Title: [New release] Simutrans-Experimental 10.26
Post by: jamespetts on January 31, 2013, 12:19:12 AM
A new version of Simutrans-Experimental is available to-day: Simutrans 111.2.1 Experimental 10.26. See here (http://forum.simutrans.com/index.php?topic=1894.0) 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:

  • Windows binaries (http://bridgewater-brunel.me.uk/downloads/Simutrans-Experimental.zip)
  • Linux binaries(i386) (http://www.43-1.org/~simutrans/simutrans-exp/i386/simutrans-exp-2013-01-31-cf89a7d)
  • Linux binaries(x64) (http://www.43-1.org/~simutrans/simutrans-exp/amd64/simutrans-exp-2013-01-31-cf89a7d)
  • Mac OSX binaries Not presently available
  • Linux server binaries with nettool (x64) (http://bridgewater-brunel.me.uk/downloads/linux-x64-server-binaries.tar)
  • Configuration files (https://github.com/downloads/jamespetts/simutrans-experimental/simutrans-experimental-config.zip)
Edit: Added links to Linux binaries

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

This is a release to fix a specific issue that was causing particular difficulties in the most recent release. See here (http://forum.simutrans.com/index.php?topic=10730.0) for information on the 10.12 release, which was a very substantial upgrade on the previous 10.11 release. See here (http://forum.simutrans.com/index.php?topic=1138) for information on the previous bugfix release, 10.25.

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 10.25
  • FIX: Previous fix for route index related crashes caused erroneous route reservations.
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 (http://servers.experimental.simutrans.org/list) 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!
