Proposal: If You Market

Times out and passes 3-0. Enacted by Brendan.

Add a rule called “Licensing” as follows:

A Zone may be themed with an IP License. If a Zone an Imagineer operates has no IP License, at any time, they may create a new IP License by paying its Fee, choosing two market segments, giving it a name, and updating the description of the Zone to include it. (An IP License is not a Building, and its name has no effect on the gamestate or Ruleset.)

The Fee for an IP License starts at 0 and is calculated based on its market segments. For each Child or Senior market segment an IP License includes, add 1000 currency to its Fee. For each Teen or Adult market segment an IP License includes, add 2000 currency to its Fee. An IP License may include duplicate market segments; each instance of a given market segment in an IP License counts toward the limit of two.

At any time, an Imagineer may exercise an IP License by paying 1 SMILE and adding Visitors matching the market segments from that IP License to the current Business Day. For example, an Imagineer could exercise an IP License with market segments of “cc,” spending one SMILE to add two Child Visitors to the current Business Day; exercising an IP License with market segments of “cA” would instead add one Child and one Adult to that Business Day.

If a Zone has an existing IP License, at any time, the Imagineer operating that Zone may pay its Fee again to remove it. After removing an IP License, the Imagineer may not create a new IP License until the Boss has started a new Business Day after the Imagineer removed that IP License.

Change the sentence in the rule “Visitors” that begins “On any given Business Day, up to X Visitors may pass through Nomicland” to read:

On any given Business Day, up to X Visitors may pass through Nomicland, where X is twice the number of Imagineers. If X or more Visitors are already queued for the current Business Day, no Imagineer can add more Visitors until a new Business Day begins.

Reword the rule “Smiles” to read as follows:

Each Imagineer has a integer number of Sunny Memories Instilled in the Lives of Everyday Society or SMILES (or just “Smiles”), tracked the GNDT in a column called Smiles which defaults to 10.

Set the Smiles of each Imagineer to 10.

note: So there is no rules saying I can’t add visitors to visitor list so that the total visitors exceed X? Do I then process the full list, or just the first X? Also how do we remember what X is for each business day?
