What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Transporter turned out to be slightly more ambitious than I initially anticipated. Early Access gives me the option to focus on optimizing the game and balancing the economy and difficulty while adding new features and improving the game in ways I wouldn't be able to do otherwise.
The other reason is to see what the community would be interested in and give me a chance to directly add requested features and content into the game, in order to create the best transport sim game possible.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“9 - 12 months. I don't want to stay in Early Access very long, but I have a certain idea of what I would like to add before any kind of full release. Hopefully, with your help, I'll be able to get there within this timeline.
Development will continue out of early access and well.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Current plans include planes, different map environments, workshop integration, and optimization for large maps. The end goal is to create AI competition, but that is still in the distant future.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

  • Procedurally generated maps, currently limited to medium size (256x256).
  • Freeplay and Career Mode.
  • Progression system with experience for stations, vehicles and industries.
  • Research, Company expertise and Upgrades
  • Rail, road, and water transport - Over 100 vehicles - trains, semi-trucks, buses, ships, and barges, including maglev trains, experimental hydrogen-powered locomotives, and electric autonomous vehicles.
  • Over 50 different industries and over 40 types of cargo to transport.
  • Unique station types, like refrigerated stations, loading docks, and different bulk-loading stations.
  • Level Editor for editing and creating custom maps

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Final price will be slightly higher, depending on how much content I’ll be able to add during early access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Discord will most likely be the best place to reach me, make suggestions and requests, and for me to connect with the community. I’ll try to be active here on Steam as well, but to be honest, I probably won't be the most responsive dev ever, because the development process takes up way too much of my time, so Discord gives me a chance to gather everything in one place and turn your suggestions into reality more easily. I’m excited to see what people would like added into the game, especially in terms of vehicles, industries, and cargo and eventually even features, maps, scenarios, etc.”
