TRAIN SIM WORLD 2: ADD-ON MANAGER
**It’s been a long journey, but we’re happy to announce today that the Add-ons Manager has been released on console for Train Sim World 2 players. ** Initially, this was planned as a fix to issues surrounding the 64GB Add-ons limit for PlayStation 5 players - PS5 players were unable to see all of their downloaded add-ons when breaching 64GB worth of content. Our team have been working closely with Sony on this issue, who themselves had not seen any issues like this before, and we’ve been frequently providing progress updates in our Roadmaps. Solving this issue ultimately allows PS5 players to access all Train Sim World 2 add-ons without having to worry about the 64GB limit, and works by pre-loading routes and locomotives based on the content that players would choose to play. An added benefit to this was that memory usage may also drop slightly through the reduced ‘mounting’ of content during each session. After a phase of successful testing through our beta team, we believe that these memory improvements may possibly reduce (but not necessarily solve) the frequency of ‘Out of Memory’ crashes for players of 8th-generation consoles with lots of Add-ons installed, playing high-density routes. Whilst this isn’t intended to be a ‘silver bullet’ on the memory front (Xbox Series S players may not see any improvement, for example) it is a step in the right direction and we will continue to work on memory issues during subsequent testing and in future updates. We had previously stated that PC platforms would receive Add-ons Manager, but we saw negligible impact on the ‘Out of Memory’ errors, so didn’t want to overcomplicate things. As the majority of the work had been done on Train Sim World 2, we wanted to complete that in its entirety before porting the work onto Train Sim World 3 next. Now we’ve released on Train Sim World 2, Train Sim World 3 is our next focus, and we’ll provide an update on progress in October’s Roadmap, currently due on Thursday October 6th. This has been a long time coming, and we appreciate everyone’s patience as we’ve put together this solution for a complex issue. We hope this will provide a long-term, robust benefit for our console players. Please allow for 24 hours for the update to hit your console devices before contacting Dovetail Support, and let us know your feedback on our forums [http://forums.dovetailgames.com/threads/train-sim-world-add-ons-manager-is-here.59837/]

WHO’S READY FOR MORE? The Lake Guntersville Online Open Series is next up on the competitive calendar. Boats can hit the water on September 9 with the final round ending after a Championship Weekend on September 26. 3 rounds of competitive Bass fishing are just around the corner, and we can’t wait to see who comes out on top. You have just under 7 days to head out on Lake Guntersville, find your spots, and make sure you have the right gear to secure a MONSTER BAG. For those of you who are new to these tournaments, here’s a breakdown of how the event works. Tournament Rewards Every player who takes part in the event will be rewarded with a participation jersey and the winner will be the only player in the world to receive the winner’s jersey. Keep scrolling to check ‘em out! Lake Guntersville Lowdown Lake Guntersville was created by the Guntersville Dam in 1939 and is named after the town of Guntersville which is said to have received its name from an early settler of that region, John Gunter. In Bassmaster Fishing 2022, Lake Guntersville is a 42km2 stretch of water. To date over 4,000,000 fish have been caught with 1,130,918 of those being Largemouth Bass, 496,327 Spotted Bass, and 194,288 Smallmouth Bass. The saying goes “The early bird catches the worm” and that is certainly the case here with over half the total fish caught having been caught at sunrise! Once again the Jenko Fishing, Jenkolistic Swimbait seems to be the lure of choice but will it be in your load out throughout the competition? Good luck out there and tight lines
