PAK128.german

Index
Change Language:

Requires Simutrans >= 120.x

Important:
We have moved the "old" Industrial chains with Version 0.9.1 to its own Subfolder "addons\Pak128.german".

Option 1:
  1. Who will also use a Savegame from Version <= 0.8, must copy this Subfolder:first in the Simutrans folder in (Windows) => "My files\simutrans" - (Linux) =>"home/Username/Simutrans"
  2. and then when starting ST select the Option "Load with Addons" .
VERY Important: THIS WILL NOT WORK if you use a simuconf.tab witch will load your preferred Pakset automatically!

Option 2:
If you won't move the folder Simutrans, then you can copy the content from the Folder addons\PAK128.german into (simutrans\PAK128.german).

Our recommendation: Replace the factories labeled "(outdated)" with the current ones. This requires although sometimes additional factory connections, lines and vehicle types, but it ensures the playability in future versions.

Miscellaneous:
PAK128.german shows the Simutrans transport system, embedded in typical German cities and industries according to the respective topographical region from the coast to the high mountains. The Trains and vehicles are thereby a bit bigger than they from the Standard-Pak 128. Most buildings, regardless of city or industry have consistently four views. Every Building- and Factory type has furthermore based on the region in which it is, a different Graphics, and in the latter different operation numbers of production. This means, that factories in the Ruhr area (Central German Uplands) have a higher production and a complete different look as such, from the ==>East Germany<== area. The same applies for the passengers generation of city buildings.
Climate zones:
In the Pak128.german forms the climate zones the german regions from the coast to the high mountains.

Playability:
The game can be played well with the existing economic system up from 1950. For earlier periods you can use the "-freeplay" switch, because the prices, costs and incomes are not synced completely. Playing with the Timeline is therefore from 1920 possible, but forces to limitations due to lack of vehicles or factories. Onwards from 1940 is the timeline quite playable.
Because the industrial chains reflecting the specific product focus from German landscapes should the Pak128.german played on maps with all climate zones. Only so appears the to the landscapes adjusted City buildings and sights.
The desired map must support the required heights what, depending on the selected map,adjusted size and water level more or less the case is.

We advise to two height-level per climate zone (for the coast is one enough), so that homogeneous cities with appropriate buildings and factories can be arise. The alpine foothills and - zones should include three levels. The value of hilliness should be low (max. 2).
With Simutrans 120.x can also flattered cards be used when the planes are assigned to other climate zones (regions).
The economic system of the Pak set and his alignment is at the Time still in development and therefore the vehicle prices, transportation costs as well as merchandise sales are not synced.

But this does not detract the play ability.

Recommend settings for the Landscape creation:

Water level:-2
Mountain height:260
Hilliness:0
Coast:-1
North-german plain:0
East Germany:2
Central-german upland:4
Alpine foothill:7

*Karte 33, 896x896 Kacheln; simutrans 120.2.x, PAK128.german 0.10.x. The results also depend on the selected card and the size from it.
