Some settings to vote on

I can't be bothered making the poll yet, but lets start listing some settings to vote on.

tlgive and tlrecv should both be set to ~60% maybe?

rapture time should be set to 2 turns

city trading disabled

increase the research cost of each tech?

shrink the map? (maybe just a little bit?)

Definitively - turn on killunhomed.

Also, I would like everyone who gives a poll - please write in description link to the poll. In such case I have the link in forum thread, and I can easily go to poll forum thread is about.

Re: Some settings to vote on

Is this possible to delay killunhomed units for newcommers? First of all you need time to reach land then to take a look at it and then finally deploying/fighting. It can be difficult to fight with green units but what about green and almost dead by this time?

Is it too bold to say that perhaps tech trading should be turned off as well. This will make the game fairer imho. Ppl with few friends are usually at a disadvantage otherwise.

This would be good. Let people who want to share tech let each other steal them. This would be kind of more realistic too. A nation's scientists can research more than one subject at once, and the time it takes to solve some problem isn't in an inverse linear relationship with the amount of people working on it, so N cooperating nations advancing at N times the speed of one is just extremely silly. Not to mention that completely free and instantaneous adoption of some technology is kind of ridiculous.

Sorry, I should have elaborated. tlrecv and tlgive are % chances of losing a tech during tech trading. A setting of 60% each means that there is a 60% chance the receiver won't get it, and a 60% that the giver will lose the tech. This severely disadvantages tech trading, but still leaves the possibility open. The alternative would be to disable tech trading as you have suggested.

Sorry dumb question. Is LTeX23 dead/finished? If it is over, I would suggest accelerating LTeX23B ahead of LT30 so more bugs can be discovered.

This could be achieved by giving everybody a bunch of starting techs (so that (for example) you start with gunpowder and the techs leading up to gunpowder)?

Re: Some settings to vote on

The vote to end LTeX23 only won by a single vote, so it was decided to let it keep running and start this game once dude finishes exams. Someone suggested a reason for not ending LTeX23 would be to find more late game bugs, and some people (myself included) like having a chance to play around with armor and howitzers big_smile

I tried that once in a local game. The problem is musketeers cost 3 times more than warriors, and you still have size 1 cities with no buildings. So offence has a great bonus, and defence is really hard.

when I've tried to play on a hex map before it was really buggy, it might have been my tileset though?

Re: Some settings to vote on

LTeX23B has been created in the git repository, polls can now be created. It was copied from LTeX23 as of 28.01.12

Source code of the server is the same as for LTeX23, I will not make a branch like I did for LT30.

Re: Some settings to vote on

How about I take the current LTeX23 map, /remove all players, keep the infrastructure, add 3 global warmings and 3 nuclear winters and we use that for LTeX23B?

I played a very big single player game with 2.2 and hexes. No bugs, AFAICS. Can you elaborate?

I used the plain 2d tileset, which is almost identical to the squares 2d tileset

Don't trust anybody, but also talk to all your neighbours as soon as possible.

Enjoy :-)
