Back to: Radioactive Tide II (Map Game)

  1. BE PLAUSIBLE! But remember, plausibility does not have to impede fun.
  2. One day in real life is one year in Radioactive Tide.
  3. Keep in mind the effects of conquest, realistically portray assimilation.
  4. Please make it painfully obvious what moves you are doing.
  5. You should do an action every year.
  6. If no actions for ten years (unless reason given, e.g. holiday) then the nation is open for takeover.
  7. If no actions for 30 years (no possible reason you could miss a month really but surprise me) then the nation becomes a grey nation.
  8. A new map is made every five years, and complaints can be made on the talk page!
  9. Each player should be specific about expansion or post maps onto the map makers talk page or the map game talk page.
  10. There will be various algorithms, and players will have to abide by them.
  11. Your economy will need to be tended to.
  12. Internal politics ARE important.
  13. Technology can be player developed or randomly re-discovered (done by mods), there will be a list of technology discovered and undiscovered.
  14. Kunarian will always reserves the right to annoyingly stop you from developing Nukes, Space Flight and Alien Space Batteries aka if he feels that you have not RPed it to the point were such technologies are likely to come about then he can stop you from developing them.
  15. Read the lore!
  16. This game will stop in year 715.


Starting a Nation

You may wish to start a nation. If so then it will start off small, 150px maximum and they have to all be touching in a central mass, they can also be smaller. You must also come up with an explanation of its appearance. Providing a map of the place you want would be good too.

You can also RP new nations starting too (within plausibility), around your lands or if you have the resources overseas, this will require your nation to help set them up of course. These nations could be used to resist your opponents or give you an ally.

Mods can also create neutral nations.

Remember this is to increase the development of the game and make it more interesting.

Turns

To work out how many turns you can have simply check your nation against this:

  • Nation (standard for all) : 1 turn

Technologies

When a nation discovers a technology it may exclusively use it for 10 years, after that it may spread around the world in a plausible manner from it's point of discovery, after 50 years all nations may use it even if it is slightly implausible that they would. A technology can be a theory or a more practical device that a nation can use to it's advantage in whatever it wishes, each technology when discovered will start out as a crude version of itself and will mature fully after 100 years to resemble it's modern counterpart, any that start off as experiments must take at least 10 years of experimentation before being used, any that start off as scavenged must take at least 25 years of scavenging before own versions can be made.
