I find it interesting that no one has responded to this thread. I have updated my TRS22 and it appears to be in very good shape. Maybe since Surveyor 2.0 will never appear in TRS22, no one has any interest in testing it if they have access to Trainz Plus. Oh well, I will report any bugs I stumble on.
This update disabled the water paint feature completely? I cant paint water, only delete water on old routes. Also the game freezes on too many trains running.. I had this in a previous versions in about 2 hours of running sessions, but now it happens in like 30 mins into the session. The drivers are still at wrong end in reversing trains.
I have both Trainz retail and Trainz Plus installed, I have noticed alot of lag in surveyor in trainz 22 retail beta since the update. I also wasn't prompt for Trainz Performance Configuration. I was expecting surveyor 2.0 to be available in trainz 22 retail, Even though it's not my favorite interface, I have been going back and forth between retail and plus, learning the new interface. I can't find bulk asset update in surveyor 2.0. The new interface when clicking on trains and rolling stock is wonderful, with the exception of delay when opening the windows. I checked the build number, And i am in fact on 122396. I hope the RC full builds will become available. From scratch it takes about 5 updates to get to RC, And the first beta update is 9.7 GB. The current Patch installed with no problems, Accept what i have listed above. I have considered buying the steam version for testing, Now that i have 8tb of nvme storage.
The bulk asset update replace doesn't work with selected area, it replaces everything on the baseboard instead of just the selection.
I don't know the name of the widget so I included a picture.


As you can see, I completed the session with a score of 750 and 5 stars as seen in the upper right corner but the widget that opens in the middle of the screen only shows 749 and 4 stars. This happens in any session that uses this widget to show the score at the end.
The widget displayed in the picture that shows the score is called 'Rank session complete'.
The score requires the other rule which is called 'Rank session begin' - this shows the session score the upper left corner of the screen.

Thank you, I believe this is my favorite route of all your creations. It is just so enjoyable to operate on. I bought Midwestern Rail but I'm waiting for Charter to stop throttling my connection before I attempt the download. It appears the Rank session complete doesn't like something in TRS22. I see the same problem with the tutorial sessions.
You're welcome, and glad to hear you are enjoying the Midwestern Branch route.
Ah yes... Charter / Spectrum... they're fun providers to deal with. I had their internet just go out on me whenever it wanted to so I had to reboot the modem and router to get reconnected (sometimes rebooting it 12 times in a row). I was glad to get rid of them and go with Xfinity where I never had troubles with them from the paste 3 years.
Hope you are able to eventually download the route.

Looks like the new HD Update has now gone live for non-beta users. I just started Trainz Plus (non-beta version) and it launched the Online Patch to (I didn't note the build number) a 9.7 GB download. 22 minutes left to go. I will report back when it is completed and loads.

It is build 122411 (for PC Trainz+). ~30 minutes total download/install/DBR on a 50MB/sec connection. So far everything running smoothly. no delay for caching on startup.
