This page describes the directory structure of the MegaGlest Project.


Folder Description
/ Contains top level CMakeLists.txt which controls how the sub modules get built using cmake
/data Contains game data content like models, textures, xml files, etc which the game loads as required. This is game data which ships with the game by default (such as the Megapack). Mods are not placed here but in the users' home directory (ApplicationData on Windows) - they use the same directory structure, though.
/data/glest_game/data/core Core game data such as menu textures, fonts and sounds
/data/glest_game/data/lang Language files translated into your native tongue (feel free to contribute)
/data/glest_game/maps Map files (these are the world definition to play the game in)
/data/glest_game/scenarios Scenario files (Lua scripting for story mode)
/data/glest_game/screens This is the folder where screenshots are saved when users press the E hotkey in game
/data/glest_game/techs Techtrees which contains selected faction definitions (XML, G3D, OGG, etc)
/data/glest_game/tilesets Tileset files (this defines how the terrain should look, grassy, sandy, forest, etc)
/data/glest_game/tutorials Tutorial files (this is where beginners should start to learn how to play)
/docs Contains various readme files, license agreements, etc. This is a good place to start reading for developers.
/mk This is where platform specific project files are kept. Currently there are folders for linux, windoze, macosx and shared (for files used on multiple platforms)
