I found SimuStarter on the website and I like it since I couldn't figure out the command line to start it in beginner mode!

Because it was outdated I have removed the SimuStarter download from simutrans-tips.com

First link download links arent working for me. Can you upload simuconfig somewhere, and also probably you can tell me, how to clone some vehicle (like Ikarus-280) then how to edit new one, for example, to paint it in yellow? Which tool should help I mean.

Simuconfig seems to be lost but you can try Simustarter which I guess makes more or less the same function (config and run Simutrans)

..and also probably you can tell me, how to clone some vehicle (like Ikarus-280) then how to edit new one, for example, to paint it in yellow? Which tool should help I mean.

I'm afraid that's not possible. The pak file format is a closed container, so you can't access to the sources unless the author has released them.

Some of those tools listened in the toolsite are quite old. Furthermore resizeobj is missing, a verse versatile tool ... http://www.geocities.jp/wa_simutrans/resizeobj.html

(Actually, who takes care of the toolsite? And should this site not be somehow linked with the simutrans.com main site (maybe on the development page?)

Should this tool by Zeno not also be added to the list?

...
(EDIT: I'm missing a tool site that were more powerful and updated than http://hd.simutrans.com/tools/.)

then see here link directory Simutrans

and here link directory Simutrans - Tools

Links can be suggested. And each registered can obtain the rights to be able to manage the links.

overall there are 50 listed Links, but some of them are no longer accessible ( among other things, most xxx.simutrans.com )
