[New release] Simutrans-Experimental 11.25
« on: April 24, 2014, 12:51:20 AM »
A new version of Simutrans-Experimental is available to-day: Simutrans 112.3 Experimental 11.25. 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, and the Linux server binary contains the Linux version of Nettool. The Windows version contains both 32-bit and 64-bit binaries: the only discernible advantage of using the 64-bit binaries, however, is that they will allow one to use a game so large that the amount of memory would exceed the limit for 32-bit programmes (circa 2Gb).

This is a minor release incorporating some bug fixes, including a fix of an issue that was crashing the online game server. The last major release was Simutrans-Experimental 11.0, which contained significant enhancements over the previous version. Particular thanks to TurfIt for his work on some substantial bug fixes relating to the loading mechanism.



A full list of changes follows.

Changes since 11.24

  • FIX: Possible integer overflow/underflow issues with max template.
  • CHANGE: Do not attempt to calculate a route where the distance is inevitably too great: this can significantly increase performance in cases where many ships are trying and failing to find routes because the distances are too long.
  • FIX: Possible integer precision issues in calculating the maximum in transit percentage.
  • FIX: Rare crash occurring when a ship passed under a bridge on open water (this is the crash that had interrupted the online server).
  • FIX: Numerous issues relating to loading (TurfIt)
  • FIX: Issues relating to the optimisation of co-ordinate objects that might be responsible for desyncs in multi-player mode (TurfIt) (This fix was omitted in error - see now 11.26)
Feedback and testing

Thanks also to all those who have played Simutrans-Experimental and provided feedback, bug reports and the like: 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 here); (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; (6) any issues specific to the Windows 64-bit version; and (7) any other useful feedback.

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