    There is one word that can describe Trainz Simulator 12.

    Potential.

    It gives you the tools to create masterpieces but it fails to deliver masterpieces itself.
    It lets you make incredible content, yet doesnt really let you know about it.

    On the right hands, this game is a tool for putting even a sim released years later to shame.
    Its just shy about it. If you like creating more than you like actually driving the trains, give this one a try.

    Take a look at the free content this sim has to offer, use it to your advantage and you'll never look back.

    This was a total waste of $$$ for me - since I purchased it 3 years ago has not run right at all - system is adaquate to run the program just lags, missing tracks, scenery just stops - wish I would have stayed with the old version.

    Thought I would try again and still the same crap - only thing that works - drive tutoral - wow

    If the game was running so smooth as Trainz Simulator 2010 I'd recommend it.

    Maybe my computer is too weak (core i7 4790, 8GB, Gigabyte G1 gaming GTX970), but this game is instable as hell, even placing train tracks can make it lag as hell, so I don't recommend it. Get TS2010 instead if you really want to play Trainz...

    I would recommend this game but I can't. Reason why i can't is because 1. This game will lag the living ♥♥♥♥ out your computer. You need a good computer to run this. 2. It's like the other Trainz game, same old horns (some new) and If you remember the good ol DDA40X cab and the SD40 cab thing back then? Still here! 3.) Not that easy installing mods..... There is new and upgraded engines and rolling stock but all in all, its lags unless you have a GOOD PC.

    Terrible game. Before I could play it it was updating some database for many long minutes, then it didn't started at all, but didn't close either. After manual restart it was updating the same database again. Then it started and after a minute or so it crashed the whole computer. After restart it was updating the same database again. After 2 hours I was finally able to play the game. I have completed the tutorials and tried to play one scenario. But even after many hours of trying I wasn't able to complete it. Because most of the time it is not absolutely clear what you are supposed to do. Even when you figure it out, often you are unable to do it, because some lights will just stay red no matter what you do. Sometimes when you give over the controls to the AI driver you are able to continue, sometimes not. Sometimes when you save the game and load it again you are able to continue, sometimes not. It is a complete lottery. After many hours I was almost able to complete the scenario, but I have lost all my patience already. Moreover the graphics is not very good and the performance is absolutely terrible. While the other Train Simulator (2016) game on Steam is also very far from being perfect, especially with its DLC policy but also because of other problems, it is in many aspects far superior to this game. Hence I am rather recommending that game for train fans over this one. I am not recommending this game at all, only if you have more patience than Buddha which I have not.

    Terrible.

    I dislike the way the company that does Train Simulator (2014 as of this writing) does business and hoped to find an alternative to satisfy my love of simulations and trains. I have been told several times that Trainz is the superior product anyway and that I should get it. I have no idea what the people who said this to me were even thinking.

    The instructions are awful, essentially non-existent, so you need to try to figure out the interface yourself. This is possible but takes time to navigate the proprietary lingo and general disorganization. I somehow deleted (or it just disappeared) a section of the HUD that gave me info on upcoming speed limits, the grade of the track, etc., and I never got it back, making the game unplayable unless all you really want to do is try to derail everything. The only online communities I could find for help were all geared toward content creation, which seems to be the only thing people really enjoy about this since, I suppose, they can charge unwitting suckers like myself for it. The section of the official wiki dealing with driving the train doesn't even exist. The "manual" tells you the keys for doing things, but this is very basic and covers none of the actual problems you'll face.

    The map? You navigate it by right-clicking on individual points that are all buried in a massive amount of labeling, none of which tells you any information you might actually need until you've zoomed in so close you've lost all context. You can't rotate it, but it will rotate on its on depending on the orietnation of your train. There's no helpful color coding for cities vs. depots vs. any of the countless other things you need to find. I am offended that this map even exists.

    Also, on modern computers (i7) with good graphics cards (GTX 660) -- the performance is worse than on Windows XP and an old Geforce 8600. I mean, bad. Textures won't load sometimes. When they do, they load very slowly. The game simply stops working for seconds at a time.

    The whole experience was just awful, bad enough that I actually took the time to write this review after finally giving up.

    I could go into more detail, but no one would bother reading it anyway. Suffice to say, I spent hours on this game just trying to do one scenario. I got through it and immediately deleted the game. I wish I could delete it from my memory.

