       pioneers-editor - Editor for the Pioneers boardgame


       pioneers-editor [filename]


       This manual page documents briefly the pioneers-editor 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
       pioneers-server-gtk  or pioneers-server-console to play.  An AI client,
       pioneersai, is also available.

       Pioneers-editor can be used to create new board layouts.   Clicking  on
       the  plus  and  minus  signs on the side of the board will increase and
       decrease the board size respectively.  Left clicking on a  tile  allows
       to  select the terrain type; Middle or right clicking allows setting of
       the chit number or port type and orientation.  The chit number can also
       be set by pressing the number key(s) while the pointer is hovering over
       the tile.

       In the settings tab, several game settings can be adjusted.


       Games created with pioneers-editor can be played with  pioneers-server-
       gtk  and  pioneers-server-console,  if they are installed in the global
       game directory.  Alternatively,  they  can  be  played  with  pioneers-
       server-console, by using the --file option.


       Pioneers-editor  accepts  the  standard GTK+/GNOME commandline options.
       See pioneers-editor --help for details.


              Global game files.   Games  which  are  installed  here  can  be
              selected by title, and played from pioneers-server-gtk.


       Pioneers  allows  no-setup  nodes,  where  settlements cannot be placed
       during the setup phase.  Pioneers-editor is not able to set such nodes.
       As  a workaround, they can be added manually to the game file as a last
       editing step.
