TRAIN SIM WORLD 2 ROADMAP - 23 FEBRUARY 2021

Welcome to the new-look, slimline Train Sim World 2 Roadmap.
Our aim is to provide you with an overview of major development work taking place for the game, as well as providing insight into improvements and fixes that have been completed. Previously we have listed every item that was receiving development attention, however this has since proved to be unreliable. Instead, we will go into greater detail for fixes and improvements when development work is complete - when the item in question reaches the "upcoming" stage. We'll then give further insight still when work is scheduled for release (Next Arrival), with all changes listed in full in our release notes. The Roadmap will also detail any concluded investigations where no further action in planned.
If something has been removed from the Roadmap it is because work can proceed no further. In the case of fixes this is often because investigations have been unable to replicate the problem, and without the ability to reproduce an issue it's near impossible to fix. In the case that we have been unable to reproduce a problem we welcome further information from players to help identify and resolve a problem. Please use the Technical Reports forum for this, as others will help add extra detail. The key to identifying these problems is that it is repeatable. If we can repeat it, we can fix it.
The most notable item removed from the Roadmap in this update is the expansion of Bakerloo services. This has been on the Roadmap since the first release and is held up behind 3-4 core upgrades before it can be tackled. The work of adding additional services is relatively minor, however the likelihood that all services cease working is higher than acceptable. Our hope is that as soon as the improvements to the dispatcher and other associated systems is complete we'll have the expansion to Bakerloo services as quickly as possible. The Roadmap is not the place for speculative or hopeful items however, so we've removed Bakerloo service expansion until we're confident it will be delivered.
In this update we have two new releases making an appearance for the first time: the Standard 1938 Tube Stock and Glasgow Cathcart Circle. To help give an understanding of how long the wait is likely to be for these new releases all route and loco Add-Ons will be listed in their current expected respective release order. Given that there are multiple teams working on these Add-Ons it's possible the order will change, but the Roadmap will always be accurate when it is released.
