· Major improvements to steam physics

    • In Cab Mode, consumption of coal, water and steam is more prototypical during operation.
    • Top speeds have been checked against available prototypical data and corrected for all steam engines.

· New cab interiors for Mallard and Flying Scotsman

  • Based on research carried out at the National Railway Museum in York.
  • Highly representative of Gresley's cab interior characteristics taking into account changes over time.

· Loading & caching optimizations

  • Layout's now load on average 10 to 30% faster.

· AI trains no longer prefer driving left

  • Trains using the 'Drive' command previously always took the left route at junctions where possible. Now they proceed through the junction without changing it if the track ahead is clear. If the track ahead is blocked, a more appropriate track will be chosen.

· Scenery objects animating correctly

  • This includes objects such as windmills, balloons, etc.

· Scenario scripts can be encrypted using the supplied encryption program.

  • This enables the protection of 3rd party script development.

· Individual Driver Orders can be deleted

  • Simply hold control and click on any visible order to remove unwanted instructions.

· Trainz Download Helper improvements (Lots of thanks to the Trainz Community for their many suggestions)

  • Trainz Download Helper now supports saving backup copies of CDP archives to a path that you specify.
  • Trainz Download Helper and the integrated Trainz Exchange supports resume of downloads allowing you to continue installing after an interrupted download.
  • Trainz Download Helper supports Ultimate Trainz Collection.

· Better handling of duplicate KUIDs

  • When custom content is installed that duplicates Auran supplied TRS2004 content, TRS2004 will move the duplicate content to a 'removed content' folder.
  • When multiple copies of the same custom content are installed, TRS2004 will choose a single version of the content and ignore the others.

· Download Station Enhancements

  • KUID2 formatted content can obsolete KUID formatted content.
  • Uploaded Content can be set as invisible on the Download Station but able to be downloaded via the Download Helper application.
