The only time you want less is on very complex routing where 2 or more trains share the same station entry point and one of th...

Re: Can you go bankrupt?

Hi Irg, Once you are in the red (out of money) you cannot lay track or stations or upgrade stations for that matter. You cannot plant annexes either. The ONLY thing you can do in the red as far as purchasing goes is: Purchase Engines/Trains. So keep that in mind, if you are cutting it close, you wan...

Re: FAQ Strategy and Game-play

Question: I am having trouble with routing; my trains are getting stuck! How can I avoid routing problems? Answer: There are really two answers to this and which one to use depends on your motivation for playing this game. If you are using SMR as a train table, and just want to see pretty, realisti...

Re: NAFTA Phase I

Always with the "ship 100 carloads"! Looks like a good map, I'll have to check it out.... been months since I actually played!

EDIT: Just realized this is an old thread and I already played this map... so guess I'll have to play it again.

Re: FAQ Strategy and Game-play

Question: Are there any rules in online game play? Like, is it legal to steal goods from other players? Answer: The game is clearly designed for "stealing", so unless otherwise agreed, "stealing" is not only legal - it is a huge component of the game! The thing to understand here is what you actual...

Re: FAQ Strategy and Game-play

Question: What is better: To BUY an industry or to BUILD an industry? Answer: It depends. :D There are really no set rules on pricing issues... way too many variables go into the equation of how much do I pay. For example, it is not a rule that you should never pay more than $500k for an industry s...

Re: FAQ Strategy and Game-play

Question: When should I buy or sell my stock, which opponent's stock should I purchase first, and what are the overall stock strategies of the game? These questions have pretty complex answers, but the overall stock strategy needs to be understood to answer them, so I think it is best to have stock...

Re: FAQ Discussion.

The only thing I think we should consider is: Having 2 separate FAQs or have 2 major sections of 1 FAQ. I think one should be dedicated to Modding issues (how to add industries, how to install SAMs, etc. And a 2nd one devoted to game play itself. eg: "How do I fix a train that does x" or "What makes...

Re: Borneo Island Map Final Release

OK, so I tried it again, with AI included :D Managed to buy them out just before the end of the first era. Luckily, they had built useful networks, which I could use. 8) In the end, I had 49 trains running in a massive clockwork operation. Those automobile runs are top profit makers. Finished 18 ye...
