Re: Steam Summer Sale

Hi, In the past I have been able to purchase a Train Simulator 2016 Bundle being offered in a Sale (even though I already had TS2016 installed) and it just added the Rolling Stock items/Routes included in the Bundle that I did not already own. Today I have tried to add the "UK First Class Edition" ...

Re: DtG games coming to XBOX.

Lets just say as a ballpark example, take the xbone controller with its two analog sticks and dpad direction keys. On a steam engine you could have it toggled so one of the analog stick controls the regulator, you could even work the complex motion of rocking the regulator like on a real engine by ...

Re: DTG Class 68

Excellent news and much anticipated add on Glad dtg contacted chiltern to record actual class 68 sounds for this it will be epic. Just wonder how long until certain people who always shout the usual "AP sound pack" appear and ignore the fact dtg are using actual sounds. Yet no doubt they will still...

Just like his amazing class 319 and 456 so thank you jordi as always another perfect example of a developer making us great content Sounds very much like your having a pop...

Re: Armstrong Powerhouse Class 205 Thumper!!

I hope the engine idle will have that distinctive 'hunting' sound That 'Hunting" in idle is when the electric train heat was used. I believe the idle RPMs was 620, instead of the normal 450, the former being the equivalent to notches 4 and 5. Thanks Thanks for the explanation. It certainly is disti...

Looks and sounds great. :D I hope the engine idle will have that distinctive 'hunting' sound. Like here... https://youtu.be/pH57NzMtIT4?t=51s Thanks all! The hunting is there to an extent but not like that...! Crikey, sounds like the fan on that was working double time. That's how I remember them :...

Re: DTG to make Chatham main line

Sorry I cannot respond further, as apparently I'm "not qualified to comment", because I haven't purchased the pack.

But if you are going to try a prove a point about the BR Blue era by using a photo, try one that doesn't show modern day 'heritage livery' recreations.

Re: DTG to make Chatham main line

Curious, Varney. You KNOW exactly what is correct. Because you know. Why? BECAUSE YOU JUST KNOW. And any comments to the contrary are merely the DTG Defense Corps in action. You ask for evidence to the contrary. It is presented. You deny it. A bit like denying climate change. And that the world is ...

Re: DTG to make Chatham main line

Additionally BR Blue era class 73's did not carry an orange cantrail stripe or yellow painted steps and only the named class 33's wore red buffer beams. In that case I look forward to seeing your reskins and nameplates to expand everyone's collections. ...and why should I create reskins just becaus...
