  1. So you meant the cities in Uzbekistan, right? Because the cities in Kazakhstan itself are pretty far apart. The rivers are good to me, but I will have another look at it. I'll delete some cities in Uzbekistan. Now with Russia, I deliberately didn't add any cities there because I find that unrealistic. BUT I've got a really, really good idea. What if I add the rails in Russia, China and Uzbekistan, but I will leave Kazakhstan blank? That's good and realistic for the player. The player can lay track in Kazakhstan and lay them to the border of those countries, to join the rails that I already laid there, so the player can transport certain cargoes from another country. The player has to pay a lot of money to run trains in that country, but is required to reach some goals in the game. If that's a good idea, I will start editing the map right away.
  2. Lots of good ideas there. The hotel, tavern and restaurant should be disabled. There also has to be a minimum speed limit to make everything more difficult, and there are no rewards given for that. I think it's a good idea to make the scenario about making and maintaining a high-quality passenger transport ''system''. Like messages about that you can choose: - to afford new passenger wagons which will increase the amount of passenger revenue by let's say 5%, but will also increase maintenance costs by 10% OR - to not afford new passenger wagons which will decrease the average speed of all trains (or something similar) We could also do that the players rail company can donate money to a certain locomotive producer, like General Electric or Siemens for let's say 2,000K. The player will receive a message that says they will get a new modern locomotive in the next 2 years as a thank you for the donation. Once those 2 years are over, the player will get the Brenner E412 or a similar modern and fast locomotive :) I personally believe this is interesting to make a scenario of. Once again, if you have your own ideas, please let me/us know. And for Gwizz, I'm sorry to hear you're sick, too. I hope you and your wife get better soon :) Bas
  3. Sorry for the late reply. I don't think the scenario should start with track already being built. Although in real-life all tracks have been placed at around 1880 to 1920, it's more fun for the player to lay the track themselves, because it's an enormous country. The following engines would fit perfectly in the scenario! F3 (A&B) GP7 VL80T of course FP45 Class 6E E60CP Class 132 Brenner E412 I want the scenario to be mainly focusing on passenger transport. But please, go ahead and throw some ideas from yourself, you are the one who is working on the scenario, right? I have also edited the map slightly, I indeed totally forgot to work out the rivers completely. Tell me if you want more information, or if you have any suggestions. Bas Kazakhstan.zip
  4. Little has changed for the railways in Kazakhstan since it's independence, except for new locomotives and electrification. But from what I've read is that the trade to and from Russia is since 1991 declining, but the trade to China is growing rapidly. So that may have an effect on the railroading industry. You could do that as a challenge. I think a good goal is to transport from 1991 to 2011 or 2014 an x number of passengers from Almaty to Astana, Almaty to Atyrau, Atyrau to Aktau AND Astana to Atyrau for bronze, for silver transport an x number of a specific goods between all of those towns, and for winning gold.... I don't know, you may say what to do for gold. And of course, this looks easy, but with a lot of events which I said 2 posts ago, that'll make the scenario more difficult and more interesting to play. But it's a really good idea for others to give ideas. If anyone has a good or interesting ideas to put in this scenario, please tell us :) Bas
  5. The current rail lines connect the neighboring countries of Russia, China, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. Major events for Kazakhstan and the railroading industry: 1991: The former USSR declares Kazakhstan as an independent republic, and forces the country to hold elections August 1991: Nazarbayev is the new chairman of presidency (the new and first president) 1996: Nazarbayev reelected with 80% of the votes cast 1996: Kazakhstan Airlines declares bankruptcy, passenger rail transport increases slightly. December 1997: Capital change from Almaty to Astana (passenger numbers of Almaty decrease slightly, Astana passenger numbers increase slightly) 1998: Eschede train disaster occurs, 101 dead, passenger rail transport decreases for a short period of time. 2006: The national airline Air Astana is growing fast, passenger rail transport declines. 2006: GDP grows 10,9% 2008: Financial crisis starts, less passengers to transport. 2011: Nazarbayev reelected for his fourth term with 95,6% of the votes cast. 2012: GDP grows 6% Hope this helps. Personally, I would start the scenario in 1991, because that's the year Kazakhstan got independent. I would really appreciate it if you'd edit the scenario. Go ahead if you have any more questions.

