    In the stream a Railpool 185 has appeared (when Matt selected the services) for just one moment, both visually and in the loco selection. Is it a simple repaint or a new upcoming loco?

    I really liked what was shown:
    - Wonderful sounds and with the perfect volume. The compressed air systems, the engine, the brakes, the horns, the screeching of the tracks and the CLAC CLAC when you go through the crossings.... Incredible mixes.
    - An exterior modelling that looks real.
    - A very detailed interior with lots and lots of buttons to touch, folding seats, the detail of the safety helmet.
    - Tutorial that explains the different braking systems.
    - 4 scenarios + 1 Free Roam in Hagen Yard.
    - 19 Services that can be linked one after the other, which makes it very immersive and puts you in the shoes of a G-6 operator.
    - Use of unpublished areas of RRO. By the way, I love being able to enter factories like the one Matt showed us today. I wish we saw more of this at TSW.

    In short, it was love at first sight :love:

    And this is the first add-on that TSG makes alone, I can't imagine all that it can offer us in the future because it will gain more and more experience. Maik if you read this, congratulations for your work and thanks for giving us this level of detail in all aspects.

    For everyone's convenience - let's keep this thread focused on the G6 though.

    Second this. A lot of effort showed on the screen there. Spectacular job.

    From what I've seen so far, the G6 looked (and sounded!) spectacular. Very much looking forward to getting my hands on this on Thursday. I really liked the meaty sound of running over switches :)
    Physics also seemed on point.

    I'm not a big fan of shunting, but this loco makes me fall in love with it. The level of details, the interactions, the physcis, the sounds. I haven't even found one little thing to complain about other than: When is the next DLC? Seriously, 3rd Party can do great things, if they want to invest the time in doing so.

    Just brilliant :D

    Agreed. It's lovely when you can do stuff like this. Obviously, quite a bit of time and effort went into making a compelling service mode, not unlike the RSN Br 363's timetable.

    Also agreed. It's lovely to access these sidings and little factory yards along the line. A perfect fit for a loco like the G6.

    Just watched the Stream further and Matt confirmed that the BR204 will sub in for the G6. That's amazing!

    TSG is setting the standard that other developers, including DTG itself, should aspire to.

    Like to see that Maik Goltz set colours for accelerating ball on HUD.
    Technical question, what sensitivity it has, only exact 0 for white or it is some area e.(from -1m/min to +1m/min). I would like to have it for SD70.
    Red number on HUD below RPM is gear indicaror (1shunting-2linedriving) ?

    That coloured ball should be on all locos. It first came with Br 423 on HMA and has since been frequently requested for more trains.

    Maybe they could, but now it is Maik's special feature.

    No, there were concerns about colour blind people and i can understand that. But als long as it is not prohibited to use it, i will use it since it is more clear than the original one.

    It snaps in a bit at 0 with about 0.1m/s² tolerance or so. And then it is not linear with the amount of acceleration. It is basically inverse exponential. It shows no value at the end. It shows a clear accelereation related readout.

    Correct.

    I don’t really like shunting at all. But I think I’ll get this DLC, firstly to support what looks like excellent work from TSG and secondly because of the way the services are set up, I think I might enjoy it more.

    Really impressed by the stream last night. This is the standard I want to see.

    While I understand that, some element of this super fine readout like the colour change definitely should be there. Maybe a shape change, an arrow or something else as this thing is super useful. I would love to have something like this when descending US grades.

    This is my perspective also. Not big on shunting and watched the stream only because it was on - and before it was over I was already itching to purchase. Job very well done, Maik.

    I watched the first part of the stream and the overhead power lines were appearing and disappearing constantly. Did this get mentioned at all in the stream?

    They are aware of that, since the engine upgrade the overhead wirs got bit funny. Its hard to make it look decent, they are iirc looking into that

    I thought this loco looks interesting but, I don't have RRO (and don't intend getting it)
    Pity it's not available in other German routes, I'd buy it if it was.

    U should get it imo, its a really fun route, get it when it is on sale. It will be available on the Tharenter rampe, but u need RRO to be able to get the timetable for it, they are looking into it to layer shunter, so then u will be able to drive it on other routes

    I watched Matt driving the tutorial and, besides green is my favourite colour, I was convinced to buy this immediately when available.

    The quality of interior, sound and "feeling" is outstanding and on point from the moment nthe engine started running. Since I know the route quite well, get RailDriver support for the 442, too ... I think I will spend another 50 hours there. Awesome, and definitely worth every cent paid

    Did Maik actually record the English tutorial voiceovers? Sounds like a fellow German, pronunciation-wise ;-) No offense, brave indeed!

    No no, it is not my voice. The voice is borrowed (actually bought with lots of money) from a professional VO-speaker. It's a Swiss guy, what explains the accent in all three languages :)

    Have the stream on in the background (through the hi-fi)- the sound is amazing, the acoustic 'feel' of being inside a diesel loco is brilliantly realized.

    Again, Maik is setting the standard of excellence. This for once will be a Day One purchase, because there is no need here to wait for player reviews.

    It's has been out for a while, but it's unavailable to buy. No idea why, maybe DTG has decided to launch it tomorrow at 17:00 like PC. It's not the first time it happened right? I checked on the NZ store and is not available there as well.

    Might be some sort of community testing as well, or needing more time to test in on consoles. I have no idea.

    It's actually worse than that I didn't miss it, I just skipped that paragraph, I did read about the xbox fix and then though: "cool let's see the patch notes"... almost as bad as not reading the first paragraphs of the roadmap...

    Jokes apart, thanks for the heads up.

    I wonder why they made that decision.

    Never said it would. It was an dev build of the game so yes, there were things in it that aren't there in the game yet. But Matt or anybody else never said there would be a 204 on RRO
