TRAIN SIM WORLD 2 ROADMAP- 13 JULY 2021

In this week's Roadmap our focus is on the suite of route upgrades the summer update will bring.
Over the past year Adam and the Preservation Crew team have worked through a lot of our existing routes to improve their performance, fix outstanding issues and add extra functionality. Since some of the legacy Add-On routes for Train Sim World 2 date back several years they don't have all the features that might be found in a new release. The Preservation Crew gives us the opportunity to change that and breathe new life into familiar settings.
As part of the summer update West Somerset Railway, Main-Spessart Bahn and the Bakerloo line will be upgraded. This includes features such as passenger information screens, the ability to climb up to a platform from the track at any point, animated crossing gates and more. There are additional changes particular to individual routes that will be detailed in the update notes when it releases but they include the reintroduction of London Landmarks for console and speed limit triggers for Bakerloo Line.
Elsewhere in the Roadmap we've added the dedicated latest generation console releases, coming as part of the Rush Hour release later in the summer. Launching on both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S - These will be free to upgrade to if you already own Train Sim World 2 on the respective PlayStation 4 / Xbox One platforms.
We've also added both the Scenario Planner and Livery Designer upgrades to the In Planning section. Neither of these upgrades are due with Rush Hour but work has begun on defining what the second version of these releases will include. You've given us a great deal of excellent feedback on both tools and we know where the pain points and most obvious opportunities to improve them are.
Each of these three focal points in this Roadmap update have a lot more detail to them than is listed here and we want to discuss them further on the live stream. Unfortunately, this week's Roadmap coincides with 3 of the Roadmap regulars being unavailable so we're postponing the live stream by a week. This isn't entirely out of the ordinary. Many members of the team will take a few days off at this point in the year so that we can be at full speed after the launch of the big annual release.
If you have questions for the stream please post them on the forum and we'll collate them before next week.
