Raspberry PI – FreeCiv Server install

From freeciv.org:

Freeciv is a Free and Open Source empire-building strategy game inspired by the history of human civilization. The game commences in prehistory and your mission is to lead your tribe from the Stone Age to the Space Age…

These instructions are for installing and running a freeciv server on the raspberry pi. It works surprisingly well.

#Install the files

  • sudo apt-get install -y freeciv-server freeciv-client-gtk

#Start the server

  • freeciv-server

#done. no really, thats it.

Server options: http://freeciv.wikia.com/wiki/Server_Manual

#now grab a game client and connect to the PI’s ip


connect to freecivplayer listgame is working


One thought on “Raspberry PI – FreeCiv Server install

  1. I got this far 🙂 Is there a way to make the server run as a “service”, so that you don’t have to manually connect to the server and start it up each time you want to play?
