Is Horse

There are too many trains in this game. So we made that better by adding some more.
Made mostly by andythenorth and DanMacK, standing on the shoulders of giants.

"Whoa Runaway horses...Racing through the darkness....Runaway Horses." - Belinda Carlisle

Updates to 2.0.0 isn't it :)

Iron Horse 2.0.0

2 years in the making, Iron Horse 2 is an end-to-end rework of Iron Horse.

Dive in and play.

See Also...

Some trains won't be available if you don't have the right railtypes.
Termite track grf is designed specifically for Iron Horse, and gives you the railtypes you need, plus new depot graphics.
Get Termite on Bananas.

BAD FEATURES to know about

- reefer cars and edibles tank cars have a cargo decay rate bonus.
- Double Juice loco has more power on electrified rails.
- cabeese do nothing, just eye candy.
- tank engines have randomised forward / reversed graphics.
- wagons are randomised 1st / 2nd company colour. If you don't like the effect, set 2nd company colour same as first.
- Metro and Narrow Gauge vehicles show up if you have an appropriate track set (Termite is recommended).
- Cargo Sprinter loco hides intermediate cabs if you add them consecutively to a train.
- there's a parameter for capacity (bigger / correct / smaller).

There's nothing else much fancy.

Bug Report: No locomotives are shown when selecting a filter for "none" cargo, but when "passengers" are chosen, all locomotives are shown, even though their capacity is reported as "N/A". Is that by design?

There are currently just 6 bugs or issues to fix before 1.0.0.

So can you find any more? :twisted:

thaaan: is it intended that the waggon color in the buymenu/shed-menu (i mean the dialoque if a train is inside the depot. how is this called?) are different from this ones seen on the track? and that the liveries of the combined mail/passenger waggons seems also to be random? :twisted:
