Please be aware that the 2.1.9 download is source code. Anyone who wants to play this version needs to either compile it themselves, or use a package manager. (The Mac version of Fink, for instance.) The most recent version that is available as a pre-compiled binary appears to be 2.1.6.

I tested version 2.2.2 with OSX 10.6.4 and XQuartz 2.5.2. Unfortunately it doesn't work (you have to do a sudo chmod 755 /opt/com.bitaxis/bin/freeciv-gtk2).

Can't set tax rate, which stinks, because after a certain point, you need to.

Great Game! However, it has a showstopper. It won't save or load your locally played games. Nothing is more frustrating than playing for an hour, saving, and coming back later to load it when you see that no saved game exists. This is a known bug on OS X Intel since August 5, 2007. The developers need to work on that. A game that doesnt save or load. Ugh!

Thank you so much for this great game! It is almost like Civilization, really. I love the network playing. The graphics are very good as well, just try it. Although it is an X11, and there is no doubt that this would be the only way to develop such a tremendous Game. Thanks a lot. AND BESIDES: LET X11 TAKE SOME TIME ON LOADING, IT IS INITIALIZING AND THUS TAKES A BIT TIME ON THE FIRST STARTUP.

on my powerbook with 10.4.1 and no firewalls active, server seems to run OK but clients are broken perhaps- once run, no menu options can be chosen, only thing to do with them is force-quit.

This is a great game. A few servers I tried didn't work, but at last one worked (JAIST). Wow!! This game reminds me a lot of Civ2. Perhaps it's missing some videos and shnazzy stuff, but hey, it is free! Back when I played 1.4 or something like that it was really not worth playing, but 2.0 has great features and runs nicely. My only complaint is that the music or lack there of stinks.

I like this copied concept of a game. However, how can I play the game by myself and not ONLINE?
