I'm trying my hand at activity creation and put together a 3 part set. I've run them all with no problems but they should still be considered BETA. Anyone who trys these let me know what you think (all feedback is welcome ) ; ) You can reach me here or my email is in the readme....oh and do read it as it contains info on the activities and rollingstock needed.

Shaa,

You forgot to put the consists in the consist folder. Could you do an update?

Dwayne,

Did it fault out when loading? I'm just asking because the only actual consists used were ones that Andre made. Everything else was put in as static objects so shouldn't need consists as long as you had required rollingstock. When I tested it I deleted all the consists I made and then installed with no errors. I'll go thru it again and see if I did miss something tho.

Approaching Tunnel - you can just feel that late summer's evening heat bouncing off those earth banks.

Jim,

Just completed your activities the other day. They are terriffic, difficult and challening, but a lot of fun! Keep this up and you will rank right up there with Skyrat and a couple of other excellent activity creators. I esp liked it that some of the cars being dropped off were not in sequence in the consist and pickups not always coupled together. The one suggestion I would add to the first activity, Seligman, is that you inform people that they need to take the loco up to the coaling pit to activate the AI train. All in all, these are excellent activities that really make you work and think. Thanks a lot and looking forward to more.

Dwayne

Hey Dwayne,

Sorry it took so long to get back to your post (was gone for a few days building a deck at a friends) Glad you liked the activities and thanks for the feedback. I looked at the services and found the error you pointed out about the traffic in Seligman Local activity. Somehow I screwed up the path before uploading it blush.gif . I uploaded a corrected version so it should work ok now (this is why we do beta's wink.gif )

Anyone who's interested in revised copy the link in first post will get the new version now.
