    Nice! How about the framerate, is it a constant 60 fps now even when zooming in on the track while driving?

    I just did a quick run on Isle of Wight from Ryde Pier Head Station to Ryde Esplanade Station zoomed in all the way, and I couldn't detect any noticeable drops.

    Is the Trees Flickering and Blurred fixed?
    It was broken since TSW 2, specially on East Coastway the most

    Something about it feels smoother too, which is an odd thing to say, given that it originally ran at a pretty solid 4K 60FPS on Series X anyway, but there's something about the sharper visuals and the rock solid feeling framerate that just feels really nice, it's hard to describe.

    Is there a specific scenario on ECW you would like me to test that out on?

    It’s on Everything because it was a core issue.
    You Need to drive any Timetable but not at night to see the Trees well.

    Okie dokie, will have to do that whenever I get up, as I was up all night making sure the over 7 hour total download went smoothly, ugh...

    So you may need to wait on that one, apologies, but I shall endeavour to get around to it!

    Is the Series X version installed automatically after the update?

    Yes, the base game, and all installed updates, are automatically upgraded to the Xbox Series X version, although as noted in another thread, the DLC's, and even the game itself, may need a helping hand by booting up the game, being prompted for the upgrade, and then accepting them as they appear.

    I had to push the game several times before even the base game took the upgrade, and in the mean time, all 38 DLC's had appeared in the 'Updates' section of My Games & Apps, but that can be really slow to populate sometimes.

    Once I knew that at least the base game was taking the upgrade, I went ahead and installed the Boston Sprinter add-on via the Season Ticket.

    Just read elsewhere on here in another thread that the trees no longer flicker, hope that helps!

    Hmm in the game now, had to create a new profile :o So, you can’t bring your progress from the old build to the next-gen version?

    Yes probably, although I didn’t want to create a new one, since so many are popping up right now. And no I’m on XSX

    On XBox it synchs your cloud save the first time you load the game while connected to the internet and uses your most recent saved data from pre-patch, carrying everything across.
