Why do you play Freeciv-web vs Freeciv?

I thought the dev team for freeciv-web might like to know that their work is appreciated. I play Freeciv-web because I can play it in my LazyBoy chair on my ChromeBook. I play Freeciv-web because I can play it on my company provided laptop (that is locked down-can't install Freeciv) while I am trave...

Re: trying to play 2.5.10 on window client/server, can't connect

installed telnet on windows
I could telnet on port 5556 and could tell that it was waiting for a response, in contrast to trying to telnet to port 5557, which said connection denied.

Will repeat with 2.5.11 when available and see what happens

Re: Bug? Selecting specialists (taxmen, scientists...)

My observation is that there is a pecking order among specialists. All of one type are put first (entertainer), then all of the tax accountants, then all of the scientists (I don't remember the exact order). So if all of the specialists are of one type, it doesn't matter which one you click. I have ...

Raspberry PI server?

With FreeCiv-Web shutdown (I had a four hours free today :( ), I guess it is time for me to download the client and server versions. Does any one know if the server version runs an a Raspberry Pi (model 3)? Which OS did you use? For $35 US I can have a dedicated server.

Re: Status of Freeciv for Android

I'm happy to see this thread! :D I found it because my ASUS Chromebook just updated itself (today) to allow me to run Android Apps. I guess I have an older model C100P. I wonder how many other Chromebooks recently were upgraded to allow them to play Android apps from the Google Play store. Anyhow, s...

two bugs while naming a city

I think I have two different issues, both occurring while trying to name a newly built city. First, my nation is Navajo, and the city name of T'iists ooz Ndeesngizh may have some special characters in it. When I build a city and the AI chooses that name for me, and I press enter to accept the city n...
