    I think what is on "sale" is due to TSW2 now being included in Game Pass(?) so small discounts will remain for some time?

    Sorry for the necro-bump, but the sales appeared to have dried up completely. I am keen to fill out the gaps in my Xbox TSW collection to get those layers working on the Rush Hour routes. Can we see some deals on the preserved routes please Dovetail? ;)

    What you mean the layers that they aren’t giving us?

    I wonder if they'd fix the texture and audio issues sooner if we all promised to buy routes at full price as soon as they do XD

    As far as I know the gen 9 consoles get all the goodies, but gen 8 have limited layers. It sounds unfair but it’s the reality of the age of the hardware. DTG are trying their best to accommodate this but at least you’re getting the routes and they’re not planning to drop support for the foreseeable future. Hopefully next year it will be easier for people to upgrade.

    I’m mainly looking for the older German routes to feed those layers.

    I mean, I suppose they COULD potentially enable the layers on last gen consoles.
    If people didn't mind playing in 480p or somesuch.

    LOL I don’t think it would make any difference as it’s the number of different vehicles that fill up the memory. For instance the ICE takes up a ton because it has many different coaches in one rake (This was divulged in a recent stream).

    Only thing that worries me is series s memory it's consider3d 9 gen and shares all layers with pc yet it has lower RAM and more suceptable to crashes

    On the latest stream Matt suggested that people could try to run the series S in performance mode instead of quality mode. Maybe that's a workaround that could keep frames up and crashes down for series S users.

    Doesn't solve the crashes on BML.
    I've only ever played on 60fps mode on Series S. Some services leaving Victoria it crashes with an out of memory message before even finishing the load screen.

    So getting back on topic, it would be nice if DTG threw a few preserved routes on sale so XBox Series players can flesh out the layers of the RH routes. I’m talking of those German and UK DLC which directly benefit Rieza-Dresden and London-Brighton.

    I know East Coastway and SEHS are useful, is there an 09 somewhere? Maybe WSR then. Not sure for the DE routes, maybe BR101, MSB and RSN? Anyone know the full list?

    Most of these had a recent sale shortly before RH released, so it may be a while.

    Maybe because it's in Game Pass?

    The annoying part with how MS' store works is that as long as it has the GP discounts active, for those of us without GP, we constantly have the message that "7 items from your wishlist are on sale" when those routes and locos show at the regular price for us.

    I suspect we cant have any real discounts while TSW2 is on game pass, its the one major flaw of game pass which overall has been very good.

    I don't know if I imagined this, but on Tuesday's stream I think someone asked Sam, "are sales coming for console" and he said "yes", firmly. It's a pretty broad question since it has no timeline or any distinction between PS and XBOX, but I still hold out hope!

    That was me who asked and I expected that I would not get a clear answer. Worth the try
