Update 2 Released

Following on from last weeks post as detailed below - we are now releasing Update 2 to all TSW: CSX Heavy Haul owners which addresses the following issues/bugs:

FULL PATCH NOTES

Patch Size: 600mb

Load/Save Issues

  • A Crash on loading previous saves has been identified and we believe resolved
  • The dispatcher not being properly re-initialised on reloading some saves has been resolved
  • We have identified some control states on the locomotives and rolling stock were not being restored correctly on loading and have rectified this
  • Objective markers were sometimes not re-appearing on loading a save game.
Optimisation
  • We have found some issues with the render distances for Splines and Foliage to be set too far out and have reduced these to more appropriate settings for a decent performance improvement.
  • Some work has been done to optimise the tasks going on for managing AI trains in the background and reduce their overhead.
  • We have reviewed dynamic shadow casting and optimised how and where this is being done.
  • We have removed unnecessary shadow casting from lights in the menu background for a good framerate improvement while in the menu.
  • There have also been a few other minor optimisations to various areas around the game.
Keyboard Support
We have added support for the following keyboards:
  • Turkish
  • Russian
  • Czech
  • US_International

  • Culling on SD40-2 when looking at rear wall has been fixed
  • The Dynamic brake on the HUD was showing positive amps when it should be negative, this has now been fixed.
  • Fuel consumption values for all three locomotives have been adjusted.
Gameplay
  • A number of achievements were being issued simultaneously for incorrect reasons, these have all been reviewed and are now working correctly.
  • We identified an additional situation in which a train could derail and not cause the end-game sequence to trigger.
Audio
  • Compressor and Brake discharge audio volume has been increased

3. Copy the files within this folder to a brand new folder on your PC, for example, on the desktop.

4. Load Steam and swap back to the main Train Sim World game experience (right click on the game in your library, choose Properties, select the BETAS tab, go back to NONE.)

About This Game



Train Sim World®: CSX Heavy Haul is an all-new First Person Simulator that brings to life the experience of operating powerful and heavy freight trains on one of America’s most stunning and famous railroads; Sand Patch Grade.



Powered by Dovetail Games’ new SimuGraph® vehicle dynamics engine and Unreal Engine 4® technology, Train Sim World uses real-world data to accurately replicate the performance, sounds and feel of real trains.

Featuring complete in-cab interactivity, take control of one of the three featured locos and feel the detail as you sit in the driver’s seat and bring some of the world’s biggest and most powerful trains roaring to life.



You’ve been invited to work for CSX Transportation as a railroad engineer delivering important cargo on tight schedules. With six challenging scenarios and many places to explore including Rockwood Mine, Sand Patch Summit and Cumberland Yard, your skill, focus and endurance will be tested to the limit.

Experience a full ‘day-in-the-life’, with the brand new Service Mode, which features the recreation of a 24-hour timetable based on real-world operations. No two days are the same. Hop on and off a range of services as they carry out their duties. Take control or ride along, the choice is yours.



Train Sim World caters to players of all ability levels, featuring seven guided tutorials that cover everything from getting started with the software for newcomers to operating the locomotives for more advanced players. Climb into the cab and learn to operate the three very different locos step-by-step, quickly moving from novice to expert.

Live out your rail fan dreams exploring the highly detailed and immersive environment and finding the best vantage point from which to capture those once-in-a-lifetime shots.
