Probably not as we had to reinstall the forum from scratch less than one year ago ;)

My projects... Tools for messing with Simutrans graphics. Graphic archive - templates and some other stuff for painters. Development logs for most recent information on what is going on. And of course pak128!

Because it's a new forum. As VS said, it was installed from scratch -- all of us started over :)

IgorEliezer

Welcome back. ;D

You had signed up for account some days after I had installed this forum.

As I'm seeing, this is the first time you're posting. So, I merged your topic with Introduce yourself to the community topic.

Enjoy your stay. :D

Dutchman on Rails

Hello,

I am Dutchman on Rails. People visiting the Transport Tycoon Forums may have seen some posts of me there.
I'm a relative newbie to Simutrans. Earlier I have played a bit, but it didn't catch my interest too much. This time I've been playing for almost two months now, and this time I find it more fun playing.
If I keep enjoying, I will likely write stories like I did at the TT-forum, or like LeifInge's Big Bucks Bus and Rail. Normally you will find me starting in the 1900's (mostly 1815, the end of the Napoleonic Wars), with mountainous terrain, small hamlets far apart and just enough starting money and traffic potential to get me started.
For now I'm taking up LeifInge's Rogaland challenge, so my first story will be about how my company does in that game.

Hey All!
I love the whole idea of Simutrans. I found it while searching for a good tycoon game for my iPod Touch. I tried the iPhone version and didn't like it because there was no instructions (might want to work on that  ;)). I looked for instructions online and found the site and downloaded it. I love it and currently use pak64 (although I am looking a pak128). I will try to be active in the community and give suggestions and opinions where ever possible!

This is my first time at this forum. Also, this is my post! :D

So, what should I do there? Is there rules?

Thanks for your help! I have been playing SimuTrans for a long time.  :)

What can you do? Painting, programming, writing (Wiki), make sounds, ... the list is long and Simutrans need a lot of help. So WELCOME!

I use pak64.
The maintainer for pak64 is prissi. I don't know what he need for pak64. Pak.german is in 64x64 too. The maintainer is Frank.

Perhaps, if you play so long time, you can write something in the wiki http://en.wiki.simutrans.com/index.php/Main_Page . Tutorials or 'How can I do this or this' ?? For the english wiki you have to send a mail to webmaster-en.wiki@simutrans.com with your username.

I guess I should have done this a few months ago.

Hello, I am Michael, I am from Rutland, Vermont in the United States.  In case you don't know Vermont is a rural state in Northern New England (North East).    However, I am less than five hours from New York City; Boston; and Montreal, Canada.   I live in a town of about 20,000.   We have a city bus service, creatively named "The Bus"  and we have once a day intercity train service via Amtrak (the Ethan Allan) to Albany, NY and continuing on to New York, NY.   May current profile photo is me at the "161st Street – Yankee Stadium subway station" overlooking the new stadium.

I love simutrans.  For some odd reason I have always been obsessive about transportation/infrastructure.  It use to be about freeway design, then about prasnager trains, and also Air Traffic Control.  So obviously, simutrans speaks home to me.   

I really appreciate everything everybody does for this project.  I would name names, but I am afraid I might leave someone out.  But I like to thank the creators, the developers, the patch-submitters, the pak-maintainers, the painters/artist, the forum maintainers, the documentation/other website maintainers, and the Benevolent Dictators. 

I wish I could do more to contribute.  I got some programing skills, however I am not as familiar with C++ and German to really understand what is going on in the majority of the source code.   Also, If I had more artist/creative skills, I would love to help start a PAK.somesize.USA project. 


Thanks


Michael

Welcome to the forum and the Simutrans world, Michael.

Actually there's only one thing needed to contribute: the aim to help. If you haven't enough skills to program or paint you can give your thoughts to painters on their work, or give player point of view advices/comments, suggest new functionalities, report issues... there's a long list :)

Welcome to the forum, Michael!

I wouldn't say we need another set, we already got some, most of them aren't finished yet. But if you want to do feel free. There's a lot of maintenance work involved with doing a pakset, things like: puting all the stuff in some order, calculating vehicle prices, keeping an overview and having some agenda to tell he painters what's needed, writing changelogs, and communicating with painters/players. A lot of work and much of it is annoying (to most people) but no programming or painting is needed - well as long as you find someone else who paints, but that's usually easier than to find someone who wants to do the maintenance part.

But you can also just play the game and maybe write some interesting report about it, or whatever you want. I dont want to push you or something, just wanted to tell about the vast amounts of invisible work in the background besides painting and programming.

The last reply was 22 days ago now... Wow.

Hi, I'm Sam! Does any one know Sussex? In the UK? 'Cos you should, its the best part of the UK ;)

I found simutrans a while ago, when got the worlds cheapest laptop,and was like ZOMG! Free RRT2 Style game! But it's not for MIPS :P But now i have an EEE, I find playing pak 64 to be like, perfect for my small screen. :) I'd like to think I can paint, and when GIMP has downloaded, i'll compile  (hopefully) my first ever train for pak 128(the BR Class 377 Electrostar Southern uses on the Brighton main line) but the other thing that I enjoy and fascinates me, is Stations, so i plan on making several stations for pak64 and 128. I'll also lend a hand where ever i can (although i'm bad at making pak files i'll still try!) with pak128.Britain since its such a good pak.  :)
