This latest setup features all the latest stuff for making tech trading fun, fair and not a popularity contest. We also have full tech leakage makin...

Re: Setting up tech transfer for 2.6 based longturn.net game

Yes. I mean that setting. Do I understand correctly that it requires techs to be lost for forgiving the debt? I had the impression that it was possible to forgive like half of the debt without losing any techs.

Setting up tech transfer for 2.6 based longturn.net game

We are doing the tech trade with a unit based setup and this is because we want to limit how often the techs can be traded and also making it more difficult to give the techs away. It's mostly something that works for multiplayer games and not that much for single player. We have a unique scholar un...

multiplayer: new "fair continents" game at longturn.net in 2 weeks

Let's keep this short and with only few highlights from the upcoming game. This is LT58: - plenty of small islands - realistic but playable 30% land setup - new setup to keep the techs actually relevant for some time - democracy is not the only viable option for the end game - no hit and run for air...

Re: Hal Saflieni Hypogeum (small wonder)

Some of the cit names use non a-z letters bet yeah, that's maybe different. This was discussed on discord and the decision about changing it or keeping it as it is has not yet been made. Maybe it might be better to change it and move the non-latin charater name to the help text so that it it won't c...

Democracy is too powerful (from FCW discord)

Here we have a very very good post from Rosenblatt. Th message is from FCW discord server / open-discussions so I can't comment on there. I'm posting this here because most of the rulesets seem to have real balance issues with democracy and while we have made lots of work on longturn.net to figure t...

A mixed team / teamless game LT58 in November

https://longturn.net/game/LT58/ In this game we can have teams of 1-3 players (or even 4 if there are enough players) so you can play both team or teamless. Assuming that you qualify for a team. The teams can have one experienced player and the rest of the players need to be those who have not been ...

A new two team game, LT57

LT57 will be the third game in our "2 team trilogy" and it will be really interesting one since the score from the last two games is now tied. The estimated start date is in late October but this can and will be discussed. The map is is once again filled with islands and the ruleset is LTT...

LT55 with lt.net patches starting Oct 6th

https://longturn.net/game/LT55/ Some of the stuff: - the default diplomatic state between the nations is peace instead of war - nuclear weapons can destroy roads, mines, city improvements... - techs can't be stolen by conquering - the chance to steal techs with units is not linked to the probability...
