Follow-up Comment #3, bug #17949 (project freeciv): The minimum size is not mentioned in the Help and is not part of the definition of celebration.
"Cities with three or more citizens celebrate when at least half their citizens are happy and none remain unhappy. The effects of celebration vary depending on your government type; in the default ruleset: - Under Anarchy or Despotism, you will not suffer the normal production penalty for tiles which produce more than 2 points of any resource (food, production, or trade)." I had always thought that the minimum size was for *rapture*, not celebration. I'm reasonably certain I've applied celebration to cities of size 1 or 2 in the past, and have gotten the Despotism penalties removed that way. Typically this is accomplished by founding the capital in a high production location, researching Pottery as the 1st tech and building the Hanging Gardens in the capital to take advantage of the 75% production bonus of the capital under Despotism. Perhaps the rule is misnamed in the ruleset, but the code used to check the rule "before rapture." Now it's checking "before celebration." I think the rule should be named rapture_size_limit and should be handled accordingly. _______________________________________________________ Reply to this item at: <http://gna.org/bugs/?17949> _______________________________________________ Message sent via/by Gna! http://gna.org/ _______________________________________________ Freeciv-dev mailing list Freecivfirstname.lastname@example.org https://mail.gna.org/listinfo/freeciv-dev
