    I did really it, hence the reply!

    And regarding time, if the conversation topic is still relevant there is no issue with an old post.

    Either way, nevermind.

    The part of my original post "without a backlash" was the part you either missed or ignored when replying. It was proven (when these cuts were announced) that there would be a backlash.

    Plus anyway, it isn't very relevant. The meißen branch is coming back, and I stopped being bothered ages ago. Still dissapointed but it didn't put me off (after a while).

    I really like the Airport Route, hopefully it will also get added soon

    I'd love to see the airport branch aswell, but it seems unlikely.


    DTG as a company in my mind aren't going to spend more (unpaid) time on this, and payable extensions aren't a thing, and might never become. DTG thus wouldn't be interested as a company in doing it I think.

    That doesn't mean noone at DTG is interested in doing it. I think many of the devs would've loved to build it. However expecting from them that they're going to make it as a pet project (a contractor did a lot of work on NEC-BP before DTG picked it up, as many know) also seems quite unfair as they have a lot of workload already. What makes this worse is that Dresden-Flughafen is an underground station, requiring more work than a normal one. And after that work they'd stil not have a guarantee DTG is willing to put in the final bits of work needed to actually put their hard work in game.


    So I'm not expecting it to ever come, I'm already happy with the Meißen branch being added :)

    We'll see maybe Dovetail games has something planned that we don't know ;)

    Perhaps, but if you expect nothing, you'll be happy either way ;)

    S2 to Flughafen Dresden Klotzsche we might be able to complete that route provided Dresden Bodenbach (Decin) Line gets added because S2 destination is actually Pirna S1 is Meißen to Schöna some actually terminate at Bad Schandau

    Matt, always LISTEN to the community about what they want. We NEED the Flughafen branch, otherwise we will be unhappy about the route, but not the Meissen Branch

    Maybe the Airport branch will still be a thing in the future, because the track for the Airport branch is there, it only needs to get improved

    If there are people in the community that know how to build routes, it might be easy to mod? But then I'm not one of those people

    I think most people seem to be happy with Meißen, considering this topic has lost most traction. Plus, the airport would require all the baking for the tunnels and the station to be done, and unlike Meißen, most of the scenery isn't there. And also, Meißen only happened because of Ed and Lukas, who did it themselves.

    There is only one tunnel, that is much shorter than all the tunnels in Rapit Transit
