[New release] Simutrans-Experimental 10.27
« on: February 15, 2013, 06:09:42 PM »
A new version of Simutrans-Experimental is available to-day: Simutrans 111.2.1 Experimental 10.27. See here 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:

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

This is primarily a bugfix release, with one or two small improvements. See here for information on the 10.12 release, which was a very substantial upgrade on the previous 10.11 release. See here for information on the previous bugfix release, 10.26.

I have included the version compiled with IPv4 only in the Windows binaries, as some users were reporting frequent desyncs when using Windows XP in 10.4.



A full list of changes follows.

Changes since 10.26
  • FIX: Braking distance texts in the depot/replace windows were not translatable
  • FIX: Above ground signals instead of underground signals could be built on underground ways in sliced underground mode
  • FIX: Possible cause of crash on map enlargement in some cases.
  • FIX: Detection of underground mode for building purposes did not work correctly in network mode (Dwachs)
  • FIX: "Mirror route" did not work properly on trains which were not assigned to a line.
  • CHANGE: Update the credits
  • CHANGE: Trains will stop in the centre of the platform rather than move all the way to the end to the extent permitted by the platform tile selected and the length of the train (except for terminal stops)
  • FIX: Crash on removing ways using the way removal tool where a sign or signal was left behind on a tile on which a way in another direction was deleted.
  • FIX: Crashes in some cases if incorrect settings specified in menuconf.tab
  • FIX: Crashes if a convoy was sent to a depot (including automatically with a replace command) whose ground tile has been deleted.
  • FIX: Reversing times > 65535ms can now be specified in simuconf.tab (but these will be rounded down to 65535ms until the major version is incremented to 11).
  • CHANGE: Reversing times can now be set in seconds in simuconf.tab using "unit_reverse_time_seconds" (etc.). Specifying these times in seconds will override the old specifications in milliseconds.
  • REVERT: Fix to previous issue appears to go further than necessary, and might be a cause of desyncs.
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 10.12 (braking physics, Carl's new timing/spacing features, the elevated way restrictions, underground station and signal restrictions); (2) online play (see here 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 (10.23 and before in particular).

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