The International Simutrans Forum has now new forum rules and guidelines

The International Simutrans Forum has now new forum rules and guidelines and came to replace the old forum rules from 2008 with 3 pages of text (obviously nobody would not want to read that =P) . The new version is very short and covers all needs of the community.

From the Forum rules and guidelines official topic:

These guidelines are here to facilitate the smooth operation of the forum and to protect the community as well as their activities and works. Make sure you have read them. These are not, for the most part, hard and fast rules; in fact, they can help you to better enjoy your stay here.

Now, please our dear members and upcoming ones, read it and behave.  :-)

Graphic archive registration disabled

haltSince the spammers registering at Graphic archive greatly outnumbered actual painters, user registration has been disabled. The primary function of the Archive is being easily accessible storage for templates and graphics, not a place for development and comments. So, disabling registration does not change much.

  • If you wish to use Graphic archive as an author, please contact me (VS) or Vilvoh, preferably on forum.
  • If you just want to browse and download files, no registration is needed – all content is visible to guests.

Challenge of the Day: Polskanada February

trophyBalsamo, a member of our community, has opened a challenge for people to participate in:

This challenge is simple. There is a map with ten cities. There is a sea in the center. One of the cities is small and far from the rest, isolated on its own island. So the goal for the game is to reach the highest population for that city in 15 years. The second goal is to have the highest population overall.

If you are interested, check out the challenge topic in our forum:
