Oops, my trunk commit contains a lie about civ2civ3 rivers since I wrote it. Bug #22308.

  • If ruleset constructs allowing terrain-specific build times and/or bonuses are used, they are displayed in individual base or road help as a table, listing only those terrain where there is a build time or bonus. Otherwise, they go in the header.
  • Roads are included in the main "build time independent of terrain" alterations table.
  • Removed road time from main terrain alteration table.
    • Widened space for terrain names in shonky fixed-width tables from 10 to 12 characters. (Now enough for "Inaccessible", and may help some translations, but the Alien terrains are still badly mangled.)
  • Terrains where road and/or base building is prevented mention this in their help.

Patch #4521 will take away some text describing roads. It should probably come back under this ticket.

Terrain-dependent road and base times aren't visible in the online help. Probably they should be in the individual help item, like unit-specific veteran systems.

The "Road" column in the big table of times in the "Terrain Alterations" help is the raw road_time, which might not apply to the path called "Road", or to any path. Probably it should just be removed. (If not, renamed, and probably a similar column added for base_time.)

helpdata.txt still has a detailed description of the hardcoded road types in the "Terrain Alterations" section, which is no longer appropriate for all rulesets. Details should be moved to individual road help sections in rulesets, and modified as appropriate.

Terrain-independent road build times should be included in the "Time taken for the following activities is independent of terrain" table in "Terrain Alterations".

Maybe patch #3996 has addressed some of this?

Many of the changes since 2.4 will require changes to the online help. As well as individual sections for each road, the tables for terrain alterations etc will need some violence.
