    Great DLC so far. Loving the 323 audio. The route looks dope, very detailed. Good Job to the team. Should be the standard of quality, moving forward.

    Not gonna lie, it looks really good, but after WCML-S I think I'll wait a week, if reports are generally favourable I'll just sneak in at the end of the TLO.

    Is there any particular reason why the US prices for routes on TS are $39.99 RP and for TSW are $29.99 RP? The price in £ are exactly the same at £24.99 for both TS and TSW.

    I can’t understand the negative comments regarding the sound on the Steam Store page. It sounds great to me. On last night’s stream the guest (sorry, can’t remember his name) said that they were spot on and he works on the trains. I think he also said he recorded the sounds himself.

    The sound cuts out multiple times as you accelerate and I think as you decelerate too. And the running sounds are quite basic. Just go on YouTube and type in "class 323 sounds" and listen for 3 minutes and you'll see just how complex the real sounds are. DTG made an OK attempt, but quite simplified and a bit buggy. The gaps definitely need fixing.

    The gaps could be down to a simple error in the scripting, one wrong or mistyped character and that particular sound file gets missed out, hopefully that's all it is and it gets fixed.

    Would love this in TSW2 there isn't a British Route on TSW2 with overhead lines.
    Maybe the Cross City routr could be it.
    Please,Pretty Pretty Please.

    Is there any possibility of fixing the sound bugs (spaces between audio samples and sounds lasting longer then the users input) and possibly get Soho TMD so we can have a depot to operate ECS's from?

    Firstly I would like to say great job DTG! After a few hours spent playing this when it came out last night. Its great to see TS Classic getting more content than of recent times.

    One big thing I noticed was the sounds of the 323, to me it seems an issue with scripting perhaps?

    The ground textures seem very low quality which is excusable on the track but not in the car parks of stations. The modelling of stations is in my opinion spot on some have amazing detail, especially Bournville.

    Regards.

    Shift + W for the Master Key, and then Y for the DRA (this is the most common one to cause that)

    I wouldn't jump to conclusions about that without thinking about it. GWE has overhead lines and so does SEHS

    Thanks for that, although im ashamed to admit i havent a clue what DRA is :)
    I've managed to remove the brakes, and get it in forward but apply power, nothing happens, well apart from slowly rolling backwards! :(
    I don't usually have this much trouble with this game!

    The DRA = Drivers Reminder Appliance (basically it's a button (or switch) that you press in the cab that prevents the train from taking power (it's a red glowing one) - it's used when the signal is red - to make sure the driver checks the signal) - Pressing Y turns it off usually.

    Driver’s Reminder Appliance - basically an extra safety thing to switch off, esp when starting with a red expected ahead.

    With AP and some of DTG pro trains, you’ll need to do Ctrl N for the AWS change end switch.

    With the master key, some you can turn with the mouse, some need Ctrl W, and think there’s one or two (AP Class 40?) that need E.

    But if a train doesn’t move, you can be sure it’s something like this!

    A great route with plenty of detail and looks great. The only thing is those 323 sounds, the cutting out of sounds, the annoying run sounds that you get after 25mph and not other sounds. Maybe could DTG look into any improvements they could make themselves or are we just going to have to wait for someone like AP for an EP...

    After currency conversion and accounting for VAT, this is 39% more expensive in Australia than in the UK. I'll pass thanks.

    I Have rights, and who knows Maybe i have TS 2021 And have bought and Played the X City line On this game and all i want is my Local route in a Better quality , Better Views on Seats and able to see a lot more of New street, Huh.

    [I Have done all the above btw]
    And in my opinion, why are you so sad to report a post that i have been wanting a DTG Staff member look at my post, and others about this same suggestion, take into consideration that this route would be a lot better suited in TSW than TS 20xx

    To try to be more constructive, any suggestions for routes should be put into the Suggestions forum (on the TSW forum in this case).

    It really is sad and pathetic that someone would be so bothered about a comment regarding TSW2 on a TS20xx page that they feel the need to report it rather than just scroll on and ignore it like most others do, its a shame there are them that seem to enjoy acting like a child but never mind, i too hope this route comes to TSW2

    Alright, for the sake of peace keeping, could y'all NOT argue on an announcement thread? I mean c'mon. This ain't the place for a bunch of senseless back and forth bickering and nitpicking. It's immature. If someone posts something about TSW2 in a TS forum, and it puts you off that much, don't go make a post that has the possibility of sparking a flame war. Instead, just report it, and then ignore it. If you REALLY gotta say something about it, just be courteous with it and say, "This is the TS Classic forum, you'd be better off over in the TSW forum.", and give 'em the link to the TSW forum. What not to do is this:
    That's just rude, immature, and foolish.

    You're entitled to use the forums as anyone else is within the terms of usage, but nobody is automatically entitled to a response from staff for an opinion piece.

    You'd be best placed drumming up support on the TSW forums, instead of wasting time arguing and telling porkies (you say here that you have TS2021 and in the other thread you say you don't have it).

    DTG are obviously interested in the West Midlands atm (and the two WM routes for TS look like they both did okay for sales at launch) and they have some reference materials. Perhaps a WM route is under construction for TSW. These things take time and are not announced until close to the release date.

    You would think when DTG create the Manual for a route and train then there should be information on how to drive the train.
    This manual has a few pictures with numbered items and a list of what the items are

    No information about a Master Key, how to Switch the DRA off or even how to isolate the DVD.

    Natalie, Just saying, is it classed as Off-topic when you say I Would like this Route in TSW as just a simple comment and then the community becomes toxic and then they target you?

    Are you not going to comment on all the negative reviews about the sounds regarding the class 323 then? your not going to acknowledge you guys have released something that shouldn't have got through quality control, again? and at least reassure us that there is a fix in the works to fix the sounds? or are you just going to ignore the issues? this comment is very much on topic as it is regarding this addon. the model is great the route is great but the sounds ruin the whole experience.

    I doubt it, that's more Sam's area of expertise. Natalie seems more comfortable just closing threads.
