    Might be fun. Wonder if they will do more than UK content, or provide community add-ons.

    Railroad AND Railway in the title, to mitigate confusion or cause it?

    The brief shot of the pannier tank sitting idle in the sunshine looked almost photo-real at first glimpse.

    I purchased it and then 35 mins later requested a refund.

    First time asking for a refund on Steam.

    Very basic at the moment, Steve. Couldn't see myself getting much use out of it at this early stage buddy.

    Bought myself OMSI 2 and a couple of DLC instead, as it has a 30% off sale.

    Yes, I was looking at OMSI2, will need to do a bit of research before taking the plunge. I also saw a motorbike simulator in the offing very soon, which looked quite good from the Steam prequel video, American Motorcycle Simulator, or, if you prefer, Hells Angels R Us, that might be something worth looking into in the future, riding around on a Hog wearing leathers and playing Darts in a pub, that does sound like fun.....

    Cheerz. Steve.

    I refunded OMSI 2, Steve - see my comments in the other thread.

    I remember an old motorcycle game called Road Rash but it was more of an arcade fighting/racing title than a simulation.

    Thanks for that Vern, I'll probably stick to my trucks for the time being, then.

    Real rider here (currently not riding due for real life reasons): The last great Road Rash game (Road Rash 3D on the PS1) was still probably the best real open-road biking game until Test Drive Unlimited came along. The fights in Road Rash, later on in the game, quickly dissipated as the races were so long (it had a huge semi-open world map that would generate point-to-point routes for you to follow) that you spent much of your time alone with the road.

    When TDU came out, it was a revelation as you could organize proper ride-outs and cruises, meeting up at a certain time and place and then just riding together and seeing where the adventure took you. Nothing since has quite captured this feeling, either, though I will concede I haven't played the spiritual successor to TDU by the same developers, The Crew.

    That American Motorcycle Simulator thing looks interesting, but I wonder how well it'll compare to just firing up GTA V and cruising around its huge, detailed, varied world. You can go to bars and play darts and get into fights and see strippers there, too... and when you tire of riding, you can head to the airport to try flying, or the docks to grab a boat, or even try out their pretty well modelled trucks! Nobody forces you to be a criminal. Heck, I probably spent ten times longer playing the LSPDFR mod where you play as the police (and deal with fairly realistic crime) than I did either of GTA V's single player story or online modes.
