Forums: Index > Creative Contents > Basic Questions About Creating Governments

I'm new to this site, and new to freeciv but I love civ2 and I think it's great that freeciv allows players to contribute to this great game. I'd like to start working on a custom ruleset based on the civ2 rules, but with some additions and changes I think are pretty good ideas. One of the things I'd like to do is add one or two new government types to the game, which leads to my question.

I looked around the freeciv site for a while and found information about how to customize existing governments, but I didn't see it written anywhere that it's possible to create an entirely new one in addition to all those that exist. Is that possible?

As far as I know all you have to do is edit the ruleset. So copy a ruleset dir and go edit goverments.ruleset and effects.ruleset (mind you, editing effects.ruleset is a lot of work) --Tjal 10:09, February 18, 2010 (UTC)

But will that actually let me add entirely new governments without replacing old ones?

yes--Tjal 14:25, February 18, 2010 (UTC)

Ok, thanks. Do you know someone else who did something similar to what I want to do whose example I can follow? 20:02, February 18, 2010 (UTC)Xanthophyll

maybe you can look here modpacks and of course Editing_rulesets--Tjal 11:41, February 19, 2010 (UTC)
