    The next request would be to destroy your own province infrastructure a /buildings when another player is invading your country... it has been suggested many times in past, this is essentially revisiting familiar ground

    Sorry, didnt know that. I personally can see how that can be a big topic as it would impact the game significantly. I am personally not a fan of the idea, but I want this feature for harbours because you can choose where to build them specifially. Its a unique feature and I think it could benefit from being able to relocate them (with a cost) instead of destroying them.

    Yes it's a good idea, and in fact I think it would be good if you could dismantle anything you build. It would enable you to conduct a scorched earth campaign when the enemy is advancing, to deprive him of vital infrastructure such as factories.


    It would need to take a certain amount of time though, say, 25% of the time it required to build something. Also, you would get a small number of resources back.

    I like the idea but im not so sure as it could slow down the game by a lot, but having that choise makes sense. Harbor is more of a passive thing, as it cant slow down the game that much but instead speed it up.

    I agree but be little bit practical here how you gonna feel like if your army is not being commanded by you but someone.

    This will lower morale of your army making them think that you are in capable to be a leader.


    I will support this but there should be some penalty to balance this as I see it can highly imbalance gameplay resulting multiple tickets and increase workload of GO.

    I agree, there should be limitations/penalties that are based on game balance and historical elements (like cooperation between allies and Germany/Italy during ww2).


    The opportunities that this provides in terms of game experience can be significant tho. Think it motivates people to coordinate better in terms of their time zones and activity times. Maybe it even makes the experience better for more casual players. Plus keeping the interactions in the game makes the spy reports more relevant.


    We losely discuss it here but I think this topic should be explored in more detail. Only thing that I worry about tho is if this would make the game more complex. I love that S1914 is minimalistic compared to other strategy games, even when comparing to S1. I would also love to see this game grow, but i dont think its worth it if it changes the game itself. But that depends on to what extent / how something like this is implemented.

    Wasnt there a similar event but for 30p map a while ago?


    Dont remember how it was called but you started with 3 fully upgraded provinces, 20 artillery orso and tanks.


    I didn't enjoy it as much personally but a historical version would be interesting

    You could prevent that by making a better and more interactive system. Example:


    You could allow coalition members to "donate" their troops to the coalition. The members of that coalition can then vote to elect their "General", who then controls those troops. You could also give other players the ability to "suggest" where the troops should go and such, while final decision falls on the "General" to do so. I think this would avoid the necessity of discord for example.


    As for backstabbing, I think its part of the game. I see this game as a political sandbox where you are not locked into relationships (like in other games). With this system however, each player will give portion of their army willingly. If they want to be stupid and give up control of their armies, then its on them.


    You could prevent some additional abuse by blocking the attack option of troops donated by "Player A" to attack nations that "Player A" is allied to. Plus, in this case the "General" cant use donated troops to attack "Player A" since after kicking them the troops will go back under their control.


    Raman02334 I like your skepticism. But I agree that adding this kind of action is a good idea. IMO coalitions dont provide any advantage other than finishing the game "safer" and faster. This would make them more useful and fun, id rather not use discord or other social media to coordinate if i dont have to.

    Hi,


    Think everyone can agree that placing a harbor at a specific location can give you a significant advantage. I think it would be a great addition to the game to have the ability to destroy the previously built one, so you can build a new one (relocate) somewhere else.


    Personal example: Took over The Ottomans but the player did not build the Harbour next to Constantinople. Now my troops go all the way around the black sea cus its shorter :|

    Hey,


    Didnt S1914 have that already? I dont remember specifically when but when they added planes in the game and option to pick a nation yourself, you had to spend goldmarks to join such a game.


    I like the idea. However, I dont really have a problem with GM users. More money they spend the better the app gets (i think you also remember the days when there was no app).


    The problem in my opinion is the amount of GM you get from winning a game. It doesnt seem to be much. Id even prefer if they had different currency for winning games (especially when you use limited or no GM). The exchange rate of that currency for ingame actions can be lower and would kinda motivate me to join more games

    On a similar note: I've got a beast desktop from doghouse systems with a Geforce/EVGA graphics card with 32GB of RAM/8GB of video ram. My video card can push three 24" monitors at max res with no issues. I use a separate browser for the game (chrome for everything normal, opera for the game) when I'm playing 3 games in 3 tabs and I look at what is eating up system resources the 3 largest processes are invariably the three browser tabs. More than anything open in chrome, more than photoshop (even with a 20"x 30" image at 300dpi open), more than my ide or development server, more than 3ds max, more than video editing, no matter what I have open this game is hogging the most resources. I don't have a heat problem because my machine is a beast but I do hear the fan every once in a while if a lot is going on in the games.

