MOD VERSIONS: 1.7.10
REQUIRED MODS: TRAINCRAFT, TRAINS-IN-MOTION
RECOMMENDED MODS: OPTIFINE


NOTE: THIS MAP WAS ORIGINALLY CREATED BY EMPIRE RAIL IN 2014, I OVERHAULED IT FOR THE NEW TRAINS-IN-MOTION 3D RAILS.


Hey, I'm back. Just because it's Christmas doesn't mean I can release a spring seasoned style map right? So I decided after the new style of rails were released in one of the updates for TiM (Trains-In-Motion), to finally attempt to redo Empire Rail's old Traincraft map that was released way back in 2014. Remaking his map with the current Traincraft 4.20 style rails would have been almost impossible and require too much effort to redo, Empire Rail designed this map with a lot of "unique" railroad track layouts, however, the new TiM rails are able to easily replace the old drab 2D rails on this map. While a beautiful map, it had a lot of terrain bugs and quirks that looked odd when you got a close look, this new version not only replaces the old style of rail like that of my previous map, it also fixes a lot of the graphical issues that plagued the old map that could've been an eyesore to some. I was even able to give the map a season change, the map is no longer a cold white winter, but a bright spring, filled with flora, grass, and newly thawed lakes surrounding the areas.


Preferred the old winter style but still want the new 3D TiM tracks? You can download it here. I made two versions for people to download :)

Final Note:
While the map did get a makeover, the new 3D rails are definitely more performance-intensive compared to the flat 2d rails. Optifine is recommended and even with it installed you will absolutely experience FPS drops in areas with a good amount of tracks placed such as railyards, even if you have a mid-range to expensive desktop. You may notice a difference in the amount of track placed down compared to the older version, this was done specifically to minimize the performance impact the new rails had, while it doesn't look as cool, had I kept the number of rails placed the same as the original, frames could drop to the double digits for most users. If you still experience heavy FPS drops in certain areas, feel free to remove certain parts of the track you don't need.



FAQ



Q: Can you add ________ or remake ___________?
A: Sorry, probably not, I intended this to be my final map and I really don't have the energy to keep making Traincraft maps, plus I can't really find any more old traincraft maps worth overhauling.




Q: Other than the seasonal difference, are there any other differences between the two maps up for download?

A: Yeah, the winter version while still having the new 3D rails and got somewhat of a makeover in terms of landscaping, still more closely resembles the original compared to the spring version which is intentional. For anyone that prefers a winter setting or wants to take a nostalgia run on the new rails will be able to do so. The spring map (which is the new main version) has gotten a more extensive overhaul and has more content and changes. You'll notice it takes a lot of inspiration from my old traincraft maps. Both routes are practically the same, other than a few certain sections that certainly have a new look to them on the spring route.





Q: Will you improve it in any way after release like how you did your other traincraft map?

A: Nah, the version you see here is the final version of the map I've worked on, unless someone finds a major issue, this map probably won't get updated at all..


Q: Can you add a map?
A: Dude the route is practically a straight line just follow the tracks.
