Automation!
« on: March 02, 2007, 07:29:17 pm »
OK, so I've been working to add a bunch of new features for the Color War.  :)

First off, the game now knows that members belong to a team.  Each team has their own page, which shows basic info for the team as well as gives options for team members.

For racing (challenge #2), team members (including captains) can suggest races (1-8 weeks in advance) for a horse.  Then members vote on the suggestion, and captains can then enter the race.  (All of this is automated :D)

Color war activity will also be tracked automatically.

Enjoy.  :)

If you go to your Stable Page it should say "You are a member of the _______ Team" and if you click on the name of the team it should take you to the team page. That's how it works for me anyway.

Great job Shanthi, I love this feature and I REALLY love the feature listing each horses upcoming races(that thread wouldn't let me post so I thought I'd just give you kudos here!!) ;D

I forgot to note that team members will get stable alerts when there are new things to vote on, and team captains will get alerts when new votes have been submitted.

Shanthi, I had a curious question.
Is there any way that you could list the track location along with the race name for the suggested races/voting column?  It's certainly not a big deal, but it sure would make team race decisions a lot easier, I think.  Location does play a factor, afterall, with shipping costs & energy levels to consider.  Or am I a dummy and am already missing an easier way to view this info (besides looking up each suggested race individually)...?

Just curious.   :)
