Hello Rail Enthusiasts!
We’re excited to bring you the latest update for Rail Route – Update 19! This update introduces new features and improvements to enhance your railway management experience. Don’t forget to join our Discord community for engaging discussions, insights, and connections with fellow rail fans and our dev team!
Now, let’s explore the new features!
The Perpetual Circuit is a game-changer for continuous route allocation. Built onto an auto signal, it ensures the same path is allocated every game tick. Say goodbye to manual adjustments for long one-way block segments!
In Endless mode, find the Perpetual Circuit under a new System Upgrade, complete with a dedicated tutorial. In Timetable and Rush Hour modes, this circuit is readily available for seamless gameplay.
We’ve revamped the scoring for Endless maps, now measuring your success by the highest sum of experience points (Green + Red) earned during a cycle. This change offers a clearer measure of your rail network’s efficiency. Climb the leaderboards, coming soon!
Victory screens in Timetable and Rush Hour modes have received a UI and immersion makeover. Endless mode will follow, ensuring your accomplishments are celebrated in style.
Simplified Station Construction streamlines building. Build stations and platforms from the menu, connect platforms to stations, and configure platform sinks effortlessly.
The bottom bar designs now match the train bottom bar for intuitive navigation.
Follow Jozic’s narrative story with the new Message Log, ensuring you catch every detail during your adventures on the Prague map.
Curious about Rail Route but not quite ready to commit? We’ve got you covered!
The demo is back! Dive into rail network management and get a taste of the addictive gameplay that awaits.
We can also inform that the price has just been lowered in Poland and China, to adapt to local purchase power.
We hope you’re as excited about these updates as we are! Join our Discord community to share your experiences with Update 19 and stay tuned for more behind-the-scenes.
Until next time, keep those trains on track and your railways running smoothly!
