    Here's a 5-minute clip of a Scenario I was planning on completing across the two divisions, but after umpteen restarts I finally threw in the towel!

    No, not at all, Mike.
    I just became frustrated at trying to get a Standard scenario to work without popping up X or ! icons in the Builder mode.
    I'd get the player's path accepted but as soon as I started placing static consists it would pop up these messages saying that there was a clash with something.....yet there wasn't!

    So I just said the hell with it and went back to QD.

    Understood Bruce, it can be a pain. Particularly on a route with lengthy single track sections.

    The AI and signalling logic is not up to the job in DTG releases. Trainz actually does it better and more so if you take the time to use the pathing tool. Incorporated into the Enhanced Interlocking Towers.

    That's when the game, for me, becomes work.....and I left that behind in 2012.

    Okee dokes Bruce, i can't be arsed with it either.

    But it's far better than DTG's shonky AI & signalling.

    I'm persisting with the bloody thing.....need my head read.

    Have started again and have actually managed to create a couple of AI where the paths don't conflict with anything.

    LOL!!

    No, just a glutton for punishment, Mike.
    I just want to try and get traffic flowing through the entire merged route.
