Imperialism Remake 0.1.2
The aim of this project is to create a free (open source, OS independent) remake of the classic SSI game Imperialism. While the spirit and many concepts of the original should be preserved, it should not become a pure copy but advance the concept in a sense that modern elements of strategic games are included, e.g. of the Civilization series. The game is written in Java using Swing for the user interface. The philosophy is to keep it as simple as possible, use standard/well tested libraries wherever possible and to demand clean, understandable code.
This release added a Windows launcher that checks for the correct version of Java and a Windows installer, and has been successfully tested under Linux. Background music composed was added. The map was improved with borders, cities, rivers, and provinces. Diverse artwork was provided for the terrain and the start screen. There were many small changes
