Version 0.97 is no longer portable, saves settings to AppData.

olliebean on 2016-07-09 21:33

As mentioned in PE Soft's comment above, version 0.97 *is* portable if you download the executable file version, it stores its settings in the same directory as the EXE file. I have tested this and nothing is stored in %appdata% or in the registry.

Charming old-school graphics, seems to have a fairly active community, constantly updated, now at v112.3, don't know if portable.

Midas on 2013-12-19 17:18

Cool, didn't even know this existed... 8)

The current website link points to the 128 bit 'pakset' page, Simutrans main site is at http://www.simutrans.com/en/.

BTW, for a simpler multi-platform portable OSS alternative, check out OpenTTD:

This entry needed a desperate clean-up and update. I've replaced the pak128 download link with the actual game and added a note about the graphics paks. The rest of the entry has been updated appropriately.
