Just a tip on how to get the music to sound "right" under Linux/Fluidsynth

It was sounding very odd with the out-of-the-box soundfonts on Linux.  I found the HiDef.s2 soundfont by stgiga which is designed to really sound like the old Roland soundfonts, and now it sounds like I remember it.

It sounds much more realistic! "Right" is not the word I would use, since others may prefer more retro music. But that is the beauty of this system: If you don't like the stock soundfont, you can just swap it for one you like.

But oh boy if it comes with a cost in this case. A 4GB soundfont is more than the size of Simutrans and all its paksets combined 🤯

If we compare all the uncompressed paksets, I think they equal or very close to 4 gb (I think) :P  ;)
