6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Nostalgic Software has announced the release of SteamTRAIN 4.4. The latest incarnation of the 1800's era steam train simulation adds night lighting on the track-map, improves locomotive smoke, and smooths details with anti-aliasing.
More about SteamTRAIN:
Your train will travel between stations, up and down grades, negotiate curves, switch tracks, and couple/uncouple cars. Simple keyboard/mouse controls include the throttle, boiler pressure, traction sand, air brakes, manual couplers, and track switches. A mixed-weather option includes clear skies, rain, or snow plus day/night -- all in one run. Spectacular crashes possible with full recovery. The Setup Mode allows learning, creative challenges and freelance experiments.Learn more at the link below.
MailTrain Mode offers speed/schedule challenges. Starting from the east or west terminal, your job is to pickup and deliver mail and newspapers to all stations along the route. Your schedule is based on pre-chosen degrees of difficulty: number of cars, weather, steepness of slopes, speed of other trains, consumables, etc. Phantom Express trains appear and vanish several times during a run. High scores are maintained for local competition.
Dispatcher Mode offers hours of real train operation challenges. You select locomotive(s) from the roundhouse at one terminal; assemble the marked cars into a passenger, freight or mixed train; and travel to the opposite terminal picking up and dropping off cars along the way to attain a score. Several options add difficulty such as steep grades, mixed weather, plus number and types of cars. An opposing Robo train launches from the opposite terminal. High scores and settings can be saved.
