Game Source Code: Allegiance

I know it’s been mentioned in a couple of blogs, but I just wanted to give a quick comment on the release of the Allegiance source code.  There are two things that make this such a good move.  1) It allows the community that has developed around Allegiance to thrive.  2) It can provide a great learning tool for anyone who is interested in learning how to program games.  Since the download is over 500MB, I am assuming that everything needed to build and run the client (and server) are provided, including all of the art assets. 

Hmm, I guess I should get back to getting that Terrarium source code ready to release…

    2. The link doesnt work to download the source.

    3. Does this include the source to the server?

    1. Correct, you have to build it

    2. It does, but is flaky. Just retry it.

    3. AFAIK, yes.
