Well after 2 years of planning I think I've finally gotten enough information and equipment to succesfully restart developing RP2 again. ;P

For now RP2 will be based in the upcoming Transport Fever by Urban Games (creators of Train Fever) as a fan made Dlc to test th...

RRP2 Update #1- And so it begins!

Posted by jm764 on May 28, 2014 at 4:40 PM Comments comments (0)

Still thinking about the offical title, but I got all the resources I need to begin working on the game.


For now I'm thinking of using the upcoming trainsportation game Train Fever as a base to develop the game off of before creating our own gameplay engine.


Basically I'm going to start the game off as a mod to TF then make it its own stand alone game.


Now I'm going start working on the American vehicles, buildings, and scenarios/campaings...

Good news and bad news...

Posted by jm764 on February 17, 2014 at 9:10 AM Comments comments (1)

The GOOD news is my game programing skills have improved tremendously as well as my 3d modeling!


The Bad news is that I won't be able to make an "expansion pack" to the game since I can't find all the software used to make the game. Guess it renders the poll "useless" huh? ^_^;


But I'm still going to make the game either way using unity, since I'm learning how to program with it in my game dev class. Also I plan on porting it to other devices after the PC v...

Hi to all loyal fans out there!
The last entry I made here is almost 1 year old by now.

finally finished with school after 12 years.

I haven't forgot about the site and all the people
that were or are still involved in helping me with
this project. Since the official website of the game
may never retu...

Hello dear community!

I just wanted to give a short update about the site and
Railroad Pioneer in general.

I'm deeply sorry that there isn't that much new stuff on the site already!
I know I said I wanted to add some information & maybe a new design.
The thing is that some things didn't worked when I was trying to
do something new by adding some codes to the site, so I was a bit frustraded
