Re: The Black Book of Deceit (or: Fool me once...)

I would like to ask, so there is no subterfuge in games with humans? I understand outright lying being objectionable, but someone stalling for a few desperate turns while they try and finish off the walls that will keep their city safe, the enemy ready to pounce at a moment's notice? That sounds lik...

Re: Longturn Diplomacy

I pulled "one message a day" out of thin air. I didn't know if there was some kind of limitation placed on in- game communication, or if it was effectively unlimited. When I used the "Nations" tab's "Send Message" it didn't look to me like the message was sent immediate...

Re: Longturn Diplomacy

Thank you both, this has been exceptionally helpful. Hopefully war will be averted. :D On another note, how do you communicate with other players? This is all probably terribly basic, but I want to make sure I don't miss anything. From what I've gathered so far, if one of my units or one of someone ...

Longturn Diplomacy

Never having played against a human opponent before, never mind a couple dozen of them, I could use some help. I think I might be doing something terribly wrong and I don't want to get into a war over a mistake that could have been avoided. Everyone who has contacted me in Longturn Game 5 has declar...

Re: LongTurn Game 5 for Freeciv-web

OK, I think I have a handle on the difference between the two, thanks! But, why is there such a thing as unit wait time? Why not let a player make all their moves as soon as the new turn starts? It's so that you can't make a bunch of moves right before the turn ends and then immediately again after...

This is my first long turn game, and first game with other humans. I'm sure there are a lot of things I'm...

Re: LongTurn Game 5 for Freeciv-web

What is the countdown timer I see over the "End Turn" button? How does that relate to the unit wait time?

Re: Can't assemble spaceship on my own

Since I only play computer opponents at the moment this isn't too vital. To be honest, I don't know how often a space race happens or how vital assembling the ship really is, so to me, this feature isn't all that important. I might sing a different tune if I end up losing space races to humans, thou...

Re: Double digit Shield production not displayed

I think I may have misunderstood how things work... I was under the impression that the little F/S/T tag under the cities and on the land tiles told you how much of each resource the tile was producing. However, am I correct in thinking this is "raw" value only -- not including any bonuses...

Can't assemble spaceship on my own

Hi, I've seen elsewhere (on this forum, I think) that you can actually build the spaceship, visually. When I click on the "Spaceship" tab of the Government page all I see are the ship vitals. I don't see any visual representation of the spaceship and I don't have any way of assigning the s...
