Proposal: Needs Less Halting Problem

Times out 2-2 and fails -SingularByte

Enact the proposal ‘Needs More Turing Completeness’, changing the Reaction it adds to read:

...then [enable/disable/toggle] the Triggers at the following positions in the list: X. If the Script has been run less than thrice this turn, run it again after this Reaction is Resolved without incrementing the turn number of the Bout”, where X is a set of integers denoting valid positions in the list of Triggers

Let’s try this again!

Half the challenge is figuring out how to efficiently make orders with only two triggers per line. I’d worry that this would completely overhaul what kind of scripts would be standard, in a way that massively benefits people with much more time on their hands to work it all out.

I might be more comfortable if it was gated behind a system so that there’s a cost to getting better scripts.
