pioneers - network implementation of Settlers of Catan
pioneers [ -s server ] [ --server server ] [ -p port ] [ --port port ] [ -n name ] [ --name name ]
This manual page documents briefly the pioneers 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. You will need to connect to a machine running either pioneers-server-gtk or pioneers-server-console to play. An AI client, pioneersai, is also available.
Pioneers accepts the standard GTK+/GNOME commandline options, and the following options: -s, --server server Hostname of the server -p, --port port Portname of the server -n, --name name Name of the player When the options are provided, the client automatically quits when the connection is broken.
The default settings can be influenced with the following environment variable: PIONEERS_META_SERVER The hostname of the meta-server. If it is not set, the default meta-server will be used.
DEVELOPERS AND TRANSLATORS
With the commandline option --language code the values of the environment variables LANGUAGE and LC_ALL can be overriden. The code should be one of the 2-letter language code pioneers understands.
