Playing LT30 as Koreans

It’s been a while since my English nation and United Earth in LT30 was invaded and mostly conquered. However England is indeed still alive and part of the worldwide nations fighting against the same common enemy. Sadly only England and Finns were able to escape from our homeland of United Earth but the resistance still continues. Westminster sadly was conquered, too.

However I’ve found a new home from the Noobish Squad playing Korean empire as a regent for Steelsk. Since I am part of their alliance now I cannot blog as openly as I’ve been writing. Although we have some videos coming up once I get permission to publish them.

One of my new passions playing Freeciv as Koreans was to setup an Intelligence Agency. Here’s a chart of my missions worldwide:

Playing these micro-missions each turn is actually more fun than I espected. Of course it would be even more fun if Freeciv supported this type of play better… but with little imagination, time and passion you can do a lot of things from the basic mechanism.

We also have a memorial wall:

Westminster is still holding

The British Empire is not RIP. We have not been stopped. Our great lands were flooded by belligerent and arrogant savages but that doesn’t break us. It makes us stronger.

The enemy has failed to conquer our capital and that capital is still standing at the same place. Some of our citizens have fleed to meet other friendly nations to join the arms as one coalition against this terrible threat.

You ask, What is our policy? I will say; “It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us: to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy.”

You ask, What is our aim? I can answer with one word: Victory—victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory there is no survival.

Things you can do when under attack from the Dark One itself…

…sorry, I mean superior double turning cheaters — sorry — I really mean just superior enemy.

  •  You can sell some buildings. Your enemy will anyway sell them, too. Good buildings to sell are Sewer Systems, Aquaducts, etc. You don’t need them if you are anyway loosing. Those buildings are only needed to grow your cities. You don’t need them to keep your cities that size.
  • Use spies to steal from conquered enemy cities. Even if you’re not going to use the techs, you can help someone else to survive by giving it to them. For return you probably get lots of gold — you are really going to need all of it, too!
  • Use some of your units to pillage roads before the enemy advances further

Please let me know if you know more things to do. :-)

(Yes, I am under an attack from KG, Terror, dt0r, maho, etc. Actually we all are in LT30 if you didn’t know it already.)

Update: To clarify the term cheating: I call it cheating to build roads under one minute before turn change and then using them right after to conquer cities. It’s abuse of the original game system. It just hasn’t been fixed in the server (yet). However it looks like this type of abuse is normal business in Longturn games. (It’s btw forbidden in our Finnish game rules as is much of the other abuses Longturn allows.)
