Just an FYI, the two other games in the trilogy are more like standalone expansion packs than true sequels.It doesn't make them bad, but don't expect too much to be different from game to game, other than a few new units and concepts in each.If you begin exploring Trainz as a building tool, crafting or modifying a route, or venture boldly forth onto the DLS and acquire one of the 2500 routes uploaded in the last decade— you will indubitably end up facing the learning curve of 'fixing assets'.If you are going to make headway fixing assets, you will need to understand where to look things up. After getting more than my part of entertainment through various Let's Read D&D Monster Books, notably by Leonaru, I have decided to participate in this great effort by delving, monster by monster, inside a book old by more than a decade : the Monster Manual for D&D3.5.

The main unique points about the game (which may or may not have been used to death since) are that you assemble all of your units through a branching research tree (you research various chassis, weapons, defenses, and other gizmos, and then put together blueprints that go into your unit construction menu), each faction has a completely different look and feel from one another, and each plays differently from one another (in an SC sort of way, I suppose, but to a lesser note).I am running Windows 7 so I set everything to run under administrator as suggested in one of the threads.
