This probably sounds like another rant thread, but I’d like to share my personal thoughts and opinions on TSW. Personally, I don't think this game really does cater for all as DTG like to say it does. Why you ask? It’s barely a simulation seeing as so many things are still missing from it. - There’s no wheel-slip. I could go full throttle whilst it’s raining and the will be no difference in acceleration - There’s no variable adhesion - This links to my first point - No neutral sections - Does DTG even know what this is? - No cold starts at the start of service These are just a few quite important things missing from the game. Instead they add gimmicks like medals, scores and mastery. Which I’d like to add, did anyone actually ask for these things? Like seriously? So when DTG get annoyed at people for calling it an arcade game, just look above at the points above I listed. That’s exactly why it’s referred to as an arcade game. There’s no skill or variation in driving. Every weather setting results on the same amount of adhesion, which gets repetitive and boring, fast. How DTG can help to cater for ALL players depending on experience. They need to add easy and advanced driving controls so it is suitable for all players. How many times have we seen someone say “how do I get X train to work?” I really don’t think the interactive tutorials are anywhere close to providing a first timer with the confidence and knowledge of how to drive and operate a train. All this could be avoided if they provided the player with difficulty options as well as a proper manual, instead of a five minute interactive tutorial, which barely covers the basics. A manual you can view right in front of you, whilst driving a service. It also allows you to look for a specific issue you need help with. Did I think TSW would be a lot more advanced three years ago, when first launched? Absolutely. When first launched, I had a lot of motivation and hype in this brand new simulator. Three years later, we are still missing a lot of core simulation features. My expectations have since lowered significantly and I expect nothing more than mediocre DLC and short routes. I welcome all comments, whether you agree or disagree. So feel free to comment your thoughts below.
