How would I make the AI play for 100 turns?

Postby Hans Lemurson » Sat Jun 30, 2018 12:59 am

I want to create a modern filled-out world, but I don't want to spend the time playing through a game myself, or influencing the results of the world.

How would I go about making the AI play through the game for a fixed number of turns?

When I make myself the Observer, nobody does anything and I can't figure out how to end the turn. And even so, I'm not too keen on pressing the button 100 times, although that would be acceptable if there are no alternatives.

I activated the "AI-Auto-play" feature, but this just results in FreeCiv freezing and becoming unresponsive, and I can't easily just stop the world when I want to. Can I make the game pause after a pre-set number of turns?

How do I make this go? There are so many weird and strange buttons and knobs to pull.
Wishes he could convert Civ2's scenarios to FreeCiv...
But instead, he made his own tileset variants, RoundSquare and Sextant-enHANSed, and refuses to play on anything else. Check them out!
