    Oh dear.....this from a disappointed buyer (posted on Steam today):-

    ================================================== ===
    Posted: 26 August

    - The signaling is a mess and as far from the real world as it could be
    - There is no AI on the tracks. Everything "AI" (heavy quotes there) are spawned events
    - Max speed is 120kph
    - The map and the game has so many errors that I literally cannot play the game for more than 30 minutes before getting annoyed/frustrated
    - The Wheel Slip "simulation" is a joke
    - The physics are either nonexistent or a joke
    - The random spots that WILL derail you still exist, even way below posted speed limit
    - Passenger handling is a hit or miss - and I mean whether or not the station you just arrived in will work is like 50:50
    - No mod support - so 0 ways to improve or fix the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
    - No controller support other than gamepads - full controller support was promised
    - The sounds are a joke, slapping an FMOD logo to your menu does not a good sound environment make, you'd actually have to try

    Honestly, after a year of early access, this could have taken another year and probably be half decent. I don't feel like many bugs were fixed or that any feedback was taken into account - like 0 ♥♥♥♥♥ given, this is our game, deal with it.

    Don't believe anyone that says that this is ETS/ATS but for Trains. It is not. It is a cheap, not very good, chinese copy of a mobile game that tries to act like ETS, but falls short in almost every aspect.

    I bought it because of Squirrel, very early into EA, because it looked good. And honestly - look good, from afar, is the only thing the game has going for it.

    At least the price is almost right.

    I was into this for a little while (I think it was from one of you guys first mentioning it or perhaps I showed it). Honestly I don't know what it's at now as I did buy it early access a while back and haven't touched it.

    The concept is interesting but I think it looses it's way in trying to be too much like an ATS type thing for trains.

    I really have no comment on where it's at now as I don't bother with it. I guess it's wasn't enough to keep me interested.

    Thanks

    Sean
