Towns 0.16 released (Soldiers & Goblins)


Towns 0.16 it's ready to download.

- Add: Soldiers
- Add: Barracks (each one allows you to convert 5 civilians into soldiers)
- Add: More info in the upper bar (level/civilians/soldiers, day/month/year)
- Add: "Room style" dungeons
- Add: Goblins and Goblin leaders
- Change: Wheat farms can't be built underground
- Change: Builders wait until cells are free to finish the building (avoiding stoned citizens)
- Change: Number of messages in message panel was raised to 1024 (from 128)
- Fix: The hole tile in digged terrains isn't drawed if terrain has fluids

This version comes with 50 citizens.
Soldiers are frenzy citizens. They search and try to kill all discovered enemies.

Build armor and weapons, equip some citizens and convert it to soldiers (you need barracks to do so).
Try to kill every enemy (spiders and goblins) in the whole map.

Hope you like it.

Hi, there are again some problems with the linux build.
This is the output:

Oh, dammit!

Are you sure that the older versions works in Linux? Because I don't changed anything from launcher.

I'll investigate what's happening. It seems that Java can't find the xaos.Towns class that, for sure, it's inside the xaos.jar file.

I recall that it launched correctly in version 1.3

Instead of run the can you execute this line directly?

java -cp .:./lib/lwjgl.jar:./lib/lwjgl_util.jar:./xaos.jar -Djava.library.path=./lib/native/ -Dsun.java2d.opengl=false -Duser.language=en xaos.Towns

testblog said...

Yes this works!

Keep on going with the good work!

Nice to read you. I'll investigate about how the environment variables works in Linux because, the line that I said to you it's the same line that launchs.

Thanks for the feedback
