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.


Pak128.Britain 1.09 released!

Many thanks to prissi for compiling a release of pak128.Britain 1.09 to go with the new simutrans executable 111. As this is the first release in a year, there are quite a few fixes/changes from 1.08, too many for me to remember but I will try to summarise below:
– many more snow images
– planes
– basic narrow gauge
– more ships and trains
– more citybuildings and attractions
– some player colour stations
– player barriers

New releases of pak64.japan and Pak128.Britain-Ex

Good news for all pakset lovers, we have new releases of old well known paksets.

The Simutrans experimental development team has released a new version of the pak128.Brittain-Ex. The v0.7 seems to be a testing and evaluation version, but it should balance better with Simutrans-Experimental than the standard Pak128.Britain. The dev team has done a great deal of work on balancing this pakset since version 0.6, so it should work considerably better. As a side note, it doesn’t support all Simutrans-Experimental features yet.

You can download it here. More details at International Simutrans Forum.

pak64.japanOn the other hand, the pak64.japan is back after major overhaul. The content is under a mixture of licenses so it won’t be hosted at Sourceforge, but the binaries and the source are available here. Besides, the texts are available for translation at Simutranslator.

More details at International Simutrans Forum.
