    we all heard that train sim world 2 will probably have multiplayer thats what we were told but we are not sure because we haven't tested yet.

    if anyone knows anything like when or will or no, no multiplayer.
    tell what you think or when will it happen.

    i have to say it will change the view of train sim world completely.
    i don't mean better for all but a new experience in train sim world!

    new things are good right? or......................What you think?

    Not in a hurry to see the multiplayer.
    Rather the Raildriver, or the fixes on the sound or the baggage would be more judicious.
    This is only my point of view, do not murder me, the Covid will take care of it.

    Make the singleplayer part of the game working almost flawless first, then think about Multiplayer. Thats what I think.

    Multiplayer does not mean anything to me, it is just a buzz word. You may like to play with other players, but what will the game play be then? Until now I did not hear a lot on that.

    DTG is in the concept stage of this topic. Ultimately, in my opinion, this is an add-on without which the development of the game will not be possible in the long run ('audience'). I play train simulators with this option - great fun. However - in my opinion it is not a priority for TSW at the moment.

    I think if we ever do get a multiplayer, a lot of people will be disappointed. Given how temperamental the dispatcher currently is, I can't see how it would cope with large numbers of players all driving trains and all doing out of the ordinary things.

    If we do ever get anything, I can see it being more of a co-op style of play for 2-4 players, with perhaps one player being designated at the start as a driver and the rest as passengers..

    Me personally would only want the small co-op option, maybe up to 8 max so you could bring your friends into your game an vice versa.

    In short, DTG has been talking about it internally but AFAIK nothing has come out of it yet. A competitor is scheduled to launch a new product with multiplayer in Q3 2021 so that should increase DTG's interest in having it too. Keep in mind that DTG needs to take into consideration how multiplayer relates to previously released content, so even if they want to have multiplayer it might not be possible at this time.

    In any case, do not expect it anytime soon since it is not even in the roadmap yet (if it ever gets to be in it). If it ever comes, it is at least 1 year away.

    Have to say I can't see the great appeal of multiplayer in a transport simulation. I've tried it in MSFS (20) but there is no interaction, just the sight of other players' aircraft with a name tag attached. It's also a free for all on the runways and taxiways where player aircraft just pass through each other.

    I suppose if you had a setup like Run8 with a "live" despatcher/signaller and strict discipline on behalf of the drivers there is some satisfaction to be had, though never tried it myself. You also need to have a contingency for how the AI (or another player) takes over if either the signaller or a driver has to suddenly drop out of the session.

    Hopefully not for some time to come. There are FAR more important areas that need attention first.

    As with all multiplayer games, the idea sounds nice but the reality will be a mess of idiots ruining it for other people. It's life, and other than locking it down to the point that it's not worth it in the first place, the only other option open would be a sort of VATSIM for TSW. That would be cool at some point, but it really isn't needed at the minute.

    It is enough that you can play with your friends. Nobody expects an MMO game.
    No worries. The matter of choosing friends :)
    I also feel Sam has a plan.

    The colonel is definitely cooking something up with that posting, my spidey senses went crazy after reading it, we just have to figure out what he's up to?? Lol

    I feel like 2 player co-op could work for North Anerican based routes where switching is involved, one person is the engineer, the other is the conductor.

    Any interaction. Even outside of multiplayer, e.g. highly improved community challenges.
