The Spark & The Embers
I believe it would be prudent to get the most important announcements out of the way first.
At present, there is no new content in development for SMWorks, and there is not likely to be any additional content uploaded in the foreseeable future. This is due to the game and people surrounding it, primarily. Trainz as a game is a nightmare to work with, regardless of how new or old your version is, and it is ultimately no longer worth it.
As well, you may have noticed a little bit of a change in colour on the site. I've edited the CSS a bit to give the site a little bit of a Spark-inspired theme. It's a nice look, I think. There were some changes to the buttons, and I think I caught all of them but if there's an issue let me know ASAP.
The site is planned to continue up to November 2019 after the next cycle (Nov 2018), but after that, we shall see. If it proves not to be worth it to continue to host the site, either it'll be downsized or everything moved over to my old friends at The Erecting Hall - they do a great job archiving all sorts of Trainz content, and they even have some of my creations there. You'll know here months before that happens if it were to indeed occur, so no worries. We've got over a year to figure it out - it shouldn't be a problem.
There's a lengthier post about this all on the Trainz Forums, but the detail isn't necessary here.
In short, nothing new is likely to show up here unless I'm straight up told I can post old skins or given something to host, but neither are likely. Site will continue till November, 2019, but after that the future remains to be seen (partially depends on Trainz as a whole continuing).
Your comment will be posted after it is approved.

Hello, my name is SM, and this is where I write.
This little blogspace is where my thoughts go - whether it's talking about a photography trip or a DJ mix, this is where it all ends up.
