  Description     : an open source re-implementation of Caesar III

Julius is a fully working open-source version of Caesar 3, with the same logic as the original, but with some UI enhancements, that can be played on multiple platforms.

Julius will not run without the original Caesar 3 files. You can buy a digital copy from GOG or Steam, or you can use an original CD-ROM version.

The goal of the project is to have exactly the same game logic as Caesar 3, with the same look and feel. This means that the saved games are 100% compatible with Caesar 3, and any gameplay bugs present in the original Caesar 3 game will also be present in Julius.

    Support for widescreen resolutions
    Windowed mode support for 32-bit desktops
    A lot of small in-game quality of life improvements
    Support for the high-quality MP3 files once provided on the Sierra website


This would be another great clone engine in the contrib section and
maintained in the Games Team to play a classic. Please note there is
another RFP #506606 also called julius, so please consider a less
ambiguous source package name.
