    Hi!
    I am new to this Game and play it for Relaxing. Like the Idea... but habe some Questions.
    Grafiks is year behind... ok, i know that could be the Stile of these Kind of Games... but the Shadows of Objekt are generatet few meters in front of the Train? I have stuttering while driving and much more little issues that are not state of the art.
    Are there intensions to fix this?
    (Sorry.. English is not my main Language!)
    Greetings from Austria!

    Hello and welcome to the forum.

    Unfortunately there is no way to improve the game's graphics and performance on Xbox. If you play on Xbox One X, the framerate is somewhat better but there's still stuttering, and the graphics settings are low (shadows, draw distance, texture resolution). This is how the console can run the game. We will have to wait for the Series X to get better graphics and performance.

    The shadow thing is a bit annoying. I think its to do with draw distances, but it is really close to the loco on occasions....

    I've played tsw so much that when I got on a real train I was questioning where the autogen shadows were....

    I can't belive that this is a console Problem. Look at other Games with much more scenario and details. ... than i have to live with it. It's almost fun... ;)

    Thats where the differences from a Simulation and a regular game comes in. A Simulation like this game is doing a lot of background work which is mostly CPU heavy. The CPU´s on the current gen consoles arent that great. Thats why a game like this is suffering more than other games that can work around this more easily.

    The other thing is that DTG is a small team without a big publisher, Train Sims are kinda nieche and they dont seem to be highly experienced with Console development. That means they can spend less time and money on individual platform optimization. So there might be still some things they could do to improve the performance a bit (and they have already done quite a bit of optimization compared to the Launch Version to be fair) but it wont run on this Gen like it does on PC.

    Like the person above me explained it. Train Sim World is a simulation game which utilizes the CPU much more than other games (due to a lot of physics calculations, for example). The CPU in the current consoles (both Xbox One S/X, and PlayStation 4/Pro) is essentially the same old Jaguar architecture, originally designed for laptops. It's very slow, which means these consoles are not great at running such a game. This is why we get stuttering and low resolution. Thankfully, the next consoles will be very fast in this regard (Zen 2 CPU at 3.5-3.8 GHz) so we'll get flawless performance. :)

    Sorry guys... Forza Horizon, Forza 7, Elite Dangerous, and much more "Simulation" with brilliant Grafiks on the Xbox... A Trainsim cant need more Power to calculate than some of these Games...

    Forza Horizon, while beeing a fantastic game, isnt a Simulation. Forza 7 only needs to simulate one car on a much smaller track. If you compare PC Specs needed for TSW to the Consoles you will find out that the CPU on Console´s is the weak spot and it actually needs more CPU Power than some other games. Most of these games are done with a lot bigger budget and have way more resources to code around a lot of issues.
    Cant really compare MS funded Forza Games with DTG.

    Again, not saying they couldnt squeeze out more of the Consoles if they could devote the resources to it, butnot on the scale you would expect
