Re: Your Battleship was bribed

wasted a lot of moves trying to bribe pirate . babarian cities and units. Oddly enough they are always unbribeable iike a democracy.
In the original Civ2 you could bribe barbarian units, not sure if that works in current freeciv rulesets. If it doesn't, I think it should be made possible.

Re: One City Challenge

I often play OCC with barbarians enabled (hard but not cheating), and find I have more problems with other civs than barbarians. Yes it's scary when they send Musketeers and all you have is Phalanx or Legion, but in my experience they shy away and don't attack if I have city walls, or even a fortres...

Re: Meson build project congiruation requires SDL2?

SDL2 and SDL2_mixer packages are required for audio support, independent of the client. You need to install the SDL2 & SDL2_mixer packages.

The SDL client requires 3 more packages - SDL2_image, SDL2_gfx, SDL2_ttf.

Re: MacOS-3.0.5

Oops, just discovered that my meson built app doesn't work as is. You would need to install homebrew and use that to install needed packages to make it work. So I'll withdraw it from the Dropbox, and re-think my plans.

Re: Stable release 3.0.5

No, only on my Mac, I don't have access to a server. I doubt anyone but me would be interested in it. Also don't think it's worthwhile to fork the freeciv code base or make a new branch since 3.1 will be coming soon.
