Comprar Donner Pass Southern Pacific

 

Acerca de este contenido

Donner Pass: Southern Pacific puts you to the test on this world-famous railroad where engineers deal with steep grades, tight curves and seriously heavy trains as part of a day’s work. With more than 140 miles of track between Roseville and Reno and the dramatic Sierra Nevada landscape of the Donner Pass itself, there are hours of pleasure to be had driving through this incredible part of North America.

The first railroad through the Sierra Nevada mountains was opened by the Central Pacific Railroad way back in the 1860s, the culmination of a significant engineering challenge with a combination of tunnel-building and tough weather high in the mountains causing numerous problems for the Chief Engineer and his team. The line has changed ownership over the years, and different operators have chopped and changed the track layout and tunnel system in the Donner Pass region in order to keep maintenance costs manageable whilst keeping the railroad operational throughout the seasons.

Donner Pass: Southern Pacific puts you at the controls of Southern Pacific diesels in the early-1990s, taking trains between Roseville, California and Reno, Nevada through the foothills of the Sierra Nevada and high up through the incredible 7,000-foot Donner Pass. The trains are heavy, the railroad is tough and the scenery is awesome. So, start the motor, you have some real challenges ahead...

Includes:

  • 140+ mile railroad line between Roseville Yard, California and Reno, Nevada including the world-famous Donner Pass.
  • 12 scenarios
  • 5 diesel locomotives in early 1990s-era Southern Pacific livery:
  • SW1500 Diesel Switcher

  • C44-9W Diesel Locomotive

I am not sure about this one but I think it is boring in my opinion. The trains are slow and the route is extremely long. I only recommend it for people who enjoy watching the scenery and playing with freight trains.

Rating: 6/10

I'm mostly a quick-drive person, creating and testing my own consists on the grade. I was disappointed when I discovered all quick-drive routes are through the long tunnel and not the high pass. Further, there are no AI trains in quick drive to liven things up.

Aside from challenging grades coming up from the west, this route isn't very exciting, and the scenery is lacklustre. I'd give it a 4/10. If you are looking for scenery and grades, try the Canadian Mountain Passes instead.

I dunno why I'm giving it a good review, it's an EXTREMELY boring route.

Pros -
Fun, yet challenging gradients
giant selection of locos
scenery is beautiful
Snow texture is outstanding

Cons -
physics on locos are meh
Reno is too small
Overused horns on locos
Speed limits are VERY hard to follow

6/10 I got it bundled with TS2014. Wouldn't waste $40.

I nickname this route the donating pass for several reason, and most of them are negative. One this route is perhape the most boring route you will ever find even though I a huge american rail fan and I love American Frieght train. The scenery is reallly bad and look nothing like the real world. and the fact that I see a million 2D tree on the side of the mountain just put a FailFish on my head. The sceanrio are literally unplayable on this route, unless you hack the sceanrio or something, you will not only won't get a perfect score but you might not even get a positive score. and speaking of sceanrio, some of these sceanrio are repeative. I mean what the point having 2 sceanrio that is the same but only the weather is different. the loco is not too bad with the classic GP 9, SD 40, and oh I would challenge you to do this route in one go, it would probablt take 5 hour to finish this route

I feel very mixed about this route. This route has large yards for switching, includes lots of engines, and provides a challenge, although the route can get very dull and boring very quickly and takes a long time to travel through due to the low speed limit (i think 25mph). I would recommend this route if you like switching, and long, fairly slow freight trains, but I would not recommend this route for everyone.

There is a quite big issue with the included career scenarios - it's impossible to keep up with the timetables without exceeding speed limits. That makes some of the achievements unachievable. This particular problem has been known since the addon came out. And DTG never cared to fix it (but you can find fixed versions of the scenarios in the workshop which makes it all even more ridiculous because there clearly is a solution). The scenario length could be a big plus for some people (some are more than 3 hours long) but that timetable/speed limit bug just kills all the fun for everyone.

This addon is one of the worst and most disappointing ones I've played (and I own many) and I suggest to avoid it. Sherman Hill, Soldier Summit, Marias Pass routes (similar scenery) are a lot better.

Great route for people who likes climbing and pulling long heavy freights! Also good for people who likes to run passenger trains. The route can get boring at times and a bit laggy (depending on what PC you got) but its good.

Totally agree with all the negative reviews on this one I'm afraid. Career scenarios are broken. I even had my throttle at 100% for a full journey, breaking all speed limits, and still didn't meet the ETA's.

On top of that, speed limits of 25mph for what is quite frankly the most boring scenery in any of the dlc's, and one of the longest.

