    I'd love to see them driving the ICE tonight as well, but they need to turn on both PZB and LZB :) After Matt's tutorial a couple of months ago, it's not too hard to understand it actually.

    BTW, really hyped to drive on this route! Now I'll have to wait just under an hour for the release in my country :D

    Agreed. It still catches me out sometimes, and I'm not familiar with the freight modes, but Matt's German Safety Systems tutorial was great! It took me from having absolutely zero confidence in driving with PZB, to being able to drive with all safety systems on and by primarily looking at the train's dashboard and the signals, rather than relying on the HUD.

    It took me a while, but now I think I’m quite experienced using PZB, it’s so much more immersive and rewarding when you use it, so much so, I prefer playing German routes over UK ones now!

    I've had similar issues with that too, also on other routes so it's a core issue I think. Sometimes trains even get blurry once you drive alongside them. Might have something to do with motion blur.

    Link guys are hard to come by and all our link guys are currently working on something else. We understand players are frustrated at the lack of a link but once the preserved links are finished we can start to look into fixing old and missing links and adding new features to old links.

    It was a shock for me hearing that they used the BR 425 in the timetable because they haven't made the BR 440 yet. Hope they add it to the Roadmap too :)

    And if they do make the BR 440, they’ll probably stop the BR 425 from working on the route.

    Why they can make also the BR 1440 for S8 Hagen-Wuppertal to make a mixed S-Bahn Service with 1440 and 422.

    DTG used always the 143 loco with 120 km/h and this is awful because the tracks are 160 km/h

    I love the bit about how they can't add flags because the UI designers are busy and it would take some time - there is literally a mod for it already that is constantly updated, and Im sure the author has said its easy peasy to update quickly. it must take minutes at most to add them.

    Not to mention the fact that the flags actually came with the newest preserved release. They can definitely add them to the others, although, I don’t think they’re lying about the fact that you would need to redownload the whole route again.

    Pretty much all of the preserved collection had bugs in it. Some small, some big. Sorry but that's just the way it is. I can give examples but everyone knows the bugs. It is not that much of a problem on most of them though.

    Matt already said in one of the streams that when the Preserved Collection is done they will start fixing bugs in the released Pres. Col. content. When they fix the bugs in "X" route, and "X" route hasn't got a UI flag already, I think they will then add the flag for that particular route alongside the bug fixes.

    I honestly believe that a lot of people who buy German content would like to see this, same with the M3 on the LIRR route. It is simply missing.

    Don't talk like that about my all-time favorite train! No just kidding, it is my favorite but I don't use it either on routes that allow speeds above the 120 kmh, apart from maybe RRO. I don't see the fun in driving a passenger train on a straight line with 120 kmh where something like the BR 146.2 is allowed, and able to, drive at 160 kmh. Just my thoughts. But maybe DTG does this for people who only own the German routes Hauptstrecke München - Augsburg and Ruhr Sieg-Nord who don't have the 146.2 from MSB. Just speculating of course.

    They should give us the opinion to remove Preserved Locos on Time Schedules, because the KI is driving so much the 143 even on Main Spessart Bahn

    That would make the memory issue on Consoles even worse.
    But it would be nice to see all of those services.

    Next month we get PS5 and Xbox Series X and it’s the Same as a highend PC with a lot of Power.
    So all want Works fine with all layers.
    Also other ICE trains can replace the ICE 3 from time schedule to have Mixed Highspeed

    Hello, my name is David. I have a question, I'm buying the new German route next week and will I get the update that came with to get the layers because I have a Xbox one x? Will I be able to get the layers update after I buy the new German route?

    The layers have been disabled through an update yesterday on console until they can get it running without crashing.

    Fun fact: I tried the hack on my PS4 pro and all was running quite smooth (30 fps). Hope they're able to solve this problem fairly quick, and I sincerely hope we can have all 427 services, and not just only MSB/only RRO or something like this.

    I've noticed a famous missing landmark behind Munich main station, it's the Frauenkirche with its two high towers. Because it isn't far away it should be visible, just like the large dome roof of the district court. Otherwise it's been a nice and detailed route.

    It will because TSW2 is for the PS4 not the PS5. It will work on the PS5 but it also still has to work on the PS4.

    ...the real life photo is taken with a different focal length, so it seems to be bigger. You can create the same effect in the game by using the camera zoom.

    There's something else that's missing! The Grundig logo is visible from the inside of the station, but not from the outside!

    ...to get all the layers for the consoles (no matter if PS4 or Xbox) is still a memory problem (I guess the limited amount of 8GB RAM) and needs some core engine modifications. That's why DTG hasn't released it yet, but they are working on it. Of course a Xbox One X has 12GB RAM and more power reserves than the standard model, but they want to make an equal gaming experience for everyone, no matter what type of current gen console. According to the roadmap the missing layers for Munich-Augsburg are under investigation and will come, but it still can take a while...

    We already know that you don’t like non-freight DLCs and whatnot, however is it really necessary to state this on every DLC announcement that is posted on here?

    I like Hauptstrecke München Augsburg. DB BR 403 (ICE 3) this time with full digital cockpit and DB BR 423 are great. The same with the impressive Munich Mainstation and the maintenance point and the big yard s in the near. And hopefully the additional layers for consoles will move fast in the roadmap from in planning to upcoming next.

    With people now having more powerful consoles it is probably time to patch the console version so that the layers are off by default but can be enabled by players at their own discretion with a suitable warning for PS4/XBONE players. Otherwise, as said in other places, they are holding everyone down to the lowest level and that is not fair.

    So, your opinions are crucial but mine are frivolous? Suppose I stated the opposite? Yes, I have the right to put in my 2 cents worth just as much as you do. That's why it's called a forum, not a dictatorship.

    In your opinion, your opinions are valuable and mine are baseless? That could lead me to look at your statement in the mirror, but this is a forum and I have just as much right as you to post my opinion. I've seen posts in which forum members state that routes dominated by freight and shunting are of less value than those that feature only passenger trains: have you pronounced them baseless as well?

    out of your 1,524 posts, how many are "no freight, no shunting, no buy" Im willing to say that phrase is in atleast 30%.
