Minister,

What version of Minetest are you using, and on what platform? As long as the mod is enabled for the world, it should just work.

did you put the mod into the mods folder?
and did you configure the world and enable the mod?
and did it say anything in chat?
Do not call me -minetest.
Call me DS or DS-minetest.
I am German, so you don't have to pm me English if you are also German.

Does your "mods" folder contain these files:
init.lua, couple.lua, wagons.lua...
Then you haven't installed it properly.
Create a directory "advtrains" inside "mods".
Extract the ZIP into the "advtrains" directory.
Start minetest, select world, configure, activate "advtrains".
Try creative mode and look if you see stuff.

Thanks for the users who replied above. To orwell, that is what I usually do with a mod. I copy it to the mods folder, rename it and such, and activate it. But creative or survival, I do not see anything resembling a train. I use the latest version, I downloaded it in May. I have created the directories and all that. It's not a terribly big deal, I'd just like to see some trains.

Check your debug file, it will probably contain the answer to why the trains aren't showing. Well the error anyway, and then we can help you figure out how to fix it.

I will get on it soon. Im trying to actually run a rail line through my world so I can get to an ocean liner Im building. Have no idea why I said that, but...yeah. The minecart mod doesn't want to cooperate either. Sometimes I can get out of the cart!XD

Advtrains works with 0.4.14, except for a couple of minor bugs, that shouldn't be the problem.

Yeah sorry bout that. I downloaded Minetest in May, and so far as I know, that was the latest update. I think. A few weeks after that I downloaded the advtrains mod and the minecart mod. I dunno.

I would download a new copy of advanced trains, there have been a lot of updates to it.
A new version of Minetest did just release on the 22nd of this month, so you might want to update that as well.

There are some changes on their way, but they are not finished yet.
Will be kind of a new year's update.

I think I downloaded on the 22. XD. Im not sure. I love trains and seeing them and ships in Minetest would be amazing.

Hello, Orwell, i`ve read your manual and i understand what to do now.But when i connected Japanese Engine with Japanese Wagon and i started to drive them engine was disconnecting and driving one.I also watched Celeron55`s video about it and he could connect whole train!Why is it so?

Happy new year everyone. I am still rewriting parts of the mod to fix bugs.
- splitting up core and trains into separate mods
- make coupling work on all occasions
- performance improvements
- fix discouple entities not disappearing
- mod API documentation
New features coming in a near future version (possibly not the next release, but soon):
- Automatic train control system (both mesecon/digiline interfaceable and persistent in unloaded chunks, detailed explanation/documentation follows) to finally build automated subway systems
- limit seat access to players
- new wagons
- detailed steam train wagon (with seats inside)
Andrey01, I don't know what you're doing wrong. Did you right-click the couple? It should have become red.

EDIT: you can track the dev status in branch v2.0-dev.

v. 1.1: added fancy steam wagon

@Andrey01: This version is the first one with official API. To comply with the "Semantic Versioning" standard I just restarted the version numbering. Don't get confused, it's the latest version with the most features.
