Simutrans Experimental sets priorities, asks for coders
+James Petts the developer in lead of Simutrans Experimental is about to finish a larger real-life project and expects to have more time to devote to improving the simulation. He discusses priorities for the next steps to follow and rallies help from people with coding experience in the following forum thread:

http://forum.simutrans.com/index.php?topic=14690.0

Simutrans Experimental is a fork of Simutrans, it creates a much deeper economic simulation leading to higher complexity and accepting somewhat rougher edges.

+Stephen Gunnell thank you for replying, and providing much more detail.

Do I understand you correctly that you are describing a problem you have only with standard Simutrans?

Please bear in mind that many aspects very much dependt on the pakset, wich contains graphics and defines the game parameters. Would you please also mention which pakset you are using (pak64 is the default, but there are also countless others, eg, pak128 and pak128.britain.)?

Industry chains are spawned when the map population grows over a certain threshold. Instead of turning off, you can try to change this value. It might be too high. Many of these economic and sociological models are very simple. Often they work fairly under certain conditions, fail however when other parameters are changed. For example, city growth is much too fast for long running online games, other models break in very large, or very small, or very dense settings, the list can go on endlessly.

If you are interested in finding out why exactly it breaks down for you, you could post a message describing it on the forum. There is usually much interest in such things. Were you to do it, please also include: Which version you are using, which pakset and which version, and ideally, perhaps even a savegame where it can be seen: http://forum.simutrans.com/index.php?board=7.0

Simutrans nightly build server down

The nigtly build server is permanently down. The server provided binaries (executable files) of development snapshots for Linux, Win and Mac.

Werniman provided the service at least since 2007. Due to time constraint and a great amount of work required to keep things running he cannot continue to provide this service anymore. There are discussions among the devs to set up a new nightly system. Main difficulty are cross-compiles for Mac and Windows. (It took werniman over a year to get stable automated Mac builds.)

p.s.: I'm very thankful for the work werniman invested and that he did it so reliable. I shall be gladly forwarding all thank-you-comments posted here to him.

Simutrans 120.0.1

Prissi announced the release of a new version of Simutrans at the international forum:

_This is version is mostly a bugfixing release, aiming at a stable experience with the climates which neighbour each other, lakes and two levels of slopes. Currently these features are acknowledged by nearly all major pak sets (with the exception of pak64.german).

Just remember: waypoints do no longer act as signals. If you exploited this feature, then you will need rebuilding these routes._
