SabiCube 1.1

A single-player total conversion of Cube2-Sauerbraten with focus on adding rpg/adventure elements.
The goal is to make gamebuilding as fun as playing a game, with intuitive menus and guides to help anyone make their own open-source rpg/adventure game, without prior knowledge of programming or 3D-modeling.

The 1.1 release will focus on implmenting classic rpg-style weapons, it includes the game Age Of Reason and as always... a test-map for the new features. Some additions to SabiCube 1.1 might temporarely break support for the game ZetaProject, but it shold still be playable, and if you find a bug, please let me know.

SabiCube is tested on 64-bit (Kubuntu 13.10) and 32-bit (Linux Mint 15 Xfce), and installing should be fairly simple, just extract the zip-file and place the sabicube-folder in your home-dir. If you havent played games on your computer, you might need to install some dependencies, the easyist way to get them all, is to just install Sauerbraten from your repository. To start the game you just execute sabicube_unix. If you have problems, just follow this guide: Github.com

Theres a minor bug in SabiCube 1.1 when you create a new game/map. It is fixed in the github-version, but if you dont want to update via git, you can just edit the cfg-file yourself, after the map is loaded.

Once You have created a map, you will get the error:
Could not read /packages/base/ageofreason/sabitest/triggers.cfg

Click "F1" for editmode and click "F3" for the main edit menu, here you select the tab to the right named "cfg", and edit the line:
exec packages/base/ageofreason/sabitest/triggers.cfg
to this:
exec packages/base/ageofreason/monastary/triggers.cfg
save the file, reload your map and you are done.

The best way organize your project, is to make your own "gamename" folder in /packages/base/ and the copy the files you need for inventory, gamevars triggers and other scripts. This require some light editing in your MapName.cfg, so instead of pointing to:
exec packages/base/ageofreason/monastary/triggers.cfg
your cfg-file should point to:
exec packages/base/yourgamename/triggers.cfg
