is a large map server for Pak128.Britain-Ex. I had hoped to restart the server with the forthcoming 0.9.0 release of Pak128.Britain-Ex, but it has not proved possible to finish that version in good time, so I thought it worthwhile to start the server with the interim 0.8.4 release.
The game starts in 1785 to allow players to make full use of canals, which have hitherto received limited attention.Edit
: Might I remind people of the importance of setting a password? Go to the "players" dialogue and click the little green box: there, you can set a password and also change the name of your company, the latter of which is also a good idea.Edit 2
: The previous bug in the 0.8.4 release which prevented clients from joining the game normally (making it necessary to type "net:bridgewater-brunel.me.uk" from the load game dialogue) has now been fixed, and it is possible to join this game with the "Play online" button.
