The last release to Train Sim introduced a new Shinkansen Bullet Train. For this update I decided to add a Japan themed level for the new bullet train.
After months of hard work I am happy to announce that the new Train Sim update has been deployed to Android, iOS, Windows Store & Amazon platforms. You can now enjoy the new Japan level on your favourite mobile device or PC.
This month I am celebrating Train Sim 20th Millionth download on Google Play! That is 20 million of unique Google Play (Android) users that were kind enough to download Train Sim to their mobile devices. For perspective, 20 million users is more then the population of countries like Romania, Netherlands, Greece and Portugal. When I started this project more then 5 years ago I had no idea that it would be enjoyed by so many people. I am so thankful for the continued support of all the Train Sim fans over the last 5 years. I am looking forward to the next 5 years of continued improvements & development of Train Sim. I can’t wait to see what the next 5 years will bring.
Since its now 60 days before Christmas I decided its time to update my Christmas Trains game in time for the Holidays! https://goo.gl/4ScW5X The update is now available for Android with iOS coming soon.
Train Sim Update with the new California Coast Level is now live for Android, Amazon, Mac & iOS. Enjoy the new California Level with beaches, cities, mountains and even a desert portion on your favourite mobile device.
This month I am working on a new California Coast Level for Train Sim. Work is going well, I did allot of experimenting but I think its coming along nicely. The new level will have a greener coast area and a more desert like theme further away from the coast. Here is a short preview video of the coast area including a beach. Coming Soon to Train Sim
Work Continues on Train Sim as I am in the process of rolling out the second update in less then a month. The main focus of these 2 updates was getting regular train wagons/cars to properly connect to shunting cars found on side tracks. I have to admit this turned out to be allot more difficult then I originally thought. After 2 updates I believe that I worked out all the major bugs and you should be able to build larger trains as shown in the above video.
While I was busy working on connecting cars the drivers decided to construct a Hand Car. This beauty is now available in Train Sim at an amazing top speed of 10 mph.
Although in most updates, Trains are the main feature, adding interesting rolling stock is also important. The above train wagon with a full 3D interior is now also available in Train Sim.
Over the next week or so I will be rolling out these awesome updates to all platforms including Mac OS, Windows Store, Amazon, iOS & Android
After that I hope that the new 300 Series Shinkansen 3D model will be done so I can begin working on adding it to Train Sim
