    Movie piracy is increasingly popular, with cheap illegal copies of all movies available everywhere.

    Proposal: Crack down on piracy. Nations that have the Movie Industry Wonder receive +$2.00 citizen income, All nations on the Black team sphere lose -1 happiness, and gain +25 to their crime prevention score.

    quotesleft.png Support For New Nations quotesright.png

    New nations face many challenges as they rise up to become members of this great Black team sphere, and it is up to the establishment to assist with their development and growth.

    Proposal: Tax our older Black team nations to assist with the development of new Black team nations. +$3.00 citizen income to nations less than 2 years old. -$3.00 citizen income to nations older than 2 years old.

    I see the above by clicking the Black Team Proposals item under Team Information. Both links named "here" lead to <http://www.cybernations.net/team_news_comments.asp?ID=3795>. This is the comment thread for ARRR Pirates. The second one should lead to <http://www.cybernations.net/team_news_comments.asp?ID=3791>, which is the correct comment thread for Support For New Nations.

  2. Government: Switch to Revolutionary - gives you 5% reduction on bills

    Improvements: You only need to keep your labour camps (-10% infrastructure upkeep costs each), harbour (for trade) and foreign ministry (for aid). You can buy the others back later.

    Trade circle: I've messaged Oloros to get you in his trade circle, which gives a 21% reduction on your infrastructure bill.

  3. Three, none of them related to infrastructure bills:

    2/4/2016  3/5/2016 Your closest advisor has died and you need to find a replacement, someone who you can trust to lead both you and your nation in the right direction. Option selected. See Current Response.

    Option 2: Appoint a prominent environmentalist. 2 points of improvement to environment.

    1/31/2016 3/1/2016 A group of citizens have petitioned for the renovation or rebuilding of a damaged section of old highway. Option selected. See Current Response.

    Option 1: Build a new highway section and close down the old section. Land area -10%. 

    1/25/2016 2/24/2016 Green Peace activists within your nation are calling on the government to create a national Earth Day holiday. They claim that this holiday will serve to remind our citizens to appreciate their environment. Option selected. See Current Response.

    Option 2: Ignore these protesters and hold a speech to remind our citizens that work must come first before concerns over the environment. Citizen income +$2.00.

  4. I was paying around $9.7m per day in total bills. Recently, the black sphere had an event that reduced this to around $9.6m, but the event has now expired. However, I now notice that even my infrastructure bills alone come to nearly $10.1m. That is a rise of $400k, when I have not changed my trades, bought infrastructure or got events that affect infrastructure maintenance cost. I have read of other people in my alliance facing the same issue (of an unexpected rise in infrastructure bills such that they exceed the total bill from before). Why is this happening? Is anyone else experiencing the same?

  5. This trade circle is in need of one member with Fish & Marble. If you are interested in joining, please reply here or send me an in-game message.


    EDIT: Or better yet, change your team colour to black and your resources to Fish and Marble as required, and send trade offers to the following nations:


    1. Kakkanad (Sugar & Spice) http://www.cybernations.net/nation_drill_display.asp?Nation_ID=525455

    2. Weedland (Wood & Crop) http://www.cybernations.net/nation_drill_display.asp?Nation_ID=421149

    3. Abo Island (Lead & Aluminium) http://www.cybernations.net/nation_drill_display.asp?Nation_ID=188822

    4. Parasio (Cattle & Pigs) http://www.cybernations.net/nation_drill_display.asp?Nation_ID=453391

    5. Starcevo (Water & Uranium) http://www.cybernations.net/nation_drill_display.asp?Nation_ID=550819


    EDIT: This circle is now complete.

  6. When DBDC started they had no treaties and were in range of the upper tier for most alliances. That made them free and deadly. Trust me I know just how deadly!
    Now DBDC are a regular alliance with big nations entrenched firmly into the web. Ten treaties and PECS is a solid commitment.
    Seven out of ten of DBDC's treaty partners also hold a treaty with NPO.
    There's a reason people don't fear DBDC anymore and it isn't because they went soft. It's because they totally muzzled themselves and to do anything not NPO approved means putting the majority of their treaty partners in a bind.

    Many people said the only danger to DBDC was DBDC, they were right.

    DBDC, by their own choice, signed treaties (from which they can withdraw) with other alliances. So they stopped being a group of rogue neutrals raiding upper tiers and waging a holy war against other neutrals, and turned into an aligned alliance. If they choose to, I see no reason why they could not go back to that situation. An alliance generally takes into account the implications its actions will have on its treaty partners (if any). This does not mean that NPO is somehow dictating DBDC's foreign policy, any more than DBDC controls NPO's foreign policy.


    EDIT: Missing words.

  7. Far from it. You have fourteen massive nations that will win pretty much any battle you fight. You also can only hit about the same amount in Pacifica and after one round probably only three.
    After two rounds you can hit none of them. Look at this logically and after two weeks you're twiddling your thumbs while they have over 380 healthy nations.

    I stand by what I said "collectively are far too small to be a danger." It's a pretty mute point anyway because neither of you have a reason to. You live in fundamentally different ranges and share allies.

    How does this imply that NPO can control DBDC's foreign policy?

  8. Although Supernova X does indeed host among the best tech seller rates on the planet, at up to 18/300 rates, our implied benefits are even greater.

    Doesn't NpO do $9m/100t deals? That seems far more producerist than $12-18m/300t deals.

    9/100 is the standard in Polaris, which values tech producing nations. But the entire atmosphere in Polaris is geared towards production, rather than exploitation, on all levels. I think perhaps it is not a coincidence that Polaris is so heavily targeted as a result of this... were the producer-oriented values of Polaris to spread, tech dealers elsewhere would also demand increased compensation for their tech.


    We are also simultaneously allied to Doom Kingdom, which is part of a dynamic upper tier entity that controls the upper tier of this world. This ensures a consistent supply of external cash aid for our surplus sellers.

    This is rather ironic, considering all the Francoist, anti-lulz, anti-chaos propaganda that you used to spread.


    Whatever, good luck with your campaign.
