    Default Introducing ZDSimulator v4.9.8

    New version has been released

    In our latest update for ZDSimulator v4.9.8 we fixed a number of bugs that caused crashes, so the simulator is much more stable now. Also ChS4KVR models were updated, making the locomotive look better both from inside and outside. This means the existing addons for ChS4KVR won't work though, they'll need an update as well. Pause feature has been added: upon pressing Escape in-game time no longer goes by. Some addiotional changes and updates were made, including new 32 bit color depth option.

    We also have plans to introduce French localization of the simulator. French language and font compatibility will be added in future versions. We will share more information closer to its release.

    As always we recommend everybody to update to v4.9.8 (direct download link). Should you have questions or issues feel free to send us an email: [email protected]

    You will also need to update your activation key as your authorization codes will change with the new version. You can request a key using our webform or write us an email (include your new authorization code)! Please note that reply times might be longer than usual due to large amount of new downloads.
