Micropolis Unlimited

— a patched version of Micropolis. The Micropolis project is Free Open Source Software (FOSS) derived by permission from ancient code for a popular city simulation game whose name must not be mentioned.

This project starts from 2016-03-06 patched version of Micropolis source from: http://git.zerfleddert.de/cgi-bin/gitweb.cgi/micropolis

Current changes here are for debugging, so far.


To build and use, tested on Linux only:

  1. put the contents of this repo into a directory

  2. commands in a terminal emulator in that directory

$ cd src/
$ make clean
$ make install
$ cd ..
$ ./Micropolis

(Note: This "installs" the program only locally within its directory. The source apparently comes with some other ways to build and install and run it, but those would be more difficult to use.)


Dependencies:

The following files may be needed to build this version of Micropolis. If you try without a necessary file, a compiler error message should give a hint.
