A new version of Simutrans-Experimental is available today: Simutrans 102.3 Experimental 7.3. This version is an interim release pending the next main release, Simutrans-Experimental 8.0, which will fix the automatic convoy replacer feature (right now disabled), enable depots that can only build certain types of vehicles (e.g., steam, diesel, sail, etc.), and improve compatibility with saved games.
That means all the errors with long vehicles shaving station roofs are gone (mostly). Watch the difference for instance with the pak128.Britain demo savegame.
This feature (and accompanying bugs) is integrated in nightlies taken from revision 3151 (or greater):
What? didn’t you know it? 6th April is known as the Pak64 Day… Yay!
Fuzzy Peach has created a new challenge for pak128 with SNFOS fences. It takes place in Simuworld.
It’s a score based challenge, and the goal is simple: you have to connect several areas and cities of the map. You can’t build airports and buildings in certain zones of the map, like the Prince Jeremy Islands National Park. It’s a very ecological challenge…
