    I noticed on tonight’s PS4 stream from the London road depot there was no Shard (see below). It was on the pc version last week. Unless I’m looking in the wrong place?

    Is Wembley Stadium also missing? I didn’t see it during tonight’s stream

    it looks again as though on the PS4 we miss out again on routes not being modled correctly. No shard, hardly any passengers. as tin tin said it was all there on the PC. why pay full price when its not moddled right. i have been saying for example dunster castle was missing on WSR top tourist attraction on that route also the steam shed was missing at bishops lydeard. one other thing to mention was the C.I.S building missing on NTP in Manchester

    So we have to pretend it’s in the height of lockdown for the passengers and pretend it’s before 2008 because there’s no Shard. I wonder if we’re still pretending it’s the middle of the world’s driest drought in Peninsular Corridor’s Bay Area ????

    I hadn't realised scenery was missing from routes I've purchased in TSW 2020 such as those highlighted by Dave above. That's a bit galling to potentially pay the same or a higher price for DLC on consoles (more frequently discounted on Steam), and to have bits missing!

    I noticed the Shard in the first stream and was looking forward to having that as a landmark.

    This coupled with the seemingly poor performance on the PS4 Pro stream earlier has made my mind up I think.

    I could have sworn they said on stream that there wasn't going to be any major differences between PC and console versions, apart from stuff like resolution. Having the Shard missing is a pretty major difference in my opinion...

    I look at it another way, I havent had to spend £1K or so on a decent pc to run the game and I already have a ps4 so if I spend £300 on the game and DLC I am fairly satisfied with the quality (improvements in passengers is a big thing for me though)

    The Shard is missing on Xbox too, and passenger numbers are far inferior to what was on the PC stream.

    Given that DTG stated the only differences were resolution related, this is quite disappointing.

    These are disappointing facts to learn. I haven’t played it yet, I’m downloading it now on my PS4 Pro.

    In fairness, they've also clearly said at least a couple times on the streams that the draw distance on console is reduced when compared to the PC. Maybe the Shard was too far away?

    I thought though after they baked in the San Francisco skyline (which is pretty impressive I might add) that in future releases the same could be done for other key landmarks. Can anyone confirm Wembley is there on console?

    Wembley Stadium is shown in the startup clip on the consoles but I haven't played the Bakerloo Line yet to check.

    Matt mentioned on the PZB stream that Wembley Stadium and the Shard are there but it's just that they are outside of the draw distance and they know about that and are looking at it DTG Protagonist one for the future roadmap update?

    I am disappointed in Sand Patch Grade. Matt said they had spent a lot of time and effort improving distant trees. On PS4 (not pro) there are just a lot of coloured blobs.

    Just played the preserved ECW. Damn, this should be the new game, not Bakerloo or the german fast route. What happened? ECW was published at the end on 2019 and it was a big big improvement for console users: great performances, huge draw distance, beautiful landscapes, better textures. TSW 2 is a big step back in everything. I will live without Wembley or the Shard, but fix that damn freezing.

    well not surprised if they look like a blob as sandpatch is already a performance killer for some PC's i think matt was more talking about it as sense for PC users who have already played the route. In a whole the performance of the xbox and PS4 will never be great it's seven years of unchanged specs and where a game is trying to strive for more performance and train lengths and routes you need more powerful hardware. that's why i tell people not to get there hopes up about Microsoft flight simulator for the current gen of consoles as i doubt they will be able to run it and it will be something only for the x series.

    The trees on the hillsides flash in some places on my PS4

    Same here, however, I am impressed by how much foliage they've managed tbh, and think they are a massive improvement over the barren, alien planet looking hills of Penninsula corridor... Currently playing SPG now... Taken 2 hours to get anywhere close to the summit as I stalled like a rookie...

    Yeah Sand Patch really does have that remote U.S feel to it. I haven't been as bothered about the U.S Freight stuff before now. This really feels like you are doing an important job

    The fact that there's no traffic on the WCML and hardly any passengers is quite disappointing, as soon as I did my first service it felt incredibly lifeless.
    They've got 377s from East Coastway, they've got 66s from GWE and east Coastway, how hard can it be to stick some AI traffic between wembley and Harrow... Both of which are commonly seen on this line ?
    You wouldn't go past willesden and wembley and see completely dead and empty yards,

    Sand patch is definately the best. Plenty of life. Lots of cars on the roads, houses, beautiful scenery, I love it despite struggling up the gradients
