SimCity Source Code Released to the Wild! Let the ports begin...

QUOTE

The code won't have reference to any SimCity name as that has all be renamed to Micropolis.
Micropolis was the original working title of the game and since EA requires that the GPL open source version
not use the same name as SimCity (to protect their trademark) a little work had to be done to the code.

There's been changes to the original system like a new splash screen, some UI feedback from QA, etc.
The plane crash disaster has been removed as a result of 9/11.


Can we say SimXity? or Mixropolis? biggrin.gif

I wonder if this source is for the 16 color dos version,
I always preferred the Atari ST version because it was much nicer to look at.

Whilst it's always good for a game's source code to be released, I do have to wonder if it's worthwhile anyone porting this to the XBox, if the ST version, or any other that can be emulated on the XBox, is better. Surely any potential porter would be better off porting something that isn't otherwise available on the XBox?

OpenSource SimCity clone. Much better in my opinion.

I think it would be a great port I just hope that the scene shows enough interest in it, it seems since 360 launched that the xbox1 scene has slowly diminished o well I'd rather see AVP Gold at this point but I'll settle for sim city jester.gif lol. Hopefully someone will pick it up dry.gif
