Compulsory nudity

Postby Free Sirrai » Thu Dec 06, 2018 8:27 am

I saw that to get compulsory nudity law you have to get an issue from one of the 30 starter issues. I saw that nations only get those in the first couple of weeks. Is it possible to get the issue afterwards as well? Or is it only available to new nations?

You can get it later, as well.

My understanding is that those starter issues are more likely to come up when new, though later issues also get thrown into the mix. As you go, more (mostly) randomly-chosen issues are shown to you. Until you've cycled through the entire catalog of issues, and then the process starts over again.

The bit that I've put into red is incorrect. Issues can repeat before you've " cycled through the entire catalog"... and no single nation is likely to be eligible for every issue in the list, anyway.

I see, I didn't know that. Thanks for the info.

Do you mean that, even though you've not yet received all of the issues you are eligible for, you can start receiving repeat issues?

Or that, because it is highly unlikely to be eligible for every issue, you do begin to get repeat issues before cycling through the full list?

There are no longer any starter issues. That was changed long ago, and nations can now receive any issue (that they qualify for based on stats) within minutes of creation, not just the original 31.

Issues are completely randomly generated (with the exception of issues that you write -- which you get, regardless of eligibility the moment they're released -- and issues that chain on from a previous issue).

It's possible -- although not likely -- to receive an issue soon after you've had it before, especially if you are only eligible for a small pool of issues.

You don't work through them in rotation (all the issues you're eligible for and then starting again), because the list is always changing (with new ones -- some of which you are eligible for -- being added, and the issues you're eligible for potentially changing with each new issue you answer).

Good news, OP, is that two issues bring in compulsory nudity. #8 (Nudists Demand Time in Sun") and #823 ("Where the Sun Don't Shine"), so you have two chances to bring in this policy.
