Hi Sean, another good session, I know you were busy in the yard, sorry I missed some of your DS responses, they faded away before had a chance to respond, I did have a question about the texture / transition from SBD to WC, in single player I could drive through the elevated textures with no problem but,in multiplayer it stopped my train quickly! I hope the run8 guys will slove this in version 3. Also what does a Holster do? is he like a conductor? Anyways had a good time see you at the next one. Tim
The server name is anything you want. You probably already had one setup when you joined me in the past it can be anything that identifies what server your on for your refrence. As for the extra board same thing. If you like being in Hobart to start for example there might be an extra board there. You can also save new extra board locations as well. But there are plenty to give you a spot where you may start from in an MP session. If your in the wrong place you can always transport and fly.
Sean, doing some upgrades to my PC , and motherboard died!! might be 2wks before I receive a replacement, so i'll have to catch up with you in about 2wks! I have a less powerful pc I can use to follow your progress on youtube. Tim :(
Hi I saw your wed.4 RTS stream, learned a lot about ED, when I join your server it says that there is a "mismatch with host/server database, then connects me anyway! Is this a normal process? Also I had to signup for wed. session (twice), then delete one, the first time did not take, so I signed in again, that might have caused conflicting info, for me when you checked the signups. Sorry! See you Sunday! Tim:)
Hi Sean, I have been watching many of your videos as time permits over the last few months and found them very informative. I now have Run8 v.,2 and find myself spending many hours on it. I have looked at some of the other servers and am interested in joining RTS. Not as much noise and horsing around with you guys in session. Maybe doing locals and yardwork as well as main line running would be my cup of tea. I must have a couple thousand hours in MSTS so moving into Run8 has been easy (except for learning the keyboard). I will eventually get a Rail Driver but thought it would be best to go through the pain of learning the keboard commands first :) Thanks for your posts and I'll be looking at this site to figure out how to join.
One thing, I have not located any specs on internet connection. What do you think are the optimal up/down and latency levels for a good connection? My current connection is not the best right now.
I had some fun the other day. I built a 130 car loaded coal train with mid-train power and configured the HP/T to 3.0 and then ran it down Tehachapi sucessfully :) The train mass to near 15,100 tons and mainly keeping it between 15 and 18 mph with dynamic braking and AI in the mix.....lots of fun!!!
Todd we run 24 hours here just like the real world. I happen to enjoy the night despite it's real world challenges. BTW Todd as I've told everyone these wall posts can be seen by everyone just in case you were trying to send private messages to me
I tried playing Run8 under Linux back in v1 days, using Wine and Mono if I remember correctly. It ran, but the physics seemed to misbehave; I would drive for a while and then break a coupler for no apparent reason, even on nice easy flat ground. This happened in both singleplayer and as a multiplayer client. After switching to Windows, I’ve never broken a coupler since, despite playing on hogger mode all the time.
