Simutrans site - www.simutrans.com (old topic 2)
« on: October 04, 2009, 01:39:43 PM »
Simutrans.com site

This is the new old opic for discussions about our simutrans.com site.

Feel free to:

- make suggestions;
- offer material;
- report errors;
- announce sites (fan and official ones) to be listed here;
- and so on what I can't remember now... ;D



Simutrans.com site progress

Simutrans.com site is receiving some changes:

Index:
- New layout: less blank spaces and more colorful/friendlier.
- New picture (leftside, with trains): I would like someone suggest me something better.

About:
- A link to Kompozer site. (Kompozer is an open-source HTML editor, the same I'm using to edit the site)

Download:
- New link for pak128.Britain
- Nightly Builds

Links:
- Several links for sites were removed (outdated, abandoned or not-working sites, e.g. SimuConfig, Simutrans Music, Screenshot Gallery and Simutrans Archive and more);
- New categories: Fan Simutrans Sites, and Reviews and external sites.

All:
- Stupid green-page bug fixed (see here the screenshot);
- Tiny and cute link-flags for German, Portuguese, Japanese and Spanish sites: see page footer.

Preview of upcoming site here: http://www.simutrans.com/newsite

EDIT: Bad writing fixed.

Good job Igor!
I have a few prompts:
* images in jpeg-format with high compression looks poor. You can use PNG - is better for web-based graphic.
* background color (rgb 102, 102, 204; hex 6666CC) in H4-title (Simutrans is a freeware...) looks on my display very, very crazy  :o

In top is original color (#6666CC) and in bottom is "new" (#30406E). I think, new color provides better contrast...

This looks imho ugly too, I think. Why needed to make it like this?

(And those strange MAC-like icons on the download page case more confusion to me than directing me to anything. Also a break under the complete download would be great ...)

I'll be updating the Simutrans.com portal soon. Maybe tomorrow or Monday, so post what you think about the site as fast as you can.

I'd like to ask a little thing: Are you seeing this image at the front page http://www.simutrans.com/newsite ?

That's just a placeholder. I think of substituting it by an image with some locos, convoys and trucks (pak128 or 192) over a transparent background or something like this as shown at http://128.simutrans.com/.

This looks imho ugly too, I think. Why needed to make it like this?

What is ugly for you?

What breaks it for me is:

1) Strange colour choice (violet) Sorry, you are changing that!

2) The part saying "download" overlaps the bar in a rather blocky way... no idea how to explain better, it feels like banana boxes stacked together carelessly:

Probably related to having a different height overlapping above and under.

3) The bar itself is too strong a divider; there is "background", "text block" and "header", all of them with adding more horizontal lines, and this adds even more of these. It's just a theory but it begins to look too much like an advertisement.

Could we get the title bar from the blog also for the www.simutrans.com? Imho it looks much better and it should just require some CSS changes. And it would not hurt if www.simutrans.com is tested with Chrome, I find this jumping menubar due to bold change by mouseover quite annoying, but I would like to hear more comments on it.

Re: Simutrans site - www.simutrans.com (2nd round) (about 102.2.2)
« Reply #24 on: March 08, 2010, 02:56:17 PM »
Another simutrans site update is near. So, I need to know few things:

1) Are there Simutrans complete versions for 102.2.2 available?

2) v102.2.2 is stable?

3) BeOs will no longer be supported by Simutrans DevTeam?

2) It has mostly bugs correction, so yes.

3) Haiku should be full compatible with BeOs,so the programm should run.

Well Haiku has a different networking library than BeOS. But since no modern computer can run BeOS (no dual CPU support, no support of meodrn networking chips, ... ) but can run Haiku, I compiled now under Haiku.

I think 102.2.2 is one of the most stable released ever ... but I though the rule was to call something stable after one week testing.

And the complete version should be on sourceforge.

Simutrans website points to SVN but doesn't tell you the password
« Reply #30 on: June 01, 2010, 03:42:32 PM »
Hi!

I wanted to do some hacking on the latest simutrans source, and I quite easily found the link to the development SVN account from http://www.simutrans.com/development.htm. However I was a little stumped when it asked for a password.

After trying combinations of "anonymous" and "guest" to no avail, I dug around on this forum and found the details (username: "anon", password: "").

My suggestion is that it would be nice if this info was added to the main website :).

EDIT BY Igor: DONE!

A new update is near. What's new:

- SVN password on public, as said here: http://forum.simutrans.com/index.php?topic=5258.0
- German link will be www.simutrans.de
- More links in Simutrans Sites page: http://simutrans.com/links.htm
- New screenshots in PakSet gallery: http://simutrans.com/paksets.htm (many of them will be SMSC winners)
- some fixes.

But, to get it done, I will need:

- to know, does the pakJapan (or Pak64Japan) still exist?
- one screenshot of pak96.comic
