Difficult to make profit with 128 mapsize.

In the 128 mapsize is it more difficult to make profit. than in the older version.

Only a oil ship on a very long distance make profit.
On shorter distances it makes less profit than in the older version of Simutrans.

Is ther any solotion to mak iet the same as in the original simutrans.

The 128 pixel object set is definitely harder to play.

As far as I know, the maintainer of the set did this intentionally, but he is listening to feedback and will probably rebalance the set if too many complaints come in. You can file feedback here:

Please note that Tomas Kubes the maintainer of the 128 pixel object set does usually not read this forum. If you want to be sure he knows about the problem, please post in the Simutrans feedback forum.

How to make the game easier?

1) You can raise the starting money in simuconf.tab
2) You can lower the maintainance cost for stops and stations in simuconf.tab
3) You can use the -freeplay command line switch to turn off the bankrupticy check

You cannot alter the transport fees or vehicle running costs without recompiling the PAK file. But I guess in that case it's easier to contact Tomas and tell him.
