Re: Russian Civil War 1919

Hey, I've always dreamed of a more guided scenario while playing one. So when I heard from sveinung that events are supported I thought of this scenario since it is more something for a single player playing the biggest player the Soviet Union. I therefore could imagine windows poping up every turn ...

Re: City walls become obsolete!

Using the Maginot Line is a non-sequitor. That's a fortified trench-line, not an enclosed area like a city wall or fortress. True, I wanted to argue that the "most" technological fortification of that time was ineffective against modern warfare and if the Maginot-Line woudn't do it, what ...

Re: City walls upgrade

It is true, they give protection though depending much on the kind of fortification. Also, only because a modern unit call itself infantry, it doesnt mean it only uses rifles. Infantry can be equipped with mortars, flame throwers and have anti-tank-guns. Infantry played a big role in crushing the Ma...

Unit suggestions

Another unit suggestion: 1. Zeppelins: Although they were not much older than planes they properties differed for a few decades from airplanes. They could travel much longer and carry more weight before planes could do. Therefore I could imagine a unit that doesn't need refueling unlike a plane and ...

City walls upgrade

Playing freeciv I always had the problem of a too static game. At the beginning when city walls are not build the game is mobile and a frontal assault is often successfull, though not entirely cheap.

Change teams for a scenario via text editor

Hi, I've modified entirely the WW1 scenario and am trying to emulate the Great War. Unfortunately the Ai isn't really known for being a good role player as he withdraws vision to team mates and brokers a cease-fire as soon as he gets a chance to.
