pioneers - network implementation of Settlers of Catan


pioneers [ --server server ] [ --port port ] [ --name name ]


This manual page documents briefly the pioneers command. Pioneers is an implementation of the popular, award-winning "Settlers of Catan" board game for the GNOME desktop environment. It uses a client/server model for networked play of between two and eight players. You will need to connect to a machine running either pio‐ neers-server-gtk or pioneers-server-console to play. An AI client, pioneersai, is also available.


Pioneers accepts the standard GTK+/GNOME commandline options, and the following options: -s, --server server Hostname of the server -p, --port port Portname of the server -n, --name name Use this name for the player instead of the name in the settings file -v, --spectator Connect as spectator instead of as a player -m, --metaserver metaserver Connect to this metaserver instead of the metaserver in the settings file --debug Turn on debugging mode --version Show the version and quit When the server and port are both provided, the client automatically quits when the con‐ nection is broken.


The default settings can be influenced with the following environment variable: PIONEERS_METASERVER The hostname of the metaserver. If it is not set, the default metaserver will be used.
