    Default SimRail - Currently Repetitive

    So I think SimRail has a great update process and they are doing a great job of doing so on a regular basis. Another update was release back on the 2nd and added in the SP tower which currently sees 6 trains a day.

    Despite just over a week ago having the time of my life on a board that is very challenging and fun to operate, it was for me the current peak of the software and is repetitive.

    I'm keeping a careful eye on future developments as I think this is a great simulator. But unlike North America that has a schedule that can be repetitive, the variations are expected due the nature of freight railroads being the dominan feature. This along with some suggestions steered me back towards Run8 while I wait for better updates of SimRail and the upcoming release of Railroader later this year.

    Thanks

    Yes, it has got a little bit repetitive currently, but, there is a lot to patch up, and of course it's still a WIP/BETA project.
    We haven't got the Steam locomotive in the game yet, amongst other things, so, plenty to look forward to this year.
    Patience you must have, my young Padawan. Have patience and all will be revealed.

    Oh I'm not impatient like some around here who don't see my words. I think it will be great and will only get better. Right now SimRail continues to be the leader in evolving their software this year followed by Railroader that is yet to become available. Run8 actually has had little talk lately of anything. It just so happens their last offering suddenly caught my attention better late than never and it was enough to get me back in.

    Railroader can take my money already as far as I'm concerned I would put Run8 to the side if that was available right now. But again patience is needed and it will be available later this year. SimRail will continue to get better so I'm looking forward to that.

    I try not to buy stuff I don't like as a practice. Others could learn from that especially when they complain about prices and exchange rates. They expect their demands to suddenly make something happen or else cry when they don't get their way.

    I'm just stating probably the obvious that it's a bit repetitive right now, but no complaints as I keep an eye on it's developement and look forward to trying out new towers (I'll pass on SP as it sounds boring) in the near future. As for trains I think I need some shunting or something. As beautiful as the route is, driving passengers though challenging to keep on time can get boring for me.

    Thanks

    How did the idea to create SimRail come about? What is its phenomenon and will in the future players be able to travel virtually on Lower Silesian railway routes with white and yellow KD trains?

    ACU is visually complete exterior wise, most of the way on the interior sans animations now..
    GP40PH-2 is progressing nicely on the interior with a proper 26-E-1 Automatic Brake valve.

    I might have to try that but at the moment engrossed in Run 8. At least they haven't neglected the single player market and you can have as many save games as you like.

    I only have Trainz Plus on here Vern. But my finger is hovering over the uninstall button. The Ukraine route i posted pics of is nice. But all the sessions are in Ukrainian so no idea what to do. I did try editing the config files for each one by translating into english. They still work, but straight Google translate, doesn't really make much sense. The one i posted piccies of was an AI drive session, so no need to understand the instructions. I quite like the GCR route, but it wasn't created with DEM.

    Back on topic i may install Steam and SR in a bit. I find all the operations and having to learn train designations etc, over complicated in Run 8. So i just end up running the mainline, which gets very boring very quickly.
