Compared to RTT3 and even OTTD (free!) this game is abysmally simplistic and downright broken. (PS. I refunded)
To give you an idea, you HAVE to assign a platform to each line, every train is it's own line. Doing more than 4 trains on 2 platforms is a nightmare, there is no time-tabling, no chain signals, no pre-signals. You can't do terminus RO-RO nor drive-through stations.
This game is graphics and zero substance ;(
And also, maintenance sheds are in stations, so 5+ trains can stop for 3+ days in a station on their assigned platform, and there is no way to prevent this.... broken by design imo. in OTTD you could make depots have their own line and even integrate them into your pathing

I beat the game yesterday, enjoyed every minute of my 2nd playthrough.
Don't worry, it's long enough for $25
I started a game when it was still in EA a while ago. The very last part wasn't finished back then. A few days ago the devs released an update to complete the game and make it v1.0.
Taken together the playthrough took me a little less than 100 hours but I did a lot of exploring (never got bored!).

Maybe this was popular back in WWII ??, after life & death out in the field , soldiers sat around making props to hide around the tents and play Sherlock Holmes !!??

What really tickles my nerd side is that Elite Dangerous is based on scientific model of our universe and I can go to real planetary systems that actually exist in our Milky Way (yes, I do know that a lot of the systems were created by Star Forge, but they do keep up with NASA and new discoveries), really helps with the immersion and whole feel of the world I get to play in.
The fact that I can go and track down Voyager 1 and listen to the golden record is mind blasting on its own. It's not much, they didn't have to put it there, but they did and those kind of little things make this game awesome in my books.
Space trucking a side, there are lots of cool ED moments out there

You're right, can't wait for X4 to get here either. It's going to be so much better!

Your game trusts the client for a lot of important information. I'm not really sure it can ever be made even remotely secure.
