Where and what to download

What’s missing still?

  1. There are only 3 climates actively developed so far, those are Western, Continental and Alpine (temperate, tundra, rocky) other climates are lacking in city development. If you got cities in those climates, you might want to use the climate tools as public player to switch to a more developed climate. Most factories are not affected.
  2. Translations! The German translation now seems pretty complete, while the English translation is still ongoing. And don’t mention anything else…
  3. Ships, ships and even more ships.
  4. Not every mode is able to transport every good at any given time. Best bet is that there is a narrowgauge option for it, second are rail and trucks.


Feedback always is appreciated!
Please tell us what you like, dislike and would want to have improved!

In plus, freely contributing to the pakset is a thing! Pak192.Comic is open source, freely adjustable and auto compiles from github actions. That means, you could just clone the repository, do some funky changes and have github build your very own version without doing a lot for it. There’s no weird encoding, no encrypted values, nothing. If you go to the dat file for your favourite steam engine and change the maximum speed from 100 to 2000, you just did that. It’ll appear in the game just like that. Don’t like coal power stations? Just get rid of them. Want to have a rainbow coloured subway? Just draw a rainbow on the image of your favourite subway train. That’s pretty cool, right? But how about you share your funky changes with the rest of the world by adding them to this repository once they work out just fine. That way you could improve the world!… or well, at least this game.
Link to the GitHub:

In Plus, there’s a lot of stuff to translate. In case you can speak a langauge in plus of German, you’re a perfect match for this!

In case you need help modifiing or contributing towateds the game, do not hesitate to ask for some.

The bridges of pak128.Britain

steel truss bridge, by The Hood

The Hood, maintainer of Pak128.Britain is working hard to bring more bridges to the pakset.

An example, a steel truss bridge in player colour, can be seen to the left.

The result, which is outstanding, can be seen in the forum. In final form they could be seen in the next version of the pakset, which is likely to be released before spring.
