To update a tileset from 2.6 to 2.90.99 (will be 3.0 in the future) you must add some new graphics and update the file format strings. Currently these instructions go up to compatibility with freeciv trunk revision 29663.

The .tilespec file

  • Set format of .tilespec file to options = "+Freeciv-tilespec-Devel-YYYY.MMM.DD" during development. For freeciv 3.0 options = "+Freeciv-3.0-tilespec" should be used.
  • minimap_intro_file (also called the 'radar graphics') is no longer supported. Simply remove minimap_entry_file entry out from the tilespec, if you have it.
