Cvs access did not work for me, since the source is set read-only. Using rsync, it needs then the rcs package installed, to extract it's `,v' archive files using `rcs co' , which is short for checkout.

CrossCiv is still up, people can connect as of February 2018.
CrossCiv code is hosted on sourceforge : https://sourceforge.net/p/galacticmilieu
It's wiki at sourceforge is explaining much.
The player needs to be a normal character that does not use magic or prayers to access the galactic milieu.
Otherwise, the character is send to a usual crossfire-style fantasy world, with an uncommon starting island map.
The client to connect to crossciv.no-ip.org needs to be v1.60.0 or newer, to play it fully functional.
