    Default SimRail

    Switcher on my Discord sent me this link. I looked for some more but considering most of this is in Polish I had a hard time understanding. This however was an English YouTuber.

    Usually passenger stuff is not my thing (though there are some freights). I'm more curious about the signal boxes as they appear to be very interesting.

    I requested access for the play test but the actual sim is coming out in about 5 weeks.

    Thanks

    Current playtest is for multiplayer only.

    I had signed up previously but when I tried to get on the English server yesterday evening, it dropped after 6 seconds then wouldn't reconnect. Going to try again shortly but not initially encouraging.

    Single player testing unlocks on 21 December, from what I've heard.

    After a tussle with the servers I eventually got on yesterday evening. Not bad, but still seems far from finished at least in terms of polish (no pun intended), especially to meet their mid January release date. I think it will complement the existing train games, but not replace them.

    This one might be a bit better and not drive you much. Try to get throught the 1st minute of the alarm and you'll be fine.

    Thanks

    As soon as I saw whose channel it was I backed out.

    I haven't been back here in years, come to read some news about the game and find that two old jokers just hijack the thread to take the piss between each other like direct messages.

    Anyways, there is a lot of promise in the game, IMO.

    Well I did have a crash tonight. My son reminded me that I actually had a crash before. Honestly it happens so few times that I hardly remember and it's not a big issue for me.

    Tonight I'll d a live stream in SimRail for those that do appreciate the sim and I will show how much enjoyment you can get out of this sim. It will be in about 2 hours so that should be in the middle of a server reset cycle.

    I don't agree with everyone's ideas. There are some servers that like to do role plaing and creating diversions like there is construction or something. I'm against that and a slight majority agree. I can see as a driver not being so kind to being delayed when trying to keep on schedule and purposely set at a speed of 20KMH due to a role play. Now if it just happens to get backed up in legitimate traffic, then it's perfectly good.

    But most don't dispatch that way from what I can tell, and I will be dispatching tonight. Perhaps tomorrow night I'll take a run. There are PLENTY of servers available where hardly anyone is on. The servers now reset every 6 hours from what I understand. Plenty of time to have the same experience you would get in single player.

    For an early access sim it is pretty damm good.

    Thanks

    Sean
