Simutrans 101.0 (r2207)

Due to our nightly system, releases are now sparse. This is the last relase before incorporation of nework gaming support and comes with many new features and error corrections. Especially users of the 100-0 release should update.


Installing and starting Simutrans up

1. You have to download at least two files: 1) A executable compatible to your operating system; 2) a graphic package at your choice.

2. Unzip both files you have downloaded.

3. The content of both files you unzipped must be stored in one folder.

:idea: A sample of how all files must be stored in: Simutrans folder.

4. Start Simutrans up by double-clicking on executable, and have fun!
