Bug #660056

Huts don't appear on Glacier terrain

Description

I think it is a bug because Huts never appear on glacier terrain when the map is generated with fractal or random mode.
They can appear on glacier when generated with island based mode, but only near the coast (in my tests). However if I load an scenario with already generated map, then huts appear in glacier tiles without problems.
Tested with S2_6 and Trunk (rev 35506).

I was trying to use the hut system to place other extras in the map, but this behaviour makes it hard to balance.

mapgen.c:

/* Add a hut.  But not on a polar area, on an ocean, or too close to
     * another hut. */
if ((ptile = rand_map_pos_characteristic(WC_ALL, TT_NFROZEN, MC_NONE))) {

We could surely move this restriction to the ruleset.

  • Sprint/Milestone set to 3.0.0

  • Sprint/Milestone changed from 3.0.0 to 3.1.0

This is going to require quite a lot of work (dependency patches) to implement properly. Further, if we would make simplistic implementation now, it would be very hard to update to proper implementation in the future due without compatibility issues.

It's not about the terrain type "Glacier", but about the polar area.

#8 Updated by David Fernandez (bard) almost 4 years ago

I reported it in case it was a bug, but it is not really important.
It makes more sense if it is related to polar area rather than terrain type. I suppose it is not worth to change it.

#9 Updated by Marko Lindqvist about 2 months ago

  • Sprint/Milestone changed from 3.1.0 to 3.2.0

We can probably have a sensible fix now, with the Latitude requirements.
