Runaway train
Today, during the maneuvers, the coal wagons decided to go for a ride ;)

Looks like my computer upgrade might come sooner than planed.

Your route's spectacular vistas and screenshots have teased me for so long. I'm going to have to wait a lot longer in impatience for your route to finally reach my end, due to computer faults and low performance.

In addition, I fail to have TS2010, but would it be worth it to purchase '10 for this route? I think I'll wait for TS2011/12 to come out.

I wish you one of the best New Years.

Cheers,
Joshua

Josh,

I run this route in TS2010 SP3 (see under my username for my most current Trainz version) and it runs absolutely amazing. Did have a little bit of jitter, but when you have iTunes, Photoshop, Opera, and 4 IM's running in the background and on a second monitor, yea you get that. :p

Here is my system:
CPU: Intel Core i7 980X (w/Cooler Master N-520 CPU cooler @ 3.33GHz)
MOBO: ASUS Rampage III
RAM: 12 GB (3 - 4GB Corsair Dominator)
GPU: 2 - ATi Radeon HD5870
PSU: Corsair Professional Series 1200 watt
Optical: 2 - LG BluRay Burners
Sound: Logitech Z5500
HDD: 3 - WD Cavair Black 1.5 TB
SSD: 1 - Curcial 64GB (OS)
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Case: Cooler Master HAF X
Monitor: 2 - 27in Samsung P2770 Full HDMI

Does anybody know what the dependencies amount to download wise? not like i care--my computer is the best i've ever had and my FCT makes the 100mb limit and ridiculously slow downloads irrelevant (I just downloaded 104mb in 15-20min :D) but i'm just curious. If it's like 200-300mb, i don't care, it's worth it.

December 31st, 2010, 11:37 PM
No clue you estimate is probably close, but I downloaded just everything on Dermmy's web page and it works great. Still a ton of missing/unknown dependencies for me. Still looks good so who cares. :cool: :p

When I was testing EK3 my copy of TS2010 only had my own content in it when I installed the route. I can't remember exactly how much there was off the DLS but I know it was around 130mb.

If the server is full....Is there another way to download stuff from your CMP???

Dermmy
January 2nd, 2011, 02:36 PM
Nah - the server is never full. That's a bit of a silly catch-all message for (mostly) log-in issues. Assuming you have a FCT log out of the forums and the DLS, then delete your log-in details from CM3. Give the server a few minutes to refresh and drop you out, then log back in manually re-entering your username and password. That pretty much always works for me.

On the other hand if you don't have a FCT and/or are using Win7, that's a whole other can of worms...

One thing that I try doing is to keep pressing start...eventually it actually works! lol!

I did that for a day and a half with no luck. Then I followed the advice Dermmy gave me and it worked on the first try.

Here it is. Clear everything in your CM left window, (hit the "clear" button.)
In CM, erase your ID and password and re-enter them.

Get out of 2010.

Clear your download cart, you might have something left in it from the last time you used it - from 2006, 2004 downloads?? It could be from years ago.

Leave Trainz and leave the Forum. The point here is that you want the download station and Auran to think that you gave up, committed suicide, and therefore will never be back.:'( A bit over dramatic perhaps, but I'm serious. Don't bother Auran or the DLS for at least 5 or 10 minutes.

Then re-try. Try it with just one item, rather than a whole sch*dt load, just to get it started.

I did all this and it worked the first time when I came back, and it's been fine since.

Give it a try.

Amazing nice route only pitty it has to be run in compat mode because of the trees.
Brittany if you can here me make some more trees similar to Trunda's and other fine chaps and this route will be the absolute nr 1 for 2010 to run.
Thanks Dermmy and other providing so much nice stuff to feel younger and younger every year.

@ FR - love it! I wish there was more up-to-date models in grey and yellow!


Just making the most of what we've got available to us. The GP30 for instance is a dated model, but still looks quite good - thanks for assist with directing hoborailcat to this as well.

Maybe the release of your masterpiece may encourage some more grey & yellow content?? Wait and see I guess.

I downloaded this L&N engine and it's perfect! Nicely weathered for a coal run on EK3. However, I personally don't like the "whine" of the older geep engines on the DLS. I usually swap the sound kiuds out. My favorite is one from an old Reading Alco <kuid:-1:42003001>

Try this one out instead of the one that comes with it. Nice deep, "throaty" roar - almost like a Harley, but not really.:confused: Sort of.

But keep up the great work and congrats again on a job well done!

Nice shots but have decided to delete the route, one I had been waiting for for a long time. If it is at all related to performance issues, check Dermmy's recommendations. You can chop the draw distance in half, and due to the mountainous terrain, you will still see no pop-up scenery.

I'm proud to say with alot of help from the threads and Dermmy's well-documented pages, I'm at 0 missing dependencies. Here's my first screenshot of your route Dermmy. It's an amazing piece of work you've accomplished! My hat's off to you.

