Title: [New release] Simutrans-Experimental 11.00
Post by: jamespetts on July 10, 2013, 11:41:27 PM
A new version of Simutrans-Experimental is available to-day: Simutrans 112.3 Experimental 11.0. See here (http://forum.simutrans.com/index.php?topic=1894.0) for more information on how to download, install and set up the latest version. For those already familiar with the installation and setup, here are some quick links:

Edit: Added links to Linux and Mac OS X binaries.

Note that the Windows binaries contain the Windows version of the no-graphics server, Makeobj and Nettool, and the Linux server binary contains the Linux version of Nettool.

This is a major new release, with a very great many new features, performance enhancements and bug fixes. A summary of the major changes follows.

An update to the .dat file reference will be uploaded shortly to take account of the new features introduced with this version. The new version of Pak128.Britain-Ex, 0.9.0, which has also been released, is needed to take advantage of many of the recent features, including some features (such as braking physics) present in earlier versions, such as 10.27.

NOTE:
When loading a saved game from the RC 11.9007, one must save the game as an earlier version (Standard 112.3 Experimental 11), or else it will not load in 11.0.



A full list of changes follows.

Feedback and testing

Thanks also to all those who have tested Simutrans-Experimental and provided useful feedback: it is very much appreciated. Any feedback from this version would, as ever, also be very much appreciated, including (1) the new features introduced in 11.0 (see above); (2) online play (see here (http://servers.experimental.simutrans.org/list) for a list of Simutrans-Experimental servers); (3) general bug reports; (4) information as to how well-balanced that the game is; (5) any difference in approach/strategy needed for Simutrans-Experimental as over Simutrans-Standard; and (6) any other useful feedback.

I should also be grateful for feedback on how the performance of this version compares to recent previous versions (10.27 and earlier).

I shall bid people good playing, and look forward to any feedback!
