Unknown Horizons 2014.1 is out, you can install/Update on Ubuntu 15.04 vivid Vervet, ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr (LTS), Ubuntu 13.10/13.04/12.04, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Elementary OS 0.2 Luna, Peppermint Five, Deepin 2014, LXLE 14.04, Linux Lite 2.0, Linux Lite 2.2 and other Ubuntu derivative systems via PPA

Unknown Horizons is a 2D realtime strategy simulation with an emphasis on economy and city building. Expand your small settlement to a strong and wealthy colony, collect taxes and supply your inhabitants with valuable goods. Increase your power with a well balanced economy and with strategic trade and diplomacy.

What New in Unknown Horizons Release 2014.1
  • Only expand settlement range for certain buildings
  • Color overlays (if running with FIFE 0.3.6 or newer)
  • Armory producing weapons
  • Button to fill lumberjack range with trees
  • Fixed some bad bugs causing the game to crash completely
  • Lots of other improvements
  • See changelog for more details about new features, improvements and fixed bugs & crashes
All in all, the new release Unknown Horizons 2014.1 provides a more stable gaming experience with new content and a bit of eye candy added as well. As some of you may have noticed already, there are several big changes happening around our engine FIFE right now. As a result of this, some new features (like the color overlays spotlighted above) are only available after a new engine release, or if you’re running a development snapshot. There is more work ahead to fully adopt our code to more of those changes, like replacing the currently used guichan library with its FIFE-maintained improved fork fifechan. Look forward to advanced text styling, many new cool widgets (e.g. for in-game statistics) and full UTF-8 support.
