DESCRIPTION
___________________________________________________
Deep in the bowels of the earth, the Dwemer constructed vast cities of gleaming bronze and chiseled stone. Their networks criss-crossed all of northern Tamriel, stretching from Hammerfell in the west all the way to Morrowind in the east. Now, rumors of a gleaming steam engine have emerged from the depths of Blackreach, capable of travelling at enormous speeds, and able to connect the furthest-flung outposts of the buried Dwemer civilization. Will you be able to unlock its mysteries?
Blackreach Railroad is a travel and quest mod for the steam-oriented player. It adds a locomotive, a train line, and a series of train stations around Blackreach and other Dwemer ruins. After a short quest to reactivate the train, the player may then freely ride the engine throughout Blackreach.
In addition to this, the player may choose to ride on uncharted track, thereby unlocking new stations throughout Skyrim.
And for those wondering, you do indeed get a train hat.

FEATURES
____________________________________________________
-A working, rideable, steam locomotive, complete with a working horn!
-A short quest to reactivate the aforementioned engine
-Another short quest in which the player may traverse uncharted track to unlock new stations. Along the way they'll fight Falmer, spiders, and one really really big centurion. I'm not kidding, that thing is gigantic.
-A new staff that shoots hot steam at people
-A train hat, given to you by the ghostly stationmaster
-A ghostly stationmaster, to help you drive your train


INSTALLATION

This mod ABSOLUTELY 100% REQUIRES you to download the BlackreachRailroad.ESM file. This is a master file that the plugin requires, and the mod WILL NOT WORK without it. You may download it from here:

After you have downloaded it, copy it to your Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/skyrim/data folder, and activate it along with BlackreachRailroad.esp. IF YOU DO NOT DO THIS, THE MOD WILL NOT WORK.
Now, onto less important things. I recommend that you load Blackreach.esp earlier in your load list, especially after anything that modifies Dwemer dungeons.
To begin the quest to reactivate the train itself, head to the Hall of Rumination, down in Blackreach.
If you are unable to see certain things, such as the train tunnel, any sort of floor, or the train itself, turn up your Object Fade level.

TROUBLESHOOTING, COMPATABILITY AND TIPS
_____________________________________________________

-Several mods do in fact conflict or cause problems with Blackreach Railroad. Lighting and ENB mods have been noted to cause lights and textures to flicker and glitch out in stations, though no crashes have been reported. For a full list of known problems, see the section below.
- Odd problems (such as random cells unrelated to the mod disappearing) will be caused by this mod, though apparently it's inevitable due to Skyrim handling mods terribly. There's really no way to fix it, as it's more game-specific than anything.
-If you fall off the train or the train platform, don't worry, the stationmaster has set up several ladders that you may use to climb back on, look for them.
-The powercube for the locomotive may be crafted at any forge, under the 'misc' tab.
-Centurion Prime's arena has several crossbow towers placed throughout, which do massive damage. Use them against him if you have trouble, but be aware they are hard to aim.
-When the train is held up by Falmer, be aware you cannot open some of the chests in their tents. This is deliberate. You don't want to know what's in those chests.


KNOWN INCOMPATIBILITIES
_________________________________________
-More Dynamic Shadows
-Realistic Lighting (No actual crashes, but will cause lights to flicker)
-Some sound modifying mods will replace the generic "something happened" sound with the train horn.
-I've noticed some problems during chargen, no idea what causes it, but I recommend turning this mod on AFTER you leave Helgen.

Why not.

Why do all your quest mods have lots of levers

've been wanting to try this mod, got the ESM, then subscribed on Steam. I used the TES5 to make sure everything appeared compatible. Got this error:

[00:50] Background Loader: [BlackreachRailroad.ESM] Building reference info.
[00:50] Background Loader: Fatal: <EAssertionFailed: Found additional GRUP Cell Children of BlackreachZcell06 "Hall of Rumination" [CELL:000B29D4] for BlackreachZcell06 "Hall of Rumination" [CELL:000B29D4] (D:\Projects\TES5Edit\wbImplementation.pas, line 7543)>
[01:00] Background Loader: finished

Usually I puzzle these things out---but I'm no modder, so I'm not sure exactly what I should do here. Anyone seen this before?

Sorry, had to make 256th comment since your mods ARE WONDERFUL and not some measly 255-limit gimmicks.

I downloaded it and put it into the folder, but it won't show up in the content list.
Trainwiz  [author] Mar 30 @ 6:03pm 
You need to get the ESM off of one of the sites

How do I activate the .esm? It's not in the List of mod content.
