Seems its impossible to have any thoughts on UK content of todays era for TSW. Good luck to those with a dislike of anything of todays technology; for some of us, modern operations wouldn't go amiss and enjoyment of past traction is great but as with life, everything has a place; but again, any suggestion of the sort gets put down by the know it alls here; I may sound wrong in what i've said fair enough but to be fair no one here as any bearing on someone's wish, but again I am not surprised in the slightest tbf, as a UK resident I find sometimes peoples mentality here is very stuck in one realm compared to fellow gamers of other areas (no offence to those who UK lot who like variation) I find it's the same names who like to push their weight around, and most of them are in this thread. Yes ex_railwayman we do currently use both TS1 and TSW, so thank you for pointing out the obvious, and yeah I would like to see todays operations in TSW graphical excellence *rolls eyes at the state of minds here*
I hope you're right.
Looks like you're wrong since the past few dlc have been leaked before announced.
A slightly hyperbolic statement.
I don't think anyone put down suggestions it is just that for those who prefer backdated routes, we are in the rare position (not seen since MSTS days) when we have had two routes in a row set in the 80's. I want to see routes of all periods and would welcome the next route being modern but it is great to see something you cannot experience anymore and a time many of us remember represented in the sim. I am hoping in a couple of years the sim will cover everything from steam period up to the latest technology.
As for "mentality stuck in one realm" you could say the same about those wanting modern routes and moaning about these latest releases.
The first UK route was set in modern times and if you were being pedantic you could include the WSR as a modern route! I would not be surprised in the next two or three British routes are all modern period and outnumbering the "heritage" routes.
Nothing stopping anybody from having thoughts on UK content of todays era for TSW, depends if DTG are going to build it, which nobody will know about unless you work for them and know their programme of route construction for the next 10 years, 'cos that's a rough guess as to how many more years are in this project, unless XBox and Playstation disband their console gaming for something else and then DTG will have to review their strategy.
And not having a crystal ball handy I don't know who on this TSW forum also plays on TS19, I can't seem to find you name over on the other forum LT586, you must be new, have you been around since Kuju days of 2007, or, even MSTS days of 2004????
To be fair, apart from maybe people asking for steam locos the part of the community which wants modern routes is usually the more vocal one (which isn't surprising considering that quite a lot of them are teenagers). If you compare the content available for TS20XX to model trains or MSTS it also leans massively towards modern stuff. In the German forums you even often hear that it's not worth creating older locos because they won't sell well.
hello let's hope there are mokte Activity to play, and new routes to go, but the line is electrified or diesel?
It's diesel operated.
Quite, I can only think of a handful of BR period commercial routes for TS1
Original Newcastle to York
West Highland Extension
West Highland South
Creative Rail eastcoast routes, I think both were set in BR days
WCML over Shap was supposed to be era neutral I think
Liverpool to Manchester was modern but with BR sector liveried stock
So really three of these are quite niche (ish), two cover parts of the same line and two were some kind of hybrid compromise.
Steam period routes have fared quite well in TS1.
Possibly so, according to others, however, this is supposed to be the official TSW forum isn't it, don't know why we have to go hunting around the internet trying to find information. I've never heard of this Discord thingy, do we need to have the secret handshake to join, what's the matter with things being printed on here, we've been saying for the last 10 years that DTG's communication has been virtually non-existant, now they seem to have employed staff to take on the role of Customer Services, but, we aren't getting any service, only others seem to be priviledged with information on other internet forums, and at the end of the day this is just a hobby, I'm always interested in learning official updates and announcements, but, other people seem to want to spoil it for the rest of us by finding out stuff beforehand and then telling everybody else about it, are you expecting a medal, or, a pat on the back, it's just bloody childish......
Apparently DTG are having some problems getting the licenses for UK modern routes from the TOCs (in this case Northern). This would explain why we aren't getting any modern British stuff and more specifically for this route, no pacer or sprinter.
Yeah, but this route could still have a BR regional railways pacer (definitely ok) and currently the Pacers are in an unbranded livery in real life, so they might be able to get away with that. Not sure, though.
I honestly kinda like the spoilers. Gets rid of my thrive to know the next route. Though everything you said is true. It's flat out rude to spoiler something someone wants to witness themselves or officially.
My sentiments exactly ex_railwayman, but I got shouted down as being ridiculous etc. The "ooh look what I've found, look what I've found everyone..." gang are annoying. But apparently, you shouldn't read the threads if you don't want the spoilers...
I'm mod on that unofficial Train Simulator discord channel and the latest leaks do not really (or only partially I guess) originate from there. They were found by someone on the German forums in the game files and some Germans on the discord server just dug a little deeper. Also the link to it is pinned in the Steam forums.
A blue 47 wouldn’t of looked out of place in Teeside in 1989 either.
Wouldn't it need a headlight though?
It would. Use the WSR one?
besides this route there are others under construction?
That's not public information.
it's a simple question
Yeah, and I'm sure the answer is "yes, they are making more routes," but DTG never tells what the routes are until close to release.
The answer is simple too. We don’t know until DGT announce the new routes or they’re leaked.
You can be sure that there ARE routes and locos under construction, but when, what, how much and how they will work is a mystery. Possibly even to them
surely it will go ahead with new dlc routes
The route Is online steam,pre ordin
I've changed my mind. I think I'll buy it. It looks interesting enough with potential.
