Re: A Tale of Two Fixes.

WOW! Hail the brave knight fighting through this grim dungeon full of treacherous traps and unspeakable monsters! I once tried to fix fsd but my poor programming skills suspended the work for an indefinite time. I hope you'll provide some progress for HRM#880895 and HRM#819533 that I've abandoned.

Re: A way to make targeted Upgrade_Unit (Leonardo) effect

Well, after a good consideration I decided that there is no good way to unhardcode "Upgrade_Unit" within the system of specfiles, effects and requiremements with any reasonable modifications. This effect is a bonus that should be unhardcoded by Lua as it has been done to hut bonuses long a...

Re: Correct the rulesets civ1 and civ2

Don't remember where I have questioned the visibility rules of commercial games compared to ours, but that's what I've found on CivII forum: you know how when you run a sub into another, it takes two clicks to attack: one when you hit it, and it appears, and another to attack Submarines can not see ...

Re: Correct the rulesets civ1 and civ2

A thing CivII has: when it places a player's starting location, it runs some procedure to estimate its worth and tries to find the best one available. If this location is not good enough, the game compensates it gifting more starting techs. (So the last player placed usually starts as the most advan...

Re: Obligatory hard action requirements you want dropped

My first attempt was: action = "Attack" target_reqs = { "type", "name", "range", "present" "UnitState", "OnNativeTile", "Local", TRUE } But that means the target must be on a tile native to the target. I can't find a wa...

Automated precaution before invasions

Currently it's not so big deal since AI can't coordinate attacks. But if it will be improved (but still omniscient), for low difficulcies there should be a message like "[nation name/Unknown] rangers are spotted near [your city name]. Something is going to happen there..." (the last senten...

Re: What's With the AI, It Should Have Crushed Me?

The responses reminded me of another irritant. It seems that if you attempt to negotiate with an AI, they flat-out refuse. Of course it is possible that I am not offering them enough incentive to accept a cease-fire. You could track their attitude towards you in F3 pad. If they don't like you, thei...

Re: What's With the AI, It Should Have Crushed Me?

Yes, there is some bug about AI and spaceship; something was done in the latest releases to make it desire space victory more and hate space race leader more, but actually it seems to me now is often even worse. Did you play against 1 AI nation? If there were several ones, they probably got into end...

Re: Unit requirements on Upkeep_Factor effect

The homecity requirement raises the issue concerning Civ I compliance for unhappy uk. (The unit must be IN the homecity to avoid the unhappy uk.) Well, we just don't have this CivI feature, wether we do have any reqs on Upkeep_Factor or not (this effect is not about happiness any way). Neither do w...