    Pros:

    Trainz simulator 12 is a very great game that you can do lots of stuff like do some industry things like pick up coal and drop coal off and much more. The passenger system is great but the passengers just dissaper so thats a little bit disapointing. You get lots of trains and Coaches and that. The scenarios are fun because it takes 30 minutes or an hour to complete them so it should keep you very busy. Ever since N3V games made multiplayer, me and my friend did lots of scenarios together.

    Cons:

    Not a lot of maps to select which was dissapointing because in Trainz Simulator 2010 you get a big selection of maps and more mods + it had the LMS Flyingscotsman and the Mallard but in this version you dont get those.
    First class tickets for download station are expensive so I think its a rip off.
    You get very big lag spikes even though I have a high end PC so I had to turn off the shadows.

    Overall

    Overall I think its still a great game. The price is right and you get a lot of dlcs so you should check them out.
    I think Trainz Simulator is better then Train Simulator 2015.

    Thanks for looking at my review :)

    Can be amazing... when it works. Unfortunaly, a fun game and a powerful editor gets slapped with a terrible engine that will lag horribly ON THE MENU SCREEN. The amount of user-made content is pretty good; however in one of the most shameless cashgrabs I have seen, you are limited to a download speed of around 5 KB/s and a download limit of 100MB unless you pay up. Could be great, but in short, avoid.

    This game would have been amazing... However, I have an up to date system, and it runs like total s**t... The game play seems like it would have been a lot of fun, but ever time I change were the camera is it gets choppy or freezes all together. If they where to optimize it, it would be fanastic.

    I have spent many hours happily playing this game, but I can't really recommend it as a "game" because of a couple things:

    1) Framerate, audio, entire application responsiveness takes a massive hit without severely limiting texture qualities and draw distance, making for a high cost to actually take advantage of the game's optimized graphics options. Two upgraded computers later, I still have to cripple the draw distance and texture quality in order to play without the game regularly freezing up for a few seconds every time a bunch of new content needs to be drawn, such as when you pan the camera around.

    2) Included sessions (for which there are steam achievements) are often glitchy or tempermental in their willingness to aknowledge your progress. A signal which should change automatically doesn't, resulting in you being unable to complete a session after investing an hour or more into it. Or a session will suggest you are driving a long train, however you are only driving a locomotive with no actual stock attached. Usually I like retail "games" to have more polish than this, and feel that this superb simulator is, unfortunately, not so superb a "game".

    Further dissuading me from pushing this game on my friends is the fact that the developer, n3v/auran, has now embarked on a kickstarter campaign to fund creation of the next revision of the Trainz series, "Trainz: A New Era." I don't expect the glitches or engine to get any extra polish/performance at this point.


    That all said, however, I have enjoyed this game quite a bit since I got it. The driving experience lets you choose often (in some sessions you are forced to use one or the other) whether to use DCC or CAB mode. DCC seems to emulate an electric model railroad with a simple knob to control movement. CAB mode attempts to emulate real railroads (I am not qualified to say how close it comes) by making the user interact with the reverser (forward/reverse/neutral), a range of throttle notches from -9 to 9, and, for when the engine is pulling cars and the e-brake won't cut it, a complex train brake where you cycle through initial -> lap -> application and watch the various brake pipe/cyl pressures adjust as they eventually bring the train to a stop. The graphics can be nice, and seems many in-game objects have detailed dynamic behavior, from trees which have different graphics for each season, to train cars which have specific loading/unloading animations. The content update hub is also a place for users to post their own content, and for other players to add it to their own collection, not unlike the steam workshop. One can download locomotives, stock, scenery, routes, sessions, etc. which the community has uploaded simply by searching the interface and choosing to download it. The system addresses revisions by content publishers in the community so that new revisions are included when other players with their content perform normal content updates.

    The game has a surveyor mode, where you can create your own train routes and sessions, laying out terrain, tracks, signals, scenery, triggers, session start/end points, etc.. I played with it a little, covering the wireframe ground with snow and a loop of track that had a switch leading off to a roundhouse, in which I had some community-provided engines. I got distracted long before I created anything fancy. As others have documented, building a world is a very time consuming process, and some people take months or years on works which they still consider incomplete. While working on your route/session in surveyor mode, you can fire up driver mode to drive through your creation and test it out and have some fun. If you are happy with the results, you can then publish them to the hub of community content.

