Re: The Great Northern

Well I learned a lesson while testing on the actual map. A 24 x 24 map is waaaay too big. A whole lot of dead space that can't possibly be filled given the limited number of industries that the game allows. I am in the process of re-working the map to get something in a size that is good for the gam...

Everything is built and passed the first test. Now it's time to start moving things to the actual map and start re-testing. All part of the fun :>)

Re: The Great Northern

Today I finished the Great Northern GP9 number 679. This engine has an interesting look with 3 lights on the rear rather than the typical 2.

Re: The Great Northern

I found and interesting picture of a double deck pig car a while back so I decided to give it a try.

The Great Northern

This map is a bit of an experiment. It is designed as a 24 by 24 map, significantly larger than anything I have tried before. Time will tell if my pc will run it. It works ok in the terrain editor, but that's hardly a real test. I have got the first 2 engines ready. First the Great Northern 4_6_0 nu...
