    Totally behind this - easy, relatively small addon, would add a lot of depth to the TSW catalog of electric routes.

    That's What i was thinking if it would possible be to add to an update.Relatively small realistic feature with a noticeable change

    DTG should improve the lighting effects during night. Lighting effects are better for early morning and sunset but when we drive at night it becomes dead dark even when the train is at some station..They need to fix it urgently...

    Catenary sparks have been visible in TS for several years; their absence does seem odd in TSW.

    Definitly adding this feature will add realism to the LIRR railroad and this can be added to if dovetails ever does a dlc based on the PATH Train or MTA New York Subway System.

    While we’re at it, can we make the HST do a cold start up in the winter? :cool:



    (didn’t mean to undermine this thread but thought some of you might find this interesting- not my video so credit goes to the video owner)

    DGT shut up and take my money! I am all for this 100%. The demo videos got me really excited. If you want donations just say we'll gladly give you some money if its not an easy task. Youve come far with TSW. It's gonna be great

    The sparks can get very bad LOL

    Yeah sparks would be pretty cool especially with the section breaks like on the London line.

    The last I heard is that it’s possible, however they need an artist to design it to make sure it looks good and appropriate.

    I’d say this was an essential necessity for realism and immersion.

    Yeah they mentioned that the tech for this is done (as TSW 2 was published), but due to a lack of some kind of artistic designs this has not been implemented yet. But that's now months ago and DTG Protagonist wanted to talk to Matt about that and ask what happened to that. We're curious.
