Description [fr]

Un portage informatique du jeu de société "Les Colons de Catane", par la Pioneers Team.

Pioneers est un portage informatique du jeu de société "Les Colons de Catane" (de Klaus Teuber).

Les Colons de Catane est un jeu ayant rencontré un vif succès pour sa simplicité, sa convivialité (par l'échange de ressources) et à sa profondeur tactique et stratégique. Il laisse une part non négligeable au hasard car la distribution des matières premières aux joueurs est conditionnée par un jet de dés. Le but est d'atteindre un certain nombre de points avant vos adversaires.
Chaque joueur construit villes et routes et dispose de colons et soldats en fonction de ses ressources, ce qui lui rapporte des points.

Description [en]

Pioneers is a GNOME game based upon the board game Settlers of Catan created by Mayfair Games. Pioneers was originally authored by Dave Cole in the spring and summer of 1999, under the name Gnocatan. Dave wanted to be able to play the game without having to travel, so he developed a computer implementation of the game. The Pioneers project stalled in the late summer of 1999 and saw little development until the early spring of 2000 when the project was taken over by Andy Heroff and moved to SourceForge. Andy recruited several developers (including Dave) and they improved upon the original game as well as fixed bugs that have been found in older versions.

After summer 2002 the Pioneers project lay dormant again, when in summer 2003 Bas Wijnen found some security bugs, and started programming new features. A little later he was joined by Roland Clobus. Bas made the split between the core code and the user interface, while Roland was working on the user interface.

In June 2005 the project was renamed from Gnocatan to Pioneers.
