Re: [Contest] Who Wants to be Hades' Governor?
You will almost certainly only get the infrastructure buildings.

So, you can put news up in places, decorate things, etc.

You'll get anything a new governor would get. That should be most buildings on either Sakejima, but won't cover any shoppes on Jorvik.

You may consider access to these buildings, and the news locations within, as available resources.

I dont think the reward is meant to be abused though... (as in using shoppes to trade profit to your main account) To me it's more of a chance to roleplay, have some fun crashing blockades solo in a war frig, and think up ideas for events ;)

Re: [Contest] Who Wants to be Hades' Governor?
Aye, I could be wrong but I woudln't want to ruin the island for a good blockade when and if it does come open and we don't want it to turn into an Alpha in my opinion.

Re: [Contest] Who Wants to be Hades' Governor?
I'm sure ye can do governor types of things, some just prefer to preserve the island for the next ownership rather than turning it into a cnossos or something similar. To me, that's what island responsibility is, being prepared for growth.

Well thats why the Ringers want to see a plan. You dont really think the Ringers will give the island to a greedy PoE grubbing Pirate do you? I certainly hope not.

Then choose the correct file. Hopefully, ye saved it into the folder that says Yohoho Tools. If not, ye'll have to go search for it and move it in there.

Here.

Also, regarding the shoppes, well, you can place them, but you've got to put that in your plan. If your plan is to build a bunch of shoppes and pocket the profits, I'll be honest and say you're not likely to become governor.

There are a number of fun, innovative plans up already. I'm impressed and happy with the response.

That's not me plan. lol Ye'll see me plan when I post it. lol
Good Luck to all :)


Edit: Another question. In ye judging ye are looking for a plan that would acutally be used by a serious govenor, not like 100% taxes and a gate to hell (all that b**l s**t stuff), correct?

Re: [Contest] Who Wants to be Hades' Governor?
A new furnishing shop has been placed on Jorvik. Can we expect anymore construction prior to this event ending? The building of two furnishing shops on this island was central to my Governor's plan and so this new construction has scuppered my entry. (Three shops of that type on poor overbuilt Jorvik is one too many).

I would like to know how it was determined that Napam got ownership of that construction site. And then by my reasoning he will then own the shop as well....

My understanding is that he bought another shop, and traded it for the construction site.

Why wasn't anyone who owned a shop on the island told this then? I might have traded my Apothacary for a Furnishing shop.

I don't know. Personally, I don't blame Napalm for asking or getting it done. Hades, on the other hand, shouldn't have done this while the contest was pending, and most probably not at all without public disclosure of the opportunity to others.

If there are any other commitments to provide/swap/dust whatever buildings and whatnot that have been made (on either ocean) that the prospective governors will have to factor into their plans for the island, those should have been disclosed as soon as possible for the contestants to factor in; they absolutely should be disclosed ASAP (and the prospective candidates for affected islands, if any, possibly given more time to revise their proposals to boot). Even if there are no other pending deals, Hades should at least disclose that fact.

<sigh>.

You save the file (it will end in .xml extension) on the disk somewhere, probably under "My Documents" or "~". You name it something like "Island.xml" if it isn't already named that.

Then, you start up the scene editor, and open that file.

Re: [Contest] Who Wants to be Hades' Governor?
Ack! It seems what happened was an Oceanmaster didn't know about the contest going on and just granted what seemed to be a reasonable player request. So my fault, really, for not properly informing them.

I'm really sorry this happened. It's not really possible to turn back the clock on the shoppe switch, but I can promise nothing else will happen until after the new Governor is chosen.

So can I change a shop on Alpha for a Furnishing Shop then? How about the same for Epsilion?
