[SOLVED] Ability to choose if my Vacation Mode auto-skips turns or not in matches with turn-timer

As a player in a holiday, I want to be able to set Vacation Mode ON, while choosing if my turns in matches with turn-timer should be auto-skipped (as it is now) or not.

  • I would like to use Vacation Mode because it makes it very clear to the other players that I am not able to play my turns at the normal frequency.

  • But I never put it on because it would make me skip turns on matches with a turn-timer.

My preference would be for Vacation Mode not to auto-skip those turns

  • but maybe other people prefer to have their turns auto-skipped
  • so it would be best for the player to choose if his Vacation Mode auto-skips or not

This could go very well hand-in-hand with Ability to “Disable turn-timer for players on Vacation Mode”

  • because that other option is for hosts which don’t want the players to feel pressure during their holidays

I’m not sure we want this to be a user option instead of a game option, I’ve made the changes for the game and we can revisit this if necessary.

The solution you’ve just implemented is very good. Thank you!

All that remains to see is if hosts will be nice enough to NOT select “Turn is skipped immediately” :smiley:

Turn is skipped immediately - If the player is in vacation mode?

Yes, when that option is selected, the player in vacation mode is skipped right away.

Option 2 should be renamed to
Turn is skipped immediately while players are on vacation

Option 3 should say instead of users

Also to give a note on the skipping options.
If the turn timer is turned on during a game when a player's turn time is greater than the set turn timer. The turn will be skipped immediately.

If you agree, should this thread have [SOLVED] removed so that it rejoins a development queue?

I am happy with how it is right now.
I suggest creating a new ticket for any text change request, rather than reopening this one.

I will create a new ticket. I am only suggesting clarity with text changes or adding a description.
