MIGUEL FARAH'S FREECIV STUFF
Freeciv is a FREE (released
under the GPL license) clone of the
classic Civilization and Civilization
This is where I keep my Freeciv-related stuff.
The map2xpm utility
map2xpm is a Perl script that receives a savefile as input and
writes an XPM image of the map, using the year as its filename. The XPM can
then be converted to a GIF (or other image format) using xpmtoppm
and ppmtogif. Animated GIFs can be created using
map2xpm can produce those images with a user-specified zoom level (an
integer number >= 1).
Here are some sample GIFs that map2gif produces:
Input: freeciv/data/scenario/earth-160x90-v2.sav (zoom level: 4)
Input: freeciv/data/scenario/europe-200x100-v1.sav (zoom level: 3)
Input: freeciv/data/scenario/europe-200x100-v2.sav (zoom level: 3)
As you can see, V1 maps have the rivers marked as a separate kind of
terrain, while V2 maps overlay the rivers against the terrain map. Both
kinds of maps are fully supported (unlike previous versions of map2xpm,
which supported rivers only in V1 maps).

The Iberian Peninsula scenario
This map reproduces the Iberian Peninsula (the landmass occupied by today's
Spain and Portugal) and the nearest regions. It's a 136x100 map, suitable
for at least 8 players. This map has been included in the Freeciv package
since 1.12.0, so you don't need to get it from here if you have that
version or a newer one.

The Hegemonian Nation ruleset
This ruleset describes the Human Hegemony fantasy nation, taken from Dan
Simmons' novels Hyperion and The Fall of
Hyperion. City names are taken from the Hegemony's major planets.

The Mare Infinitus modpack
This is a modpack loosely inspired in the polinesian islands and the
Mare Infinitus planet (described in detail in Dan Simmons'
Endymion). The maps in this modpack have a LOT of water and a
number of small islands (most of them sized at one square).
This modpack is currently in the initial stages of development. Please see
the Mare Infinitus page for up-to-date
