Trainz Community Express Archives
29th May 2002
Last week's Trainz Community website in the spotlight, MaxTrainz, went down from the attention it received with all of your hits. The upshot of all this is that young Max is on the move; you will find the new MaxTrainz at http://maxtrainz.oldiesoracle.net. Thanks Hextrasher for helping Max with the hosting of his website.
Also, in last week's Express I mentioned the Trainz chat, a hangout for many of the Trainz Community regulars. You may also like to check out Stoffe's Trainz Chat Statistics page.
This week's website in the spotlight is CroTrainz run by the much luved and respected sinister fat controller himself, Barney (patent owner of drool mops and many other Trainzisims). CroTrainz has been a great support center for all things Trainz and train simming in general. For news about the train sim scene you really cannot go past CroTrainz. Just watch your step on the forums or you may find yourself written up in the Fat Controllers little black book.
If you would like your Trainz website to be featured in a future Community Express please email the details through to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
In this week's Download Station report you will see that we have received over 80 new uploads (including a few updates), thanks for the contributions!

On the topic of third-party content, creators might like to take a look at the following post to the forum; a reminder of the distribution guidelines for third-party content.
My Trainz waffle thread of the week features some great lines from the one and only 3801. How can you go past "Because the last time I checked, God wasn't doing any custom content for Trainz." The thread started with an innocent question, What does the Auran logo mean? and why are there no real stars in Trainz? and waffled on from there ;)
Check back for more Community Express next week.
