8 years in the making and now ready for Beta Testing
Posted: 30th October 2008
The world's most flexible rail simulation just became even more powerful.
The Trainz team have been busy making sure the next major release of Trainz will be the best ever. Trainz Simulator 2009 is the culmination of 8 years of ongoing development and brings together a unified set of content and features that will provide a single stable platform that can be built upon for many more years to come.
In addition to the long list of improvements made through previous versions, TS2009 brings a host of new features and enhancements. This work includes updating the Auran Jet engine to support higher resolution graphics and content, adding new features such as more detailed terrain, improved AI and a major useability upgrade of Content Manager. It is the start of a whole new era of better graphics, better performance, more content and even more community based involvement.
We've devoted more time to testing and bug fixing than ever before and a lot of effort has gone into making sure all your existing content is as compatible as possible. We're now getting ready to release a Beta build to our fans to get that all important feedback. With your continued support, the hobby of Trainz will continue to expand as more and more people share their passion for the world of trains.
