Title: NationStates Pages?
Post by: Gnoll on November 25, 2011, 09:45:10 am
Well, since the relaunch is coming up (we need a set launch date for that, BTW), I thought- hey! Let's make NationStates pages for our creatures! We could even make a new "Origin" region!

My main nation (currently) http://www.nationstates.net/nation=kabalu

Seems okay, except for...

7 hours ago: Kabalu was reclassified from "Father Knows Best State" to "Corrupt Dictatorship".
1 day 18 hours ago: Kabalu was reclassified from "Inoffensive Centrist Democracy" to "Father Knows Best State".

Well, that was quick.



The problem with NS is that it's geared towards a human type of culturo-political system. Nothing wrong with that on its own, but once you use it to simulate alien societies, things start to break down. Hive intelligence collapses, stable genetic caste systems fall into disarray, herd-based psychologies fail to mesh properly with the game's pack-based system of thought, etc.   :-\

NationStates gets old anyway. I got tired of it; the novelty wore off after a couple of months. And Yuu has a very good point, so this topic should be over now.

OK then, I guess.