Thanks guys :)

EK IV is started and will extend the route westwards towards Ravenna. Exactly how far this next installment will go is as yet undecided, there are plenty good places to stop along the way.

Fist screenshots are revisions of errors or omissions on EK3. Somebody commented on the lack of a fly ash loader at EK Power so the world's most cramped power plant now has an extra industry crammed in. It makes a nice spot to pose some of JR's new covered hoppers..


http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa187/Dermmy/East%20Kentucky/ek4_001.jpg

Another correction: The loadout at First Creek should have had a wye connection to the main, the missing western leg of the wye is now added (not that the location is obvious from the screenie, but I kinda liked it)...

I absolutely dead set love that sky and the associated lighting, but you are right, if you catch it at the wrong spot there is a very definite 'cross' where the tiling ain't all it could be. Love it none the less...

I have never actually loaded anything at DFP, mainly because I never got around to configuring any rolling stock to suit the product! Everything appears to be working as it should though. The industry is available here (http://checkrail.com/downloads/3party/LoadingTracks_Logs_4.2m.cdp). The associated products are on the DLS...

Thanks Bob. My 'grass' ground textures are almost always at least two deep with the 'top' coat very lightly applied. Stuff like steep rocky slopes are harder, scale and rotation need changed constantly and while trying to keep a small palette of textures they need to be mixed up a bit....

April 13th, 2011, 04:35 PM
I have already PMd Pofig with a 'Yes' but perhaps a word of explanation is in order to others who have asked to release modified versions of this and other routes of mine and have been denied...

I have a blanket 'No Variations' rule on all of my routes, and this will continue to be the case. But when somebody has made dozens of new assets simply to place on the route it's a bit hard to say 'No'. I also use Pofig's trees almost exclusively in other projects and the permission I have granted him is a simple 'Thankyou' for the huge amount of quality 3D content he has contributed to the community.

So to Pofig my thanks.

To pretty much everybody else: No, you can't....

Remember back when TS2010 was released Auran made speedtrees automatically replace a lot of Dave Drake's trees on imported routes?

Well I have just seen screencaps of the mess N3V have made in TS2012 by auto-replacing Trunda's trees with speedtrees. No attempt has been made to match the size, style or colour of the originals, just a random set of new trees hacked into any route using Trunda's vegetation.

I would urge anybody with TS2012 who wants to run EK3 to use Pofig's version of the route available from elsewhere in the forum and NOT import my original. His version is very close to what I had in mind, and his trees are about as good as 3D trees get.

The auto-replace thing has to all effects and purposes trashed the original version of the route...

I installed East Kentucky 3 v1.1,<kuid:203465:100011> into TS12 and the two sessions. I did one and a half days work on cleaning up the kuids using PEVs tools so that they are error free. The only missing assets are a couple of moving men.

When I start Endless coal all the assets are there and I can DCC the trains: but I get a script error and all the driver commands of the session are missing. Has anyone else come across this or is it just me?

DriverCommandRule : Thread Exception: ER_Exception, line 417, file drivercommandrule.gs (1)
DriverCommandRule : World.AddDriverCommand> not a DriverCommand asset: <kuid:131986:1002> (file world.gs) (1)

May 2nd, 2011, 03:29 PM
Hi Spruce

I don't have TS2012 yet so I am unable to check anything in person but there is another thread current in the TS2012 forum where a session has issues with the "Navigate To" and/or 'Navigate Via" commands in 12. Both commands are used extensively in the session.

Given the total mess N3V have made of the route with their mandatory retirement of Trunda's trees I'd be giving the route a miss on that platform anyway...

Andy :)

Spruce
May 3rd, 2011, 05:30 AM
This is a pity as the route looks good. I am able to set up my own commands. Would there be a list of them somewhere and I could input them by hand?

I read the error messages more closely and found that even though I had no missing assets indicated there were three driver commands still on the DLS. Derail train, CoupleTo VFacingTrackMark and Drive to TrackMark List. When I downloaded these the driver commands appeared in the session. There are still scrip errors in file arn_lib.gse, which I assume is encripted and drivercommandrule.gs.

Sofar so good

:cool: It's not a version thing, I have trains stopped at signals & junctions with Clovis type autopilot signal distance settings in the trainzoptions file...some trains want to enter an occupied block because they both selected the same track at each end junction to that block.

Yet I can't say that is the cause, just that it happens in 'o9/'10 combo.

Dermmy
May 4th, 2011, 12:18 AM
...even though I had no missing assets indicated there were three driver commands still on the DLS. ...

TS2010 doesn't pick up driver commands as session dependencies, therefore it won't go get 'em by itself nor will it show them as 'missing'. Kinda silly, but that's the way it is. I did include all the required driver commands though in a cdp you downloaded with the session, it is packed in the same 'rar' file :)

Can't help much with script errors, just not my thing. A post in the 'Scripting' forum is probably your best bet.

