Synopsislincity [-w] [-R red-gamma] [-G green-gamma] [-B blue-gamma] [-m mode]
xlincity [-v] [-g geometry] [-d] [-r] [-w] [-R red-gamma] [-G green-gamma] [-B blue-gamma]
Use a gamma correction for the graphic with the values 1.0 for red, 0.0
for green and 0.4 for blue.
Please note: The gamma values used are not a gamma correction in the traditional way. Just check it out.
- -R red
- The value for the gamma correction for red color-part. This option takes a floating point argument.
- -G green
- The value for the gamma correction for green color-part. This option takes a floating point argument.
- -B blue
- The value for the gamma correction for blue color-part. This option takes a floating point argument.
- -m mode
Set the VGA mode. This option is ignored on X Windows.
The choices for modes are:
lincity -m 10 ## mode 10, 640x480
lincity -m 11 ## mode 11, 800x600
lincity -m 12 ## mode 12, 1024x768
lincity -m 13 ## mode 13, 1280x1024
- Be verbose on startup (this tells the lincity version).
- -g geom
- Specify the X11 geometry argument. E.g. use -g +0+0 to put the window to the upper left corner on startup.
- Perform pix doubling. Pix doubling renders each pixel as a 2 x 2 square, which has the effect of making the game appear twice as large on the screen. This option only applies to the X Windows version.
- Add an extra border around the game. This option only applies to the X Windows version.
DescriptionLincity is a city/country simulation game running with SVGA graphics on a Linux console or in an X11 window under Linux and other platforms.
You are required to build and maintain a city. You must feed, house, provide jobs and goods for your residents. You can build a sustainable economy with the help of renewable energy and recycling, or you can go for broke and build rockets to escape from a pollution ridden and resource starved planet, it's up to you. Due to the finite resources available in any one place, this is not a game that you can leave for long periods of time.
