Re: LongTurn game 6 for Freeciv-web

I agree that tech trading benefits large alliances over small alliances or individual nations, but that's how real life works too. With tech trading disabled, if you get behind in tech, you can likely never catch up. With tech trading enabled, if you or your alliance get behind on tech, there are mu...

Re: World Peace Victory Scenario

By default, allied victory is enabled, which is exactly what you describe. I'd assume that typically it doesn't work by having all players ally, but by having one alliance wipe out everyone else. In general, you can check if allied victory is enabled by typing /help alliedvictory (Freeciv 2.5 and l...

World Peace Victory Scenario

Is there a way to have multiple people win, if every remaining player has an alliance with every other remaining player? It'd probably be the hardest possible way to win a game. Otherwise, it'd be funny to see a game just go on in perpetuity with no winner.

I hope this isn't going to be the new standard. Tech trading is an integral part of diplomacy.

Re: LongTurn game 6 for Freeciv-web

My island is so small, I don't have room to settle all of my settlers. Now the question is, do I have my spare settler join an existing city, or do I rush to make a boat and find an island that doesn't have a player on it yet?

Re: The Black Book of Deceit (or: Fool me once...)

It'll be interesting to see how the reputation players earn from these types of tricks will carry forward from one game to another.

Re: Longturn in August

I went on vacation for a week at the end of June, it was easy enough to play on my iPad or my phone (if I really had to.)

Re: Discussion about the format of the longturn game

What I would like to have is more oceans, separated continents and actually some reason to use boats. With >50% land there is no need whatsoever to use navy and this aspect of the game is completely neglected. This isn't quite true. In single player games, I've found the need to use boats when ther...

Load and Unload Boats

Sorry if this has been brought up before, I did a quick search and didn't see anything, but very likely I could have missed it. It would be great to have an easier way to load and unload boats. I seem to remember in Civilization II or III (the last one I played) that if you had units sentry in a coa...

Re: Discussion about the format of the longturn game

This is the settings file for the next LongTurn game . I'm updating it based on feedback. I probably won't play another game with tradingtech disabled. I was surprised by that in game 5 and think it makes alliances almost valueless. Now, I'm not a quitter, so I'm going to stick it out in game 5, bu...
