“World of Subways - Volume 3 hebt sich deutlich von seiner Konkurrenz ab und führt derzeit die Simulationen an.”

“World of Subways is a lovingly realistic recreation of the Circle Line of the London Underground, with the amount of detail that has gone into both the stations, and the trains, it sets the bar of train simulators, and is definitely one for the true hardcore sim crowd. Whilst the player models are not as fantastic as you might want, and there are a few small issues here and there, it is one of the best simulators out so far this year 4/5.”

About This Game

World of Subways" is our series of the most interesting Subway and Underground routes of the world for the PC. After the releases of New York and Berlin we are now proud to introduce Vol.3 - London Underground. This simulation covers the entire Circle Line in its current operational service which includes the new section to Hammersmith. This line offers a length of 27km with 35 stations, many hours of fun and interesting missions

The Circle Line is an underground service of the London Underground circling the center of London. It was first described as such in 1949 and already appeared on the 1947 Underground Map. It had not been built as a separate line, but was merged from different sections of the Metropolitan Line and the District Line. Only two short sections of this line are solely used by the Circle line. These sections are the connecting curves between the stations of High Street Kensington and Gloucester Road and between Aldgate and Tower Hill.

Features


  • 3D - Cockpit with rotatable camera
  • Original virtual reproductions of 35 stations on the Circle Line
  • Free movement in the train and at the stations (accomplished for the first time ever!)
  • More realistic AI trains, dynamic passengers on the platforms
  • Superb graphics, reflecting headlights, night effects
  • Realistic announcements recorded exclusively by the original speaker

Tube map


Physics


The physics have been developed based on real values, such as those used in training simulators. The driving and braking characteristics of the trains are reproduced faithfully and reflect the feeling to actually controlling a train of the London Underground.

Graphics


Compared to the first two products in this series, Vol. 3 uses a new 3D engine. The simulator is now based on the Vision Engine Trinigy, which made it possible to substantially improve lighting and 3D effects. At the same time the stability and performance of the 3D engine has been improved.

World of Subways? More like World of Glitches. Super glitched. Driver can fall through the ground, etc. Game crashes every 5 to 8 minutes then one time it would not start again. Don't buy, please!

When I first got this, it crashed to desktop every other time I tried to start a mission, and 20 minutes into my first non-training mission it suddenly turned into a slideshow before the computer locked up entirely. However, after rebooting the PC, I have had no such issues. (However, with RadeonPro active I had to CTRL-ALT-DEL then Cancel to get the missions to start. Removing RadeonPro, all was well. That's an old third-party app anyway; I thought I'd give it a try.)

I had to assign the "Interact" control to a different key and use that in place of the instruction to click on a door with the mouse, as there is no mouse pointer when you're in walk mode. Without doing that, I couldn't get more than two minutes into the training mission, as it was impossible to close the cabin door from the outside.

I also found the automatic announcement system to be off by one station (I think I failed to use the "next station is closed" announcement when passing through a closed station), but when I tried to reprogram it at South Kensington, it still kept announcing "This is Gloucester Road" even though I'd just told it to start from South Kensington. Minor issue, since you should know to hit the "station closed" button before you reach the closed Blackfriars station.

Also, one of the early missions has some incorrect text, as it tells you to take over a train on Platform 4, when actually the train is on Platform 3. In general the English text is rather clunky; the developers are native German speakers and they didn't hire any native English speakers to work on their English translations.

It didn't seem to mind that I had forgotten to set the destination sign on the train in the first non-training mission. I've now finished a few missions. While there appears to be no scoring system whatsoever -- you either complete the mission or you don't -- in fact there is something happening in the background. In a mission where you have to make up time, at the end I was told I had achieved "59 of 60" and therefore failed, but nothing that explained what those numbers represent. When completing missions, it doesn't appear take all the details into account like the destination sign.

However, I just tried to do a non-mission "Drive to Schedule" run, and at the end, it did point out that I hadn't set the destination sign correctly (I had set it to the ending station, but apparently that's not right -- maybe it wants the basic "Circle Line"), and did in fact present a score of 72%. It mentioned braking too hard, going over the speed limit, and having the announcement system set wrong (which I did on the first station). So maybe that "59 of 60" in my failed mission means a score of 60% was necessary, even though mission completion screens don't give you any such score.

