    Question for stream: Which livery will be the DB BR 363? Is it the Bundesbahn Blue-beige as stated 2 roadmaps ago or is it just the normal red "DB livery" which is on the roadmap since the last one? And if that has really been changed to the DB red, why is this the case and why was this change not communicated when it happend? I remember Matt talking about the blue beige livery a few weeks ago, saying that minor changes have been made to the original 363, so I thought this is fixed.

    Since we won't be able to drive down the branch lines on Riesa-Dresden, will those services be turned into AI only trains?

    Gradients!
    So finally playable scenarios where it's not red light at the start and no way to play?
    In planning? Weren't these two actively worked on? How are they all the way down there?

    Questions which would be nice to get answered during the stream:
    - Is there a plan to include more external hardware. In particular, with the implementation of TrackIR, will other systems such as TobiiEye be supported as well?
    - When will the newly introduced bugs by the update to the new engine get addressed (in particular audio issues on the German trains, buttons not working properly, the symbols on the MFD such as the door-opened indicator no longer functioning)?

    Can only second that!!
    I was wondering the same. But then, the version released on Epic weeks ago was (and probably always has been) the final version of SKA and Bakerloo without the passengers, so it seems to not have been a last minute "Oh we missed that" as suggested earlier...

    Questions for stream:
    1. What about cut branches in Dresden-Riesa route? Are you going to add them in the foreseeable future?
    2. Scenario "Marching in", Boston sprinter. Speed restriction (ACSES/ATC) in the yard after train consist is 0. Is it bug or feature?

    This would be awesome, yes! RRO really would benefit from that. And I'm not sure about RSN - do IC/ICE services run there?

    How will dtg ensure that another annual update doesn't cause the issues that were present don't happen again? It's unacceptable for xbox players to have to uninstall and reinstall their content to get the game working and ps4 players shouldn't have had the issues they had.

    I have a question for the Brighton mainline
    Will the small branch to West croydon be added
    And if its not being added I personally think it should be added as it is not that much track from selhurst it is quite shorter than the Reigate branch

    Question for the stream. The PS5 version of the game often drops from 60fps to just 30fps when at a main station or encountering another moving train on track. Will DTG be addressing this as it is unacceptable (no other PS5 game varies in fps in such an erratic manner)

    Edit. Should point out fps takes a hit when you turn the camera when encountering these slowdowns

    Rush Hour is not fully released, Dresden is upcoming, London Brighton is in Production.

    Steam is a long way off completion yet, we don't know what loco, route etc this will consist of. Not steam the software brand.

    Question for the stream, how long will the rush hour routes be worked on after release by the team that built them before they are handed over to the preservation team and have to wait their turn with all the older routes for fixes and improvements?

    question for the stream: British Summer ends on September 22nd how can you ensure London Commuter and Riesa-Dresden will both routes make it out before the end of summer and not into the autumn since Riesa-Dresden is on upcoming not next arrival and the next roadmap will be 7th September which is just 2 weeks short of when summer ends and London Commuter is still to go after that

    UPCOMING
    • ▲ ® [Route Add-On] DBB-R7 06 Bahnstrecke Riesa - Dresden with DB BR 442, DB BR 143, DB BR 146.2, DB BR 363 in DB livery and BR 185.5 in MRCE black livery

    Moved to upcoming, meaning it's already in testing phase and yet we haven't seen anything yet... I would recommend being wary and not very excited.

    It is not! It is about what you have in your profile picture, bringing steam engines to TSW ;)

    They are previewing it on Thursday’s stream, so you could get a little bit excited.

    Does really matter too much if they overshoot by a couple of days, which, seemingly, is likely to happen now.

    Can you improve the headlights for the rest of the American locomotives? The F40 that came with Northeast Corridor shines further ahead than the rest of them do.

    We got LZB for the 146, but why not for the 185,155,143,425? Also, Matt stated we can get more realistic german freight train lengths (600-740M) When will the team approximately reach this?

    Oh, didn't notice that, thank you for notifying me :)

    My excitement levels haven't bounced back yet, but perhaps the preview is going to be interesting.

    Question for the Stream?
    Are you guys going to fix the Very bad performance FPS for PS4/xbox one in Boston?
    If so...When? Can you give us a time frame?

    Where did we get LZB on the 146? Did I miss anything? It is not working at all lol and not every loco needs LZB as per real life

    I don’t want them to rush it. If it needs longer, it needs longer. I want it to be perfect, or as near perfect as possible.

    My questions:

    - Any progress to report on steam? We didn't hear anything not even the promised articles.
    - Any progress on the scenario planner 2.0? What is going to happen there?
    - Anything to say about fixing the bugs in SEH, Clinchfield and Cane Creek? What is DTG doing to decrease the backlog to a reasonable size?

    Still holding off on a purchase because of this. I hope they release a patch soon because there aren't that many major issues and I would really like to be their customer.
    SEHS: At this point it has probably been delegated to Adam's remit. It may be a while yet before we receive any updates for this route.
    Clinchfield: Still waiting for that SD40 horn...
    Cane Creek: See above.

    Cheers

    I've been wondering that very same thing.
    Maybe they won't. Can't remember if Rivet patches have appeared on the Roadmap or just announced on their own website.
