Users using scenery builder in the upcoming version of Train Driver 2 will benefit from curved switches. Full list of switches that will appear in the new builder is shown below. Those fall into three categories:
- one-sided – both curves with different radii diverge to the left or to the right
- two-sided – curves with different radii diverge each to the other side
- two-sided symmetrical – curves with the same radius diverge each to the other side
This categorization is also applied to the builder’s graphical interface.
In the upcoming version of Train Driver 2 a new PKP Intercity livery for couchette car of type 110A will be available, this time without the “oranges”.
When preparing the upcoming version of Train Driver 2, we introduced several improvements regarding GUI of main menu and scenery builder.
Scenery which is set up as a background for the main menu has less objects than before, what should improve computer performance when changing settings or waiting to enter the game. On the right side of the start screen a list of shortcuts to TD2 social media pages has been added.
Many options in the settings menu have been added with last patches, so that a user is able to configure the gameplay according to his own preferences. In order to increase readability of that menu the settings have been divided into four categories: Game, Graphics, Builder and Other.
Apart from new objects, scenery builder in the upcoming version will offer new functionalities as well. Using a new button located bottom left (marked as: 1) one can show or hide railway sleepers in the builder view. At the bottom, next to cursor coordinates (marked as: 2), an information about currently pointed object’s name is shown. A new button has been added bottom right (marked as: 3), with which a user is able to check, how many objects (to be precise: objects’ colliders) are in use on the currently built map. At the same time an information about the safe limit of objects used on one scenery will show up.
Scenery editor in the upcoming version of Train Driver 2 will allow putting new infrastructure elements along the track. Examples are shown below:
- dławiki torowe – impedance bonds
- skrzynka licznika osi – axle counter box
- skrzynka EON – audio frequency track circuit box
- skrzynka EOR – electric switch heating box
Objects created by chudya and RBach (Trainz).
EDIT: Not only axle counter box, but also axle counter itself will be available in the upcoming version! Model created by chudya.
Two new liveries for those EMUs will be provided for the upcoming version of Train Driver 2:
- EN57 – 961 in Lower Silesia livery
- EN71 – 046 in SKM Warsaw livery but with SKM Trójmiasto emblems… that’s a bit complicated…
