Help with SAM

Post by TanezKalrade » Tue Dec 06, 2011 8:14 pm

Hey all,

I've just started to try to build a new map, and have some questions:

1) I am trying to use all of the types that come with the game (including Europe, USA, German, etc). How do I get those to appear on the Industry list?

2) I want to put a few of the modded trains in this forum into this game, how would I do the 4-8-8-4 BigBoy?

3) When I attempted to run the game from my custom map, it kept only one of the cities, and moved all the industries I placed within just a few squares of that one city. Any thoughts?

I used the random industry placement (I just wanted to see how it was coming along).

4) How do you create rivers? I see how to paint them on the map, but how does the game know that they need a bridge there?

I'm not much of an artist, so any thoughts would be great to make a map more realistic...

I'm trying to make a map of Wyoming/Northern Colorado/Nebraska, etc.

Best start by reading here:

Bridges are not built in the editor btw, they are built while playing the map. :D
