[Cleanup] Order of Operations

Add a “Battle Status” column to the GNDT, with each Ape’s Battle Status starting as “No,” as per the approved proposal “War for the Plane of the Apes.”

Fix the nested lists in the New Generation Event step beginning with “Take the absolute difference” by replacing that step with:

# If the Ape Strength is greater than the Neanderthal Strength:
1. Decrease the LA of the Neanderthals by the absolute difference between the Ape and Neanderthal Strengths
2. Increase the Legacy of each Fighting Ape by one
3. Increase the Food of the Fighting Ape whose genes contributed the most to the Ape Strength by an amount equal to the absolute difference between the Ape and Neanderthal Strengths. In case of a tie for greatest Strength contribution, distribute the increase in Food as evenly as possible among the tying Apes in question and ignore the remainder.
If the Neanderthal Strength is greater than the Ape Strength:
1. Set the food of each Fighting Ape to zero.
2. Increase the Legacy of the Neanderthals by 1.
If the Neanderthal Strength is equal to the Ape Strength, no changes are made.

 

As the Ruleset order is currently laid out, the conditions for Ape defeat and tie with the Neanderthals only trigger in the event of Ape victory, which is contradictory.

This isn’t in the proposal category, so doesn’t count as a proposal.

Should probably add hashes to the second and third “If…” lines here, to give it a clear structure. As written (and as the previous proposal was written), I don’t think there’s any clean way to express new unnumbered lines in wiki markup.
