Additional Files Required

  1. Xtracks 3.17 or higher

Tasks Required

  1. You must have all six default routes installed BEFORE running this installer. The routes just need to be present: they DO NOT need to be unstored if you use Trainstore, nor do you need to activate them if you use Route Riter's ON/OFF utility.
  2. You must have Xtracks 3.17 or higher installed.
  3. You must have Newroads 3.20 or higher installed.
  4. Run the installer by double-clicking on the EXE file you have saved to your hard disk.
  5. Allow the batch file to run to completion.
  6. The first time you run this route, there will be a short delay as MSTS "generates terrain buffers" - this is a one-off and subsequent use of this route will load normally.
  7. If you see white stripes alongside your track in the sim, you will need to move the quality slider further across to the right (Options | Display | Overall Display Quality.
