What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“There’s a lot of players out there who loved to build these type of train sets when they were younger and it would be great to hear about what restricted them from building the very best train set they could. Having the community suggest objects will ultimately produce a much more interesting game. The game is very much a sandbox at the moment, but some would prefer a more structured experience and we'd like to hear from them what objectives or challenges they'd like to face in this environment.””

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We cannot say with certainty as we anticipate the suggestions and feedback from the community to see where they want us to take the game.”

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

“Many more objects to place in the environment, new environments to explore, objectives to complete and we are also looking towards more customization options for trains, buildings etc.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The games track building systems are nearly complete, Players can operate and drive the train, there are a few objectives and a number of items to place which are both cosmetic and interactive.”

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

“The price may increase with substantial content updates. We will do our best to let the community know in advance so that they are aware of any changes to the games price.”

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

“The game in its current state is designed to be quite modular. This means that the community can suggest object ideas in such a large number, we can then whittle them down into some great ideas that we would not have come up with ourselves. We will also be looking to support Steam Workshop which will allow us to play tracks created by other players and see what kind of exciting sets the community build.”

New Update Now Live! Multiple trains, Junction switches, new languages!

Hello everybody!
The content in this update has been many months in the making and I'm so happy to be able to finally release it all. Multiple new features, new ways to play, new objects, and new languages! Plus of course the usual batch of fixes and polishing.

:HealUp: Trains are available in the Toy Box
You can now place a second, third, fourth.. as many trains as you like!
Once a second train has been placed, pressing T will open the new train menu.



Here you have access to options such as choosing which train to drive, adding carriages, customisation and starting points. This menu will eventually replace the carriages and start point objects in the toy box, though they are still there at the moment and will still only apply to the starting train. When you have only one train, holding T will now open the train menu instead of resetting the train.

This is a big milestone and a lot of different parts of the game have been tweaked and reworked to allow for more than one train. Many interactive objects have been temporarily moved to the experimental category due to big changes made so they would work with multiple trains. There is still a lot of work to be done on them so please report any issues in the forums!

:HealUp: Junction switch
Junction pieces can now be clicked when in build mode to automatically guide a train down that path. This is very useful with multiple trains since you no longer need to be driving a train to make it turn!



:HealUp: Tracks has been translated to:
  • German
  • Russian
  • Chinese (Simplified)
This is a first round of translations and my first time ever doing it as a developer so please excuse any mistakes you find! Reports in the forum of any issues/problems are greatly appreciated.
More languages are coming soon!

:HealUp: Carriages now match the style of the train they're attached to

Gingerbread carriages coming soon

New Objects:

:romopolis_house: Wind Turbine
:romopolis_house: Crane
:romopolis_house: Sailboat



:romopolis_house: Scooter

:fix: Holding T now opens the train menu instead of resetting the train

New Update Now Live! Train Customisation, Circus Items, Camping Items



:HealUp: Train customisation

The Scenery menu has new options for changing the look of your train:
  • Individually pick colors for the body, base and trim
  • 3 paint patterns: Blank, Lines and Checkerboard
  • Paint condition - Optional chipping and damage
  • Paint thickness - How intense you want the colors to be
  • Option to hide the whistle
Styles are currently saved and loaded within your track files. Let me know if you would prefer them to be in their own little category.

There is a checkbox to prevent your current style from being overwritten when loading a new save.



:HealUp: Improved Scenery controls

Fog Color has been replaced with Sky Color.

It works in a very similar way but now you can set the color of the sky (and fog) even with a very low Density value - no more default yellow when you want a clear day.

Lowering Fog Density now also changes how quickly it becomes thick, so slightly lower values can fade out far away objects while close ones remain clear.

If you load a save made in a previous version you might need to tweak the values a bit to get the same look that you had before.

:HealUp: Updated engine

Tracks now runs on the latest version of the Unreal Engine.

Upgrading can add new bugs (reports in the forum are appreciated) but keeping up-to-date is important for the long term health of the game, and the latest version includes some nice new features for me as the developer.

:HealUp: New Objects

:romopolis_house: Funfair Tent
:romopolis_house: Circus Tent
:romopolis_house: Ferris Wheel
:romopolis_house: Hot Air Balloon


:romopolis_house: Lorry
:romopolis_house: Caravan
:romopolis_house: Camping tent
:romopolis_house: Barbecue


:romopolis_house: Bushy Tree
:romopolis_house: Palm Tree
:romopolis_house: Palm Tree Group


Changes:

:fix: Fixed Track Supports sometimes being flipped when loaded
:fix: Fixed certain objects immediately creating another copy when placed
:fix: Fixed Scenery Tone not being saved correctly
:fix: Various improvements to the quality of the train textures
:fix: Fixed the snapping size option failing when it became incredibly small
:fix: Fixed collision shapes for the lamp and TV stand in Modern Apartment
:fix: Fixed the train getting stuck when running through tunnels in quick succession
:fix: Fixed an issue when changing level while mid-transition from the menu to the game
:fix: You will no longer be shown a red Down piece option if you're already on the floor
:fix: Moved Turntable from the experimental category
:fix: Color wheel shade now adjusts based on the value slider
:fix: Added an animation to make it clearer when the color wheel switches function
:fix: Scenery sliders now work with percentages instead of arbitrary numbers
:fix: Fixed scenery options not updating when loading if the save has the default settings
:fix: Fixed some text in the Toy Box not changing size with icon scale
:fix: Fixed tutorial saying you need to hold Alt for alternate mode

About This Game

Tracks is a beautiful toy train set builder which gives you the tools to play without limits.

Jump into an expansive sandbox and lay down track pieces, create bridges and build towns with Tracks’ easy to get to grips with gameplay.

Once you’re ready, hop into the driver’s seat and ride your little train in first-person view – controlling the speed and direction, as you ride the rails.



Start with a pre-made environment, be it a modern lounge or a night time Winter wonderland, or jump into an entirely blank world canvas. Add trees and foliage from various world biomes, buildings, stations, animals, vehicles, decor and more. Customise your world further by altering terrain and fog colours. Make your train your own, selecting colours and patterns.

Play with boosters, musical bells and ramps to make your train set an exciting ride! For a more complex railway system, add junctions and even introduce multiple trains.



From sprawling green countryside to desert towns, and atmospheric foggy industry sites to vibrant circus setups, countless options await you and your train set. Let your imagination thrive and build the toy train set of your dreams.
