kamyFC Posted June 20, 2020 Share Posted June 20, 2020 (edited) Excess on the Orient Express is the 8th mission in the classic campaign of the game. Its about the development of the European Orient Express during the mid to late 1800's.These were the win conditions. We start at 1850Bronze: Connect Paris to Constantinople and haul 24 loads between the two cities by 1889. Silver: Same as above, but by 1887. Gold: Same as above, but by 1883. Essentially this is a "coast to coast" map. But unlike the American or Canadian "coast to coast" maps, you have the added challenge of purchasing territory from all the countries in between. So you need to consult every country and pay them money for track rights. So the first thing to do is just build lines between 2 ports - which generate passengers. I ignored Paris and built a line between La Rochelle and Caen - both had ports. That started generated amazing money. Then make one giant line between Paris and Constantinople! Single track is more than enough. Also ensure we have dummy stations to replenish Water, Sand and Oil. You have an option to go via Germany north of the Alps or go via Italy - south of the Alps. I chose Italy, just to make things challenging as you had to cross the alps. However, there are certain "events" that happen in German side that will affect u! I wont spoil it! Made some 10 trains between Paris and Constantinople and getting Gold was easy. I love these message boxes!
