    In this next Q&A session we'll be answering questions on the ICE Köln - Aachen route.

    We'll also be talking about longer routes and providing more detail on the Scenario Planner.

    If you have questions you'd like answering on these topics please ask them below. We don't guarantee to answer every question, but we'll get through as many as we can.

    Hi.

    Are there any other locomotives available on this route as well as the ICE? Also will we be able to “zoom” in on the drivers view on console as per the PC version (presume this is an option with keyboard atm) but will this be a game pad option in TSW2?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    If there is a victory to the "make every route a 400 mile adventure" crowd I would hope that even in timetable mode that there was some threat/potential issue that would keep us on our toes. As I have commented before GWE and the Reading-Pad can get quite boring at 125, as literally nothing happens until you reach the speed markers coming in to Reading.

    All I would ask has some jeopardy potentially being thought about to make sure its not too much of a snoozefest?

    Thanks

    Dave

    p.s please make something in Cornwall :)

    Will there be any sort of freight operations running alongside the HSTs?

    Doubtful the DB204 will make an appearance, but I hope there will at least some kind of goods services too.

    Will you make pzb more understandable for new players to the game maybe like detailed tutorials would be really great to help new people to the game and be in a sense educational for people to understand how to use it and understand at least the basics to signalling or maybe make a video yourselfs on YouTube explaining how to use it even

    Route:
    Will services with double traction consists (2×8 cars) of the ICE 3 be included?
    Are there plans for a higher variety of the rolling stock used?
    Can we use the rolling stock of upcoming route DLCs here?

    Scenario planner:
    Are there any enhancement plans for furthermore features (like the placement of static consists)?
    Will we be able to use any track/platform as departure/ stopping points or are they preselected as the consists as well?
    Will we be able to save presets of different scenario 'plans'?

    So much for now, work is calling, maybe I've got some more later :)

    Hi

    Route Question

    How is the load-in for AI traffic handled on this route? The nearest TSW route would probably be GWE and the stuttering upon AI load-ins (esp on console) was a bit rough

    Questiona for the scenario planner.

    Are scenarios shareable and/or can they be saved locally for future use?

    Can scenarios that we create be saved and then resumed at a later time?

    Will face coverings be mandatory for passenger modes ;-)?

    Thanks

    Will there be an option to just be able to buy the core game system and a route you want rather than having them all?

    Hi

    Will the scenario planner work on the preserved collection or just on tsw2 content?

    1)Will TSW2 allow you too sit down on the chairs in pictures the passengers can.2)Can you couple another ICE 3 too your existing loco in the scenario planner?3)Will we get longer routes like SPG that go 57 miles.4)A long with longer routes will we get 2 trains with 1 route.5)Will we get a picture of the features that will be coming too TSW2. 6)Do we get pictures of the scenario planner or a video of it in action.7)Can you disable SPAD which because no one wants too restart when they do a scenario for a long time

    Will most existing DB stock act as AI trains? If you purchased them in TSW 1 of course.

    Station announcements?
    Can LZB be used on other pre-existing locos, not just the ICE?

    Note - I now have more than enough questions for tomorrow's stream. Thank you to those who contributed. Some of them will be combined to cover detail in slightly less granular detail than you've asked, not to be evasive, but to try and give the most information that will be of interest to the widest audience.

    If anything important (and on topic) is missed please ping me after the Q&A.
