Ok new topic..I hope it has not been talked about..;)

Since my hobby was packed for many years I needed a substitute for the hobby. So I bought a computer game..

My computer isn't that great...ah who am I kiddin...it's crap!:thumbsdown:
The game takes up so much memory and my computer cannot supply the demand:( But, it works and It helped keep me happy:cool:

Here are some screen shots of the game.
Some of the locos are from the US and EU.
The game is called Sid Meier's RailRoads! :ttiwwop: :p






There are more photos, just go to my gallery and have a peek:) The game has many more locos, a good selection from the earliest steamers to the TGA high speed train:thumbsup: The game also has mods, but they harsh crash the computer:mad: not to mention the graphics! But with a good computer, you could be up alllll night playing!!..I know, I have:D

My graphics card is low end..and it just barely works. Oh!! I forgot to mention it's an online game as well:eek: I can play people from all over the world, it's a very addicting game:D I have not heard of *puts flame suit on* game before...hmmm. I can't upgrade my graphics card because it's probaly built into the motherboard:( :eek:hwell:

*puts flame suit on*
;)

That is not an actual game... When you type online and surround a word or phrase with *'s, it is like you are doing that action... I said *puts flame suit on* as a reference to how big rigs are a train's biggest competetor and that some people may think it is a "sin" to be into trains and big rigs... It is basically a little joke :)

I too have had the need to play a train game simulation as a substitute, next best thing to modeling. I found Sid Meiers Railroad Tycoon II Gold was the way to go. Sure its older, 1998 or so and there has been much recent upgrades and versions -- but this game has decent graphics and takes up very little space. I have had many enjoyable hours playing. I also have played the original version back in 1990 but it is not compared to what is available today. Check it out if you have a chance. I wanted to get the Sid Meier's Railroads! but my graphix card won't handle it or rather lack of.

Microsoft Train Simulator is very Good.. and lots of (free) add-ons available for just about every road.. Locomotives, rolling stock, routes, scenery add-ons graphics are readily available. Realism is excellent. Lots & free add-ons available at www.train-sim.com.

I was addicted to an on line game called Air warrior III about 10 years back. If I am ever going to finish my layout, a train simulator is the last thing I need.
