    And one of the sub-forums is Zusi 3 in English.

    For those wondering where "Zusi" comes from, it's one of the many contractions that Germans are fond of. ZuSi = Zug Simulator, i.e. Train Simulator.

    As of right now that equates to AUD$96.00, Steve......which leaves it on the shelf as far as I am concerned, unfortunately.

    As Vern mentions in his post regarding the use of the editors, previous experience with ZuSi 2 required a degree in astrophysics and a mastery of the German language, so even with the English-language manual it will be a challenge, I would imagine.

    No.....if it was priced around AUD$50 then it would be a definite buy for me but not at almost a hundred bucks.
    Jeeez!.....I've just been able to update Run 8 with a new route package for US$20 and a free addition of a couple of liveried locomotives.

    I'm with you all the way, Bruce, I doubt if I will buy it either when it gets released, however, if we wait for 4/6 months, it'll come round to Steam Sale time and we might be able to obtain it at a much more favourable offering, there's little we can do about the pricing structure of these independent developer's games they'll sell stuff at whatever market price they can currently get, the old, sick and the poor have to decide whether we can afford it, or, not!!!!

    Having effectively blown £55 on Trainz 2019 and regretting it, in no mood to repeat the experience. I'm sure Zusi 3 will be miles (km?) better than N3V's ongoing botch-up but the days of paying that much for a train sim are long gone. It will be £30 and no more, so waiting until sale time.

    Surprisingly Vern, TRS19 has grown on me and it is the only train game.

    That i have been using for the last month - six weeks or so.

    New beta test started today for Gold members. Trainz Plus Unified Driver-Surveyor, so i will have a look at that in a bit.

    The Zusi community(singular) works a bit differently to other simulators. All community and in-house created content is sent to a central coordinator who creates a monthly content update package which is installed through a utility distributed with the simulator.

    So you don't have to pick and choose what to download, every user automatically receives all content(owing to the simple graphics this won't tax anyone's hard drive), and the pain of hunting for/purchasing lists of assets and rolling stock just to get a scenario to run does not occur.

    Objections to the pricing seem more psychological than logical to me. The current data set includes around 10000 scenarios and 1400 vehicle/livery combinations. How much would it cost you to buy that amount of content for any other simulator?
