Hello,

For those of you who don't know, I have been taking an extended break from Trainz. However, now I regret to inform those who appreciated my presence on these forums that I will not be actively playing Trainz or participating in discussions on here.

This is not a rash decision made out of anger. It is one that took quite a bit of time and consideration because this community has been a part of my life since 2007. It's a tough thing for me to face, but as I have grown older, I have come to realize that I will not have the amount of time I used to have to dedicate to Trainz, or eventually any train simulator. I am growing older, unfortunately, and with age comes responsibility and priorities.

Another reason is not a matter of time, but motivation. I love route building, and I always will, but the motivation and creativity I once had is not there anymore. What used to be hours on end of aimless track laying and city construction is now a tedious process of making sure things are perfect. Perhaps that is my own fault, and that I take route building too seriously, but that's the way I build, and everyone takes a different approach to it.

With that said, I won't forget all that I learned from this community and the times that I have had with friends I have acquired, whether it be good or bad, going about it the easy or hard way.

However, for me, it is time to focus on my personal life and aspirations to finish high school, attend MODOC Railroad Academy, and become a licensed conductor, which in turn means I need to focus on school as well.

Again, thank you guys and N3V for the wonderful 7 years of entertainment.

Regards,

Blake
 
What about if someone gave you their route, for you to run ... Besides ... You can run ... You can leave ... but we will find you ... and you will be drawn back in ... No One Ever Leaves Trainz :cool:

Well I may mess around with it every now and then, but nothing serious whatsoever. I may still post on rare occasions on the forums if I have some photography I want to share, but that will be about it.
 
Not too far from doing the same thing. Difference is, with me and you, I'm just sick and tired of how crappy everything runs between this and T:ANE. As I write this comment, I'm doing the second DBR of the day with 349000 assets. Playing openttd in the meantime. Anyhow, don't be surprised if I leave too, blake.

Have you asked in the forums about what may be causing this? I didn't see anything although I don't catch even half the threads on here. Other people have had this issue but usually resolve it.
 
Why did you post? Everyone's busy. If you want to play trainz there's nothing stopping you in your (albeit limited) spare time

I'm not going to start a fight with you, but just so you know, your sarcasm will not be missed whatsoever.

I'm afraid you didn't read the entire post, because nothing in it warrants or validates any point you are trying to make in your post.

I regret to inform those who appreciated my presence on these forums.

- Apparently not you.

I will not be actively playing Trainz or participating in discussions on here.

- Which means I probably won't play it at all. Hell, I haven't at all since last summer, and here's why:

The motivation and creativity I once had is not there anymore.

- But...

Perhaps that is my own fault.

See? Nothing warrants that type of response from you, but perhaps that's because I don't spend my days lurking on the forums waiting for an opportunity to pounce on someone when they may ever so slightly be in the wrong...

Like you do.

I know why it happened, its just rediculous that when I do 2 DBR's that take 10 hours, it validates for another 2. This game is (removed language) near un-playable for me.
