    A little(ish) wish list I hope you can get round to fulfilling.

    New Trains/Routes
    1. An extension to Great Western Express from Reading to Bristol Temple Meads, including full electrification of the line to enable point 2 (below).
    2. The addition of the Class 800/802 and 387 train sets on Great Western Express.
    3. Extension of East Coastway to include Hastings.
    4. London to Brighton Main Line.
    5. Merseyrail Wirral & Northern Lines with Class 507/508 and 777 train sets.
    6. West Coast Main Line with Avanti West Coast Class 390 Pendolino and NEW Hitachi AT300.
    7. New York City Subway ‘7’ train.
    8. NYC Subway train services (hopefully all of them).
    9. Liverpool to Manchester electrified line.
    10. London Underground Lines (hopefully all of them).
    11. East Coast Main Line.

    Game fixes/Improvements
    1. More passengers on trains.
    2. More train traffic, particularly at peak times. The lines feel lonely sometimes.
    3. No passengers on out of service trains.
    4. Larger text size on objective marker.
    5. Station/Train announcements.
    6. Station names/locations identified on the map to help with route learning.
    7. Allowing low/high horn function on PS4 controller.
    8. Better lighting at night. Some routes are very dark.
    9. More scenarios.
    I really hope I can tick most of these suggestions/proposals off my list soon!

    I would like features/trains like these to come to TSW, they’ll make the game a lot better. I would also like to add animated rr crossings to the list of feature additions.

    That doesn’t stop me wanting the M9 at some point. It is the latest LIRR train after all.

    Wwwooohhh most of the routes you mentioned are over 100 miles long, I dont think all these routes will happen. If I had to say something I like about your suggestions it would have to be London Underground although you want get all the lines in one go.

    It is definitely wishful thinking, but if enough of us suggest it, you never know.

    Also the m9 was made to replace all m3 trains on the long island railroad.

    But all three trains are currently in operation and that doesn’t stop them from adding the train to the game.

    Why not? If people want it and are prepared to pay for it. It probably won’t be that time consuming to make for £12 a sale.

    You can still simulate it.

    When you select the M9, no M3’s appear on the line. But when you select an M3, the M3, M7 and M9 appear.

    I don’t know why you are so angry. Your post is bordering on aggression.

    It’s a game!

    Having to select the M3/M9 and not having the other appear would be a challenge.
    I'm not bordering aggression if I was you would know.
    No it's not a game it's a simulator, deal with the facts.

    It wouldn’t be that much of a challenge, you simply programme the game accordingly. And Simulator or no, it’s still a game.

    You clearly know the inner workings of DTG. And your passive aggression remains with the multiple exclamation points etc. You might want to lighten up a little bit.

    TrainSim_Fan, please calm your tone. If you disagree with another user feel free to voice that disagreement rationally then move on. Nobody is going to convince anyone else that they're wrong - this is the internet, that's not how it works.

    The point of this forum is for people to be able to submit their suggestions, whether sensible, realistic or not. We'll decide what is and is not viable for consideration.

    I'm leaving this open, but let's get back on topic please.

    I know I go on alot of posts defending the LIRR cuz I'm from NY and ride the LIRR and wished a better DLC with the port Washington and at least either the full Ronkonkoma or Huntington route(which the game mistakes it as Ronkonkoma but branches off to Huntington side)..but to me other DLCs are too short...I like the ECW one as well and they at least shouldve included areas past Lewes or also Hastings or Ore.Other than that to me other DLCs that are out shouldve had longer routes as well especially the german routes looking at the RRO and HRR!!what I would say is should it been 40-45 miles at least, I say yes(Peninsula Corridor..I just want at least a quality type route..I'm sorry I'm jus not a fan of these 20 mile routes and YES its told it takes time, but also these dlcs need better detailing especially the timetables of services cuz operating the LIRR one so many horrible services to name, and then the RRO one of the services crash and all ugh...so again sorry to post this long, I jus want at least 40 mile type routes as a start as well as additional services in the game not every 3 mins NOOOOO lol cuz look at the HRR..u have oh lawd, lotsssss of service to operate

    A little question for you, when was the last time we got a full route?????
    Answer : WSR was the last full route we had, because DTG are to lazy to make full routes.

    Tip : Dont buy the M3 trust me it's not worth it.
    Yeah, a lot of scenarios in TSW are quite boring, especially the CN route scenarios, theres no real variation in them. Some of the ECW scenarios are ok, loose connection wasn't to bad. I get that the scenarios are meant to be different from the normal line running but there not realistic and well that's the whole point of simulator. Just a heads up for you by the way (in case you dont watch the streams) theres no stream tomorrow or Wednesday due to the announcement. Another side note I found an interesting service for you on ECW it's the 4:59 unlike all the other services the train runs fast to Eastbourne/Ore. Anyways, have a nice day.:)

    Really looking forward to the announcement tomorrow. Any ideas what it might be?

    I bought and quite like the M3. But it’s not hugely different to the M7 control wise and eerily quiet.

    Thanks for the fast run tip for ECW. I do like a fast run.

    I think the announcement will be TSW2021, along with a route the colours resemble the NSE livery so an NSE route seems likely to me. Glad you enjoyed the service because I know I did. What do you think the announcement will be?

    I’ve no idea to be honest. I only found TSW very recently but fell in love with it pretty much straightaway. Hopefully something on my wish list, but that is just wishful thinking.

    I think it could be something to do with lirr maybe Hicksville to Port Jefferson and Woodside to Port Washington.

    Ohh trust I wasnt buying it anyway, I shouldnt have said "yet" but looked through vids on youtube, not a good job on the M3 plus its jus another option for existing service and yea few m3 scenarios but they ain't even all that...that Ferrying Folks(which those trains dont even USE Long Island City in real life) is more of a reverse scenario of Change at Jamaica smfh!!

    They probably called it TSW2 so they could get away with it being a new game and get some extra cash from it.

    Admittedly Sam is trying to familiarize himself with the forums. So I'll give it another week, before we start seeing some proper communication (I'm talking like daily updates).

    I can tell someone wants a discount for TSW2. It's called an opinion, your comment was not needed and should seise. If I want to share my opinion I will. If was able to argue I would, but Sam's told me not to so I wont for now. Note : I dont want your comment on anything that's opinion based, considering you seem to sympathise with DTG even though there was a bug on the announcement page screen.

    Edit : TallBoy feel free to respond seeing as we were having a conversation.