  6. I do not know what you exactly mean, but the railways in Kazakhstan are around 75% unelectrified, on those tracks run diesel trains. On the electrified tracks are running diesel trains too, but also electric trains. Have a look here for more information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kazakhstan_Temir_Zholy#Rolling_stock
  7. Sorry for the lack of information. There are five cities in Kazakhstan that are the most important for rail transport: Almaty (the former capital and largest city), Astana (the current capital city), Atyrau (important city for connections to Russia), Aktau (a town with an important port), and Shymkent, the second largest city. All railway lines were built between 1890 and 1930. The most important rail connections are: Almaty-Atyrau (twice daily service), Almaty-Astana (4 times daily service), Atyrau-Aktau (daily service) and Almaty-Shymkent (as part of the Almaty-Atyrau service). A list of the largest cities in Kazakhstan: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kazakhstan#Demographics The company currently running all rail services in the country is called ''Kazakhstan Temir Zholy'': http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qazaqstan_Temir_Zholy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:%D0%96_%D1%82%D1%80%D0%B0%D0%BD%D1%81%D0%BF%D0%BE%D1%80%D1%82_%D0%9A%D0%B0%D0%B7%D0%B0%D1%85%D1%81%D1%82%D0%B0%D0%BD_(2).svg The 3 most important lines in the country are: The Trans-Aral Railway, running from Tashkent to Orenburg, connects in Kazakhstan the border of Uzbekistan and Atyrau to the border of Russia. The Atyrau-Aktau rail service runs a part in this line, too. and the Turkestan-Siberia railway, running from Tashkent to Barnaul in Russia, connects in Kazakhstan Almaty and Semipalatinsk. Most railways are single tracked, because there are only a few trains per day running on them. Freight trains yield to long-haul intercity trains. Uranium, port products, oil, gas and cotton gets produced in the west of the country, iron, steel and coal are produced in the north, lumberjack productions sites are because of the dense forests located in the northeast, high-tech and modern industries are located in the area around Almaty, Sheep, cows and other cattle products are located in the area around Uzbekistan, in the steppe and the area around Astana, and the military production factories and barracks are located in the southwestern cities. The largest mountain is the Khan Tengri mountain at the borders of Kyrgyzstan, China and Kazakhstan, as where all high mountains in the country are located. The center and south of Kazakhstan is steppe, the west is lowland, the northeast is slightly mountainous and has dense forests, just like the north. Kazakhstan is overall not a very mountainous country. Earthquakes, tornadoes and tsunamis rarely occur, although forest fires do happen in the warmer months of the year. But the landscape is nothing to worry about, I've already did that for you as you see. I hope this motives anyone to create a scenario, if you have any questions, don't hesitate and ask me them! Bas
  8. Hey, If anyone is interested in making a scenario for my nearly blank map, feel free to do so, because I'm not too good at making scenarios for a map. I've already added several events, but they do not work very well. If you want to have the entire scenario different, then don't hesitate to do so. Just remember that Kazakhstan was declared independent from the USSR in 1991. Kazakhstan.zip
  9. Thanks so much! The map is now working correctly. Once I'm done with making the map more detailed and when I'm done with putting up a scenario, I will upload the map to the site. Thanks for helping!
  10. Kazakhstan.zip That's a good idea. Here's the map. Feel free to change the settings!
  11. Thanks for the advice, but I have already done that several times. If you take for example the map ''Eastern Canada'' you can see that the products are already available. I'm talking about 10 to 15 products, my map has only 1 as I already said. Any other suggestions? It's a frustrating problem. Bas
  12. Hello fellow Railroaders, This is my first time I post something on the forum with this account, I had an account back in 2008, but since then took a break from Railroad Tycoon 3. But now I'm back with RRT3 since a few months and I have started making my own map. The map has no flaws except for just one that spoils the entire game, I have for some reason no products to supply or to demand. In the ''Overview'' tab I only see ''Diesel'', and that's it. If I run a railway line from point A to B on the map, the train doesn't transport anything at all. No food, no steel, not even passengers or mail. I think I did something wrong with the settings, but I don't which one exactly. Thank you for making a very useful forum for RRT3 & RRT2. Bas
