Using /observe from saved/loaded file does not progress game

Smallpox vs. largepox, gen2 vs gen5, early war vs. peaceful alliances. Which is your favourite gaming style?

Using /observe from saved/loaded file does not progress game

Postby ogal » Thu Feb 20, 2020 11:41 pm

I set up a 2-player, AI-only, battle, but forgot to use /observe. While I could see the game proceeding in the mini-map, the main map was black. After terminating the game, I loaded up the 3950BCE auto-save file and did my /observe. Everything loaded fine, but there's no option to end the turn, so there's no game progress. Is this not possible?

Seems I have to /set timeout in order for the game to progress.
(Just have to remember to change /set autosave too.)
