I hate how everyone has now adopted the use of the word movie, instead of film.

Getting back to the subject of the 'other sim' before this thread goes wildly off course. I've stopped using it, although the driving experience is generally far superior, I got tired of how I was getting less and less for my money with every addon.

It won't be long before you buy something like a Class 377, but you have to pay £20 seperately for each carriage.

Very diplomatically put!

Reading elsewhere the TSW beta seems to be getting about 50% for and 50% against, probably best to wait and see what the finished sim is like before getting too excited. ;)

Which I suspect some of those who jumped in head first to TMR17 are now wishing they had done.

Seems to me when it comes to Railway Simulators some expectations, due to the hype you get from all game producers, are way higher than what is realistic to expect and as is usual many have no idea what a proper beta really is.

I agree, very diplomatically put. These forums are no a place to express any personal view on such positions, the British Trainz forum has been a very civilised and well mannered placed to discuss Trainz related matters irrespective of creed, colour , religion or race and long should it so remain.

Regards to all members.

If anyone wishes to obtain a bit of extra content, TS2016 is currently part of a Humble Bundle, which you can pick up for $1 (along with two other games) until 7pm tonight. It will add all the DLC from the full edition of that game (Sherman Hill, Cologne-Koblenz, Riviera Line...) to your steam library.

I don't use TANE at all for driving as I find it such a disappointingly unrealistic experience. The Other Sim wins this one for me but probably also helps that most of the cabs are very well reproduced. I am still a very long way from covering all the scenarios too so much for me still to drive and I only buy DLC during the sales.

I agree with you on value for money, some of the offerings are very light on scenarios or features.

From what I read online, it looks like TSW is suffering from some of the same issues we encountered with TANE being released far too early though I suppose it is a beta. Not that I'm making excuses and I'm not prepared to jump in at this time. US content doesn't particularly appeal to me.

In my opinion, the "other sim" has always been more polished as far as graphics, sound and driving experience go - but Trainz wins in every other aspect.

Trainz is just so much more user friendly. Building a route and re-skinning in Trainz is simple - whereas on the other sim, everything seems to be a right ballache.

They've extended the trial by 2 days and released an update to try and cure some of the CTD's .

As for me I've still not flicked those circuit breakers as I've not run the Sim since my previous post ! I honestly haven't felt like running it , If it had been a British route with British trains then I'd have probably been all over it like a rash , but instead I've been having my rail sim fix from route building in good old TS12 ;)
