How do I install Micropolis/SimCity?

Postby edwardXXII on Sun Mar 08, 2009 8:21 am

Hello, I've just tried to install Micropolis but I didn't know how to do it...
I took a look at http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Micropolis and downloaded the file Micropolis-8.xo.
I thought i could open it with MinInstall oder Synaptic, but only the archivemanager could open it. Now I'm asking myself how to install this game... Could anyone please give me a hint?

You have to extract it from the archive.It's not a .deb archive so you can't use gdebi.i downloaded it myself to have a looksee and this is what the archive contains.

activity cities images manual Micropolis.png res
bin COPYING __init__.py micropolisactivity.py README

i'm no expert but perhaps someone will be able to direct you further.

thx a lot distoaddict! (even if this didn't help me so far..) :)
i've found another simcity-clone called "opencity" by searching for simcity at synaptic.
i will take a look at this one at first and only if i don't like it i will try to install micropolis again.
EDIT: oh! i see, there are a lot of simcity-clones out there, if you search for them... :D "lincity" seems to be also a very good city-simulation.
