Problem with directions

So, I love this game a lot. It’s has good gameplay, graphics, and missions. However, there is a problem. There is always a yellow line on the track when I’m doing missions and the train is just going straight just fine, but then the line/direction suddenly changes, forcing me to go backwards the rest of the way. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a way to avoid this? Help me out, please. Thanks.

More of a game than a simulator

Being an avid train simulator runner, I found this app to be more of a game that an actual simulator. To start, you get a slow almost useless loco with 2 passenger cars. You have to run the missions(route scenarios as we enthusiasts call em) to get enough gold so you can buy more rail cars or locos. Which is lame. Most simulators provide up to 7 or more locos and a variety of rail cars to start. There’s an annoying yellow strip on top of the tracks that I guess guides you in the right direction but really takes away from the somewhat decent reality. The fines on exceeding speed limit and failure to blow horn are lame as well. This app is just another “pay to win”game.

Train Pro Simulator 18

I love playing this game. I can’t get over how real the graphics are. I was wondering if you could tell me where and how do I find the train yard. So that I can get my Engine served? And back to running great again. Thanks Jonathan Dorton

Software Doesn’t Work Correctly

When you first start the game and are going through the training runs it states engine damage can come along if you exceed speed. Sometimes you will be going half of the speed limit and your engine damage meter will go up to the point of breaking. Your train will then not go more the 5MPH and then it wants 4000 coins to fix it and if you don’t have that amount of coins you are unable to continue and have to either buy the coins in game with really money OR uninstall and start from the beginning.

Brilliant!

TRAINZ finally has competition. Once you get into proactive rather than reactive gameplay and understand the relationship between hard braking and brake damage & comfort and also over speeding and engine damage it is a great game model. All I can say is more, more, more. Trains, cargo, cities. The ability to sell your old trains off would be nice even at a lower price. Complete control of consist layout, engines wherever you want them front, mid, end. Ability to zoom out more. Environment change with state, desert, mountain, etc. Along with appropriate weather. And more lighting effects on trains not just engines either and on buildings and at stops, street lights, cars etc. Change paint color so cars match engines at least for passenger? This might be a bit much but an interactive train yard here and there to perform shunting missions and load unload freight? That would be fricken awesome! Well done Mageeks, well done. So when does the ship sim come out? (Wink, wink)

This game is amazing! But...

The game is great. The controls are simple and somewhat realistic. The graphics are good for a phone and it’s fun to play. But there’s an issue and I’m not sure if it’s intended or not. But it’s the fact that I have an issue where the game says I failed to use my horn at a grade crossing even though I did. I even sounded my horn before the game was telling me I should and I still get the fine. And it’s constant too. I can’t sound my horn to stop it and it gets really annoying really fast. If you could please fix that, it would be greatly appreciated. Also, it would be cool if you added more cars like auto racks or flatbeds specifically made for trailers. It would also be cool if you added SD type locomotives and be able to switch the orientation around so there could be locomotives that are facing backwards. Heck, you could have it so you could have an end of train locomotive or be able to edit the color of it as well. I could go on and on for suggestions for this game. But the fine thing, I’d love for it to be fixed. Either it’s a bug or I missed something in the mini tutorial. If you do take my suggestions, I thank you a lot.

Amazing Train Simulator

One of the best train simulator games out there so far. This game has very detailed/realistic train operations, graphics, sounds, and missions. But there are a few flaws and missing details though. Please add &/or fix: -crossing signals/gates at grade crossings -locomotive bell -game reset option (for when we get stuck &/or fail a mission) -install track signals that operate/change colors for better realism. (track signals appear to be just for looks) -correct and relocate the city skylines to the correct city (example: sadly I noticed the Chicago Skyline was in Miami and not in Chicago) -have the train derail when operated poorly I understand this game is new yet, so I’m not too disappointed. I rated this game 4 stars but will be happy to rate 5 stars when improved upgrades are released and the bugs are fixed in the up coming updates. Thank you very much for listening and I’ll be looking forward to updates soon :-)

AWESOME GAME, but..

This is an amazing game for a phone, or iPad, probably the best but there's some things that would make it even better, for example: lights, i really want lights for the passenger cars for nighttime and for the cab. Sound, also it would be cool if you added realistic sound for what the trains actually sound like with the horn, engine sound and so on.. finally, maybe make it so you can activate a bell for the train, that would be cool. Although I have a lot of suggestions I still think this is a great game. If you can please add those things, it would be awesome. Thank You.

Really Good

This is a huge step forward for IOS train simulators. Graphics are really great. Game concept is really good and well thought out. Most previous train sims for IOS have been garbage. You may have to spend some additional money to do the things you want, particularly at the beginning, but that is a common format for a lot of other good sim games; World of Tanks, etc. After 1st run, I had it figured out and have very few penalty points. BTW...to another commenter; all end cities have balloon tracks to turn your train around, so you don’t have to run backward. Great job on this!

Sound Track Notice

I wanted to give no stars because the sound “tracks” are from an app called GarageBand. I hope you like the game😀

Please update with turn around

I hate driving the train backward. PLEASE ADD SOME TURN ROUNDS. Besides that I love the game.

