      I agree! I a STILL using the MSTS Activity Editor! The reason is,as you say,it is impossible to set up PATHS. Using the OR Path Editor is annoying,as you have glitches that prevent you from completing it. You usually have to "Join Path Here" and that creates other problems. The glitch for establishing your AI Traffic still has not been fixed and I much prefer the old "Graphic" method of placing my static consists on Yard or Siding trackage. I can knock out a quality Activity on MSTS in about 2 hours,where with TSRE,it takes me that long just to make a mess! Having vented,I do feel that I need to master TSRE,as The Open Rails only content cannot be created any other way. I guess I just need to get out of my comfort zone and LEARN the thing! Brian


        Are the activity files plain text when they're complete?


          Clearly there is a learning curve problem with the new product.

              I think so Geepster,at least in my case. I did create a decent Activity for PRR using TSRE,but it took a lot longer and I had to compensate for the problems outlined. As I said,I fell back to MSTS Activity Editor because,for me,there were no problems. Obviously,I cannot do that to create anything for Shasta,Ruell or Mullen. I also think that there are too many bells and whistles in TSRE that makes it overly complicated for the casual creator. Great for people who are into computers,but for people like myself,who just view computers as a tool,it is a detriment. Brian

                If you like what you see here at, be it the discussions and knowledge in the forums, items saved in our library or the ongoing development of our TSRE Fork, I hope you'll consider a paid membership to help support keeping the site operating.... Thanks!
