A few more questions:
1: Am I able to setup email notifications to all the players when a turn is posted and how? Or do people need to periodically check the forum thread?
2: Is there a feature in the game that tells you what units are in each territory, more specifically seazones? I am having trouble distinguishing between the ships. Mostly cruisers and battleships. Or is there a cheat sheet of the unit pictures?
3: What prevents someone from rolling out combat not liking the results so they reload the game and run the rolls again? I’m not worried about my group but just wondered when playing strangers. Most people on the forums are really great and really helpful but you do get the occasional d-bag.
1. If you play by forum the players check the forum. But every player receives the mails from the dice server. This of course is an indication that something has happened. Only if you play by Mail the players recieve the turns by mail and are informed this way.
2. If you start TripleA and have the map on the screen you will see some information on the right side. Just klick on “Territory” and use the mouse to hover over the territory you want to know more about. The information and units are presented on the right side of the screen then. Being there, hover the mouse over the unit then. You will see all information concerning that unit including the name. I recommend to take a screen shot from the purchase-units screen, though. With the help of this image you can easily distinguish between the units at any time.
3. This is why you register your emails with the dice server. You will get emails with the rolls then. This way you can be sure that no one cheated.
And: TripleA has a history mode (Menu Game-Show History). Everything that happened is presented to you and can be reproduced - and compared when using the results from the dice server.
