Re: Ai, Ai, Ai!

AI 1. civ1 & civ2 AI settlers. This one is an egregious oversight. These two rulesets do not have workers, migrants, or worker like engineers. Somewhere along the line, the AI forgot that settlers too can do gardening. But in civ1 and civ2 they are the ONLY gardeners, and so, as a result, the AI...

Re: Ai, Ai, Ai!

A. I don't actually remember seeing any documentation on the land bombardment rule and I am not aware of any way to defeat it (other than not use FP > 1), hence my comment 'hardcoded'. B. Conversely, I believe the pearl harbour rule is (now???) softcoded as a unit flag "BadCityDefender" an...

Ai, Ai, Ai!

I was planning to just batch these up and report then under RIP but the list was getting long and I wanted to start the reports, so I am starting this new topic for AI, auto_*, and AGH. Many of these will be chronic - perhaps most. AI 0. Fearless. I originally reported this elsewhere but left out so...

Re: R.I.P Not responding.

41. Some problems with startup error messages: a. If "rmact_gfx = " is missing the start up error message reports that the tags "-" are wrong: Tileset problem, it's probably incompatible with the ruleset: Missing Hydro removal activity sprite for tags "-" and alternativ...

Re: Correct the rulesets civ1 and civ2

Misc. wiki states: Great Library obsolete by University (TWICE)!!! If so, in section [building_great_library] replace obsolete_by = { "type", "name", "range", "survives" "Tech", "Electronics", "World", TRUE } by obsolete_by = { &q...

Re: Correct the rulesets civ1 and civ2

Factories: According to the wiki one does not need a factory to build a manufacturing plant. And there appears to be agreement (with the rule itself) that the mfg plant makes the factory REDUNDANT. Delete the following predicate from [building_mfg_plant] "Building", "Factory", &q...

Re: Correct the rulesets civ1 and civ2

For this week I decided to adopt some advice from the original post by sveinung and do some comparisons between the civ1 ruleset and the wiki. What actually prompted this was the observation that in civ1 the calvary (= horsemen) was made obsolete by musketeers. This did not seem right. One would hav...

Re: R.I.P Not responding.

40. Disasters. The presence of buildings as predicates in [disaster_*] rules are assessed perversely when displaying buildings as being redundant. E.g with the great wall, city walls are deemed redundant if the city is on/near a river, but NOT otherwise . I believe the distinction is because of the ...

Re: Enemy units not disbanding in peace

You might want to clarify the actual events. The auto disbanding process is event related not status related. That is, units are disbanded only if they are in foreign territory at the time of transition from Armistice to Peace. If the territory grows during peace time and engulfs a unit then it surv...

Re: R.I.P Not responding.

39. More documentation problems in terrain.ruleset: a. ; graphic = tag specifying preferred graphic NQR: "None" is also valid. Should have additional cooment: ; This can be "None" to indicate that a graphic ; is not needed. b. [terrain_*] ; #_time = time for # activity; if 0, can...
