Re: Fuel for submarines in LT50

We have been playing with submarines using fuel on LT50 (2.5 game) for some time now and it looks like this stuff is working almost perfectly or perfectly. I haven't seen a single real issue with the subs. The only issues have been few times with slow goto (1-2 sec delay) and the need to control the...

Shotturn games now available at longturn.net

We now has the option for running practice games with other people. You can also play competitively if you want. This is for Freeciv 2.5 and it's not yet reported to metaserver. Not yet for technical reasons. You need a Freeciv 2.5 native client for playing the game. It's possible to choose almost a...

Discord invites for those who play multiplayer

Re: [RANT] MP* rulesets are BORING!

With the upcoming LT52 there is a great opportunity to play a game where the ancient times don't consume up to 60% of the game while leaving only maybe 10-20% to the middle ages and 20-30% for the rest of the game. The LT52 setup will bring new hope to players who want to enjoy actual playing instea...

Re: freeciv-score.log

I don't know where but somewhere here may be such a thing.

There are visualizations of the old longturn.net games. I have no idea how to turn that stuff back on.

Re: Fuel for submarines in LT50

Yes 2.6 is under construction. We have this Op-42 working group Lexxie invented and the latest events have been posted there. And not much has happened lately. I'm planning to have a look at it "soon" but no idea how soon that will be. Preferably sooner than later. I can now compare the ol...

Re: Fuel for submarines in LT50

Yes, still running 2.5. Currently it seems that there are no real issues with subs using fuel. There has been multiple cases where people reported that there is some lag with moving a sub and I can confirm that. It's nothing that would really affect the gameplay. Maybe a 1-2 second lag for sub gotos...

Fuel for submarines in LT50

We now have fuel for sumbarines and nuclear submarines in LT50. The idea was to make subs more dependent from the bases and make the distant colonies more interesting and something you need to have if you want to have the underwater beasts lurking around the enemy coasts. The docs however say that t...

Re: LT50 has started, free spots available

It's now T5 on LT50. We are starting to run low on idler spots but some are still available :) LT50 is a nice game and it's easy to catch up even if you start late. We have the best currently running multiplayer game available. 23h turns and no exploits like tech trading and too easy free techs. The...
