Re: How do you deal with spies?

once i defended with spies! i was playing the Europe scenario and expanded out of central Europe to Greece. I had built a railroad along the Adriatic Sea to feed my expansion along the Black Sea. Like you, I had pesky units (caravans) from other countries sitting on my railroad. So I built spies and...

Re: Generic build scripts

For anyone that is thinking about running FreeCiv-server on a Raspberry Pi, it's doable. However, please be patient with Cazfi's script. It will probably run up to two hours. I will buy a new memory card, and let this script download everything--I will time it and report back. Better late than neve...

Re: Nation Class

i agree with your thoughts, being a coder in my previous jobs. :geek: Also, I think it would be easier for non-technical folks to create new nations using objects, and changing only what is needed from the baseline. But I have never developed in C or one of its variants so I have no idea if the Free...

another type of relationship between two countries

In Freeciv we have the various types of independent or equal relationships between two countries: war, cease fire, armistice, peace, or alliance. But what about a "vassal state" type of relationship https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vassal_state . More common names are (according to wikipedia)...

Another form of government: oligarchy?

Listening to one of my favorite podcasts during my commute (Tides of History), the author mentions the form of government for the northern Italian cities just before the Black Plague arrives, as being a oligarchies, where each city is dominated by several families. The cities he mentioned were Flore...

Re: Generic build scripts

I have no idea how long the end of turn processing will take once I am in about 100 turns or 200 turns. So, I am about 100 turns in, playing the Europe scenario with 10 AI and 2 players. The end of turn processing is taking about 25 to 30 seconds after the game save and before the units start movin...

Re: Generic build scripts

Cazfi, I think your mint script works fine on a Raspberry Pi using Raspian as the OS. As I mentioned earlier, I manually installed each package that was listed in your mint script--it helped me learn Linux. Then I ran the script and once I got the parameters input correctly, the script did what it w...

Re: Generic build scripts

for all the Linux newbs like me, once you download the .sh file (it's like a .bat file in windows), there's one extra step that you have to do--you have to mark the .sh file as executable. Simply right click on the file and select properties. Click on the permissions tab, and set the entry for Execu...
