Postęp game

Postby Lachu » Mon Apr 03, 2017 3:45 pm

I decided to use Freeciv code as base for my own game. It would be available on SourceForge.net. Differences between Freeciv and Postęp:
- Roads/Railroads increases borders(borders would been spread across roads)
- Workers could build districts like in Civ6 (Partially done)
- Wild animals
- More than one technology tree (like in Civ6)
- Advancing in military would be faster if we disband experienced military units (It would teach newbie how to fight, etc.)
- Some units/buildings could been build only in some districts (done)
- Game would been assembled with two turns - first: plan turn - second: unit move turn
- Battles would be in real time, but on special maps - battle could take more than one turn
- There can exist unfriendly units on the same tile
- More in future

I'm wait for any suggestions.

I currently partially implement support for proud points. This points could been achieved by build special buildings(especially great wonders, palace, etc.). In future we could spend it to buy enemy cities, heal units, hiring heroes, buying new governments, etc.

Players can now buy enemy cities by proud points (instead by gold). Maybe should I publish code on sourceforge now? Is there anybody, who could help in development?

Currently only Palace provides proud points. Maximum points giving by palace is 100. Starting from 20 turn bonus from build palace will be decreased by 5 points for each 5 turn. If player build palace in 30 turn, the:
10 turn above limit / 5 gives 2. 2 + 1 gives 3 and 3 * 5 = 15, so 100 - 15 = 85.

Buying cities is now possible by proud points, instead of gold. In my opinion, that's normal citizens from other city will towards to your country if our citizens are more proud(for example more great wonders, etc.).

Tomorrow or in next day to tomorrow I will public first pre-alpha version. It hangs on sixth turn, but maybe somebody will test it and found other bugs. Search for it on sourceforge.net.

Sorry for long time not writing or publishing my work, but I have other projects, which must been done. I decided to release what I have as soon as it is possible, but I have one question.

Have I remove mark/brand from source and other files? If yes, then game will be released not so fast I will.

I ask that there's obligation to remove at minimum one of following:
- License notice (Freeciv) and put Postęp license notice (I will keep GPLv2 license) - i prefer to keep original Freeciv notice, but add my own above
- Freeciv name from each string in C source/header file, configuration file, etc.
- Replace Freeciv logo with other graphic.

You couldn't just choose any license: the license of Freeciv forbids the redistribution under licenses other than the GPL version 2 or later.

As far as I know, the name and logo aren't trademarked, so you can use them if you like. I don't think it's a problem for an early alpha version. It would be good for your fork not to overwrite Freeciv's config files.
