    I'm sure it will get revived every couple of months as mrchuck digs up all the old LIRR-related threads to ask for the DE/DM30AC or Port Jefferson branch again

    We came close to the record of 11 pages on this thread. Clearly a lot of people love the LIRR route even me. Hopefully with all of this support more trains will release for the LIRR to complete the route, Like the Peninsula Corridor in California.

    No offense, but... does it really show anything if half the messages are yours?

    I'm hoping in the future they'll correct the brake release & emergency sounds because with what the stream currently shows, it's the same audio file from the M7.

    Pretty much the exact same sound the cosmopolitans make in TS2020

    Just because I post a lot does not mean anything. If I enjoy this content I can post as much as I want. There are many other people who have posted as well. I know it is not being rude but who cares if most of the messages are mine. Any thread has support even if they have a lot of posts by 1 person. I tried to keep the support up for this train, I love this train. So I would consider my post informative and very engaging at times.

    Simply I know I have posted a lot I will try to post less. But saying if it shows anything if I posted a lot is ignoring the fact that others had posted here as well. I don't talk about you posting a lot because you have been here a while. So please don't say if the thread says anything because of me posting a lot.

    Also people like the content I post look at my like ratio it is not bad so that is motivating me to post more. Otherwise thank you for the heads up.

    However what they did in the secnarios. You will now see m3s in all M7 secnarios. This blew off guard big time

    You are not the first serial poster we have had here and I doubt you will be the last....so post away my friend.

    I for one have enjoyed all your posts on the M3. It is interesting to read thoughts from real life drivers...and I look forward to future posts from you on how this digital representation compares to the real deal.

    Its also refreshing to read posts from someone who is positive / enthusiastic about TSW. It makes a nice change from the constant negativity you see alot around here

    Nothing wrong with posting alot. I am similar. I post where I think I have a good opinion or can offer some insight or knowledge. I am glad that you first hand experience on the M3's and that can gives some of us an idea of how they work. This thread is definitely alive and I am looking forward to the M3. I am just glad we are getting something new for the LIRR route :D

    I’ll add this here, it’s a quote from tonight’s stream from Matt...

    “There are no plans to extend Long Island Rail Road”

    And with that, I declare the thread unofficially dead. Enjoy the M3 everybody.

    I think it looks great. Some sounds are reused and i dont blame them because they couldnt go out to NYC cause of whats going on. Personally i think it looks great

    Listen kid, open a dictionary and learn what bullying means before saying that to me. Then this is a forum where everyone expresses his thoughts so mine ( like others ) is that half of posts here are by him and sometimes 2 or 3 in a row

    I feel like the passenger carriages are way too bright on the M3. Look at this comparison between RL and TSW (both on clear weather conditions).
    I think the lights need to be dimmed a bit. :)

    I feel like this is applicable to pretty much every train in TSW. For some reason they always seem overly bright and light isn't really spread out well. Just a big bright spot of light across the ceiling.

    It looks like the very limits I thought were holding Train Sim World back will be broken with Unreal Engine 5.



    I REALLY hope DTG are thinking towards the future.

    There are really not new M3 services and the only change is that now we will can run the M7 services (the old LIRR dlc services) using as our preference M7 or M3 emu? In other words, is real that with M3 addon the volume of trains traffic on LIRR route its still the same? (eg 60 services in total if we got only M7 dlc and ever 60 services in total if we got both, M7 dlc + M3 addon)

    If there's one thing that DTG does very well, its the train modeling, especially the exterior! The M3 actually looks fantastic and well-detailed, most of the stuff that should be there, is there! The fact that the train bounces around quite a bit and has a bit of a jolt when adding power really adds to the immersion, I'll have to give the devs some kudos for that!

    That being said, my only real gripe with this DLC is that the LIRR still feels kind of empty. This is one of the busiest commuter railroads in the America's, there should be plenty of action going on especially in New York Penn and Jamiaca stations. I wish DTG would've done some performance improvements to allow for at least a few extra trains during peak hours.

    As much as I absolutely love the M3 and all the work that's gone to it, as a consumer I'm not really convinced to get this for its base price of $20 USD. You're only getting one train, 3 brand new scenarios, and a few other minor changes here and there. Theres just not that much play value that this adds. I'm not really convinced of buying this yet, unless there's a sale going on, in which case I would definitely consider buying it!

    Well done Dovetail on this DLC, but I just wish there was a little more effort done to make the world feel just a bit more alive!

    Just watched Matt's recent live stream and as he's approaching Mineola he still gets the same old faulty ATC drop with a proceed at medium signal.

    I just don't get how you guys can get fully immersed in this "sim" when there are so many bugs.

    Do the developers actually listen to our feedback or what??

    Not quite.....it's not available for Steam yet. The DLC always goes out a little earlier on the consoles due to MS/Sony release schedules

    Yes, the Playstation store normally publishes DLC first, followed by MS Store slightly before the Steam release. Same deal with game updates....the Playstation users got that latest update yesterday (with the 6/8/10 car set change in the UI).....I only just got that update this morning

    One last question from me before the M3 gets officially released. How are your thoughts on the M3 before it is officially released? Based on the stream. I would love to hear your honest answers.

    Mine are below
    Based on the stream Matt previewed the M3. The LIRR M3 add on is visually amazing and DTG nailed the exterior. The only part of the DLC that I found out to be bad was the sounds. The door closing sounds are a bit too long but they sound amazing hearing the bell. This is very accurate to real life. As for the doors opening it sounds like it was copied from the M7. But I will stop the nitpicking here. As for the M3 I think it is an amazing train DTG recreated. It's not perfect but it is very accurate in certain aspects. The interior cab is very detailed as shown by Matt. Some lighting issues may exist but that does not bother me. However I can't confirm if the master controller works the same way it works in real life yet. Also I don't think the door physics were added with the cab.

    Overall the LIRR M3 looks really good and I am definitely looking forward to it.
    Thank you all for me and my informative posts about the M3 over the past 3 weeks. I'm putting a close to this thread for me as this will be the last post I will make here on this thread before the M3 gets released. We all should let this thread die off when the M3 comes out tomorrow. It was amazing hearing all of your opinions

    Thanks DTG dev team & Matt
    Have a great day railfans!!!
