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.

The CURRENT (2020-11-12) "offline" aka portable version instrustions:

Lots of forum searching to find this "stand-alone/offline portable install method note".

The "complete" stand-alone offline version is found here:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/simutrans/files/Simutrans%20complete/102-2-2/

Optional to reduce size:

Downloading the smallest "graphics pak" which is: "Pak32 Comic" found here:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/simutrans/files/pak32.comic/pak32.comic%20for%20102-0/

THEN renamE the folder from "pak32" to "pak" and delete/replace the original.

Remove all languages/fonts but the main one you speak/read (example: English for me with font "Prop-Latin1.bdf")

This will result in SMALLEST SIZE, current graphics game: unzipped, file "fixed" and UPX'ed (lzma) compressed size: 4.19mb

aazard on 2020-11-12 00:49

@ 4.19mb in on drive size; this is the most current (still being updated) simcity/open TTD like game that is will run on ANY PC current enough to have a USB port.

*Note: as you might see from many of my posts I have a fever for "best bang per kb" in portable apps. Can we make lists here in forums?

CurrPorts v2.63 Updated

webfork on 12 Nov 2020
  • 130KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 11 Nov 2020
  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

CurrPorts displays the list of all currently opened networking ports on your local computer. For each TCP/IP and UDP port in the list, information about the process that opened the port is displayed, including the process name, full path of the process, version information of the process (product name, file description and so on), the time that the process was created and the user that created it.

In addition, CurrPorts allows you to close unwanted TCP connections, kill the process that opened the ports and save the TCP/UDP ports information to HTML file, XML file, or to tab-delimited text file. The program will automatically mark with pink suspicious ports owned by unidentified applications (applications without version information and icons).

I like this program. I recently used it to notice some suspicious looking port activities. I was able to close the ports down and then turn them to stealth using my firewall program. Then I used this program again and everything has looked normal ever since then. So I think this program may have helped me to stop some hackers or malware. All of my own internet activities and programs work normally so I really do think this program helped me stop something bad from happening.

CurrPorts v2.50 rel 12-MAR-2018
Noteworthy new function for the paranoïd among us :... ;-)

Port egress|ingress data size capture
("Sent Bytes" "Sent packets" "Received Bytes" "Received Packets")

Remember to activate two crucial options:
• select an "Auto Refresh" frequency
• tick "Collect send/receive Bytes"
