A new version of Simutrans-Experimental is available to-day: Simutrans 112.3 Experimental 11.12. 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:

Edit: Updated with Mac OS X link and with note that the Linux build server is down.

Edit 2: Added link to manually compiled 32-bit Linux version.

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. The Windows version contains both 32-bit and 64-bit binaries: the only discernible advantage of using the 64-bit binaries, however, is that they will allow one to use a game so large that the amount of memory would exceed the limit for 32-bit programmes (circa 2Gb). From version 11.12 onwards, the correct .dll files for 64-bit use have been included in the .zip files, and there is a 64-bit version of the Windows command line server executable.

This is a bug fix and usability enhancement release to address some of the issues identified since the release of 11.11. Thanks to all those who have posted bug reports, and to those who have contributed fixes. The last major release was Simutrans-Experimental 11.0, which contained significant enhancements over the previous version.

A full list of changes follows.

Changes since 11.11

  • FIX: Trains would slow for every signal whether necessary or not.
  • FIX: Random map generation now allows for full range of possible random maps, not just the first 9999.
  • ADD: Do not display vehicles in the depot window that cannot leave the depot because of incompatible way constraints
  • ADD: Show vehicles too heavy to be bought in a depot in grey, and disallow their purchase.
  • FIX: Crash with double headed tender locomotives in some cases.
  • CHANGE: Increase message window limit (Prissi)
  • CHANGE: Increase the cursor's maximum height
  • CHANGE: Increase default routing depth in
  • CHANGE: Allow the public player (only) to terraform in deep water.
  • FIX: Crash on creating new player in an online game in some cases.
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; (6) any issues specific to the Windows 64-bit version; and (7) any other useful feedback.

I shall bid people good playing, and look forward to any feedback!
