I'm so sorry to hear. I hope that coming back here and chatting with us will do you good. It's aways great to have a community like this, especially about racing!

Although I've never ridden horse (and do not plan too), the grace and elegance of them is a sight to be seen. Such brilliance to watch.

You've never ridden?! Its something you should definitely try at some point. Its great exercise, but such fun you don't realize it until much later (the pain in the inner thighs is a nightmare until your body adapts). Honestly though, the bond between horse and rider (well with a horse that knows and likes you)... there is no way to describe it. You feel almost at one with them, like you can predict their behavior (whether that be good or bad) just by the way you can feel their muscles moving, the ease or tenseness of their steps. And it seems that they can sense what you want as well, they can sense whether you are calm or excited and can learn what to expect from you when they sense that. They learn what your small movements in the saddle mean, small enough movements that most people watching wouldn't even know your weight shifted slightly, but they feel it, and know what you want, what it means. I truly feel for jockeys and exercise riders when a horse they've ridden often is being retired, knowing its their last ride on them. It almost feels like a breakup, like they're taking a piece of your heart with them.

@ Mjtags11 - I have decided to return to the virtual world of horse racing after 3-4 years. I thought I would give Starters Orders 6 another go. Well actually I have the greyhound racing game as well and we have just rescued an ex racer who happens to be the nephew of Westmead Hawk the great hound who won the English Derbies in 2005 and 2006.

Anyway back to SO6. I have installed your International Mod and Silks and its all working perfectly fine. Now I remember back then you did a Racing UK and/or At The Races graphics package as well? If so I can't remember where the download link is/was. I was wondering whether or not you still have that mod and if so would it be possible to post a link so as I can download it please.

You won't remember me but I was the guy asking about such a mod, I think your posts of images are on around page 25 of this topic. They look(ed) good. I asked back then if you were doing a mod package for them and I remember you saying yes.

The thing is I have your up to date International Mod. Would the UK graphics work with that? Have you got a seperate UK graphics package at all? If so that would be great as I am from England and mainly watch the UK based racing.

I Look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards and thanks.

Edit: Nevermind I've found it in your old files. Many thanks.

Hi all

My trusty old HD just went and died on me so I had to go and buy me a new one :(. That means I needed to reinstall the Start It mod all over again (using Steam btw). Unfortunately I can't remember the installation order of the mod files. I installed them like this:

1. Start It 2.50 Data
2. Start It 2.51 Data Update
3. Start It 2.34 - Courses & Graphics
4. Start It 2.50 Courses
5. Start It 2.34 - Graphics

6. Start It International Data
7. Start It International

I deleted the orginal course files as instructed in the Youtube video by Chris Ormie and the game is running fine so far. My problem is that I'm missing most of the international races.
I'm playing a US game and only the Canadian races + one race day in Hong Kong (14. december) is showing up.
In the world map all counties are present (IRE, UK, GER, FRA, DUB, HK, JAP, AUS, NZL), but except from the above mentioned, they have no race features.
Can anyone please tell me what I'm doing wrong? Help would be very much appreciated since I really do not want to play SO6 without this great mod!

Does anyone have a solution for Santa Anita? Or an old file that works. I'm trying to avoid downloading an original course file that has the old Santa Anita. Plus I have no idea which download includes the old Santa Anita.

Thanks

I am working on a fix for Santa Anita... tho I have no idea why it doesn't work - I have never run into any problems with it.

The last two things I will be doing is my 2018 Schedule and a model of The Downs at Albuquerque. These are the last two things I will do for SO6. SO7 will become my priority once that comes out.

Hi MJ,

Hope you are well.

Do you know if someone has done an updated Sha Tin?

What I mean is one with the chutes accurately done.

Still loving your Flemington, Randwick and Rosehill courses.

Bye the way, have you done any other Aussie Courses?

Cheers mate.

John

Is there anyway to edit a saved game? I didn't change Dubai or Toronto when I first created my game, so I don't have Meydan or Woodbine races in my save. I would rather not start a new game from the beginning.

I've tried replacing the folder and it crashes. Also tried just overwriting the data from the quarter horse schedule and it still crashes. Any help would be great thanks

I've been delayed a lot more than I have liked to be.

I should have the 2018 schedule out by March - a lot more tracks have been changing their schedules than in past years, which has thrown it in flux. I also need to fix Aqueduct and create Albuquerque. Hoping to find time for that soon.

Sorry for the delay.

As for track bugs - I am working on them.
Also, I cannot guarantee that the Quarter Horse or Harness Mods still work -- they were for a much older edition than what we currently are running on (both SO updates and Start It updates).

I recently got around to downloading all of MJ's tracks and I encountered the Santa Anita problem. I went back to my previous Santa Anita that MJ made and the issue was resolved. If anyone needs just the Santa Anita track here it is...

http://www.mediafire.com/file/4jaqu22fe3fi8n3/SantaAnita.zip

The specs for Santa Anita that go in your course file are this...

Under ---- CATAG:cc_flatTurf1 **************

Santa Anita
LL380
F,0
233,506

Under --- CATAG:cc_dirt1 **************************

Santa Anita
LL283
F,0
233,506

All that was changed in the course specs was ",S" was removed after "F,0" for both instances.

And the last number which is the geographic pinpoint location on the map of the track. If I recall MJ's map locations weren't highly accurate. Mine are for all the tracks. If anyone wants a list of accurate map coordinates for the tracks I can rustle up something. You'll have to copy and paste them into the course file yourself.

For the Santa Anita download just copy and paste the "2_Santa Anita" folder into the courses folder found in the 3D folder of your StartersOrders6 directory after first removing the Santa Anita that is already there.

Thank you for this - hopefully this fixes everyone's problem. I haven't been able to find a solution cause... well... I can't find what the problem is. The course has worked fine on my side and even downloading all the files I have up, it still all works. Can't solve the problem if I can't find out what it is.

Also, I am very confident that the course locations I have are correct. I overlayed each course on the map to make sure it is accurate. Please let me know which courses aren't so I can change that. The only problem I ever encountered with locations was Florida since those courses get cut off the in game map for some weird reason.

I stand corrected. Many apologies. Looking at the locations again briefly let's just say most of yours are correct. Some are off. Most of mine are correct. Some are off. Which bothers me because I recall spending way too much time trying to get these locations perfect - and I didn't. This late in the game I really don't feel like doing this task again anytime soon.
