When I load this map, it crashs to desktop.
Do you have any other custom map installed? Was the my games/sid meier’s railroads folder empty of any custom maps before you installed?
Great map best so far
Great map! I really enjoyed it. Thanks
Nice map but i couldn’t deliver steel to the lost city in the end.
Any idear what i did wrong?
Great map! =D
Vanhuyse, did you try to build the automobile factory there? Worked here.
Soo I like the map though Some trains won’t deliver loads like asked also I would like that Intercontinental Mod but it’s so buggy and it crashes on the one map I’d love to play the U.S.A Also I want to know if there is any mod out there that gives out more trains? and Tenders? that will not crash easy to install and will work on this map? I can’t find any train mods just maps I could careless for maps tbh just trains and tenders! Any help? even if no one ever visits this place much..
Try this website.

I don’t remember but i think not.
This is a map with great potential but unfortunately it does not allow me to move some resources, they are greyed-out even when the city demanding the particular resource, and it’s connected to the raw material (be it a mine or wood). I’ve corrected the spelling of Amarillo and increased the production of some raw materials, but the lack of connectivity as explained above is troublesome.
JayMar – if a city is demanding a particular ‘Resource’, then it already HAS the Industry required. If you click on the city you will get a screen that shows you which Industries are there and whether or not you can built one. Clicking on the icon for an Industry in that screen will allow you to buy or bid on that particular Industry.
I appreciate you quick response. I understand what you posted. My problem is different. For example, El Paso requires coal to turn into steel, so I connect them and proceed with delivering the raw materials. Eventually when I have enough steel then I send the train to Monclova to make automobiles. Now if I wanted to send more coal to El Paso from other adjacent mines, in order to increase the volume of coal and steel and cars, eventually, it does not allow me. In other words, the game only allows me to connect one coal mine instead of multiple as in the original maps. When I try connecting after building the link between another mine and El Paso it’s all grayed-out. If I find another coal-to-steel city and I try connecting to Monclova by a different route, again it does not allow me. My version of Texas is 1.18, maybe there is another one correcting this problem. Again, thank you.
That also sounds weird…. There is a SAM version of this built from his 1.3 on this forum: http://smrsimple.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=40462#p40462 . The SAM can be found here: http://www.sidmeiersrailroads.net/viewtopic.php?p=12635#p12635 . We are about to move it to the final posting along with the other 176 SAM maps. You do have yours updated to the Sid Meier’s Railroads! Patch 1.10, right?
I have never come across the bug you describe. Most of what you describe would fit with track that looks “connected”, while in fact not being connected. It’s impossible to buy a train for those routes because the game greys out any destination that isn’t properly connected to the starting stop of a new train.
Something to watch is that a depot will not allow a fourth track to be added. Stations and Terminals do. There are also a few quirks with track laying especially when laid in very short segments. Unless you can upload your saved game somewhere, this is the best guess I have.
JayMar – I left a message, but since I gave internet addresses it has to be ‘monitired’ before it becomes visible.
The SAM version can be found by going to the CHAT section of the forum of this site and looking on the first page for ‘Hi, nooby with some questions!’. On the last post by vzbob his signature is the web address for his site. There you will find a thread for this map and the latest tested version of it.
Come join us, you’ll enjoy it!
I am so disappointed in the game as a whole. This is by far the buggiest program I have ever played. If it weren’t for the auto saves I would have stopped playing this a long time ago. I have played it every single day for the last 4-5 months, suddenly today it does not even want to load. I am done! Firaxis should have done something a longtime ago but obviously they just take the money and run. They knew this game was crappy. I am effing done with this crap!
Well I changed my mind. I went ahead and kept some of the changes I made to the map and re-installed SMR and patched it. Now it’s working, but still crashing every so often. As I have said, if it were not for the autosaves I would have given up. I found the 1.3 version and will install it and see. The game runs best in a Windows 7 32 bit environment. It’s crappy in WinXP and a little jerky in W10. I really love this game it is just frustrating. Back in the mid 80s I worked for Microprose on games for the Commodore 64 and the Amiga and remember Sid Meiers very well. I am now almost 80 and retired but still love games. I enjoy changing variables and personalize most games.
JayMar – go over to the other web site here: http://www.sidmeiersrailroads.net/portal.php We can assist you in finding out what your problem is. I have had this game on XP since it came out and I and the others have done wonders with it. Over 170 maps to play!
Is there a way to add cities and resources to this map? I never use Tulsa, Springfield, etc so I want to make Las Cruces close to El Paso and Albuquerque (near the x-100 and y 100). I’ve tried changing Tulsa and it crashes. I’ve tried changin the oil in the nearby area, and it crashes. I’ve changed both the cities and names. Any help would be appreciated.
