    Quote from Train Sim Central
    BVE is a Direct 3D Japanese Cab View train driving simulator, made in Japan by Mackoy. It offers a realistic cab view, excellent sound, and very good train physics. My favourite feature is the simulation of sway around curves, rocking whilst braking, and the bump of pointwork and rail joints. As a cab view sim, it doesn't get more realistic than this!

    Although originally limited to Japanese routes and trains, there is now extensive English language support, and routes and trains available from just about every continent in the world.

    And my thoughts of BVE

    BVE is a cab view simulator, kinda simular to Microsoft Train Simulator, except without the internal views, and no switching...etc...etc. The sounds in BVE destory what MSTS can do (yes i am serious) The bumping, rocking back and forth at the station, simulating passengers boarding, Flange squeal, braking, station sounds, dispatcher talking, working signals, etc etc... I won't say it all, that'll spoil the rest of the game. If you have a high-end computer, check out http://www.crotrainz.com This is like the main "hub" for BVE news, along with Microsoft Train Simulator, Black 5, Trainmaster 4, etc. here are some other websites...

    http://mackoy.cool.ne.jp/ BVE's Offical website - also where you can download the latest version

    http://www.railsimroutes.co.uk/ This has the best routes for BVE I have seen to date. Beautiful scenery, extremely high detailed, excellent sounds... ahhh heck, just look at the website :P

    http://www.trainsimcentral.co.uk/ If you like UK rolling stock and such, go here, it is a must. Also featuring the London Underground Line (LUL)

    http://members.aol.com/bvehelper/ A English guide to help beginners out with BVE, also look at BVE Help at Train Sim Central.

    hope this helps

    Hi Activitamin,

    Sadly, you can not, but maybe in the future. However, go to the BVE Help site, they have actually have an answer to that.
