Proposal: New Growth

(Amended by the enactment of Professor Dung Beetle, by Kevan.)

Timed out and passed, 7-0. Josh

Adminned at 17 Sep 2020 08:37:22 UTC

Rename the rule “Growth” to “Island Characteristics”. Move the paragraph that starts “All Islands have a score for Land” or “All Islands have a topology” to a subrule to that rule, called Topology. Move the sentence “Each Island has an Altitude statistic” to the end of the rule called Topology. Make the rule “Tectonics” a subrule of the rule “Island Characteristics”.  Move the sentence that starts “All Islands have a score for Foliage” to a new subrule under the rule “Island Characteristics”, called “Flora”.

Add a new rule as a subrule to the rule Island Characteristics, called “Fauna”, with the following text:

DELAY: All Islands have a score for Animal Biomass, which is a non-negative integer that is tracked on the Great Sea page of the wiki and defaults to 0.

If Proposal: Bird’s Eye View was not enacted, add “DELAY: If an Island’s Animal Biomass has a higher value than that Island’s Foliage, then, as a Mandatory Action, that island must reduce its Foliage by the difference between the two, to a minimum of zero, with any excess reduction being taken from that Island’s Animal Biomass score instead.”

If Proposal: Bird’s Eye View was enacted, add the following to the list of Mandatory Actions: “* DELAY: Consume: Check the difference between their Animal Biomass and Foliage scores. If the former is greater than the latter, reduce its Foliage by the difference between the two, to a minimum of zero, with any excess reduction being taken from that Island’s Animal Biomass score instead.”

imperial Not the shape of animals I was going for, but it should work.

the rule movements are nice.

This repeats the problem of putting a stat behind a DELAY wall (Biomass will not exist at all until the next Round) and then having a Mandatory Action that requires players to measure that stat.

Uh, I guess this is up to the enacting admin’s whim, but there is no longer a list of Mandatory Actions, nor any use of the word Mandatory in the Ruleset.

Oh for hecks sake.

I guess that they are still distinctly small-m mandatory, at least…
