How do I get rid of pirates/Barbarians?

Postby LtTomMike » Sun May 03, 2015 9:44 pm

Im not to sure how to get rid of them other then attacking them but is there a way to officially get rid of them? Like do they have camps,cities, or whatever thats being kept secret because i can't find a city or a camp anywhere also is there a way to get rid of the nations in settings? My cities get smaller and are always under attack by these Entity AI's and i want them gone forever out of my map!

There's a game/server setting "barbarians" (at least that's what it's called in 2.5). Setting it to "DISABLED" will disable barbarians completely.

They have no towns that can be located they just pop up wherever, whenever and I've killed they're leader lots of times and no effect

Ive checked that and i haven't found anything for it, did it perhaps get removed?

It's not in client gui, I think. You need to set it in server console, or via client chatline: "/set barbarians DISABLED"
There's also 'onsetbarbs' setting that controls which turn barbarians appear at the earliest ('/explain onsetbarbs')

Pirates are a kind of barbarians. They are therefore disabled if you disable barbarians.
