Simutrans.com: Pakset-Infos not available

Simutrans.com is in my opinion the main entry for most new players. It's also the first page you find when googling "Simutrans". However, it seems that this page needs some maintenance: if you want to download the paksets, all the information about them seems to be gone.

That's all I see when clicking on "Paksets" in the menu:



Given that this is the main entrance point for Simutrans, I don't think this gives a good impression to novice Simutrans players.

(Btw.: the linked Simutrans version on this forums landing page also still points to an outdated version.)

Also mind the Google+ link in there.
True to that. Maybe replace that Google+ link with a Reddit link? That seems like the most active social profile we got besides Facebook.

Not a bad idea. We do get some occasional questions and posts on reddit. 415 subscribers, and 6 posts this past month. :)

https://reddit.com/r/simutrans is the link

There are @simutrans and @simutrans_de accounts on twitter, but neither are active.

Who is/are the maintainer/s of the website?

Heh, my autoupdate script screwed it somehow, it seems everytime I put it on production it blows, but on dev it works flawlessly. I'll fix it.
And will replace the G+ to Reddit.

The site is fixed and Reddit link is up, I'll investigate why the autoupdater deleted the definitions file.

Duh, one path was wrong, it ended up not importing the file.

By the way, thanks to whoever contacted me on Telegram as I've recently reset my phone and didn't setup the email that receives the PMs alerts.

Maybe it's time to reset his forum language to Albanian. :D

The update script is working now. The site will autoupdate whenever new versions are released on SourceForge. :award:

Heh, I've always been around when needed, just took a time off of forum discussions.
