I've found the zombies just too OP. I spam missiles for an hour and then three zombie hordes come in and undo all the progress :mad: I find that it depends a lot on the other people in your region. If everyone is in on researching a cure, then defeating the zombies is really easy. If not, then it's...

A simple zombie tracker

Hi everyone I wrote a simple web app for tracking zombies in your region. It requires a web server with shell access, and Python 3.4 or newer. You can grab a copy of it on GitHub . As its name implies, it's been through two past zombie apocalypses already -- so it's pretty well-tested :) If you're n...

How do you tell it what region to track?

I notice that for regions with no delegate or no founder, the API returns "0". For example, https://www.nationstates.net/cgi-bin/api.cgi?v=7&region=the_rejected_realms&q=founder yields: <REGION id="the_rejected_realms"> <FOUNDER>0</FOUNDER> </REGION> when you'd expect it ...

NationStates API for Haskell

I was bored this week so I wrote an NationStates API wrapper for Haskell. It's very incomplete right now: it only supports the Nation and Region APIs, and many shards are missing. I'm releasing it early in the hope that it can serve useful to someone. Links: Hackage - GitHub - Documentation Features...

The capital city of Asterville tends to follow an expressionist style. Its organic forms blend in with the surrounding environment, such that it's often hard to see where the town ends and the forest begins. Not that there was such a distinction in the first place, of course.

While the idea of communism has been raised in the past, advocacy tended to die out as the money started rolling in.
