Probably a good idea to implement some kind of spy system prior to attacking another nation

Suggestion: a chat (the current one will do but perhaps in a separate room) below the game or to the right.

This is probably really low on the to do list as well, but some sort of tutorial would probably do wonders for figuring out how everything works. A brief description of geo efficiancy, if the different land color squares make any different to stats. Basic things. Should probably also make a description of what the techs do when you hover over them or click on them, but before you buy them. Otherwise you might click on a cool sounding tech that turns out to be worthless, and you just wasted a level up.

Speaking of level ups, will there be a way to undo your selections, or even reset your whole nation? With what you said to ZuckeR, I realized that there could very well be a noob or even somebody who doesn't realize it that will end up getting to 0% efficiancy and be screwed for the game, especially if somebody comes by and ends up taking most of their squares so they can't recover efficiancy.

Sorry for laying this all on you TIM, but I had the ideas and wanted to get them out there before I forgot

Did you read the TODO List? Part 6, 7 and 8 pretty much cover that i would say.

See 6.  Land doesn't do anything at the moment.  Eventually there will be mountains, which you will not be able to capture.  The mountains, just like water currently is, are non-capturable, which means they will cause geo efficiency penalties if you build around them. :P

Resetting your nation will come eventually.  We're not even to PVP yet.  Resetting will start you completely over though.  As it currently stands, you can Evacuate ALL of your land, refresh, and it will place you in a brand new location somewhere randomly on the map.  You can ALWAYS evac, so there is always a way to recover.

When you level up, you'll now get a ton of information about the techs available.  There's also a tab at the top now that will switch you to your list of techs.  Click those for full details.

Your attributes now display and are all calculating properly.

There's a fuck ton of JS in this change, so you may need to ctrl+f5 to get the new set of code.

Ah, sorry. I didn't realize my suggestions were already on the to do list. Or rather, I wasn't thinking when I made them and didn't realize they were pretty much the same things. I'm sorry for that.

Hmm.  I'm thinking this might need to be a tab.  I do intend to have this up on Kongregate once we get that far. ;)
I'd use the same setup, but dump users into a different room.  It's how the orgs system within the CMS works.

I've added a few more things to the todo list.

So question - is there any point to building our nation before most of this stuff goes in?

I don't know what effect all of the attributes have, so I don't want to get to a position where I've screwed myself by picking this over that, or by expanding too much, or by missing out on exploration bonuses, etc.

In other words, is it better to keep trucking away and leveling up, or will I most likely have to do a full reset in order to take best advantage of certain aspects of the game?

Right now, the game is barely an alpha.  As we move between phases, the game will be reset, the map regenerated, etc.

I have no idea how long we'll be in alpha.  I'm building this in my spare time, which is very limited most days.  I'd say we might not hit beta till after tax season.

I have plans for getting the prize orbs done soon, then purchaseables, then pvp.  Prize orbs will give you points (yeah, points for the site), while purchaseables will cost points.  The longer you hold onto a prize orb, the more points you get.  That's why PVP will be so important.  Right now, the game doesn't have much of a purpose.  Click some boxes, level up, who cares.  When you start earning points, and you can attack other nations to steal their prize orbs, things get much more interesting.

I'm goanna call it that once 1-7 are complete, I'll call it Beta.  If everyone wants to keep their shit, so be it.  If they want to start over, we can do that too.

When all items are complete, or at least everything that makes the game what it is, is complete, I'll call it 1.0 and wipe everything.

1.5 will happen when the game hits Kongregate
2.0 will happen when I build the inner workings stuff for Kingdoms.  This is a completely new thing that the old game didn't have, so it should set us far apart. :)

Checked off weapon selection.  It's not perfect, but it works.  Apparently you can't hide select options in a select box without actualyl removing them, then re-adding them in the future.  Meh, fuck it, it works for now.

A speed boost would be really good. Ie. Performance.
It takes too long to gain your new squares.

If there was not a delay, you could spend a few minutes writing a bot, then consume the entire map.

tl;dr: the delay is there for a reason, don't ask about it again.
