‘Transport Update’ 1.5 has been released on Railway Empire’s Public Beta branch!



New features
  • Placing warehouses near cities or rural businesses will open up new possibilities in transport.
    • As warehouses will now get supplied by surrounded farms and businesses, players will have more possibilities to get those supplies to other cities.
  • A filter has been added for the “Replace locomotives” dialogue in the engine shed. With this, it is now possible to replace locomotives based on station type (city, rural).

Adjustments
  • Bug fixes have been made related to constructing crossings.
  • We have ironed out some AI problems in complex track laying mode.
  • [Mexico DLC] Mexico region: We have fixed passenger wagons in the 100 years scenario.
  • Many more bugfixes.
    • A big thank you to the Railway Empire Community for every reported bug, both big and small. Please keep it up!

Update Notes

About This Game

United States, 1830: ‘The New World’ is in its ascendancy. Industry is booming, and the race is on to establish the most dominant and powerful rail empire in all of North America. It’s time to outthink and outmaneuver your competitors as you lead your company into the 20th century!



In Railway Empire, you will create an elaborate and wide-ranging rail network, purchase over 40 different trains modelled in extraordinary detail, and buy or build railway stations, maintenance buildings, factories and tourist attractions to keep your travel network ahead of the competition. You’ll also need to hire and manage your workforce if you want to ensure an efficient train service, whilst also develop over 300 technologies ranging from mechanical improvements to the trains themselves to workplace infrastructures and advanced amenities as you progress through five eras of technological innovations.



However, you can’t just build and research your way to the top – the competition never sleeps, and to keep your business on track you’ll have to survive against up to three rival tycoons. To get to the top you may have to resort to more cutthroat tactics as you attack and sabotage your opponents through raids and industrial espionage.
