Updated map again, version 3. Much longer railway, new towns, more details to the track and industry, new pictures.


NEW MAP:
For those who is interested, here is a link to a new map that I have made, with a different focus than this one have. Enjoy.
www.planetminecraft.com/project/rails-of-war-fjord-railway/



IMPORTIANT!
The map itself is not made by me. It was downloaded, and one part made by the skilled terraformer named TheMcVikings. I got permisson from him to use the map, and make a railway on it for the Rails of War mod. The other is made by CI3minou. All the credit for the terrain goes to them. I have made the railway, and every other "man made" structures like towns, cities, factories and so on.

Hello there. As the railwayenthuciast that I am, I must say that I got realy pleaced when I found the Rails of War mod over a year ago. I have had alot of fun with it, making all kinds of railways. Even so the mod is far from finished, and still lacks a few things, it is one of the best mods I have ever played. I have always loved the railways here in my homecountry Norway, even if therailways are old and maybee not so functional anymore. But they have been built in such a magnificent way, witch just looks incredible. It turns and bends arround every hill and mountain. Crowls alongside narrow fjords, and down the steep mountains. So this is what I wanted to recreate in this map. I feel that I got some of the "norwegian feel" to the railway, wich is the reason that I used this terrain by TheMcVikings.

I have used the mod for a while, but rearly found a downloadable map for it. So I desided that I might aswell share mine. I bet that most of you who reads this is the other fans off the mod, and already knows whats its about. If not, then I recomend to check it out.

There might be some problems with the map though. If you use Don's branch of the mod, some problems might occur. I have not yet made a version of the map using that mod. You might have to place down the rails yourself if they are bugged.

WARNING: In the new version I have added a whole new area with snow. This was simply just put in there with MCEdit. Therefore it will look absolutely ridiculous if you fly over the area. But sins this is a railway map, and you are suposed to go by train and on the rails, it is no problem. I have made it look OK around the rails, so you will not see anything wrong around the rails. But if you starts to fly around on the map, thing will look silly where the terrain meets.

Have fun with it! And don't use any content of the map without permission. Thank you.

And a map that shows almost the entire line. Some of it is missinf though, with means that the railway is even longer.

Things along the map:
1: Paper Mill. 2: Town with fishing facilities. 3: Industri-area. 4: Town with (eventually) a small harbour. 5: Lumber yard. 6: Larger town/city. 7: Trainstation on the plateau. 8: City with harbour. 9: (Off the main line/sidetrack) hydropowerplant (and it will have a factory of some sort later on).

VERSION 3, THE NEWEST UPDATE:

In this update, the rails extend even further, across a large bridge, onto a whole new island. New towns and cities, aswell as industries are located here, and can be traveled to.

I am not quite sure anymore which version it is. Right now I am on 1.12, with the new version of RoW. That one does sadly not have standard gauge, which is on this map, but only narrog gauge. But the RoW version is the latest 1.7.10 version, proberbly the same with custom NPC.

I do like this railway mod better than Immersive Railroading. Rails of War have a style that fits this game better in my opinion. If I wanted something to look realistic, then I play another game. Rails of War makes fantastic models, that fits the Minecraft universe. And not to mention the textures. The biggest problem with IR after my taste is the flat and little detailed textures. It does not help to have good models, if you do not put the same amount of work and detail into the texturing.

You only need the rails of war, but some objects and npcs from Custom NPC have been used. The mod is not required though, those objects used is just decorative, and the world will work properly without it. So it will work fine with just RoW. Remember that when usind a newer version of RoW, the tracks have to be updated to that version usind the red track-updater wand that follows in the mod.

For some reason, whenever I start the map, the tracks don't register properly. I mean, I can see them, but I can't put down any of the engines or rolling stock

I apologize for late answer. When a new version of the rails of war comes out, the tracks ofthen hawe to be updated to work, becouse of coding differences, since the map is build with an older version. That is why the rails are visible, but not usable. The red wand that you can find in the inventory of the updates the tracks. So what you have to do is to click the red wand on rails around the map. I can't remember the radius it covers, but you have to travel around the whole map clicking on the rails. This only have to be done once, and when its done the rails will work properly, and can be used.

You just downloads it, and puts the file in your Saves folder in .minecraft. And ofcourse make sure to have the mod Rails of War installed.

I am sorry, but I am not familiar with the problem. I do not know what causes it, becouse it works fine on my computer. Do you use original RoW or Don's branch? The map was made with the original, so I am not sure how well it works with Don's branch.

To ride the trains, you have to fill them up with coal, and then press R for forward, and F for backwards/braking. More information can be found on the original post for the mod, so I recomend you to do some reasurce there (not posting simple questions, but reeding the post and the last comments). Hope this helps.

Better late then newer, I supose. But I am not familiar with your problem, I am afraid. Do you have the newest version of the mod? And do you use original RoW, or Don's branch? The map is made with the original, so I am not sure how it works with Don's branch. I figured out that all rails have to be replaced if you use Don's, atleast I had to do that when I tried it out. But other then that, I do not know.

Awesome map! It really seems like an actual railway (especially with the detail of the mod, as well as the structures in the map). This is also a good source of inspiration fo my own map (which currently is only a straight railway with no stations and 3 switches that would eventually lead to different destinations). So far I have been building everything by hand, and I should probably use something like MCEdit :).

EDIT: Personally I would suggesting installing redstone torches every now and then in the tunnel (so people don't get totally disoriented) :) .

Thank you for your kind words, even so I am realy late to respond. I have been without my computer for a long, long time. I want to keep the tunnels without light, as there is not light in the railwaytunnels. (Atleast not on the railways here where I live. Might be different other places). But the tunnels was far from done. They were just square holes. If I start working on that map again, the tunnels will be bether, and maybee easier to not get lost. But I have an other map I work on right now.

If your problem is that you are using a mac, then there is programs you can use to open rar files. Apple have their own.

A tutorial? There is not much tips I can share that Naiten have not already wrote in his usage guide. The only tip I can come up with is to use McEdit to help you place the turns. Just make a railbed for the turns on a superflat world, and copy it in MCEdit. Then you can just paste it where ever you want and need it in your world. Just remember to plan ahead, so you don't encounter problems with conecting the rails later on.

witch version of the mod did you use?, because if you are using the indev version that's why you can't drive the trains. And in the latest "stable" version there aren't any angled rails.

Yes, I supose that it is the indev version that have a problem. But the wierd thing is that I am able to drive at some maps, while I am not able to drive on other maps. I supose that is a problem with the mod, and it will be fixed later on.

You only need Rails of War

http://www.minecraftforum.net/forums/mapping-and-modding/minecraft-mods/wip-mods/1443999-rails-of-war-anniversary-update

You might get a message that you are missing some mods becouse I used those, but there is no change at the world if you have them or not.
