    I still don't see routes from most other countries happening, unless there is a willing operator who will grant DTG a license and willing to work with them or a 3rd party dev.

    For Britain, we, the Netherlands, should at this point be very doable I believe. Though I don't believe DTG actually travels in person to explore the route, but I'm not sure.

    Anyway, to answer, Netherlands should be fine :D

    That was before they said that. Matt and Sam said: ''We can make routes in other countries like the LGV, but than it could take 5 years for another route in those regions'' So DTG mainly will focus on UK, USA, Germany since they know the most of it and have more expierence with it and can release more of it in better quality.

    And they know it sells and gets semi decent reviews... The french route has been mixed because it's basically a long drag and a short drag. Very little else to do

    Well if their position has changed from what I noted to this, that should be reflected in DtG not telling people asking about new countries on streams to go to the suggestions section and propose their routes so that devs can then take that into consideration.

    Do they? I haven't seen them confirming they look at suggestions here, but if that is true, that's encouraging.

    Egypt Nile valley route with Class 66s on passenger. Great trains and scenery and a nice place for DTG staff to holiday!

    I'm pretty sure if somebody had said this in 1916 in response to a suggestion for an Irish route, you would - rightly - have a few words to say about the stupidity of the comment.

    I prefer Japan because they have good service and fast journeys and even they have fast bullet trains.

    Could you imagine if DTG did Japan we would get empty stations, imo they would not do it justice.

    Give me Japanese routes and I won't be complaining about that. Also, stations for many Japanese countryside routes are mostly empty, if devs go for that kind of addition.

    I defo heard Jasper from Rivet saying that he also looks into the forums. And you every now and then see Maik Goltz from TSG here. Also Skyhook has some threads in the forums. So all in all - 3rd party devs read the forums. And with that, also the suggestions.

    I learnt a few years ago what games companies say and what they actually do seems to be two different things. DTG do seem to interact with the forums more than most although I should say 'used to'.

    Agreed. Something from east Europe, or even ex-Soviet territory, would be rather different than our current selection of routes. I'd be up to see some unique architecture.

    Would've been nice, but even more unlikely now than it ever was, considering current events...

    I would like other European countries, like Austria, Switzerland (*), and France (*)

    (*) There are already some routes there.
    But in the case of Switzerland I would like something longer, and with bigger trains, like the Twindexx and some cargo too.

    About France we only have the TGV one. I would like "normal" trains, both passenger and cargo ones.

    Frankly speaking I would like from other parts of the world, but that will be much difficult due to DTG staff will have to travel, and learn about the corresponding system -including specific lights, and safety ones - plus extra costs.

    The main issue for me about routes, it must be "interesting to drive".
    I mean, at least more than one train, - passenger + cargo will be great - and have some challenges.
    The challenge can be the route itself, but also the timetables and scenarios.
    Going from point A to B directly or just stopping on some stations for most of the time (and timetables), is just boring.
    So they must be more interesting.

    We know DTG won't do other countries but then imho they do not have to, all they have to do is flush out existing routes with other stock. I can only speak for the UK and the amount of stock they have to choose from both old and new is staggering but we do not seem to see it.

    But like you said one of the biggest failings of DTG is where they have routes but one or two trains as standard. The Railways are busy in the UK, when they are not striking, so it would be good to see that reflected in game on all the other routes not just a couple. It would probably mean updating existing routes to TSW3 but if they can do it with SEHS then they can do it with the others but it all depends if they can be arsed or not.

    Japan. Because the scenery would look spectacular with a vast quantity of cherry blossom trees, and Japanese architecture.
    Breezing through the Japanese countryside into Tokyo at 200 mph.

    Poland
    Czech Republic
    Genrally mountain area between this two countries.
    Lot of possibilities to use steam, elecltrified and non-electrified routes.
    Guess actual state and something between 80-90s would fit great.
