Hi everyone! I'd like to help implement borders for the countries in
freeciv (assuming this isn't already being taken care of). This is my
first time contributing to a free software project, so any and all support
would be most appreciated. I have a few questions:
How should the borders be calculated, does anyone have any ideas for the
Should the borders be coloured like in Alpha Centauri, and if so where
would the national colours be found?
Is this already done (I saw borders.jpg in the incoming FTP)?
My own thoughts on calculating the borders would be that each nation has a
particular level of claim on each square, which is based on its proximity
to cities (within a certain range, say 10 squares), and the nation with
the highest claim to the square owns it. I have an idea of how to do this,
but it's difficult for me to put into words (I tried, it wasn't pretty :)).
I've familiarised myself with the hacker's guide, and I'm starting to try
to write something for borders into the code now, but I'd really
appreciate some feedback. Sorry about my newbieness.
