FreeCiv 2.5.0 Changelog Summary

  • Fixes to longstanding bugs in border rules
  • Fixes to corner cases in the civ2civ3 rules
  • The client could sometimes fail to show some cargo of a transport in the unit selection dialog, due to the server not sending correct information after reloading a savegame
  • When the AI proposed a treaty, it could be sent in such a way as to cause the client to pop it up in front of other tabs, obscuring end-of-turn activities
  • Fix a corner case where a technology could be granted to a dead player due to changing research costs
  • Fix a server crash in rulesets with variable city map radius. This could manifest for instance if city radius depends on government
  • AI trait settings modified by Lua script were not correctly loaded from savefiles. They were saved correctly, so pre-existing savefiles are now loaded correctly
  • Fix a few remaining cases where a negative value for a boolean effect would erroneously enable it: ‘No_Diplomacy’ and ‘Happiness_To_Gold’
  • See changelog for full details
