Title: Succession Game Joining Thread! LETS DO THIS! (Turn In Progress!)
Post by: Untrustedlife on June 14, 2014, 02:48:26 AM
Alrighty Then guys, we will do a succession game, ill go first Naturally, we will be playing on randy random (unless you guys would rather play on Cassandra or Cleopatra)
(added a poll)



Rules:


Ask to join in THIS thread! and I will add you to the list.

(Remember some rim-lore before making your story, No FTL Travel, The gulf Between Stars, and No aliens)

Our World Will be a Large 325x325

We will be playing on vanilla rimworld (I want to stay with vanilla for story reasons,) (This will be the first true succession game that i know of for rimworld)

(We will heavily RP our "Leaders" and each reign lasts 15 days)
Players Must Submit Their savefile in a zip/rar file on their post, and are recommended/encouraged, to  tell  of their reign in a creative STORY (first person) format.
 
You must explain how your leader ended up here (you don't have to try too hard though (I encourage it however)), and how you left after your fifteen days (Or go ahead and rename one of the unimportant colonists with your name)

(You can do this by going into the save file and editing your colonist)

(Feel free to RP your leader as crazily as you like)
(as long as you dont TRY to kill everyone.)

You want a dictatorship based on fear and cannibalism,  GO AHEAD!

seeing as i tried in the last thread i would love to join! I'm not 100% sure how fast i could get a round done, it could take me a day or three, as i am on a summer exchange program in Japan (which means my summer vacation suddenly has school in it again) ...

P.S.
Thanks for starting this up again!

I would love to be in on this, but I don't have much spare time and I'd hold things up. I'm definitely going to be watching that thread, though!

Also, hi forum!  I've been lurking the forum since a couple days before Alpha 3, and this thread finally made me register an account. :)

Post by: Kubouch on June 15, 2014, 09:32:28 AM
I'm definitely in :-)! I have about two weeks until I start to travel around so if it starts soon enough I'm in.

As for storyteller I'd love RR, but since it's probably a bit broken in alpha 4 I'd stick with CC. TC might be a bit much for the first run.

Post by: minami26 on June 15, 2014, 09:36:25 AM
me want in.

also, can you refresh me on what to do in a succession game again?

what I understood is that.
I get a colonist on my turn by renaming, then share the story of how the dude got here.

Explain me this:
when its my turn...
I build somewhere on the map where it isnt near the last player's area?
Then I explain every step I take for 10 days?
Am I right?

also RR for the win!

Added you guys to the list :) (When shall we start? (I already generated a world/customized my colonist))

Question answers:

In a succession game, You share the story as to how you got there, then you act as a ruler of the colony ( You expand on things players have already built/ do your own thing, it is YOUR colony during your turn, you can even take things down other players have made if you wish... (Unless you guys don't want that?)

And yes explain everything you do for the 10 days (In a story style hopefully)

If this is going to be slow paced I might be able to jump in after all. I usually only can play one or two days per week.  I'd love to be a part of this if I don't hold it up too badly.

im sorry, it seems whenever i want to do something like this life hits me like a brick.....

I guess we can switch to a5, ill have to just just start up on randy random and be like "Story time", My birthday is tomorrow so dont expect me on then, but this weekend I have work off (I ended up having lots of work the past couple weeks) :) so I can do it. We will still do it. Just make sure to keep up on this thread so we can set off when Im done with my turn. Again, sorry i wish i could devote my entirety of time to making the first (hopefully of many) succession game of rimworld, but its difficult.

I'm going to be house sitting for a week starting this weekend, then I'm off on vacation for 2 weeks. I won't be able to take a turn until early August, so put me later in the rotation.

Headshotkill [AKA. Tom (name I would use ingame)] reporting for duty!

Some questions:

-How long does a turn last, do we have 1 week or 1 day?

-Will we be allowed to start construction of the spaceship?


Oh yeah, we should call the colony 'Boatmurdered 2.0'.
Title: Re: Succession Game Joining Thread! LETS DO THIS!
Post by: milon on July 11, 2014, 01:24:43 PM
@Headshotkill,
Each turn is 10 in-game days (see 1st post).  Good question about the spaceship.  I would assume yes, but I'll defer to Untrustedlife.

Oh yeah, we should call the colony 'Boatmurdered 2.0'.
Don't forget about Bronzemurder (http://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/v0.31:Stories/Bronzemurder)!

Post by: theapolaustic1 on July 11, 2014, 10:28:14 PM
Oh man this sounds so cool, I'd love to hop in on it. My computer's dead right now (though I have access to a rimworld-playable one in the meantime, so I can still play), but it will be fixed on the 15th or so. I'm up for being wherever in rotation fits, no need for delay (noticed a lot of people saying they need to be put later down in the schedule).

If it works, throw me in somewhere between the 20th and 26th, possibly. Gf's coming up for a visit and I've been ranting about this game constantly to her. Would definitely be a fun way of showing her what the game is like!

Also since we're talking about colony names: That can be edited the same as colonist names in the save file, right? We could just make it an option to rename the colony when we take over, should our leader so desire.

(Also, now that A5 changed how the dates display, maybe change the reign to 15 days, so that it's one month per leader? Or is that too long?)
Title: Re: Succession Game Joining Thread! LETS DO THIS!
Post by: Untrustedlife on July 13, 2014, 04:48:43 PM
I think we will stick with 10 days, but there is plenty of things to do in game now... what do you guys think?

