Re: King_Coal SAM

Thank you. It was quite a learning experience. You will find a fair amount of change in difficulty depending on where you start. The tough part was trying to get balance between playability and difficulty. Anyway, thanks again for your kind remarks. Slider

Easy Event Images

Hi Guys, I confess I'm a newbie at this modding business, but I've been working on a map for a while and found this easy method for creating event images to match those in the original game. These would be the images used in the newspapers to announce the completion of a condition, or the announceme...

Re: ChicagoToTheRockies map; full Scenario Objectives and more!

Just finished my first run at this. Great job ChooChoo. This was my first attempt at running a mod. It's so nice when things go smoothly - especially for an old character like me. Thanks for your hard work. Slider

question on stock

Hi Folks, I've got a game going against an AI player. I hold 5 stock certificates in my company, and he holds 7. I thought there were only 10 for each company. I've looked at the readme, but I find no change listed there. Has anyone else run into this? Slider

Thanks folks

I appreciate the replies guys. Mikeyc, I suspect you hit the nail on the head. I'll bet this is firewall related.

I downloaded the installer for a map called Africa Diamonds and saved it. When I opened the file and ...
