I tried a map of yours with pak.ngb in Extended a couple of months ago, and then it worked.

Fam, I think the first thing to check if it does not work:
Open config\simuconf.tab and change the value singleuser_install= to the opposite number of what it is (if it's a zero now, change it to one. Or if it's a one now, change it to zero). Whenever the game doesn't load properly for me, it's because that value has been changed (I use the one value, but James has the zero value on github), which it occasionally do when updating.

But I might be wrong and the pakset really isn't working in extended, I will test when I get home in a couple of days.

If you can't get it to work, then resort to using a legacy Experimental setup.

I actually realized, really its the trains which I renamed which were renamed using Microsoft Word which crash the pakset. Link to the pakset which crashes: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bzy63vjRdV2_RUxjN3c3c2Q0cXc. Also, do you use Word to rename the trains or Notepad? (Also, all the trains (excluding the Class 172 Chiltern) needs to be updated to allow overcrowded like on the other trains.

The trains you've put are not Carl's they're made by me. They dont support overcrowding as I dont know how to do it.

Yes and the Chiltern Class 172 was made by Carl. Also, where do you put that line in? Also can you fix them for me please? :)

To check - are you compiling this with the Experimental/Extended version of Makeobj?

I think that British Trains for Pak 64 would be a more natural home for most of this discussion.

I agree - now, moving on to the GB map, and what has been progressing so far.

(this post is related to removed off-topic posts)

Fam, you -- probably -- aren't aware of a golden rule in every forum on the Internet: If someone opens a thread to discuss "X", then "X" must be discussed. Otherwise, it will be considered off-topic and, if persisting, spam.

I've removed the off-topic posts. Please don't derail topics.

Carl, just a quick question, how did you build the Channel Tunnel for the Eurostar trains, because I am trying to more or less the same thing and it wont work, can you give me some tips please?

Once you have a tunnel entrance, you have to lower the tunnel further in order to take it below the sea. Do this by using the 'lower land' tool on the end of the tunnel.

Carl, (when you have the time and the patience to) can we talk about the signalling please in another thread when you have time because I am really interested in finding out if the signalling will be updated to work in Simutrans Extended.

From what little I have read about the Extended signalling, it sounds like a pretty daunting task - and a lot of work for comparatively little benefit. I doubt I'll be doing it any time soon, I'm afraid.

The most recent dropbox link should work:

Dropbox has recently changed its link formats, so earlier links will no longer work.

Not too much to add at the moment. I've not done very much since the last update. Working up the East Suffolk Line - will re-upload when that's finished. The next couple of months should give me a little more time. Will be nice to get an update on here though, because the last one is buried behind a lot of posts.
