Island Conquest v1.24

Submitted by JansiGX
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Short Description: Take over the islands, build ships, make upgrades, destroy others and get allied with who you want. On every island there are resource mines. Upgrade your buildings, defense towers and shipyards to survive attacks of others. Destroy shipyards to take control of any other island. In total there are 17 different units (12 ships, 2 submarines, 3 air-crafts) and 73 islands. Ships get more powerful with upgrades so basically it's the easiest way to win. Also every ship gets experience on his own that can give it extra power.

General Rules.
-When player lose control over all his islands he is defeated and will lose all ships he had.
-Ships can earn experience through battles to increase there power. Idea is simple: 1 kill - 1 exp. Each ship has 4 levels. Ship must sink 20 opponents to reach it.
-You can make allies with everyone.
-you can't attack yourself and your allies.

Game Options:
1.Storms
A tornado constantly appears in the middle of the map and wonders around

2.All Conquered
All islands are randomly given to all players, they get 25'000 starting resources and some upgrades.

3.Main Base
Every players will have The main Shipyard which is a lot better than regular shipyards. Losing the Main Shipyard brings you defeat!!

4.Pirates
Pirates appear on islands near center once in a while. If no one is fighting pirates they will increase there numbers and occupy middle island. Once they occupy it Pirate king will appear.


Commands to use:
-up wood (upgrades all Lumber mills you have)
-up gold (upgrades all Markets you have)
-ship up (upgrades all Shipyards you have)
-a (turns on automatized build ordering for currently selected shipyards )

    I fixed some of the spelling errors on v1.04. I also added new command for red that can make game more difficult and exiting.
    And thanks for calling this map fun.

    Nice map.
    I suggest u should put in food....
    and u could upgrade ur fleet limit by food limit researches. cos massing the basic ship is the best tatic yet (with good tech). (hard to control so many ships and put in the production....)
    also shortcuts to the wood and gold houses would be good. like u can upgrade ur lumbermill to lvl 5 and lvl 9 with one click.

    I'm not shore if massing basic ships is best tactic but as it was suggested I put ship limit in v1.05. Now every ship needs 1 food to build. every shipyard gives 12 food(max level shipyard gives 24); max food is 240. So now every player must have 20 islands to have max size of fleet. Since there are 73 island only 3 players will have max number of ships at the same time (more it all shipyard is upgraded to level 5).
    Also I made primitive command to upgrade wood and gold houses. Just type -up wood or -up gold to upgrade all building to next level.
    More important change is that I reduced build time for all strong ships and made Guard towers upgradeable to Cannon Towers.

    quite a fun game but some players were confused about how you got new islands
    I suggest you make a message display at the start or in the quests that elaborates on this.

    Keep up the good work

    Edit: I also seem to very often get server splits when hosting this map, is this just me or is this happening to other people?

    4/5

    I removed memory leaks that shows up when ever you take control of any island (thanks to Hive workshop tutorials). If server splits was a result of memory leaks than it should be solved now. new leak-less trigger is a bit different in way it works so there are some changes in some islands. I didn't fully check if there are no bugs but I everything should work properly.

    Since there's upgrades I guess there's an attack upgrade, which increases the attack dice - if this hits 18 or more, I think the server can split.
