> If the tech upkeep is shared and paid only once per team [...] There's the rub. Looking at the code, I think currently you get a random team member's cities multiplied by the number of team members(!) -- see bug #22058. Making the obvious change to tech_upkeep_calc() would make upkeep the number of cities in the team * the number of team members, which is too much (penalises big teams). Depending on how bug #22058 turns out, no further code change may be necessary to get the behaviour we want. In the meantime, I fear we have to declare the combination of team_pooled_research and tech_upkeep irretrievably broken, and just remember that this is the behaviour we want from tech_upkeep_style "Cities" when we get round to fixing it. (Since team_pooled_research is enabled by default, that means civ2civ3 team games will not do the right thing. And we keep finding other bugs when team_pooled_research is _disabled_.) Accordingly, dumping this on the "player research" metaticket for now. _______________________________________________________ Reply to this item at: <http://gna.org/bugs/?22158> _______________________________________________ Message sent via/by Gna! http://gna.org/ _______________________________________________ Freeciv-dev mailing list Freecivfirstname.lastname@example.org https://mail.gna.org/listinfo/freeciv-dev
