Proposal of 42 Quality of Life Improvements for eRepublik by zzzingo.


This article is a part of the Plato's Foundation writing contest in category [Game proposal]. All articles in the competition can be found here.


Greetings everyone. First of all, I would like to clarify what I mean by quality of life improvements. These are smaller changes that won't have much impact on the gameplay, but more about making it a bit more enjoyable. All of these changes shouldn't require too much recourses to implement either, so I hope that eRep Labs can get some inspiration from my article. Some ideas are mine while others have been found on other places. Anyways, let's head to my list.


General

1: List of all donations you have sent and received during the past days.

2: Increase the duration of lower quality weapons. They would be a lot more useful, although they would still deal much less damage. Increase the efficience of q1 air weapon as well.

3: Remove the sale on training ground. Instead, the price on upgrades should be reduced by 25-50 %. Also, make training contracts purchasable every day.

4: Let us donate houses.

5: New overlay on the map: Alliances.

6: Allow us to also find dead citizens while searching for citizens in the search citizens bar at the top of the page.

7: Let us preview the new players message before proposing it.

8: Allow us to edit comments/posts in feeds or articles within a few minutes after posting it.

9: Allow us to filter out medal notifications in the friends feed, also posts about guerilla fights.

10: Improve the email notifications feature. For example, give us the option to get a email when someone has proposed my country as NE- or AS target, or if a MTO is about to start.

11: Make it possible to partially use food units, just like weapons.

12: Remove the 25 comments missions, replace them with a mission where you need to get a total of 100 votes on your articles.

13: Rework the media mogul medal. Either decrease the number of subscribers for the first medal or just award it after x amount of votes and/or endorsements.

14: Reduce frequency of captchas depending on the age of the citizen or number of solved captchas.

15: Add a new shortcut (maybe shift+h) to allow us to quickly move home to our residence, but make some sort of pop up window that ask us we really want to move of course.

16: Make the weekly challenge start on Mondays, because logic...

Politics

17: The political titles should grant some abilities, for example: MoFa should be able to propose MPPs, MoD airstrikes and MoE new citizen message. Prime ministers should have all of these abilities.

18: New political title: Advisor, which could be applied to several people at the same time, but not have any real effect.

19: Give the congress the ability to have different tax values on WAM, usual work tax, CO and medals.

20: Let the CP-candidates propose a government before the CP-election, that will be displayed when we vote.

21: Allow Party Presidents and spokesmen to publish articles in the name of their party.

Military

22: Give commanders the option to let their 2nd Commanders set CO.

23: Give us the option to limit how much CO each soldier can get as maximum.

24: Reduce number of regions in some countries, some examples are USA, France and China. (Yup, very controversial)

25: Implement a new feature that allow the government to choose a battle of their allies that their citizens will be able to fight in without moving, even if they aren’t deployed. It could last for 30 minutes and have a cooldown of 20 hours.

26: Let us to do something useful with bazookas. Why not let us scrap them and turn them into rockets or something.

Social

27: Articles that are more than 3 days old should never show up in the new media section.

28: Agreement between two countries to allow their citizen to publish articles for free in their respective countries, it could cost a very small amount of money.

30: Increase maximum number of people in a PM-conversation to 50. It would allow the entire congress and government to fit in a single group.

31: Ability to add/remove people from PM-groups. It should also be possible to leave the group easily.

32: Increase character limit when posting in the feeds to either 200 or 250. 160 is a bit low, especially if you want to post a link.

33: Make it possible to share posts in the friends feed. (reshout/quote function)

34: A more powerful media module: Possibility to save several drafts, scheduling automatic publishing of an article at a certain time and more editing tools.

35: Give us the option to endorse bigger amounts of money, for example 300 cc.

36: Display active work streak on the profile page if the person have 365 days or more.

Small countries Quality of Life (QoL)

37: The congress should have the ability to reduce the number of congress seats in its country, maybe it should require a referendum as well?

38: MPP-cost should be a bit different, depending on the size of the countries.

39: Allow two countries to merge and create “Federation of “x” and “y””. The federation would work like a normal country, but it must be easy to end it somehow. It would probably be a good idea to give federations one disadvantage, maybe it should cost 30 % of its tax incomes?

3 much more controversial ideas (and not really QoL fixes)

40: Only allow us to set CO for citizens in our own country.

41: Remove True Patriot medal.

42: Reintroduce daily maximum of posts in the friends feed (sorry Jimkats and co).
