    I normally stick to driving in the daytime but after seeing how this route looks at night, on the streams, I am hooked.

    The best route for lighting so far. Very impressive. DTG should consider asking the guys to do the other routes too. They are clearly very capable at what they do.

    I couldn’t agree more, the lighting on this route really makes it shine! I actually want to drive at night and it adds a lot to the experience as a whole. Really impressed and I really hope they continue to use this implementation in the future.

    Been running ICE’s and IC’s at night, with some Spotify in the background, it’s such a therapeutic, moody scene.

    Yes I have to say as well that the night lighting looks next level. It really is beautiful, from the stations and track to the way the cab interior is lit. (Xbox sound issue aside) The running, engine, brake sounds etc… of the trains are a pleasure to listen to as well. It's obvious that a lot of work has gone into this route. Congratulations all!

    The sky box lightning for night time has improved. Great stuff indeed.

    Thank you for the feedback. We are listening! We're really happy with how the lighting has come out in this route.

    We'll pass this onto the team, and it'll be something we consider for future routes (London Commuter will not have this though, however).

    I know London Commuter wont have the full light effects introduced in BRD. However, it would be nice to not have dark buildings like on Boston. Highrise buildings in a city just don't look right without some lights on.

    I agree that the updates to the time of day and lighting on Dresden is amazing and do hope following all the feedback this is a standard to improve nighttime gameplay in the future.

    It'd be accurate for London though, the amount of places that get bought up by rich folks and never lived in. The city has plenty towers in the most expensive areas that are pitch black all the time.

    I happened to be in London - late at night - back in June.

    Whilst it was A) Westminister and B) I'd just come off the Jube at 00:15 (Ahh, the joys of international football...) at Westminster Tube Station- Not a soul to be found (except a couple who clearly had a few too many, but my story of that day isn't on this topic), and near enough all the buildings - except Big Ben and Westminister/Victoria Tube Stations, were literally pitch black.

    Don't quite know how it is in the South of London or whatnot, but Westminster - especially the later it get - seems to just die.

    (P.S. this was after "Freedom Day", and was a Friday night.)

    TL;DR, it's not the busiest at night, from what I know.
