    those people need to communicate with Run8 with accurate proof that there is something off, as Jim has stated, the goal is to make it as accurate as possible.

John has always stated give him good numbers and he'll replicate it exactly.

    Also I am a former conductor with CSX and I can tell that Run 8 is the closest experience I have had.
    Been there, done that. I worked with John and gave him the info that he need that I gathered on my job as engineer. When he was done, it was as close to perfect as you could be, even the other engineers commented how good it was.

    It was another railroader that noticed the change and posted it for John in the forum. It was soon removed from the forum by a member of the team.

    I'm not a railroader by any means so I can comment. But I don't personally know anything out there that feels more realistic than Run8. The others are games in comparison. That's not a knock against other sims as every sim has its pros and cons for what a person wants.

    Thanks

    I appreciate the advice, all, thanks again. I think I'll give it a shot. If nothing else, I'd like to show the guys some support for not DRMing it! I'll take a gamble. Now it's just a question of when...hehe.

    FTR, my biggest issue with the sim itself is that it's not open, but I will follow Sean's advice look into content creation at some point in the future. I figure the worst that can happen is they say "no". If there's no AI (at least not now), meh, I'll live. As for running single-player and getting bored, all I can say is, when I get bored, I stop playing for maybe a year, play again for awhile, get bored, wait another year, play again, rinse and repeat. Most of my games and sims are 20-30 years old and I play them as much as I did as a kid!

    What makes you think that it isn't coming in the future?

    What the hell is "DRMing"?

    Sounds medical!
