SYPOR SAM

Post by slider38 » Fri Jun 03, 2011 3:32 pm

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 30 to 40 minutes.

Now go deliver some of Aladin's Magic Lamps, Captain Hook's fish, or tunnel your way into the Big Rock Candy Mountain.

Just a few thoughts on this map. This was designed for the entertainment of young folks and to be played as a solo map or in Table Top mode. That said, there are 4 starting locations so play against AI is possible. No testing against AI was done. While I know the map will function with AI, I have no idea what the playability with them would be. This map is not difficult and was not meant to be. It was designed to hopefully make a child smile. My youngest grandson is visiting in a couple of weeks and I look forward to showing it to him. Money should not be an issue in this scenario. Delivery of some mail and passengers should keep the funds flowing. And then there are the diamonds.... Enjoy.

Excellent idea, Slider! What I like especially is that your maps are always fully tested before being released, so ... not a single crash. Event file OK; no .fpks; loads without problems.
A few "magic" views. :D

Thanks Karstan, Like those frigates I borrowed from Civ 4? Anything to add a little interest. Nice screenshots by the way. Slider

Hey Karstan, I meant to ask, just for my own information, how long did it take you to go through this scenario? I know how long it took me, but I had the advantage of prior knowledge of the map and it's conditions. Thanks, Slider

Hi Slider, I think it took me about two hours, initially, on easy level Financier.

Tried it again this morning, about 35 minutes as Robber Baron (high speed most of the time), starting from Old Smokey. Finished a bit later in terms of game time (13 years to spare), since the money flows are lower. But I was able to optimize the routes. Cheers! :D
