I'm slightly suspicious of Issue 223. I did CTE about 2 years ago...and still haven't gotten this issue. I'm going to put Zombie in pre-title and see if that does anything, although I'm pretty sure I've tried that before too and...nothing. Well, we shall see.

I've receive that egg on two nations (both of which had CTE'd) and neither had 'zombie' in the pretitle or any other field.

That makes sense with CTE being a trigger. I wish I knew for sure if "Zombie" in pretitle was also a trigger. I really don't want to CTE again just to try and get this one...

Report

2 reports of easter egg 80

Raubhauznilhe, Bhanbuzrilhe.
Somehow, Raubhanaunilhe was just not lucky, since its pizza industry has survived. but Bhanbuzrilhe when as far down as -10,79 on 13 august 2020.
Bhanbuzrilhe has received the issues with less then 149.15 on Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index

other report. Globally. after all nations changed their animal to christmas bat, their motto to include Moo, NationStates, friendship, and include a color plus holy in their pretitle. only 16 easters egg on a total of 87 nations have yet to be found, (or 31 if we include holy, because I believe the youngest nations just do not quality for that one)

Maybe someone is right about the population critera, or partially right.
Nations in Green hills found less easter eggs then Nations in Jeinnhezslhaunia, or nations in Lunaria.
it might because nations in Green hills are much younger then others, and thus did not pass through the pool of issues, which reduce the chances of easter appearing.
talking about those.
Nations in Lunaria only need to find 3 easter eggs (excluding Cebhzna (too young)
nations in Jeinnhezslhaunia only need to find 5 easter eggs (excluding Lhraizshaurzria and Jhaulzbhia, who both found aliens)
and comparaison, Nations in Green hils still need to find 26 easter eggs. (this exclude former (olympics).) Since
so, yeah there has to be a link between etheir population / or issues answered, and easters egg.

not the numbers exclude easters egg 80 (linked to pizza) and 78 (has to be linked to population. considering it was found by all my olders nations and none of younger)

What is an Easter Egg?

An Easter Egg is a special type of issue that nations can only ever encounter once. They're meant to be jokes and references about NationStates that would otherwise not be suitable in a normal issue. They also often have strange and esoteric requirements before being able to receive it. Because of the requirements I just mentioned, it can be difficult to pin down exactly what triggers an Easter Egg. The explanations in this post are as accurate as we as a community have been able to determine, but please keep in mind that this post might not be 100% accurate.

It is advised that you wait until your nation has at least 1 billion population before hunting for Easter eggs. Many of these issues require changing customizable fields and as such smaller nations are often unable to meet the requirements. Furthermore, many of these issues also seem to have a population requirement somewhere around 1 billion, so even if you're able to fill in the fields correctly, you might still be too young to be eligible. This seems to be an intentional mechanic as it ensures only experienced players who can appreciate the content of the Easter eggs will receive them.

Good luck, Hunter.



#77: World To End, Or Possibly Just Mark Anniversary
Full Issue Text

#77 was written by Max Barry and automatically given to every nation on NS' one year anniversary - even to nations who were set to vacation mode. It was later turned into a regular Easter Egg.

Nations become eligible to receive #77 after they have found several other Easter eggs. Currently, the required minimum Easter eggs before #77 seems to be 3.

#78: Should We Pull The Lever? [Meddlers; ed: SalusaSecondus]
Full Issue Text

Nations become eligible to receive #78 if they have "Holy" in their pretitle.

#80: Aliens Wish Peace/Trade Agreement [Exiled; ed: SalusaSecondus]
Full Issue Text

Nations become eligible to receive #80 when they have either "Cow" as the national animal or "Moo" as the national motto.

#215: What's Your Favourite Colour? [Antioch and the East; ed: Sirocco]
Full Issue Text

Nations become eligible to receive #215 if they have a color in their pretitle. The list of colors that trigger #215 most likely includes all 11 options in the issue.

#223: Zombie Attack! [Naliitr; ed: Sirocco]
Full Issue Text

#223 seemingly has two separate ways to become eligible to receive it. The first is to have ceased to exist and then resurrect. The second is to have "Zombie" in you pretitle (and thus not requiring CTE'ing).

#256: Suburbs Are Out Of This World [Scolopendra; ed: Sirocco]
Full Issue Text

The requirements to receive #256 are still not entirely known. It most likely requires high crime rates, but also might require high scientific advancement or specific space program policies. Youth Rebelliousness does not trigger this issue.

