westeros?
Would be pretty awesome if someone made a Westeros variant. I've seen a few on other sites, but pretty much just to print and play in person.

Possible to implement this rule variant?
I was wondering, is it feasible for a variant like Ambition and Empire (http://www.dipwiki.com/index.php?title=Ambition_and_Empire) to be implemented on vDiplomacy? It's not just a map variant, it also has a few additional rules. The biggest one is the Diplomacy Points: you get one per supply centre you own, and can issue one order to a neutral unit per point. Others can do so as well, and the order most commonly given to the unit is the one that gets used.

For a specific variant, you can also check the files (variant info page -> "View/Download code"): If there is an folder called "interactiveMap", that contains an image called "IA_smallmap.png", the variant offers support for the interactive map.

Perhaps add a note on variant pages saying if they support interactive map?

Not a huge concern, but possible.

This is causing problems for a minority of people as its incompatible with IE 8 and below, my suggestion is that it should be automatically disabled until this can be fixed because new players will not understand why they can't input moves. It's also not "intuitive" to disable the feature requires some looking around on the options.
GOD (1555 D Mod (B))

Pff, who uses IE anyway?
Most of the business world uses IE. But IE 8 is pretty much dead.
tobi1 (1948 D Mod (S) (B))
25 Aug 14 UTC
Thanks for the feedback! :-)

Synapse, unfortunately IE8 and prior will never be compatible with this feature since the browser simply does not support a key element of the interactive map. So if you aren't able to update or change your browser, your out of luck concerning the feature.
I'm currently on vacation but perhaps I can improve usability for users that cannot use the interface when I'm home again.
Synapse (814 D (B))
26 Aug 14 UTC
It's not that I can't use the feature, it's that I can't enter moves because the feature is automatically enabled. And it requires a dig around on the options to disable it.

It's not the end of the world, but any new players with IE8 or prior will simply be unable to enter moves for a reason unbeknownst to them, and this will result in NMRs and complaints on the mod forum, etc...
tobi1 (1948 D Mod (S) (B))
26 Aug 14 UTC
Thanks. I wasn't aware of this problem.
Theoretically the interactive map should not block the normal interface and the users that try to use the interactive method should only get a small notification that their browser does not support the map (if that's the case).
I will definitely fix this in around one week.

Suggested Feature
Larger maps make it possible that players face stalemate lines while other areas of the map remain dynamic. If these players have a large number of units (as is likely if stalemate lines have formed), it requires the repetitive entry of exactly the same orders. May I recommend that a button is created which allows you to 'Enter the same moves as last time'? There's no reason that one or two moves shouldn't then be modified afterwards.

ID#19708 looking for replacement. "The last war before we invade aliens"
Map is WWIV. I'm the Sichuan empire, with 24 supply centers, 19 units, no powerful enemies of consequence, and current leader. Progressing to around 27 centers soon, most probably. However, I have school soon so I need a replacement. See http://vdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=19708

hey oli and the mods I have a quick question.
My friends and I are thinking about doing a livestream in December when we all are finally together.
I was wondering if they could make their own accounts so we could all play a 4 player only map.
They won't play any other games but the ones we make for the stream and they won't play or join any of my personal games.
So basically its a free for all between 4 good friends. What could go possibly wrong?:)

I have a couple of rules questions regarding variants.
With variants that say they do not allow for a draw, is that the case? Do those formats not have stalemate lines, or how do those games resolve if a stalemate is reached.
