Since the previous release, we have implemented over 400 features, code cleanups and bug fixes. Build 20 features a new tribe – the Frisians – as well as four new campaign scenarios and a new “Barracks” building for recruiting soldiers. Also, the AI has been rewritten to use a genetic algorithm. The user interface comes with new features that make it easier to use, like map zoom, dropdown menus, a new ships list, and improved keyboard navigation. Build 20 also continues the behind the scenes cleanup, polish and modernization that was started with Build 19. There have been additional improvements to the stability and performance, as well as numerous bug-fixes.

Some years ago I've had a big open source craze and Widelands was one of the games I played a lot around that time. Great game, very much captured the spirit of Settlers 2.

Well recommended.

Strangely I've really been wanting to play Settlers 2 again at some point for a while now. Though need an older machine to run it these days.

Did someone just answer my prayers with this game?
