Working on a new Update to Train Sim, this time I am creating a brand new Subway Level, including all new route, stations, tunnels and rails. Here is a small preview of what a few of the new Subway Stations will look like.
Here is a preview of a new feature I am working on for Train Sim Creative mode that will allow you to share your custom built environments with other players as well as import other people’s creations into your instance of Train Sim. Coming Soon to Train Sim
Train Sim Creative Mode improvements and changes are now available in Public Beta.
One of the frequent complains I receive from our fans is that the railcars in Train Sim are always empty. This breaks some of the immersion and is an obvious an area for improvement.
However in the past I have been reluctant to add more details to the interiors of the trains to ensure that Train Sim performs well on slower devices. Adding more polygons (3D Models) to a scene can easily overwhelm the GPU and crash the game on older phones and tablets.
The solution that occurred to me is to enable the high quality passengers for newer and higher powered devices and keep the older passenger models and empty railcars for devices that are older and less powerful.
So to that end here is a small preview of the new passenger models I am adding to the interior of railcars. I will also be replacing the passenger models currently used when onboarding and departing railcars when the train is stopped, with these higher quality ones.
Coming Soon to Train Sim
Here is a small preview of the new Class 37 Engine coming soon to Train Sim
I think a new Train Yard Level needs a new Switcher Locomotive. Here is a preview of the new ChME2 Switcher coming soon to Train Sim
Sometimes you just want to build a train. Coming soon to Train Sim, a new Train Yard level that will allow you to shunt cars into trains to your hart’s content. I am even thinking of having a random car setup every time you start the level. Let me know what you think.
Looks like the Train Drivers in Train Sim are getting ready for the holidays. Enjoy the limited time Christmas Train version of the EMD GP 38, now until the New Year!
