    Thanks for the answers
    During the beta test I transferred a route I originally built in TS06. The route came in ok despite a few missing dependencies but it had the same problem in TANE.

    The lighting model seems quite different in TRS19 and you might need to reset the environment settings otherwise it might look a bit bright or a bit dark.

    Many of the old textures and trees don't look that good in TRS19 so you will want to update those. A lot of existing railway stock (non PBR) look very nice in TRS19.

    I'll second that.
    I imported Train 2006 route (or two) there were a few missing assets, but the route worked.

    TS19's lighting is significantly brighter but the edits for that are easy.
    Worst things imported are the old "cut out" trees & bushes, but they look poor in TANE.

    I have a niggle about FCT's. Whenever there was a sale, I did my duty and bought an annual FCT. I now have four tickets unused and one part used. It seems that all these are write-offs. The niggle is that having given N3V my money when they asked for it, there is no recognition of this in the release details.

    I used to joke about not taking out more library books that I could read in a week on account of my age. I should have listened to me. maybe I'll live to 94, who knows.

    I'll do my duty again and subscribe to the new program purely for interest to see what Trainz has become when compared with the original bsfore Christmas 2001. It is unlikely I'll create content for it, it is becoming too complex for this old brain.

    Without trawling though a host of hysterical posts, I am certain that Tony stated somewhere that existing FCTs, activated or not, will still be good or will be made good if you purchase a Gold/Silver membership.

    Unfortunately all my tickets were bought too long ago to allow the refund conditions to apply. I don't even know when they were purchased. That's life!

    Never mind the niggle, you have an annual Gold subscription in the pipe line, courtesy of PayPal. At least I did it in time to get the discount.

    Perhaps I may desert the content creation lark and start playing trainz.

    Traditional Store purchases:

    * FCT = $34.99/yr
    * One DLC - Trainz Route: Coal Country = $39.99
    Total = $145

    Gold Class Membership = $149
    * TRS19 included
    * FCT included
    * 75 DLC items included(worth hundreds of dollars)
    * Preview Pass included(to enjoy all new DLC items for 14 days per-release)
    * Trainz Plus included (access to new Trainz features before anyone else)
    * 25% discount code (save 25% off items even when they are already on sale)
    which is of course not true. When you cancel your sub you are left with nothing.

    From my reading, if you cancel your Gold membership then you will still have the program, access to the DLS and any DLC content you have downloaded. You may have to purchase any continuing FCT access, like any one else, unless you have any non-activated FCT vouchers which you can then simply activate.

    Here is the "fine print".
    All Silver Class Benefits
    25% Store Discount
    TRS2019 Early Access
    Early Access to New Trainz Features
    Preview Pass for New DLC Items.
    Active membership required;
    Billing will continue each month until cancelled;
    Upgrade, downgrade or cancel at any time;
    After cancellation, access ends on your anniversary date;
    Discounts may exclude products within 30 days of launch.

    The important bits regarding ongoing access are "Active membership required" and "After cancellation, access ends on your anniversary date; "

    For clarity here, you can patch your beta build. You will have beta access for "some time" when some = "until you no longer have access". This will occur immediately if you replace you username for example.

    Ultimately, the access to TRS19 will not be for long unless you choose either the Store purchase option or the Gold Class access option.

    Unfortunately we do not control the Internet. The quickest download I have heard of is 7 minutes. I suggest trying the alternate server for the offline version or trying the online version.

    Thanks, Pware! I was looking for a statement of this very thing. Now if I can get some official confirmation of these facts from the higher ups, I can make my purchase decision...
