Version 0.6.0 released

This is the second release this year. The main features are as follows:

  • Plugin infrastructure
  • Plugin for minimal map
  • 4 additional cities (London, Bruges, Bergen and Novgorod)
  • Create and join a convoy
  • Sea map view
  • Travelling to different cities
  • Switching to another city
  • New Cathedral model
  • Cheat codes to add weapons on active ship and ship to current city.

Under the hood there were many improvements and bug fixes as well. Though this version is still tagged as alpha, which means there are bugs in there that we know of and probably quite a few that we don’t.

There were 100 tickets closed and the code base (only source code) has now more than 120’000 lines. Due to the new cathedral and additional data for the traveling feature this release has grown another 10MB to around 75MB.

From a user perspective the most comfortable features might be the native builds for Windows and Linux, which can be executed after unzipping the archive. In the Linux case the executable (OpenPatrician-0.6.0) may be made executable first (sudo chmod u+x OpenPatrician-0.6.0). In addition there is the plugin for the minimal map (only 8 cities) that can be downloaded and placed in the plugin folder (${user.home}/.OpenPatrician/plugins)

This version uses Java version 8, which is packaged with the native bundles, but must be installed for the bare bundle. This one can be extracted and run with

java -jar OpenPatricianDisplay-0.6.0-jfx.jar

The language can now also be selected as parameter at startup (en and de for now):

java -jar OpenPatricianDisplay-0.6.jfx.jar -lang de
