ulius is an open source re-implementation of Caesar III.

The aim of this project is to create an open-source version of Caesar 3, with the same logic as the original, but with some UI enhancements, that is able to be played on multiple platforms. The same logic means that the saved games are 100% compatible, and any gameplay bugs present in the original Caesar 3 game will also be present in Julius.

### Gameplay enhancements
- Editor: use the assignment editor directly from within Julius. The editor works the same as the original Caesar 3 editor, with the following enhancements:
- Painting terrain is easier because a green footprint of the terrain appears
- Demand changes: a feature supported by Caesar 3 but not available in the original editor: events to change the amount that cities will trade with you, similar to price changes
- Open play: toggle this option to create an open play scenario, without goals and without Caesar's favor dropping every year
- The editor is available from the main menu. Note that it requires the editor files to be present in the Caesar 3 installation. Get them [here](https://bintray.com/bvschaik/caesar3-editor).
- Better visual feedback when clearing land: buildings to be deleted are highlighted in red
- Diagonal scrolling using the keyboard: hold down two arrow keys to scroll diagonally
- Right-click on the City Construction Kit screen to go back to the main menu
- Aqueduct images are updated when sections are deleted
- Intro track is played when returning to the main menu

### General improvements
- Upgrade SDL to 2.0.10
- Note that this SDL version drops support for Windows XP. To play on Windows XP, use the SDL 2.0.9 library instead
- Smacker videos should play smoother
- Support for Linux AppImage
- Support for MP3 files that were available on the official Caesar 3 site
- Support for the Traditional Chinese version of the game
- Show warning when Julius detects an unpatched Caesar 3 installation
- Command-line options meant for HD monitors:
- `--display-scale` will scale the display by a factor between 0.5 and 5
- `--cursor-scale` will scale the mouse cursor by 1, 1.5 or 2

### Gameplay bugfixes
- Fixed: fishing wharf changing orientation upon save/load game
- Fixed: infinite loop/game freeze during large battles, notably in the Carthago campaign mission

- Fixed: governor name was not set or carried over properly in campaign missions

### Technical fixes
- Fixed: crash when tooltip is drawn off-screen

- Fixed: crashes when screen becomes smaller than 640x480
- Fixed: video sound playing too fast on certain hardware
- Fixed: corrupted video sound for German videos, which use 16-bit audio
