[New release] Simutrans-Experimental 10.5
« on: January 08, 2012, 03:42:49 PM »
A new version of Simutrans-Experimental is available to-day: Simutrans 111.0 Experimental 10.5. 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:


Edit: Added links to the Linux binaries.

Note that the Windows binaries contain the Windows version of the no-graphics server and Nettool. Nettool has been updated for this version, but Makeobj has not. This is a bugfix version, which fixes issues causing instability in 10.4.

A full list of changes follows.

Changes since 10.4
  • CODE: Add text files to the repository to avoid errors on each checkout.
  • FIX: Crash when building canals/rivers over exisitng rivers. (Note: this fix might fix other crashes not yet reported).
  • FIX: Crashes when travelling over the sea. (This also fixes an issue with incorrect waiting times for ships in some cases).
  • FIX: Average speeds were miscalculated and showed 1/10th of their correct values.
  • FIX: Ways would refuse to build incorrectly as a result of not checking ownership correctly on occasions.
  • FIX: IPv6 would not work in Windows XP (from Standard).
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 from 10.4 (access, revenue sharing, player colour saving/transmission); (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.

Thanks again to all those who have worked to test Simutrans-Experimental, and happy playing!
