[New release] Simutrans-Experimental 11.9
« on: August 28, 2013, 09:37:15 PM »
A new version of Simutrans-Experimental is available to-day: Simutrans 112.3 Experimental 11.9. See here 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:

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

This is a minor bug fixing release to address some of the issues identified since the release of 11.8. Thanks to all those who have posted bug reports. The last major release was Simutrans-Experimental 11.0, which contained significant enhancements over the previous version.

Note: There was a known issue with the previous version, which I am not yet sure whether this version fixes: joining online games through the in-game GUI was not working due to issues communicating with the announce server. To join an online game if this issue is still present in this version, go to the load game dialogue, and type "net:[ADDRESS]" where "ADDRESS" is the name or IP address of the server: for example, net:bridgewater-brunel.me.uk or net:127.0.0.1.



A full list of changes follows.

Changes since 11.8

  • CHANGE: Allow bridges to be built over any type of station building.
  • CHANGE: Properly handle vertical takeoff and landing aircraft (e.g., airships and helicopters), albeit the actual taking off/landing is a bit sudden at present.
  • FIX: Truncation of DNS names - possible cause of announce server failure.
  • FIX: Copying a convoy whose schedule window had been opened but not closed caused errors in scheduling (Philip)
  • FIX: Ships would not properly comply with the convoy spacing feature when more than one was at a stop at once.
Feedback and testing

Thanks also to all those who have played Simutrans-Experimental and provided feedback, bug reports and the like: 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 11.0 (see here); (2) online play (see here 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 shall bid people good playing, and look forward to any feedback!
