lincity [-w] [-R red-gamma] [-G green-gamma] [-B blue-gamma] [-m mode]
xlincity [-v] [-g geometry] [-d] [-r] [-w] [-R red-gamma] [-G green-gamma] [-B blue-gamma]
-w Use a gamma correction for the graphic with the values 1.0 for red, 0.0 for green
and 0.4 for blue.
Please note: The gamma values used are not a gamma correction in the traditional
way. Just check it out.
-R red The value for the gamma correction for red color-part. This option takes a floating
The value for the gamma correction for green color-part. This option takes a float‐
ing point argument.
The value for the gamma correction for blue color-part. This option takes a float‐
ing point argument.
Set the VGA mode. This option is ignored on X Windows. The choices for modes are:
lincity -m 10 ## mode 10, 640x480
lincity -m 11 ## mode 11, 800x600
lincity -m 12 ## mode 12, 1024x768
lincity -m 13 ## mode 13, 1280x1024
-v Be verbose on startup (this tells the lincity version).
Specify the X11 geometry argument. E.g. use -g +0+0 to put the window to the upper
left corner on startup.
-d Perform pix doubling. Pix doubling renders each pixel as a 2 x 2 square, which has
the effect of making the game appear twice as large on the screen. This option
only applies to the X Windows version.
-r Add an extra border around the game. This option only applies to the X Windows
Lincity is a city/country simulation game running with SVGA graphics on a Linux console or
in an X11 window under Linux and other platforms.
You are required to build and maintain a city. You must feed, house, provide jobs and
goods for your residents. You can build a sustainable economy with the help of renewable
energy and recycling, or you can go for broke and build rockets to escape from a pollution
ridden and resource starved planet, it's up to you. Due to the finite resources available
in any one place, this is not a game that you can leave for long periods of time.
