DB BR 261 'Voith Gravita' Out Now

02/09/2015

http://store.steampowered.com/app/325952/

One of the most eagerly awaited German locomotives for Train Simulator, the DB BR 261 ‘Voith Gravita’ is now available in distinctive Deutsche Bahn livery.

The DB BR 261 10BB built by Voith, and named internally as the ‘Gravita’, is a diesel-hydraulic shunting freight locomotive able to operate over medium capacity main line freight routes.

Chosen to replace the ageing fleet of BR 290 series of diesel shunting locomotives, the Gravita is state-of-the-art and boasts a main-line capable cab setup.
Its sister vehicle, the BR 261, is virtually identical with only a diesel particulate filter between them.

The BR 261 10BB for Train Simulator is available in Deutsche Bahn livery and features combination throttle and brake, cruise control/speed set, engine start/stop, cab and instrument lighting, in-cab signalling, PZB and SIFA systems. Also included are Rnoos 64 and Zacns 95 freight cars.

The locomotive is also Quick Drive compatible, giving you the freedom to drive the DB BR 261 ‘Voith Gravita’ on any Quick Drive enabled route for Train Simulator, such as those available through Steam. Also included are scenarios specifically for the Mannheim-Karlsruhe route (available separately and required to play these scenarios).

Three Country Corner available now

28/08/2016

http://store.steampowered.com/app/325962

Drive 130km (80 miles) of track through Austria, Germany and Switzerland, passing through 40 detailed stations!

A tour de force in route design, with stunning scenery, country-specific signalling systems and custom objects throughout, the Three Country Corner Route is probably the most authentic, realistic and detailed route for Train Simulator to date!

Brought to you by Just Trains, the Three Country Corner route lies at the heart of Europe and covers three countries. It starts at Lake Constance in Germany on the Island of Lindau, crosses over to the mainland on a railway dam, and then follows the shores of Lake Constance to the city of Bregenz in Austria.

From there you have two choices - either continue on the main line or take a branch line into Switzerland. This branch line crosses the River Rhine, which forms the border between Austria and Switzerland, and continues on to the city of Rorschach where the line terminates.

The main line starts its slow climb through the valleys to the city of Bludenz, surrounded by the often snow-capped mountains of the Alps, then becomes a single track mountain pass (Arlberg Pass) that winds its way through the Alps. When the tracks reach the very top of the pass at St. Anton, the route finishes.

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.
the fact that you pay $30+ dollars per ♥♥♥♥ing train! its horse ♥♥♥♥. i mean they could of made a bunch of train packs consisting of 4 or more trains, that would be exceptable. and the fact gets worse considering there is 230 DLC and to buy them all it costs a whopping $4997.70 dollars. now DLC is optional, you dont have to buy it. it should be removed from the steam store temporarily, it makes valve look bad to have a game like this, with all its rediculously expensive dlc on its game distributing application. we dont need something as abhorred as 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.
