Glasgow Carlisle V4 Acts

Post by NiallGray »

Ready for release with the route, I have been uploading some acts over the last few days, some new, some old.

I'll use this thread to highlight the acts as and when I upload them. If anyone else uploads acts for the route, they will be mentioned here too.

Especially for V4, six simple passenger acts set in the modern day to introduce you to the new extension. Driving traction are 156, 318, 320 and 334.


I have also began re-uploading older acts from V2 & V3 so they are able to work on the new version. (Obviously, I can only re-work and re-upload my own acts.)

Very first act I did, it was uploaded first for V2, V3 and now V4. It's now traditional!

A little run around the Cathcart Circle. It is light on AI so ideal for those with lower spec computers

Uploaded three more re-worked V3 acts this afternoon to keep people going.

NG14 Gourock to Glasgow Central.
Uploaded this one because the Gourock line had a number of changes including new stations at Gourock and Greenock Central, along with extensive scenery re-working at Port Glasgow and the Paisley area, as well as other points along the line.

NG16 Motherwell to Glasgow Central
A short act, but a real one I traveled on when the Argyle line was shut and services were diverted to Glasgow Central high level one Sunday evening. I hated the act because in V3 it was too dark at 9pm. In the middle of summer there's still a little daylight left but the re-worked environment files mean I'm finally happy with how this one looks.

A frustrating HST run from Glasgow Central as far as Carstairs.

I think the fact that no-one wrote any for V3, kind of answers that question. A lot less people use MSTS these days, so the odds are even lower now.

It is a shame in a way as even in recent years there's been plenty of steam engine visits to Glasgow Central, including one by 6201, which I only mention as I saw a post in the rolling stock forum.

I hope someone proves me wrong and does a steam act, but I won't hold my breath.

Hi Niall,
I thought I would try to create an activity with my new route (Glasgow Carlisle V4).
Unfortunately I have met with some problems saving changes in MSTS Activity Editor.

For some strange reason I have been unable to save changes in an activity.
For instance, my activity involved driving to Wemyss Bay where there should of been some static consists.
When I eventually got there, there was nothing (no consists I had placed)

I went back into Activity Editor & no, there were none there on the map.
So.. I tried to re-place the consists & save the changes which I did.

I went back to the activity & again, there were none there!

Any idea's Niall?

Thanks...

Stef :-?

p.s - I even tried to save the activity as a new name in Windows & that didn't work either. Odd.

Might be a Registry issue.

Have a read up on those but also search the forums. There's plenty of similar threads on here. Chances are someone has had the same problem before.

Hi Stef,
Where is your MSTS installed?
If it's in C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86) that could be the reason. Windows doesn't allow writing into those folders, instead it stores the amended files in the C:\Users\[your user name] folder.

Cheers,

Hi,
I think this issue may of been my own doing.

I still had V3 installed :oops:

I copy/ pasted it somewhere away from MSTS & it seems to be saving fine!

I will continue to create the activity successfully I hope.

Thanks..

Glad it's sorted.

Hi Niall,
any idea why there are 3 lines adjacent to Carlisle Platform 1 that are not included in the Activity map?
I was going to add a few stabled loco's onto the road beside the wall as they used to in real life but am unable to due to them not being there.
