For some reason I can not get my nation switched to AI.  It switches in the Nations tab, but nothing happens.  Do I have to click something to get it moving?

What is your timeout setting? AI does not get rampant with timeout 0 (no timeout), but you need to set timeout to the value you want it to wait between turns. Debug builds of freeciv support special timeout value -1 which makes ai to go rampant, with human having no possibility to give any input to the server (you can give single ctrl-C for it to switch to timeout 0) --Cazfi (talk) 08:40, September 26, 2013 (UTC)
Where is the timeout setting?
It's a server setting. Quickest way to set it from client is via chat-line: "/set timeout 5" (try also "/explain timeout")
Checking options menu.... yes, it's also there: Game -> Options -> Remote Server -> Internal -> Maximum seconds per turn. (That "Remote Server" thing in the menu get me thinking... should we change it to something else as in single-player games the server is not that remote but runs locally, on the same computer) --Cazfi (talk) 20:10, September 26, 2013 (UTC)
