       lincity-ng - City simulator game with polished graphics


       lincity-ng [options]


       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

       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.
