Hi all i just wanted to make a thread about route extensions and how i think dovetail can implement them into the game My rules for route extensions Route extensions should be in TSW but you should have to buy them which it will then be automatically added to an existing route, you will not receive an extension to a route if you have not brought it unless you have brought a route with an extension in a bundle. route extensions should be priced at £14:99 and should be within a distance range of 2 - 20 Miles or 3.2 - 32.1 Kilometres What should the first route extension to train sim word be The first route extension DLC to come to TSW i think should be either the London Bridge to East Croydon route or the sheerness branch from Sittingborne to sheerness on sea WHY? Well the most possible extension would be the sheerness branch from sheerness-on-sea to sittingborne since i think it sold well in train simulator and i dont think it would be to hard for dovetail to implement, dovetail have said on previous streams that the actual linking of routes is pretty straight forward its just the timetables that are a pain, thats why I chose this route since most of the services are either sheerness-on-sea to sittingborne or sittingborne to sheerness on sea sometimes you get the occasional service from sheerness to faversham station which we already have in the game and the other service from sheerness on sea to London Victoria and vice versa (the other way around) the locos that would arrive with this route would be the class 375 since class 465s have been suspended from short distance services and would help dovetail actually sell it because if dovetail sold a route with the current 465 DLC know one would buy the 465 on its own and you would only get the service from London Victoria to sheerness so it’d be pointless the timetable for this extention should be its own but when it hits the current route the timetable would then be treated like layers so the sittingborne to sheerness timetable would be its own for the dlc but any services exceeding sittingborne would then be treated like layers then this would actually give platform 3 at sittingborne more use. ill create another post all about this route after I’ve created this one in much more detail including pics, timetables, locos and possible layers The next extension route that would be great for dovetail to include would be the London Bridge to east Croydon extension, this line would be great for dovetail to have since it would add the possibility for more loco DLCs and would sell very well, the loco that would come with this route would be the class 377 EMU and possibly a Thameslink dlc though I highly doubt that would be a class 700 since the licensing is hard to get, the services are quite limited on this extension since other operators make it seem more busy like Thameslink and Overground, Thameslink operates trains on the up fast and down fast tracks as well as southern express services while southern and Overground operates slower metro services up and down the slow tracks until new cross gate where Overground trains then divide from the main line and head to Highbury and Islington but southern metro services head towards London Bridge where they terminate like the sheerness line, this line could also advantage from the partially layered timetable where anything from east Croydon to London Bridge is its own timetable and anything exceeding east Croydon is then layered on to the upcoming Brighton mainline route Please note: i dont know if anything i have said will work but it is something DTG could possibly look into, and, i dont know how dovetail creates timetables and layers and if a partially layered timetable is possible in any way. any comments you wish to post underneath i will try as hard as i can to view them all and reply to some of them depending on what you have put thank you for reading for new forum members all your comments down below will be publicly visible to other forum members and members of the dovetail games team.
