    You guys are awesome, very entertaining. I stopped by for an update as to when my 21 add-ons might be restored, but instead was treated to a world of hate and sadness. Here are some of the highlights for me….
    1. People imagining that “100’s of £’s” is a lot of money…For actual grown-ups that amounts to the weekly coffee and lunch budget.

    2. People demanding compensation. That would make an interesting court case, trying to argue damages because you had to spend leisure time doing one leisurely activity inside of another leisurely activity.

    3. People threatening to show up to DTG offices. I’m sure they would be amused by pimply face teenagers showing up in gaggles of two.

    4.Somebody wrote a very long farewell about how this is the end for them and it’s very sad. That was one of my favorites, I hope it leaves you more time to focus on your new drama career.

    5. Somebody said they could prove it wasn’t Sony’s fault. My question is, once you have the proof, what’s the next big step?

    6. This is my favourite…The long time posters being flabbergasted at first time posters having the nerve to say what they’re saying, Presumably not realizing that one should kneel before the Duke of the forum.

    7. There were a few positive posts, nice to see.

    Thank you DTG for all your hard work. You deserve a better core player base.

    Back in the real world, you'll find that for many people hundreds of pounds is indeed " a lot of money". Where on earth are you buying your coffee?

    Starbuck’s….$8 three times a day plus lunch down the street…~$40. $64/day x 5. = $320 cdn/week. Hope that helps.

    Non ti preoccupare che per molta gente 100 sterline inglesi o 120 euro sono soldi!!! Ovvio che nella vita c'è ben altro con cui divertirsi (soprattutto fare tanto sesso), però è anche vero che uno che ha passione e soddisfazione per un simulatore si aspetta un minimo di rispetto da chi comunque è stato pagato x il lavoro che ha fatto.

    So now we know this is rubbish, Canadians drink coffee from Timmy Hortons and hundreds of dollars don't count when you have worthless money. :)

    According to OP you’re not an “actual adult” unless you throw a lot of money at coffee chains. Proud to announce I’m back in my childhood, someone go buy me some McNuggets!

    Some people may be crossing the line but people expected a product that they brought to work properly. The update broke everything and people can’t access the content they paid for and how long do you expect them to wait? Days? Weeks? Months? Why should people go through the hassle of uninstalling the game and reinstalling it to find out it doesn’t work? PS4 players like myself are furious at DTG/Sony for a reason.

    Has Starbucks ever taken your money and then told you that they're out of coffee and you should come back next week?

    Great friend text, let's think positively, act with respect and wait for the problem to be solved, complain, ask for a refund, it won't solve it. hug

    Just once… total power outage right after transaction…Went back the very next day, received my product and didn’t demand compensation for not having a coffee for 24 hours. All very adult.

    First of all, I don't spend that much money a month on Lunch and coffee, It must be nice to have that much spare cash.

    Secondly, When you pay for my DLC's then and only then can you decide how I react to no longer being able to play a game I've spent hundreds of pounds on.

    I’m not sure if I’m a pimply faced teenager or Duke of the forum. Somewhere in between or a combination of both? I dunno. The price of coffee is ridiculous and I can make it at home for a few pence instead. What were we talking about? Oh yeah, the community. A fine bunch of people, of all ages and gaming machine preferences, of all nationalities, all somehow interested in train simulators. Some of them like to boast about how much money they have. Some are upset that their hobby has been interrupted. My nan’s face when I hide her knitting, not a thing you would like to witness. “Always take the smallest cake on the plate.” she would say. I never knew what it meant until I read someone else’s lunch budget on the internet. I get it now.

    Everything‘s working fine for me, minus the add-ons but I expect they’ll be resolved in the next couple of weeks. At least your sarcasm is a refreshing change from toxicity. Thank you.

    Ah so you went to Starbucks, paid for a Coffee, Found out it wasn't available and to come back another day, Went back and paid for another one. So in the end you paid twice and got one item? Or you didn't pay the first time and so you didn't lose out, So it's not remotely relevant to the current situation.

    I’m glad I could help put it in perspective for you. “A man never stands so tall as when he stoops to help a sad train game enthusiast.”

    I understand a lot of people are frustrated right now. And you've all been super patient while this issue is being fixed.

    But there is no need to fight amongst yourselves. That's not going to get you playing any quicker, and it's probably just going to make you feel worse.

    I do not expect you all to be friends with absolutely everyone on the forums, that's unrealistic. But remember you are all part of the same community. You all share the same passion, and that's great.

    Don't let your frustrations with DTG ruin how you interact with each other on here.

    I agree with this!

    I’ll admit that I’m frustrated with this situation and I really hope that this can be fixed as soon as possible.

    However, I am not going to be throwing my anger towards anyone at DTG. They are working really hard to fix this. Everyone just needs to hang on, we are all in this together.

    Oh this forum is definitely a toxic place to be right now, undoubtedly. But hey, it's a miserable place to be at the best of times too!

    Not “Everyone” is frustrated. I’m delighted. I don’t think DTG should equate nine people complaining with everyone being frustrated.

    Just lock the thread if you have to remove comments, think it's fair to say it's only rubbing people up the wrong way.
