Key Features


MULTIPLE LEVELS OF INTERACTION Choose your level of interaction.

ALL NEW LOCALISED CONTENT TRS2006 contains a mixture of historic, real world and imaginary routes as well as trains unique to various countries, appealing to a much wider audience than in previous Trainz products.

ROUTES WITH PURPOSE Deeper and more complex routes now take full advantage of the many new features. These new elements have been incorporated into the many passenger and freight operations increasing the user?s immersion.

Major additions to the physics engine include wheelslip and coupler breakage. Combined with several other modifications, these add to the realism and provide a more challenging experience for the virtual driver. Physics can be customized to affect all locos or only user defined classes of loco. Physics can even be set to change based upon triggers placed in a map.

iTRAINZ (IN-GAME MESSAGING) iTrainz allows for messaging between players while playing routes with the iTrainz Chat Rule enabled. Simply add users to your Friends list and you?ll be informed when they are online. Once the ONLINE CHAT Rule has been added to a session, a player can open the Contact List window and add as many contacts as they wish.

iPORTAL (PLAYER TO PLAYER GAMEPLAY) An iPortal is a variation on the existing portal, except instead of sending a train within a single map, the iPortal allows players to send trains from one iPortal enabled map to another player?s map, even if the receiving player is offline! An iPortal is placed into a map in surveyor and it?s settings entered through a dialog box.

CONTENT MANAGER PLUS Content Manager Plus combines the abilities of several tools into one, making it easier for users to access and organize their content. Users now have the ability to browse Auran's extensive download station of over 45,000 assets without needing to be online.

CONTENT CREATOR PLUS A new tool designed to help content creators create error-free content is included with TRS2006. Using the tool, the creator is able to generate the necessary config files so that their content is able to be uploaded to the Download Station for other people to access and play with.

PAINTSHED Paintshed, the easy-to-use train re-skinning tool, has been incorporated into CMP. A user can now clone one of the Paintshed Templates, make their own creations and it will be instantly added to the game for them to use. Paintshed templates include both Loco and Wagons with multiple paint patterns for each. Text and Logos can be placed anywhere

SURVEYOR SEARCH FILTER Powerful new search abilities in Surveyor expand the ways in which a user is able to locate content.

PASSENGER OBSERVATION The in-game view camera can now be placed within passenger cars, giving the user the experience of riding along a train as a passenger.

USER INTERFACE ENHANCEMENTS Several areas of the games user interface were improved upon to add functionality and to increase the amount of information being displayed.

BACKDROPS ASSETS Backdrops are an asset that can be placed on a map they are always rendered regardless of the view distance settings. This enables builders to set up landscaped horizons such as mountains and skyscrapers quicker and with less impact to the frame-rate.

CAB CONTROL HUD Replicating elements from the popular RailDriver controller, the Cab Control HUD is an on-screen interface which allows users to control a train via the use of levers rather than the keyboard.

TUTORIALS A tutorial system designed towards helping new users understand how to play the game has been incorporated. A player can learn to drive diesel and steam trains, assign commodities to wagons, transfer drivers between trains, issue orders to drivers, couple and decouple wagons and much more.

IMPROVED SESSION MAKING SUPPORT Several new rules were added for session makers to use including many rules designed to allow session makers to make more intuitive sessions with tighter control over player interactions. Some of the more useful rules included are:

ANIMATED TURNOUT SUPPORT TRS2006 provides support for animated turnouts, giving track work a more realistic appearance. Examples are included in the game.

TrackIR SUPPORT TRS2006 supports NaturalPoint?s third party device: TrackIR Pro3. Move your head and your view responds independently of the mouse.

EXPANDED SCHEDULE FUNCTIONALITY Trains can be given schedules with set tasks. These tasks include abilities such as coupling and de-coupling, with the result being that trains now have the ability to perform even more realistic operations.
