Re: Need help with ruleset

The limit is hardcoded, so you cannot change it with modifying any rules or settings files. But do you really need more than 10 specific techs for each nation? You shouldn't be adding any techs that all nations have this way. There's global init techs (also limited to 10 entries) for techs that all ...

Re: Yep--too hard to beat!

The big problem is that there's not much difference in difficulty of different levels. Soon after you learn the tricks to beat the easiest level, even hardest level is not giving any challenge. The recipe to win all my games against AI opponents last 15 years has been mostly just defending in the ea...

Re: my wishlist

Would it be possible to modify the game so that one could study an era in far more detail? Core mechanics of the game are what they are, so you cannot have more detailed view like different currencies for different nations, for example. But if you just want to have more techs or units of certain er...

Re: Place to keep art resources relevant to Freeciv

On the old server machine we had ftp server with possibility of anonymous uploads. Given that none of us has too much time in our hands to things like monitoring what would happen on such a server, I'm afraid that's not going to come back any time soon. We have files for download on both sourceforge...

Re: Can you help improve your favourite game? // GameLoss

I have some issues about the GameLoss, referring to version 2.4.99. In the future, please tell the revision number too when referring to development versions. Where can I see the revision number? In your svn repository checkout: > svn info It also prints the revision you update to every time you do...

Re: A question to the gurus

A question to the gurus: does dai_military_rampage actually perform a game action or is it just a virtual calculation of outcome? Among other things, function header says that unit kills enemies and might die in there. It only returns wether rampaging unit died - not results of the hard work of sel...

Re: GameLoss, AI and AIUNIT_DEFEND_HOME

I did a little debugging to see what causes the AI Leaders to go out and take a fatal risk. The unit_data->task was either None or Defend home, and, rarely, recover. Defend home was also the state of the enemy hordes that swept against my borders.. A rather aggressive way to "defend home"...

Re: GameLoss and civil war

When civil war occurs, the new AI plaer does not have a GameLoss figure. If someone could give me a hint on where to start I would like to try fixing it. This is certainly not as simple question as you seem to think. What's you use-case? Why should new player have GameLoss unit? There's no new unit...

I have some issues about the GameLoss, referring to version 2.4.99. In the future, please tell the revision number too when referring to development versions. 1) When I lose my leader, my client just wont be able to interact with the server any more. Maybe this feature is intended, but it seams esp...
