Title: A new version of PAK128.german is out
Post by: michelstadt on May 10, 2016, 09:17:04 PM
A new version of PAK128.german can be downloaded here (https://sourceforge.net/projects/simutrans/files/PAK128.german/PAK128.german_0.9_120x/PAK128.german_0.9_120.x.zip/download).

Version 0.9 brings some important changes for most of the industry chains. Savegames should not be affected though as the old factories still exist but will not be generated by ST.

For the first time PAK128.german has a balanced economic system, at least for trucks and trains from 1950 on. Thus playing PAK128.german has become a bit harder but still remains playable also for newbies.

A vehicle list has been added and can be found in the README folder.

Contributors to this version are NNW, Pumuckl999, The Transporter and RedRabbit.

I hope you will enjoy it.

This release should have a fruit farm but the pak file ist corrupt. This one works as supposed (https://www.dropbox.com/s/e7ypphh4uzbx9g5/factory.Obstbauer.pak?dl=0).

Team member NNW has uploaded most if the vehicle data files to Translator. Feel free to translate names and descriptions of building texts to "your" language.

Hi the new version is awesomeeee ;D ;D Especially the planes are very nice with the Lufthansa and Interflug liveries that are great :) just one request if the size of planes can be adjusted in next version since the A300-600, A340-600 and A350 looks smaller that boeing 737-500 just if it can be fixed in next version and if possible to add Lufthansa Boeing 747-400, Boeing 747-200 ,Dc-10, A310,A380-800, A320-200 and A321-200 :) Thank You so much

Thank you for your compliments. The size of planes are a bit tricky, as planes - even those of the nineteen-fifties - in real life are much bigger than trains or trucks. Modern planes sometimes are twice as big as those old ones. Nevertheless we will have a look on this case.
New planes will surely be added as soon as Pumuckl999 has time to create them.

Visually looks great. I will focus on shortcomings.
In 1960 Steyrbus becomes obsolete and withdrawn from timeline. So till 1970, for 10 years there is no intercity bus available and you end up with buses doing 50 km/h till Setra S100 becomes available in 1970 (note: this one is said to be manufactured historically form 1967 - source (https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Setra#Busse_von_K.C3.A4ssbohrer)).
I would like to suggest adding one of earlier Setra versions: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Setra_S8_%281954,_100PS%29.jpg (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Setra_S8_%281954,_100PS%29.jpg)

Neoplan https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Auw%C3%A4rter-Neoplan_NH6-7_%281961,_160_PS%29.jpg (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Auw%C3%A4rter-Neoplan_NH6-7_%281961,_160_PS%29.jpg)
or Robur for shorter distances https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:2010_09_27_Hannover_173658_%288599742693%29.jpg (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:2010_09_27_Hannover_173658_%288599742693%29.jpg)
As Bulli is available in postal version, may be it would be the simplest modification https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:2010_09_27_Hannover_174630_%288599763935%29.jpg (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:2010_09_27_Hannover_174630_%288599763935%29.jpg)

Thank you for your suggestions. As you know our set has not yet reached 1.0 level so there are still a lot of vehicles, industry buildings, and other stuff to come. Unfortunately our team is pinched for time so development has slowed down.
