set human name and nation automatically

Postby Dino the Dinosore » Sun May 27, 2018 1:59 am

I always play with the same nation and leader name, and I'd like that to be automatic. As discussed on another thread -
http://forum.freeciv.org/f/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=90120&p=98493#p98493 - that is not currently possible via scripting or server commands. I think the ideal way to implement it is to save them in the "preferences" file (~/.freeciv/freeciv-client-rc-2.6 on my machine), along with the line

default_user_name="dino"

Just update that file whenever the human picks a nation/name and everyone gets this functionality, no need to do custom rulesets or server commands.
