Mac installer

Postby Dino the Dinosore » Sun Dec 31, 2017 4:09 am

Long time civ and freeciv player here, first time to contribute something back. I'm also a long time software developer, with much Mac experience, so I have figured out how to create an installer for the Mac. It installs a real Mac style 'freeciv.app' package with a freeciv icon image, and also installs all the other needed support files and libraries. I used a freeciv 2.5.9 binary that runs on Mac OS 10.11, so it should also run on anything newer. It's 65.3 MB in size. Need some help getting it to the right folks who can add it to the download webpage (http://www.freeciv.org/download.html).

Consider joining freeciv-dev mailing list https://www.freelists.org/list/freeciv-dev

It's currently quite quite, though, as we have not managed to get it integrated with the ticket system at hostedredmine.

Developers also hang at #freeciv-dev IRC channel at freenode.

See my latest post in Announcements. My installers for Mac users are now available, on http://freeciv.wikia.com/wiki/Install-MacOSX
Thanx to cazfi for the tip.
