name of a Station in the Map, and is “Westminster” for new Survivors.

Set the Station of all non-Infected Survivors to “Westminster”. Set the Station of all Infected Survivors to “Wembley Park”.

Create a new sub-rule “Movement” under rule “London Underground”:

As a daily action, a Survivor may change their Station to any other Station that is part of the same line as their current Station. If their current Station is an Interchange Station, they may change their Station to a Station on any of the lines of which that Interchange Station is a part of.

I’ll fix the Inventory if this one passes (and will probably completely change the system for items and for foraging if this works)

only because the London map is too large and complex.  For a playable game, you need a smaller set of valid locations.

I suggest something more like:

or
http://www.wmata.com/rail/maps/map.cfm
or
http://metro.net/riding_metro/maps/images/rail_map.pdf

Aah yes, the Washington Railroad. First Dynasties of ais523 and yuri_dragon_17, respectively.

And no-one here knows what the hell I’m talking about, do they?

CoV, but with the understanding that if this passes, I will amend to replace the map with the Washington DC metro map, which seems to me to be a much more reasonably small one.
