11.9007 Feedback (issues solved with newer pakset)
« on: July 04, 2013, 04:25:42 PM »
Maybe I did something wrong, sadly 11.9007 doesn't work for me. Here's what I did (Windows XP):

1. Downloaded a fresh copy of Simutrans Experimental from the link provided in forum thread "How to get Simutrans Experimental", unzipped it into a new folder.
2. Downloaded the release candidate and unzipped the 2 files into the freshly made folder.

Heres what I get:

1. Occasional crashes when I start version 11.9007, before the intro dialogue, during reading of the pakset (while distributing cities).
2. Frequent crashes while generating the map, during distributing industries. Here's a screenshot to the settings I frequently use when making a new map: http://i.imgur.com/vppVMJY.jpg
3. I'm getting very large towns with these settings, almost always towns with more than 20.000 or 30.000 inhabitants, sometimes with more than 100.000, record was a town with over 400.000 inhabitants covering half the map :) Example (screenshot) of town: http://i.imgur.com/UoNQh33.jpg
4. No sound anymore. The mute sound dialogue box cannot be switched off.
5. Strange placements of industries, most notable with fishing ports that can be anywhere on the map, but not necessarily at the coast. Link to screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/dwNE9my.jpg

Sorry if that's bad news, I really appreciate your work.

Thank you for the feedback; may I ask - which pakset version are you using?

Hello James! The pakset is the one that comes with the complete package download of Simutrans Experimental, called Pak128.Britain-Ex-0.8.3 from this link: https://github.com/downloads/jamespetts/simutrans-pak128.britain/Simutrans-Experimental-Complete.zip

Thanks again for all the work to you and the other contributors!

Ahh, yes, that is rather out of date. I am currently working on 0.9.0, which is not far from completion, but until then, you could give it a go with 0.8.4 (an interim version), which can be found here.

The crashes on map generation, I think, is due to a separate bug which has been fixed on my Github repository. Do let me know how you get on!

Thanks a bunch: all issues solved with the 0.8.4 pakset - made about 20 new maps with my usual settings with the newer pakset:

- no crash
- reasonably sized towns
- sound works
- no misplaced fishing port
