    As someone who has been waiting since the launch of this game, we as a community has learned to completely accept that fact the editor may not come. So you should join us in believing the editor won't come so you don't have to drive yourself insane waiting for it.

    Probably filed in a cabinet somewhere under 'F' for Forget or under 'V' for Vaporware

    PP:
    Alexa... Where is the Editor...?
    Alexa: There are three Eat It Here restaurants within ten miles of your current location, but they are all closed due to....... Co-Ro..... Nah-Vi-rus..... Pan-Demic.

    PP: No - the Editor, for Train Sim World, when will we get to see the Editor...?
    Alexa: You have no future appointments with Eddie Torre, would you like me to request a mee-ting?

    PP: No. I was asking about the promised Editor tool in Train Sim World.
    Alexa: You would not like me to arrange a meeting with Eddie Torre - is that correct?

    PP: Alexa - I am asking the questions. Now tell me.... Is The Editor To Go Online This Year...?
    Alexa: There is currently no news about..... The Editor. Would you like to hear some music to help you cope with your disappointment?

    Yes! In fact, it's supposed to be out just a couple months out from 3 years ago!

    Just make sure to keep an eye out for more news, because I'm *sure* we'll get that soon... right?

    (Note: sarcasm is present in this post)

    They'll just keep stringing us on for a couple more years, until they finally make an announcement, that it's cancelled. Probably.

    The Track Path Editor for Gran Turismo 6 came two years after release. Even the most talented developers have to take their time.

    Unfortunately the Dovetail, an editor doesn't involve making a tablet app, a server for track files and making entirely new code for the mode on the game, or making a function that converts where you drive in the real world to a track playable in the game.*

    *I believe this was a feature in GT6.

    Sort of - I think there was a Track Editor, where you design your tracks by hand (as you would normally expect), called Track Path Editor:

    https://www.gran-turismo.com/us/gt6/manual/#!/coursemaker/application01

    And there was a GPS visualiser, which took GPS data from your mobile phone, as you drove around a real track in a real car, which you could upload to GT6, and then "visualise" in GT6, if that real track existed as one of the tracks-in game.

    Ahhhhhh.

    Remember when a lot of people ripped into Digital Draftsman when he made the sound argument that we’d never see a public editor for this game?

    I reckon the odds are now 60/40 against it ever making an appearance.

    I think that the odds are more like 95/5.

    Maybe they should first fix the editor in Train Simulator.....? The workshop tab... the 32/64 bit issue.... The Out Of Memory issue.... etc. Why would you want to bring all of those sorts of issues to TSW....?

    Also - there's the general asset management issues - you know, maybe first make some attempt to not wipe out five DLCs when you switch off the lights in the bathroom.... etc....?

    Honestly, when you look at the way Unreal Engine 4 works and how the licensing works, it's kinda unlikely you'll see an editor, at least not to the level that Train Simulator has.

    I know I'm heading far off-topic now, but I remember that there was a system where you could hire a Toyota GT86 and drive around Fuji Speedway, and the data could be imported into GT6 and watched as a replay (and you may have been able to use the Data Logger on it as well).

    Rather like TSW's editor will have, GT6's had very big cuts made to it before release.

    Funny wording in the thread title. It's like asking are we expecting Santa Clause to wear an outfit other than red this year? We expect the same as what has been dealt to us previously... nothing. That doesn't mean DTG won't surprise us and release it but I don't think anyone on this forum will be expecting it to come out this year.
