    A very common error that I frequently do is using PASSENGER train stations instead of GOODS train station. Please check if you did that. They have a different icon.

    Urban Games is located in Switzerland, so they built Swiss trains first.

    Anyway, there a are a lot of mods around, as FX2K pointed out.

    About the Big Boy: there was a discussion in the German forum pointing out that the Big Boy was to big for the Sharp Curves which are allowed in TF, making turns look ugly. I think nobody builds a mod for it at the time, sorry.

    Though this should be easy to implement, it is a must have.

    Hey Mikael: maybe it would be easy to include a “previous seed” button in the main menu. You just save all used seeds somewhere. This would be easy for all users.

    I Also agree with FX2K about the blocked streets when there are vehicles. If you want to prevent this, you have to stop all trams far away from the construction site, but sometimes it is just no fun to do all this micromanagement. The game should take care of that. Or at least it should be more comfortable.

    Maybe there could be a “construction site” feature. You just define the area with some easy mouse  clicks where you don’t want any traffic or AI building effords. Then you do what you want and release the area again.  This would also be a very realistic way of blocking construction sites – doesn’t it work this way in reality as well?

    +1 from me too.

    I this case I say: The more automatic the better. I hate micromanagement!

    I don’t know what’s possible but at least the function “drop all passengers by the next stop, return to the depot and send another vehicle on track” is the least comfort I’d like to see.

    Better if I can automate more, like a button (next to the $ sign in the line list), saying: replace all vehicles on this line (without loosing passengers) and replace them by …  (open the “buy vehicles” dialog and let the user choose which one and how many) would be great.

    Even better: replace all (select age and/or vehicle time) by (select another vehicle) would be best. (like in RRT3)

    Well, my train ran out of the depot and reached the first station. (I got a steam achievement for it), but then, the train stopped for the first time, saying there is no route. So I fiddled around a bit and –hurray! hurray!– the train got to the next station. This took me a couple of minutes.

    But then, the train was stuck again and I could not get a grip on it. I ran through the line several times, but it was built chaotically: with lots of crossings and so on. Tearing the track down was also not an option because other trains were stuck on the track as well.

    Finally I gave up.

    There must be at least more feedback. If all electrified track was, say, green and all no-electrified way red the gap would have been easy to spot. But in TF only the track with the mouse under it is colorized. This is not enough if you search for a single pixel, or just very few pixels!

    As long as electrified track is so complicated, I have to play only with the Steam and Diesel Trains.

    I try to build long railway connections, with trams delivering people to the stations in all cities. After connecting cities I try to feed them with goods too, via rail, for optimum growth. One source of goods is usually good enought for three cities.

    Update: after thinking about it, I realized that RRT3 alsways shew the whole track in colors, during electrification. Un-electrified  was blue, electrified pink. You can do the same with red & green if you wish, but the point is that the program must give decent feedback. (this would accord to my solution #3)

    in reply to: Bridges require way too many pillars #9745

    This one has my vote too. Maybe, if the devs wish, they can stay with the full lot of pillars for wooden bridges, but iron and brick brigdes should have less pillars.

    Maybe this can also be a difference between bridge times. What are the differences right now, only cost and visual? In RRT you could cross the more expensive bridges faster than wooden brigdes.

    in reply to: No Line usage for Goods stations? #9698

    Okay, goods and passengers have a maximum travel time of 20 minutes. Your train has a frequency of 9 minutes and it will take a while travel too. Try to put a second or even a third train onto the line.

    Secondly, the wood needs a travel time of 20 minutes max, too. So you need:

    wood –> (in 20 mins) —> sawmill –> (in 20 mins) —> city.

    If all this is connected it should work.

    Same for me. Someone posted that the game seems to clear the graphic card´s RAM (maybe some kind of garbage collection?), even on cards with more than 1GB.  Maybe there is an easy way to fix the problem for cards with more than 1GB (like mine) in another patch.

    This could also mean that running the game on the HD4000 on an i7 CPU might not encounter the “hanging” problem, though the game is slower from the start. Can anybody prove that? (I
    ve got an AMD cpu and cannot test it, unfortunaltely)
