pioneers-editor - Editor for the Pioneers boardgame
This manual page documents briefly the pioneers-editor
Pioneers is an implementation of the popular, award-winning "Settlers of
Catan" board game for the GNOME desktop environment. It uses a
client/server model for networked play of between two and eight players. You
will need to connect to a machine running either pioneers-server-gtk
to play. An AI client, pioneersai
can be used to create new board layouts. Clicking on the
plus and minus signs on the side of the board will increase and decrease the
board size respectively. Left clicking on a tile allows one to select the
terrain type; Middle or right clicking allows one to set the chit number or
port type and orientation. The chit number can also be set by pressing the
number key(s) while the pointer is hovering over the tile.
In the settings tab, several game settings can be adjusted.
Games created with pioneers-editor can be played with pioneers-server-gtk and
pioneers-server-console, if they are installed in the global game directory.
Alternatively, they can be played with pioneers-server-console, by using the
Pioneers-editor accepts the standard GTK+/GNOME commandline options. See
Global game files. Games which are installed
here can be selected by title, and played from pioneers-server-gtk.
