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.

Isaac Eiland-Hall

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.

FYI Bridgewater-Brunel has not appeared on the Extended Server List for the last couple of days. Might be connected to the latest patches or might not.

I am not actively playing this game (and won't have time for Simutrans for a few weeks) so there is no hurry to fix this on my part.

Thank you for the report. I think that this was the more common thread deadlock issue. I have reset the server; it would be useful to test whether this works with the latest patches.

Does the game end? The server seems to be offline for a while.

We seem to be getting outages quite soon after restarting. There has been a bug for a while where an occasional thread deadlock will stop the game from working until it is restarted. This seems to have become very frequent with this game to the point where we are not getting through the month. On the one hand, being so frequent may make it easier to find and eventually fix - but on the other hand, I have not time to deal with that at present because I am still having a lot of my time taken away by house refurbishments.

Also, we have now reached the future (October 2026). I wonder whether people might like a fresh start on a new map?

I always lose interest once we have reached the future. If you are kind enough to restart on a new map then I will join eventually, though there is no hurry on my part. I am happily playing Imperator:Rome and watching Iron Age documentaries for the time being.

I'd be interested in a new world.

The launch of a new online map is a great opportunity to test extended with players and get feedback, especially if new features are added.

And I'm currently working on renovating the chat window.

If it is completed and incorporated, I am confident that it will definitely facilitate communication between players.
I'll start a thread about the new chat window soon.
pak.256やpak.nipponのような複数タイル市内建築物があるpakセットはextendedではちゃんと遊べません。それどころかextendedの追い越し機能はバグまみれで修正が難しくなっており、都市機能および道路機能というゲーム土台部分を壊し、開発作業&コードメンテナンスの足かせになっている。それは最終的にプレイヤーの損失に他ならない。その原因は全て1人の日本人=ひめし@himeshi_hob(THleaderH)によるもの。再びフォーラムの先輩方のアドバイスをガン無視し、結局ほとんど修正されないままExtendedに実装されてしまった。彼は問題を認識しつつ5年以上放置して今なおOTRPの開発を続けている。あまりにも身勝手で無責任。日本の人達はそういう事実にちゃんと目を向けるべき (´・ω・`)

That really looks great. I am tempted to wait with the release which I would have otherwise done tonight.

Quote from: Ranran(retired) on May 11, 2024, 08:59:33 AMOne feature that I think is missing from Simutrans (in addition to the chat improvements) is the ability to encourage players' competitive spirit in network competitive games.
This leads to purpose, motivation, and satisfaction in playing.
I've created a new thread to implement new features regarding network play. People's opinions on this (especially players who enjoy network play) would be helpful.

This game has now ended and been replaced with the next game. This game managed to reach October 2026 in-game and it can be downloaded here.

See here for the thread for the new game.

I hope that everyone enjoyed!
