      Manufacturer's Description

      A Journey Like no Other

      Trainz: A New Era completely revamps the Trainz series, developed to take the train simulation genre to new heights. The all-new graphics engine brings historic and modern routes to life in eye-watering realism. Operate the most famous locomotives and explore fascinating routes in exotic locations all over the globe. Trainz: A New Era will provide even modest train-fans with hundreds of hours gameplay in single and multiplayer.

      If that's not enough, you can unleash your creative side and design your own routes! Share and enjoy them with our huge community or use the Download Station to access 250.000+ DLC items created by the biggest Trainz fans worldwide.

      • All-new graphics engine with full world shadows and per-pixel lighting
      • Multiplayer - Share your enthusiasm with other rail fans and combine your efforts with others to operate a working rail line!
      • Our most accurate simulation yet with real time world physics (and editing tools!)
        Calculated at 30 times a second, our physics use a variety of configurable inputs such as engine powers, train weight and rolling resistance whilst taking into account factors like track gradient, curve resistance and track adhesion for each train car when accelerating or decelerating. The brand new real time physics editing tools allow players to tune physics 'on-the-fly' to take their simulation's performance even further.

        Brand-new Real-time Physics Editing tools enable users to enter known specifications to accurately monitor all the forces at work. Things like tractive effort, drawbar pull or brake pipe pressure can be monitored at a specific point along the train and input values adjusted "on-the-fly". By analysing and tuning performance without leaving the simulation, real-world train characteristics can be matched perfectly. (It's a bit like running a virtual dynamometer car).

        If physics aren't your thing, don't worry. You can leave the fine-tuning of your favourite locomotive's performance to the experts whilst still having the choice between 'Realistic Mode' or 'Easy Mode' driving options.
      • Procedurally animated spline junctions - An updated set of track laying tools in Surveyor that automatically adds frogs/vee, blades, and checkrails in the correct place on the tracks when making a switch, turnout or junction. The blades then animate as the junction direction is changed.
      • Realistic cab sway and external train motion - Using a new suspension modelling system and additional track and traincar parameters, cab sway and "car rocking" from both internal and external perspective will provide more realistic train motion visuals. When running on rough track, cars will wobble and shake independently.
      • Smoke and weather affected by world objects - New particle effects and collision systems will have rain hit terrain or the roof of a station, smoke hit the underside of a bridge or the top of a tunnel and change velocity and direction and flow more naturally.
