Gift gold undo idea: 2021-01-07 16:05:08

Level 61
I think the "gift gold" mod needs an undo button or an option to send the gold as a normal order (like attacking, done only after everyone commits, which would allow people to rethink the turn).

This would be very useful for commerce diplo games, where some people get bullied into gifting gold and then regret it when the situation turns around. I am used to stalling the game when I need to negotiate, and since the gold is sent instantaneously I can't make others change their mind mid-turn, because they are already committed to their previous plans.

And yes, you could technically argue that I should have acted quicker, but it's just overall inconsistent with how the rest of the game behaves. What if I am offline for a day and then on day 2 everything is already decided?? It feels like you couldn't change orders after committing even though others didn't and the time didn't run out yet. Once you gift the gold, you have to stick to your plan and your regular orders too...

Always hated that about that mod. If I get time (probably Feb-Mar timeline, Jan will be busy for me), I'll write a v2 of the mod so gold gifting becomes a move during the following turn. Everything in the game is a move within a turn except that, and it's jarring. No doubt everyone who uses that mod for the first time does it expecting it to appear in the move list on the right and is shocked when the gold just instantly vanishes.
