Return to the Roots or RttR is an open source add-on type of remake of The Settlers II. This means it requires the original game files in order to work as Ubisoft did not give Settlers Freaks (the group developing RttR) a permission to redistribute the files. This means you need The Settlers II: Gold Edition for RttR to work.
New Feature: Jump
You are now able to use the jump function. By pressing "J" you can open the jumping window which you may know from playing replays. You
can enter any GameFrame(GF) which hasn't been passed yet. That way you can jump to any GF without playing or waiting for a long time.
That way you can test your maps, skip waiting times. Be careful, the AI continues playing while jumping!
New Addon: Battlefield Promotion
If you enable this addon, any soldier will be promoted if he kills an enemy. This may helps on maps with low gold resources or when
playing without any gold. If playing without gold but with battlefield promotion you may also set the maximum soldier rank.
