Re: Ai Tax Rates and Despotism

With default rules, Hard and Cheating AI levels are allowed to bypass the max tax rates. You may try to use Normal level for some AIs.
The other option is to modify the file ai_effects.ruleset.

Re: Culture? Acts?

Culture and achievements were recently added to civ2civ3 too. For now, they are only a demographic statistic, but the plan is to use the culture to increase the defense against diplomatic attacks (incite, bribe, civil war...).

Re: 2.6 datafile formats

Thank you, JTN.
I was trying to implement it in a way that it does not require new art, by using the same icon of standard palace, and preventing from building both palaces in same city, but I need to test it a bit more, now I know I'm in time.

Re: 2.6 datafile formats

I was working on a patch for civ2civ3 ruleset that allows the construction of a 2nd palace (similar to forbidden palace in civ3), by using the new effect Gov_Center. It requires the creation of a new building. If 2.6 dafile formats are frozen, does it mean that such change should wait until 3.0? I g...

Re: AI has many problems and needs to be improved

This change means all players are affected equally including human. Using the numbers in your example, do you find all games eventually end up you vs all AIs, with no chance of ever getting a cease fire with any of them? Your are right, it happens as you describe. I personally like it because you a...

Re: Display real attack/defense values on middle click?

This is the info that I miss most in the UI. Well, the actual defense value depends on attacker too (pikemen gets double defense against horse-units etc.) It could be implemented similar to the "chance to win". Middle-click could show the real attack/defense of the clicked unit against the...

Re: Changes in what a 2.6 rule set can do

Is it possible to allow units to survive after they perform an action? For example diplomats that survive when they "Investigate City".

Re: AI has many problems and needs to be improved

In my opinion, the main problem of the AI is that they waste most of their resources trying to kill each other. I mean, the AI is not that bad when there is peace, but once they start a war, they stop developing their cities, and they only build military buildings and units. The problem is that they...

Re: AmplioHexBig 2.5

And I made a quick oil rig for oceanic terrain. Mostly just giving the oil derrick a platform. Oh, thank you for that. That was bugging me about 2.6 (where civ2civ3 will support ocean "mines"). The ruleset has to make them separate extra, though, for them to have different gfx. That's not...

Re: "Love system"

I agree what you say about AI love. Another limitation of "Gain_AI_Love" is that it depends a lot on the number of players. The same amout of AI_Love that creates a peaceful game with few players, could result in constant wars when there are many players, so it is hard to balance in the ru...
