A joke explained is no longer a joke, unfortunately.
Very good work from Maik and his team.
That is gosh darn beautiful
I like how TSG is showing these In Production pics of the WIP Locos.
That is Maik's philosophy. So with early pics he can get early feedback about things that should be improved. So he and his team can solve possible issues early.
I think it's a very good development style.
Ludmilla is something we really need for german routes, I don't know what to say, jest piękny, it's beautiful! Keep up the good work, I would happily donate for the project before the loco is ready for release We need more 3:rd party developers like Maik.
That looks like one mighty powerful locomotive. Might be the most impressive locomotive in the whole game. :P
How big is this team actually, that they can work on 3 things at once?
Remember that all three won’t come out at once. DTG is able to work on LOTS of things at once with a team of just over 100.
The pictures look beautiful. I'm really looking forward to this locomotive.
At least 5 people are involved right now. Me, three 3d artists and a scenario creator. It will not be as fast as DTG can produce things. But my goal is not to be the fastest. I want do deliver good products. The early annoucement of them is because i can use the feedback to make them better. The Ludmilla is not right around the corner yet. But it is a complicated shape and so i want to have early feedback from potential customers. Generally they will be produced one after each other, not in parallel.
Thanks a lot Maik, that’s impressive. Congrats to you and your team. The little previews get me very excited and this development approach is great, being open to feedback early on, ensuring a quality product. Take your time and I’m very intrigued to see the final result.
Stoked to see from one of the comments earlier in this thread that the 101 is coming with IC coaches - Frankly I'm getting bored with Doppelstockwagens on everything!
Yes, another good philosophy.
Don't forget the Dash 8 and the Dash 9 and the SD 40-2.
Meh, everything in America is oversized. You don't really notice the size of these engines if everything around them is scaled up as well :P
- I guess the opposite is true, when everything is scaled down , you don’t really notice how small the locomotive really is ..... Best
A Ludi has basically the same size and same power as a SD 40-2. Only thing a 232 does not reach is the max TE on coupler with only 292Kn versus 410Kn. But the BR241 (called "Super Ludmilla") does have that TE and more horse power.
I think they are all impressive in their own way. Equal if it is the V300, the Dash 9 and so on. I love them all.
Personally and imo all modern american locos look and sound the same, at least the Ludi has style.
Careful, you don't want to start something with the American Heavy Freight enthusiasts.
I really like this approach, please keep it up, others could learn a lot from that. I for one prefer quality over quantity, so this is a good thing! I am really looking forward to see your locos in the game!
Not really. The BR143 and the BR155 also are from East german origin and very different from e.g. the BR146, BR185, BR182 , BR101
Yes, it IS a Soviet locomotive, they were literally produced in the Soviet Union is Luhansk in what now is Ukraine.
You forgot the DB BR 204, the former DR BR 114.
It called Locomotive Plant Lugansk, the former Woroschilowgrad.
And the BR 112 / DR 212 is also still to come with Hamburg – Lübeck. Another East Germany Loco.
Have been driving a few activities in Zusi 2 with this type of loco. Can any of our German friends confirm the Zusi sounds are authentic? If so and the developer can nail the audio, we are in for a real treat!
Not meant to cause offence, it's a personal opinion, now go back to the 40's and 50's then you can argue I'm talking codswallop.
It was often used for InterCity trains, especially after the Reunion of Germany. A Lot of Tracks in the GDR were not electrified, and there was no real opponent to the 232.
Hey, I would love to have some of those E- and F-class streamliners......
Does this have the Audio warning of Sifa Zugbremse found on BR 146.2 & BR 185 Main Spessart Bahn Aschaffenburg-Gemünden. Also the French TGV POS & TGV 2N2 if Dovetail games decides to do Strasbourg Kehl Karlsruhe route or Strasbourg Kehl Karlsruhe Mannheim Frankfurt Hbf route.
