How much is too much?: 3/17/2017 01:07:34

I need help. (I used the API to make this.)

But in all seriousness, are there any rules saying players aren't supposed to pull this kind of stuff? I feel bad for adding this map as "Pending Public," as I did not really create the map. (Or did I?) What should I do with the map?

I probably will not do something like this again. I certainly have no intention of spamming 3.2K maps all over WarLight.

Anyway, thanks for taking your time to read this.

Oh no what have I done!

Edit: I could literally create all 50 states in a matter of a few hours, probably less. Naming is the only problem; which would take much longer.

i dont like the fact that there are no multiple-territory bonuses or superbonuses.

lol. playing on that map with local deployment would be a bitch

That's usually the deal when playing diplo maps, I guess.

Ouch! That hurts just to think about.

there's no rules against map spam, so afaik nothing is "too much" as long as it fits the guidelines. There are several maps here that are just copies of each other.

the real question is...can you hook us all up with the script you made ;) So we can all make Bubble Wrap maps!

(This is also the answer to "How much is too much?")

Heheh, I don't even trust myself with all that power. Maybe I'll find some medium ground I can cross.

I don´t think 8 to 12 variations of a kind would hurt someone. But if they all are 1-bonus territory than rather stick with few. If you can pull out 2-6 territory, randomised bonus maps, then go for it and vary the territory size 600 to 3200 range, then we all could find something to play on. This map is just overkill!

If you could somehow use this to make a legitimate 3200 territory diplomacy map, I'd be forever in your debt.

You are not the first one to create such an algorithm. I created a algorithm to generate random MME like maps. This is a reply from Fizzer about programmed, random maps:


What's more, is that we advertise WarLight as having "More than 1500 hand-made maps" -- this is one of our selling points. As soon as we allow programmatic maps, that number would jump up a lot, but they're no longer all hand-made. Advertising that we just have a lot of maps isn't very impressive since lots of games have thousands of generated maps, that isn't really special. Of course, this could be fixed as well by separating hand-made maps from generated ones.

It also creates problems for many of our internal systems, which are already buckling under the load of the number of maps we have. Adding many more maps could cause them to break. Of course, this can be fixed too but by now I hope you've seen a pattern that making this work end-to-end would be a very large project, and this needs to be compared and weighed against all of the other features we're working on at WarLight, which means it needs to be scheduled and prioritized against them. Unfortunately, that means that it will be very difficult to get done.

What API did you use? I'm thinking of something similar to this but for a more practical purpose (a "randomized map" ladder where a new map is effectively randomly generated from a base hex map where bonuses and territory values are manipulated to create new maps).

that's actually been thought of before, though it never went anywhere.

Bubble wrap and bubble rap are two entirely different things. Honestly I would love both.

I see it in this light:

"Are you addicted to Warlight, wan´t to loose all interest in Warlight. We have a perfect solution for you - 1 match of LD in Bubble Wrap and you will never-ever enjoy Warlight again. Guaranteed method by those who have ever played one."

- Please let me know when this ends(how many turn) and who surrendered due to lack of interest.

I feel like it would take a lot more than a 1v1 game on Bubble Wrap to get me un-addicted to WarLight. (I hope...)

Spoiler alert, if LD MA with Autopilot you get stuck in a stalemate easily. So.... yeah, :D
(I have 2k territories, but I am not winning) But still not cured of addiction

Well, considering that I have 1700 other maps to play on, I don't think it likely that a LD game on Bubble Wrap would make me lose interest in the game.
