[New release] Simutrans-Experimental 10.9
« on: February 02, 2012, 10:53:01 PM »
A new version of Simutrans-Experimental is available to-day: Simutrans 111.0 Experimental 10.9. 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 and Nettool. Neither the configuration files, Nettool nor Makeobj have been updated for this version. This is a bugfix version, which fixes reported issues in 10.8. 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.

Simutrans-Experimental 10.9 (together with Pak128.Britain-Ex 0.8.3) can be played online. See here for details of the server.

This is a bug fix release, with some small feature changes to assist in balancing games, especially online games; the feature changes are based on testing from the online game, information above. A full list of changes follows.

Changes since 10.8
  • FIX: Crashes on loading some older paksets and saved games.
  • FIX: Crashes on loading in some cases.
  • CHANGE: Faster loading/saving for local clients when other players connect in network mode (thanks to Turfit for the suggestion
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!
