The signups for LT49 are open

Postby wieder » Tue Jun 25, 2019 12:27 pm

LT49 will be a Freeciv 2.5 based team game.

http://longturn.net/game/LT49/

It's possibly island based and it's played with the more traditional longturn.net ruleset that's based on LT47. The ruleset will have few minor changes mostly affecting the early game.

The game is planned to start mid July but the start date is not carved on stone and can be changed.

Feel free to suggest changes, settings and ideas for the game.

The best multiplayer Freeciv games are played on longturn.net. Join the game and have the possibility to learn some great strategies from the more experienced players in your team.

Joining to the game should be done before it starts. Unlike with more casual games, late joining is usually not possible.

Yes. 2.6 is planned sooner than later. This game will be 2.5 because we want to launch one sooner than later and 2.6 can be worked out while this game is running.

If there are any volunteers to translate 2.5 ruleset into 2.6, I’m sure it will be accepted extatically :)

It’s probably not a matter of it being difficult, but of spending several hours on it.

Looks like we have enough players for a nice two team game starting next week.

You can still join this game. Joining after the start can only be done if there are idlers. We don't have idling players as huts in this game. There is actually only one hut.

LT49 will be mostly similar to LT49 but there are some changes mostly affecting the early game by changing the ancient units to have 2x moves instead of the traditional 3x. The 2nd major change is for controlling the global warming where it now actually makes sense to build eco friendly power plants. In the previous games doing that more or less wrecked your economy.

https://github.com/longturn/games/commits/master/LT47

Here are the current changes:
LT49: global warming percent 40 (50)
LT49: gold transfer cost is 30% (10%)
LT49: Monarchy will get more free units at city size 16 (8)
LT49: the recycling centre costs 60 (140)
LT49: nuclear plant cost 135 (140) and sabotage 40 (100)
LT49: the hydro plant costs 120 (140)
LT49: The hydro plant costs 120 (140)
LT49: The solar plant costs 80 (160)
LT49: Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum renamed
LT49: added the hypogeum tomb (small wonder, +4 lux to a city) …
LT49: Pyramids with CoL (Masonry) cost 140 (160)
LT49: barracks II costs 40 (45)
LT49: barracks I costs 50 (60)
LT49: knights have 5 moves (6)
LT49: diplomats have 5 moves (5)
LT49 swordsmen have 2 moves (3)
LT49: archers have 2 moves (3)
LT49: chariots have 4 moves (6)
LT49: elephants have 4 moves (5)
LT49: horsemen have 4 moves (6)
LT49: warriors have 2 moves (3)
LT49: big land units can pillage
LT49: helicopters have 12 moves (18) …
LT49: nukes, missiles and cruise missiles are always green
LT49: SDI sabotage success 50% (was 100%)
LT49: partisans 2 moves (3) and partial invisibility
LT49: howitzers have 7 moves (was 6)
LT49: the chance to steal techs with diplomats/spies is 8% (5%)
LT49: the bonus for super highways is now 25% (was 50%) …
LT49: added the base ruleset based on LT47

This is a pleasant surprise. So finally no more internal inconsistencies?

Yes. Finally we'll have once again a game where the rules are not changed after the game has started :)

And yeah, LT49 will be similar to LT47.
