    Cities3d - Open source Settlers of Catan game

    I know I can't be the only one here that's interested in a Settlers of Catan game. So I was wondering if anyone could get this game compiled on Ubuntu. I'm afraid I don't have the skills to know what to do with this. I've compiled code before, but those times the code was in a nice .gz archive and I did the ./configure, make, make install dance.

    Thanks,

    Hi, I only discovered "Settlers of Catan" this weekend...

    BUT what an awesome board game!!! Needless to say, I want this for my Ubuntu Laptop, I did a search and guess what, you can install it directly from your repositories!!! The game is called "Pioneers", and this is the official home of Pioneers: http://pio.sourceforge.net/

    Cheers, and enjoy.

    A Linux version of Cities Online (Cities3D) is now available for download.

    Can't wait to test when I get home. I hate the fact I have a WinXP VM, just to play Sea3D

    If you like settlers and board games in general I recommend BrettSpielWelt (http://www.brettspielwelt.de/?nation=en). They have a Linux client and a lot of board games!

    Cities3D was recently uploaded to Github and is 100% open source. Not sure if the code is any newer than the semi playable 0.9.7 version.

    I really don't know why this hasn't been adopted as the default Linux Settlers clone. I just tried playing Pioneers and while it works ok, it leaves much to be desired in gameplay.
