UPDATE 07.04.2015 22:47: I just published a new release with some bug-fixes.
I’m happy to announce that the source code of our Settlers 3 remake is now fully available on GitHub. The repository can be found at https://github.com/jsettlers/settlers-remake. Please read the README.md for an installation guideline and a developer guide, if you want to assist the development. There you can also download the first alpha release of the game.
Before you start the game, have a brief look at the manual, as there are some extra features in the UI, you should now about.
Also note that you will need to have an original version of “The Settlers 3” installed on your computer, as this game is using the original graphics and sounds.
- This game is only in an alpha status! So be aware of bugs, missing features (no AI, only Romans playable, missing buildings…), an “unfinished” UI and frequent code changes possibly breaking your savegames. I’m looking forward to your reports and help in improving this game!
- I’m still looking for a good name and I’m open for your (serious) proposals.
- When following the installation instructions for JSettlers, you will also get the Map Editor installed. Feel free to design great maps and send them to me / commit them to the repository.
- I will try to update / improve the documentation more and more. If you have a special request / see a certain need, let me know!
Best regards, have fun with the game + many thanks for your patience!
