With the beta starting in just over a week and a half, I’m working on trying to finalise a few bits and pieces here and there. Obviously it’s difficult to make any major changes, but some small ones are still possible.
Firstly, some QoL is being added to alliances, while they’re still a little bare bones at the moment (and we’ll come to this at a later date), I’ve added the ability for the alliance leaders to keep an ‘announcement’ box at the top of the page, as well as add ‘Notes’ to players.
The announcement box is a good place to store information which alliance members should be aware of, it can include links to things like discord, to battle strategies, it’s up to you really, it’s a freeform text box with Markdown support for basic formatting, and is viewable to all alliance members viewing the alliance page.
The ‘Notes’ system, allows you to assign a note of up to 80 characters to a specific alliance member, this could be their role, or action (for example, where they’re colonising), again, it’s freeform, so use your imagination.
For alliance leaders, the alliance page looks a little messy, I do apologise for that, it’ll be cleaned up in time, but I was aiming for functionality over beauty in this case:
For alliance members, everything is a little cleaner:
These changes are scheduled to go live prior to the round starting, looking at fixing up a couple more issues first!
