    Nice update but I find odd that this Dev Diary is only posted in the PC section and not the PS4 or Xbox. Can you post it in every area the game is available please? Some people may only look in the forum relevant to the platform they play the game on.

    Will the german freight trains get the note in description what PZB mode si correct for them U or M.
    Will the MSB passenger timetable get the RE/RB train numbers in future? It's very usefull for search box for filter services this way like on RSN where RB56 are all short run trains Hagen - Letmathe.

    PC was posted at 4.14pm and PS4 at 4.41pm which was after I pointed out to them it should be on every platform forum and not just PC. :)

    You forgot to mention the exact time it was posted for Xbox also what are the exact seconds of the times it was posted and why does it matter so much. ;)

    Xbox was 4.41pm too and the reason it matters so much is because Dmitri posted it on PC and not PS4/Xbox until it was pointed out to him to do so. Like I said in my response to him. Not everyone will look in the PC sub-forum and will only look at the forum related to the platform they play the game on.

    They’ve posted updates on the new DLC and TSW2020 in every forum but this dev diary was only in the PC section yet is relevant to every platform.

    That’s why. :)

    They should just do away with the various platform sections except in bug reports. Given they've pledged that all new releases will be cross-platform it makes sense

    Nice, some questions:

    - In the review, which speed limit is shown? Track speed, signal speed, does it take into account train speed limits as well?
    - I miss the stars you can gain in the review screen
    - I really hoped the game save function would be improved, instead escape- save game- confirm- resume, I would like to see:
    save game (noting more).

    Still not any news on the content editing tools?

    Otherwise this update looks good. Now finally journeys are explained. The bad news is I need a major rewrite of the Starters Guide .... because so many concepts have other names and the new menus ..

    Good idea, it just feels sometimes that the PC section is their main forum and the console ones are afterthoughts. You never see screenshot contests posted in the Xbox or PS4 forums yet Dmitri/Martin etc... always post them in the PC section.

    Only track speed is monitored in TSW2020.
    As Matt say, in future they upgrade this to recognise speed limits given by signals.
    Stream record is on youtube:

    Of all the changes to the user interface in TSW2020, so far I most appreciate the ability to pop up a list of all of an activity's requirements, especially just by pressing the T key. Thanks for this improvement.

    Somewhere in these forums, I came across an official TSW message about another freight pack coming out soon. Can someone please point me to that message?
