Hello all, after the very unpleasant development of Train Sim World 3 content, I would like to announce that Dovetail Games has lost me as a loyal customer. The update policy is simply not acceptable, it never has been and probably never will be. In the meantime Train Sim World 3 really went a pleasant way, for example with the Rush Hour tracks. In my opinion, Dresden-Riesa and London Commuter were the highlights until then. After that, the same quality (which was not perfect at the time either, but acceptable) could not be maintained. This already started with Dresden-Chemnitz, where the timetable was pretty thinned out and a class 185 was again shipped without LZB functionality, and was then replaced by Spirit of Steam, where two steam locomotives bounced around as if they would derail at any moment. Yes, the steam locomotive physics were revised, but that too after just under 12 months. That's far too long a time, you can't keep a paying customer - like me - loyal like that. Between the release of Dresden - Chemnitz and the next appearing line in the area of Germany passed a longer time. For me this was a positive sign, as I had hoped that now finally the old routes would be updated to a current TSW status. This also took place, but was only visual in nature. Signals with wrong signal images were not fixed, which is very sad for a railroad simulation. Then Train Sim World 3 was announced, a lot of hype was built up. 186 km of track were promised. Mountains were visible in the background in the stream. So possibly it was Munich - Innsbruck? Wrong, such a route - with interesting scenery and exciting timetable - would not be feasible at DTG for 29,99€. Instead, they opted for a route that couldn't be more boring, namely Kassel-Würzburg. Just four different ICE train runs make the route less than entertaining. Yes, there are some scheduled runs with the ICE, but these only differ from the time, the rest works exactly the same. At night, the route is not much more interesting either. Thanks to dovetail games, the LZB still doesn't work remotely realistically. The partial block mode is completely missing. Signals can go dark if the next destination is a stop-indicating LZB block, but the signals light up again as soon as the full block is established until the next lit signal. Even if you are not in the LZB with the traction unit, darkened signals can whiz past you. The compact signals almost all show double instead of single red as entry signals in TSW. Some distant signals on the line are mirrored, i.e. not recognizable as distant signals according to German regulations. Sorry, but this is not possible at all. How can you increase the prices for such poor quality. Yes, inflation was high at the time, no question, but that does not justify a deterioration in quality. Subsequently, Bremen-Oldenburg and the Left Rhine route were published, at an interval that was worrying. The quality was shitty, similar to the Kassel-Würzburg high-speed line. The scenery looks like nothing, especially on the Linke Rheinstrecke many optics are missing at the signals. The New York-Trenton route added to my opinion. I didn't buy it because it was already visible in various videos - sponsored by DTG - how poorly and meagerly the route is designed. Not even a nearly complete timetable was included. But many other smart people have already given their opinion. In summary, TSW has not developed further from a railway perspective since the Rush Hour package. New graphics are all well and good, but it would make more sense to concentrate on the foundation first, namely the railway. Dovetail Games, it has been a nice time with your products in parts, but for the most part a very exhausting one. You are welcome to make an effort with quality products, maybe I will change my mind then. But if things keep going the way they are, you'll be rid of me for good, and my wallet will be happy, considering how overpriced the DLCs are all together and how little fun you get for the money. I'm over and out with this, take care, and to the DTG fanboys: you don't have to comment on everything, if you don't like my opinion, there's also the option to just keep scrolling Many greetings from Germany.
