Wow, that looks like a tremendous amount of work.
I am guessing I'd be better off starting a new Legacy to make sure I get to see all the new things?
Looking great! Are these going to be point to point routes or is some shunting planned? Also how is it going to play with passenger traffic? Also also, what are the controls like?
Can't wait! :)
... I did not know that. I shall do so!
Have already enjoyed a few drives (can confirm that urban areas look a lot better; noticed some glitches on overpasses where the bridge wall and surface don't line up, there are gaps), and have finally dared to turn off a few assists. I can't imagine driving without the route map though, it just seems impossible without advance warning of speed changes. Maybe I could get away without signals and just rely on AWS, hmm ... :)
Looking forward to whatever is next, keep up the great work.
This is shaping up really nicely! Can custom routes be shared easily? I realize any sort of route curation or download hub is a huge amount of work and a whole new can of worms to deal with. :)
All the new graphics enhancements look great!
Nooooo it looks great as-is! :) IMO, the vibrancy of the colors works really well with the art style of the decor. If you make it more "realistic" looking, that'll draw attention to the stylistic approach of the scenery, and you won't gain anything. Keep as is, please, and focus on the actual content (routes etc), please!
I grabbed this after the RPS article, played it, and had to drop by to compliment the author. The fidelity is through the roof (after the sterility of TS) and I love how smoothly it runs. Also digging the "which key to press" feature which is actually teaching me how to run this train better than any other sim; I should be able to turn it off in another day or two! And having a "less than 25 minutes" (and other similar easy-to-use choices) in the route selector is just brilliant.
Keep up the great work.
