12.29/16: Back around 2010 I picked up a copy of Trainz Simulator 2010 Engineers Edition... When I am so friggin' bored i just need something to occupy myself and ever since I got a PS 1 in the late 90s I have gotten into gaming. But I like strategy type games, epic games... I do not have the nervous system, reflexes or interest in first Person shooter/RPG games at all. To be ffair if "Call of Duty came oout in 1977... I would have gone insane foor it but back then we played real life First Person Shooters in a game called "guns" with cap guns and plastic facsimiles of Tommy Guns that went "quackqauackwquack"!! We would set up ambushes as we ran around the neighborhood with plastick pistols! Try doing that today in our politically correct militarized police state! LOL! I remember "Pong" but was a little too late for Atari and Space Invaders (but did play those at arcades!)... On PlayStation I loved "Panzer General" fighting the campaigns of WWII with experience gaining units of tanks and infantry, artillery and aircraft... Loved SIM City as long as I could use the million dollar cheat because building a giant city was more interesting to me than the gaming aspect of tax rates and water supply... Civ II was a big fav but III sucked ass! The board was too small and if you didn't find a source of iron you were screwed! Plus the other empires all they ever did was spam out units and rush you before you could gain a breath! Age of Empires/Age of Kings... much fun but then again that whole AI Spam and Rush tedium! Then I discovered Shogun Total war which led to Medieval total War... I could still play that game if I could run it! Epic Battles! Strategy and turn based building and fun! XL Mod was amazing! But alas even my old computer needed a re-install and of course since it such an old game support is non-existent and can't down load the XL Mod anywhere and any time I tried to play it it would CTD... Medieval TW II just plain sucks in comparison! Battles are not so epic... Yes! Awesome graphics but who cares how cool it looks if all you're doing are dinky 10 minute battles or city sieges!
Which brings me to TS 2010... I can run trains! But no SD45s orSD9s! Cool are the BN SD40-2s but no ICG Paducah Geeps! Been editing the Saginaw Sub Route for practice switching trains and running freights... But it's so damn Glitchy! And no rhyme or reason to derailment! I really don't crave that level of stupid "realism", I just want a model railroad experience but without the prohibitive costs in energy and $$$$$$$$! I hope to figure this strange egg out there is a lot of good possibilities to TS 2010... I know there are some patches but the installing of them seems confusing. Any help or advise in the Trainz Simulator world would be well appreciated!
