    There's also one other thing on the Soldier Summit: Helper to Salt Lake City that needs to be fixed. The crossings from Provo to Salt Lake City are missing the whistle posts.

    Oh, and another problem with the U50 that needs to be fixed. Wheelslip when braking with the train brakes.

    A much needed optimisation update for the Pendo.

    Good stuff.

    Kinda held off on the Soldier Summit extension because of the issues mentioned. But I’m going to give it a little while longer. Hopefully something else will catch my attention before then.

    The Pendolino is something I do have, so hopefully when I boot it up later tonight, I’ll get to see some noticeable improvements.

    NOTICED BUG:

    The TASS once won't reset after pressing the reset button.

    How do you mean won't reset after pushing the button? Is that the alarm or the emergency brake application?

    Well, I don’t know what frame rate issue was addressed, because the Pendolino is seemingly worse than before. 15fps the whole time I ran it in a scenario. And there’s an alerter which I believe one of the above comments address which doesn’t reset. Maybe the update was pushed too early with fixes that were supposed to done that weren’t.

    The alarm, I've pressed "Q" and the button itself, but I have to go into emergency brakes for it to reset and it goes off literally about every 15 seconds, that's what led me to not driving it.

    The alarm can't be cancelled, the only way to cancel it is to slow back down below the speed limit/braking curve for next limit. The alarm will go off perpetually if you are 3.5mph above the limit or braking curve.

    Tried one of the scenarios and the fps still isn't the best but didn't run into any issues with the alarms.

    I don’t see where there was any improvement on FPS at all. In fact, it seems like it got a little worse. To me at least.

    I've only tried it the trent valley route so far so I'm not sure how the fps would be on other routes.
