Sorry I have not been active in the last few months, had an issue with a family member's health and have since been absent and have not found the motivation to get back into NS. Happy to say I will be checking it more actively from now on though, and am working on a lot more writing-centric projects and will be happy to take a break from those and work on NS. No promises for when things will be coming out but I am working on some posts and factbooks.
Oya! What’s shaking, peeps? Hoping each of you are all doing well.
Need to apologize myself for my silence. I’ve been in the midst of managing a big project at work for an insane client for months now. On top of that, I’m just finishing up a huge house move to Philadelphia. (Which nearly killed me, literally. Bumped my skull hard. It still hurts.) Woopie!
So, dear leaders,
It is true that each of our great civilizations have many, many pressing domestic (RL) concerns to contend with. Athretvari is by no means any different, as evidenced above. However, the Athretvarian government will try to devote more energies to the preservation, maintanence, and development of our tough, little Enkonian community. We have been through quite a bit and still persevere.
Our government will concentrate less on “grand schemes” and more on the development of governement-to-government and people-to-people relations with each of your esteemed civilizations.
We hope that together we can slowly reignite (at a pace best suited to our RL lives) interaction between us, and then work together to expand our community as appropriate.
We again send our best wishes to you all!
"People pizza" is not Italian style unless it's made in a Mafia-owned joint. In which case, it may in fact be "people pizza." :)
(Yeah, I think they mean New York style = Italian thin-crust like you find throughout NY.)
Big oof, 5 out of the 9 nations in my factbook have gone silent. sad times
It happens. The game may pick up in the summer.
Yea, sad times. Though it brings a good story for Nedea to rp if he wants.
Lifes just really picked up. Sara is off doing all sorts of great campaign work for some of the local politicians and Moar is busy with some of his film projects.
I know things look bleak out there, NS just isnt what it used to be. I haven't been the best either about posting here but I will guarantee i will keep this place open and online. With my new work ive been finding myself with some idle time so I think from now on I'm going to write RP ideas on paper and flesh them out abit before trying to post them here. I always find myself losing motivation and creativity when I write in front of a screen. I think if I get more of the idea on paper first it will be easier.
And dont forget, you're here forever. Or at least I am...
I've been on here long enough to get around here to get 25 billion in population.i have no reason to leave the game now unless something serious happens.
I kinda wish the issues dealing with annexation gives you a extra bonus in population growth the next round of population growth.
Agreed. There are a number of issues that should decrease or at least stall population growth too.
Or have some way to show puppetry of other NS Nations. I know I used to be a knock off USSR during Enkon and the last days of ncon prime. Your a federation of states and I ruled Silva1 as confederation in which my Dual monarchy of 46566-Duncan Grey had effective majority of states in the confederation on my side.
A “puppet union” is something I’m very surprised that at least some 3rd-party coder hasnt developed yet. I can cobbl together a google spreadsheet that reads NS data from a bunch of puppets and sum it all up in a type of “Empire” tab, but it’s a super clunky way of doing it when so many other more elegant solutions are possible.
The United Technocratic Realms was a great & mighty beast, wasn’t it? :)
All it would do is carry over NS stats of involved Nations. Maybe have different selections of unified government like Dual monarchy, Confederation or federation. Maybe economic growth ones to like Custom Union. Though I think the reason it's not brought in is do to RP Nations don't use NS stats.
It's the same reason our mining sector doesn't subdivide into what's actually being mined.
I'm surprised I'm in sixth place. RP wise you can claim to have the second best army.
