    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 maanging 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 anyone'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.

    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 thought this would be fun because of the silly spelling error in the title hahahaha i laughed for seconds on end. Then, my ♥♥♥♥ laptop ran this at about 0.05 fps (not joking) and I almost broke the laptop. Now that I have a new computer, I haven't downloaded it because I'm a lazy sack of lard and didn't want the other people in my house to beat me for DDOSing my own internet 10/10 would start moving after 5 minutes of stationary gameplay again

    不推荐原价购买这个游戏,只有打折的时候买来体验体验还算可以。

    首先说优点,就是游戏元素丰富,车型众多,而且自带编辑器。火车头的细节做得非常到位。例如中国产的车头里N日无事故奖的一个搪瓷口杯、摆在控制室里充饥的康师傅方便面、因为铁道部是官方机构,政治挂帅,标准读物《人民日报》被贴在玻璃窗上,甚至放大镜头在密密麻麻的控制开关上还隐藏着反物质、核裂变、超光速引擎和自爆开关这样的彩蛋。不得不说制作组确实还是花了一番心血在里面的。

    说完优点,缺点接踵而来:

    第一,游戏的画面并不出色,但不知道是图形引擎太过落后还是优化做得太差,场景和镜头快速切换的时候会有明显的丢帧现象。从车外视角换会车内视角的时候,有挺长一段时间内车内场景的贴图材质惨不忍睹,只能等引擎重新渲染起来之后才会变得清晰。我的电脑配置并不算低(E3-1230V2、16G内存、GTX660显卡),但运行这款游戏还是非常吃力。

    第二:游戏对新手不够友好。如果你是一个对铁路完全没有一点认识的门外汉,那你想要完成游戏的4个教程都有一定难度。没有语音教导,没有图形提示,直接刷的一声丢给你一大片文本慢慢去阅读,有没有耐心去一页页看完,看了能不能理解全靠你自己,失败了N次之后我总算通过了。

    第三,游戏的理念虽然挺好,力求创造一个可以供玩家随意摆弄的铁路世界,高度开放的世界编辑器、大量可供互动的对象都是值得称赞的。但是将这些东西堆砌在一个挺渣的基础(引擎)上,后果却是灾难性的。教程里的地图非常袖珍,所需的脚本也非常简单,所以问题不大。但当我完成教程,开始第一个正式的驾驶任务(就是南中国地图,运煤的那个任务)时,噩梦才正式来临。任务简报里面已经说明,这是一个“简单”的任务,你经过的路经中,变轨的操作由AI自动完成,自己只管专心开车,结果我尝试了N次,却能出现N个不同的Bug,开到红灯跟前停下,信号员(Signal Man,不知道是不是这样译)不知道是擅自离岗了还是在跟女友啪啪啪,完全无视我的存在迟迟不给我变轨之后让我通过,这个任务我尝试了很多次,也碰到了很多个无法通过的红灯。我比较倾向于认为这都是Bug,如果不是的话,那就是因为我对铁路系统还太过陌生,不知道哪里出了问题就被卡住了。如果是这种情况的话,那也完全可以指责游戏对新手太不照顾,太不友好,因为毕竟作为一个游戏,是要面对全体玩家的——它并不是一个培训软件或者模拟器。

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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've tried... Ooooh how I've tried.

    I have given up on this game, and it's older sister, Trainz 2010.

    The UI is astronomically horrible, something as simple as loading up a train and driving on a track becomes a monumental task. The amount of content in the game is great (more for 2010 than 2012) but finding the good stuff amongst all the garbage is extremely difficult. Imagine if Flight Sim X bundled together a bunch of graphically inept Freeware and cobbled them together and called them a sequel, and you pretty much have the idea of Trainz here. Yes, 2010 has a massive 51 routes, but only a few of them are actually good, and most of them have hardly any scenarios or "sessions", which are almost the only thing you can do if you don't have the time to learn how to use the editor.

    For example, in Train Sim 2014 (from what I've seen, I don't own it, but I should soon!) in order to drive a train on a track, all you need to do is go to the "Quick Drive" section, choose a train, choose a route, choose a start and end point, and away you go.

    In this, you need to find the route you want to play on from the GIGANTIC list (again, mainly 2010, not 2012), create a new scenario, find the massive list of locomotives, (in an insanely small text size) with extremely small pictures, plonk it down on the track, then find some carriages or freight that matches the coupler type (you can also choose a pre-made consist, but 99% of them don't actually have locomotives) plonk them down behind the loco, then save the session, go back into the main menu, find the route again, find the session again, launch the session, wait for it to load again, then you can finally drive the train, of course, you don't have an actual end objective like in TS2014. It's far too difficult and annoying to do if you don't have much time, and just want to drive your favourite Steam train around a track for a bit.

    Then there's the DLC...

    Yes, TS2014 has a lot of it, yes, some of it is overpriced, but they all download quickly and easily through Steam. In Trainz, not so...

    If you buy a DLC on Steam, for 2012 you have to activate the CD-key in game, then you have two options. 1. Wait for it to download at less than dail-up speeds, or 2. pay *more* money, to download it faster. It's worth mentioning that I didn't even ever get the downloads to work, they just kept failing and wasting my limit amount of broadband. 2010 is a little easier... in 2010 all you need to do is put a file in a folder, then run an extended database repair, wait for about an hour, then you can play your DLC, but that implies you own Trainz 2010...

    Now, I can't compare the physics of the two games because I haven't played TS2014, (and I'm not an expert in any stretch of the imagination) but from what I've seen, it looks pretty good. The graphics in TS are MUCH better, the graphics in Trainz vary between loco, rolling stock and individual pieces of terrain, which makes it look worse.

    The actual gameplay from Trainz is okay, except for a few annoying problems (I switched from my loco (double ended (Class 37)) into a passenger car for a bit, switched back and suddenly I was in the wrong cab, 2 hours into a journey and I stupidly hadn't saved, I tried for a while to get back into the front cab but to no avail, this has happened quite often). There is a terrible lack of information on how to actually get this game to be playable in a simple manner, beyond the premade scenarios, and the tutorials are *alright*.

    The optimization is HORRIBLE, now, I don't have that fantastic a computer, but I'm sure my 550ti and quad-core i5 should be able to handle a game from 2010/2011/2012 on it's lowest graphics, but I still get frame drops, even when I restrict myself to the cab view.

    CONCLUSION:

    Overall... it falls flat on it's face in front of TS2014. The GUI and menus are HORRID, the game is very user unfriendly and just plain annoying. I give up. There is another Trainz game coming out, but I don't think I'll buy it if it continues down the current route.

    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.

    ==== 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.

    A very good game! Good for driving trains, and you can even build your own routes, if that's your thing. The multiplayer can be very laggy, but other than that, a good buy! :)

    very enjoyable but there still needs to be a huge fix for the preformance (frames, rendering and detail render), overall a fun game
