Happy New Year to all the painters - how do I get the add-ons ?
« on: December 28, 2011, 10:28:08 AM »
It is so touching to see all the enthusiastic paint jobs in this forum. Well done everyone ! I'm impressed.


Two questions :

How do I add add-ons ?

And how do I get them ? By the respective forum threads here most probably ? Because this ... "database", a link I found on the simutrans homepage, does not seem to be quite up to date. Or I am using it wrongly ?

That "database" is updated from time to time, not very often though.
The best way to get the most updated addons is by navigating through the forum, and downloading them from their proper links.

more possibilities downloading addons :
- french addons here : http://www.simutrans-france.fr.nf/doku.php?id=en:snfos (english translation)
- japan addons here : http://japanese.simutrans.com/ (partial english translation)
- official addons here :http://addons.simutrans.com/ (all pak versions)- this up to date (I tried this morning)
- Czechian addons here : http://simutrans.czechian.net/en_index.htm (english translation)
and what else... ?

how to install :
just unzip the file (file.zip) and put the file.pak  directly in pak128 repository; then run simutrans ;)

Thanks a lot, guys !

I was asking about the official addon database because I didn't find the zoo there, for example. But I may be confusing what "official addon" means. That's cool though. I can browse the forums.

Thanks for the international links !!!

Unfortunately, some of them have not been released (e.g. the zoo, IIRC)
