The Bad

1. Surveyer freezes up when trying to save or during loading of content in window view is completely random. Need Help here

2.The amount of availble content sucks.... most of the stuff on the DLS looks like crap in 2010 but looks fine in 2004 or they simply do not work properly. The stock units for 2010 are not accurate. If I want wide body trains to run I'll play with athearn Blue Box The rolling stock trucks on most cars look like crap as well.

3.Who ever did the track work for some of the routes that came with the game look like total garbage. Mainline 14 radius curves simply do not exist for class 3 Lines. Even CSXT Track work looks better then this crayola crap.

The Good.

1.The weather effects was nicely improved. I like it, except the halmark snow!!

2.The grid option for textures was a very nice improvment.

3. Most track included looks more realistic and was definitly needed and is very smooth to load.

4. Speed tree was a good idea. but why so few done and no grass to go along with it that I could find?


I just need help with surveyer freezing the rest I'll fix on My own. I give the game only a 6 because clearly more content and some major bugs was clearly not fixed and there major ones.

I had the same problem with Surveyor freezing on save. It seemed to save okay, but required me to end the program using Task Manager.

I reported it to the helpdesk and they got back saying it is a known bug. There is a work around - when you save in surveyor, deselect the option to save the session too. This should solve the hang on save problem. Apparently you can save the session separately anyway and that is not a problem either.

I'm assuming there'll be a patch coming a t some point to resolve this issue.
