Post by: IgorEliezer on July 04, 2009, 07:35:55 AM
Saved Games

There are simple things that we recommend you follow so that members can appreciate your saved game and you receive comments:

1) Saved Game board (http://forum.simutrans.com/index.php?board=59.0) is only for topics opened with saved games available to download.

2) Upon posting your saved game, on the 1st post:

2.1. You must provide one or more links from where players can download your saved game;

2.2. If your saved game uses add-ons, you must provide the links from where players can download needed add-ons;

2.3. Write something about your saved game, be creative, and don't forget to tell the pakset and version of Simutrans;

2.4. Screenshots are optional, but they help a lot.

To host saved games, files and images, you can use Simutrans file hosting (http://files.simutrans-germany.com/) or any reliable file hosting (http://www.google.com.br/search?hl=en&q="file+hosting") and image hosting (http://www.google.com.br/search?hl=en&q="image+hosting").

About features of Simutrans file hosting

Simutrans file hosting now creates automatically a clicable thumbnail for images that have more than 128 kB filesize.

You just need to use this code in your posts:
