freeciv

Archived from groups: alt.games.the-sims (More info?)

If this has already been mentioned here I apologize. Open source creators
have released freeciv, a civilization type clone. Not only is it free in
terms of price, the code is freely available as well for those who might
like to look under the hood. It is really quite good.

    Are you using Windows? If so, download a file that ends in .exe. The
    ..bz2 files aren't really meant for Windows users.

    You probably want the Freeciv-2.0.0-win32-setup.exe file if you use XP.
