View Full Version : UMR update

Well, as a few have been asking about the progress of the ULTRAMEGAROUTE, here goes!

Because of the size - over 30 mb, I could not submit it in the normal way to the dls, so Alan Yeomans has graciously helped me out, by getting me to send him the disc. I have sent it (regular mail:eek: ) but have since noticed a few errors that needed to be corrected for me to be satisfied. So I have asked Alan not to upload the routes yet, as I will be re-sending the fixed version over the next week or two. I've decided to extensively test it, to try to get every bug out of it. Progress is going quite well.

Just a few stats:

-merge of GHOO and G&W
-improved and repaired scenery and texturing
-mainline end to end is over 240kms (150 miles)
-over 200 interactive industries
-20 passenger stations
-winter version also available

As Auran will be on a well deserved break over the holidays, the route will probably not be available until sometime in January, depending on whether or not Canada Post loses the disc between my house and Australia!

Thanks for your patience,

Just a shot I liked - taken while testing it.


Testing is going well - found a few things to fix, but not as much as I thought I would.

Hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday!
