Dear community - Update 1.4 is out now!


This is a rather big one.
The following changes have been done:

-Added animated sawmill Pine Valley Lumber Co. with log pond
It is now possible to transport timber logs to the sawmill which then can be dumped into a log pond. The logs are then automatically processed and your company will recieve a payment

-Added logging camp Silver Creek. It is now possible to order logs at the logging camp in Silver Creek. The logs have to be loaded onto the cars and transported to the sawmill


-Added realistic lighting. The entire lighting of the map has recieved an overhaul. Shadows and fog along with new textures give the map a more realistic feeling


-Added new rail textures

-Added day/night cycle: The game has now a constant day and night cycle.


-Added new watertower. The watertower has been retextured. The pipe recieved two animated steel wires


-Added company-screen. By pressing "F2" the company screen appears giving you information about your spendings and earnings

-Added interactive freight car iron bars: The iron bars of the freight cars can now be toggled by pressing F4/F6

-Added new log models and textures

-Added river segment

-Added new sound effects

-Adjusted crane controls: logs which are hooked onto the crane can now be turned by tapping "Q" or "E"

-Adjusted depth of field

-Adjusted help screen

-Adjusted switch controls: switches can now only be changed by directly looking over the switch lever and pressing "left mouse button"

-Fixed derailing issues by adjusting physX contact parameters. Derailments are still possible e.g when going too fast over a rail joint

-Improved loading: The loading time has been reduced

-Changed track layout of the stations

Starting a new game is recommended!




I hope you enjoy! And as always thanks for your support!
