  1. #1

    Default Roseville Subdivision (donner pass) v0.1

    Is there aynone, who can finish this route?
    Roseville Subdivision Union Pacific (Southern Pacific) Railroad. V0.1 Contemporary. By Richard Dunn (donner.zip)

    I would be very interested to drive this. I Know there is Donner Pass from 3DTS, but i am interested into this one also.
    I hoping someone does. I am sorry but i don't have enough knowlege how to build routes.

    Try searching Donner2 in library as that’s a good improvement from the original.

    I looked at working with this route a couple years back. I wanted to add the original line and
    the snow sheds, but I found that whatever was used to create markers was a good 1/2
    mile off from either UsaPhotomaps or Google EArth (those 2 are pretty close), so I dropped
    the idea.

    Found the route (it is in 4 parts by the way for the original questioner) Be sure to get the .z01, .z02, .z03, and .zip files.
    My question is that it required something called modrentrack sounds. Surely that is typographical error, and I tried
    that, and modern--- but neither turns up anything in the library. Where does this file come from.

    The 3dts route is very nice, and well worth purchasing. However, it's a period piece (steam/diesel transition) and short (Truckee-Colfax).

    The Donner route in the f/l is more modern, and is the complete subdivision from the east side of Sparks to just west of Roseville (doesn't reach Sacramento). When Willy went through it to create v2, a lot of track problems got cleaned up, and the Reno "trench" was added. The route does have a few remaining track problems affecting special cases, several cases of "floating" track in Open Rails (at least the "buried" track in 0.1 is gone), signals that as in 0.1 have small pinpricks of color in Open Rails and are hard to read (use the track monitor), and the added buildings while giving a good feel for the line are mostly generic (and floating off the ground in OR). Oh yes, and the "Donner Lake Monolith" seen in v0.1 when using Open Rails is gone (happydance!). So it's an interpretation of the real route not a fully realistic model. Still, it does the job, and works far better than 0.1 did - the cleanup and detailing job must have been enormous.

    Oh yes, and you do need those "Modern Track" sounds - OR crashes the route without them, and MSTS simply crashes. As noted, they're in the f/l. Keep a copy around; I've run into one or two other ancient routes that need them.

    Very interesting. Yes i own Donner Pass from 3dts, but as you said, that thing is "period piece". So i came across this v.01.
    Version 2 is working very well, bu tthere is some kind of missing texture i would say.
    In Sparks there is big building and its colored blue as no texture (blank). But there is shape only. So i went to editor to find out what this is.
    Its called "NUGGET". I do have 3 files in route folder with that name. (nugget.thm, nugget.s and nugget.sd). They are all in Shapes folder.
    And this is where my knowlege of fixing this building ends. Is there anything i can do to fix it? Any idea would be welcome.

    Gammaray84,

    Get a copy of ShapeViewer which I believe is also in the library. If you attempt to view the shape
    there should be a list of textures in the pull-down that are required. You may be able to find
    them somewhere else (try the original v.1 route) but if not-----. If you find them just copy
    them into the textures folder of the new route and you should be okay.
