Re: Mac installers now available

Confirmed there was a problem with libvorbis 1.3.5_1 vs 1.3.6. New fixed versions of the installers put onto Dropbox -

Re: wild animal killing bonus

Tried the Barbarian Leader flag - it sort of works, but there are problems in addition to the amount being the same as a barbarian leader. The message shown says "Barbarian leader killed" and i don't think that can be changed. And it doesn't work for animals on ocean tiles (like my Kraken)...

wild animal killing bonus

I'm playing with the new wild animal feature in my 2.6 ruleset ( see this thread - http://forum.freeciv.org/f/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=705 ) To balance the bad effects with something good, I'd like to have killing an animal give a bonus, like when you kill a barbarian leader. But I can't figure out ...

Re: Mac installers now available

I have now confirmed that the installer over-writes things when installing over a previous installation, as I hoped it would. So if you're re-installing, disregard my previous comments about deleting things. Newest version of the 2.6.0b2 install now also includes a bonus option of a new ruleset I've...

Re: Single city challenge

The number of trade routes is controlled by the ruleset. One of them starts with a limit of 2 and increases it as various things happen.

Re: MacOSX Playing Error? [Sierra 10.12.6]

Arg - why does this have to be so difficult. Turns out the problem is that one of the pieces in the filename path is a symlink (alias) to another directory, and when it's copied to another machine it stops working. Why? I don't know, maybe some Unix expert can explain it. But I figured out a workaro...

Re: Art wanted for showcasing game engine features (2.6+)

Barbarian animals on water tiles work OK, I just tested. They killed a trireme and an explorer on a coastal tile.

set human name and nation automatically

I always play with the same nation and leader name, and I'd like that to be automatic. As discussed on another thread - http://forum.freeciv.org/f/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=90120&p=98493#p98493 - that is not currently possible via scripting or server commands. I think the ideal way to implement i...

Re: how to set human name and nation automatically

After digging some more I have to agree it is not currently possible to do this. Since I'm not the only one interested, I'll post a request on the Wishlist section.

Re: Art wanted for showcasing game engine features (2.6+)

For the storm I still don't get what it's supposed to be: Are Barbarian animals on water tiles actually supported? If that's the case, why not grab one of the many squids on Wikimedia Commons? My ruleset already has cryptography as tech, adding a giant squid would fit: I would love to have a giant ...
