Status of freeciv-3.0

Postby cazfi » Wed Feb 20, 2019 12:24 am

Freeciv-3.0 is approaching datafile format freeze milestone. Changes to ruleset and tileset formats have been minimal for some time already. If there's an issues with these, please let us know now before they are frozen and further changes need to wait for freeciv-3.1.
The d3f ticket is Task #656466.

Current freeciv-3.0 features relative to freeciv-2.6 are listed in http://www.cazfi.net/freeciv/FEATURES-3.0.txt

While development timeline of each version is unique, for reference: freeciv-2.6 d3f was at March 2016 and freeciv-2.6.0 was released July 2018.

I'm currently building a new Windows build from S3_0, expect it to be available in a couple of days.

There are concerns for changes in the combat system to accompany the introduction of the rounds-limited combat. While the defender selection may be independent of datafiles (my draft on Wikia), the veteranship mechanism, if changed, probably should have settings associated.
