In this news article we go into two things: Firstly, there is a new translator, and secondly, we are entering into a partnership with PeDePe.
A review of the Advent campaigns
In this article we draw a conclusion about the Advent and Christmas campaigns. Unfortunately, there were individual incidents, including leaks and attempts at fraud, which we do not approve of. Otherwise, the campaigns were very successful again this year.
Campaigns around Advent & Christmas 2021
There will be an advent calendar again this year. Every day in December you will receive exclusive content from the community, and there are also various prizes from AEROSOFT and HALYCON to be won. The first competition will take place on 28 November!
Innovations until 9 November 2021
In this article we summarise changes from the end of September to the beginning of November. First, some sad news: A long-time expert is retiring from OMSI. Furthermore, as usual, we have implemented some suggestions and added new AddOns to the filebase.
Contribution to the Advent calendar 2021
The christmas time is approaching, in the first stores you can buy gingerbread and the first mulled wine is already available: Like last year we would like to offer you an advent calendar with freeware and payware products. But for this we need YOUR help!
Innovations until 19 September 2021
In this article we summarise minor changes to the WebDisk from mid-June to September 2021.
The WebDisk gets a unified set of rules
As usual with other platforms, WebDisk is now - after a long preparation - also getting a set of rules. We want to create uniform rules and clarify what is allowed here and what is not. We are open for feedback. In this article we describe the further procedure.
A few legal notes about modding
Recently we often get questions and messages that are of a legal nature. In this article we go into some of the most common topics, these are O3D files, modifications to payware/freeware and what to look out for in collaborations.
However, we do NOT GIVE BINDING LEGAL ADVICE here (of course we are not allowed to do so), but only state how things are handled in WebDisk by the team. Errors cannot be excluded.
Fictitious repaints of "regiobus Potsdam Mittelmark"
We would like to inform you that due to trademark law, fictitious repaints of the company "regiobus Potsdam Mittelmark GmbH" (Germany) are no longer allowed in our filebase.
Innovations until 13 June 2021
There hasn't been any news for a long time - but we can assure you that work is still going on. Behind the scenes, the next update and the new set of rules for the WebDisk are being prepared. Besides, some things have changed and we will inform you about them here.
Innovations until April 18, 2021
Updates until 7 March 2021
As usual, you will find a list of new features and fixed bugs here. In addition to two new areas in the forum and changed reactions, a team member left us at the beginning of March and there was a DDoS attack, which was quickly averted. OMSI also celebrated its tenth birthday.
What are Release questions and how the Webdisk handles them?
Today let's see a somewhat difficult topic: Recently, there have been more and more release discussions in the forum. Basically, requests for a release date or the progress of a project are not welcome in the community; they lead to frustration for the developers and the users.
Innovations until 14 February 2021
As usual, this article contains a list of new features and fixed bugs. In the new year there have not been so many changes yet, which is why there have not been any news for a long time, but today we would like to give you a small overview. Among other things, we welcome a new team member to the OMSI Experts. Unfortunately, we had to restrict two functions (reactions and reviews), because there have been a lot of problems in the past months.
We disable negative reactions
We have decided to disable negative reactions due to the ongoing problems. However, all previous reactions will remain.
From now on, we moderate also reviews in the filebase, after numerous problems and complaints in the past. This means that all reviews are manually checked by a moderator and activated. In this article we set some things right regarding reviews and give a short guideline.
