    As we all know, Train Sim World has a number of bugs. Some minor, some major. It seems at times these are reported time and time again, with no resolution. I've gone through the last few pages of bugs, alongside the ones I found, and have made a master list below.

    The purpose of this list is so that everyone can see the existing bugs and for just how long they've been around for. Hopefully this will encourage Dovetail to go back and fix some of their existing DLC.

    United Kingdom:

    East Coastway:

    Class 66 - 6Y43 headcode is duplicated. The second headcode should be 6Y67. (14/05/20)
    Class 377 - AWS self-test only works the first time a unit is keyed it. It should work every time. (14/05/20)
    Class 377 - 2C70 22:41 Brighton - Seaford (Limited Stops) is described as going to Seaford, but actually terminates Lewes. (14/05/20)
    Class 377 - AI trains sounds do not reflect them slowing down. (14/05/20)
    Class 377 - Impossible to gain silver / gold medals on the runs from Lovers Walk depot (15/05/20)

    West Somerset Railway:

    Class 47 - Hugely under powered on console. Most noticeable on the NTP route. (14/05/20)

    Germany:

    DB BR 204:

    Brakes are too abrupt / overpowered. (14/05/20)

    Main-Spessart Bahn

    Journey mode has a minor typo "Passenger" is spelt as "Pasenger". (14/05/20)
    Aschaffenburg - Gemunden reads: Drive this non-stop freight eastbound from Aschaffenburg to Aschaffenburg to Gemunden. (03/03/20)

    Rhein-Ruhr Osten

    Preview map for S-Bahn services shows them as all going via Ennepetal, when they should go via Gevelsberg. (14/05/20)
    When operating a service via Ennepetal, most station starter signals remain at red until the doors are closed. You'd never commence the dispatch procedure against a red signal. It also means the PZB gives you a speed restriction, constantly making you late. (14/05/20).

    USA & Canada:

    LIRR M3:

    Horn gets quieter when the window is open (14/05/20).
    Acknowledge button puts train into emergency (14/05/20).
    Cab control button panel on driver side is low resolution, however saloon panel is higher resolution. (Xbox)(15/05/20)

    Core Issues:

    Saving and loading the game causes many things to randomly break. (14/05/20)
    ECS often have passengers on them. (14/05/20)

    Resolved Issues:

    Does not install correctly for Xbox users. (14/05/20) - Resolved (14/05/20).

    Please feel free to add any other bugs you find to this thread. I'll then keep the main post updated so that we can have a master record. Given the DTG aren't very transparent about fixing bugs, I feel this is the best way.

    Also, if there's older threads for the above bugs, please link them and I'll update the first reported date.

    If you are going to do a full bugs list then you need to go through all the bugs pages on the forum, put them all in a table (not here, on your own computer), cross reference that with bug fixes from the update posts, for all platforms , find out what bugs are current, and keep on top of it daily for the rest of time, editing your post daily to be up to date. Even then I think you will be wasting your time. There is no way you would get it right without the help of numerous people on the forum correcting your mistakes and filling in things you may have missed. That is not going to happen, as you will have seen from the initial response you have had.

    What will happen is that you will have a massively incomplete list of bugs in a non-searchable format (one post) which will confuse anyone that reads it. Dovetail already have a comprehensive method for gathering bugs, from many more places than just the forum, so a massive single post on a forum with incomplete information is unlikely ever to be looked at by them, so would not encourage them to go and fix their old DLC bugs.

    Passengers will be randomly standing in the door area of the M3 (Xbox 1) making it impossible to go around them.

    Of course, you are totally right that this thread is not the best way of tracking bugs, and that dovetail do have a comprehensive method of tracking bugs.

    Unfortunately they simply don't fix a lot of them.

    Take the Class 47 for starters, it's been underpowered significantly from release. No resolution.

    Also, the lack of transparency means players have no clue what's been logged before and what hasn't. So they end up with multiple bugs, all of which they give the same copy paste response to.

    It's just a little disappointing that bugs aren't resolved, and I'm hoping a thread like this will put a little more pressure on them.

    Unless the entire forum comes here and starts complaining, DTG will just release another DLC adding more bugs to the evergrowing list that will not end.
