[Experimental release] Pak128.Britain-Ex 0.5
« on: March 26, 2010, 02:36:23 PM »
Please note: This version has been superseded by 0.6: see here for details.

A new version of the preview and testing version of the Simutrans-Experimental version of Pak128.Britain is now available: download it here. This is a complete pakset and should be installed in its own directory. It is only compatible with Simutrans-Experimental (version 7.2 and higher) - the normal Pak128.Britain should be used with Simutrans-Standard.

This is a preliminary version meant for testing and evaluation, although it should balance better with Simutrans-Experimental than the standard Pak128.Britain. Not all of the Simutrans-Experimental features are implemented yet (although I am planning to implement them all in due course).

Here is a list of the features supported by this release of Pak128.Britain-Ex:

  • Comfort
  • Loading times
  • Catering
  • Upgrading (partial)
  • Way constraints
  • Reversing
  • Tilting trains
  • Overcrowding (only on a few vehicles so far - work in progress)
  • Industry obsolescence
  • Industry upgrading
  • Weight limits
  • Tractive effort

See here for a more detailed description of the work outstanding and so far completed, and also for information on how to get involved in contributing to the project and obtaining the sources.

Changes from 0.4 include:

  • CHANGE: Increased weight limits of early road bridges
  • ADD: Snow textures (from Standard)
  • CHANGE: Increased maximum speed of Q1 tender (from Standard)
  • CHANGE: Set more realistic power for GWR Prairie
  • CHANGE: Increased speed limit of BR Standard tender (from Standard)
  • CHANGE: Set introduction date of postbox earlier
  • ADD: New goods type: fresh fish, and fishing dock to go with it (from Standard)
  • CHANGE: New picture for boats button in main menu (from Standard)
  • ADD: Lots of new boats (from Standard)
  • FIX: Horse trams not bidirectional
  • ADD: Merged the sources from the standard version of Pak128.Britain 1.07 (lots of new features and buildings)
  • FIX: Updated compat.tab
  • FIX: Tunnels no longer have a weight limit of zero.
  • FIX: Error in translation texts
  • REMOVE: Conflicting pavement file
  • FIX: Some industry retirement dates did not overlap properly (from Standard)
  • FIX: Car dealership used petrol station images (from Standard)
  • FIX: Powerlines used wrong images (from Standard)
  • FIX: Some monuments not working properly

Any feedback on this pakset variant (especially relating to the gameplay balance) would be very much welcome.

Romik, I'm afraid we don't understand Czech in the pak128.Britain board.  Could you please edit your post to provide a translation please?

That said, this seems to be about the download link, which doesn't appear to be working (at least not for me).

ČESKY: Jelikož neumím moc dobře anglicky, tak jsem si to nechal přeložit 'Translatorem'. Snad se v tom přeloženém textu vyznáte. Romik
ANGLICKY: Since I do not know English very well, so I just let it translate 'Translator'. Perhaps in the translated text meaning. Romik

I tried to download the newest Makeobj via the appr. "here"-link.
However I have to login in a FTP-server. This does not accept my Simutrans username and code.
I am NOT familiar with these things!!
What is the right way to solve this matter?

DieselBarge bug: no "Small waterway" constraint  in boats/diesel-barge.dat
Rivers/channels are quite unusable now.

AvG,

thank you for pointing that out - link now corrected.

Inkelyad,

thank you for the report - that issue is fixed in the sources, and the fix will be applied from the next version onwards. Your feedback is most helpful!
