lincity-ng - City simulator game with polished graphics
This manual page documents briefly the usage of lincity-ng lincity-ng is a City Simulation Game. It is a polished and improved version of the old LinCity game: You are required to build and maintain a city. You must feed, house, provide jobs and goods for your residents. You can build a sustainable economy with the help of renewable energy and recycling, or you can go for broke and build rockets to escape from a pollution ridden and resource starved planet, it's up to you. Due to the finite resources available in any one place, this is not a game that you can leave for long periods of time. This game is similar to the commercial simulation game with a similar name.
These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below. -h, --help Show summary of options. -v, --version Show version of program. -g, --gl Use the OpenGL display mode -s, --sdl Use the SDL display mode -w, --window Run lincity-ng in windowed mode -f, --fullscreen Run lincity-ng in fullscreen mode -m, --mute Turn off sound -S, --size specify screensize (eg. -S 1024x768) -q, --quick speficify how quick is the fast speed. (eg. -q 1 is the fastest possible with full animations, may heat hardware due to average 1 ms pause. -q 9 is the default 10ms pause) In -q 9 animation steps are skipped for speed. 1..8 do all animation steps in fast mode.
UPGRADE from 1.x to 2.x
A new format for saved games is used since 2.0, but old games can be imported and automagically converted. Just copy $HOME/.lincity/* (old location for lincity and lincity-ng 1.x) to $HOME/.lincity-ng/ (new location since 2.0). cp -a ~/.lincity/* ~/.lincity-ng/ At the start of the game, one message will popup to remind you have some changes to do in your city.
