>> this was tested and developed for FreeCiv 2.4.0 Beta1 and should work with that.
If u wish anyone to test it, make it working for 2.3.x maybe?
>> City after city, of Musketeers and Pikeman being able to seriously damage Armor and losing Cannons against Pikeman on hills/mountains is simply unacceptable as a game mechanic.
Welcome in real world.
Freeciv is just approximation of RL.
Do u think that some armors can't be faulty, and riding via hills is dangerous?
Do u think that pikeman in real world would be still pikeman, yeah it would be pikeman with AK47 ? For sure that pikeman will get weapon from sneaky Russia for free to hurt your civilization, or maybe from your own civilization by ppl who want to get richer.
Haven't u seen what advantage gives hill ? ( eg. see latest episode of spartacus - s03e08
, there is just basic concept, for sure there could be much more destructive tactics )
So for sure even warriors on hills should make high amount of damage to tanks.
>> fighter vs pikemans
Do u think those pikemans stand on top of hill and wait to be shot ?
I remember that on history lessons we watched some action form USA vs Japan.
The best action was when USA figter started from carrier and then something went wrong and he hit carrier, and it went down, buhahha, that's another way how green figters fly
>> The end result of the game is messy and drawn out, rather than quick and glorious.
Wars Russia vs Afghani or USA vs Vietnam was fast and victorious, right?
