TS 2019 64 bit & VNHRR Springfield Line

Several users have reported that the Springfield Line crashes in the new 64-bit TS 19 when starting any scenario.

We believe we have found a fix for the crash with the route in 64-bit TS. Wayne has tweaked the objects for the "global" (always visible) distant scenery items for a somewhat reduced resource footprint and that seems to have done the trick. (Don't ask us though why the original, more detailed objects work fine in 32-bit TS which theoretically should have less resources available for them).

Anway, here is a patch:
http://vnhrr.golden-age-rails.com/files/2018-10-27%20Global%20Fix%20-%20WC.zip
Just install it directly to your Railworks main folder and allow it to overwrite files. If you want to create a backup of the original files first, back up these:
- the entire folder Assets\VNHRR\Springfield\Scenery\Global
- the file Content\Routes\c427bd51-0f8f-4edb-948b-e9b5ceadd48f\Scenery\GlobalScenery.bin

Please note that this patch has so far only been tested by Wayne and me. We hope that it works for everybody, but we can't guarantee it. Please report back if it doesn't work for you and the crash persists even after installing the patch.

  3. guys since there is the 64 bit, why don't you extend south the route? to grand central terminal would be nice, but I wouldn't mindd stamford.
    That should be easy since much of the assets can be reused form new haven line.
    I really like to see the line as it was back in the day

  5. I tried this fix and it took the Springfield Route completely out of my TS-2019 listing of routes. I checked my STEAM DLC and it shows Springfield Route is still installed, but it and none of the locos that came with the route is in my TS-2019 list of locos and routes. How can i fix this? Thanks.
