Supporting the japanese Simutrans community

Well, it isn’t new that some days ago Japan was hit by a 10-meter tsunami and an earthquake (8.9 RC) damaged important facilities of the country, including several nuclear powerplants. Many lives lost and many people lost all.

Tears leave me alone,
Memories abandon me,
The rosebud brings hope.
Raj Halve

Since the Simutrans Community has a Japanese Forum, we want to express our most sincerely support to the Japanese Simutrans community and to Japan too, hoping the country will be rebuilt back as soon as possible.

Simutrans in Facebook

Facebook self portrait

Facebook by Ruben F. Castro

It’s a well known fact that nowdays Facebook is an important platform to promote something, thus some members of the Simutrans comunitty have decided to get Simutrans into this social network.

Firstly, we have recently created a Facebook Simutrans fan site, that contains several screenshots and the official logo too. Now you can list Simutrans under your games in your facebook profile and colaborate with images, comments or videos in the wall.

On the other hand, some time ago several people already created a Facebook Simutrans fan group. There are no admins in the group and it’s not very crowded indeed but we expect to boost it with the new fan site. Anyway, the group has 168 members, so it’s growing slow but sure.

We hope you to join us in Facebook in order to promote the game and reach to more potential players.
