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…
Pak64.Experimental is a modified branch of pak64 for use with Simutrans-Experimental. Many of the features of Simutrans-Experimental are currently difficult to access, because they require a compatible pakset. This pakset will give players easy access to these features, including the following:
- Tilting trains.
- Comfort ratings.
- Catering vehicles (e.g. restaurant carriages)
- Bi-directional trains.
- Overcrowding capacity on passenger vehicles.
- Way constraints.
- Increase in maintenance for obsolete vehicles.
- Fixed maintenance costs.
- Industrial obsolescence.
- Variable loading times for different vehicle.
Morevover, one of the stated aims of this pakset is to make it easier for new pakset-specific features of Simutrans-Experimental to be tested. It is planned that all new Experimental features will be incorporated in pak64.experimental.
