"Iron Horse" - A modular train set based slightly in reality

Post by DanMacK » 08 Sep 2013 21:53

Now brewing "Project Iron Horse" Andythenorth and myself have been bantering some ideas around for awhile, and thus, this project was born.

Still early days yet, but the wheels are turning on this new set, and I will say that it will be similar to FIRS and FISH in concept in that it'll be easily expandable should the opportunity arise.

Iron Horse is designed as a series of small but very playable sets designed to work with FIRS and other industry sets. The idea was to capture the simplicity of the original "TTD Feel" while adding some depth. The set's designed to be expandable, and various climate-specific rosters are in various stages. The Alpha is currently available on BANANAS and there are some tweaks still needed (offsets mainly), but it's playable at this stage and ready to be enjoyed!

The current roster is "British" and is based on UK prototypes and concept locos. More will be coming in future months, so as always, stay tuned!

I really hope it is a building set since we have enough vehicle and industry sets already. But I'm guessing the 'I' is for industry so it might be another industry set.

I guess this is the rumored new ship set. Hope it's true, else I'm losing some steam at my island games :)

[rumours]

Since I know Dan for some time now, I bet it´ll be a small steamer set. Take a look on his screenshots, or read back in "guess the train". :cool:

W/r to Andy, he didn´t release a train set, so he should be tempted to do so.

qed :cool:

IH has at least one horse in it. So could it be...
  • Ships?
  • Trains?
  • Road Vehicles?
  • Planes? (free clue...it's not planes)
  • Industries? (Stud farm? Ranch? Glue Factory?)
  • Houses? (Stables?)
  • Objects? (Fields?)
