Twice a day, NationStates updates, and delegates change all over the world. Some warriors appear only at the height of the battle. Like the tide, the SPSF Tidal Force flow to their target all through the day.
If you can’t or don’t want to update (the times - 12 AM and 12 PM EST - can be very inconvenient!), don’t have time to learn the ins and outs of military gameplay, but still want to contribute to the South Pacific, then the Tidal Force is for you.
What does the SPSF Tidal Force do?
Washes away traces of raiders from native regions
Supports SPSF Update Force missions
Supports our allies when in need
You need only three things to sign up to the Tidal Force:
An email address, so you can join the World Assembly.
A nation in TSP. This is your main nation, and we will send orders to it.
A second nation, known as a ‘puppet’. If you don’t already have one, click here to make one. This nation is the one you will use to participate on missions. All actions such as moving to other regions, endorsing nations, etc. in military operations will be performed using this nation. (You don't want the enemy to know your true identity, after all.)
Finally, to apply, follow these steps:
If your main nation is admitted to the World Assembly, resign now.
Log in to your puppet nation, or create it if you have not done so already.
Go to the Settings page.
Add your email address into the E-mail box near the bottom of the Settings page (make sure this is the same e-mail address as on your main nation if you already have one).
Pick out one of our SPSF Flags from the folder and upload it as your puppet nation's flag!
Apply to join the World Assembly with your puppet nation.
Check your e-mail, and confirm your admittance into the World Assembly (applications should arrive in around a minute or less).
Join our Discord for further instructions and training
Hello. I would like to join the SPSF Tidal Force.
Whenever we have a mission, it will be made known to you via discord, this dispatch, and a post tagging your nation on the Regional Message Board. If there are no current orders, you may return to the region and endorse the Delegate and all members of the CRS. In general you can expect to be on missions most of the time - we aim for at least one new mission every day.
When you're given a mission, these are things you might be asked to do:
Move to a region - you'll be given a region link. Click on it and look for the "Move to this region" button.
Endorse a nation - scroll to the bottom of the nation page and click the endorse button. You can only do this if both nations are in the region.
Cross-endorse on a nation - click the endorse button. Check the list of other nations who have endorsed that nation, and endorse them too.
Cross-endorse in the region - look for other SPSF nations in the region and endorse them all. You should be able to recognise them by their SPSF flags.
If you become delegate, we expect you to treat the region with care and don't do anything you weren't told to! You might be asked to do these things:
Detag the region - this washes away the advertisements raiders have left on a region. We have a guide to this here:Read dispatchDetag Guide
Dismiss any raider regional officers.
Withdraw or close the embassy with the raider region.
If the raiders withdrew any of the region’s previous embassies, cancel the withdrawal.
Remove the ‘invader’ tag, if it has been added.
If raiders suppressed any messages on the RMB, unsuppress them. If they made any posts on the RMB, suppress them.
Find the most recent flag (see below) that isn’t a raider flag, and replace the raider flag with it. Sometimes the only images on the archive are raider flags. Check with an officer if you aren’t sure if something is a raider flag or not. Alternatively, simply abolish the flag.
Find the most recent WFE (see below) that isn’t advertising a raider region, and replace the raider WFE with it. It’s usually very easy to tell what’s a raider WFE and what isn’t. However, sometimes no results will come up for the region you are detagging. You can replace the raider WFE with something simple like “Welcome to [region name].” Please check the resources given first, and only create your own WFE as a last resort.
WFE index - This nearly always has the original WFE, but only began tracking regions in 2018 so if the region you're detagging was made before then and the index does not have a non-raider WFE, you may want to try the link below.
Old WFE index - This is a good resource if the above doesn't work. This was the original index and goes back a very long time, but was no longer updated after 2018. Good for finding very old WFEs.
Eyebeast - For more recent raids/regions, the Eyebeast, designed by fellow defender Refuge Isle contains updated flag and WFE information. To access a regions information, type "/regions/" in the URL bar and then the name of the region after that.
Flag index - same as above.
Google Cache - try searching for "site:region=[insert region here]"
Tag the region - this claims a region for the SPSF. An officer will let you know what to do.
Ban and eject a nation - go to the nation's page, scroll down to the bottom and click "Ban and eject". You may not have enough influence to ban the nation yet - don't worry, just wait another day for your influence to grow.