If you're not intimately familiar with the stations it can be difficult to know which way is east and which way is west sometimes. So when you have to take a train from High Street Kensington to Edgware end, you might take off and find the next station to be Gloucester instead of Notting Hill. I guess that's part of the challenge!

EDIT: In so doing the above mistake, I discovered that you can't actually collide with AI trains. When I found myself at the Gloucester Road station and realized I was going the wrong way, I reset the train to drive the opposite way and found myself head-on with another train that was stopped waiting for me. I figured the mission was over and decided slowly to bump into the AI train head-on... but I ended up driving straight through it and actually was able to complete the mission despite my detour.

Anyway, I am quite enjoying it. The detail is really nice. You have to (or rather, can) switch everything -- right down to the heating and ventilation systems for the passengers. (The windows even fog up if you don't turn the ventilation on, during certain times of night and weather conditions.) It doesn't have any complaint system from passengers like Bus Simulator 16 for example, though, at first glance or when doing missions, but in Drive to Schedule mode it does point out if you were braking too hard, so that counts as a passenger complaint.

If you want to slack off from your mission you can just hop onto any of the AI trains and take a ride as a passenger! That's pretty cool.

The riding of AI trains is part of the normal gameplay too. Some of your missions require you to hop onto a train to a particular station in order to take over control of another train at that station. Really nice feature! (As long as you know which way is east and which way is west so you get on a train in the correct direction!) The map included with the game is the entire Underground system; downloading a specific Circle Line map from the internet is highly recommended -- just make sure you get one from the 2009 expansion of the line, and make a note on it to yourself about Blackfriars being closed (for it was when this game was made), so you know when to hit the "next station is closed" button on the announcement computer in order to keep your announcements in synch (not that the game really cares if your announcements are correct, or even used at all; this game is very much a self-policing sim except in cases of speeding, running red lights or derailment (if derailment is turned on in options)).

So, as a simulation game, I do recommend it, despite all the crashes and the system lockup I experienced initially. Maybe my CPU or GPU was starting to overheat or something. I know many people have no such worries so I can't fault it too much -- just be aware that it may not be particularly stable for you, but try rebooting after installation, as that seems to have cured it for me. (It's using some sort of nVidia-branded engine, so it could be that it doesn't play nicely with ATI graphics cards.)

In terms of graphics settings, it has no anti-aliasing, so you might want to force your graphics card to provide that if you can handle the frame rate. The "Glow" option is HDR glow which is really horrible -- causing complete whiteout on a lot of signs. I found it looks much better with the Glow turned off. It does provide an anisotropic filtering slider, a selection of shadow qualities, the ability to turn off bump mapping, reflections, a simpler lighting system, etc., so there's a fair bit of optimization you can do if your frame rates suffer. I keep most things on max (shadows to Medium, Depth-of-Field Blur off and Motion Blur off), and manage 30 to 45 fps on average with my ATI R9 270, which is all right since you're never going over 40 mph.

One thing that I think would be nice, if there were DLC's for other lines that can be added, or different lines in different games.

I'm familiar with simulators, but I've never played a Train Simulator before. I've always thought the idea of being stuck on a train with nothing to do in between stops a rather boring idea. However, this is not the case with WOS3. There is always something to do, always something to look out for, be it a speed limit, red light or station.

The recreations of the stations are very realistic, as are the announcements and trains.

PROS:
-Realistic representation of the full circle line (bar one station that's closed)
-Interesting missions
-Freeroam, drive to/from most major stations as you please
-Ride as a passenger and walk around the stations
-Runs on a potato
-Amazingly realistic controls, almost every control is clickable
-Programmable announcements

CONS:
-Mind the gap.
-Buggy as hell (listed below)
-Drop through the floor sometimes (not game breaking as you respawn where you were before)
-GFX can be amazing, and also "meh" at the same time. They can be a real pain to setup at first.
-Holding SHIFT to click anything is a real pain in the *rse
-Spend 30 minutes on a mission, accidentally run a red light, game instantly over. No checkpoints. No saves. You have to start again.
-Train derails pretty easily, but derailing can be turned off in options, so again, not game breaking.

