Mechanics

Basic rules and gameplay mechanics did not change. We are still sculpting the land, build railways, and then try them out as a train driver whose job is to collect cargo and passengers, and safely finish our journey. There are many train engines available, from the oldest to the newest ones.

Technical Aspects

The biggest changes were implemented in the technological aspect of Trainz Simulator: A New Era for PC / Windows. The game uses a brand new engine, E2. It allowed the developers at N3V Games to create a game that looks significantly better than Trainz Simulator 12. Train models are more detailed than ever, and we can see many advanced graphical effects like HDR, dynamic lighting, dynamic shadows, and altering weather conditions while playing.

New technology used in the development of Trainz Simulator: A New Era for PC / Windows also allowed to significantly improve the game’s physics. Those players who simply love realism will be more than pleased, but there are some simplificiations for those who want a more relaxing experience.
