DESCRIPTION

       This manual page documents briefly the pioneers-server-console command.

       Pioneers is an implementation of the popular,  award-winning  "Settlers
       of  Catan"  board  game  for  the GNOME desktop environment.  It uses a
       client/server model  for  networked  play  of  between  two  and  eight
       players.   This  program  provides  a console-only server that pioneers
       clients can connect to.

OPTIONS

       -a port     Listen for administrative commands on port port.

       -c num      Start up num computer players.

       -g name     Load the ruleset specified by name.

       -k secs     Automatically stop the server if no one has connected after
                   secs seconds.

       -m metaserver
                   Register  this  server with the metaserver at the specified
                   address.

       -n hostname Use this hostname  instead  of  the  hostname  reported  by
                   hostname(1).

       -P num      Start  a  game  for  num  total players (including computer
                   players).

       -p port     Use port port for player connections.

       -R [0|1|2]  "Sevens rule": Specify  gameplay  behavior  when  a  player
                   rolls  a  seven.   A  value  of  0 (the default) means that
                   rolling a seven always moves the  robber.   A  value  of  1
                   requires  the player to re-roll if a seven is rolled on the
                   first two turns.  A value of 2 means the player always  re-
                   rolls.

       -r          Register with a meta server.  The meta server to use can be
                   overriden with the -m option.

       -s          Don’t start the game immediately; wait for a command on the
                   admin port (-a) instead.

       -T [0|1]    Choose  a  terrain type: 0 for the default, or 1 for random
                   terrain.

       -t mins     Tournament mode: add AI players after mins minutes.

       -v points   Specify the number of "victory points" required to win  the
                   game.

       -x          Automatically exit after a player has won.

ENVIRONMENT

       The default settings of the server can be influenced with the following
       three environment variables:

       PIONEERS_META_SERVER
              The hostname of the meta-server when no meta-server is specified
              on the command-line.

       PIONEERS_SERVER_NAME
              The  hostname  of the server.  If it is not set, the hostname is
              determined by hostname(1).

       PIONEERS_DIR
              The path to the game definition files.  If it is  not  set,  the
              default installation path will be used.

FILES
