    I too would like to know what files are required for an activity to work properly.

    At a minimum you need to provide the activity and services files, and if you have AI traffic, the traffic file. If the activity uses a path or consist not included in the route, then paths and consists too. I may be forgetting something. The MSTS activity editor has a "package activity" option that will export the needed files into a single file. I think there are some activity tutorials in the file library that cover this along with alternatives.

    Ged Saunders ( slipperman ) has an excellent utility for checking activities and for packaging everything the activity needs to run in a zip file. You should check you activity, correcting all errors and mistakes, then finally upload the zip file from MSTS ActManager.

    This is the utility zip file in the library ( works for both OR & MSTS ) >>> msts_actman.zip

    You should provide a list of equipment ( locos and wags ) and where they can be found...names of "zip" is good.
