Re: Correct the rulesets civ1 and civ2

(oh, that's effectively exactly equal to what you wrote). Six of one and half a dozen of the other. I wrote it that way because of the way it can be compared to the others: A. max(abs(dx), abs(dy)) + min(abs(dx), abs(dy)) * 1 (Manhatten) (aka abs(dx) +abs(dy)) B. max(abs(dx), abs(dy)) + min(abs(dx)...

Re: Correct the rulesets civ1 and civ2

In Civ I the palace is much like any other improvement with some exceptions: A. Only one at a time (per player). If you build a duplicate the other is lost (no sales revenue I believe) B. With civil war both players get a free replacement. C. No civil war -> NO free replacement. According to 'Rome' ...

Re: Personality type and ruleset preference

There is a certain irony in my association with the freeciv project. I had an el cheapo laptop that had a tiny SSD. To upgrade windows I needed an external drive. As it happened I discovered PortableApps which would let me place some apps on a USB drive, and I spied fc. My initial interest was to tr...

Re: new rulesets offerred

An argument could be made that a Canal should give a trade bonus like a River does, but I did not do that because then you could add a Canal to tiles worked by a city just to get that trade bonus, which seems wrong. In Civ I, you only get the trade bonus once for road and/or river. You could add ca...

Re: Making Barbarians nations appear only a specific tech discovery

Another issue with barbarians is lack of sea unit flag, which guarantee spawning such unit if certain tech level i achieved by any player. Such flag exists for land units, but not sea ones. What flag are you referring to? What appears to be missing is a distinction between "BarabarianBoat"...

Re: Making Barbarians nations appear only a specific tech discovery

Only one nation can be land barbarians or sea barbarians at time. Their appearing mechanism is hardcoded but it's possible to set barbarian rate to "only from huts" and produce them by scripting engine. The barb nations actually persist for some substantial period of time after the "...

Re: Cruise missiles and Bombers

Also note : Other thing that should take note is that US Air force attack countries such as Iraq, Afghanistan that at the other side of the world far from the US. These attacks are done from local bases. The B52 has 'only' a range of 7,210 km which is barely 1/3rd the way to the "other side of ...

Re: Empire penalty

Please get rid of empire penalty, it does not make sense at all. There are big countries in the world such as USA, Brazil, Russia and others and protests usually happen for reasons unrelated to the size of the country. This is a FEATURE of the civ * genre (all fc rulesets that I know of AND Civ I)....

SP players too (well at least this one).
Maybe they could be calculated better by tge map generator.
Cetainly could be. Players using the civ1 ruleset may get some relief in a few weeks time.
