I fell down from the chair I think we have the winner
Please let it be consist editor.
BWT WHO is Sam ?
Simulation Announcements Man
And I thought it might be some one important, like the owner of the company
Its Sam aka Colonel Failure(youtube) also does streams, particularly the Roadmap ones.
So he is in no way involve with DTG then, so why all the fuss is about
it is DTG Protagonist
THen he has nothing todo with youtube, 2 different things
DTG protagonist is Sam the community manager. When he isn't working for DTG he makes video's on his youtube channel called Colonel failure. So to summarize it DTG Protagonist,Sam & Colonel Failure are the same person
Whatever, but this still does not explain what the fuss is about, everyone has secret, and secret are not ment to be revealed, unless it is like something about like in the is case the game, but he would not know anything about it until the revealed date in any case, as he is only the PR man of sort
Might be a little far out there, but...
A Route Editor!
Ahem. I'm sure you meant "Route Planner". The term "editor" is verboten these days.
And while the caravan train was close, I am sure it is this instead:
He said earlier in the thread that it was something that he was working on. Since he used an official DTG account to say this it's almost certainly something related to Train Sim World (or at the very least Dovetail Games). Unless we have already guessed it/we guess it at some point, we'll have no idea what it is until the time comes.
UnlimitedMagic correctly guessed the contents of TSW2 prior to its announcement. Maybe your psychic abilities will help us here?
New loco DLC:
Hey, we need this in Ottawa for the LRT, at least this one will work
Train Sim World 2 - Autumn Livery Designer Competition (dovetailgames.com)
Wonder if this is it...
I thought that too.
Given we're in the last week of November, I think it would've been better for it to be a winter-themed competition, but oh well
well not quite there is still monday next week
Let's see . . . what's beyond speculation? Ah, yes! Pure fantasy; well, it keeps some folks occupied.
I don't remember where it was, but iirc, Sam said it was a new position at DTG, not a new feature. Don't quote me on this though, I could be wrong.
I think so. But like I said, I don't remember where he said it, if I even heard him right.
Because I’m bored, I’m reviving this thread with an update that people who don’t watch the live streams might not have heard. Don’t get too excited, we still don’t know anything. More speculation and gossip.
Sam (and Natalie and Jamie) are routinely asked about Sam’s secret and only Sam gives anything away. He said this week that he has two (or more) secrets and he’s going to put one on the roadmap on 22nd December (Edited to give correct info). Probably, almost certainly, not the big secret, but we will see. He’s previously said that a big song and dance will be made of that one.
He also mentioned that he’s not doing the roadmap streams after DTG’s Christmas break. Natalie is taking over. So that is one cast iron fact in this post for you.
Not from the streams, but I’ve noticed that the job vacancy for Director of Community has gone from the Dovetail website, so either they have found someone or Sam’s taking that role on permanently. As they have previously talked about the position on the live streams but have not mentioned it in any stream I’ve seen since the vacancy disappeared from the website, I think Sam’s taken the job and that is ‘one’ of his many secrets. I may be, as I so often am, completely wrong. Please don’t shoot me.
Did he change the information on yesterday's stream compared to Tuesday? Because there he mentioned throwing it in a roadmap on 22nd December, not next week.
THAT is EXACTLY what we need -_-"
Ah, I think you’re right, there was a few things to take in on both streams. I watched them back to back almost. So not this coming roadmap but the one after. Getting ahead of myself as usual. I have no idea what day it is most of the time.
Could it be Sam's very own Schwellenpflug?
When I was younger, this sort of SWAG-ing usually began with "animal, vegetable, or mineral?"
Hes not going to throw a promotion on the roadmap. That would be very David
Yeah, if it's on the roadmap it'll either be a DLC, feature or bugfix.
Sams surprise, they have gone back and done NEC...
Seriously i have no idea.
Listening to what Sam said on the last stream the next Road Map is Dec 8 , and I believe it is the last one of the year. As he said that DTG closes down for a week and a half for Christmas break.
If the bar is higher than a trailer or teaser for something, what could it be? Maybe they're taking over Grand Central's cancelled Blackpool service.
I honestly dont think its worth getting hyped over. Its DTG, its bound to be something like "you can now change the menu background colour" or something.
They don't have the level to do this dude
Sam doesn't work on DLC or bugfixes (correct me if I am wrong though)...so it's most probably some feature he has been pushing internally for which he wants to take 'ownership' of and make its announcement via the roadmap.
With Mastery coming on the next release, I sort of regret saying this now... lol
be awsome if Sam the new CEO at DTG
That'd be awesome. Most of the "Rants" would go. I heavily doubt it though. Not really a "Project", but who knows.
Next project : virtual reality
In order to have more less FPS than today and more less graphic quality
Isn't it obvious, the new feature that Sam wants is Donut stations situated around the DTG office.
Thought it might be bingo tickets all around the stations.
I think it is not a feature for the game but a feature for Sam himself : implantation of artificial hair.
Maybe those poor passengers will finally get an umbrella and a coat for the autumn and winter scenarios?
I think this new development is most likely an Amtrak route. They seem to act a bit strange whenever the topic of Amtrak comes up, not ruling it out. They also said they will come out with the development code next roadmap, which will give us a lot of info, so something like an editor, or multiplayer, would be unlikely because the code wouldn’t exist. My next best guess here would be a steam train.
Iirc, I think Sam said that he would have a new job at DTG. So maybe he has taken that job. As for the other secret, it can't be mastery since that is already on the road map. While there could be an Amtrak route coming up, I don't think this is it. No other route got this kind of hype before getting a place on the roadmap. Whatever it is, DTG must be confident that it will go over well with the community, because they are certainly hyping it up. Or it is just Sam being his usual, joking, humorous self.
I've definitely though that too. Especally with the way Sam acts towards that topic and American trains in general.
