Final release of the geothermal powerplant. Two rotations, with winter version and special night colors. It only appears at cold climates (tundra, artic and rocky)

A screenshot...



EDIT: factory fixed and updated. Now it generates electric energy. Please download it again...  ;D

... powerplants'name MUST finish with "kraftwerk" unless they don't produce any power.

That's why in pak128 1.4.6 they all have "new name" ;)

Thus that's why the names were changed in the new pak128 release..  :P

Well, while they're addons, not official stuff, I rather use real names.

How do you connect power lines and transformers? In the new pak128 I can't place a transformer next to the farm. It must be able to connect to the central portion.

If you are asking about the solar plants: No, vilvoh released them as addons and they were included & fixed later (but before release).

I got the same problem.
When I want to connect it says:
"Transfomer must be placed on enmpty flat ground adjacent to a factory"

Any Ideas what it could be?

(I answer in French, it's faster :D )

Ca a déjà été répondu au-dessus, étant donné que c'est un addon encore en version de test il n'a pas été configuré en tant que centrale. Il faudra attendre la version finale ;)

I saw that solar plants were included in the latest pak128 but why the geothermal one isn't included too ?

I released it after the pak128 release, so there wasn't time enough to include it, in case pak128 guys decide so..

Btw, I'm still working on the solar pond. It's almost finished.

EDIT: a preview. I have to fix some alignment details from the pond fields yet.

not working because of the name which doesn't finish with "kraftwerk".

Solar pond finished. It produces more than the solar farms but less than the geothermal and the PS10 tower. Only appears in desert, tropic and mediterran climates.

PS: this time I didn't forget the kraftwerk's detail...  ;)

Hi

Sorry, but I don't understand.
Does last nightly work? Vilvoh fixed solar plant in 17/04, but last change in Pak128 SVN is 07/04 (Make solar plans "connectable").

Sorry, my english is very bad.

The changes introduced in nightly from VS (I watched the sequence of changes to SVN pak 128) were made on 07/04/10, which was before Vilvoh made the last adjustment on 17/04/10, for this I think that the last nightly are not working correctly.

You can look SVN changes at http://svnlogs.simutrans.com/pak128.html

I guess VS would need the sources too. Anyway, please be patient. Perhaps he has decided not to include it yet.. :::)

PS: Meanwhile, as gauthier said, you can download it from here... ;)
