Re: Can I get a mousetrap?

My wish is for a user option to disable directional movement commands by the mouse. How about G ame- O ptions- L ocal Client; Interface tab; Keyboardless goto ? Unchek this option to not be able to drag a route for a unit with the mouse. The above described waypoint definition still works if you in...

Re: Install new GTK Theme in Windows

Yeah Handuman, I knew about those disconnections, but you end up with at least to windows floating around that get in the way of one thing or another. I don't know how to hide them and call them up at will. G ame- O ptions- L ocal Client; Interface tab; Keep dialogs on top . Unchek this option to s...

Re: Install new GTK Theme in Windows

What I was looking for is better viewing (bigger map), hiding the map with a tab, getting rid of that left column... etc. A theme defines how the elements on a window are displayed. It does not define which elements are present. You can disconnect the "left column" from the main view by c...

Re: Can I get a mousetrap?

'G' -key makes waypoint. Draw the goto -line to the tile you want as waypoint, press 'G', and then you can continue goto -line to next waypoint. Thanks! That does work when the start and end points are on the same screen width, but it looks like I need to use the mouse to draw the path. I was hopin...

Re: How to "create_unit"

Is it possible to run server console when i create single player game? I'm not exactly sure what you are asking here but... All games need a server running to be able to play. One is started automatically when you start a game from client. You can enter server commands in client's chat prompt and t...

Re: Changes in what a rule set can do

Yeah, I had that idea too, but I never tested it because I thought movement 0 also means that the unit can't attack, and that would turn our beatiful turret into a wall. Although, that would be a nice idea too. I might do just that now. If it turns out that movement 0 makes attacking impossible, yo...

Re: Glaciers and Frozen Water

Years ago, when I was still playing actively long turn type of games with my frfiends, I created this. Pretty much the JTN way. The Freeciv version was 2.3.x. I found the ruleset files and this is how it looks like: terrain.ruleset [terrain_ice] name = _("Ice") graphic = "ice" gr...

This reminds me of...

Back then it did not give me any error dialog but otherwise rings a bell?

Re: What is this?

I don't think they are coming from this forum. Sorry to say but it seems your computer is being attacked. It has most likely been infected with some malware that loads and displays random ads while you're browsing the net.

Or are you saying it only happens with this forum?

Re: How I can take only european countries?

You can hand-pick a nation for yourself and all the AI's if you want. On the starting screen, right-click on the player to open a context menu with lots of choises, including Pick nation.

EDIT: Or you can modify the nations.ruleset file and remove all unwanted nations from there.
