Electro Island 2.0. and up


I have decided to start a blog about my layout that I'm building since 2011. I was posting about this in the Japan screenshots thread but Electro Island v.2.0. is so much more than those Japanese lines. Although they play a very large role.

This blog will serve as a progress diary, screenshot and instruction section. I have chosen for a blog instead of a screenshots thread so that I can work in my own tempo with posting the information and do not have to keep a screenshot thread in the air in times of less activity. Also I have much to tell about this layout so too much text would disturb the nice flow of a screenshots thread. But I promise to illustrate my stories.

So Electro Island went up at the download station on the 8th of march and was available on 9 march 2015.

First I republish the intro post so that you can see the promo pic, the feature list and the related Items with KUIDS. So after reading that info you see the general features of this route.

Electro Island Items:

I uploaded the map and 4 sessions to start with.

- Now including my supersession with about 40 ai trains and 7/8 portals active. However a warning that this session does not work right out of the box I will have to write instructions for the complete ai session because it uses many kemei trains with the wrong sound. I will provide instructions on how to replace the sound of the trains with the new JR E321 Engine Sound (TS12 Optimized) for each and every train in the soon to be opened Electro Island v2.0. screenshots and instructions thread. Otherwise you hear the horrible screeching sound of the the old jrE321 Engine sounds that where not optimized for TS12.

- For enjoying only Shinkansen /Japanese (ng +shinkansen network active) and TGV I have provided separate sessions.

- As you can see I uploaded station announcements for the 4 largest Shinkansen stations.
