    Default MSTS Bin and Activities

    I'm posting this in Bin and Activities:

    I've just about finished my 'train jumper' activity for the MLT Bridge line. Basically, the activity has a very short player path in Mechanicville yard. I assemble a string of cars, hijack an AI train by adding those cars to a train that is in waiting mode, take that train to Mohawk yard. I then cut off the power, couple it to a pair of road switchers. Those two switchers then assemble a train in Mohawk yard and head back to Mechanicville.

    I've uncovered two issues that make the activity a little less "enjoyable".

    1) Once I leave Mech'ville, every signal is a permissive red. The same applies to all of the signals on the return trip. It's a short distance and the scenery is good, but so much 15mph running gets a little tedious

    2) I cannot restart the saved activity once I've made my first 'jump' to the AI train. I get a "World initialization Failed" error.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on solving either of these problems?

    Thanks

    Rick

    I plan on building a short activity along the lines of your idea where you take an ai train instead of picking a loose consist. I bet MSTS still doesn't like some things Bin George has unlocked.

    I read somewhere that you can add the numbers to the AI train so car numbers appear in the F7 view but can't remember where I read that. I wonder if doing this procedure would fix the save issue as well.
