    In very early betas of ORTS (before 1.0), slack was explicitly modeled, and was reported in the F5 HUD. That vanished at 1.0 and later. Not sure if it was modeled correctly, but you could see it in...

    Another thought: I've never been able to get MSTS to actually *run* in a virtual machine, but it does *install*. So if you have, say, a copy of Win98/SE or ME or XP around, you might want to install...

    Sorry for being missing for a while. Yes, I recommend doing the library search, because it yields not only the 2004 package but some more recent, updated packages. You don't have to be a paid member...

    For future reference: don't even try to run MS Train Sim (MSTS) right after you install it from CD or ISO. It has bugs, and the copy protection requires a physical disk in a real optical drive. You...

    I wonder; there may be some examples of tricking MSTS into accepting loops. The old Red Arrow Lines trolley route has loops at the end of a lot of lines that work in both ORTS and MSTS. Might be...