    All in all, I think this game is a great sandbox, with some crazy demanding requirements for full graphics performance, and a handful of glitchy/buggy sessions. While the community may continue to contribute content to the game, allowing content to continue to evolve, the engine is dated and not looking like it will ever have its performance-based frustrations addressed. For the retail price, there are almost certainly more actively developed train simulator solutions. If you already own it though, or it is on sale, you may get many hours of fun out of it.

    Despite the graphics engine the game is very good, cause of the variety of routes, vehicles (engines or not), very good HUD, easy to operate editor, tones of freeware and logical price payware.
    If you are train enthusiast you are going to love it, if you just like playing with simulators, its the best choice for sure and if you just like to play driving games compared to Train simulator 2014 it has lower quality graphics but way more routes, locomotives and the DCC mode (easy to operate mode, no hard times with the realistic things) and all of this without the DLCs, plus it is way more cheap than ts 2014 (DLCs).
    I strongly recommend this game!

    I love this game. It has some issues I would agree (not a real speed "feel", gameplay gets laggy on most maps no matter your hardware, ability to eat way to many hours), but it more than makes up for those issues and more with the surveryor alone (the surveryor is what they call the building overlay. You can play for six months with the content that comes with the game, and their are huge amounts of addon routes and cars and engines available on the download station through auran.com.
    The longer you play with it the more you realize you could do with it. As an example I live in northern Mi (USA), and I have built myself most of the tracks in the state (excluding the upper peninsula). Then you find the download station and realize there are most routes and sessions than you could ever drive, ranging from beginner to simply evil in difficulty, and taking anywhere from a few minutes to a full day in drivetime.
    I am happy to have this game on steam where it kept up to date, common links all in one spot(again updated for me), and is mine for the forseeable future no matter which computer I manage to kill.
    Oh and once you get a handle on how the portals work give me a shout. Drive right from your coal mine through a tunnel and come out where ever you want (other maps, turned around, different location on same map, community maps).

    Anyway I highly recommend this title even over the dovetail games title just released. From what I've read 2015 is a pretty much reskinned copy of this game anyway.

    I hate trying to review "mixed" games.

    This game is good if your really into trains, setting up your own routes, playing multiplayer, or just wating time.

    Pro:
    Multiplayer
    Scenarios
    Set up your own routes
    Often in bundles for under $5
    Go find the download station

    Con:
    LAG
    Multiplayer can have very low (sub 20) frame rates on modern systems
    No steam cards
    No Workshop .... Seriously? This is exactly the type of game the workshop was made for
    If your not into trains big time it will be boring as hell


    VERY VERY CON:
    The price and the DLC price.
    OK so this game is 90%+ 2010 so the additional cost would be, relatively, minimal.
    The DLCs do cost to develop but we're talking almost $200 for everything (not on sale)
    This is a $15 -$20 game (half that if you have 2010) and the DLCs should be in the $5 to $10 range.
    I guess it's cheaper than setting up a H-O track in your basement, but still this is NOT a $200 game.





    Overall:
    If your into trains and don't have 2010 get the game when it's on sale and find the download station.
    Avoid if your actually paying full price.



    So thumbs up or down .... STEAM WE NEED A SIDEWAYS THUMB!
    Thumbs up, but only if your into trains and can get this on sale.

    I have been playing simualtors like these for many years, so here's my review:

    This game is Alright, it's very balanced in nature, quite flexible orders and rule system, while having a mid-range graphics capabilities, with very friendly, yet stupid AI system.

    The forums have been very good to me over the years.

    CMP is alright for keeping track of content, it is very friendly for the beginner for managing and sorting content, but it gets less and less flexible as your experiance grows.

    The thing I like most aobut CMP, would be its "Content Creator Plus", it gives you the tools to create content pretty nicely, CMP also sorts content for you into diferent catagories

    I do like the concept of CMP as a whole, but what I don't like, is the trainz database, if it gets corrupt, it has to do an "Asset repair", which fixs all of the descrepencies within the database, which is why I'd prefer Windows Explorer to do it, and trainz to just load the content in.

    The lack of beginner tutorials, espechially route creating / steam locomotive tutorials really doesn't help beginners get used to driving driving steam locomotives for the first time.

