SoulBay Game 7 Started!!



I know I have been slow, but game 7 has finally arrived. I have made a lot of changes to the underline code of soulBay so please post any questions or anything you think could be a bug. I have not had the time to test it as much as I wanted, but I wanted to get this game going. With that said, WELCOME TO GAME 7!!

No plans on how long this game will go, or when it will end. Just as before that will be left up to the players to decide.

There have been a lot of changes, here are some of the ones you may notice or can effect gameplay.......
  • Enhanced Personal Details Page - The personal details page is now even easier for you to use. The columns of each table on this page have been changed into links, thus allowing you to be able to sort each table based on the columns.

  • Improvements to sale price gaurd - This is some tricky code, and I did not have time to change it like I had hoped. But it has been improved in hopes that it will better guard from ads that are unrealistic.

  • Sales page improved - You can now see your own sales on the advertisement page. This is an option that is enabled by the default. It allows you to see your ads, listed with the others, so you can see where they rank. You can disable it and go back to the old form using the link at the top.

  • Nightly dividends changed, dividend page removed - This is the only change in the dynamics of how the game operates. The dividend page that shows how users rank based on cash on hand has been completely removed. The reason for this being that it has changed so that nightly dividends are no longer based on cash on hand. Instead nightly dividends are calculated based on the stocks you own in the sense that:
    1) the more shares you own the more money you get (same as last time)
    2) the amount you get per soul is now calculated by the souls networth. Meaning souls with higher networth produce more money.
    3) each users soul you own will still cap out at $500 for the shares you own and $500 for the shares you are currently selling (just as before)
    4) Special souls are now calculated completely differently. This is something I am trying, we will have to see how it effects the markets. Right now just owning one share of a special soul will max out the $500 you can get. That means that all special souls are valued the same in dividend calculations. And that you only need 1 share in ownership, and 1 share being advertised for sale, to max out as much money as you can get from that particular special soul. Again basically this means that special shares are HIGHLY valuable (so valuable you don't need many), and that all special soul shares are the same, no matter what they are selling for, and no matter how many shares are distributed in the market.


Hope this is fun, I don't normally change so much before each game. But these changes should help make the game simpler and easier to use. Post if you have any questions, comments, suggestions, etc....but otherwise, enjoy!

Will there be any way to see how we rank compared to others at all other than the price of souls?

That is seen in the networth chart. There is a link to see the networth chart as soon as you enter soulBay. Otherwise you can see it directly here:

Jensen, why does the lotto say that you can bet once a day but after you place a bet it says you can only bet once until there is a winner declared?

Also, perhaps I have no net worth but I am not appearing on the graph atm.

I've also noticed it appears the graph is not updating?
:frown:

(EDIT: Also noticed I bought something and tried to sell it for a mere 500 over what I bought it for, but it says I can't and need to reduce it to a more realistic value? I don't get that at all...)

Although the graph says it updates at 12, 4, and 8:00 MST. I believe it either exists an hour into the future, or is on Central Time.

"Last Updated: October 28 04:03:02 PM MST"
It is currently 3:08PM MST October 28.

Or is it projecting results? Just something I noticed.

whoa...and why did it date my post an hour too early.

Perhaps a rip in the space time continuum caused by Philbo's ridiculous lead in this game.

You can change the time zone which is shown on the forums in your personal settings (aka ontrol panel/options)

You are right though, the update time is wrong, the server is actually set to CDT instead of MST. The reason for this being is right now I don't have an easy way to do daylight savings time, so I just switch it back and forth from CDT and MST. Anyways, I switched it back to MST (for the time being)
