I think we all would like longer routes, I certainly would. However rather than ranting on here, try and look at it from a business owners point of view and the expenditure of running a business and producing content and from a profit and loss basis. You have to pay salaries, employer NI and pensions paid to HMRC, development costs, training costs, IT costs, business rates, rent of premises, service charges, business insurance, public liability insurance, travel costs, expenses on research trips, research material. All this needs to be costed in and the more frequent they release DLC the more it keeps cash flow coming in. Everything is built to a budget which is factored into the cost and development time, whether it is a house, a tube of toothpaste or digital content. They are a business and they need to make a profit otherwise the they stop trading, and they know how much they need to charge whether we/you/me like it or not, it is reality. TSW is far more detailed and complex than TS1, that is clear that is why we get 40 miles routes rather than 80 mile routes.
