Re: [RANT] MP* rulesets are BORING!

The early phase of all civ2-based rulesets is amazing for being a "different game within a game". No decisions you make at any time of the game have as much impact and importance as now. There is a huge amount of raw flexibility in what you do and there is wet clay to shape however you wan...

Re: Discuss, please: Delayed GoTo and Real Turn-Based Game

1. Looting - The proposal of Corbeau has these benefits: the amount looted will more accurately reflect the wealth of the nation being looted. I personally like it. But as someone who has worked on a ruleset team for almost 2 years, and a server operator trying to get improvements done, I can tell y...

Re: Discuss, please: Delayed GoTo and Real Turn-Based Game

Corbeau -- regarding pulling "forward" or "backward", I don't think you see clearly which direction I'm pulling. If you know what's involved in the project, then however you look at it, it's a greater probability that this entire topic will be like so many others, fading into not...

Re: [RANT] MP* rulesets are BORING!

I think you just don't appreciate it's another game-within-a-game in this early stage. It is one of the most interesting phases of the game for me and there is a lot to do in the early game. It's the Dawn of Time and the decisions you make now will set the historical course of your whole civilisatio...

Re: NOTIFY players of a new turn ? (mail/anything ?)

There is something in there, wake from sleep sound. You can set it to play the sound when a special string is seen to come.

Re: Tech upkeep based on population (Settled Area)

The setting is really more relevant for MP games anyway. (Upkeep is used to moderate the dynamics for excessive tech proliferation.) It would be easy to do and I hope someone does it. I can argue that basing it on "total city size" is better than settled area. Settled area has some weird n...

Re: Discuss, please: Delayed GoTo and Real Turn-Based Game

Let's admit the current situation has real problems, especially for longturn. I was a proponent of something similar to all the above, because all the problems are real. But the more I talked with people and saw the side effects, I became frustrated, because I don't want to give up on solving this p...

Re: 2.4.3 specialist

For big cities, opening the Cities screen (F4 in the gtk client) is probably more sensible anyhow. Apart from that, I believe it's not that difficult to tell the different specialists apart: the scientists are wearing lab coats, the entertainers have one hand raised, and anyone who's neither of the...

Re: Freeciv Longturn Web - The gossip section

If anyone was wondering, the above proves the case of anti-FCW political psy-ops and slanderous propaganda that can result in a ban. Look carefully where he admits some things then later denies his own admissions. Don't trust a single thing this guy says. But why would he lie? It's like I said befor...
