 PARTY HAS BEEN POINTED AT SUCH POSSIBILITIES OF DAMAGE.

 This install applies to "Sim Ant"  1991 Maxis.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad to be in the path.
 It can be found in the WHDLoad package.
 To install from a different drive than DF0: select installation mode Expert.

 The installed game requires:
 LoRes version: 0.5 MB ChipMem and 0.5MB OtherMem
 HiRes version: 1.0 MB ChipMem and 1.5MB OtherMem

 Additionally 1.1 MB OtherMem are required for preload and Kickstart ROM.

 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").

 The game requires an installed A500 Kickstart 1.3 image.
 The kickstart image must be located in the directory "Devs:Kickstarts" and
 must be named "kick34005.A500". The image can be extracted from a A500 with
 tools like 'GrabKick' or similar which can be found on aminet.
 If the image is of wrong version or altered in any way WHDLoad will quit with
 an appropriate message.
 Additionally the file "kick34005.A500.RTB" must be installed in the same
 directory as the kickstart image. It can be found in the archive
 "util/boot/skick346.lha" on aminet.



 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - Registration screen disabled
 - 3 versions supported (English, French, German)
 - LoRes and Hires versions supported
 - Access fault fixed
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 Another quite good game and my favorite in the "Sim" series which
 didn't have a WHDLoad patch so I made one after I finished the patch
 for Sim Earth earlier today. It wasn't much work anyway but still
 interesting as the Lores versions use overlay hunks so removing
 the registration screen was not too trivial (but not really hard either).

 Supported are three versions of the game, these are:
 English (SPS 2221), French (SPS 2665) and German (SPS 0084)
 LoRes and HiRes versions are of course all supported!

 If you have a fast machine and a flicker fixer I recommend to play the
 HiRes version.

 Enjoy the game from HD.
