Update:

Sorry for the continuous delays. It has been a busy summer for me which has caused an extreme lack of free time to work on this. Constant travel on my weekends and long work days on my weekdays has left me with minimal time.
The last month I've been trying to bug fix some of the course issues people have been having. After spending May/June trying to figure it out, it seems it stems from the courses needing to be re-exported. So I've been going through each course, one-by-one, making subtle improvements (mainly quality of life so that all the courses visually look cohesive) and re-exporting. I am almost done with the trouble courses (mainly Australia), and hope I can get this mod update out soon. I apologize again for the constant delays - I just don't want to release an update that doesn't solve most of the common problems.

Hi Mj,

Have played starters orders for a long time and i have only just started to try the mods since i got starters orders 7. Finally got a normal pc instead of mac.

I believe i have done all the folders correctly. Triple checked before i did everything. Game works fine and everything is realistic and so much better then standard with the actual trainers and jockeys. If i sim all races it seems to be working fine but now when i try and watch any of the new tracks you have added it just shuts game down instantly. I play the AUS schedule and so far it has happened at Hobart, Launceston, Sapporo (Not aus but there seems to be a lot of races there). I can send through the rest as they happen but i am thinking it is the newly added tracks.

I think all of the modders do an unreal job and it makes an awesome game even better.

Hey Pigeon89,

Yep! That's the issue I encountered and am fixing. The Australian (and some Japanese) courses need to be re-exported. I'm working through that, while also making some quality of life changes to those courses. My lack of availability is why it hasn't gone out yet. I plan to finish and send out the updates on September 21/22 when I'm free again (September 21 is the first Saturday since May that I'll be home so I'll finally be able to work on this with enough time to finish it up, zip, and send out).

Post Re: Start It Mod 4.0
New user here and I can't seem to get Start it 4.0 to work. If anyone could be so kind to lend me a hand.

I'm starting with a clean install (Steam version of SO7). I've created a folder called Startit in the mods folder. In this Startit folder, I have db and gfx from the Start It Data.zip

Then I've placed the 3D folder from the Start it Courses.zip in the main SO7 folder, overwriting some of the default folder.

Next, I've placed the entities folder from the Start it Courses.zip in the 3D folder.

And finally, I've copied over the folders in the Start It 4.01.zip patch to the appropriate folders above overwriting the old files.

When I start a new save, I select the mod, "Startit" and then select the country USA. All appears well until I click the start button on the screen where I pick the Legend horses to include in the save. The game hangs and dumps me back to Windows 10 desktop.

The default game w/o selecting any mods works. When I hit the start button at the Horse Legends screen, it creates the 1 year form. Everything works.

I've also tried installing the db folder from the Start It Data.zip straight into the default directory and I still have the same issue. It crashes at the same point.

Any advice?

Thank you

There was a new update 4 days ago for SO7. Could any of these be the cause of the issue I am having? The game continues to crash on the initial creation/simulation of the 1-year form prior to game start.

0.149

AI optimisations to speed up autoruns etc.
Some extra lower handicaps replacing maiden races with field problems (not 2yo).
Possible lock up end of first season (usualy jumps) related to no Stallions available fixed.
Bug related to withdrawing prepped horses (if required) fixed.
Prep horse suplimented for race without considering current declarations and conflicts. Fixed. Disance and race value now considered.
Win table icon wrong (introduced last patch) fixed.
maxruns and maxwins fix.
Handicapping tweaks primary regarding Novice and Maiden runners. Lower ratings for poor performances. Feedback required.
Form book fix to allow correct browsing after returning from horse data screen.
maxruns and maxwins work with 0.
Layout bug on race card (occasional large gaps) fixed.
Breeding (global) Stud screen. Progeny group wins fixed.
Past performances (horse data) table jockey feedback icon fix.
Start year changed to 2020.
