Hello fellow Rail Route enthusiasts!
We’re excited to bring you additional improvements of Rail Route Update 18, with changes to enhance your railway management experience.
The stabling sensor now offers a new configuration option, allowing you to define rules based on the position of the train’s locomotive. This enhancement provides greater flexibility in managing your railway network, especially during train stabling and intermissions.
Our shunting sensor just got smarter! We’ve introduced a new configuration option in the station list that allows you to set precise rules for when shunting commands should be triggered. You can now specify whether a station should match the train’s next stop or any remaining station in the train’s timetable. This gives you even more control over train operations and automation.
We’ve finally added a dedicated ‘Tutorials’ section to the Maps page in the Main Menu. These tutorials are designed to help you master new features and improve your rail management skills. Go learn something new!
We’ve given the train bottom bar a makeover for improved usability. The control buttons are now larger and spaced out, making it easier to manage your trains during gameplay. Say goodbye to accidental taps and hello to smoother operations!
Selected train labels have been enhanced to adapt to your zoom level. Now, when you click on a train, its label will increase in size, ensuring you can easily read important information about the train’s status and schedule.
