Re: Production bonus in some cases.

good ideas! What about a small wonder named Model T Ford Assembly Plant to decrease the time it takes to build anything in that city? What about specialty plants (Munitions Factory, Aircraft Factory, Dry Dock ) where you have to already built a Factory and a Manufacturing Plant (and Coastal Defense ...

is it possible to build a canal?

Building canals is part of world history, but it just dawned on me, I don't know how to build a canal in our favorite game. Is it possible? If so, how? Think of all the canals, there's a major network in Europe, the one connecting the Rhine and the Danube, there's several connecting the three major ...

Re: About the community

I really liked Vladimir's comments about campaigns. We have a few scenarios that can be used as a basis for a campaign. But we could use more. What I'm thinking about is historical campaigns such as Spain and Portual during the age of discovery, the Apaches coming south out of Canada (based on oral ...

Re: Single city challenge

One more item that surprised me was that when I did research trade, I was limited to only two trade routes. I remember reading that the limit was four, and all of my other freeciv games have limited me to four simultaneous trade routes. This game limited me to two and it surprised me. Would someone ...

Re: Single city challenge

This is not a trivial game. I tried it with the Europe scenario with about 7 or 8 nations with AI set to normal. I was on a river at the edge of the Baltic Sea (sorta like one of the cities in the Hanseatic League). My first mistake was going for Monarchy first. Nope, I now believe that going for Tr...

Re: How to make a multiplayer server

after you finish the game and exit from the gui (GTK) client, each computer will have a dos box. In that dos box, type exit.

For the dos box where you started started the server, type in two commands, quit, then exit.

Re: How to make a multiplayer server

This answer is for Windows users, and I have assumed you have downloaded (and installed) the file freeciv-2.5.11-win32-gtk-setup.exe on to your two computers for your 1v1. This file is available on the downloads page. These instructions also assume the computers are on the same LAN, in other words y...

Re: How to make a multiplayer server

This post might get more visibility if it were in the Tech Support subforum. Perhaps a moderator will move it. Anyhow, are you trying to set up a freeciv for a lan party or for an internet party. The difference is that you would have to make changes to your router that protects your intranet (lan) f...

Re: Single city challenge

would you buy the improvements "Mass Transit" or "Recycling Center" which minimize the creation of pollution, or would you keep on hand a pair of engineers to cleanup pollution terrain?

Re: Single city challenge

Do you want to have ocean/lake?


Dolp! :roll:

if one doesn't then one would have to bribe another player's freighter in order to move off of your island for trade purposes as an example.

While I have bribed enemy units, I have never attempted to bribe a vessel. I suppose it would be possible.
