Projects / Lincity


Lincity is an SVGALIB (Linux only) and X based city/country simulation game for Linux and other Unix platforms (Solaris, FreeBSD, HP_UX, AIX, SCO and IRIX). There is also a Win32 version (win95 and NT) available as a separate package. The game reminds a bit of SimCity but has it's own goals and methods to get there.

    Release Notes: This release creates a modules subdirectory with individual sources for each game module (e.g. farms, residences). It improves the MPS subsystem in concordance with splitting modules from engine.c and various other places. All drawing is now handled in mps.c; setup functions are removed and replaced by all encompassing module_mps() routine. A patch was added to support true-color displays with xpicedit. There were also miscellaneous code cleanups.
