Discovery at the turn change

What would you like to see in Freeciv? Do you have a good idea what should be improved or how?

Discovery at the turn change

Postby Wahazar » Sat Nov 24, 2018 11:12 pm

I propose to discover new technology at the turn change, similar to production/growth etc.
currently it can be done immediately, thus any misclick can ruin your accumulated bulbs.

Sometimes I want to discover a tech when I click it. Or more of them.

"Sometimes I want to immediately build unit/building when I click it. Or more of them." Doesn't it sounds like a cheat?

That's how the game works.

You could consider it unrealistic, but every game is an approximation of reality. Some things are made more difficult while some things are made easier. This one is made easier.

Probably, it would be nice to add a dialog box for an advance that requires not more bulbs han we actually have (situations when we have done a discovery this turn, or, a really lurking trap, when the research change fine is like 90% and we misclick Ceremonial Burial one step before getting to Republic). We can freely rethink other advances within a turn but not these.

It is not about realism, only crucial game mechanism.
This game is turn based, all production/food/city size/gold/bulbs are per turn, so why advances work differently?
