TRAINS!!!!!!

Loooong time lurker here :mrgreen:

Just wanted to get that old feeling back vis a vis Update Anticipation Threads (and trains ofc) :squirrel:

I hope I shocked some people though not enough for a mod to lock this thread :ghost:

I, for one, am excited for a return to a more regular update schedule *fingers crossed*

I'll let it sit here for now, unless one of the other mods wants to merge it.

I kinda miss the old hype. The days when you'd get ninja'd five times trying to make a post in the hype thread. Those were the days.

Will there be trains in LT? If so, what kind of trains would you like to see? Should trains have weapons on them, or should they be defenseless transports of the high speed warp rails? Should they hover over rail or ride on it in elegant brilliance? How do trains affect trade between cities? Should trains have fuel, or run on solar power?

These are the questions of a Limit Theorist who may want to become an engineer. ;)

According to this page on wikipedia we all come from squirrelly creatures:

well I guess if the "warp lanes" (not sure if they were called that) Josh has shown us in a development update video way back when will be in the game then you've got your answers right there, just put as many weapons and other stuff on your "trains" as you want :) although I suppose there could be additional types of transport lanes...but lets not start requesting new features just yet :P

I always had a fascination with militarised trains. Give it siege weaponry! :D

Indeed...here we go...again :roll: :lol:

I honestly don't even remember when or how trains became such a staple of the LT forums :ghost:

It's from the phrase, "The Hype Train has no brakes". People started posting pictures of trains that "couldn't be stopped", and it just evolved from there, until trains became a symbol of happiness and goodwill on the LT forums. :D

(Which is why we really need that train smiley)

My proposal for icon-ifying this pic into a "train smiley":
