    If you do not know what FreeCiv is, it is a PC homebrew Civilization 2 but better. It's source etc. is free to use/download for everyone who is interested, and it is the best civ. around gameplay-wise.
    So, graphics suck, small game size, best gameplay possible. Do I hear NDS?

    The question I ask are:
    1. Would it be possible to port this (in a reasonable amount of time)?
    2. Is anyone interested in such a project?

    I would help out with all the time I have spare, but I am not much of a coder.

    And, yes, I know of the existence of CivRevDS, but it sucks (compared to Civ2 or FreeCiv).

    Best regards,

    It'd need to be downgraded. IT needs to much ram and a more powerful Processor than the DS's
    Short answer, NO
    Long answer, Maybe

    I'll elaborate..

    Well, DS wifi can do that.. (was it 1Mb down/up or 2 Mb up/down?)

    To sumarize, could be done, but It'd need a some effort... And someone wanting to do it. I took a look at the source code, and it's a quite complex game.
