Can't Change # of Players

Postby NateDogPack12 » Sat Jun 03, 2017 11:10 pm

(1) - In pregame settings, I'm trying to change the number of players to 12-15. The game simply won't recognize the change and the figure stays @ 5.

(2) - In the Large World scenario, can I reduce the number of AI from the default 32 civs?

1. The maximum number of AI players in Freeciv-web is currently 8. I hope that should be enough for most players. The reason for limiting the number of AI players is to reduce CPU usage on the server. The server has to handle the games of many players, and to be fair the server resources have to be devided reasonably fairly between all players.

2. Yes, try between 1 and 8 AI players. I want to reduce the default number of AI players from 32 to 8 in the Large World scenario also, to share server resources among all players.
