    As Rush Hour comes to an end the Roadmap gets busier. A quick glance at the Roadmap and you will spot that there are a lot of changes happening.

    CHANGELOG:
    We added in an addition to the roadmap entitled: 'Dovetail Livery Mastery Rewards.' This was a typo, and should have read: 'Dovetail Live Mastery Rewards.'

    We're in the process of amending the original article, but having seen the positive reaction we will explore the practicalities of making something like this a reality. We'll chat about this more in the stream tonight.

    Surely with 3 add ons before next roadmap , the 187 and 38 stock would have to release on the same day ?

    Correct. Details here. PS5 and Xbox players will see a further update which will enable Meissen (and other Add-ons-related patches) hopefully later today.

    For the second part, since the ICE 3 is going to be removed from the default timetable, does that mean I won't be able to see them as a.i. only service if using the original timetable?

    Xbox players would rather see a fix for the outstanding issues that still haven’t gone away.

    Ikr. There’s so much DTG could have done. GEVOs, SD70M, SD60, SD9043MAC, SW10, AC6000. So much wasted potential

    SD-40s are ubiquitous for the horseshoe curve

    It’s just the fact that it’s an extremely popular locomotive in the US.

    We appreciate that - and we have been focusing on it as a priority. There is a fix being tested for the texturing issue at the moment, but it wasn't quite ready for this patch. The audio issue is a very complex issue, which, to manage expectations, is something we're not able to fix in the short-term future (although we want to long-term).

    Thanks for your patience - we appreciate it's frustrating.

    The important thing is that it's not months away. We (well... I) can wait a few weeks, as long as it's happening soon

    Man just as they finally get to updating RSN they postpone it... rip db br 155 sounds, gone for more than a year.
    I'm still waiting for some new loco dlcs to appear in planning too, it's been ages since the last one.
    I don't see a problem with reusing a widespread loco for the third time. It wouldn't make sense not to have that on there anyway.

    I am excited for the DB BR 187 that is suddenly in Next Arrival :o, also happy to get the Meißen branch and the new passenger system on SKA and Bakerloo. But I was really really excited to see a new German route today... Well, next time hopefully

    "Habbiins wagons - Removed unnecessary materials" - what?

    Also: How come no german route announced?

    Also: Will the BR 187 come with new freight waggons?

    And: Will the liveries for mastery be officially branded ones? For example there are countless DB BR 101 liveries in real life - will it be one of these? Or more like designed by DTG/community?

    Nice to see some new DLC coming soon. I can’t see me buying anything though, due to Sony’s add-on size cap on PS5 messing up the whole structure of the game. I’m glad that DTG are going to try a short-term fix and a long term fix, but as I can’t easily access stuff I already have, and will have to delete more to get Brighton this week, I just can’t warrant adding any more DLC to the game until it’s fixed, if that’s even possible. It’s just too much hassle. I’ll save myself a few quid too. Such a shame.

    I'm agreeing with Crazydash on this one. DTG could've made Sherman Hill a lot more unique with another locomotive that hasn't been in TSW2 yet (besides the SD70ACe of course). Not just another carbon copy-and-paste of the most common locomotive in NA that has already been done before.

    At least should do a widespread loco like the SD70M. UP owns over a thousand of them

    Well there's the SD70ACe, that's 1 new loco more than any of the recent routes had :D

    Confirms the West Cornwall route is not getting a retro HST or any other traction to represent the non Regional Railways services. :(

    Also no specific mention as to whether the save/load bugs are being addressed in any forthcoming update.

    Yes, that is technically one new loco for TSW. What I meant was two new locos that haven't been done for TSW yet. Now that would make this route very unique to run on.

    There are a few signalling fixes in the patch notes, maybe it helped some of them? I'm waiting for it to download and give it a run.

    So, is the Sherman Hill SD40-2 gonna be the same as the Cane Creek one, with non prototypical flashing ditchlights? Or is DTG gonna actually put work into it?

    Also, most if not all of UPs SD40-2s have since been rebuilt into SD40Ns. While Skyhooks SD40 number series reflects these units, they were still mislabeled SD40-2 on the cab.

    Overall nice roadmap.

    I would seriously like to highlight one particular bit that made me cheer.
    This can quite significantly help the variety in-game.
    [​IMG]

    Heritage units, ads, etc. And mastery would finally be a bit more than driving the route for two hours and suddenly "Oh... I got a scenery overlay... ok".

    Just, please! Have those be real liveries (within the realms of licensing) of course.
