Re: Installing FreeCiv from Linux repository

The packagers for various distros mostly go with the info about what's stable and what not, so the answer is "it's easy as pie"... for the stable version. Building the game for the first time is an uphill battle, but once you get all the dependencies, it's very easy. Admittedly, a bit of d...

Re: editing a save file

On Windows... Somewhat confusingly, to manage compressed files, you need to install an "archive manager" tool, such as winzip, winrar, peazip, 7-zip etc. All of these support reading a lot of formats, including these that freeciv uses (gz, bz2). Once you have one installed, right click the...

Re: Server load - difference between AIs and human players

Computers usually wait for human input, this game is no different. With player actions spread out in time and using "bio" processing, the load is spread in time and low. Running an AI requires resources, so that's one additional load. Furthermore, when AI plays, it blazes through its turn ...

Re: Dredger graphic

PT boat. Hopefully the water works - I tried to capture the two jets of spray from the bow and third in the middle. Might be too puny though...

Re: Dredger graphic

So, the Trident version. What would distinguish more? At the target scale it feels very different, but then again I zoom in about 800%. I guess the question is - who does use trident and how? Is it typically viewed at 1:1 scale on a full HD monitor? The problem I have is that a submarine is... a sub...

Re: Dredger graphic

Umm.. Does "shiny" mean the colors are off? That should be easy to improve. The unloaded version came rather cheap, since the containers are in their own layer. And here comes the missile sub... How does the contrast on missile bays work for you? It looked good up close, but feels a bit un...

Re: Dredger graphic

If I can't help the MiG (yet), let's have a container ship. Water freight. Civ6 has them, Freeciv should not be left behind ;)

GPL2 - reused transport hull.

A Cog would go well with it as medieval version. Let's see when I find more time.

Re: Transport equivalent for ironclads

XYZ: The ideas are intriguing. There's some overlap with the stuff GriffonSpade asked for elsewhere, so chances are that these graphics might materialize. At my geological speed, that is! See http://forum.freeciv.org/f/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=675 JTN: If there is a chance of having this in as an ac...

Re: Transport equivalent for ironclads

GPL2 because cruiser water and frigate flags.
