Phase 1 Release with Installer, 09/24/2011

A set of orthogonal modular animated railroad crossing props to spice up your SimCity 4 railway experience!

This mod includes both the necessary props for orthogonal road networks as well as three basic sets of T21 exemplars.

Both RHD and LHD T21s are provided, along with a compatability file for the Rail Catenary Mod and the necessary path files to activate the crossing animations on OWR and RHW based networks.

As with all T21 mods, you must redraw the affected tiles for the game to change the props. In addition, if you find that the animations are not working on OWR or RHW crossings, you may need to bulldoze and redraw the crossing to force the game to update the paths. When driving a train in UDI mode, a graphical glitch may occur in which the crossing arms are drawn in both the vertical rest position and animating closed. This is an unavoidable, but harmless graphic bug and affects the Maxis crossing gates as well.

Important notes: Installing multiple T21 sets without any other changes will result in only the last alphabetical set functioning. When using the mix-and-match option, please install all three sets for your driving side as well as the mix-and-match folder and follow the directions below.
