Ti3.io Playtest - 6p [WEB-BASED, VASSAL-FREE]

Post by horseloverfat » April 19th, 2017, 12:23 am

Hello!

I've been working on a website (TI3.io) to allow for asynchronous TI3 games in conjunction with this site. It is still in an early state of development as I only just started learning php/mysql a month or so ago and have very little front-end skill, but it is just about ready for a playtest! There only a few small features that need to be added before it is ready for its first trial (e.g. voting on political cards, actually display CC's in activated systems, etc.), and these should be done in a week or so - figured I would start asking for sign-ups here.

As for how the game will run - the goal is for there to be no GM. The website should handle all AC/PC/PO/SO stuff, and there is a mechanism for rolling battles (the only tricky part might be AC play during battles). I'll be the game's GM, though I can't say I'm the deepest wellspring of TI3 knowledge - still relatively new to the game (only started a few months ago, took this on as a project to teach myself php/sql).

It may be a little rocky, and the website certainly isn't pretty, but I think it is important at this stage to begin a play test to figure out what sorts of small details of the game may have been missed in the website's development. As such, there may be times where we have to pause the game for a few days as I implement a small feature - though I hope that doesn't happen. My goal is to just be there to help things run smoothly.
