Wakayama & Sakurai Lines Available Now

22/07/2016

http://store.steampowered.com/app/376961/

Situated in the Nara Prefecture of the Kansai region in Japan, there are many rural railway lines that interconnect to provide local residents with a vital connection to the bustling city of Osaka. Converging at Takada for the run up to the main city, the Wakayama Line and the Sakurai Line are particularly busy routes featuring a scenic yet bustling journey throughout. Japanese suburban rail does not get more picturesque than or as challenging as this.

Japan is known worldwide for its picturesque scenery, fascinating history and of course, an impeccable railway network. The towns to the South of Osaka are no exception with the railways traversing towering valleys, local farms and a number of towns full of both modern and historical architecture. Combined with Japan’s famous Cherry Blossom trees, the line-side truly makes for a highly unique palette between the rails and the lush green hills in the distance.

The Nara Prefecture has the most UNESCO World Heritage listed buildings in the whole of Japan, meaning the lines surrounding Takada are sandwiched on either side by a number of beautiful buildings, shrines and Buddhist Temples. The Sakurai Line in particular is famous for this, having gained the nickname Manyō-Mahoroba which refers to the sheer number of ancient structures along the line itself.

Many of the railways south of Osaka are single track throughout and like the rest of Japan (excluding Shinkansen) they were built to the 1067mm (3ft 6in) ‘Cape’ gauge; or as it known locally ‘kyōki‘ literally meaning ‘Narrow Gauge’. Services pass each other at the stations thanks to Japan’s impeccable timetabling, making trains right on time, every time. There is no margin for error on Japanese railways, arriving on schedule is the pride of the network.

Following electrification of the Wakayama and Sakurai Lines, they have been dominated by the classic 103 and 105 Series electric multiple units. While the 103 and 105 are capable of operating at speeds up to 100 km/h, the top speed across the Wakayama and Sakurai Lines is no higher than 85 km/h. When combined with the frequent stopping of Sakurai to Gojo via Takada services and the peaceful nature around the surrounding valleys, the journey across this railway is a very picturesque one.
The Wakayama & Sakurai Lines route delivers the unforgettable experience of taking the controls of Japan’s iconic EMUs, JNRs classic 103 and 105 Series (AI Only). Drive the picturesque Wakayama and Sakurai Line routes in this latest route add-on for Train Simulator.

About This Game





Train Simulator 2016 is the biggest package of exclusive content we have ever delivered in a Train Simulator. Here’s a complete list of what’s included:

Riviera Line In the Fifties


Feel the pressure of steam as you travel back to the time of Green and Gold, from the powerful Kings to the romantic Castles, the heavy working Halls, the goods-carrying Granges and the famous Pannier Tanks across the Riviera Line set in the nostalgic 1950s. Relive the time when steam reigned on all services from local freight to coastline express, whether you perform perfectly alone or need some assistance to get to your destination. Keep an eye on those signals, they can be easy to lose in the cold western fog.



Sherman Hill


Experience the power of the fuel-hungry Big Blows across the challenging Sherman Hill as you haul hundreds upon hundreds of tons, putting that 8500 horsepower turbine through its paces, or opt for some conventional traction in the form of ES44ACs, drive in more comfortable conditions in the wide cab of the SD70M, or maybe in the classic SD40-2s. Watch out though, winter can be brutal even for the most powerful of locos.



West Rhine Railway: Cologne – Koblenz


Control the Genesis of modern Electro-motive traction as you haul heavy freight across the stunning West Rhine Railway in the DB BR 155 ‘Electric Container’, take passengers on their scenic commute with the DB BR 146 or shunt together a train to be taken far away with the DB BR 294. Be mindful of the weather, heavy rain can take even the best drivers by surprise.



Railfan Mode


Enjoy the power and finesse of the railway away from the drivers cab with railfan mode, watch from the platform, track side or stand on a bridge and take in the excitement without worrying about the journey, just make sure you’re ready to take some shots, you never know what you might see out on the tracks!



