Re: A bit of my strategy

What I've written so far was only the beginning of the game. And I don't give set turn numbers because the technology costs, production costs and city growth costs can be customized. Overall, I don't want to have everyone to play exactly like me, I'm just giving them part of my knowledge. I usually ...

A bit of my strategy in Single Player

I just wanted to share my strategies with you, so that you can be a good player. Base options : I usually use the Island-based generator( /set generator "ISLAND" ) and let the game place one player per continent( /set startpos "SINGLE" ). This makes sure that I don't get in conta...

Re: Need help with ruleset

I'm sorry for double posting, but otherwise, this would probably be overseen. Completely different topic: It seems there's no way to have different GameLoss units. As mentioned above, I am working with root_req, and in the ruleset I'm creating, there are three different tribes. Since they look very...

Re: Problem with civ2-3 modpack

With Freeciv 2.3.3 I've always noticed that switching to other rulesets in the client can cause it to return to the main menu, but by launching a server with -r data/<ruleset> , it always worked. Haven't tried switching rulesets in the client in 2.3.4 though. EDIT: Still doesn't work in Freeciv 2.3....

Re: Need help with ruleset

I have already worked with root_req(in Freeciv 2.3.3, haven't testet 2.3.4 yet) and it's working great for different tech trees.
The idea with the Lua scripting seems great for other stuff, I'll just have to get into Lua again, and Freeciv scripting in general. Thanks for the ideas! :D

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

I was just thinking about GameLoss-Civilwar-thing and came up with this: Maybe about half of the cities could join the player who killed the GameLoss unit, the other cities get to be controlled by allies of the dead player(if he has any), or become barbarian/pirate cities. This is just my idea though.

Re: Need help with ruleset

It's just so that the different nations should start with completely different technologies, so global_init_techs won't help. Well, maybe I'll find some way to do it. Where there's a will, there's a way.

Need help with ruleset

I didn't know where to put this, so I'm just posting it here: I'm creating a mod-like ruleset. However, I encountered a problem: I wanted to create different nations with different starting technologies, but it seems there's a maximum of 10 for the nation_*.init_techs option. Is it possible to incre...

Re: Yep--too hard to beat!

Yeah, I usually play on Island-based maps(1 Player per Continent), so I don't even get in contact with the AI in the beginning. And as soon as they meet me, they offer a cease-fire, and when that's almost over, most of them accept peace, so I can buid up my empire without them doing anything. And th...
