This version includes some substantial updates from 0.8, including support for the liveries feature, snow graphics for most industries, a large number of new pre-grouping steam locomotives, and full support for the minimum/maximum loading times feature introduced in Simutrans-Experimental 10.0. The pakset is eminently playable in its current state, and has been refined by several years of playing and testing, including, more recently, online playing.

Any pakset that works with Simutrans-Standard will work with Simutrans-Experimental. However, Simutrans-Experimental has a number of features that can only be used fully when a pakset made specially for Simutrans-Experimental is used. Let’s review the status of some of the paksets that support this new version of Simutrans.
As the result of the grow of the experimental version of Simutrans, some members of the community have created a experimental version of the Simutrans old pakset, pak64 called Pak64.Experimental, that aims to make it easy for players to take advantage of the above features by providing an Experimental-optimised pakset. At the basic level, pak64.experimental is just a branch of pak64 with several experimental-style features enabled. Let’s take a look about what it offers…
The pak96.comic manager, sojo, has updated the Graphics Style Guide with new rules, in order to keep the consistency of the pakset.
The first Simutrans Regular Graphics Contest (SRGC) has been concluded, and i can announce mEGa the first winner.
A new version of pak96.comic has been released. It includes new sounds, buses, trucks, stops and several bugfixes and adjustments.
You can download it from the Simutrans German Forum
What? didn’t you know it? 28th January is known as the first Pak128 Day of the year… Yay!
Good news for all pakset lovers, we have new releases of old well known paksets.
The Simutrans experimental development team has released a new version of the pak128.Brittain-Ex. The v0.7 seems to be a testing and evaluation version, but it should balance better with Simutrans-Experimental than the standard Pak128.Britain. The dev team has done a great deal of work on balancing this pakset since version 0.6, so it should work considerably better. As a side note, it doesn’t support all Simutrans-Experimental features yet.
On the other hand, the pak64.japan is back after major overhaul. The content is under a mixture of licenses so it won’t be hosted at Sourceforge, but the binaries and the source are available here. Besides, the texts are available for translation at Simutranslator.