Steam Edition: Norfolk Southern Coal District


Struggle through the beautifully scenic Mon Line as you haul mile long coal trains through the winding curves and streets of Pennsylvania. Collect coal as you drive your ES44AC slowly under the loading facilities and prepare for the run to the other end of the line. While being relatively level, the sharp river-side turns and the slow speeds as you cut right through a town will not be mastered easily.



TS Academy


New to driving trains? Not to worry! With the newly updated TS Academy you can learn all that you need to beat the extreme, from basic passenger operations to freight terminals that require pin-point accuracy or nailing those complex and unique signalling systems. TS academy is the best way to learn or remember how to control every type of train.



Driver Assist


Have you mastered driving diesel and electric locos, but struggled to control steam? Found it too complicated to drive or understand? Now you can master these delicate engines with our all new driving assist! Driver assist will provide you with real time information based on the locomotives performance and handling, it will guide you through driving a steam loco by highlighting the controls in cab and telling you how to move them to get the best out of the engine. Driver Assist is featured on all the steam locomotives included with the Riviera Line in the Fifties route and can be turned on and off at will.



Train Simulator 2016 is out now and features the 60 Mile Sherman Hill route with UP Gas Turbine, ES44AC, SD70, SD40 and SW10 locomotives and freight wagons. The 40 Mile Riviera Line in the 1950s featuring the GWR Pannier Tank, Castle, Hall, King and Grange Class all with Driver Assist incorporated, Mk1, Collett and Centenary coaches and freight wagons. The 60 Mile West Rhine Railway from Cologne to Koblenz featuring the DB BR 155, 146.0, 146.2, 101 and 294, with regional and InterCity coaches and a variety of freight wagons. The Steam edition includes the 50 Mile Norfolk Southern Coal District route featuring the Norfolk Southern ES44AC and Dash 9 (AI Only) locomotives with NS coal hoppers.

This is an excellent game without doubt. I have not had it for very long and I've had loads of quality fun and time with it. There are bugs and issues with it however, most notably braking issues on the diesel models, and some scenarios not ending properly which is annoying after 1-2 hours of concentrating play.

You cannot get away from the fact that the game is so well made and the scenery so utterly brilliant, that it draws you in expecting certain programming and quality standards to have been met, only to find they have not been.

This is extremely frustrating after having bonded with the product.

Some of the more minor tracks such as refirgeration storage and container crane tracks although accessible, are bugged with phantom collison detection errors which ends the scenario. That combined with braking issues on the diesels (brakes not resetting) and scenario instability (not ending properly with a tick or stars) is disappointing.

The game has a mixture of utter brilliance combined with an unfinished feel. There is no way I could not recommend this game based on what it already is, and I didn't even buy any expansion packs to arrive at that conclusion. Most of my time was spent on Sherman Hill and some time on the Norfolk Southern coal routes. They are outstandingly good and well modelled.

I would hope that more time is spent on programming errors in the future, and maybe even the additon of a campaign mode, and working cranes and scripting possibilities in user made scenarios.

Very, very good product indeed, and I sincerely hope more fixes and developments are planned for it.

Thank you.

The game is very buggy, and any attempts Dovetail makes to fix things breaks it worse than before. Do NOT buy anything from Dovetail games, this is a money trap. Dovetail games is run by con-artists.

Train Simulator 2016
Steam release date: 12th July 2009

Yes folks, Dovetail have been selling us the exact same trash for the last 7 years, and the only 2 things that ever change each year are the number on the end of the game title, and the amount of over-priced DLC they release for it.

But hey, Train Simulator will be the best slide show that your £2000 PC runs again this year. So it's not all bad news.

My favourite part of this game was deleting it from my Steam library.