As to driver commands for the session posting your own is pretty easy: Empty coal trainz from the west portals go to either Jeff or Dent yards, empties from the East go to Hazard. Manifests and locals run portal to portal. IIRC the AI will keep all trains on the correct main line tracks except through Dent and Hazard Yards and past Comb's Tipple (west of Hazard) where they need 'Navigate Via TM' help. Once the AI gets the empties to the main line yards, it was up to the user to decide where to send them...

Andy :)

Spruce
May 4th, 2011, 12:47 PM
Thanks for the reply. I have been shifting between three versions of the sim and probably misplaced the cdp with the driver commands in it. Anyway all are installed now and assets fixed to the warning level in TS12. So you are to be congratulated as the route looks really well ( even given the speedtrees) and the viewing distance into the distant mountains is great.

Dermmy
May 5th, 2011, 06:01 AM
checkrail's next release (in conjunction with trainz.up) will be EK3-ST.

ST? SpeedTrees! Pofig has re-planted the entire route using his trees, including a whole heap of new content for the route. He has now passed the 'converted' route back to me for some more detail tweaking and additions. The new version of the route is identical to EK3 in respect to trackwork etc, but look for lots of other changes in addition to the new tree content.

The route is currently TS2010 SP3 but will possibly be moved to 12 if performance increase warrants excluding users of the earlier version.

When? No proposed date, but I think 'soon' is fair...

Here is the first screen cap from a test section on the new route...

Well I know in TS12, none of those CSX locos from USLW and WCT work, which makes the session "not work". I don't have 10 though, so can't say anything about that.

Those USLW engine are actually a little old and some of them show errors in 2009. They worked in 2009 when in Compatibility mode. Had to fix the errors to get them to work in Native mode.

I moved them to 12 after I fixed the errors and they work fine...

That might be why they are not working.

So you fixed the errors in 09 then transferred them? Hmm, I guess I could try that... I always ran in compatibility mode in 09 so didn't go about fixing the errors. And once imported to 12, they weren't fixable.

be nice if it was a installer where you didnt have to track down all the kuid's, i have ts12 and it had all kinds of missing assets and depend..

I tried everything(delete, reinstall, delete again) but I am not able to play Endless Coal or Jeff's Coal. Loco CSX GP40-2 YN is not visible on the track, neither in TS2010 or TS12. In the railyard, I can select the name, but don't see the image. In the surveyor, I can not select the loco, the name is in red. In the driver setup, the name is in black, next to the driver, but there are no GP40's on the track.
What can be the problem?

As pointed out the locos used in the sessions are 'old'. It is clearly stated at checkrail that the route is designed only for TS2010 SP3 Compatibility Mode and the session will only run in TS2010 SP3 Compatibility Mode.

The problems you are describing have three possible sources: (a) You are in TS2010 Native Mode; (b) You are in TS12; or (c) if you are in the correct Trainz version you are missing loco dependencies.

For (a) and (b) I can offer no support, for (c) all dependencies are listed (with links) at checkrail...

There is nothing to 'track down'. There are TWO comprehensive lists of non-DLS content for the route, one listed by source the other listed by kuid. Both list include links to either the page from where the content can be sourced or (where possible) hot links to the content itself.

There are similar linked lists for session content.

To downloaded the route and/or session(s) you had to scroll past the lists.

Exactly how easy do I need to make it....

Now that I have that out of my system I wouldn't bother with the route in TS12 anyway, N3V have obsoleted the trees originally used and afaik there is no simple fix. In 12 the route is not worth the trouble...

:cool: I'm so glad to see this post Nikos!

Your mischievous GP40-2's at first worked OK...then I started noticing a missing shadow warning...

Fixed the shadow thing & committed...missing numbers 3,4,5,6, illegal Icon warning...

Fixed, then "this item cannot be committed because it contains the wrong kuid."(?)

But they showed, except for CSX ex-Conrail GP40-2...It not only disappeared, it took the entire coal train out with it! In fact, I coupled a certain Chessie System GP30 and...get this...it disappeared also!

I first noted this because I had to wait for a clear & barely could hear it pass, then got a clear & looked in Mini-Map & a whole train had went by...:hehe:

I could see the locomotive referenced in the Edit Session/Edit Drivers(the first entry), but was missing from the find object tool...you were presented the train, could hear the sound, even see smoke, but no visible train.

You can imagine trying to deal with a train you can't see except in Mini-Map!

Anyway, I wanted to thank you for your work on these locomotives, they have a great interior & hornsounds & look great!

I think an update must have happened to the game behind the scenes.

This occurred using TS2009.

Absolutely no offense intended Nikos, I don't think the EK3 Sessions would have been the same without 4-axle GP40's!

