I wish I could upvote this more than once.
If only i could upvote this multiple times.
For people whose asking for 100% or 1000% of realism, go get some life outside, you need it. Hahahaha cheers.
one of these days you might actually post a positive comment that is not a complaint
dhekelian worth checking this post on another thread. It's been implemented, but they're not showing for some reason at the moment (requiring further investigation). No ETA whilst we understand the problem.
I think the problem is that there seem to be quite a few issues like this so close to release, not least of all being the automatic fireman and the excessive blowing off from the safety valves (even when idle!),which will be absolutely infuriating in game but you and Matt have completely downplayed. I asked several times in the stream (and I'm pretty sure somewhere on the forums) if there could be some kind of toggle to mute the safety valves until the issues with the automatic fireman are fixed, but it's fallen on deaf ears.
Not only are there immersion breaking issues, but in typical DTG fashion we have absolutely no idea when fixes will be implemented. I wonder if we'll have to wait months to see track sounds and a competant automatic fireman. We've been waiting since september on Boston Sprinter's signalling issues so it makes you wonder.
1. This is super helpful GG DTG
2. ONLY 1 day remaining
Worth checking the Announcements forum for a list of issues that are going to make the reception of this route rather interesting, especially for Gen 8 players.

Credit to DTG for being up-front about these before release, but some of these are pretty brutal.
DTG JD When goes the Update live today?
Has it been announced its today?
It should be today, aiming for this afternoon. Will let you know if that changes.
So how much realism is ok? 95%, 80%, 60%, 10%, 1%? What metric are YOU using to measure it, because it seems pretty subjective and this may come as a shock to you but not everyone shares your views and it's just possible that may not make them wrong/evil/toxic/whatever word of the day now means you don't agree with me.
Just because you don't find a particular feature to be necessary means you are happy to right off and ridicule anyone that does. But I guess that's what I expect from this "negative" community.
Buy product, consume product, get excited for next product. Right?
Thanks for flagging that, the new announcements tend to get hidden by all the pinned posts.
It’s nice to have everything broken down on what to expect so thanks DTG for that.
Some big differences for Gen 8 but I’m happy with that. It seems fair enough to get it working and not hold everyone else back,
Excellent thank you.
Oh I'm an extremely kind person but a criticist is what I define myself as. I want the best for this simulator that's all.
I would have thought you would be more into Realism than Idealism
Most other forum members agree with my comments, so I'll continue to criticise when respectively relative to a topic. E.g Fireman/woman attire.
They are promised to come. It will take some time, though!
I signed up just to say that I’m massively disappointed with the Spirit of Steam DLC. I’m on an xbox series S and am encountering numerous sound related bugs/glitches. I spawned into Liverpool Lime Street and a loop of what sounded like a locomotive coupling to coaches was playing loudly despite no such thing happening. I boarded a train and within minutes the sound of the coach on rails had reduced to a short loop and sounded more like a jackhammer.
Hey, sorry to hear that. This is the infamous 'jackhammer' issue we're seeing across all our content at the moment (it's not just limited to Steam). We give an outline in our latest Roadmap as to what it is, and our investigation so far. It's a long-term fix, and quite a complex one at that, but we're working on it. We're sad that it's impacted your initial enjoyment of the route though.
(I don't know when you've been playing from, but there should be an update to the route that was released an hour or so ago. Not sure it'll help on Audio, but it helps with performance and any crashes).
H'mmm. Beginning to wonder if I should divert the money back to TSC, get the Marches and Clan Line! (Or NWC and the Royal Scot).
No game pass discount ? Don't want to buy it then see it gets the discount say tomorrow
Is this jackhammer sound on both generation xbox 8/9? Because i'm on xbox one s and have heard anything like that yet or maybe i haven't been in the right situation to hear it yet.
All Xbox (but only Xbox).
Clarification appreciated and will take under advisement. However Clan Line and the Marches is looking very attractive at present…
Also for everyone on this thread's visibility - said I'd update when I knew more - we have a fix in for testing for the (lack of) track joint sounds. The hope is to get it out with the post-release patch due within the next couple of weeks.
dhekelian / OldVern (I know you'd mentioned it, apologies for others I've missed off the tag)
Wheres the game pass discount ?
Xbox Game Pass members can save up to 20% on Xbox games purchased from the existing catalog, as well as up to 10% off related game add-ons and consumables.
For game add-ons and consumables, Xbox Game Pass members receive up to a 10% discount from the day the add-on is released.
The GP discount usually becomes active a few days after release. On previous thursday releases it got live during the night between the following saturday and sunday- so if you're after it I suggest to wait until Friday this time
When does this release on Steam I heard it was 4 pm?
So 6 pm in the UK
Clan Line never doesn't look attractive. I've been on the footplate of it and it's a magnificent loco. I'd love to see the rebuilt Merchant Navys in TSW2 at some point, but that's for another thread.
As I remarked in my TSC thread, had the pleasure of being hauled behind it ex Swindon Works in 1984. Glorious machine.
Bit of a scummy practice , every other GP discount works from day one.
