Fortress and tile ownership?

Postby Corbeau » Fri Jan 12, 2018 8:07 pm

Where can I find (and switch off) the option that building a fort(ress) built on enemy territory changes tile ownership? I searched everywhere for "fort", but couldn't find it. Can it be changed at all?

Set 'border_sq = -1' for base_fortress at terrain.ruleset

Ah, got it, thanks.

Another question: it says "If enabled, base cannot exist in city tile." So, if it is set to -1 and thus disabled, a fortress *can* exist in a city tile. Does it give additional defence bonus then?

IIRC there's an explicit CityTileCenter FALSE requirement, e.g., if you build a city on a tile with a fortress the fortress is gone, no pillage required.
