Berkshire liveries - v1.158



I hope you all had a great Christmas!
Custom liveries for the Berkshire and it's tender are now available.
Next up is the Pullman carriages, which will be getting custom liveries separately in the next update.

Along with the new liveries, here are the rest of the features included in this update:
  • Boats are now paintable! the two small boats can now be painted
  • Using the "-basic" launch tag will now force the game to use minimal settings (e.g. shadows and render distances are automatically set to lowest). this is useful for improving performance if you are unsure as to what you need to adjust
  • The missing quickmod locomotive now looks different (this will show up in replacement when a map uses mods that you do not have)
  • Fixed wheels being in the wrong position on quickmods when picked up
  • Fixed alignment of rails on the sharp set of points
  • changed the painter models for track colors & points position painters (now with clearer icons to show what they do)
  • The Christmas menu is now back to normal

The next update will be based around the Pullman liveries, and will also include a range of smaller bug fixes and such.
Enjoy!

Christmas magazine! - v1.157



Time for another Issue of Model Rolling Line!
This one is a special Christmas issue, and talks about the new Berkshire & Pullman carriages (and more).

You can find the new magazine issue in-game or you can also read it on the Gaugepunk Games website

Along with the new magazine issue, there are a couple of small fixes included in this update:
  • Fixed train wheels being displayed incorrectly in the distance on custom livery wagons
  • Fixed a couple of mistakes in the previous magazine
  • Made small changes to the train movement which should help prevent "frozen trains" that some people have been experiencing at very low framerates (trains would stop moving completely)
  • Added red light to the back of the green Pullman car (i forgot to in the last update)

There's going to be shift in focus to gameplay features & improvements after Christmas, and I'm thinking of starting with making a brand new item drawer system!
I'll also be working on a new "themed update" based on the Weka Pass in New Zealand throughout January! This update will be adding a new official map & trains, and something everyone's been asking for since the games release, turntables!

Enjoy!

And Merry Christmas!

About This Game

The entire railway fits within one large workroom, with tons of surrounding free bench space for you to experiment with your own custom creations.

Play in VR or on PC


Rolling Line has been built from the beginning to be both a PC game (first person style) and a VR game.
You can play with a keyboard a mouse just like any PC game or train sim, but if you have a VR headset (Oculus, Vive and WMR) connected then it will automatically launch in VR.


Just like a model railway


This railway is designed to look, feel and operate like a real hobbyists model railroad, with stylized switch boards to control the tracks, portable hand-held controllers to drive trains, and complete control over the rooms lighting.

Freely push wagons around on the rails with your hands to build up trains as long as you could possibly want, and take control of any number of different locomotives (using multiple controllers).

Build your own tracks and scenery


Place pieces of track and scenery to build your own huge (or tiny) railways!
Almost every tree and building from the pre-made layout can also be used in your own creations.

Paint different colors and styles onto terrain, trees and tracks and place chunks of terrain to build hills and path ways.

You can build your custom layouts entirely by hand in VR, or play on PC to make use of PC-only map making shortcuts.

You can share your layouts on the Steam workshop and easily download other peoples layouts.
All layouts you make can be easily backed up and shared in plain text, which means you can copy-paste an entire save game between friends!


Explore in human scale or miniature


Switch between human-sized room scale and railway-sized miniature scale at any time, any where. You are not limited to only driving trains in miniature, but can fully explore the entire railway at the scale of a person.

Drive trains from right inside the cab in miniature, and view the world from the driver's perspective!

While in miniature scale you will experience dynamic time, weather and unique terrain and skyboxes that extend beyond the shape of the railway,

Choices of locomotion


Choose between a range of locomotion options, including standard teleporting, grabbing the world around you to move yourself around, free directional movement with the trackpad and any other locomotion options suggested by the community that can be added!

Other options like manual rotation (if you cannot use room scale) and setting your player height help support a range of VR setups.




Rolling line offers an immersive experience of both controlling a model railroad and driving trains from within the world itself. Whether you enjoy the diverse scenery of New Zealand, the joy of controlling model trains, the experience of a scenic railway journey or the freedom of building your own tracks and creations, then Rolling Line can deliver.
