Description [en]

What is OpenCity ?

Once upon the time, I was travelling over the Internet, and I found a city simulator under linux called FreeReign at SourceForge. But it isn't maintained any more. I decided to push the game up so I had a look at the FreeReign sources. However, its codes were not obvious to me, and in addition the game design didn't fit my programming style. Finally, I decided to write my own free 3D city simulator, based on the original ideas of the FreeReign project. Few months later, OpenCity was born.

OpenCity is a full 3D city simulator game project. Contrary to popular on-line games such as roulette and flash games, you have to download it to your computer before playing. OpenCity is written in standard C++ with OpenGL and SDL from scratch. It is not intended to be a clone of any famous city simulator from Max*s. So, if you are looking to download a free SimCity 4 like, please forget OpenCity. I work on it at my spare time, and I really meant it "my spare time" !

OpenCity is also an OpenGL/SDL/C++ game programming tutorial. In the resources section, you can find the micro simulators' algorithm, design document, UML diagram and information about other issues. The UML diagram is edited with Umbrello, the free UML diagram editor for KDE.

Assez bien le graphisme n'égal pas encore d'autres jeux tel que Lincity-NG.
