DB BR 152 available now

23/07/2015

http://store.steampowered.com/app/325958/

The mixed-traffic BR 152 is one of the most popular locomotives among drivers seen on Germany’s railways today.

The high performance ES64F locomotive built by Siemens forms part of the company’s EuroSprinter range, and started life as a mixed traffic locomotive. However, almost all locomotives were reserved and assigned primarily for heavy freight duties.

Built between 1996 and 2001 at Siemens’ manufacturing facility in Munich, the BR 152 first entered service in May 1998. Being very popular amongst drivers on freight revenue services, the BR 152 is an agile and capable locomotive able to cope with the rigours of heavy freight.

Over 170 locomotives were built for Deutsche Bahn with an additional two locomotives sold to the leasing company Dispolok. Despite being classified as a freight locomotive, the BR 152 is fitted with appropriate equipment for hauling shuttle trains, such as train line and emergency brakes.

The BR 152 for Train Simulator is available in Deutsche Bahn red and grey livery and features AFB, LZB, PZB and SIFA safety and signalling systems. Also included are Kkt, Sggrss and Shimms freight cars.

The locomotive is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the DB BR 152 on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam. Also included are scenarios specifically for the München-Rosenheim route (available separately and required to play these scenarios).

Train Simulator gets some things right, but too many things wrong. You play for a while and kinda get interested, but it doesn't take long until you see the massive amount of flaws and disgusting customer service it has. I've now uninstalled it and I certainly won't be buying any additional content ever again.

First, what does it get right?
+ Lots of DLC which means a huge amount of content to play with (see cons though)
+ Fairly easy to understand and get into
+ Steam workshop expands the playtime hugely

So what does it get wrong?
- Physics are terrid, and in no way represent any sort of realism
- This is not really a simulator since there is only about 5 buttons in the cab that work..
- Crap optimisation. Framerate dips below 20 sometimes. Probably due to lack of multi-core support.
- Tile loading system. This means the game micro-freezes each time it loads a new tile.
- Sounds are often inaccurate and poor quality, and they copy and paste them from train to train.
- Way too many bugs that they won't fix.
- DLC is overpriced. Where do they get these prices from?
- They reskin a train, call it a new one and sell it for another £11.99..
- Graphics are OKAY in areas, but horrid in others.
- Level of quality is inconsistent.
- They force advertising of their next DLC down your throat any chance they get. On the menu, on the loading screen..
- Customer support just ignores you or gives you false promises.

Could go on for a while. It's a game that has a lot of potential, but the devs are too busy concentrating on treating their customers like cattle and chugging out new DLC rather than patching the game, and fixing existing DLC.

i admit this game has an amazing gameplay, and i would recommend it but...
the amount of DLC just makes me immediately throw it out the window without second thoughts.
the fact that you pay $30+ dollars per ♥♥♥♥ing train! its horse ♥♥♥♥. and the fact gets worse considering there is 230 DLC and to buy them all it costs a whopping $4997.70 dollars. this should be banned from the steam store. we dont need a peice of absolute ♥♥♥♥ like this.

Still has bugs like sound effects that is missing or controls that are not preperly visualized. Don't really like how everything is comparted in DLC's. Even MSTS had Steam Trains in the main package. It's unbelievable how much you have to shell out for a single DLC.
