Spring RTS available via PPA

Spring is a free software real-time strategy game engine that’s available for Ubuntu via the Spring Team’s PPA.

From the Spring About page, it features:

  • Large battles limited only by the power of your computer; support for up to 5000 units.
  • Large, highly detailed maps in which to wage those battles, fully 3D with deformable terrain, forest fires, dynamic and reflective water, and custom skyboxes.
  • Several camera modes, allowing for anything to be viewed from almost any angle.
  • Fully 3D combat in land, sea, and air, with realistic weapon trajectories (physics engine).
  • Many different Games, made just for Spring.
  • Complex 3rd party AIs, some of which are quite good.
  • An extremely powerful GUI, designed to minimize unnecessary micromanagement.
  • Frequent additions and bugfixes.

    Please join the Debian Games Team and get spring into Debian too!

    Why can’t they do it themselves?
