Thanks, Errinundera, for the telegram and the feedback. I am open to the idea of replacing CTE'd nations with unoccupied land. Water is a form of wilderness, after all, so I think it could go either way -- land OR water. I would, however, like to hear a few more opinions on this. Do you recall how others felt when you brought this up to SJ in the past?
As an alternative, I may simply have to 'compress' the timeline of the oldest parts of Forest every once in a while, as it is the area that becomes most sparse and snake-like in the long run. And it will never improve unless I do compress it. This would allow for the return of Errinundera to a more remotely landlocked piece of land as it originally was. The east tends to be a cluster of several-times-landlocked countries, unless I were to intentionally make it snake-like with lots of coast. And I would like to see a more balanced look between the oldest and newest nations. I can really compress and slide apart any particular part of the region to create that balance.
Because of how much has changed in the past year, I can only use the latest of SJ's maps as a base very loosely. It will really be more of a guide in shaping individual nations, as I feel the overall shape of the land is pretty much secondary to that. I will probably opt to create a more solid landmass to begin with, to be more in line with SJ's first map from 2012.
I think compression and some flexibility in the rules is likely to be a good think. Both make your life easier and make the map more accurate. And lack of compression makes the map very sensitive to the exact time period the first map was created which is an arbitrary point anyway.
Hey, and we are 3rd from last in the census for largest automobile industry!
Yay for public transport!
Calling all NS++ users...
Has anyone else had trouble with the NS++ browser add-on breaking significant parts of the site, or having features that don't work at all? For instance, when I have it enabled, I'm unable to post on Forest's RMB from the main page. I click "Lodge Message" and nothing happens. And many of its settings don't work.
There's an ongoing discussion here on the forum about the problems with NS++ (the last 10 pages or so really highlight them), and it sounds like it's simply outdated/not maintaned and becoming more and more obsolete.
I'm still enabling it once in a while to check on my puppets, since it's a convenient way to do that. But I notice NS++ is mentioned in Forest's WFE now, so I brought this to Ransium's attention. Since he doesn't use NS++, he suggested I post here about it.
I'm trying to gauge how widespread the problems are, in case it's a bad idea to encourage new members to use it and potentially cause them to be unable to post to the RMB.
2 issues - I can only post from forum view (a pain) and it doesn't like some browsers.
Thank you for your kind welcome, the people of Muchkarmanow are celebrating in the streets now that we have finally found a region of like-minded people. We hope to help as much as we can to make Forest an example to all other regions of how to build a future that puts people, the environment and freedom at the forefront of their concerns. We will continue to grow as a nation and participate in any way we can, thanks again.
