at the begenning i started by downloading and installing the prerequisites linked here:
then i went there:https://github.com/Revolutionary-Games/Thrive/blob/engine_refactor/doc/setup_instructions.md
aftet installing all the prerequisites made a folder called “bulding_thrive” and went there clicked in (Shift + right click)
then clicked on “open command window here” and typed “git clone https://github.com/Revolutionary-Games/Thrive.git
cd Thrive” when it finished typed “git checkout engine_refactor” to switch to engine_refactor bransh (when the engine switch is done you will not need to do this)
then typed “ruby SetupThrive.rb thrive” when it asked me for options typed “Y” waited until it finished compiling and
it asked me for password typed “thrive” waited until thrive compiled and done.
note:after compiling boost go to Enviroment Variables then user Variables click new and for name Type "BOOST_ROOT"
for path type the installation folder of boost location (not thrive but boost ) then click new again and for name
type “BOOST_HOME” for path the installation folder of boost location then click ok.
note:i enconterd tons of bugs and errors i did not mentioned here becuase nearly all of them have been ironed out
and i do not remember most of them .
