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 game title
                   Load the ruleset specified by game title. The title can be found in the *.game
                   files. You need quotes for titles with spaces.

       -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. Default meta sever: pioneers.debian.net

       -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

       /usr/share/games/pioneers/*.game and $XDG_DATA_HOME/pioneers/*.game
              Game definitions