Not what I remember from my first copy of MS Train Simulator. It has shrunk to be very limited and now feels like more of a demo than a full game. It >Seriosuly< feels that when you open it the developers are there saying: "Well, here is the User interface, Here is a taste of game play. Now, for the rest of the game, purchase these and these DLC's!!!!"

But to be fair, that is not all they seem to say with this game. They also periodically seem to say : "Good progress, Now take a look at this tailor made error message! - Now End task the demo!"

Why does it take so long before a game is ticked installed in DLC before it appears on the gaming list?
and does anyone else have this gripe?
There is no point in displaying new stuff (like Scotrail) if it is going to take forever to play (Ibought it on 7/7

As much as I'd like to recommend this game, I unfortunately cannot. After getting it way back in 2011, with some of the DLC attached, I originally adored this game, being the railroad fan that I am. But, after getting into the game for the first time in a few years, I now realize that this game has really gone downhill, from constant framerate issues, to the fact that the game cannot even run stable on a gaming computer. And I will not even get started on the DLC issues for this game, or the issue that in order to get the new content for Train Simulator 2016, if you already had the game, you had to pretty much BUY IT AGAIN! This game has quickly become quite a disgrace for those who love trains, and is ultimately a shadow of what it used to be. Unless Dovetail gets their crap together, and decided to incorporate all of the DLC they put out for Ridiculous prices into the game, or lowered the prices to more reasonable amounts, I would wholeheartedly NOT recommend this game! I mean, seriously!? $5,000 for over 270 DLCS that don't even add that much into the game!? That's practically robbery!

$5,000 for all the DLC? That's pathetic! Get the old MIcrosoft TS has more trains and maps than the base version of this game! Oh, but everything is on sale. Still over 3,000 bucks! This is not train enthusiast friendly. This is just a way to scam them. Don't get this game. It's garbage. If you want to have any fun with this game, expect to pay at least $1,000 because of how much content the lock and keep away from base fans. Scumbags.

What is it?
A simulation that exists somewhere between 'game' and 'realistic'. There is a variety of driving offered, from high-speed modern electrics operating fast passenger routes, diesel shunting in rail yards, to vintage steam locos. Train driving itself isn't so much of a challenge as operating to a tight timetable without giving your passengers a severe case of whiplash or screeching to a stop about three miles beyond the station platform! A range of difficulties and lengths of play are offered in both career and non-career missions.


Is it difficult?
Driving a more modern train included in the base game is easy: start, stop and a few speed settings in between when using basic controls. You can opt for more advanced controls and difficulty options (like your train being forced into an emergency stop if you run a red signal - it will take you about 900 years to get back to speed again so kiss goodbye to your timetable)! The difficulty comes in maintaining safety while keeping to a brutally tight real-world timetable. Steam locos are considerably more difficult, but this is where Train Simulator is really immersive. The levels and dials are best operated in 3D for a full simulation experience, and you probably won't be able to see clearly where you're going - that's IF you're going, rather than chugging out a lot of black smoke!

Also included in the product are all the tools to make your own routes. You are rather left to your own devices with what appears to be a very confusing interface at first. However, quite a few of the DLC routes now sold through Steam started life as fan-made routes using the tools. There are likely some decent user-created guides out there by now (this game started out as Rail Simulator many years ago so it's been around for a long time now).


What regions does it cover?
The UK, US and Germany are heavily supported (the base game was originally only these countries and players who went on to make DLC routes tended mostly to be from those same countries). There is (slowly) increasing support for other countries through third-party developers offering coverage of some routes in Canada, China, Netherlands and South Africa for example. Mostly, this has been left to gamers to provide this content, but much of it is every bit as high quality as the base game assets, if not better - and has started to earn its creators some money.


