With the help of c477 and Steven Hoefel, the translation of the ‘Additional Plugin Set’ is going ahead at a breakneck speed. All structures have already been translated, so what remains is the majority of train plugins. There are dozens of them, though, and contain in total well over a hundred different trains, so it’s no easy task. Almost all are Japanese trains, but there are also a lesser number of American, French, and Italian ones.
Elsewhere in the news, FreeTrain has been steadily climbing in rank at SourceForge.net. Before the first release, our rank hovered around 20,000 but soon after the release, it jumped to 683. As of writing, it has climbed to 384 putting us among the top ten simulation game projects, ahead of heavyweights such as OpenTTD!
