    Putting my 2 cents in. I think it's thingy he's been asking the tech-team where the cursor dissappears from the screen after a few seconds.

    I doubt that TSW2 will see TSW3 any time soon either, porting over content from TSW2020 to TSW2 is overly ambitious and they nearly did it. I think the UE4 upgrade will have to be within TSW2 as I extremely doubt they wanna convert everything in the preserved collection again.

    I'm just gonna say, whatever this will be, it will be interesting.

    If they change major UE version then they will have to either port, rebuild or abandon previous DLC anyway

    Not taking anything away from Sam, but bare in mind he is acting Community Director at the moment. As far as I know he isn’t a developer etc. My guess is something to do with the community on this basis rather than anything specific to the game, but happy to be proven wrong.

    It could be a revamp of these forums. He mentioned some time ago he wanted it all reorganised, merging the pc/console sections etc..but he put it off due to TSW2's launch

    This more is in line with what he does for DTG rather than seeing him spearhead core additions to the game

    I don't think it is Mastery. It is on the roadmap, so it isn't really that much of a secret.

    We’ve cracked it...

    It’s a revamped forum where we can discuss the new multiplayer in which we can all drive steam trains with accessible toilets on a route that’s been created by merging RSN, RRO and a reworked NEC. There’s a monorail branch line that has a secret BR420 with a new PIS system and train announcements by Geoff Marshall and Sam speaking German. Auto colonel cam can be unlocked in the new Mastery but only for this new route, which also features shareable liveries and scenarios. There will be video tutorials and a manual for it, it’s called TSW3, and it’ll be out for Christmas. And it’s FREE!!!

    Well done everyone!

    I think it's got something to do with the suggestions, dtg has looked at all suggestions of the last year, and sam wanted to do some kind of list, forum post or something like that. Yes I know not my best guess but we'll see.

    It will be available only for some beta testers and DTG will pay for them to play it. :D

    The range of theories going on here is really quite interesting to watch. To set expectations ever-so-slightly, I'm not trying to get you hyped for a teaser trailer or similar. That would be low. The bar is a bit higher than that.

    Flashback to when the TSW1 "big announcement" ended up being that it was coming for consoles.

    So, who knows, maybe the new big announcement is that TSW2 is coming to Switch or something, lol

    I was wondering, if the toilets are unlocked, will there be a PIS system there?

    Sorry couldn't resist.

    Are we going to be able to paint all the "preserved" locomotives?
    Maybe we're gonna have a Beta steam locomotive?
    A kind of locomotive simplified in terms of driving but still as realistic graphically? (yes I'm dreaming)

    At least that was to do with TSW, not the FellowsFilm thing who massively hyped up the OMSI community and it ended up having nothing to do with OMSI.

    we're looking at it wrong - they're cancelling TSW. that is DTGs Christmas present, hiding behind COVID./s

    although we all know what happened last time this happened, I swear to God if youre trying to hype people up just to say its coming to "next-gen" consoles you can shove your heads where the sun never does shine.

    Surely that would be a good thing! The more users the better for the future of the sim. Not sure there was any need for blasphemy though!

    It’s okay to get excited about or speculate about something coming in the future even if it ends up being something that you won’t necessarily use or appreciate. I’m here doing just that despite the fact that I’m currently not planning to buy any more DLC until the issues are sorted on PS4. That’s not as a protest by the way, that’s purely because I don’t want any more broken content at the moment. I’m confident that the issues with quality will get addressed in one way or another and there will be future content that I’ll enjoy. This, whatever it is, may or may not be part of that depending on what it is. But the forum is also an important part of my TSW life now (I never set out for that to happen, it just has) and I’m going to enjoy this speculation as an antidote to having to complain about quality or report another bug I encounter. It’s a bit of fun until whatever it is that gets announced.

    I hope it's got something to do with a button you press on the keyboard to do the doors instead of doing the TAB menu (although i've personally become quite content with using the in-cab controls), but I seriously doubt it.

    Maybe it's...
    • Car Sim World?
    • Boat Sim World?
    • Bus Sim World?*
    • Bicycle Sim World?
    • An open-world RPG?
    • The next Forza Horizon game?
    • Burnout 6?
    • A spin-off of Top Gear starring Matt Peddlesden, Sam and Geoff Marshall?
    *Not a bad idea actually...

    Actually I have often thought some kind of Car Sim World would be a good simulator. I don't mean a racing sim or where you drive a Ferrari around San Francisco but maybe something more retro.

    Sales Rep sim where it is 1978 and you have an allowance of £3,000 for a new company car. Do you buy a Cortina or maybe a Princess or Cavalier, or something more exotic like the new Renault 18 or a Lancia Beta? Then you have the challenges of getting to appointments on time, navigating busy city streets or blasting down motorways.

    Finding cars to model and record sounds from would be easy as there are plenty about, I can provide two "modern classics".

    Maybe it would be quite boring, but I have often wanted a driving sim which didn't involve driving round a racetrack or knocking over the boundaries of realism like Forza.

    If I remember well, Sam mentioned that he will withdraw from the position of community manager. He will be present but less frequently because he has some secret project he works on. Therefore I think it will blow us out from the chairs ;)

    I can be mistaken though, memoria fragilis est :D
