    No idea what checkpoint based, means. Sounds like a fudge to me, so they can stick it.

      The list does not include ..... bug-fixes
      Does that mean that you are not working on fixing bugs or that you are fixing them but haven't included that on the list?

        They are fixing bugs, Bruce. As long as they are MP bugs of course

          Just guessing but I think they have predetermined points where a save would roll back to. Not a bad idea, actually, because you can flush out events from memory.

            Still means you always have to play to certain points on a route though buddy.

            Which is not always convenient.

              Agree that as a user it's not convenient to have to reach a certain point in the game to be able to resume it later.

              As a developer, I can see how they might see checkpoints as a compromise that can be quickly implemented.

              And... that's assuming I'm reading what they meant by checkpoint correctly.

                Agreed.
                I don't like games which have "Make it to here and you can Save!" as the method.

                Quick saves are the way to go, as a minimum: each save does so on top of the previous save. No accumulation of saves, only ever the one.

                  Fair points Eric, maybe they are incapable of an on the fly save system.

                  No i don't either Bruce, i like auto saves which you can set intervals for in the setup options.

                  Backed up with a manual save option, by the player.

                  Quite a few games i own use that system buddy.

                    Really depends how they base the checkpoints. If it's station calls then you might still be limited if the time between stations exceeds what you have available. They could be going down the Snowrunner route of having a time interval save but really in this day and age there is no excuse for any game claiming to be a simulator not offering an unrestrained save system.

                      Yup needs to be player controlled really. I was just running in MP, with auto pilot. Seems to be a hell of a lot of the route, that is just trees and bushes etc at line side.

                        It's been a while since I played it but come to think of it, unless all those big stations are located miles from the population centres they serve, they do seem to have gone a bit Run 8 so far as scenery is concerned.

                          Gone Run8 as far as no collision properties for loco's and rolling stock as well Vern.

                          But at least i can sit in the seats correctly using the external camera (key 2). Unlike the dumb angles that key 4 camera gives.

                          Piccies are taken with Reshade installed and pre-set used from their forum (user created). To be honest i don't think the preset does much.

                              They need to sort out SP and all the bugs. Before throwing new content at their game.
