C-evo for Windows has been around for a while.
http://www.c-evo.org/

Its subsequently been ported to Linux.
http://www.c-evo.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=174

I have worked on the Debian packaging, fixed a few bugs, tweaked the graphics for the large tile size, and added some documentation and extra maps. Packages for Buster & Bullseye can be downloaded from the OBS here.
https://build.opensuse.org/package/show ... rBBB/c-evo


The game has a good on-line manual, with a separate menu link. The package includes a tutorial game and a 'HowTo' guide. These might be helpful for first time players.

Some useful info here too.

Thanks!
I wish someday SimCity4 would get a rework!

For many isn't gtk2 on the way out?

@OP: looks interesting, thanks for sharing. Lintian says you have a couple of unused overrides:
Code: Select all
$ for deb in c-evo* ; do echo $deb ; lintian $deb ; done         
c-evo-data_285+dfsg.6-3_all.deb
N: 0 tags overridden; 1 unused override
c-evo-gtk2_285+dfsg.6-3_amd64.deb
N: 2 tags overridden (2 info)
c-evo-stdai_285+dfsg.6-3_amd64.deb
N: 1 tag overridden (1 error); 1 unused override
c-evo_285+dfsg.6-3_amd64.deb
$

It's already EOL upstream: https://blog.gtk.org/2020/12/16/gtk-4-0/

But it will continue to be supported for Debian buster & bullseye: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... bug=947713

Which version of Lintian? They are used in v104.

These are for
package-contains-documentation-outside-usr-share-doc

C-evo uses loads of text data files, which are not documentation, and recent Lintians get very noisy!



Cheers,
