Simcity updates, November 13

Took me about one month for this release but nevertheless here it is; one of the most important update is that the romanian railways simulator, uses the same engine that the Swisstrains does. Now you can zoom out to see whole Romania and despite the fact that it has a surface 5x times bigger than Switzerland, the romanian railways network has the same length (~5,000 km) and 10x less(!) trains during one day of operations.


  • Flyout with vehicle details: if you click on any vehicle(marker) you get detailed information about: name of the vehicle, a link to the provider(SBB, CFR), start/terminus stations and the status of the vehicle (if in motion – the next station and current speed; if in a station – when is departing that station).
  • Vehicles with timetables spanning across two days are available now(before they were removed from the map after 23:59:59). In Switzerland there are not too many vehicles running after midnight but in Romania there are a lot, so therefore this feature is now available.
  • The vectors network is now a directed graph. This means that the polylines used for AB route are not the same ones (reversed) that are used for the BA route. The best example is for the tracks between Brunnen and Flüelen where the vehicles are using two different ways depending on the direction of the train.
  • Speaking of Flüelen, I added all tunnels of the Gotthard line, including the famous spiral ones.
  • The simulation has now a more “stable” URL, and in the next release(s) will migrate it to

    Salut Vasile ! Ti-am luat si eu codul sursa pentru ca vreau sa fac si eu o simulare de Transport in Comun pe Timisoara ( Tramvai in special ) . am reusit sa pun in picioare un server Apache dar am probleme cu maps.html . Editez cu Notepad , dar nu reusesc sa setez locatia pe timisoara , in HTML-ul tau se incarca automat harta Elvetiei . Am si PublisherID pe API dar nu reusesc . Cum setez coordinatele la nivel de Timisoara . Salutare ! si astept un raspuns cat se poate de rapid .

    Salut Raoul,

    Raoul :
    Cum setez coordinatele la nivel de Timisoara . Salutare ! si astept un raspuns cat se poate de rapid .

    Locatia initiala se seteaza in map.js, variabila start (linia 384). Schimba latitudinea si longitudinea cu coordonatele geografice ale Timisoarei.

    Mai mult ca sigur va trebui sa comentezi apelul catre map_layers_add() in linia 98, altfel Timisoara va fii “mascata” de catre harta Elvetiei.
