Duck Republic, it's alliance choosing time. Pick any of the proposals below, or decline completely. :)

Customized Alliance System

As democratically approved by the Lemon Kingdom citrizenry, and by the powers vested in me, I, Potato, 8th Lemon King of the Lemon Kingdom, founder of the 3rd Dynasty, hereby approve of the Customized Alliance System to replace our Ancient Law of Neutrality. This also acts as a means of other factions/kingdoms to interact with the Zesty Realm in their own terms, and vice versa.

They will get to choose what they want to happen, and the Lemon Kingdom can do the same. A win-win scenario.

Terminologies:

Acceptor: The faction receiving the Alliance proposal
Provider: The faction providing the Alliance proposal

Overview:


The Acceptor can choose between any one of the proposals below, each in a numbered list. Once the proposals have been chosen, the Provider will choose the same number of proposals, with the roles changing from Provider to Acceptor and the Acceptor to Provider. Both parties may choose different proposals to match the other party.


Additionally, the Acceptor or the Provider may change any part of the proposal before agreeing to better suit their needs.

Available Alliance Proposals (As of 2018/09/03):

Military:
  1. The Provider will provide military aid. This alliance proposal is only valid if the Acceptor agrees to the following:
    • The Acceptor cannot start a war and is not currently engaged in a war.
    • The Acceptor cannot provoke another faction into entering a war with them.
    • The Acceptor can only start a war if only to stop a preemptive attack against the Acceptor. This must have concrete evidence, lest the proposal become invalid.

    Any violation of the agreements above will invalidate the Military Alliance immediately.​

    Terms of Military Aid:
    Military Aid may come in the form, but not limited to the following:
    • Expedient deployment of the Provider's available forces
    • Emergency Supply Drops in the Acceptor's place of choosing
    • Tech Snapshots from the Provider to provide new Techs for the Acceptor to assemble
    • Military Bases and strategic assets established onto the Acceptor's place of choosing. The faction that wishes to build said base must pay for whatever labor and construction involved, plus taxes (if any)
    • Military Exercises (Multiplayer Battles) to train both parties' forces and improve existing strategies and tactics.
    Economic:
  1. The Provider will establish a Trade Route with the Acceptor. The Acceptor may provide any specifications such as preferred resource type, amount, schedule and trade route.
Technological
  1. The Provider will create a Tech Snapshot for the Acceptor. The Acceptor may specify the type of Tech to build. If a Provider has a company operating within its territory, it may transfer its construction if available.
  2. The Provider and Acceptor can create an inter-faction Tech (e.g. Duck-Lemon Spacecraft, SFS-Lemon Tank, etc.). Factions involved in its construction can share the Snapshots to their benefit.
Diplomatic
  1. The Provider and Acceptor will build embassies on each other's territory. This is to provide their respective citizenry formal access to either faction's territory and also to provide a direct line of communications from the faction owning said embassy.

Citizens of the Duck Republic, it is time to discuss this alliance and what we should do.

Post your thoughts below.

Considering we already had a celestite trade deal established I suppose it would make sense to choose an Economic alliance. Also it would be fun to have embassies too so maybe a Diplomatic alliance too? Diplomacy never hurt,,,

Lemons, I salute thee!

We can still have multiplayer battles for fun, right?

Agreed. Then the Lemon Kingdom will agree to pick the same terms as above for the sake of simplicity.

For the Economic trade, should we go for the same agreement as before? 80 Celestite in exchange for land and harvesting rights in said land, or are you planning a new one?

Yes, it won't be written as Military-related, just good ol' fun. :)

A replacement for the very old Nimbus destroyer.

NIMBUS MKII
Nimbus MKII.png
It is currently our fastest airship, cruising at a stable 105mph. It is also very agile, with a full range of movement both vertically and horizontally. Holding space will move the ship downwards and will tilt it downwards when in motion. It isn't very floaty, so take care or you will crash very hard into the ground.
Designed for scouting or as an escort/support unit.

We have some new techs.

SPEAR
Spear.png
The Spear is a new high-speed fighter, tuned for air-to-air combat. It can reach 137mph and is very agile, much better than our other fighter the Thunderbird. However, due to its very light weaponry, it will not replace the Thunderbird, but will instead operate alongside it.

We have also completed work on an aerial carrier.

LONGBOW
Longbow.png
The Longbow is capable of carrying, deploying and supporting 2 Spears. It only has light weaponry to protect itself against fighters, so it will act as a support unit, charging other aircraft and acting as a mobile AA platform. Please refer to the video below on how to attach the Spears securely.
The Longbow will slowly lose altitude when carrying Spears.

We have developed a new assault artillery airship.

WOLFSBANE
Wolfsbane.png
It is designed as an extremely long range artillery, able to reach much further than visual range, so it would work best in conjunction with a spotter. It has a good turning speed and has full control over its altitude, making aiming easy. However, it only has a few missile turrets to deal with enemies at close range, so it works best behind the front lines, preferably with a fighter squadron or a small fleet for defence.

Special notes:
To fire cannons, TAP space. To decrease altitude, HOLD space.

Courtesy of AstralAviansInc. new Duck Repubic tech has been developed: VTO (Vertical Take Off) rigs! I have retrofitted the Spear to include this piece of kit.
< (Snapshot)

Lore:


AstralAviansInc had been recently testing out the Spear, but instead of properly doing science, they added an unholy detachable rig onto its rear that allows it to take off vertically. Probably inspired by his own VTO craft The Fireball (so called because it ignited on its first field test... and survived) chief engineer Astra is to blame for the invention. VTO rigs are an attachment typically strapped on in the workshop, after which the plane is taxied to launch position, rolled onto its rear (a manoeuvre typically generating about 4 Gs) and takes off. The rig then is dropped and disintegrates it falls back to earth, ready to be recycled and reused.

Practicals:

VTO rigs allow otherwise normal planes to take off much quicker and without a runway, which might be useful where space is limited such as on top of a monument or in a busy airfield on a floating HAVCS base or aircraft carrier. The rig itself is very cheap, very simple and mostly reusable with only the exploding bolt consistently getting destroyed. It can even be removed without taking off to simply prop up the plane and then be reused immediately.
