Proposal: Construction Reform

5-1. Reached Quorum.—Chronos

Adminned at 20 Sep 2005 18:09:34 UTC

Rewrite the Construction rule, except the list of Buildings, so it reads:

Countries may start a Construction at any time. Each Construction takes a certain integer amount of Periods to be completed, as well as a certain cost per period. A Construction may also require a certain cost so it can be started. All these amounts may be different for Countries of different Races.

A Country may announce the starting of a Construction on the [[World]] page by adding “Constructing: (name of Construction), (amount of periods left) periods left” to the World wiki page, under Constructions, and paying the initial cost, if any.

ACountry may not construct more than two Constructions at a given time, and e may not construct two in the same Territory at a given time.

Often, a Country may pay the cost listed to advance a constructing Construction one Period. Whenever a Country advances a Period in a Construction, e must subtract 1 from the amount of Periods listed on the World page for that Construction. When that amount of Periods has reached zero, the Building is considered completed and Operating, and its listing in the World page shall be replaced by “* Operating: (name of building)”.

Constructions have types (listed inside parenthesis beside their name).

Whenever a Construction whose type is Machinery is completed, its controller shall name it by changinf its description in the World page to “(given name) - (name of machinery as per this rule”

The following Constructions are available for construction:


Change the names Farm and Oil Well in the Construction rule to Farm (Building) and Oil Well (Building), respectively.


Change the cost of a Farm (Building), so it reads:

* Average guys:
** Initial cost: None
** Cost per Period: 12 meta
** Number of Periods: 6 Periods
* Robots:
** Initial cost: 15 Metal.
** Cost per Period: 12 metal
** Number of Periods: 4 Periods


Change the cost of an Oil Well (Building), so it reads:

* Average guys:
** Initial cost: 15 Metal.
** Cost per Period: 12 metal
** Number of Periods: 4 Periods
* Robots:
** Initial cost: None
** Cost per Period: 12 metal
** Number of Periods: 6 Periods


This allows for SmithPurplebeard‘s Machinery and changes some its and bits that were confuse in the original lettering.

You missed a ‘building’ in the second last paragraph.  I’m voting against on the basis that this seems unneccessary for now.  Plus we’ve had enough territory created. against
