Title: Simutranslator settings for Extended
Post by: Ves on June 16, 2019, 04:27:51 PM
Hi James,
Makie extended the number of accounts so I have gotten an account and should now be able to upload base files myself to the site. However, I am a novice on the subject and I dont want to make it wrong and accidentally overwrite something or delete something, so I hoped that you could describe what steps you usually take in order to upload a new set of base translations?

Excellent - this is very helpful.

The steps for uploading base texts for the executable are as follows:

(1) log in;
(2) go to "manage objects";
(3) select "object import";
(4) select "Simutrans-Extended" from the "select set" dropdown menu;
(5) select "dat only" from the "choose upload type" selector;
(6) select the file by using the "Browse..." button under "select a file";
(7) click "upload the file"; and
( 8) check for any significant error messages in the page that follows.

I hope that this helps.

Thank you! Perhaps pin this thread or copy the described method into one of the pinned threads for future reference by me and other future members?  :)

That is a sensible idea - does anyone have any views on whether this should remain in this subforum or go into the Simutranslator subforum?