Glitchy

Game is fun. However one major problem exists at the railroad crossings. If you have a very long train, it starts fining you for not honking at railroad crossings at the end of the train. Even if you hold the horn through the entire length of your train passing through. Please fix, I'm losing a lot of money to nonsense penalties.

Needs a better tutorial

Losing coins cause of fines and having crazy repairs because of not completely understanding game.... bad buy not worth the $5

DONT GET ITTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok so I take everything back I find this game not realistic at all and not worth 5 dollars so no one buy this and also what are you supposed to spend your In-App purchases on because you can’t buy trains or cars because their is a required “level” even though there is nothing that tells you what level your on and all the trains have the exact same horn and no bell wow ya this is sooo realistic Plus you have to pay 4,000$ for gas woow nice

Please add a Bell

Pleeeease

Grade Crossing Fines

The game works extremely well. My only concern is that when pulling a very long train, I get fined for not using my horn at the crossings. Other than that, the game is amazing.

It’s good

I like the details and physics. But the hills are so steep I got stalled in the middle of nowhere. Other than that it’s okay wish the hills weren’t so steep. Wish the trains had bells on them like real trains do.

Can't play the game

Can't play the game and trying to figure out how to get a refund. Game quits on me after 2 min of playing it and kicks me out. All the functions also are on a delay

Update idea

I'm loving the game but I'm I don't like having to go backwards in the game, maybe like, uncouple the train, go on the turn table, and turn around and back couple back to your train. That's what think the update should be. Please fix this. Awesome game👍

More locations

This game is awesome. I like how you can change everything and make multiple stops for different missions. Only thing I wish that it had was more locations. It gets a little boring when you go to the same locations. Maybe try and expand it to the west coast instead of just having the Midwest and east coast. That’s would be my only negative about this game.

Unable to make repairs

I bought the game and after an hour of use, I had to make emergency repairs and not enough coins. There should be a way to play without all the in-app purchases. I could see paying extra for enhancements, but not for normal play. I wish there was either a way to start over or get a refund. I kind of feel ripped off. I’m stuck with a game I can’t play.

So so

It’s a bit hard to play and wouldn’t recommend for a first timer. Once you run out of fuel you have to pay for more. Are you serious?

Love it

Best iOS train simulator app ever. Amazing graphics and fun to play. My wife got mad at me because I wouldn’t put the game down. :) I love it.

Pls add

I really love the game and 1 thing i would like to mention is add a bell to the locamotives thanks!!

I love game

Good morning /afternoon to the developers of this lovely game!!! I love it very much I have zero problems with the game very fun! Only things I would love out of this game if it had the following 1. Inside train car camera mode as a passenger view! More zoom in/out capacity! Different camera angle in the cab of the locomotive! 2. Interior lights inside the cab to see control panel! Bell indicator as approaching train station or departure or at railroad crossing! 3. The option to manually connect and disconnect train cars on site to be able to move locomotive alone onto turntable or to move train elsewhere! With out the hassle to go to the menu to remove cars or trains off the track to choose a different setting of trains and cars! Maybe turntable house to park your train in 4. The opportunity option to place locomotive in front of train consent and to place one on the rear of the train or in the middle!!!! 5. Realistically in real life trains can be miss-matched two different models can be on tracks but in the game is only set to have same model and makes in one consent Please fix that option to place different locomotives how we want!! 6. Have more locomotive train cars for different passengers! Like a dome car first class car luggage car 7. the option to choose more then the list we have for locomotive train selection Steam locomotive or any other type of steam locomotives and electric trains 8. Have more drivable location for trains to travel or even have freight trains travel across the country and not one side of the map and missions with longer train cars option 9. Maybe have moving Visual moving objects such as Animal deer or flying animals birds etc animal life Maybe also for realistically environment Have winter season fall spring summer all season And more realistically time scales not second by second Change the time scales to real day time as we play!!! In the game when we play we see day time maybe 5-6 minute in real time and then already dark !!! Please fix time scales though Thanks

Very great game but

THIS IS A VERY GREAT GAME I LOVE THE GRAPHICS AND ALL THE CONTROLS MOVING but add a bell to the trains, put different horns in each locomotive, and have the trains change direction instead of going in reverse

Love it!

I play many train sim games and I gotta say it's extremely well built for a phone game. I love the fact that you make money and can build huge trains, and even MU some together. Being a train conductor in real life and seeing how much detail went into this game is incredible. I would like to be able to sell off railcars and engines to help towards upgrading to a new and better engines and cars. Maybe some steam engines and old style freight and passenger cars. Maybe even give each engine it's own motor and horn sound. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK GUYS AND GALS!!

Save your money

My train is so far in debt and there is no way to start over.

Resell

You can’t sell any of the cargo or passenger cars! It’s frustrating because you are stuck with them.

Tutorial

Good game but once you go through tutorial there's no way to go back to it if you don't remember something.

A steam train?

like I love trains and this awesome game and the graphics but maybe add a steam train so it would be a train driveline game for real and it would be cool if you can do this for me it would be awesome .

It’s good

I love this game but one thing the map of the USA in the game is wrong the cities in the states are in the wrong place a little disappointed but I hope they will fix it

Do NOT buy!!!

You pay $5 and when you run out of fuel, they want you to make an in-game purchase to buy gems so,that you can buy fuel. It was kinda cool to start out with but turned into nothing but a greedy money grabber.
