    I only get between 20 and 30 FPS with settings set to medium. Runs smooth though and is playable.

    That must be spectacular in 4K

    That's why I only went with the 6600k ..... it was a placeholder till the price drops on your Kaby Lake i7 over the summer then I'm gonna swap that into my existing 1151 mobo

    1080ti next

    Then a 1440p display ( I don't need 4K )

    I just love the comment that the thread should not have started in the first place!
    Still seems to be there... However the defence of the indefensible by certain elements at UKTS (Mr gptech in particular) is one of the reasons why I lost interest in the place and asked to cancel my account. They must all have a degree in barrack room lawyer practice (or been watching Better Call Saul) as every valid criticism is met with a snarky rebuttal. In particular the valid feedback about the physics being countered with, "It's only a simulation." Talk about appeasement.

    To dismiss an in depth critique offered by a real engineer/driver is pathetic, TBH.

    I do begin to wonder if a large percentage of the posters over there are DTG employees now running scared for their jobs.

    LOL Vern, its like a bunch of lawyers there !

    From what I understand Searchlight Simulations also offered help to DTG to develop sounds

    They were turned down ..... sigh

    TSWs sounds out of the box are not bad

    BUT

    Searchlight Simulations current sound replacement pack ( in the works ) sounds incredible

    Seems your account is still there, Vern. I've had enough after seeing that thread. Are they still worrying after the whe-who-must-not-be-named farce?

    My downloads are still there but my forum account was cancelled when I chose the pistol rather than the firing squad.

    Funnily enough that was over challenging the rose tinted view of Railworks (as it was then) and - probably my fault to an extent - allowing the red mist to influence what I posted.

    Historical posts still visible (probably over six years now!).

    But I'm all mellow and chilled now (honest!).

    100% agree Vern ....and sadly your last comment would seem logical but there's no blinder, head in the sand, stupid loyalty than the rantings of THE FAN? All criticism of the object of their love and affection is like a stab to their very own heart . The Utter stupidity of their rants is that those they attack are, if they were smart enough to think about it, actually ON THEIR SIDE?!!! For a country where gun ownership is mostly illegal we seem to excel in producing those who delight in "shooting themselves in the foot"

    Probably best not to veer too far OT with past events on another forum, but quite agree Geoff - denial a problem exists or making excuses for those responsible is just as bad as going overboard with criticism. At this point I'm sitting back and waiting to see what DTG actually do about it, enjoying using Run8, working on my route in TANE and thinking about following that with an MSTS "swansong" project.

    I understand a patch has been issued on Steam, you have to arrange the download yourselves by going into the Beta area and installing it yourself, it's another 2.90 GB installation, as I assume it's the same package all over again with the amendments inside.
