Question: Fort changes tile ownership

Postby Corbeau » Fri Dec 21, 2018 8:17 pm

We're playing a game with this:

Code: Select all

[base_fortress]
(...)
border_sq      = -1


Allegedly, this should make fortress NOT claim tile ownership. However, it seems that it does claim it. Any idea what's going on?

Could be that the code is treating the value as unsigned, which makes it effectively 255. I heard that something similar was responsible for Ghandi becoming so murderous. Maybe try 0?

Is there any other border generating something?
I think other city is in near...
Have you tried middle clicking on the fortress and check who claimed the tile?
