“For Kids *And * Grownups”

Very addictive sport. I have played hours upon hours now and neglected my family and chores in the process. I finally backed off and play with it every once in awhile. Most of it is XML file driven and I learned how to edit the files to change various settings along with adding industries, goods and cars to the first maps. This kept the game clean. There is also a concealed terrain map editor if you would like to attempt to create your personal (needs the patch first), although I have yet to create some of mine as amazing as the included maps.Railroads! Runs on Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8. Be sure you get the v1.10 patch. I cant comment on multiplayer as I never use it. The directions for receiving the patch and setting up the editor option are widely available online. I would also suggest checking out the 3GB (LAA) enabler trick to prevent game crashes after ~3000 miles of track are laid. Also, you may choose to turn off automatic game saves if you experience an SSD. It writes them all of the time, over and over again.

“Its An Old Game, Works Most Of The Time”

I love the match. I was just searching for something to unwind with. The downside is that it isn’t the match. The maps it includes dont crash but many of the maps others have made do. I’ve Win 10 Pro/64 along with the match was intended for Win XP. There are a few mods which may be done and I run it in compatibility mode. Both of these help quite a bit. Theres not much to really complain about. A new version for Win 10 will be fine.

“High In Graphics! ”

This game is fantastic for me (62+yo) I really like the images at which the engineer at the steam engine leans out the window and waves! While still challenging the game play is streaght relitively easy and forward. For all those gamers out there who enjoy a genuine hard challenging game which keeps you guessing, this could give you fairley fast and I’d suggest Railroad Pioneer instead. If you like graphics then this is the game for you. The trains are highly detailed and you can even change the colour and logo in mid game. The trains fill and load their cars using the raw product such as cattle unloading and loading the cattle cars, the ore and coal are packed from bins to the automobiles, logs are loaded with cranes, fish are filled with nets into tanks and the channels load and unload mail and passengers, and there’s even individuals walking round town and station that you could zoom in to about 20 ft! This match apeals to child in me and I believe this game will appeal to many younger kids (even in the oldest people) which arent hard core players.
