Simutrans Graphics Contest: Compass

Simutrans suports now a compass in game, which ought to help tremendously when rotating the map. Most pak-sets have no graphics for it yet. That's why Leartin started a new round of our graphics contest.

Those contests are always a good starting point for all who want to try painting some pixel art and help the game with it.

The submission deadline is 22 February. All the technical requirements can be found in the thread.

Simutrans Greenlit!

Simutrans has succeeded in the Greenlight process on Steam. While nothing is baring us from publishing there, a lot of work has still to be done before the game is ready.

Release 120.1.2 Withdrawn

The recent 120.1.2 release has been withdrawn for the time being, due to problems with the compiled executable on Windows 8 and newer. (For some users it crashes immediately after launch.) A new release is currently being worked on, in the meantime please fall back on the past stable release, version 120.1.1, that was released in November 2015. If a stable version is not required, you can also try a nightly build: http://nightly.simutrans.com/

We are very sorry for the nuisance the faulty release might have caused.

Bahasa Indonesia?

Is there interest in an Indonesian or Malay board on the international forum? We are currently discussing if we ought to open such a board. It would be helpful to know if there is would be any participation on it.

(Please note: I shall take a +1 as a sign of good will only, while I see an actual comment as showing enough commitment to count.)


ps.: I shall be very grateful, if someone were to translate this message to the language we discuss here.

Simutrans on Steam Greenlight

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=575085099

We plan to move to Steam. Therefore Simutrans is in the Greenlight process. If the game gets approved, it will be available for free on Steam. The distribution platform might help new players to get to know the game, and those who already play the game and also use steam an easier way to keep Simutrans up to date. If you don't use Steam, don't worry, all present ways of distribution, source code, binaries,
Windows-installer, and inclusion in many Linux installers will still be available.

Steam is a large game distribution platform, that means they sell games online, provide downloads that are started from within Steam. Steam is avaible for Windows, Mac-OS, and Linux (SteamOS). Greenlight is Steam's procedure to get games to the platform that do not have a large publisher behind them. I.e, indie-developers or open source. While Steam is commercial Simutrans will be free of charge or any other for-profit activities. The free and open-source license (Artistic License) under which it was originally released by Hajo Malthaner and in the following developed by countless volunteers requires this.

Steam users can vote for games to pass Greenlight, and if you have a Steam account, we should be very happy indeed if you did so.
