RTS game Megaglest sees 3.4.0 release, brings motherload of new features

Filed under
Gaming

Not that long ago I briefly covered Glest, a free 3D RTS game where the player controls either the Tech Faction or the Magic Faction and fights using all sorts of units and weapons. After, many of you emailed me and suggested that I write about MegaGlest – because it’s apparently much better.

And indeed it is.

MegaGlest takes Glest to a whole new level, with updated graphics, new factions, weapons, units and pretty much everything inbetween.

Right now is an excellent time to try it out too, because the project has just released version 3.4.0 of the game which brings a heap of bugfixes and and a tonne of new features. Literally. Just check out this list!

It is no longer seen as a communal obligation, rather as a conditional activity in which the volunteer also receives benefits. Moreover, distributed revision-control systems and the network effects of GitHub, which standardize the process of making a contribution, make it easier for people to contribute casually to free/libre/open source software (FLOSS) projects.

5 ways to invigorate education with Raspberry Pi

A couple of years ago, I was talking to PayPal senior director of software development Harper Reed at All Things Open in Raleigh, N.C., when he suggested that the best way to invigorate education would be to purchase Raspberry Pis en masse and put them in public libraries. Although many schools have made sizeable investments in classroom technology, those investments have done little to advance students' understanding of how the technology works. That's where the Raspberry Pi comes in, as it's the ideal vehicle to demonstrate the educational efficacy of open source software and open hardware in the classroom. Read more