Terrible, avoid.

Nice scenary and a good run HOWEVER the career scenarios for this route are broken and impossible to complete with a positive score and no word of a fix by developers yet STILL. Not really worth the money unless you can score a cheap copy of TS2015 somewhere.

The Career missions are impossible to finish with anything else than 0 points, due (I think) to the game enforcing speed limits for freight trains where it should enforce those for passenger trains. There are also lots of small details that show that this DLC could have used some more rigorous playtesting.

Recently, I took a trip up to Roseville. It was a drive of four hours, and i made it to the yard.

Sadly, I did not see the world-famous SP train consists flying into the air and into the ground after having an engine hit a buffer inside the yard.

On a serious note, it is really touching to see this route recreated like this. I've been through Donner Pass many times, and I think that visually, it captures the feeling of the Sierra Nevadas very nicely.

The glitches don't necessarily take away from the experience of the route. In fact, they sometimes make it oddly amusing.

I would want to see a little more depth to the foliage in some areas on the route, especially in the foothills on the western slope of the pass.

Donner pass is, in one word, MASSIVE. value for money wise this is the route to get. You get several locomotives with the route, and several hundred miles of track to explore. I will admit with mountain railroading it will bet boring, but it is a fun route to drive trains on, it challenges you. Buy it on sale, its worth having.

Mixed review for this I'm afraid, there's more negative points then positive by a long way.

Positive:

Graphics look good: plenty of long haul running with American manifest trains, though slow going.
Good distance for Quick drive runs. Also a good collection of US rolling stock, when your purchase the DLC.

Negative:

Standard scenario's, cannot be done with out speeding bar the last one.
Career scenario's, all bar the last one are not achievable. (yet they charge you for it)
Save game function, always reloads to the wrong engine, causing problems.

My real bug bear is this, at this time of review 2/6/15 this DLC has been out a long time, and nobody at DTG has bothered to fix anything, yet as I stated above, they are charging you for it. I'm sure if it was DTG staff buying something they's be complaining. Yet it's fell on stony ground with DTG, after numerous complaints from users, over numerous years.

I give it 2/5 good graphics, nice collection of us rolling stock, if you enjoy us railroading. Everything else is bad, VERY BAD!

I can't say for sure that this is my favorite DLC, but it's up there pretty close. At first I didn't like it at all. I love the career scenarios are rarely finish standard ones. Several of the career scenarios are completely broken as far as their timeline goes. In fact, I believe only one works right. In one (very long at 210 min), the speed limit is set for freight but you are carrying passengers and the scenario thinks the speed limits are set accordingly.

There are also not really 12 scenarios. There are six, but both career and standard. The standard ones work perfectly fine of course as the speed limits don't matter.

The route is, at over 140 miles, one the longest available. It's very mountainous but still varied.

Pros:
+ It's long! Takes several hours to run end to end.
+ Comes with quite a few different locomotives. That's better than most of the new ones that come with one or two. They are all reasonably well done and in the SP livery.
+ The route has some of the steepest grades I've been able to find anywhere in TS. There is a very short spot of 3.2% and longer stretches of 2.7 and 2.9. I use it frequently to weight test consists.
+ Two large train yards and many stops allow for a lot of possibilities when creating custom scenarios.
+ All achievements are possible despite career scenarios being broken. Simply drive through them and finishing will get you the achievements if you care about them.

Cons:
- Broken career scenarios which DTG has refused to fix despite being told exactly how to do so by a forum member who himself made a fix. That fix somewhat mitigates the con here, but it's still sloppy work on DTG's part.
- There are several spots where speed limit changes are not marked properly on the HUD. There is one that is not marked properly on the track.
- There are a few buildings that could have used greater detail. Relatively minor, to me at least.

This route is also home to various interesting locomotives that are separate DLC's such as the Cab Forward and the Zephyr. If you like mountains, and don't care about the situation with the career scenarios (remember there is a fix on the workshop), you'll love it!

Note: The fix adds in new scenarios. You will see both listed in the possible scenarios to play. They are replica's with the speed limits fixed. I mention this as some may not find that adequate.

Thedonner pass route is on the whole a good, well modeled route witch I would recommend to anyone who likes american trains. However I would definatly reccomend getting scenarios for it off the workshop rather than playing the included ones,though to be fair it is an old route.