I just have to state my opinion real quick... I have to say that you lose a lot of the beauty that's in the tundra tree's version (The original), the dark speed trees and the mostly 3D track take away from it, almost make it ugly from my stand point. I was driving through the local mountains not too long ago, and I can tell you the tree's sure didn't look like that.

My pointless $0.02

checkrail's next release (in conjunction with trainz.up) will be EK3-ST.

ST? SpeedTrees! Pofig has re-planted the entire route using his trees, including a whole heap of new content for the route. He has now passed the 'converted' route back to me for some more detail tweaking and additions. The new version of the route is identical to EK3 in respect to trackwork etc, but look for lots of other changes in addition to the new tree content.

The route is currently TS2010 SP3 but will possibly be moved to 12 if performance increase warrants excluding users of the earlier version.

When? No proposed date, but I think 'soon' is fair...


Andy :)

Don't want to bother you, but you might want to fix some of the tight curves.. make their radius constant, you know what I mean. I started doing this for all curves in the current version of the route and it changes it significantly.

Compatibility mode allows the game to run older content that would either not work or show up weirdly in Native mode.

It's in the options menu in the game itself, not the one you access from the launch screen.

In the game, select "Main menu", then "Options...". In the window that comes up, go to "Video Settings" (should open to that by default). There should be a check-box option about 2/3 down that says "Enable compatibility mode for older content:".
Make sure it has a check mark.

You will need to restart the game for the changes to take effect.

Yep - that was 'on the list'

Well I need to say it somewhere, but the East Kentucky project is pretty much dead.

Pofig's 'Replace Asset' speed-tree version WILL be released - soon - but after that I suspect the saga is over.

I simply cannot live with speed trees. I love the performance gains, but for me Trainz and Trainz route-building is a primarily visual experience and STs - even the best of them - just don't do it for me.

That leaves the EK project stuck in one version only - TS2010 SP3. I honestly wish I had never taken the thing out of 04, but there is too much done to go back.

Is it worth creating routes for one version/one service pack? I honestly don't know,

I am not spitting the dummy and walking away, I love this sim, but until i work out exactly where to go from here EK is done and dusted.

Please do not let this degenerate into yet another pro.anti ST debate. STs are here to stay. Nothing can be done about that.

If this thread does degenerate into such a debate I will request it locked, which would be a shame...

Hello Dermmy

I'm working on changes of the route ''DB four together'', which now run in TS10 native and i admit, that TS12 is very demanding, a lot of things i must repaired.
That's the reason why i asked you if Clovis3 will be made for TS12.

If i had the chance to make the decision on which route to work, i would say EK3.

I don't have the possibility to choose a mode in options. I have a Dutch version who seems to be different. I can only choose DirectX or OpenGL, resolution, bitdepth, full screen or not, screen (4:3, 16:10, auto, etc) and antialias.
Because I can choose the drivers, I could solve the problem by replacing the missing loco's in the drivers setup if I should know which consist is driven by which driver en what their starting point is.
I have the same problem in Jeff's Coal session.
I would appreciate it if someone gives me that info for both sessions.

Same here Dermmy. 2010 EK3 is it for me. Some other routes might come along without ST's that will be just as good, but none will be better than EK. Yours is the standard now, and EK should keep me happy for centuries.

Waiting now for Hudson River by Zorronov, and whatever else you might decide to do.

Thanks for your devotion and contribution to TRS.:Y: :clap:

Wrong menu! Enter Surveyor, then > Main Menu > Display Options > Enable Compatibility ModeWas already enabled. Problem not solved; loco's still not visible, name in red in the driver setup. In Surveyor, F7, I have the name of the loco's CSX GP40-2 Yn3 and the SD 38-2 L&N 4503v in red and black. So I can replace them if I should know the link between a driver and a loco and the starting point where to replace the loco's.

Thanks for your info.

Thanks guys - truly appreciate the comments! Went back to building EK4 in Comp Mode last night and enjoyed Trainz more than I have for about a month. Maybe building routes for one version is worth while!

@ Mavu: If you are in Compatibility Mode and the locos are no-show the only cause is missing dependencies. It could be loco dependencies or could possibly be missing driver commands. Anyway just replacing the 'start' locos won't help because the same locos are on Portal trainz which appear later. Please double-check in CM that the locos are not missing something and also double check that you downloaded installed and committed the driver commands cdp that was packed in the same download file as the session. If you over-wrote existing commands they need to be manually committed, check your 'Open For Edit' tab in CM...

This is edited version of Pofig (he did a pretty good job, thanks Pofig), I changed the tracks (I'm not yet convinced by tracks 3D), and level crossings on ATLS. BTW, it turned out that one of my tracks look like CSX tracks, pleasant surprise :)
The rest is your merit, a good map do not mess up :)
