Dovetail Games offers Train Simulator 2018on Steam,
the latest installment in their Windows railroad series formerly known as
RailWorks. And not to worry about building this out, as since add-ons for
the previous versions remain compatible, there is also $7,210.88 in DLC
available for purchase.
This trailer shows off the new version, and here's word:
Simulator 2018 fully immerses you in a world of trains, transporting you to a
place where you decide what to do, where and when. Experience the challenge of
mastering a wide variety of different locomotives and learning the routes in
every direction. Unlock your creative potential using powerful tools to create
your very own routes and scenarios, or download those created by other Train
Simulator 2018 owners, enjoying your collection from the perspective of the
driver, passenger or railfan.
I wonder if you took all the FSX paid addons and put it all together, how much it would cost? I know this TS17-18 DLC thing looks absolutely, mind-blowingly, stupid but really, it's not any different to what Flight Simulator has been doing for decades. Nothing in the ol' rule book that says only Flight Simulator is allowed to do it, either. So, good on them! If there's a market for it, who are we to judge? (No, I'm not being sarcastic. I'm totally serious)
