We have recently been joined by Steven Hoefel, a contributor to the TTDPatch project. He has already done some excellent work on adapting the UI to the English translation as well as other tweaks to the game. He has uploaded screenshots of his progress to his personal photo album. See for example this nice shot of FreeTrain’s scheduling system in action! His changes are not in SVN yet, but he has promised to bless the community with a meaty patch soon.
Elsewhere in the news, I have begun work on bringing the “Additional Plugin Set” to the non-Japanese speaking crowd. This is a package containing practically every plugin ever made for FreeTrain, all nicely packaged and documented. The unpacked archive takes up a whooping 124 MB of disk space and contains no less than 233 plugins! These plugins introduces a host of new trains, structures and other goodies. I haven’t had the time to look through them all, but I’ve seen airport terminals, university campuses, and roller coasters, just to mention a few. All this content will take a while to translate, so please be patient!
