Game setting - fast play setting

Post by Alex486 » Fri Mar 20, 2015 1:57 am

In the game board menu where you setup the game (map, teams, paid bonus, etc), add a check field called Fast Play. When this check box is used, the time for being skipped is reduced from 24 hours to 12 hours. This will speed up the game.

Got the idea from our tournament play which was trying to force significant play in a 48/72 hour window.

12 is fair IMO bc most players do not sleep 12 hours, work 12 hours, or go to school for 12 hours. If you are in need of more than 12 hours of sleep, then you have a medical problem and having a need to play is not the right priority.
Anything is feasible with enough money and power.

Get ready to get your teeth kicked in, it will make for a good education.

We could make it 1x, 2x, and 3x speeds.

1x is 12hr, 2x is 6hr, 3x is 3hr.
