Re: Generic build scripts

all of the packages installed using sudo apt-get package_name. I also did dpkg-query on each package before installing the package to make sure it wasn't installed already, a few were, most weren't. Some of the packages took like 10-15 minutes to download and install. I had time to eat breakfast dur...

Re: Generic build scripts

Cazfi, thanks for your hard work I have been reading your script and trying it out piece by piece on a Raspberry Pi (using Raspian as the OS). I am still doing all the sudo apt-get on the packages, one by one. I have one comment so far. Apt-get has twice recommended that I do a "sudo apt-get au...

Re: Production bonus in some cases.

agreed! only one specialty plant per city, and the ongoing cost is the same whether or not you are building a unit in which that plant specializes.

Re: is it possible to build a canal?

I have built a canal (indirectly) via building a city on an ithmus of land. If the ithmus is just one unit of land wide, built a city. This naval forces can enter the city from one sea, pass through the city, and go out into the other sea. However, I'd like to build canals between rivers, the way th...

Re: Production bonus in some cases.

good ideas! What about a small wonder named Model T Ford Assembly Plant to decrease the time it takes to build anything in that city? What about specialty plants (Munitions Factory, Aircraft Factory, Dry Dock ) where you have to already built a Factory and a Manufacturing Plant (and Coastal Defense ...

is it possible to build a canal?

Building canals is part of world history, but it just dawned on me, I don't know how to build a canal in our favorite game. Is it possible? If so, how? Think of all the canals, there's a major network in Europe, the one connecting the Rhine and the Danube, there's several connecting the three major ...

Re: About the community

I really liked Vladimir's comments about campaigns. We have a few scenarios that can be used as a basis for a campaign. But we could use more. What I'm thinking about is historical campaigns such as Spain and Portual during the age of discovery, the Apaches coming south out of Canada (based on oral ...

Re: Single city challenge

One more item that surprised me was that when I did research trade, I was limited to only two trade routes. I remember reading that the limit was four, and all of my other freeciv games have limited me to four simultaneous trade routes. This game limited me to two and it surprised me. Would someone ...

Re: Single city challenge

This is not a trivial game. I tried it with the Europe scenario with about 7 or 8 nations with AI set to normal. I was on a river at the edge of the Baltic Sea (sorta like one of the cities in the Hanseatic League). My first mistake was going for Monarchy first. Nope, I now believe that going for Tr...