Why the poor reviews?
Mostly, the negativity has been because of the DLC pricing, with some claiming that it will cost you in the region of $5000 to buy it all. But they miss the point. You're not meant to 'buy it all' (and if you did, there probably wouldn't be enough years of 'useful life' of your PC, your version of Windows or life-span on Planet Earth to play it all). No, the idea is that there might be 2-3 routes that interest you in addition to those provided in the game, and a few locos that you like or which suit your routes. As a guide, since 2009, I've acquired in the region of 7 routes, and perhaps twice that number in locos, and have had literally hundreds of hours of play from them. Although DLC locos are sold with missions that might depend on a particular DLC route, if you don't have the route you can still place the loco on one of your owned routes. There are hobby sites such as UKTrainSim as well as Steam Workshop that offer free content, and plenty of third-party sites like JustTrains that sell advanced DLC. The DLC made by the game's developers is usually half-price during Steam sales, with mega-bundles being an excellent way to grab a lot of content relatively cheaply.

In a highly moddable game such as this, there are also the inevitable bugs. In the base game, these are fairly minimal, but additional content from third-party creators can be the cause of crashes and failing routes (as usual with any game that supports player content, mods can clash or cause crashes, and not all creators update their creations to keep in line with each iteration of Train Simulator).

Finally, performance is a constant bugbear. This game has always been a mixed bag on performance, with some heavy city locations with busy rail traffic and overhead catenary slowing even the best of PCs to a crawling framerate. Mostly though, the game plays very well on a gaming-grade PC. It is both CPU and GPU heavy, and places similar demands on your system as MS Flight Simulator FSX does, so the majority of players find that they're dialling down a few settings for better performance.


In summary
This won't be a game for everyone. It's a rather niche product with a dizzying array of DLC (much of it expensive - wait for sales) and it needs a beast of a PC if you can't live without using SSAO graphics settings! However, picking a few favourite locos and a couple of routes in addition to the decent amount of content in the base game will keep you happy (if not your passengers - poor things) for some time to come without breaking the bank.

And if you are the first person ever to have bought ALL that DLC, can I have a new car please?! One of those swanky sporty things that millionaires have... I would catch a train instead, only I crashed the last one.

This game is DLC Simulator!
It has so much DLC that it is not even funny. I got this game with the steam bundle, it was not worth it! There is no steam trains when you firrst get the game! It's honestly a game that is fishing for money. It is definitly DLC Simulator.
But the one thing is the graphics are nice. I hate this game and I wish I would have gotten a refund!

Mixed feelings. It's fun to play the game just until you get bored with the bundled scenarios and all the bugs coming with them.

Have you ever tried the shunting scenarios in Köln? It's absolutely ridiculous that the game glitches after cupling like 4 or 5 wagons and you have to save the scenario, quit the game, rebuild the game cache and return just to complete this mission. I've also experienced some weird AI collision without any actual AI present on the map (had to restart the scenario).

The same applies to the bundled ICE missions where the whole signalling is just broken. Stuck in the depot while waiting for the red signal to turn green (waited for like 5 minutes) also had fun time applying emergency brakes just because some ghost speed-limit from 160 to 80 kmph. My virtual passangers thanked me at the end of the drive for sure! :)

And for this whole DLC model. It's insane. Their in-game store lists some locos for €6.99 but when you click the Steam checkout button you can see that they want to charge you €13.99.

Also €20-30 for routes containing 3-4 scenarios with 30 minutes of drive-time per each is utter BS. You can find highly detailed, realistic, non-glitching maps for MSTS for FREE. Almost forgot to mention that you can drive full-routes on those not just 4-5 stop services starting on deserted main-stations and ending in some random town in the suburbs.

For €7 it was OK to buy the game (seen worse for that much of money) but I absolutely wouldn't recommend spending even an eurocent more on that.

Game is decent, but it is very slow and buggy. The DLC pricing is criminal and the base game barely comes with any locomotives or routes. I love train simulator type games, but this one costs a fortune if you want some of the locomotives and routes you like.

I find the programme very unstable and for the prices charged not good value. I have had many problems with the whole game over a few years and help seems quite poor in times of trouble. I do hope the next edition if i buy it has improved from the glitches etc and the unexpected crashes.
