Alien World ruleset is now maintained in freeciv proper version control for freeciv version 2.5. The plan is to make it part of actual release in freeciv 2.6.

- For freeciv 2.3 one can get latest version by entering URL "http://www.cazfi.net/freeciv/modinst/2.3/alien-2.3-4.modpack" to freeciv-modpack.
- For freeciv 2.4 one can get latest version by launching freeciv-modpack with parameter "-L http://www.cazfi.net/freeciv/modinst/2.4/modpack.list" and selecting alien from the modpack list provided
- For freeciv 2.5 there's no versions available at the moment
- Freeciv 2.6 should contain alien ruleset out-of-the-box

What do you mean? If passing commandline parameters to freeciv-modpack.exe, you need to run it from DOS-prompt (commandline) so that you can pass them. Alternatively you can pass correct modpack (not modpack list) URL directly to "Modpack URL" field of freeciv-modpack even if you have not launched with alternative modpack list viśible. That's less ideal as the URL is subject to change as I update the ruleset, but for alien-2.4-5 it's http://www.cazfi.net/freeciv/modinst/2. ... -5.modpack

Sorry about not understanding the whole thing.
I get a message saying that 'It doesn't like like a URL' or something to that effect. I tried with and without the '-L' thing, and no luck.
Please understand that under the DOS prompt, it does not accept *.exe files, but the *.cmd gives me back the same unknown answer.
And that's what I been trying: from the URL window: pasting your directions and 'glitch'!

Reading the freeciv-modpack.cmd it seems that it expects first parameter to be the language code (can be 'auto' to use system default) and only parameters starting from second are passed to freeciv-modpack.exe. So this might work:

Code: Select all

freeciv-modpack.cmd auto -L http://www.cazfi.net/freeciv/modinst/2.4/modpack.list

Tried that. It says 'This does not look like an URL for a modpack' (I'm translating, so it may be it is 'doesn't') and I still get NADA!
BTW, *.exe files under DOS are... well, I'm trying to be polite.

That sounds like the message it would say if you entered that modpack list URL into "Modpack URL" field.

In the attached screenshot I've both started freeciv-modpack (linux has no .exe -suffix for programs) with alternative modpack list, and "Modpack URL" shows alien ruleset modpack URL.
