Default Colour and Modified Coal Overbuild default

This thread is open.

Posted by Redessa 2011-03-16 22:26:28 GMT

Any chance of a default colour option in user preferences please? I'd like to not have to set this every game. Default game size / rating options would be good as well.

Also, I dont think the default Modified Coal Overbuild option is correct. It seems to be ignored on the game start page, and while the lobby page says that Modified Coal Overbuild is on, when the game is started, the coal overbuild says "Rules as Written".

IMHO this should not be on by default - the default options should be rules as written as this is what players will be most familiar with. Personally I think the modified coal overbuild rule sucks. Getting a chance to over build is a great tactical opportunity and defending against it happening adds to the complexity of the game.

I can help with the first bit. It is already there.

Go to user details and tick the box that says

"Replace my colour with blue in games that I am playing" (Note: Colour-blind users may find that they cannot distinguish the blue tiles used from the purple ones)

For what it is worth I agreed in theory about the "modified coal overbuild" but can't ever remember it affecting a game I actually played (except for once when I thought about doing it, found I couldn't and then decided it was a bad idea anyway!)

Whoops. It was applying the opposite setting to the one it was supposed to apply.

Thanks looks right now. Any chance of the favourite colour option ad I don't like blue and I'm not colourblind!
