Steam, Tracks, Trouble & Riddles (S.T.T.&R.) is a single player adventure mod, based on source engine (Orange Box) by Valve. It combines two types of game play: an adventure game with complex, 3D-interactive riddles in a fantastic environment and a simulator for track based vehicles.
Some kind of steam-locomotive like vehicles you will drive through an post-war environment. The final goal is finding a “secret wagon” and destroying a hidden nuclear-bomb. After a long journey through the guts of a huge Megalopolis you will end up ... ok, prepare for unforseen consequences ;-)
Human life was wiped out in 1962/63 after the (fictional) failure of the cuba crisis. Machines developed their own “architecture” adding weird stuff to the existing world of the 1960ties.
It is a fictional world which might have happened, if men has gone and only robots still existing in 2525.
Have a look on the website Animationdesign.de .

Vehicles like “The Handcar”, “The E-Tram” and the “SteamerTram” are actually compiled and presented in a demo video: Youtube.com
The time has come for the first release of Chapter One of Steam, Tracks, Trouble & Riddles.
More than four years passed by until this moment. In the past months we had a beta test. The result was promising, but some glitches and oddities especially in the first riddle (the crane) causes some headache.
When all this was fixed I presented it proudly to a good friend:
an even a bigger bug while a map transfer came up. Bad thing: it wasn't reproducebable which is a nightmare for development. But some guessing, analysing and some more testing fixed it.
The mod will be placed in the download section after authorisation: Moddb.com
There is no self installation yet. But a a release guide waits for you there as well. Just read it if you like to know more about installation. It contains some general information as well. Later on there will be a resolution guide for people, who do not
like to solve the riddles and just want to step through the scenery.
Be aware that reading this will spoil the fun of solving the riddles.
But sticking in the middle of the mod isn't fun as well, so I decided to make this.
Will be posted soon.
