    Post

    Please do not forget that creating schedules for passengers is totally different on Classic and SoE servers. Baron did not tell, which one he is playing. On classic Thomas is right, there is a + above the waggons in the schedule window and clicking it, will pick up new passengers. Then your next step should be to set the next destination, either back to the start town, or on to a third one. On SoE you pick them up at desitination town, by clicking the town again, and then click the town where to…

  • Quote from JimBahn: “It would be good to have some more examples to get a bigger picture. Also from the other participants. I am also interested in positive examples from other games or websites. ” Well, the very first post of Jay links to a website that gives a lot of information. I only play 2 online games, RN and Siedler (settlers) so I cannot give many examples. Siedler is easier for me to get the information, with the exception of some of their chats, where they use very dark pink or dark g…

    I think, it's a good idea to ask support for your bonuscode, if you missed the mail.

  • Quote from mmmcheesywaffles: “sorry no fancy artwork ” No problem, I like the ideas and the change of titles. OK, here is another one: wbb.rail-nation.com/index.php?…9ad084f8893882cdd7de5742b

  • Hi, I just came across a strange example. OK, the title says "colourblind" which means, players cannot see any colour informaion at all. More often players have weaknesses on red, blue or yellow. And I suggest to include them into the discussion. I am slightly weak on red. Not very much (I still got all licences to sail ships) but I know about it, and I know it means that I am weak on distinguishing variations of green from each other. Strange how it works, but it goes that way (for me). So, I j…

  • Here is another example, the nations chat: wbb.rail-nation.com/index.php?…9ad084f8893882cdd7de5742b This is the chat I can only read, when I get really close to the screen. The color contrast checker tells us handicapped people class AA or AAA cannot read it, the contrast does not go with the W3C suggestions. Only AA people could read the chat ... if it were in 18 pt font ... but it isn't. And this is an example where color changes would be very simple to prog, even if users could set them.

  • Thank you Samisu, let me start with one example, which is clearly readable for me (slightliy red blind), and which was changed by the devs about 1-2 months ago. It is about the not yet researched machines in the research screen. It used much more transparency before, and it was definitely not readable from some distance. I used a contrast checker to show you the results as they are now The part of the UI checked I put in to he upper right: wbb.rail-nation.com/index.php?…9ad084f8893882cdd7de5742b…

  • Oh, mmmcheesy waffles, you tell all the reasons, why I was writing my posts. When I develop games (for virtual worlds) I get into touch with the players, I want to get to know them (same when I write business software). Cause, only when a developer or stylists gets in contact with their customers,with the players, they get to know them, and get to know their needs. It is hard to tell it, but handicapped people or people with deseases have no other place to meet people than the internet. I would …

  • Thank you Jay. This is something I try to bring up in the German forum since the User Interface was changed. They told me, they are proud to have found color schemes that fit so nicely, but did not react to use color contrast according to the W3C suggestions to make the game accessible for handicapped people. The other negative point on this is the use of transparency, which adds to the difficulties to get the information, if you are color blind. In fact, when I showed them some examples, they s…

  • Again ... a German technician told us, there will be a time for evaluation and then gold and plus will be transferred manually. So I guess you need to be patient, evaluation and manual transfer for 10 k players will take some time.

    Thank you Aneiyaa, and thank you Samisu for your answers and also for the new information today. There is one point I really do not understand. Even after your post of today, Samisu. Anyone of the RN team tells us, they were so surprised of the amount of players who joined, and that the server was not able to deal with that lot of players. But when I remember back, 3-4 years ago, 10 k players were the normal count. They were lagging a bit at start, because we all wanted to log in to "our" town .…

    Wow, Aneiyaa, this is a very good summary. I totally agree to all of your points. I would like to translate it and post it in the German part of the forum, where the discussion is heated, but no post sums it up as fair and factual as you do. One addition to "The server" I don't understand the failures and crashes. Because ... 4 years ago, 10 k players on a server were normal. It worked. There were crashes and issues too, but not that many. During the years, the team always told us they were maki…

    Saphirus explained it in the German forum: Currently there is a bug. Right after endgame, the game closes. Normally the server would automatically create a new link in lobby and logon screens to get back into the game. This is not happening at the moment. The bug works on all servers. Tech guys will set the links to login again manaually till the bug is fixed. But that takes some time (expecially on weekends). So, be patient, some day in the future the servers will return right after end game, m…

    Hi crj9, as the tech guys told us, this will happen to each server in the near future. Right after the end game, the server shuts down the game, and - here is the bug - will not create a link on the lobby page (so you cannot log in again). Untill that bug is fixed, they will set up the lobby and logon link manually ... and they need some time for that, so you can log in again after a short time. They are working on a permanent fix. That's a free translation of what Saphirus told us in a differen…
