Re: [Balance] Specials and Guards

I have in my current game a Warden (named Opinicus), which has one flak cannon and 3 death ray cannons, and I've noticed for first time that its flak cannon has 12 shots per bout, not bad! (and the DRs do 30 per shot each) I'm searching for the effect that changes the damage of those weapons but I ...

Re: Excruciating FOCS doubts

I've never found an unowned non-monster hull, except when I had bugs or problems with the save files. So... What's the point of that macro? Probably no point at present, but if any content removed ownership from some ships, it would start refueling them. Could be useful for making some pirates or o...

Re: Should fighters really act as cannonfodder?

You could also add flak/fighter weapons. If the original purpose was that there should at least some damage even against the best shields, fighters seem to be an obvious choice. Also i think we can be more experimental with monster weapons than with player weapons as access is quite restricted. So u...

Re: Ship part or hull that counters mines?

Nanorobotic hull can regenerate faster than mines damage, IIRC, and it could get a high stealth part for late game anti-mines hidden scout (an expensive scout indeed). For the robotic hull line that is an option. For other hull lines a part would be nice. Internal slots are few, especially if you w...

Re: Missile/Projectile Weapons

Some download options for the changes from PR-2710 (FOCS missile prototype). The given commands are for subversion (svn). github provides a folder-based download interface for svn. If your download speed is good you can simply pull the complete default folder (contains lots of art) and point your ga...

Re: Ninth game on the multiplayer slow game server

Please, yes, the no diplomacy game was rather diplomatic, even with planet "gifting", just with the nuissance of no diplomacy mechanics Well, cooperation was highly limited. Mainly you could not unify fleets. There was one funny instance where i tried to help L29Ah locking out swat from our cluster...

Re: Compiling under Linux - CMake - Python error

If you are trying to compile the latest master you will need python3 - we are in the process of removing python2.

Re: libicui18n.so.55 libicuuc.so.55 not found Ubuntu 18.04

I'm buying a new laptop and I'm going for Debian this time (last time I used it was 20 years ago, while at the College, and I couldn't make sound work, but I'm sure it can't be that bad anymore, compared to this Ubuntu stupidity). I'm really pissed off, ignore my rants. If you are going debian, you...

Re: libicui18n.so.55 libicuuc.so.55 not found Ubuntu 18.04

I could try to deliver the development environment as a snap, too. Not sure when though. No hurry from my part. I can still play FreeOrion from Windows, and it is not like I'm a FO developer, most of what I do can be done with notepad (++), spreadsheets and downloading default folders from github. ...

Re: Could not find boost_python36 (Ubuntu 18.04)

So where are the libs in real?

Here in fedora they are in /usr/lib64/

Also i think you can tell cmake to ignore boost if the version is too low:

CMakeLists.txt -

set(MINIMUM_BOOST_VERSION 1.58.0)

Now it also can't find a bunch of other stuff, like the whole SDL2 library that has been wiped out from removing the libboost*. I also removed the whole libreoffice package from my system. I'm sick of this, for a while. Should be able to get sdl and other dependencies back by (re)installing freeori...

Gibt es dafür mit gettext() vergleichbare Tools?
Nein, leider Gottes werden hier halbgare Eigenlösungen bevorzugt.