    I suggest setting up power plan with 40% - 45% max processor state settings (plugged for PC I guess) to keep your PC in "idle state" while you have few tabs open.


    As for the rest, I never really noticed much on PC unless I have Supremacy running while playing a game. If you want to multitask while having Supremacy open I really recommend using Opera GX. Its same as Opera but has the built in RAM and CPU usage limiters. The only downside I see however is when you have multiple tabs open in Opera GX (while you have ram/cpu limiter active) the games dont run in the background. Basically mean it works best with 1 game open, if you wanna switch between them you will have to wait a few secs for them to load.


    I never really understood why the game is so demanding but I hope this makes sense and helps you out a bit.

    Hey, so I have a question that has been bothering me with Supremacy (both this and 1914). Why is this game so graphically demanding?


    Usually on my PC this is not a problem but as soon as I start Supremacy on my laptop gets flaming hot and the fans go at 100%. Its like i start a volcanic eruption inside my laptop every time i start this game!


    The only way I can prevent this is by limiting the maximum processor state to 45% through the power plan settings of my laptop. This does not hurt the game performance and gives my laptop a break. I think devs should look at optimizing this game as well as Supremacy1914, I've been a fan for 10 years now and never understood why both games are so demanding. There should be a graphics setting option or at least limiting the processor usage option inside the game (at least for the steam version one). Its like the game uses all the power that my laptop has even though it definitely does not need it.


    Some context:


    To give some context, I have Surface Pro 4. My laptop uses less fans and heats up less while playing Europa Universalis 4 and even Imperator Rome. Hell, I even played most of Skyrim on this thing without my fans ever being turned on (Skyrim is not a good comparison tho). I also lower my resolution for all my games, even for Supremacy (since my laptop has 4K resolution).


    I see this problem everywhere with Supremacy. I tried Chrome and Opera browsers, steam version for 1914 (which is even more demanding) and even phone versions sucks up my battery like a hungry vampire.


    Solution?:


    As I said, I would love to see more settings options for this game and possible limiter to how much of my CPU and memory this game uses. A battery saver option for the phone version would be great as well, I do not mind sacrificing visuals or instant access to the menu for less battery usage at all.


    For those who have the same issue:


    If you have the same problem as me this is how I make sure Supremacy does not turn my laptop into a heating system:


    1. Lower your resolution if it is higher than 1080P.


    2. Use separate browser for the game. I use Opera for everything, but I have chrome just for playing the game. I do this since I notice my Opera browser still acting weird after turning off the game tab (same happened with chrome). So my advice is to have another browser for the game.


    2.5: Use Opera GX Browser, It has a built in CPU and Memory limiter (completely forgot about this when I was writing)


    3. Limit the Maximum Processor State through the power options. This is not an easy thing to do on some laptops since you have to enable it first, but you only have to do this once. The whole process sounds more complicated than it is so dont worry about it.

    How I do it:

    - Go to Control Panel, then "Hardware and Sound" and there click on "Power Options". (or search edit power plan after pressing windows key and from there move to power options)

    - You will most likely have "Balanced" selected, I recommend not touching this one and instead selecting another one for this.

    - After selecting or creating a new power plan, go to "Change plan settings", then "Change advanced power settings" .

    - A small window should open, there you should look for "Processor power management" and there select "Maximum processor state".

    - I set this value at 50%. On my laptop, for me the fans start up after 45% but it may differ from your laptop. You do not have to change "Minimum processor state", in fact i would recommend not to set it higher than your maximum processor state setting (dont know even if that is possible).


    - What this does? In short, it tells the laptop that it can only use 50% of its maximum power (depending on what you put in). The game still works fine and does not heat up the laptop. Why Supremacy uses so much power even though it definitely does not need it I do not know, but this at least limits it.


    P.S: You might not have "Processor power management" option available. You can fix this through RegEdit, just google how to enable it and there are threads on official windows forums. Sometimes it works differently due to updates and I think official forum will explain it better than I ever will.


    I am sorry if I posted this under the wrong section, I dont use forums that much and was defiantly not planning to make this thread this long :D I hope this helps someone and devs can look into this problem.


    With love :*

    Hi, sorry if this is a wrong thread but im not used to forums.


    I read somewhere that talking about bans is prohibited on the forum so I think the next option is to get in contact with admins?


    I have had my account almost 10 years now and i play this game on and off. Somewhere along the line however I was banned in community chat in game when it was first introduced. I dont remember who (which admin) banned me or why, but as i remember it was cus i was posting those texts that come up as a ****** or something.


    Anyways its been years since i played this game and i wanna come back since its finally available on phones, but would like to chat with some people and honestly I dont want to give up on my ancient account just to be able to talk or ask questions every now and then in chat.


    Who can i contact about this issue or how?
