Re: Empire penalty

I think the empire size penalty is less about realism and more about balance – there's got to be some cost for having more cities.

Re: Location of attacks

If you double-click the message (or select it and click the "Goto Location" button), it should center the main view on the place where it happened.

Re: Create land tiles over sea

In many of the supplied rulesets, Enginners (or a comparable advanced worker unit) can transform Ocean tiles into land (sometimes requiring other technologies, or requiring a certain amount of land alread present around the tile). You'll likely have to load the Engineers onto a transport ship to do ...

Re: Spaceship

You need one more component – each actual engine consists of two parts, the fuel tank and the engine itself, so components must always come in pairs to be useful. You also need two more modules (and structurals to connect them) – each population module requires a life support module and solar panels...

Re: Future Tech

At the moment, nothing. They're just something to sink additional research into. Some rulesets might be able to do something with them (e.g. grant bonuses based on how many you have) in the future.

Re: Load units in ships

Frigates and Ironclads should be upgrading to Destroyers – the Galleon is the one that's upgraded to a Transport, and they should very much be able to transport units. The exact specifics depend on which ruleset you're using, but you can generally check the in-game help browser for information like ...

Re: A bit of playable realism: Season an climatic zone effects

I've been thinking about the seasons and map temperature thing for a while now – if we make seasonal effects, it would also be neat to be able to have two hemispheres. An idea I had for this was a "MinLatitude" requirement type, with each tile being assigned an integer latitude – maybe fro...

Re: non-native attack failed

Ignatus wrote:This is strange, control.c code calls request_transport() only if the destination move tile has unlivable terrain.

If I understand this correctly, that's precisely the case – an attack from a non-native tile against another non-native tile.

Re: Random Q&A

Caveat: It might be possible that Defend_Bonus is only evaluated when attacking a city. I've never actually checked.
