About This Content

Ever wanted to have a shorter metro for the night time, or a very long version for the rush hour? Well, now it's possible! The Metro Madness pack features customizable metro trains that you can put together car by car and alter the setup for different timetables. It also boasts five brand new metro trains (each with three different cars) and the possibility to place metro depots underground.

  • Crescenta FL9: The brand new model from the Crescenta factories, the FL9, is a future classic. It features a very comfortable ride for the passengers and an impressive carrying capacity. It lacks in speed but it makes up for it by carrying such a huge amount of people. It is at its best on congested inner city routes.
  • Galaxie Madressa: The Madressa might not be the quickest, but it has excellent fuel efficiency and a high capacity. This modern vehicle performs well on busy routes.
  • Capitol EcoBoost: It may have an otherworldly appearance, but don't worry, it just the new EcoBoost made from recycled materials! The Capitol Factories wanted something brand new and eco-friendly, so they used recycled material to build an all new metro train model. The unique look is very attractive to passengers.
  • Capitol Rocket: With extra wide seating the Rocket is superbly comfortable to ride. It's also sturdy and needs little maintenance. It doesn't consume a lot of energy, but it's not as fast as other trains. Comfort comes with a cost!
  • Arnauld Metropolis: The Metropolis, as the name states, is designed for big, bustling cities. It barely needs maintenance thanks to the solid build, and is very fuel efficient. All this combined with a high average speed means it is an excellent vehicle on busy inner city routes with passengers all day long.

Pick this one up, unless you don't like micromanagement.

If you didn't preorder the game or haven't bought one of the few other packs that has a metro train in it, you only have a single metro train to choose from. Statistically, literally the worst one in the entire game.

This pack adds five fully modular trains to the purchasing list. While the amount of configuration you can do is limited (You're forced to have a power car for every pair of trailer cars, including the cab), the total length you can set (and therefore capacity) is far longer (and higher) than any of the 'Standalone' metros can offer.
It even gives you the ability to run short 2 and 3-Car trains that cost comparably little to run and can be easily extended as demand increases.

However, this pack also adds an element of micromanagement to the game. The custom comfiguration is never the default and you need to re-set the car configuration for every timetable period (Unless you clone them from another line). The sheer numbers also get hard to handle after a while, as you frequently forget how many of a particular car you have in a depot. Ten 12-Car trains (The maximum length) means that your depot has 120 individual cars that you have to purchase and manage individually. This particularly becomes a headache when it comes time to move a depot, you've got to sell or move them all individually.

I still say to get this pack, the number of new trains it adds is more than every other available pack combined and their utility is second to none, but there's a tier of micromangement that comes along with it.

This DLC is a must have if you play CiM2,
because metro is the key element of your transportation system and
this DLC gives you the ability to change the structure of your metro
to achieve highest efficient

Recommend!
