    When I joined I don't think computers had been invented yet. Pretty sure it was late last century Rob or Tony might remember since I'm pretty sure they were around.

    For me, ever since playing the 06 demo back in 2009, it's really brought me into the trainz community. I wish I knew about the game before the 06 demo, I would of been OBSESSED with it even more.

    One of those special places where things were better, people were younger, etc.

    Well said Martin, and to add to that those old days were places where all steam trains were spotlessly clean, always ran on time with no cacelations and everybody ran around wearing rose coloured glasses.

    However some of us of a certain generation can actually remember those days and therefore allow ourselves to quietly smile when others of a younger generation refer to "the old days".

    It's really quite amazing that Trainz is still going strong. Though the first release was late 2001 the forums opened up in I believe late 1998. Can't remember exactly when we started beta testing but probably in 2000. Not many software titles have such a long run without interruption. Sure is nice to see names I remember from over 10 years ago still being active around here.

    Hi Ceebee,

    Just to get off topic on this thread a bit, but that's where I think people underestimates trainz --- Sure, TANE has issues in the beginning, but what trainz version hasn't in the beginning. right? And it's sticking kicking, like us old timers roaming around these forums like ghosts! LOL

    Kind Regards
    Ish

    Still here, going back to TRS2004. Spent a lot of time at TPR working with John Keenan creator of the Clinchfield Route. Pencil42 (Curtis) wrote the script that helped me animate doors on some of my early rollingstock. Have gone from Gmax to 3dsmax and then took a break. Installed TANE last winter and have been learning Blender these last few months.

    I think 2006 ? was when the forums blew up and most everything was lost. A lot of people got 2006 join dates from that when they started the present forums. Maybe someone who was around more than me back then can remember for sure?

    I was around then, it was 2006 and it was chaotic. At the time, there was definitely a suspicion that the failure was deliberate as a way to douse the row that took over the forum. Many people considered it strange that there was no backup of the forum, the problem was said to be a drive failure

    My join date was originally 2001 and I had over 4000 posts. The real loss was all the technical data that was lost, many clever people who were active then never came back.

    Your right, I forgot all about that. Tried the TPR forum (my password doesn't work anymore) but was able to do a search and found some posts from me going back to March 2004.

    Wonder how many posts Drucifer would have had if he stayed on after the crash? He was closing in on 15,000 which was the highest post train avatar at the time. Called it Trainz Deity I think. I got to Commissioner before the reset.
