    This thread seems to have run its course.

    Feel free to continue the discussion in the Other Simulators thread. I may peel a couple of posts out to get that started.

    If we have enough interest in terms of topics and participation, creating a dedicated forum for SimRail is not out of the question.

    Well I did have a crash tonight. My son reminded me that I actually had a crash before. Honestly it happens so few times that I hardly remember and it's not a big issue for me.

    Tonight I'll d a live stream in SimRail for those that do appreciate the sim and I will show how much enjoyment you can get out of this sim. It will be in about 2 hours so that should be in the middle of a server reset cycle.

    I don't agree with everyone's ideas. There are some servers that like to do role plaing and creating diversions like there is construction or something. I'm against that and a slight majority agree. I can see as a driver not being so kind to being delayed when trying to keep on schedule and purposely set at a speed of 20KMH due to a role play. Now if it just happens to get backed up in legitimate traffic, then it's perfectly good.

    But most don't dispatch that way from what I can tell, and I will be dispatching tonight. Perhaps tomorrow night I'll take a run. There are PLENTY of servers available where hardly anyone is on. The servers now reset every 6 hours from what I understand. Plenty of time to have the same experience you would get in single player.

    For an early access sim it is pretty damm good.

    Thanks

    Sean

    I haven't been back here in years, come to read some news about the game and find that two old jokers just hijack the thread to take the piss between each other like direct messages.

    Anyways, there is a lot of promise in the game, IMO.

    Haven't played the game in nearly two weeks. Setting up loco in SP and the damn game crashed on me.

    First you couldn't save it, now you can't even play it.

    Just to try to steer this conversation into what is positive.

    Looking at the sample size there are 552 Mostly Positive reviews on Steam. You could say that doesn't mean anything because TSW3 has Very Positive over 1400. But to that I would say that's fairly impressive on a franchise that has been around a long time and had a "chance" to improve. So the numbers itself doesn't mean anything but the ratio and the current rating (trust me there is so called EA trash that make it and get horrible ratings compared to this). That ratio despite a slightly less favorable review is telling.

    Just like polls not everyone wants to share their opinion. Most people who already have done their homework may avoid both products. But considering the comparison between the two I think they're doing just fine. They are likely going to get weaker sales out of North America due to the unfamiliarity of what European trains are like or enjoyed.

    Thanks

    Kind of like dragging a dead horse? Perahps that is why you like it so much. Perhaps I should get the dust off my Commodore 64 (the monitor still works to this day) and see what I can drag out of the past, or drag dislike for a certain sim on and on

    I've never had issue what the fine people of OR does. Not everything goes to plan especially with development and testing. Vast majority of people on that forum don't seem to care. If they want that market then they'll find the way, if not so be it.

    BTW I could care less who's ignore lists I'm on, or who is on my list. As long as I'm not offended or attacked (which I'm not I'm amused) I'll still I think it perfectly healthy that peple are not happy with a product and obviously shoud post it here. Going on and on about it helps nobody decide.

    Parting comment. Charity and volunteering has always been great especially when you can get tons of people. But there is a reason why socialism never works (despite the good intensions). The free market is there for a reason you either buy or you don't it's simple.
    Anyways I'm not going to say anymore about what all that means, look it up.

    Thanks

    Well, there were several consecutive posts by Sean today in which he cut & pasted a list of updates as issued by the SimRail hierarchy.
    Hahahahahahaha, so is SMRY. I see no reason at all to cut any software developer slack. They decided to go into business, they decided to charge money for their wares. That goes for any developer. Particularly in this hobby, where they expect to get away with any dubious practice they decide on. Plenty of people make free addons for the various train games. They get my undying gratitude, for anything and everything they make available. I do not particularly like the graphics in Open Rails. But those boys have done wonders, to drag the MSTS stuff out of the 1990's and enable them to be used in a superior game format. Oh and all for FREE.

    Mike.

    Just a few minutes ago, as a matter of fact, when I decided to respond to your jibe instead of my original decision to ignore it.

    But then, you see I'm not attempting to run a business developing and selling computer entertainment, so my change of heart has no effect whatsoever on encouraging others to spend money on my product.

    Sorry but I see no reason to cut a company charging £30 for a retail product too much slack. Once again we see the train sim Stockholm Syndrome at work. They are a business with a product, nothing more, nothing less. The lead up to release was hyped to hell then suddenly the product was downgraded to early access and once we saw through the lack of transparency it became obvious the single player game was and remains pretty much an afterthought.

    Just to clarify, I don't dislike SimRail and I will be following it closely with the hope it eventually evolves into a game worth playing. But at present I get the vibe there is no real plan, the devs are firefighting previously unseen bugs while at the same time scrabbling round to get features working that should have been in there on Day 1.

    That killed any likelihood of me buying the sim.
    Well, give it time the save feature may still come about. If they decide not to offer such a feature, so be it. Perhaps, they've changed their minds / plans. When was the last time you changed your mind? I would venture a guess "often" judging by your Purchase & Return announcements throughout TS. Anyways, spend that money on something else, better yet, save it for a rainy day.

    Geez cut the SR devs a break. Just getting underway, still developing features, tweaking present product, without doubt introduce others along the way. Gotta start somewhere. I believe they've done a fine job thus far. "No Man's An Island". Perhaps the "Dynamic Duo" could jump onboard teach them how it's done? Should such a perfect product hit the market, perhaps, I could be persuaded to buy in. Anyways I still loves ya. Grumpy O'l Men need to stick together.

    Well since you're refering to certain people braindead on another forum and bringing your dirty laundry over here, let me set the record straight. I follow the forum and it's much more civil and open to free thought. Yes I've blocked at least 1 person and apparently a different person has blocked me. The way you paint the picture is as if everyone is scared and that there is this big conspiracy theory against single player.

    Let me set the record straight while you trash somethign that doesn't suit your needs while you talk about ales and hijack yet another thread with your back and forther batter that belongs in the kiddie section of Discord or TiKTok instead of grown men (not bitter old men) having a discussion about the pros and cons of a product.

    SimRail is clearly not focused on single player. Nobody forced you guys to spend time, or pay anything, that is on you. If you bought something on the hope of something or that you could push something in your direction because you have swagger, than your as foolish as you sound right now.

    I haven't chcked the update as of yet, but there are plenty of them. They have talked about bringing in a better single player system. Something if I undersand correctly is supposed to be more AI based than activity based (but to be honest I haven't followed much more of the conversation, nor do I expect any changes).

    The AI is what they have been focusing on as well as trying to get more signal boxes because they are in demand right now. For the most part the MP is working fine. The rumors of trolls could very easily be inexperienced users and as others have pointed out the majority of the issues is AI being overloaded in certain circumstances.

    I don't know what the rating of SimRail is right now, last I checked shortly after release was mixed. There are still plenty of bugs, but it is very playable and has plenty of activity in it right now. If it wasn't playable or enjoyable then servers wouldn't be filling up like the ones in Poland (for obvious reason more popular than the English) and even the English servers are doing pretty good.

    I was accused of trolling the TSW thread and I was only there to voice my displeasure but not go on about any off topic crap. I was told if I didn't like it why am I in that forum here on TS still talking about. Well here's the mirror looking right at you kids.

    Thanks

    Sean
