New to freeciv-web

Postby Eoric » Tue Aug 13, 2013 8:15 pm

I'm having a lot of fun playing freeciv-web. Really takes me back to earlier Civ gaming.

Two things:

1. I run the game in Chrome. Sometimes the Technology tab displays nothing - has anybody else run into this?

2. I can't figure out how to give my engineers the command to clean up pollution. Am I missing an obvious command?

Thanks!

There also doesn't appear to be a command for engineers to transform terrain, as described in the manual.

Freeciv-web is far from having all features of regular Freeciv, so it can happen that a command isn't implemented yet. But I'm sure it's being worked on.

Adding improved support for engineer actions will come in the next version. It should be easy to add support for this.

as a work-around if you need to clean pollution, try to automate the engineer near the pollution. If I press P then the engineer has "Pg" on it...what is that? If I automate then it will move to the pollution and show "N" on it.

Pillage - destroys roads, irrigation, mines, bases.

Ruins are a type of base.

Caedo:
A base is an Airport, right? And a Ruin is a Base?
Could you explain that?

Fortresses, Airbases and Bouys are what players would see as bases. However, in the code(or rather, terrain.ruleset), the ruins are bases too. But they can't be built and are only created through a ruleset-specific script(script.lua) when a city is destroyed.
