A Note Regarding Upcoming Products
June 23, 2016

Our goal, moving forward, is to begin transitioning to the Open Rails platform, exclusively.  For over 10 years, we have supported the MS Train Simulator platform, and will continue to do so for the next number of months.  From a vendor standpoint, MS Train Simulator was an easy platform on which to provide expansion packs, since, by default, it had a registry entry for installation paths.  Open Rails has much more flexibility in that regard, because you can link multiple content folders.  Unfortunately, not all our customers are familiar with this process, so from our standpoint, we have to be able to generate installation routines which will work.  To create content for Open Rails in a dedicated TrainSimulations.net content folder, we would require, at the very least, a route in that folder to run trains.  We do have some routes in development, which are geared more towards Open Rails’ capabilities, and when they are completed, they will be dedicated Open Rails releases.  In the meantime, our train set packages will remain compatible with both Open Rails and MSTS platforms. This is going to be a process, and the transition will take some time.  Thanks.

As it turns out, Twitter has limitations on the size of Tweets.  So, to counter this, we’ve set up a News section which we will link to from Twitter posts.  This way, we aren’t limited on the size of any one message.

Prior to the shift to from SLI to TrainSimulations.net, we informed our customers that we would be focusing primarily on Open Rails content as we moved forward.  While this remains true, we do still have some MS Train Simulator/Open Rails compatible project we would like to finish.  So, over the next little while, you can expect some product releases for both platforms.  Any releases specifically for Open Rails will be labeled accordingly.

Thank you for visiting our new website.  We hope the new style will be more functional for the majority of users.  While it is based on the new responsive website concept, it is not yet optimized for tablets and smartphones.  We are working on that.

Thanks,
TrainSimulations Team
