Proposal: The mountain

Passes at 11-0. -Purplebeard

Revert any changes to this page made after this proposal was posted.

Add a new rule to the ruleset, named “The Settlement”:

The map of the Settlement is located here. Each Location is Designated by a number followed by a letter, and Represented by one ASCII character. The legend below the map denotes what each ASCII character represents. Locations that are denoted as empty in the legend are Empty. Locations that are denoted as occupied in the legend are Occupied.

Each Colonist has a Location that is tracked in the GNDT and corresponds to a location on the Settlement Map. New Colonists start at 13a if it is empty, otherwise they start in the empty location closest to 13a.

Create a Location column in the GNDT and set each Colonist’s location to 13a.

for Although tracking player position in the GNDT seems potentially confusing; probably better to either track it on the map, or not at all.

Incidentally, I don’t suppose you have the “Daylight Savings” setting checked in the “Localization Settings” section of your Personal Settings, Purplebeard? Your posts seem to be an hour out (and the Daylight Savings setting doesn’t really seem to work as it’s supposed to).

Although “the empty location closest to 13a” is ambiguous, and simultaneously setting every Colonist to the same location doesn’t really help.

There’s no reason two Colonists can’t occupy the same Location.

And yes, I had that setting checked. I unchecked it now, we’ll see if that fixes the problem.

If two colonists can occupy the same Location this: “otherwise they start in the empty location closest to 13a.” isn’t necessary at all, because they could just start at 13a.

Otherwise, totally for

[SeerPenguin] 13a could have turned into a tree or something, later in the game.

[Kevan] True, then at the very least a clarification that Colonists can occupy the same location (If it may be), as it is not defined as such.
