Revision Differences of Revision 14

Widelands is an open source (GPLed) real-time strategy game. It is built upon the SDL and other open source libraries and still under heavy development. If you knew Settlers I & II™ (© Bluebyte), then you already have a rough idea what Widelands is all about. Yes, it is where the inspiration for Widelands came from. ¶
## Status ¶

As stated before, Widelands is a work-in-progress game and, it seems, that it will ever be one. New features are added in each release. So, if you miss a feature, let us know. The current version has got at least these features: ¶

* Four Worlds (Tile Sets) (Greenland, Winterland, Blackland and Desert) ¶
* Three Tribes (Barbarians, Imperials and Atlanteans) ¶
* Several playable single player (tutorial) missions ¶
* Maps for single and multiplayer mode ¶
* Save and load of single and multiplayer games ¶
* Ability to build a settlement from scratch ¶
* Military and warfare (Attacking, Training, defending, conquering of military buildings) ¶
* A map editor, to build your own maps and campaigns ¶

We release beta versions ("builds") often, so that you can keep up with the state of the art all the time. Simply head over to the [[ Download | download section ]], and you'll find the newest release there. ¶
