  • Freeciv for Android as beta-download

    Freeciv can now be played on Android smart phones. Freeciv is a turn based open source version of the classic game Civilization.

    The polish developer Michal "Zielmicha" Zielinski is working on a Freciv version for Android devices. However, his Freeciv port is not complete yet, but curious strategy fan can already test it.


    The last prerelease version 1.0.2 was relased at the end of October. It contains a first support for diplomacy and a faster scolling over the game map. Additionally, a memory problem was fixed and an autoupdate fuction was added.

    The prerelease version of Freeciv for Android is still published by Zielmicha on his own website and cannot be downloaded from the Android Market. In the Android Market, Michal Zielinski already distributes two free games: Funnyboat and Space Shooter.

    The free turn based strategy game Freeciv is available for the opertaing systems Solaris, Linux, BSD, Unix, AmigaOS, Mac OS X, and Windows. And now also for Android.

  • Take-Two Builds 'Civilization' Game for South Korea
    by Ming
    From Today's Wall Street Journal By IAN SHERR Take-Two Interactive Software Inc. is developing a new version of "Civilization," one of its most storied franchises, featuring interconnected virtual worlds in which players compete.

The New York company—best known for its "Grand Theft Auto" and "Borderlands" franchises—is the latest of a bevy of large U.S. game companies attempting to embrace the fast-growing Asian markets, where gaming consoles such as Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox and Sony Corp.'s PlayStation 3 barely have a presence. Instead, gamers there typically play on a personal computer at home or in Internet cafes....

So as always, I ran into my biggest annoyance with GalCiv - the silly star names. And once again, having lost the original version, I built a new "real" star names file. Thought I'd share in case anyone is interested:
