I don't think about changing license of game (I wrote that I will keep GPLv2 license), but about changing license notice, so instead of:

Code: Select all

I will put

What about this? I changed the end date in Freeciv's copyright notice to reflect the truth.

Code: Select all

I suggest you read the GPL and the FSF FAQs to have an idea of what you can do and what you have to do. If you want to be absolutely safe, talk to a lawyer, but I doubt there is a real risk. If somebody thinks you violate his/her copyright, s.he will most likely send you an email.

Beware that Unicode characters may be displayed incorrectly in some environments, and some older compilers might even choke on them (the Cint C++ interpreter does, although it has never been widely used).

Thanks. About ę (super e in Polish alphabet), I decided to change name of game into some English world. Maybe Research Nations?

If I got it right, "postęp" means "progress". What's wrong with that?

Because FreeSoftware Fundation Law Center didn't reply so long, I've decided to put source at sourceforge. Game name is progress: call to power, because progress is reserved currently.

I have problem with research. When playing with AI game hangs after some turns. I think that games shouldn't be made to play with AI, because I don't have knowledge about artificial intelligence, but I decided to let player option to play with AI.

I just forgot to put link to game:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/progre ... -to-power/

Once I have done some work, I will make flatpak package with this game.

I have idea for first great person type: great leader.

This kind of units will have two new actions:
1. Government revolution - allows to change government type without anarchy period. It consumes unit.
2. Cultural revolution - boost social science progress for some turns, but also makes people unhappy. It consumes unit.

I have discovered that maybe it's connected with no future tech available. Where code responsible for future tech generation are placed? I have split technologies into three section: normal science, social science and militaristic science. Maybe that's a reason? I will thank to someone, who help me.
