Forums: Index > Playing Freeciv > Transforming ocean to swamp

Apparently it is possible to change ocean squares to land. But how you get your engineers onto the ocean square to get working? I tried pressing 'o' when on a transport and nothing happens... 09:01, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

You're on the right track. Does the square you're trying to transform meet the requirements? By default there need to be a certain minimum number of adjacent land squares (2 or 3? not sure) before this can work, so you can't raise a swamp from the deep ocean. (Similarly, you can't transform swamp into water unless there are some adjacent water squares.) -- JTN 23:04, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
Couldn't we Modify the Engineers into a next gen stage of transformation? Say Air Units?
Or have a rule in there where If you have a Corner to work with [ |x_ ] Where you can move X to the "Left" or "Down" onto the oceanic Square and be able to transform it. Where as if X on a corner 180 Degree's opposite of the example shown it cannot do so? Or do you need to be on an amphibious Transport?