Overall, I love this game and I think it is well worth the £20 I paid for it.

This game is the definition of a simulation- it's very detailed and true to life. If you're into these kind of games then you'll enjoy it, if you're expecting an exciting game with heart pounding adventure then you'll be instantly bored.

The game does feel like it needs a lot of polish - the interface is clunky - you have to hold the 'shift' button whenever you want to interact with any controls in the cabin - although there are keyboard shortcuts for some controls.

Once you get used to the controls though driving the train is pretty easy and it's pretty cool seeing the different parts of London as you drive through - except of course when you're in a tunnel (which is a lot of the time) and that's the main problem with this game really, although the detailed and accurately modelled train stations are nice to see (which you can explore on foot as well).

There are 2 modes you can play - missions and 'drive to schedule' which is basically free mode where you get to choose your route, time of day and weather. The missions are pretty much similar to train simulator - drive so and so route and keep to schedule - with emergencies and whatever else thrown in to challenge you.

The game is very harsh when you do something wrong during a mission (like speeding) - it will instantly end the mission, instead of giving you penalty points like train simulator.

I also had issues when first playing - the framerate was VERY low, as in 10-15 FPS. My PC can run Skyrim on ultra settings with a smooth framerate, so it was a bit surprising.

I checked the graphics settings and turned the anti-aliasing and bump mapping sliders all the way down which made the game smooth and playable (I kept draw distance to 'very high' though which you'll want to do unless you don't mind having buildings pop out almost in front of you). After doing this the graphics still look impressive enough for me.

I recommend it if you're really, REALLY into your sim games, if not you might want to save your money - you'll likely get bored after a while.

Rediculiously detailed simulator. A lot more fun then driving your average train sim I found. Although it is lacking in some simple things I hope they will patch, such as the option for short cut keys for all the cab buttons, including announcements, annoying having to click through a few views just to announce stand clear of the doors.

Also why is there no in game map? Just a tube map, with the position of your train overlayed, and possibley your selected route, it would help people who don't live in London understand where they are going immensely!

Those two easy things added, I would say it could be the best train sim yet.

I have only had this game for a little wile, and it is probably one of THE BEST simulators I have ever played! Normal ones like Train Simulator 2014 you just sit there for an hour like, "yep, this is pretty much it." But in this, you have more stops, more passengers, more enhanced gameplay experience. The passengers dont just vanish onto your train, they actually go places. They pay attention to the onboard announcement system, they run to catch a train, and they know exactely where you and they are going. Also, your not just stuck on the train, you can mve around on any platform and train. You don't have to drive the train, you can ride it around! I hope that there will b3e more updates, like multiplayer and more of the London Underground routes. I give this game a 15/10!

I've been enjoying my time in World of Subways 3. It's definitely a true simulator in every sense of the word. You are responsible for running a subway train in London's Underground on the Circle Line. You will need to set up your train before setting off, including going to the rear of the train to turn on your tail lights, then walking to the front of the train to start the train, turn on any additional lighting (headlights, cab light, passenger compartment lights) as well as turning on the heat for the passenger compartment. You will then need to change the train's sign to indicate the route you're running, and set up the automated voice messages to correspond to the route you're running, so that station arrivals are properly announced. You can also manually trigger announcements through the same control panel used for the automated messaging system.

This is not a 'lite' simulator, you are responsible for performing your duties as if you were actually driving the subway train. Failure to follow speed limits will cause you to fail (at least in missions), and you want to maintain the schedule to the best of your ability. There are also signal lights that you will need to follow in order to be successful.

