CM-SS13 codebase


Build Status

This is the codebase for the CM-SS13 flavoured fork of SpaceStation 13

Space Station 13 is a paranoia-laden round-based roleplaying game set against the backdrop of a nonsensical, metal death trap masquerading as a space station, with charming spritework designed to represent the sci-fi setting and its dangerous undertones. Have fun, and survive! CM-SS13 has wildly adapted this idea into a strategic roleplay-based team deathmatch game.

❗ How to compile ❗

On 2022-04-06 we have changed the way to compile the codebase.

The quick way. Find bin/server.cmd in this folder and double click it to automatically build and host the server on port 1337.

The long way. Find bin/build.cmd in this folder, and double click it to initiate the build. It consists of multiple steps and might take around 1-5 minutes to compile. If it closes, it means it has finished its job. You can then set up the server normally by opening colonialmarines.dmb in DreamDaemon.

Building colonialmarines in DreamMaker directly is now deprecated and might produce errors, such as 'tgui.bundle.js': cannot find file.
