    Loads of respect for your views, but I guess Tony might appreciate you spelling his name correctly at least once...

    OK: Candidates for the One Feature that would make the NEXT (New Era eXtended Trainz) version of Trainz of great interest to the majority of Trainz users would be:
    1. Comprehensive dispatch and scheduling systems
    2. Improved animations of passengers and goods when loading or unloading
    3. A DirectX 11 or 12 version capable of SLI or Crossfire
    4. New sky dome with realistic starscape at night and the sun position based on the Lat/Long set for user's current route

    Spelling was never my strong point. As I said I left school with no qualifications whatsoever. However I am sure Tony will understand, if not I apologise

    I know what that's like (the spelling side that is - I haven't had experience on the other side). I've got a friend with dyspraxia that has problems with spelling (as long as the first and last letters are in the right place though I can normally understand it).

    Thanks for acknowledging. No criticism intended, but repeatedly misspelling a name could be interpreted as a degree of disrespect, which I'm sure wasn't intended.

    All calm.

    That's one reason why I'm trying to help simplify things if I can through my tutorials and guides (although my basics guide is now somewhat out of date due to all the changes).

    Just out of interest, has anyone looked at N3V's videos on Youtube lately?

    OK, my guess is (specially for Bill & Co) the next big thing will be TS 2004 adapted for Android. In game purchases for locomotive and rolling stock will be available along with scenery and suchlike items (for a modest sum).

    Players will get points for crashes, with a bonus for each passenger killed and a 'highest death rate' table will be the main feature on Trainz Portal (where further purchases may be made).

    and so, back to reality .

    Thanks rumour3. I always use Dragon Naturally Speaking for longer posts or documents and it has never learned Tony's surname spelling. Strange as it always has picked up everything else very quickly including names. Cannot figure out why that is . Perhaps my Dragon does not like him (LOL).

    And posts like that are why Trainz is not gaining new user as it should be. Demonstration of some on this forum closing their combined minds to a changing outside gaming and platform world.

    If Trainz ever goes down the dumbed-down, lousy-graphics, unmoddable, freemium route that is the mobile gaming market, I'll stick with my "geeky" old versions of Trainz.

    And I've spent less on new hardware in the last four years than many (if not the vast majority) of smartphone owners have during the same period of time.
