Can a mistaken post be deleted?

Is there any way to delete a post that was made in error to the wrong thread? Specifically the last post to this thread -

http://forum.freeciv.org/f/viewtopic.php?f=4&p=99136#p99136

Same post also appears in the correct thread. Not a big deal, just an annoyance.

Re: mixing ruleset features? (specifically: civ2civ3 with variable city radius)

Animal sprites are a problem for custom rulesets, the files that control them are not in the same directory as the custom ruleset stuff. Which is why I forgot to include them earlier. (I'm using amplio2, hope you are also.) You need a new "amplio2.tilespec" in the directory ".../share...

Re: Question: Fort changes tile ownership

Could be that the code is treating the value as unsigned, which makes it effectively 255. I heard that something similar was responsible for Ghandi becoming so murderous. Maybe try 0?

Re: wild animals disappear

Not sure I fully understand how ranges work, but I believe you. Tested

Code: Select all

"Nation", "Animal Kingdom", "Player", FALSE
and it appears to work OK. Thanks.

Re: wild animals disappear

It doesn't like range "Local". Have now verified what works is

Code: Select all

 "Nation", "Animal Kingdom", "World", FALSE

Lua scripts - unit's veteran level

You can assign a unit's veteran_level when creating a unit with edit.create_unit(), but there's no way to find out a unit's veteran_level or changing it. There should be a "unit.veteran_level" & "edit.unit_veteran_level()".

wild animals disappear

I'm playing with the new wild animal feature and found they all disappear pretty quickly after the game starts. Not what I want, and I expect most folks would agree they should stick around until they're killed, since, unlike human pirates and barbarians, animals can survive and reproduce in their n...

Re: mixing ruleset features? (specifically: civ2civ3 with variable city radius)

I have been working on a custom ruleset based mostly on the experimental ruleset with some things from the civ2civ3 ruleset, including the variable city radius and new unit class "Big Land". Also has wild animals, plague, disasters, culture victory and my own tweaks. It's still a work in p...

save the help window size

When you re-size the city display screen, the GUI remembers the new size and re-uses it when you re-open it. I'd like the help browser window to do the same.
