Quote from: Andarix on September 07, 2023, 02:27:27 PMSimutrans servers can currently only be reached via IP and port.

The DNS address of the list server is permanently stored in the code. However, DNS triggering is currently not working.
see https://forum.simutrans.com/index.php/topic,22418

In my opinion, the fixed deposit directly in the code is a design error. It should be possible to specify the list server externally (simuconf.tab or another file) in order to avoid server failures, even for versions that have already been published.

Changing the list server based on a setting in simuconf.tab would be a worthwhile addition for the future. If anyone would like to code a patch for this, I should happily incorporate it, but, ideally, it would be common across Standard and Extended.

....

The DNS address of the Simutrans server should also work alongside the IP.

I've tried
bridgewater-brunel.me.uk
46.32.231.222
46.32.231.222:13353

both in-game and via command-line link, and I get no response, although I can ping the server.

I'm sorry for the delay. This should start working tonight.

The server has been down since the 7th of September. I have now restarted it with the latest build, including the signalling fix. Apologies for the trouble. Thank you to Isaac for fixing the list server.

Thanks everyone for all the work!

I have experimentally modified the server_frames_per_step setting from 12 to 2 to see whether this makes the game smoother to play in a large, well developed map such as we currently have. I should be grateful for any feedback from users as to how this affects gameplay. Thank you.