Milon Has been move to the end of the rotation as he asked

Telkir  has been added

HeadshotKill has been added

Theapolaustic has been added

I see no problem with making the space ship guys You can only evacuate so many colonists anyway. Try not to end it too early though :)

I expect even if we actively try it will take a few rotations anyway
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
I Have free time tomorrow, Expect at least one update tomorrow :)
Title: Re: Succession Game Joining Thread! LETS DO THIS!
Post by: theapolaustic1 on July 13, 2014, 06:09:12 PM
Greatly appreciate the update, was starting to worry if you had disappeared.

Personally I like the idea of fifteen days from a story perspective. It's a bit of an odd thing to consider someone running a place for a bit over a week before stepping down without some abstraction to it, but a monthly "leader" rotation makes a bit more sense (even if in reality those months are only 15 days long, it's a bit less abstract sounding, if you understand what I mean?) for a small group of people.

Regarding the spaceship: It might be a bit of fun if we each gave a self-assigned "priority" before we took charge (think "campaign promises"). So one person may focus entirely on the ship, then it just languishes in the hanger half-built for two terms until someone else remembers it.

Even if that's not what everyone else likes, I may just do something like that as my fluff for how my leader came to be in charge :P

(Also I'm sorry to be a pedant about this but it bugs me a bit: The "1" in my name isn't a "this username was taken" sort of 1, it's as in the pronoun "one". Xbox live had a character limit just short of what I needed for the full name and I still use the same version elsewhere :P)
Title: Re: Succession Game Joining Thread! LETS DO THIS!
Post by: Untrustedlife on July 15, 2014, 09:15:01 PM
Alright we are doing 15 days, since nobody else said anything. I hope they havent lost hope.

Update #1

Urist's Log
(http://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=4062.0;attach=3049)
January 1st (Year 1 of the Colony)

So I came on this space-liner to get away from things, I had just been released from prison, I needed a break, thought the space-liner would be a nice relaxing vacation for me, Oh how wrong I was. 

You see, I was drafted a few years back to help establish a colony on a moon, It took a few years, But we did it.It wasn't easy, and it took a toll on my psyche..... It was tough living in holes in the ground for weeks on end, I got a little stir crazy, later the doctor on the colony diagnosed it as  "Cabin Fever" even though it wasn't a cabin, or a fever for that mater.

I killed some people. 3 of them.. they lived in that hole in the ground with me and the rest of the colony.. but it was MY hole in the ground... they paid for it. Of course, the administrator of the colony didnt take too kindly to that.. probably because one of the people who lived in that hole with me was his wife...

Anyway I was eventually released...only 4 years in prison.. they let me out on "good behavior", yea I know only 4 years for 3 murders.. I was really good and I would always tell them the sob-story about how I had a coma when I was younger they must have felt sorry for me......and the empire doesn't care much about their colonists....apparently.

Anyway, after i was released I decided that i needed to get away from things.. a space-liner was perfect.

Then it happened a few weeks in,  I was hanging out in my quarters, and I heard the alarms.. the alarms were very  loud..

I could hear people screaming, and had no idea what was happening. I left my quarters to find that the place was pitch black.

I ran for the longsleep pods...as fast as I could.

Metal ripping all around me.. I got in one of them.. someone else as trying to get in it, but I hit them and threw them out of it.. and the port closed. I could feel the pod being shot out of the liner. And then silence. The AI graciously notified me that it would put me in cryostasis until it found a good place to land. I had no time to respond.  Then blackness.

And then I woke up. I have no idea how long its been.

Have a look in one of your save files.  I think the colonist names are there in plain text and can be edited at will.  I'd give you a better answer, but I'm at work right now.

Um...

*coughs politely*

So UntrustedLife doesn't seem to have signed into the forums since the 19th. If he doesn't chime in by the end of the month or so, would everyone be cool with starting fresh on this whole thing with a new thread?

Love the idea of this, but it's been ten days since he said he'd have the next update, and half a month since he put the last one up.

Not trying to step on toes here, but it's looking like UL is too busy with IRL concerns to run this. I'd be perfectly okay with taking over if nobody'd be upset by the transition.

*Raises hand*

If there is room, I am up for a game of this also. So the jist of the team playthrough is to send save files, take screen shots and write some sweet story to go along with it?

I am so in if you would not mind me taking a turn  :D

I just really wished we could rename the colonists so we could "rim" ourselves into the game kind of like getting Dwarfed into Dwarf fortress who by the way have some of the best random stories I have ever read.

Post by: theapolaustic1 on July 31, 2014, 05:53:08 PM
Alright, assuming that UL doesn't reply, I'll post up a new topic tomorrow to get the ball rolling again.

I'm thinking Gdocs spreadsheet for a set "calendar" of sorts, that way it'll be easier to figure out who's going when and we'll have relatively firm start/stop dates for things (obviously not planning to be a nazi about it, but so that people have a rough idea when to check the thread for their turns and whatnot)? Assuming that's fine with everyone.

I just really wished we could rename the colonists so we could "rim" ourselves into the game kind of like getting Dwarfed into Dwarf fortress who by the way have some of the best random stories I have ever read.

I'm pretty sure the .rim savefiles are just text internally, it should be possible to do.
