    Open Rails Payware

    I've been looking around for more Open Rails payware to purchase however I'm struggling to find providers. I've already purchased and used all the routes TrainSimulations (SLI) has to offer. Who are some other providers I can still purchase from specifically for some US content? Also, if anyone knows some payware locos that have 3d cabs that would be appreciated as well.

        Honestly they're all worth purchasing from, especially the 3dtrains and NAVS items.

        Be careful with dekosoft though, I've heard from a few (from here and elsewhere) that they haven't revived passwords after paying for a product.

            I don't want to disillusion anyone, but except for the new Routes by TrainSimulations --- CN Ruel, Mullan Pass, and SP Shasta ( with their respective trainsets --- most using some form of OR physics ) .... everything else mentioned is MSTS payware that works in OR, most definitely not Open Rails Payware.

            NAVS payware rolling stock offerings definitely are OR payware, using advanced OR physics parameters, include files, etc.

              Very important distinction.

              Open Rails payware features a different version of the Global folder that does not mix well with MSTS routes. Most users should have 2 installations minimum, one for Open Rails payware built around the new file formats, and a legacy installation featuring MSTS-grade routes that use the older version of the Global folder.

              I wish helpfuls like Unoriginal would start framing the conversation this way. Before we end up with a bunch of new or returning users trying to mix the two and creating all kinds of texture display failures that needlessly consume debugging time.

              I'm not a fan of Open Rails code trying to placate or substitute for the basic segregation structure that users must come to grips with. We did that before, this texture substituting bit, and it didn't work out too well (the whole Scenic Starter route drama). Open Rails developers have no business babying the resistors so as to avoid having them learning the necessary structure. Because someday, some other developer will delete the 'helper apps' for a good cause and then the people that never learned the structure will be wandering around without knowing what to do.

              What is needed is a video version of Steam4Me tutorials on how to establish the structure on your hard drive, walking them through what structure needs to be established whether the person has MSTS disks or not. People need to spend time on this, rather than helping the 6,275th user who lost his ballast when he wrongly dumped some MSTS route into the Open Rails side.

                The grey ballast thing actually got fixed on the testing version now (thanks pschlik), so putting MSTS grade routes with trainsimulations ones shouldn't cause the track texture not loading anymore.

                  That was addressed in my third paragraph
