    I'm liking the M3 and the scenarios that it comes with in each scenario there is a lot of AI traffic same with the M7 scenarios lot of traffic what's annoying is the lack of AI traffic in service mode absolutely dead very disappointed DTG you say realistic 24/7 timetable not true fulse advertising I must say very lazy :(

    Aka I know use will see this DTG and probably ignore it and probably don't care about the criticism that you receive rivet games does much better by listening to the community un like use

    Ik why its dead, Because the Hempstead services are based on real life except the ones from Penn......Irl Hempstead services run hourly to half hourly. 23 trains only stop at Forest Hills and Kew Gardens

    The M3 is very nice and detailed. But it has some issues that needs fixing. Refer to page 1 of this thread some people have already pointed it out. I still don't understand why Atlantic Terminal & Long Island City services still are not in service mode yet. I mean 8 or 10 car EMU's from Atlantic Terminal to Hicksville. Their also should be more Belmont Park services as well.
    I'm not here to rant just to point out certain issues with the route/trains.

    I'm not a fan of how they did the Belmont Park service with the layup outside Jamaica on the beginning of Babylon bound track smh.they shouldve added more service to fill that huge gap till like the 6pm time or i forgot in the gsme..Now as far as LI City goes yes that's another mistake but they couldve added if not the diesels, a trip to or from Hunterspoint Av I mean it does service a EMU or so from Huntington(am) and to Ronkonkoma(pm)

    I love the M3 Trains and the different livery options for them and the M7. But DTG not only needs to add services from Long Island City, they must populate Hillside Facility, Sunnyside Yards, and the yard beside Jamaica with some trains. They don’t need to be AI Trains but make it more realistic as the actual LIRR!

    Do Atlantic Terminal to Long Island City trains go via Jamaica? I’m wondering if it’s something to do with switching ends at Jamaica if that’s the case...?

    I can’t think of any other route s in TSW which involves this manoeuvre, that’s why I think they didn’t expand ECW from Eastbourne to Hastings as the driver I said required to change ends at Eastbourne. The only time we’ve had to do this is in scenarios off the top of my head.

    The EMUs don’t really go to LIC. It’s mostly the diesels that go there.

    They’ve got to add a Diesel that can go to Long Island city.

    True. However some of the electrics do travel along that branch. Long Island City also has a yard the diesels use this as well as some EMU's. I do remember seeing M7s and M3s running there as well. I understand why it may be hard how to add services to the route. But LIC and Atlantic terminal services to hicksville should have been in the game since the first day the LIRR was out. But I will give credit to DTG for an otherwise really cool and closely accurate route to real life.

    Hicksville handler scenario has a lot of AI traffic. There is actually a train that takes the branch out of Jamaica that heads for Valley Stream. The Hillside yard is full of units as well. The trip to Hicksville you pass numerous trains. This is the most realistic simulation. I only wish this was all the time

    My point was if they can do it in the journeys why not the regular timetables

    Another issue I have noticed is the wheel slip. While on max brake when charging if you go all the way up to power 4. The train glitches out and goes straight to 22mph great for a quick speed boost but very dangerous.

    Guessing now that TSW 2 is coming, the M3 bugs won't be fixed?

    DTG, please confirm or deny this.

    It's in the video last night. No further updates are going to be done to TSW1 DLC from release date, though trainsim-steve did say yesterday there are patches being worked on right now for some things which WILL be released before that date

    Here's hoping then that between now and the release date of TSW2 that fix as many of the bugs in the current content as possible. That would take the bite of that fact that after Aug 6 there is no more fixes issued for what they will be referred as Preserved Content.
