DB BR 145 or 146 ?
145 is for Cargo,so it is 146
Nice to see a new route in the pipeline.
If that destination sign is anything to go by, this could be an exciting addition to the game! Having a working system for the signs (finally!) is exactly the kind of progress that brings this simulation a little bit closer to reality.
new dlc? what about the bugs we are talking about for months in base game! proves only that it is the money which counts... rediculous!
They usually release patches at the same time as they release routes, so there may be a patch released at the same time.
The Transpennine route had working signs on the DMU (on PC anyway) so don't be getting any hopes up for P.I.S. because it wasn't in TPE but it's a good (excuse the pun) sign that possible progress is being made for a full P.I.S.
Oh, thanks for the info, I haven't gotten around to try NTP yet. A full P. I. S. would certainly do a lot for the immersion. I'm really having my fingers crossed that progress is being made on that, whether it makes it into this DLC or not.
What is PIS??!
A Passenger Information System, the signs at the train station showing when the next train arrives, its destination and such.
And super sim is this!
Drink plenty, and you'll find out...
Well the PSI been in GWE also?
At this time all we have are the Screenshots for the new route which seem to include some kind of PIS.
There isnt any offical statement yet if this is a full featured PIS (Trains and Station boards) or some kind of displays on the train only. Also there isnt any statement if this will only be available in the new DLC or added to all the rest aswell.
I guess it won't happen right away, but if I were DTG I would definitely consider adding the P.I.S. to the older routes, especially the ones included in the base game to start with; GWE, RT and NEC. It makes sense from a business perspective as well, since every new customer will play those routes. If they are abandoned, how is a new customer supposed to know that the game has awesome features hidden away in a random german DLC?
Oh well, who knows what DTG is thinking. One can only hope.
Ah ok thanks for that
Yeah, they have stated somewhere that they definitely want to add those features backwards for all routes. However they havent said anything about the new features and just posted the article about the DLC what Locos, Rollingstock and so on is included. So i´m a bit careful about what exactly we can expect.
They could test how it works in the wild with this DLC first and then add it to existing routes at a later date when they fixed some possible issues with it or similar.
I guess we will find out when the DLC and a possible Patch drops on the 21nd on PC
P.I.S. on train signs (well, the DMU) was a feature in the Transpennine Route but they did not add it to the older GWE route for the 166's so I doubt they would now. I will of course eat my hat, running naked down the street if they do with this forthcoming release!
Oh, and if full PIS was implemented then I'd do a merry dance whilst eating said hat, making my way down said street!
Thankfully for the public at large all DTG have said is that they are looking at backporting that feature to previous DLC rather than committing to do so at this release.
