Based on the work of freeserf I wrote my own Remake of Settlers 1 in Java.

The game is playable as singleplayer, however the game is still considered as Alpha. Mainly missing is the AI and therefore the missions.

I plan to finish the game as close to the original game as possible but also consider some extensions such as LAN games.

Important: To get the game to start you need one file from the original settlers 1 game because graphics and sounds are read from there. Please copy the file SPAE.PA (or SPAD.PA for german) in the same directory where the game is.

Have fun playing the game.
