Players are already using fam forums to request aid, which makes sense. This is a good example of something that should be a game feature instead.
a “Request Aid” button present in various places
- the hq page
- the council page
- the family page
- a new navbar item?
- empire pages of family members
- next to any cost calculator
button goes to new page with a form
- if from cost calculator, values are pre-filled
- can only request from family, not specific empires
aid request is created, and has its own page and history
aid request shows in personal news and family news
fulfilling aid requests
a single click to send up to the entire outstanding amount, or as much as able
a second option is available to send a partial fulfillment
if more is sent than the outstanding amount, reduce package to match the request
any aid shipment is logged in personal news for sender/receiver as well as fam news
if the entire request amount is filled, the request is closed and can no longer be contributed to
if the entire request amount is filled, log in receiver’s personal news and fam news
