Free Winter Upgrade For Canton (scroll down to bottom)
|The Canton route is a seventy-five mile route meant to be 'anywhere USA.' Originally based on
the Georgia Woodlands RR, Canton now represents parts of the connecting CSX mainline
through Georgia. A modular route, the newest addition, Grove City, now adds increased mainline
running to what was solely a switching route. All four packages combine to over 50 industries, 22+ towns,
8 yards, and 12 depots. The bulk of the scenery, whether structures or vegetation, is built to scale and
use photo-textures for extra realism.|
Installation is easy. Included are colorful manuals for all the modules that brings
the world of Canton to life. The combined modules comes with over 90+ activities.
Available free and required by the route is Dick Cowen's Canton and FLC rollingstock packages.
-You can purchase through Paypal. Paypal accepts credit card payments.
The Grove City Expansion is here! Grove City compliments Thompson by completing the mainline run from Prudence to
Grove City. The whole Canton route is 75 miles long with single/double track mainline (with signals). Grove
City is magnificent with new vegetation techniques and building placements allowing me to model countryside and
the 'big city' like you've never seen it before in MSTS. But don't take my word for it, have a look at what
users are showing already!
And be sure to check out Tim Baldwin's incredible Canton pictures of
Grove City, like its counterparts, comes with many new objects. And Grove City comes with 4 new track textures
easily swapped one for another.
The included Grove City manual explains how to swap track textures.
With Grove City you get 40 new spurs, 6 new industries (including a cement plant with rotating kilns), foundry, textile
mill, and the US Army is represented with our own Fort Gridley (very detailed). And if you enjoy country running or a
switching in the big city, Grove City has both. New vegetation techniques allow for even more depth and detail than before.
Grove City has the feeling and look of a big city. This is because I created new models which allowed me to populate the Grove
City area more densely. And no smoke and mirror tricks here. Those are actual 3d rendered buildings and not flats. Just one look
from above will give you that sense you are in the middle of a big city.
And included with Grove City is 10 activities picking up right where Thompson left off. This means you have 90+ playable activities
for the whole Canton route spanning the origins of the Canton RR all the way through your time with the FLC.
Winter Upgrade For Canton
Available at no charge to you is this 5 meg easy to install giving Canton's winter activities a new
look. Winter never looked more gloomy? But the additions of leafless trees and shrubbery to match add
a new level to Canton's immersiveness. See the pictures below for just a small glimpse how effective
the new textures are.
The pics above (by Rod McLauchlan) only begin to show the depth of realism created by the new texxtures.
Head on over to the All Aboard forum (see link at top of the page) and look for Paul Prechts snowy winter
day on Canton pictures to see how a different set of winter textures just for a snowy day remind you of your
own day when you looked out the window and saw a winter snow storm.
