Ruleset specific Tilesets

Postby drakeraider » Sun Nov 11, 2018 8:31 am

So how do I format/store tiles and units to have added graphics?

For clarity. I'm working on a ruleset right now. And if I were to use, say, Griffonspade's unit extensions here http://forum.freeciv.org/f/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=254

How would I have these graphics accessible so that loading this ruleset will automatically defer to this unit sheet? And for that matter, how would I store it in the Freeciv folder? A separate tileset folder or some subfolder of the ruleset?

I also would like to learn how to do this for Terrain tiles/Extras, as there are a good degree of terrain features and bases in this ruleset.

There's support for 'preferred' entry in game.ruleset [tileset] section, but I see it's not properly documented -> opened http://www.hostedredmine.com/issues/785647
