I don't speak German, and I don't see a forum for English anymore, so I'll just share some pics from a small harbor layout I designed to experiment with and shared in the community.  The final layout is about 6 times larger than this one, but there are too many scratch built items that have to be saved to my own catalog, so I won't be sharing the full size layout since it will have a lot of question marks on it.

Thank you fex and Goetz.

Don't feel bad fex; at least you do speak German and English.  I only know English, so you have me beat.

There are probably hundreds of little details that could be added Goetz, but since I've left all of the scratchbuilt items in their primitive form, my computer's memory is about maxxed out on this one.

I tried sharing this and other layouts with the community so people could explore it or use parts of it if they want, but everything I've tried sharing lately is reporting an unknown error.  I don't like that because I enjoy exploring other people's work in the community, and I've been inspired by the work other people have done.

is it - maybe - a conflict of MBS versions that prohibts you from uploading a layout? If you're ahead of the current official version and working with a beta issue, uploads of layouts are not possible (I believe).

Still - you can always export your layout to an mbs file and then attach this to a posting here. That would at least grant some readers here access to it.

About Germany: Check out Rew Boss on Youtube. He's a brit who's now spent half his life in Germany. It's really entertaining to hear him describe Germany from his british point of view. Most of his videos are in English. And his German is excellent!

Thank you Goetz.  I had downloaded the beta upgrade, but I didn't like it, so I removed it.  Some of the layouts I've tried to share were submitted before the upgrade, so I'm not sure why they are still in review, or why there are unknown errors.  It seems the game has a few programming bugs still, but hopefully they will be worked out over time.

Thank you N-Bahn-Bastler.  All the scratchbuilt items are made from the game's primitives so if it will upload to the community anyone can use them and save them to their catalog if they want to.  I don't see any sense in making something that can't be shared by others.
