That's what I'm hoping, too. But from Cazfi's comments, it doesn't seem promising. I guess I'll stick to my version 2.6 beta 35267.

Were I unclear? Windows gtk2-client is still supported in freeciv-2.6.

Thanks, all fine. The wiki and this board should have a +1 or similar button (locally, not some G+ tracking) for registered users :)

Meanwhile it takes me less than 10 minutes to find packages/windows/testing/cazfi/installer_msys2/releases/2.6.0-beta2, and less than 10 minutes to figure out that this in fact what I was looking for. :P

Hi,

New to the game, how do I customize the interface?
I often get lost with the default one.
I'm running gtk3 version on Ubuntu.

Hi BikerViking, welcome to Freeciv! A fellow ubuntu user here (although the instructions are the same). Sorry nobody welcomed you or responded to this question yet.

To tweak the UI: After you start a game, at the tool bar at the top, go to 'Game' --> 'Options' --> 'Local Client'. This will let you change all manner of things about how the game looks on your machine.

If you're looking to tweak the GUI, then the tab you want is 'Interface'. Experimentation here is proabbly best, although lots of the options are pretty intuitive. Good luck!
