This is the master setting that controls whether citizen migration is active in the game. If enabled, citizens may automatically move from less desirable cities to more desirable ones. The "desirability" of a given city is calculated from a number of factors. In general larger cities with more income and improvements will be preferred. Citizens will never migrate out of the capital, or cause a wonder to be lost by disbanding a city. A number of other settings control how migration behaves:

So for example if this setting is 5, citizens will look for a suitable migration destination every five turns from the founding of their current city. Migration will never occur the same turn that a city is built. This setting has no effect unless migration is enabled by the 'migration' setting.

Can be changed during a game.

Minimum: 1, Default: 5, Maximum: 100

Can be changed during a game.

Minimum: 0, Default: 50, Maximum: 100



mgr_worldchance - Percent probability for migration between foreign citiesEdit

NEW in freeciv 2.2

This setting controls how likely it is for migration to occur between cities owned by different players. Zero indicates migration will never occur, 100 means that citizens will always migrate if they find a suitable destination. This setting has no effect if migration is not enabled by the 'migration' setting.

Level: Rare.
Category: Sociological.

Minimum: 0, Default: 10, Maximum: 100



allowtake - Players that users are allowed to takeEdit

This should be a string of characters, each of which specifies a type or
status of a civilization (player). Clients will only be permitted to take or
observe those players which match one of the specified letters. This only

The characters and their meanings are:
    o,O = Global observer
    b   = Barbarian players
    d   = Dead players
    a,A = AI players

The first description on this list which matches a player is the one which
applies. Thus 'd' does not include dead barbarians, 'a' does not include
dead AI players, and so on. Upper case letters apply before the game has
started, lower case letters afterwards.

Each character above may be followed by one of the following numbers to
allow or restrict the manner of connection:

(none) = Controller allowed, observers allowed, can displace connections.
(Displacing a connection means that you may take over a player, even if
another user already controls that player.)

1 = Controller allowed, observers allowed, can't displace connections;

2 = Controller allowed, no observers allowed, can displace connections;
