Green = Happy
Blue = Content (normal)
Yellow = Unhappy
Red = Angry (never actually seen this one ingame)

2.5.0-beta1 is already more fun than 2.4.3. But if you are on Windows do not disable Autosave, you'll need it when the client crashes. You can clean up unused old auto-save files manually. With Autosave you can also undo stupid errors (clicked something you didn't want to click), just leave the game and start at the last auto-saved turn again. But don't cheat, there is no "undo" against human players ;)

That's why I recommend running server separately despite the client's ability to spawn one internally - if the client crashes, the game/server won't be affected.

Yes, I have a vague (1995) idea, what you're talking about for POSIX platforms, or anything else that isn't Windows.

From my POV as single player on Windows the server is (and for some years always was) rock solid; not confused by a crashing client, no matter how it was started.

Are you saing that in Windows server spawned by the client (child of client) is not shut down when client (the parent) closes, crashing or otherwise?

As for server's stability; I have almost constantly automatic all-AI games running, so my computer alone stress tests any new server releases thousands of hours. Client gets significantly less such automatic stress testing, and the coverage in those tests that run is very poor (not clicking around, but just following the game as observer).
