    Is there any way we could have something small like Adelaide Metro or even just an NR Class locomotive for us Australians to keep quiet? Haha.

    Would you like to give us more info on what line that you want those loco/ route you wanna propose? I'd like to know which line in the Adelaide metro you want to be put into train sim and what line is the NR Class going to run. :)

    I would want either the Adelaide Metro (which I used to have a portion of way back in Trainz 2006) or the Sydney system, set anytime from the 80s to the present day. And if you make the Sydney system, please please please make the V Sets! I love the V Sets! As far as lines are concerned, I would want either the Noarlunga or Belair lines for Adelaide and either the Western/Blue Mountains Line or the North Shore/Central Coast & Newcastle Line for Sydney. As far as rolling stock is concerned, I would include a V Set for Intercity services and either a Tangara T Set or a Waratah A Set for Sydney Trains suburban services. Adelaide would get either the 3000/3100 Class DMUs or the Jumbo 2000/2100 Class DMUs.

    Come on DTG, there are more countries in the world than just the US, UK, and Germany.

    I can't understand why the developers aren't actively trying to get licence for Sydney Trains content - Rolling stock wouldn't be that hard to adapt from existing UK/USA stock apart from the EMU/DMU and even then it's not that big a jump. You could have everything from the old red rattlers to the new waratah b sets and in doing so you would have a large amount of scenarios that could be created, and lets face it there would be some awesome scenery - can you imagine driving a train over the Sydney Harbour Bridge!

    Something in Melbourne would be nice too like Southen Cross to Seymour which is around 115km and it takes around an hour and 30 mins in a Velocity, N Class. The XPT to Sydney can be included as well. Plenty of freight goes on this line as well, such as Pacific National NR's, XR's and G's. SCT has also started Freight services to Queensland via New South Wales. I'm not sure if Qube Logistics runs on this line.

    Southen Cross Via Flinders Street to Pakenham which is over 60km and takes around 1 hour but the line can get very congested due metro services. The the new Skyrail Project could be included as well. Freight services used to run to the Maryvale Paper Mill near Morwell but due to the Skyrail project, I don't think they run anymore.

    Southen Cross to Geelong which is over 70km and takes around an hour in a Velocity or an N class is possible too but I don't think freight services run on this line.

    I would like to see the adelaide metro network across the board. With the Gawler, seaford, tonsley, belair and outer harbour lines. Im trying to do this using UK packages but it's not the same. Really want adelaide metro with train simulator. I would be a beta tester for it too if it's available.

    Let's get 1210 out. She would look fabulous on so many routes. In my opinion the streamlined SAR engines could be neat too, but the old NSWGR 4-4-0s are top of the list. Someone like Smokebox could do a fabulous job with 1210.

    DTG don't make items which are just a repaint of a train which would not be seen in the country.
    You would be better asking an Australian Train Sim group if they do anything for the game - easy for them to repaint a UK or USA train and it would not cost anything

    Pilbara Iron would be awesome. Interesting fact: the longest ever recorded train in the world was in the Pilbara Iron area. I'd like to see some Australian modern diesels and also be able to load and unload the iron ore cars.

    Golden Rule - If you want to see your country's train then don't ask here.
    Better make it yourself.

    There is no reason why they shouldn't ask here, dovetail isn't the only dev that watches these threads for ideas and who knows you might get lucky. But this area is not just used for deciding what to make next it is used to gauge which specific types or what country specific content. Back about 2 years ago i think a friend of mine that knew someone at dovetail told me they had looked into an Australian route but there was so much red tape and legal hops to jump threw that it would be profitable or possible. Things could have changed by now and we can be hopeful to see one made.

    The deal about metra was that it included BNSF which for some reason will not allow licenses outside the U.S. and metra has the same policy as they used to be owned by then BN. This is also true for all BNSF owned company's or names, such as the santa fe. Here in the U.S. though they did get a license and both raton pass and the metra route have logos for me. I think if dovetail where to produce a Australian route this is what would have to happen. But i also know that dovetail dosn't like doing that, partnered developers will but dovetail itself usually avoids producing content that they can't get an international license for. But as i said mabey we can be hopeful that a developer will take this on.

    I’d love to see all trains across Australia. Qld rail, Nsw rail, etc.

    Some of the content in TS2019 was made by DTG and there is a good percentage that was made by other companies.

    As Australian routes are available in Trainz why not try to get the people who made those locos and routes to make something for TS2019?
    There are a few Chinese routes in TS2019 and these were made by an outside firm and just released thru Just Trains and later Steam.

    YES, I agree :) I know that this thread is quite old LOL! But I'm a new member :)

    I do have my own created MSTS models to go into TS2019, but I just don't understand what to do
    I have a few NSW freight wagons, 86 Class electric locomotive, hunter railcar, h set (oscar) and a few models that I've never released into MSTS due to MSTS not being able to work on Windows 10

    If anyone knows how to import my models into TS2019, I'm happy to give out the first Aussie stuff for this game
    all I need to know is how to setup the blue prints, sounds, cabviews "if it is possible to use 3rd party cabs" I'm not sure and then I can go from there and start sharing my models of course I need to fix up all my models since I'm not exactly good at making 3d models but I do know the basics of 3d modelling

    As for route building, in TS2019! It seems easy enough, however there are some issues regarding some styled points in TS2019! Long story! I will make a post and best explain later on!

    Regards, Phil "cityrail-rulez"

    Thanks for your response :) I have been a member of UK Train Sim for a long time! I do keep forgetting to check it out to see what I can find as for Railworks America I've downloaded the developer documents from that site the only good thing that I've learnt so far is the folder structure setup which is helpful and I've already setup the folder structure,as for everything else I've just got no idea what I'm doing ha ha ha!

    The developers documents are helpful to a certain limit for me! If only there was a full explanation regarding on creating the blueprints for everything that's pretty much where I am stuck at including part naming on my models and I have no clue if the parts need to be parented to the main object those sort of things

    HA HA HA Thanks for your suggestion! I already have the Blender exporter :) I can also export from 3D Crafter or 3ds Max 2019 :) :) So I have the utilities up and running ready to go :) :)
