    Got a question for Skyhook? They will be joining us for our first preview livestream, at 7pm UTC on Railfan TV next week!

    If you have any questions about the route or loco, or any suggestions for things you'd like to see us demonstrate during the preview, let us know in this thread and we'll try to cover as much as we can during the stream.

    What made you do this route ?

    what have the hardest challenges been to build this route ?

    Do you plan to build routes in the UK next ?

    Why this route out of all the other routes like Donner Pass, Sherman Hill, and/or the GN's Rocky mountain route with the Mofiat tunnel?

    How long has it taken to build this route? I see that some of the screenshots use the old TSW logo.

    Trains run infrequently on this line. How does that affect the gameplay? Will it be like Clinchfield?

    Does Skyhook plan to continue building routes?

    Has DTG availed the "dynamic weather" tech to the Skyhook team? What is the weather like anyway?

    How much of the world are you able to traverse on foot? The scenery is primarily walkable extensive land.
    [​IMG]

    Are there any birds?

    There are cars in the screenshot. Are there people to go with them?

    Has this tunnel been light baked now?
    [​IMG]

    Given that the route is freight oriented, what are the spawn locations and how many are there?

    Is there any road traffic?

    Only got two (ok, four);
    1. How the Locomotives are made? (from the CSX Versions or built from scratch)
    2. Why only the ribbed sided Cover Hopper as the new rolling stock model?
    3. What's the number range on the AC4400CW and the SD40?
    4. And why so many scenarios for this Branch Line?

    are the locos available for use on other routes? and is the GP38-2 from Peninsula available in timetable?
    also do you have plans for routes after Rush hour?

    Will there be different liveries for the locos? Is the winter season available for Cane Creek? Is there a chance for getting an EMD SD70M dlc for that route in the future? How many employees from Skyhook worked on Cane Creek? Do you are planning further route dlc's for TSW2?

    -What was the reason to replace the tailing train special spine cars and containers with the hopper cars from Peninsula Corridor, was it a gameplay reason or another issue?

    -Could the GP40-2 be brought back as a DLC locomotive for this route in the future?

    -Any reason why the model of Union Pacific AC4400CWs, are the ones with the number boards on the nose, and not the model with them above the cab? (Like that variation that will come with Tehachapi on TS1)

    I‘d like to get a good look at the loco liveries to see their final form.

    What does the service mode look like? How many services? How long? etc.

    Finally, repeating what others have mentioned:
    Does the AC44 dynamic brake work correctly?
    Does the banking comm work in both the AC44 and the SD40-2?

    I'm not much of a question asker, but this is Cane Creek we're talking about!

    Do the SD40-2 and AC4400CW have different services in the timetable, or do they share the same services?
    Why did you decide to use the open-top hoppers for the dirt train, instead of using container cars?
    What changes did you make between the CSX and Union Pacific variants of the SD40-2 and AC4400CW?
    Are there working railroad crossings?

    Does this route have working positive train control or not?
    Are all the locomotives built from the ground up or reskinned from their CSX versions or not?

    How have they approached scenery to ensure it looks great without looking barron?
    How many locos, services will this have?
    Why this route?
    How will they address feedback on forum about some of the rolling stock appearing incorrect?
    What variety will there be in the services?
    How many scenarios?
    Dynamic weather?
    Route length?
    What does this offer which Sand Patch or Clinchfield does not?
    Maximum consist weight, length you can pull?
    Will this route have moving scenery?

    Are the or will the font/company name placement issues on the SD40-2 be fixed before release. Number font is incorrect, company name is too high and overlaps stripe.

    One more thing to add

    Was there ever any plans to have the mainline go as far west as Green River, or was the small section between Brendel and Thompson Springs the only part of the mainline planned from the routes beginning?

    - why didn't you do correct uranium tailings containers?
    -working RR gate crossings?
    -why did you remove the weathering on the AC4400CW
    -will the covered hoppers have decals on them? (Been blank in all screenshots).
    -Have the sounds of locomotives, freight, horns, etc been re-done?
    -will any freight cars from other North American routes be thrown in to timetables, like OSD does with SPG freight?
    -will the exterior camera be available while going through tunnels? If yes, will it work? Unlike clinchfeild still not working.
    -what will be the most freight cars you can haul?

    Do you have any plans for expansion packs to the route in the future? (Rio Grande heritage pack, possibly other Union Pacific locos, etc.)
    Are there any other industries on the line other than potash and uranium tailings?
    Will the Union Pacific GP38-2 from Peninsula Corridor be used on the route?
    What was the most challenging thing to make when designing the route?
    Does the route have any interesting landmarks that have been replicated in-game?
    How busy is the route in TSW? Will you have to worry about other traffic on the route during runs?

    Has any of the article feedback been taken into consideration/applied?

    Although I guess we will see if that's the case during the stream, we've had very little interaction from the Skyhook side once the locos and freight cars appeared and were... not ideal. There have been some little changes seen, but there's still a lot that should be done to make the rolling stock fitting.

    I guess one more question would suffice. And that is:
    • Why did you make this route in the first place?
    Well, that's all my questions done. See you Thursday :)

    I assume this is referring to the livery issues that have been pointed out on these forums, but would like to hear someone at Skyhook confirm this as it would show that have in fact been monitoring the feedback here, even if they haven't responded directly.

    Were you able to get unique sound from Union Pacific or is it the same audio file that Dovetail has for Sand Patch. What made Skyhook decide this route with the AC4400 and SD40?

    Where the dirt trains done wrong for the purposes of gameplay? Seems with as much work as has gone into this route, its weird to use the wrong kind of cars, although I can understand if it wad to add loading.

    It is mentioned covered hopper it have open hatches above.
    So there will be a simulated loading process for them?
    In the case of open hoppers, there will be a loading simulation process too, like the coal one for Sand Patch Grade?

    Both locomotive cabs, will be like the real UP ones, or will be exactly the same as CSX?

    I think they meant the SD40 from Clinchfield, as opposed to the SD40-2 that is included in this.