The Donner Pass route is, in my opinion, the worst and most boring route available for Train Simulator. It goes from nowhere to nowhere with nothing of interest in between. It is very long, which some might see as an advantage, but with a 25mph speed limit along most of its length it is almost 4 hours of utter tedium to travel the full length. Those looking to earn experience points in career mode should give this one a miss because most of the scenarios cannot be completed with a positive score due to the simple fact that the speed limit is 25mph but you need to travel at an average 28mph to stick to the timetable. So, you can either stick to the speed limits and build up huge penalties for lateness or accumulate even more speeding penalties. It is typical of Dovetail Games that this problem has never been fixed in the 4 years since the game was first issued. If you want a US mountain pass route, try the Stevens Pass - it has better scenery and some interesting towns, ports and industries along the way.

I live within driving distance of this line. I have been researching this line in order to model it in HO here at home. When I stumbled on to TS 2015 I was pleasantly surprised. Now, I get to virtually drive along the places I want to model! Top notch! In addition to that, I get to drive the SP AC-12 Cab forward! There's one at the Sacramento rail museum, and having the opportunity to drive a virtual AC-12 is a delight. Now, if I could only get the smell of hot oil and creosote from the rails! Well, you can't have everything but Donner pass comes close. Highly recommended. The only difference I see is the they have changed the Reno end of the line in recent years and this has the rails still at grade level. A minor difference to say the least.

Career scenarios totally broken, cannot finish one scenario on time. Via careful calculations, even if you drive at max line speed throughout, you still can't make the checkpoints on time, by a large margin.

This is a totally unplayable DLC, all other pros people say are irrelevant. What is the points for all those pros when I lost the will to play after the first hour? A cruel and punishing route that destroys your patience and self confidence.

I almost didn't buy this route because I have Marias Pass already, but I saw it on a Twitch broadcast this week, and after watching a scenario on it, decided to buy it especially since it is on sale for 40% off. Am I glad I did, the scenery is spectacular and there are loads of free scenarios for it at the workshop. I also got the SP SD70 and SP Sd45 on sale at the same time, which adds alot to this route as far as the scenarios you can run. I give it an B+.

The only negative is the career Scenarios. Don't expect to get any positive points when you run some of them like "Getting Involved". There is no way you can run the scenario on time and score points, because the time alloted isn't long enough and the train won't go fast enough anyway. /

This is hands down the best non third party DLC in this entire game. it has 6 diffent kinds of engines (Dash 9, SD40T-2, SD40-2, SW1500, F7A&B, and GP9.) It is INCREDIBLY scenic, chalenging, fast and slow. They used all wooden track AND did not falsely advertise, and most importantly made a great route. Mostly based on the 70s-90s. 10/10

To be honest, this route is very hard for me to reccomend.
Pros:
-Lots of engines. The variety of SP engines is wonderful, you can do a lot with what you're given, and if you need more, more is provided as additional DLC.
-The route is highly detailed. It does look and feel like the sierra nevadas.
-Large yards at both ends of the route allow for lots of switching.
-Has a good presence on the Steam Workshop.
-maintaining low speeds is a really good challenge on the mainline
Cons:
-This route is very buggy. Aside from some scenarios not working properly (I once got an "invalid consist" glitch after spending a good 90 minutes on a career scenario), along with this, I've come across a few invisible buildings, and many signals along the route, for me anyways, have invisible stands, that cause the signals to float midair, which can be really distracting and immersion ruining, which is essential for a route like this because...
-scenarios are really really long. There are very few towns along the route, and with the exception of Sparks and Reno, they are all very spread apart. Due to this, the scenarios included take very long to complete, and are actually kinda boring after a while.
-this route is NOT beginner friendly. at all. I still have no idea why this was included in the TS2014 package, but this route is really really bad for people new to train simulator. Because of the sheer length of the route, how long scenarios are, and how difficult it is to manage consists going up and down really rough slopes, this route is incredibly difficult to get the hang of without prior experience. Plus, the low speeds will get incredibly boring for new players.
-Honestly, not a fan of the overall look of this route. Its really really brown, IMO. It doesn't look unrealistic, its just not a very pretty route.
-There is almost no change in scenery at all. Its literally all just big brown mountains. There is no variety at all with this route, you start in the mountains, you end in the mountains. This may seem like not that big of a deal, but trust me, after staring at mountains for hours at a time, you'll beg for something different.

Despite all this, I would reccomend this route for one thing. The Southern Pacific Engines are pretty good, and if you want to run them as unpatched locomotives on any UP route, you'll have everything you need. Unless this really appeals to you, I would not reccomend this route to you. I would CERTAINLY not reccomend it if you're not already an avid North American Freight RailSimmer, are new to Train Simulator, or this is the first time you've ever heard of "Southern Pacifc".
If you do want to get into North American Freight, I would direct you to lots of other routes, mainly Marias Pass, but unless you're really into SP, you should buy something else.
