I know I was initially screaming to the heavens that this route was unplayable on PS5 but after having some time to properly sink my teeth into the route I think I can safely say I just got unlucky with my first service. I've now played around 5 or 6 services in timetable mode and I've only had one crash. I get that's a very poor ratio but those services I've played that DID work have been probably the most fun I've had with this game. Running under cautionary signals, great express and commuter services, and SOOO much AI traffic make this route a fantastic experience. Yes, the framerate at Victoria is terrible but (and this is no excuse for DTG to not fix it), I think I've gotten used to it? I might just have a higher tolerance than most for this sort of thing. And in my experience playing on PS5 the majority of the route runs at a very smooth 60fps. Apart from Victoria the game only seems to chug in various parts of suburban London (key word being "parts", it's still 60fps a lot of the time). Everywhere south of around Purley honestly seems fine performance wise, save for brief drops at Gatwick Airport and Brighton. This route definitely needs a patch, but when it does get it (and it will), this route will be genuinely special. I think it already is, as I'm already having a great deal of fun with it. I know this is a U- turn from what I've been saying about the route recently, but those initial negative experiences really made me bitter and angry. I probably should have done more than just spawn in Victoria and then do ONE service before making my mind up.
