Simutrans v121.0 - r8870 (win8.1)

This is known issue with game date exceeding 2999.  I just couldn't really understand what people giving a fix were saying: "opening new world", or, "click settings", which I could not find. 

I did this for PAK (PAK64):
BKP the actual game in Simutrans.
BKP the "C:\Program Files (x86)\Simutrans\pak\config\simuconf.tab" file.
RUN Notepad as Administrator, browse to and open "C:\Program Files (x86)\Simutrans\pak\config\simuconf.tab".
GO to subsection:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
###################################time stuff###################################

# Starting year of the game:
# Setting it below 1850 is not recommended for pak64 set!
# You will have problems with missing vehicles, do not complain if you do so!
# Setting it above 2050 will render game bit boring - no new vehicles.
#
# other recommended value for pak64 is 1956
#
starting_year = 1930
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
CHANGE the subsection to read (add 'use_timeline = 0'):
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

SAVE and play game :)

This does not work on existing games. For new games there is even a button to switch the timeline of on ther startign screen, saying something like "Use time line" or "Use introduction years" (depending on your language).

Furthermore, copy the simuconf.tab to your documetn directory into the folder SImutrans and edit it there. That way your edits will survive an update.
