Citybound is a really interesting project that deserves it's own thread really.

Looks very nice also.


The models are indeed great, but released only as (what I believe is) Unity format makes them almost useless for non-Unity games (which is the usual place for FLOSS games). Unless there is some converter from this format to .obj or any engine neutral one (which I'm unaware of).

(edit: misspelled)

Edit2: After request the author uploaded it (and also all other his works on OGA) in .FBX with textures :D

I sent an email across to the Energy Tycoon developer yesterday who told me I am free to use the art assets from that game in this as long as I credit Peter Schiessl who is the author of the work.

Please confirm that he is indeed fine with a proper license that is in effect what he means, i.e Creative Commons Attribution (CC-by). Otherwise you end up with a very unclear situation regarding the copyright status of those assets.

Here is another city builder called LinCity NG, which got stalled when they got hit by a shutdown of their repository host (twice!)

https://github.com/lincity-ng/lincity-ng

There are a few commits this year, so it's not completely dead yet.

Hello everyone, I have been given permission to license this under a creative commons license, what is the most appropriate CC license to use that is compatible with the GPL?

Code and assets are generally considered sufficiently separate that you don't need to worry too much about compatibility. But if you want to be on the safe side (IANAL):
CC-by and CC0 are compatible and the most recent CC-by-SA as well, see:
https://www.fsf.org/blogs/licensing/cre ... -version-3

Edit: cleaned thread of unnecessary trolling and responses to that.

Forked the original repository (https://github.com/chrishancox/opencity2) and updated the code to use SDL2 (and also removed all autogenerated files and binaries that were there) here: https://github.com/farrer/opencity2 .

Posted on this topic, as I'm not sure if the pull-request will be merged because the original repository seems inactive.

I believe the original github repository is almost the same that was in the sourceforge's SVN repository, but I couldn't compile either of them (that's why I forked the original github's and upgraded it to SDL2). In other words, there's a map generator, you can build things on the map, but the simulation is on (very?) early development stage... As far as I remember the latest - long ago - released version (0.0.6), the conversion to SDL2 is working without regressions.

As a side note, there's some good ideas there. Maybe a mixture of it with micropolis' code for simulation would achieve a playable game on relatively few time.

Farrer, I merged your patch. Sorry I don't have time for this any more - life gets in the way. It's nearly the same as the original source but with the new power plants basically. I didn't know how to upgrade it to SDL2 which is what caused me to give up (as well as having a full time job, wife, dog, etc)