The missions aren't so much missions as they are tutorials. They work well in this regard, however it would have been nice if they included a mission editor and workshop support so that more varied missions could be created by the community. The missions can be fun, though a bit challenging at first as you're learning the ropes of driving the train, and while you're learning the route, you can find yourself accidentally speeding, which can cause you to fail the mission requiring you to restart the mission from the beginning (if you wish to complete the mission at all, as the missions are optional.) Once you're done with the mission (if you choose to do them), you're then free to select a route and drive it, just as if you were scheduled to drive that route for your shift that day. While saving your progress is not possible during missions, you can save your progress when just driving a route. This affords you the ability to stop at a station, save the game, and return later to finish your 'shift'.

Graphically, the game looks fantastic as there's lots of detail in and out of the tunnels, that give you the feel of really being on a subway line. Things like new pieces of rail sitting along the side of the tracks, that are waiting to be put in place are common, as are things like shipping pallettes. Each station seems unique and it seems quite a bit of attention to detail has been put into each station, so that the more you drive, the more easily you start to recognize a station as you pull in. I've never been to London, so I can't say whether the stations are accurate to their real-world counterparts, but I can say that each station definitely maintains a uniqueness, so you never feel like each station is just a cookie cutter copy and paste job of any other station. The models for the driver (your character) and the passengers could use some polish however.

In the audio department, they've done a decent job using believable sound effects that you would expect to hear while riding on a subway train. I'd say they're a notch above utilitarian, but they're not bad by any stretch of the imagination. Simply, they do the job of conveying the sounds you would expect to hear in a believable manner.

As for the controls, they work well, though I'm now using a Rail Driver unit with it instead of just the mouse and keyboard, which has helped me in terms of overall immersion. Despite using the Rail Driver controller, I still need to use the SHIFT + Mouse combination to interact with some things like the automated station announcement system. The Rail Driver unit is natively supported, but the levers and switches used do not line up with the default control stickers, so it takes a bit of getting used to. For example, the Auto Brake lever is actually the throttle control, while the Independant Brake lever is the gear selector. It feels a tad awkward at first since those aren't the way the controls are set up for other train simulators, but once you get used to it, it really does become second nature.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys passenger-orientated train operations simulations. The challenge is getting to each station on time without speeding or running any red lights. I'm running it quite well on my laptop (an HP DV6-6135dx) which has an AMD A-8 3500 APU, though I did have to turn a few graphics options down to smooth it out. I still get an occasional stutter here and there, but with the slightly lower graphical settings I'm using, it remains mostly a smooth experience.

I would not recommend this for someone that just wants to drive a train as if they were driving a HO-Scale or N-Scale model railroad, as it's a bit more complex than that, but if you enjoy passenger operations in other simulators, and don't mind a bit of a learning curve in order to properly drive the train, then there's quite a bit of enjoyment to be had here.

"This is your Driver Kenneth speaking. Today you'll be boarding the Circle Line train driven by me, Kenneth.

You can expect me, Kenneth, your driver, to set up the auto announcements incorrectly so you won't know what train you're actually on. Passengers may experience a slight 'bump 'n grind' as I, me, Kenneth, see the red lights too late and occasionally, well most of the time, will be speeding because the ride is more entertaining when the train sways.

At Stations please don't panic as we hurtle past the edge of the platform, this is perfectly normal, I , Kenneth, always stop, just normally with a little sticky out bit at the front. Passengers in the first car should probably use the rear doors.

So welcome aboard the Circle Line, sit back, relax, forget about your drivers lack of skill and enjoy the London Underground for once. It's always entertaining.

Highly detailed simulation of the London Underground Circle Line, I absolutely love it. This has to be TML Studios' best game.

The sounds are really good and include announcement voices on-board the train and at stations. Train sounds are also very nice, I can't find a fault with them.

Graphics are great, although there is some blurring in the distance, but this doesn't matter so much considering you're usually in a tunnel, or watching the track and signals in front of you anyway.

Simulation is top notch and very realistic. You can actually get out of the train and walk about the stations. My only fault with this is that the first person camera has this weird view bob and head movement attached to it, although there is 3rd person. It is also very strict, so if you're not looking to play properly then the game will just end itself if you do something wrong.

If you do get the game, make sure to play the 1st mission which shows you how to drive and how it all works, but beware of red lights and speed limits!
