SYPOR SAM

Start Young People On Railroads! This map is intended to entertain the young folks. I started this after reading a post stating that someone got back into SMR because their 2 year old enjoyed watching the trains. So here's one to try with your child or grandchild. You can play the whole scenario in ...

Re: Four Corners Dual Map - Part 1

Hey Karsten, I almost forgot. As to the source of the industries, engines, traincars, etc - I do no 3-D modeling. You are quite right about the shay- all I did was lighten it a little. In most cases I am taking either a standard model or someone elses and re-painting. I do all re-paints myself. Most...

Re: Four Corners Dual Map - Part 1

Hi Karsten, I spent a good deal of time on this map trying to improve my scenery after your comments concerning My Old Kentucky Home Map. In fact there is not a pixel on this map that did not have some form of added texture be it long grass, desert, trees or whatever. But this seems to be short of y...

Re: Four Corners Dual Map - Part 1

Hi Richardf269, Sorry if you found the number of villages a problem. As discussed in the Readme, the map was intended to be one requiring you to do some development. When the Solo map starts in 1850, none of the Four Corners area was part of a state - there was nothing out there. Perhaps I was tryin...

Re: Four Corners Dual Map - Part 1

Richardf269, You might check and make sure that there is nothing in your Custom Assets folder. Another option might be to try and restart with a fresh game start. You just go into the Sid Meier's Railroads folder in the My Games section of your My documents folder and rename the existing Sid Meier's...

Re: Four Corners Dual Map - Part 1

Hey Warll, Maybe it would be a good idea to get the AI and Solo versions out of the post and just leave the Combo version in place. There's really no need for anyone to download them separately. They just take up disk space.

Re: Four Corners Dual Map - Part 1

I'm sorry you'all are having trouble with the game. I've tested the new version 2 which allows you to select which mode you want to play from the Scenario Selection Screen and had no difficulty. Warll, I assume you've had no trouble or I'm sure I would have heard about it. I have heard nothing but n...

Re: Four Corners Dual Map - Part 1

Hi Warll, I successfully downloaded the new version of Four Corners and tested it some. It seems to switch back and forth just fine. The file setup in Usermaps looks good. I think you're good to go. Thanks for your help. I hope some folks will give it a try. Slider

Re: Four Corners Dual Map - Part 1

I tried downloading your new combo zip but I'm getting a 404 Page Not Found error. Something is amiss. Please re-check that link.

Re: Four Corners Dual Map - Part 1

Hi Warll, Think I've got this figured out. I have attached a zip with updated scenario files for use with your combo approach. They each call the different cities and industries RRT files. I also removed the original scenario, cities and industries files from usermaps (they're just extra files now) ...

Re: Four Corners Dual Map - Part 1

Hey Warll, I'm having issues trying to make the combo work correctly. I am getting the two maps dates to show up correctly when I switch from one to the other, but the cities and industries are not switching correctly. It seems that once it gets the AI cities and industries in it's head, it won't sw...

Re: My_Old_Kentucky_Home_SAM

Hello Hubbert, Hopefully someone with some Windows 7 knowledge will see this and respond. Not to leave you hanging, but I wanted to respond since you posted on this thread. I don't know what you are looking at as you stated that you downloaded the "monarchy map". Don't know what that is as this thre...
