Re: LW3

a szu's version, perhaps earlier in the game, like with warrior code, for 200 shields.

a lighhouseversion for horses, charriots, etc...? like one or two movement more for say bout 200 shields, you can build it when u research the wheel.

an exclusive for phalanxs wonder, one plus defenses(or 50% plus), we could restirct that just for cities, say also 200 shields.

a catapult wonder, so it can move without roads and on hills. for 200 shields with maths.

a wonder so units, or some units, have one plus vision, 200 shields, with dunno.

and a wonder for diplos, so they dont disappear after using them in a city, say 200 shields too.

the cost of each wonder, can be, in my point of view, cheapier, like 100 shields.

yeah, that.

"a catapult wonder, so it can move without roads and on hills. for 200 shields with maths."

Maybe you could have catapults moving without roads by default. If the ruleset is based on LT34, it's worth notiving what other changes were made to catas. They are now citybusters (not by default) and can't be built as veterans.

Re: LW3

indeed it is so, but as u Lt guys have changed that and it looked like you wanna keep it that way, i was just trying to suggest a wonder.

but it seems you guys dont like that, and thought it is a stupid noob idea.
so no worries no more comments from my side.
you can build your games as you like it. but dont start asking for suggestion if u can handle them.
i mean any suggestion as stupid it can be it is a suggestion and playing the smart *** isnt the nice way.

so you "experienced" players can fix the game, i play it.

but in any case if u come to the metaserver(rts for the ignorants among you) dont come ask stupid questions.

And again i know that in default they can use mountains... man makes me these arrogance angry.

PS: dont make like me in this comment, next time you could read, breath, think, breath, think again, breath, read again, try to understand, breath and then answer.

Re: LW3

Sun Tsu should help promoting war.

Another thing is the research cost. With focus on military you will use less resources on research. I was considering 60%-70% tech cost for LT35 while LT34 had 80%. It's easier and faster to research with islands but with no tech trading it's still slow even with tech leakage.

It's a good idea but another way would be revering to default.

"you can build your games as you like it. but dont start asking for suggestion if u can handle them."

??? Suggestions are good.

"but in any case if u come to the metaserver(rts for the ignorants among you) dont come ask stupid questions."

Someone told me that those games are about building caravans. This has changed?

Re: LW3

nope, just caravans nothing more, we use them too build roads, cities, improve the infra, attack, defend, we even use them as city walls.

so dont give it a try, cause you have it figured out, please dont go there you will destroy us all.

i will copy paste your ip, and tell all my caravans building friends that they should we aware of you. And better dont try to play you, cause you are godlike. But if you still go, dont forget: caravans building is all you have to do... ehm, sorry, that you already know.

and just cause i cant otherwise, the idea was that catapults cant move without roads, but if u invest in a wonder they can move free. And reverting that would make a wonder like that worthless. That was kinda hard to understand, ill get it.

Perhaps it was my fault, instead of writing caravan, caravan, caravan i should have explained myself better.

Im sorry to caravan caravan caravan all of you.

Have a nice caravanend.

Best caravans to all of you.

Caravan.

Re: LW3

Re wonders

although I would prefer if Edrim were to continue with his original idea of the game where there were no wonders at all ( there is a lot to be said for playing a game that is consistent to one person's vision )... I must say I really like El_perdedor's idea of a military wonder that allows Catapult units to move onto foreign terrain. (obviously in a ruleset that otherwise prohibits it).

One thing (amongst many) missing from our free version of the game is national characteristics. This comes to some extent with initial free techs, but a Wonder like this reminds one instantly of the more sophisticated trebuchet, and even Roman ballistae (is that the correct plural ending?). If you want to have a war-focused round in LW, then having a series of such Wonders would be a way.

But I worry for your new little-one. Unless someone is willing to do (almost all) the work, you should stick to your original plan. No wonders. Either that, or you put the start date back. How could we possibly agree on which Wonders to have? It's impossible.

Re: LW3

I caravan what you just said!!!


i thought of the joke later on, so i wanted to post it.

and i would also preffer if the games would stay the same for at least to 2 rounds, so you can ajust to it...
*by you i mean me.

and as a famous freeciv manager once said, "some say that freeciv is a thing about life and death, well i say that it is more then that"

I see that LW3a is based on LW2, while LW3b is based on LT34.  Is that correct?

Yes, because i am not sure which ruleset will be changed for LW3, we have issues with teraforming, but while i am going to change it drastically, it is not a problem.

Re: LW3

I have once again think about catapults on roads, maybe it is not bad to put them only on roads, and a wonder wich will allow to bypass them on other flat terian, but i dont think if it is possible in ruleset to make such a wonder.

Have you noticed that it also prevent them from targeting an attack to a tile with no road? So they can move to adjacent tile with road but if the enemy unit stands on one without road then the catapult cannot do anything.

Re: LW3

Yeah thats annoying.. and easily fixed by adding the "Attack Non Native" attribute.
I think restricting movement for Large Land class is totally fair but then dont stop them attacking adjacent tiles. Best of both.

Although that does mean they could attack ships... Siege of Syracuse style.

Re: LW3

Some land units attacking the early triremes might be nice. A catapult doing that would be interesting.

Re: LW3

Anybody willing to help me with ruleset? I am totaly out of initiative.
I am going to set some settings now, so i will be write post by post here with changes, please correct me if i will do something wrong.
First of all terraforming, i am going to make very flat land without wrap, with some hills/mountains, swamp/forrest.
I hope you will like this type of terrerian changeing, I am not sure if engeeners shouldnt have some alternate abbilities.

So workers can do:
Hills from Mountains.
Plains from Hills.
Grassland from Plains.
Plains from forrest.
Grassland from swamp.
Plains from desert.
Forrest from Jungle.

All this terraforming is with cost of 4 turns by one green worker.

If you want to talk i will be on IRC in time of ruleset changeing.

So cities will never be size 1 after the first growth? Building a settler at size 3 will shrink the city to size 1 but it will always grow back to size 2. That is because the free granary effect has provided the city with 10 food on previous growth. Was this your intention?

In this way i will set it to 12,20,... we can see what happen in test game when launched.
