Introduce yourself to the community!
You can introduce yourself to the community here. I hope you have already read our Simutrans Forum Guidelines
first. They can help you to better enjoy your stay in our community and facilitate our job here. Also, older members of community can say "hi" and give you a welcome.
Now, let me present the forum:
We are a friendly community. Here you can learn and participate in our projects and discussions too.
This community has the goal of gathering developers and fans to discuss, develop and publish Simutrans
. We have English language as main language, but we have some "parts" of our forum that are reserved for other languages.
Our forum has 6 main sections
(we admins call them "categories"). Each main section holds some few boards where discussions can take place. Each board is meant for a kind of discussion and activity, so that we can keep everything organized. If you are going to post a message or a new topic, or searching something, please use an appropriate board. Always use the Forum Search Tool
before posting; chances are pretty good that what you are looking for has been posted before.
Now, briefly about our main sections
: Information & Announcements

Here you can ask for help about how to play Simutrans and find manuals, tutorials, and online servers. Also, we have a Discussion space where we can discuss about Simutrans gameplay and a Social space where we share screenshots, stories and hold periodic contests. Development
Here you can post ideas to extend Simutrans engine, get involved with Simutrans development and coding, and help to translate Simutrans in your language. PakSets and Customization
