Forest Train, Version 1.1 is now available. It was already a fantastic release and I am sure this update will make it even better.

  1. Even though, this mod is really great, I really wanted to be longer

    This is one of those cases where it is what it is. You’re not the first one to ask “Why don’t you make longer mods?” but the truth is, I know what my limitations are. In particular, how long I can work on the same mod before I start to get tired of it. To me, there’s an elegance to single map design and being able to accomplish everything you set out to do in a small form factor.

  3. Its just brilliant 🙂 I rated it 10 out of 10, a PF the first time. Now its the same, only better! This improved release meant I got to play it again, I might have forgotten otherwise!
