    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

    Ahem. I'm sure you meant "Route Planner". The term "editor" is verboten these days.:cool:

    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?

    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 :D

    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.

    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.

    When I was younger, this sort of SWAG-ing usually began with "animal, vegetable, or mineral?"

    Yeah, if it's on the roadmap it'll either be a DLC, feature or bugfix.

    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.

    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.

    That'd be awesome. Most of the "Rants" would go. I heavily doubt it though. Not really a "Project", but who knows.

    Isn't it obvious, the new feature that Sam wants is Donut stations situated around the DTG office.

    I think it is not a feature for the game but a feature for Sam himself : implantation of artificial hair.

    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.
