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 ...

Re: Single city challenge

Finding a good spot for your one city is the first big task, I usually allow about a dozen turns before giving up. Need specials (esp trade), river is good, ocean for trade access is essential. Once I had an ocean that turned out to be a small land-locked sea, it had one land edge tile, one square w...

Re: MacOSX Playing Error? [Sierra 10.12.6]

This is weird - the "errno=20" means "Not a directory", well duh it's looking for a library, which is a file, not a directory. And it says it did find it! On my machine that library file is there and everything works. But that classic programmer line "it works for me" w...

how to set human name and nation automatically

Now that I've figured out how to get my custom ruleset working, there's another thing I'd like. I always play with the same nation and leader name, and I'd like that to happen when I select my ruleset. My attempt in script.lua is - function set_human_name() human = find.player(0) human.name = "...

Single city challenge

Does anyone besides me play single city challenge games? This was a popular thing back in the day of the original Civ 2. The challenge is to win at hard level while having only one city for the whole game. Obviously you go for a space win :-) (I once did destroy all enemy cities but it was pretty te...

Re: Diplomacy dlog - allow delete an item

Caedo - you are correct, who knew? Hate those secret features. Thanx for filing the tracker. Speaking as a former UI design engineer, it would be better to use the delete key instead of double-clicking, or have a "remove clause" button.

Re: MacOSX Playing Error? [Sierra 10.12.6]

Another fix was required, there are now new versions of the installers. You need to delete the folder
/usr/local/opt/ and re-run the new installer.
