as above. enjoy the game.
So far so good, I'm particularly exited to give the 363 a go!
Downloading now. 6.1 Gb, in case anyone is reading this away from home.
Anyone else having issues with the BR146 not really releasing its brakes as it used to do? Mine gets stuck at 3 bar for a few seconds.
Man. This is like Christmas in September. Woot!!!
Yes. I reported the same “issue” in the PlayStation route discussion yesterday. Others advised me that this is an intended feature as most of the locos have been completely revamped (including more realistic brake systems). The “old” MSB 146 still has the more responsive (and presumably less realistic) brakes.
On another note - since a lot of you PC players probably have access to some sort of map boundary removal mod - can someone please visit and share these locations:
- The yard and station to the left of Dresden Hauptbahnhof. For some reason, you aren’t able to spawn there on foot, and I don’t know if it’s included in any services/scenarios. The station is also on the very edge of the map, would be very interesting to see if any traces of it are actually there.
- Meißen branch. We all know it’s coming! Wonder if any parts of it (for example the tracks) are already in the game right now.
- Dresden Flughafen branch. This one isn’t arriving anytime soon, but I wonder if they ever really worked on it. Maybe something is waiting for us at the edge of the map?
Thanks in advance!
A few observations: for Rail Driver users the speed control is the independent brake lever and the power control is the toggle switch in the lower right. It is a hog on my system which is an i9 9900 with nVidia GeoForce 3070. Have noted FPS 50 -70 v 90 - 120 on older routes like CRR as well as increaed stuttering. Running the BR 145 tutorial I got caught twice for over speed when the speed set did not hold the train to the set point. Realized that like other routes with speed control, do not run the throttle/power set to 100%. From my point as an American it seems to look good, though I can't compare it to the real thing. Initially, I used the Journey to move forward and it through me into a BR 145 without doing the tutorial first and try as I would, could not get it to start moving. Note to DTG: give the tutorial for a locomotive before putting someone into it to run a scenario.
Downloading for me looking forward to the route
Could you point me to that topic? I would understand if the brakes would release slower, but I don't understand why it gets stuck at a specific treshold (in this case 3 bar), and then after a few seconds suddenly release pretty quickly.
Is it normal the 143 slows down quite a bit while coasting? I'm currently going down a 0.5% grade, but while coasting (no throttle, no brakes) it slows down.
Additionally the 143 no longer seems to be able to fully achieve the speed selected, not even on a flat 0.0%. Is that realistic behaviour?
Sure! Here you go, starts around comment #6:
Someone also mentioned it in the Tech Reports section. Comment #7 here:
br 185 has a electrical whine which is pretty irritating... in main spessart bahn no such whine on the electric locomotives.
S1 route w/ br143. spawn error
It was wrong before though. How long does it take to release the brakes from full service?
