Hi all, as we know TSW is not the only DTG product on the market. Many players will be familiar with the Train Simulator (formerly Railworks) franchise. For me personally TS has only one big advantage over TSW (with TSW fitting me better in pretty much all other aspects): the variety. As you can tell from the amount of suggestions in my signature below I'm interested in quite a lot of routes, locos and new (or still little explored) countries. In TSW I'll probably have none of the routes I suggested anytime soon, but many are in TS, or TS has a route/train that is comparable. Take for example my two '90s Germany suggestions (the Saalebahn and the Main-Weser-Bahn, please do check out both ). These two routes, with all suggested rolling stock (including DLC) would for me totally satisfy the demand for rolling stock from this era. And guess what? All locos and rolling stock are available in TS (not the routes though), but the chances of them all being in TSW within the coming 5 years are small to say the least. A picture from my Saalebahn in the '90s suggestion. Then there's Dutch routes, something I and many other community members have been wanting a lot for a while now. Again Dutch routes and a lot of Dutch rolling stock is available in TS (including sections of the routes I suggested), but most of it is player-made content or at the very least 3rd party content, with a lot of dependencies on other DLC. A Dutch ICMm, from my Enschede - Amersfoort CS suggestion Now these are just two examples, but there are many more (likte the ECML & WCML in the UK, Hamburg - Hannover and Köln - Koblenz, all paired with a virtual ocean of trains and coaches). I know that TS is a way older game, and has had over a decade to accumulate all it's content, however it seems TSW doesn't have nearly the same pace as TS. Someone could probably do the maths, but I don't think that TSW at it's current rate will have as much content variety in 10 years as TS does now. That probably makes some of you think 'why doesn't he just play TS then???'. Well, for me TSW is clearly the superior game, and I really can't get into TS again after it. This begs the question how we can achieve the same amount of variety in TSW? (preferably within the forseeable future). Sadly this is not a case where we can just do what TS did, giving the editor to everyone, as DTG has already stated that licensing makes that near impossible for TSW. Besides that, I also wouldn't like player-made routes to have the same amound of dependencies as in TS. All in all I think it might genuinely be impossible to achieve TS quantity with TSW quality, unless the development process (by hiring more employees, autogen tools, etc.) gets quicker and more effecient. Perhaps some additional 3rd party studios (already known for TS) will cooperate with DTG on TSW content in the future. Also some simple things like more liveries for existing locos could help increasing variety a little. All in all I really hope the variety of content will increase soon as it is TSW's largest shortcoming in my opinion. After all, I do think all the suggestions I made so far would all be fun additions to TSW that would sell well (except Köln-Wuppertal and Riesa-Leipzig, which rely on route mergers to be interesting in my opinion). Of course I'm a bit biased because I made a lot of suggestions which I'd like to see, but I really think no player would have an issue with the variety of content available getting larger, and that many also see the lack of variety as one of TSW's largest shortcomings.
