Re: Playing as Barbarians in FreeCiv

A moment ago, I updated the "manual" mentioned by Ignatus: https://freeciv.fandom.com/wiki/Playing_as_barbarians With recent Freeciv, you don't need to edit the save file. I wrote the first revisions of this wiki page in 2010, when I edited a save file to take control of sea barbarians in ...

Re: AI has 100% tax and forgets science

I was playing Freeciv 2.5.6+, and don't know about changes coming in 2.6 or 3.0. I had some trouble with the rules in civ2civ3 for moving Big Land units, like Catapults and Cannons. These may not enter jungles, mountains, or swamps, unless there is a road. In 1971 CE (turn 396), I tried to attack th...

In my current game, I found the last Persian city and ended the Persians. I ended a few more civs. I passed the Aztecs in Land Area and Settled Area, so...

AI has 100% tax and forgets science

Freeciv's hard AI is dangerous in some games, but weak in some games. It was dangerous in my game of December 2015, classic rules. I was the Songhai. There were 4 hard AIs. I abandoned that game because I was losing cities to the AIs. Now the AI is weak in my game of April 2017, civ2civ3 rules. I am...
