OK, i got some time in to play.
Even though i only give you a few dollars to start. Money is outrageously easy on this map. (perhaps I'll kick the loan interest up a few notches.)
I would downgrade this to "easy". But.... If you look at my screen shots, I cant get the stuff moved fast enough! Everything is exploding on me! I am not where close to my goal, i Got 20 years left, i need to find some creative ways to move the goods.
These shot are of the Deko Beta on the Utah map beta. What you see is what You get, the scenery "accessories" will be in the map.
I am a bit tempted to make a few more items like US stile grain mill and Coal loading docks. don't hold Your breath.
There is still a bit of bare landscape i will fill in before release, I am still testing playability. getting the track laid on this map seems easy because i knew were i wanted to lay it when i made it. maybe you will have a harder time. although, most valleys and short cut are brown grass which sort of point out easy ways through.
My Coal Yard up in the mountain, I can't keep up. .. eer and yes, the tracks that go under the bridge go right off the map. Those would be UP's mainlines. I am sure if I did not make pointless tracks, I would not need the bridge. I guess I could just make a crossover, there is no traffic there.
A random shot of 2 coal trains passing.
Provo and the mouth to the Geneva Steel Mill.
The Rex Pit, Part of Iron Bull Mining.
A coal train snaking down the mountain side.
Iron Mountain just south of Cedar City Utah. There is a lot of ore here..... and on my platforms.
The farming region. I cant keep up... Not that I am honestly trying. It was easy money in the beginning. I could just as easily abandon it at this point.
The GSC factory. This is probably the only thing the is really out of place on this map, It should be IN Salt Lake City. It is one of those sacrifices you have to make for playability.
Salt Lake City