    Creating routes is hard without advanced DEM tools (Digitally Elevated Maps), which is sold seperately, so what you're left is oversimplified terrain tools, which doesn't really give enough flexibility when creating rotues.

    I'd much prefer an external tool handle DEM maps, such as L3DT.

    Creating routes using the default tools makes route creating tedious and it doesn't really give a realsitic feel when it comes to the finsihed product.

    The inability to create vertical structures using the default game grid restricts multiple players and forces them to build models which gives the effect.

    The 10M grid is way too low resolution, the 5M resolution is too big as well.

    Soo, I have to ask this, if trainz can support models which have so many polygons, why does trainz baseboards lag so badly with anything below 10 or even 5?

    I can almost guarrantee that the baseboards are going to be lower poly compared to rolling stock and locomotives.

    I bought this game because of the "Multiplayer" aspect of it, which everyone wanted since 2007, which, at the time, the thread had 800 replies to it, Unfortunitely, when multiplayer came out, all of the data was routed through Auran / N3V's servers, causing lag for practically everyone, which sort of continues today.

    Now you rarely ever see more then 5 players playing on multiplayer at a time, compared to the thousonds of people playing Garry's mod.

    It's a shame that multiplayer turned out to be less popular then anyone at the time would have anticipated.

    I admit, trainz isn't going to be everyone's cup of tea, and it has its pros and cons, but I feel this game is okay. I'd recommend it for the beginners and seasoned players, because of its ease of use and the concept of the game is moderately easy to learn, but again, the lack of tutorials is a let down for the game.

    ==== TL;DR version ====
    I'd recommend this game with caveats IF you can get it cheaply during a sale or in a bundle. I would feel a bit cheated by the lack of quality control if I'd paid full price.

    ==== Full review ====

    First, let's note the genre we're talking about here. This is a simulator, not a game as such; it's a bit like Flight Simulator in that if things are exciting, you're probably not doing very well. While it does have some less realistic modes, people who want a "toy trains" sort of game should probably look elsewhere. However, if you want a taste of what it's like to take a mile-long freight train over Tehachapi Pass, using fully realistic cab controls, this is aimed solidly at you.

    The locomotives are carefully and lovingly detailed, both inside and out, and each have their own unique sounds and handling characteristics. While I'm by no means a rivet counter, I found the physics of both the overall train and the locomotive itself to be well-modeled, or at very least plausible. This goes for both the diesel-electrics and the steam engines, which are a physics challenge all on their own.

    The graphics feel dated; they're about what you'd expect of a big-budget game circa 2005. They're certainly sufficient for the purpose, but I wouldn't play this game just to sightsee. There's a nice mix of terrain and parts of the world, though, including the US, Britain, China, and Russia. In spite of the relatively dated graphics, the game requires a fair bit of oomph to run. Those whose gaming rigs are more than a few years old will find this game to be jittery. There are also object and texture pop-up issues that can be distracting given the continual forward movement.

    Both the routes and driving sessions are essentially fan-created. This is understandable considering the effort involved in modeling hundreds of miles of railway. Unfortunately, though, this means the quality varies wildly. Some sessions are particularly well done, especially on the ECML Kings Cross-Newcastle and Mojave Division routes. Others are frustratingly buggy, sometimes to the point of being impossible to complete.

    I did not try any of the multiplayer features, so I can't comment on those.

    Overall this is a reasonably engaging simulator, and the non-buggy sessions provide a nice spread of challenges. If you're the type who needs to complete EVERY achievment, though, the buggy ones will frustrate you.

    Following the purchase of Microsoft train simulator back in 2002 I have always gone out looking for other simulators (especially train simulators) so I can confidently say that I KNOW Trainz, from Trainz, Trainz 2004, Trainz 2006 and Trainz Classic UK.

    What is this game? = answer its bad, it’s a simple money sock soaking up the cash from every innocent customer. I mean really guys this is just bad... don’t even debate.

    Where do I even start?

