===Notes about playing the game in a terminal===
 
Mouse support works best in the SDL version of the game. Chances are if you don't know which version of the game you're playing it's the SDL version (<code>arcane_fortune.bat</code>, <code>arcane_fortune_linux</code>, or <code>arcane_fortune_osx</code>, depending on platform). However, if you do wish to run the game in a terminal emulator directly, you can use the <code>*_ncurses</code> versions of the game also provided. On Linux, mouse support works best in Konsole. If you don't care about the mouse then the choice of terminal emulators doesn't seem to matter much.

===Modding===
 +
Everything in <code>game/config/</code> can be altered. You can, for example, add or edit buildings, units, doctrines, technologies, or resources.
 +
 +
It is recommend that you not remove the entries for the following units: Worker, Wood Clubber, Archer, ICBM, Explorer, Rioter.
 +
And the following buildings: City Hall, Boot Camp, Dock, Academy, Camp.
 +
 +
Removing those entirely may cause unstable game behavior. However, you shouldn't have any problem altering the costs or other parameters, for those or other items.
 +
 +
In the more distant future I'd like to add [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lua_(programming_language) Lua] scripting support, so if there's something in particular you want to mod with the game but can't, please let me know and I can try to design the Lua interface with it in mind.
