|shenley||:||Thanks for the update, Larry. Just spoke to Norm and he sounded in good spirits. He said life in the retirement village was very good. Like you said, he misses all the great RBR days (we all do). I've now got the phone number to his room so it will be easier for me to ring him in the future. He said he had to go because Bingo was on in a few minutes.|
|Jenolan||:||Norm said he is having a lot of problems with his sight, miss all of the old crew RBR was really something grand when it was rocking|
|shenley||:||Thanks, Larry. I was wondering how Norm was getting on in the aged-care facility. I will give him a phone call soon. He said it might be difficult getting through to him now. Not surprised he has retired from RBR scenarios. Pleased he is still OK. Regards, Peter|
|Jenolan||:||Heard from Norm, no more RBR... I am still pondering paying (again) for the latest Trainz and writing Activities using the terrible rule based sessions|
|shenley||:||Nice to hear your updates, Larry. Hope the move hasn't been too much of a problem. Regards, Peter|
|Jenolan||:||Bought a Ryobi lawn mower (battery 18v) to do our tiny lawn, and a transfer pump to use the bath water on the garden|
|Jenolan||:||After more than a month of missing the farm, the worst thing drinking water, miss our clean fresh rain water tanks every day. And the morning kookaburras, maggies, even the wombat|
|Jenolan||:||Weather for West Bathurst (our Endolin) is now active|
|Jenolan||:||We have named our new house Endolin ... see if you can work out the reference. Disney movie, computer based, debug mode on.|
Norm has just sent me a message about moving into a retirement village and that LOC56 which will be available when tested by Puffing Billy will probably be the last of the RBR scenarios. Thanks for keeping RBR alive for so long Norm, please don't just disappear.
So Trainz/RBR is officially over ... it was fun back in the day, be good!
Well another iteration of Trainz, to download you need 30 gigabytes of download capability (on SkyMuster sure) and to have access to the content it is US$15 a month.Sorry not me, I wasted money buying a WinDoze laptop for T:ANE to try and build an Activity system as the MacOS version doesn't have TrainzUtil to build stuff and it was just not fun.
So officially, well can't be no offishyal RBR is long dead, I will have nothing further at all to do with Trainz. Norm was talking about another TRS2004 Activity and I will make that available but simply it is all just too much fluff now with no real intent for driving. It is not a simulator it is just a glorified graphics mash.
Hope everyone is well, be good!
Currently on the pot is JATZ, the new Activities will only be for T:ANE SP2, a sampler is being worked on slowly using Highland Valley the process is likely to be pretty tedious as I am trying to use as much of the built-in rule processing as possible which makes it wicked hard.
Zec has mentioned that he has almost a working T:ANE version of the old RBR route, now that's interesting!
