thanks for the suggestions guys :)


The workers, when you assign them, you are actually assigning a worker to a task that comes in, so when that person leaves, the place you assigned him to, actually loses a worker, so its not random, perhaps not the best way to do it tho.


also, the high crime is because you are not protecting their houses with guard towers


the height issue, I could maybe take it down a bit less than 768, but I woudln't want to go down to 800x600, just not enough UI space.  Of course a resolution chooser would be the ultimate answer.

As for the tutorial, that is def going to be the first thing I add, guess the 'hovers' were no where near as helpful as I thought they would be :(  Just waiting for them to say it compiles on their judge's vm before I add new features :)

Here is a link to a windows build for my entry, Villages, I can't find a way to get cmake to get an all-in-one download for linux (you need to have all 4 SDL packages installed to run), so I didn't bother to provide that.  If you know a solution to my problem, please let me know!

 EDIT:  Now have windows and linux downloads!

I think I fixed the problem botanic.  Would it be possible for you to do a repull from my git repo?

I've made a few commits since I submitted, but they have only been to the cmake file and the text files (COPYING etc) that the LPC required (COPYING etc were in the zip file I submitted, but I had not commited them before to the repo) There have been no 'code' C++ etc changes.

the cmake changes are 1) it copies over the title.mp3 file to the build directory's data/music folder (title.mp3 is already there in the main data/music folder), and of course 2) hopefully *crosses fingers* fixes the build issues you were having.  The changes I made for (2) let me build it on my copy of your vm at least.


if doing the above would be against the rules, I can either re-post with the new cmake file attached, or even outline the exact lines that need to be changed in the cmake file :)

also, maybe this will help with villages:


sudo apt-get install libsdl1.2-dev libsdl-image1.2-dev libsdl-mixer1.2-dev libsdl-ttf2.0-dev

I tried running your Ubuntu vm, but it just sits on a black screen

For Villages: -Have SDL 1.2 installed in the 'default' location ( Have SDL-image installed -
- have SDL-ttf installed -
- have SDL_mixer installed -

-Install CMake (

- Extract
- Open CMake
- For the path to source, use the base directory of the villages directory (ie, this directory has the src, assests, data, etc folders)
- For the build directory, choose the build/linux/ directory
- Click the compile button
- Select Unix Makefiles
- Keep 'Use default native compilers' option selected
- click Finish

If you installed SDL in the base directory, all the paths should auto-resolve. If for some reason they do not, then you will have to browse for the proper paths.

- Click Generate

Navigate to the build/linux directory with a command line

*note, as part of the cmake generate command, the data/ folder should have been copied in here*

- use the make command with no additional parameters

* there are a few warnings, but there should be no errors*

- Execute Villages
