Due to the lack of interest in DOF, the game has been shut down.
A new game is currently being developed, one which takes place in our own universe!  So keep checking for updates to this new game!

    Darth Taral wrote:Heh, it seems that in the rules you are not allowed to claim planets for individual players. You can't claim this for yourself.

    Willice Evans wrote:I was about to say that.

    then a conqueror (only faction, not individual player) can claim the planet


    Well, thats when the planet has no forces though.....

    Darth Zarran wrote:till Ta'u or Marro say's that, it's my planet.

    Darth Taral wrote:All right. Could Ta'u or Marro post now?

    Ta'u wrote:Z is now the proud owner of a planet.

    Willice Evans wrote:Um, Ta'u, the rules kinda say no independant people cant own a planet.

    Marro Dayre wrote:CONQUERING PLANETS
    Conquering planets can happen in a variety of ways, all depending on what kind of resistance is met. The following are how to conquer planets under different scenarios:

    Planet has space and land forces/facilities
    If a planet has both space and land forces, they must all be destroyed before the conqueror can lay claim to the planet. Before a player/faction can conquer the ground, they must first conquer space. This would simply mean destroying all the space forces, or having them surrender/retreat. Once the space forces are gone, you can then land troops and vehicles on the surface and wipe out the facilities and ground forces. In a straight out fight, all must be destroyed, both facilities and infantry/vehicles. If the planet being conquered surrenders, then the conqueror may lay claim to the planet. The terms of surrender can be up to the two parties involved, and the fate of the remaining forces of the losing party can be determined via the Holonet.

    Planet has Only Space Forces
    If a planet only has space forces, meaning no facilities, infantry and vehicles, then the conqueror can lay claim to the planet from orbit.

    Planet has Only Ground Forces
    If a planet has no space forces, meaning ships or stations, then the conqueror must land troops and destroy the land forces, unless the planet surrenders.

    Planet Has No Forces
    If a planet has forces neither on the ground or in space, then a conqueror(only faction, not individual player) can claim the planet from orbit. However, the player them self must be in orbit of the planet in question and not just NPC ships.

    How to Lay Claim to Conquered Planets
    Laying claim to planets occurs in the holonet, that way it is guaranteed that all players can see that the planet is to be claimed. To lay claim, create a post in the holonet with the following info:

    Player and/or faction Name
    Planet Being Claimed
    Combat (Yes, No)
    Surrendered (Yes, No)

    Now if a planet was defeated in combat, or the planet surrendered, then the conqueror can create the post in the holonet and the planet's ownership will be changed over by an admin. However, if the planet was one that was claimed to that had neither combat or surrendered, then when the conqueror posts in the holonet, the current owner of the faction has 24 hours to retaliate. This includes sending a ship to hyperspace to the planet in question. If this occurs, then the claim is invalid and combat or surrender must occur.

    Willice Evans wrote:Well, this is truly mind boggling, lets try to get ahold od Marro, and see what he thinks, for now, i guess lets just say he has the planet, but i will try to get marro's opinion, unless you dont want me to.

    Darth Taral wrote:Who made the site, Marro or Ta'u?

    Willice Evans wrote:Ta'u but marro is the manager, and on many occasions, in fact lke 2 days ago, Marro made the final call.

    Marro Dayre wrote:well, ta'u registered the site, but I made it. The original intention of the rules was only factions would be able to claim planets.

    Ta'u wrote:it was my idea but marrow made it happen. then it is settled, sorry DarthZ

    Marro Dayre wrote:actually, it was both our ideas. See you had this site as a general RP site, I wanted to move the star wars RP off of the FT:TUF site so we came up with DOF here. Fun times, lots of trial and error, but seems like we created a very popular engine as a bunch of other forums now employ it Very Happy

    Marro Dayre wrote:Also, I'm beginning to think it's time for a better skin. But one skin at a time, first gotta finish Event Horizon, then Star Trek Universe, then this one

    Ta'u wrote:The whole idea still needs improvement. I propose a suggestion box. Ill make one up in a php form that emails me and you the suggestions. (if you would like to be emailed)

    Willice Evans wrote:I think the engine is fine, i think its the finer details, such as planets, minirals, and usergroups that need to be finely tuned.

    I think that the faction leaders should have mod abbilities in there faction section, so they can delete old forum and make important topics important, (Only in THERE faction section)

    Ta'u wrote:i like the idea, save it for the suggestion box

    Marro Dayre wrote:yeah, that'll work. Also, I'm workin up an (old) concept of mine of me essentially being an "AI" and start having a larger story at work. You'll all be apprised of my progress naturally

    Willice Evans wrote:I had to put my idea down before i forgot, this is just a small idea, i dont even know if its possible, but yeah, Faction leaders have moderation rights over all people in there faction, this makes it easyer for you two as all you have to do is administrate while faction leaders moderate there factions, they will not have control over anyone but the people in there faction, and if they cant be a good moderator, then they are not fit to be faction leaders, its the easyest way to tell if someone is aq good leader, if they can control there members......i will submit it when the thing comes, i just diddnt want to forget.

    Marro Dayre wrote:define control their members? you mean give the faction leaders ban privs? even if you do, that's not possible according to the way the forum runs, only admin and (I think) moderators can should it be set to that.

    Willice Evans wrote:No, moderation privlages over the people in there factions, not banning, but if an offence that seriouse occers it would be routed to the admins, this way, the admins have more time to update and refine the forum, this also helps so that later in the game if you cant control a certain number of members, you are either relived of command or you are not allowed to have more members than what you have, i think its a good idea, though it could backfire, i only have one member, but some people dont respond to authority, (Like low authorities such as mods) so this could be a bad thing.

    Marro Dayre wrote:well they'd have like lock post and all that stuff, which is essentially what we agreed to about 5 or so posts up and then you brought it up again Wink

    Willice Evans wrote:Well, what i ment earlyer was just in there Faction section, here its all members in your faction, outside of the faction section.

    Oh i am just going to put something out here now.....its faction not fraction

    (sorry it just really pisses me off when people say fraction, (i am obssesive compulsive)