#266: Breaching the Great Fourth Wall of @@NAME@@ [Reploid Productions; ed: Reploid Productions]
Full Issue Text

Nations become eligible to receive #266 if they have "Nationstates" in their motto.

#375: Keep Your Hands Off Those Lucky Charms! [Vile Island; ed: Sanctaria]
Full Issue Text

Nations have a chance to receive this easter egg during the month of March. Having "Gold" or "Golden" in your currency or "Lucky" in your motto may also be a requirement.

#408: Pony Peril [Sedgelight Sparkle; ed:Sedgistan]
Full Issue Text

#408 has an interesting story behind its validity. Currently, nations become eligible to receive it when they have "friendship" included in their motto.

#430: Please, Sir, We Want Some More Issues [Eta Carinae; ed: Luna Amore]
Full Issue Text

It is believed that the requirement for #430 is to have answered 250 or 300 issues and having your issue speed set to "No throttle."

#471: Red Sleigh Down [Nation of Quebec; ed: Sanctaria]
Full Issue Text

Nations become eligible to receive #471 during the month of December and when they have Christmas-related words in their pretitle or other customizable fields.

#622: A Holiday Masquerade [The Grim Reaper; ed:Lenyo]
Full Issue Text

Nations become eligible to receive #622 when their national animal is set to anything that contains any of several Halloween-themed creatures, such as monster, bat, vampire, zombie, or ghost. Creatures like wombat also work as it contains 'bat' within it.

#1122: Just Say No to E [Zwangzug; ed: Zwangzug]
Full Issue Text

Nations become eligible for #1222 when none of their customizable fields contain the letter 'e'.

I’m temporarily using “Nationstates” as the motto, now I’m eligible to get #266. All I have to do is play the waiting game until I get it and solve it, then I’ll revert to my OG motto, “We Will Endure”.

Easter eggs

Postby Soviet Watermelon » Sun Sep 13, 2020 12:37 am

Is it possible to be eligible for more than one Easter egg at a time.
Like if you had "Monster" as your animal and "Holy" and "Red" in your title.

Yes, it's 100% possible to qualify for multiple Easter Eggs at once — in fact, that's generally the trick to it, qualifying for as many as you can at once. However, you can't always qualify for ALL of them, both because of potential character limits with your custom fields and some contradictory requirements (mainly with "Say No to E").

you can't qualify for #408: Pony Peril or #266: Breaching the Great Fourth Wall of @@NAME@@ and #1122: Just Say No to E, since both 408, and 266 require you to put an E in your fields.

you can't qualify for #471: Red Sleigh Down and #375: Keep Your Hands Off Those Lucky Charms! at the same time, because they are seasonal Easter eggs.

but you can qualify for a maximum number of easters with this setting

in Motto : Moo, NationStates, friendship
in pre-title, any color + Holy
Cow Bat, or Bat as your animal.

Yup, although that should be "NationStates", and I think adding "zombie" in the pretitle might help too. :)

Has having Zombie in your pretitle been confirmed as triggering #223 (in absence of CTE-ing...)? I ask because I've been waiting for a while...:P

I'm mainly just going off the original post. I've never CTE'd myself and I've also been waiting a while with it in the pretitle, so I'm not sure. It can't hurt to have in there though.

I know this could be grave digger. but i came to make 3 reports about easters egg

First, yeah population is given and influence the numbers of easter eggs can find, but only #78: Should We Pull The Lever? seem to actually require a population of 1.250 billion to find it. Other egg requirement might be lower.
and the fact, I found #266: Breaching the Great Fourth Wall of @@NAME@@ on two Olympics puppets is proof there is no population requirement for it.

However, globally. nations that has higher population when they start hunting, find more easter eggs.

the guide still is not updated to say there is a link between Pizza and #80: Aliens Wish Peace/Trade Agreement, but yeah, there is a link.
I was finally able to find the issues on multiple nations, like Aurezluna, and Jhlasezluna, and everytime, the issues only appear when pizza industry is revived.

Also. its quite possible some nations will take 1 or 2 month to find 1. For exemple. Nearly, all my nations found #408: Pony Peril, except for Lhazafeizlhe, which took more then 2 months for it to finally show up.
