    Hi all, I just published updated versions of the TSW Starters Guide and TSW Tools. here:

    https://www.hollandhiking.nl/trainsimulator/index.php
    This is the home page, please select the link to the downloads there.

    TSW Starters Guide is additional to the official game manuals. In this version I removed route specific information and extended the general information. I will create separate Route Guides in near future for you.

    TSWTools is a Toolkit with supporting functions for TSW Users. It is still very alpha state, but I took great care to avoid possibilities of damage.

    Features (version 0.5):

    - Configure all your game settings, including advanced settings
    - Backup of saved game data
    - Manage your downloaded livery .pak files and install them in game
    - Support for livery sets, create a set and install it during game launch
    - Installer for .pak files to install them from zip, 7z and rar archives directly
    - A game launcher, which allows to select settings easily.
    - Unpack and view game files
    - Screenshot viewer/manager
    - Viewer for default key bindings
    - Viewer for manuals

    Please be aware that virus scanners may complain the first few days. They don't like anything new.

    Your work is always fantastic and generous. A very complete guide full of information that helps the beginner and guides the habitual player.

    Thanks you.

    Thanks for taking the time to make an easy and intuitive way of customising TSW. Also thanks for the unpacker, making it a little bit easier to do might encourage a few more mods, although unfortunately we're still at DTG's whim for anything more advanced.

    Thank you. I just discovered the Livery manager is not working properly (from my development environment it works fine, but it closes TSWTools in producytion). I will need to find out what goes wrong ... Coming soon...

    I published a small update (v0.31 only installer update). There was an error in the installer. This is fixed now. The bug makes TSWTools crash if you open the Livery Manager.

    Hello and thank you very much for your tools, I am creator of (skin) for games like Euro Trucks Simulator 2, Farming Simulator, American Trucks Simulator, Fernbus etc. so on the game TSW I will have great needs of tools to continue to create textures for liveries etc .. and to understand the system of extension PAK which for now is totally unknown to me.. :)

    I update TSWTools to version 0.5. Some bugs are fixed and I implemented a technical change to make TSWTools behave better on smaller screens.

    This sounds great! But I'm having trouble finding the TSWtools manual it keeps mentioning. I'm probably just blind, but where the heck is it?

    Thank you for your feedback! See the screenprint below: at the right side you see buttons to what you need. When you first try to use TSWTools, it will ask you to set some locations and additional files. Once you have done so, you should see this screen:

    TSWTools front.jpg
    At the right side you see Help, just below it a button that will open the manual, provided you have installed some pdf reading tool. Let me know if this is working for you! May I should include some quick guide to get you started.

    NB Route Guides will be empty initially. Once you placed your guides, e.g. manuals, timetables and whatever you have here, you have a nice and easy access to all documentation.

    This thread is about a third party tool for PC rather than something built into the game.

    No, it will not run on consoles, only PC.