    Firstly and this is my biggest point that drives me up the wall. This is NOT a new/newer game. By the use of clever branding and publishing your led to believe that this. OH WOW, IT’S A NEW TRAINZ!!! ... Well don’t get too excite sat at ye-oldie computer because it’s not.
    If you simply go into your “Rail yard” (which lists each loco/rolling stock for you to observe) you can see that 90% of the content, YET AGAIN has just been copied and pasted from the previous versions. I mean Big Boy ??. for crying out loud that was made for Trainz 2004 it looks a pile of A*** for one of the latest’s lines of train simulators. Its laziness, pure and simple..
    However that being said, they have made some, and I mean some, new locos and stock that actually looks ok.

    The sounds are awful, again like the locos, sounds have been taken from the Trainz backlog of games. This game screams nothing but laziness, essentially what you looking at is trainz 2004 with mix and matches on certain locos and routes in truth.

    In terms of simulation there isn’t any, well no more than some buttons that make you go forward and backwards, ok there is the complicated control system but its miles from simulated, it feels like someone who has a basic grasp of what things do and has just botched it together how he thinks is best. So it’s not a great start is it?
    The menu and in game overlay/system is far far far complex than it needs to be, like seriously what was wrong with a button that just opened up individual trains to place, here you have got to go create a consist somewhere and then once that’s saved you can load it up in game, it is just stupid.

    Want to know something that amazed me? I find it amazing how a Post PS2 era game with the same level of graphical detail can run THIS badly!!, ¬ seriously. I can run Train Simulator 2015 on full graphics reaching about 20fps in lag spikes and running normally at about 35-40fps
    this game however runs like a slug, RUBBISH, I get 9fps at best, I turn down the graphics so it looks EVEN worse for very little improvement.

    The only thing worth crediting on this game is the first appearance of Train Simulation in Multiplayer...ok it’s a short lived compliment because you can only drive from one map unless you come off the game and fiddle around with the content manager thing to get more, the trains are already placed even if you’re a server host and this far complicated menu system just makes the whole experience even more un-enjoyable. However when you finally do get set up it can be some full playing with friends. But again short lived, because every time a player joins the game will send you miles and mile away from your own train for no apparent reason and it’s a fiddle to find “where you once where”

    I got this cheap but even cheap feels expensive, I would pay at best £5 for this ....
    Out of curiosity I bought a bundle of 16 Trainz DLC the other day for £2.99 to try out.... and there amazingly rubbish. Just avoid at all cost is my advice. In fact go play train simulator its better ;)

    I recommend this game, but with serious caveats. First of all, this is going to appeal to two very specific kinds of people:

    1. Those people who want to get into hyper-detailed train simulations.

    2. Those people who just like driving trains around, probably with their kids.

    I fall into the second camp, so I can't speak to the first camp at all. I've spent my time with the game playing with my four year old son, just kind of driving around, trying not to exceed the speed limit, trying to stop at the stations, and looking at the scenery and inside the cars.

    The graphics are dated, but things like the skies and the countryside are beautiful in their way. There is a sense of verisimilitude that I really like, and the fact that the trains are fully animated throughout all their pieces is a big plus. I'm able to show my son various parts of trains up close while they're working, and he's gotten a much better sense of how trains work than through some other explanations or even riding on them (he loves trains).

    The controls are mildly awkward, the constant trouble with speeding or slowing too much is annoying, and the sense of speed of the train is... not very fast. Slowing down is like stopping a truck full of bricks, it just doesn't want to happen. Warning on when an actual platform that I care about is coming up would be nice, although via the map I was able to figure out more about it.

    If you disable Hardware Transform and Lighting or don't use DirectX, expect interminable lag as you pan around. With those on, it was very smooth for me.

    We have yet to complete any of the runs, and don't really care. We just hop into one and drive around, trying not to break the rules long enough that it will let us actually play. I bought this on some sort of extreme discount, and at that price (maybe $5?) this was absolutely and positively worth it. We've spent a couple of hours having a blast with it, and we'll likely spend several more.

    Would I play this on my own, without my son? No. I'd find it pretty frustrating if I was actually trying to complete goals. But then again, I'm not squarely in the target audience for the adult side of this game. Be sure and check out reviews from folks like that if you are.

    This game is a wonderfully nostalgic trip back to when played the original game back when I was little and then again when TRS2006 came around. This time I managed to actually keep my key code and actually do some modding which has proven to be this game's strongest point. Without the community the library would be bland and unusable, with the already disappointing removal of region and type seperation. Over all though it is a great game that needs some optimization.
