    Most of the Trainz Plus features will find their way into future versions of Trainz.
    Hi Tony, could you explain which features are likely to remain Gold exclusives, or is this a general catch all to allow room for manoeuvre?

    A very good question, and the honest answer is... it depends

    Predicting the future is fraught with danger so we'll outline our plans when we're confident of the path we choose.

    What I can say for now is that there will be a bunch of features from Trainz Plus making there way into the next major version of Trainz, and there will be some that won't. The best example currently is "Multiplayer Surveyor" (which is really more about "collaborative route and session building and real-time operations" then simply multiplayer). This feature will require a fairly heavy investment in servers and support, and therefore favours a subscription model.

    Updated from 100240 to 100464: patcher said an update was available for "TRS 19 Regional Edition" - I do not have a "Regional Edition", then downloaded "4.0 GiB". Once done, 19 "Available for download" assets appeared (nothing was missing prior to patch), I downloaded them, and finally:

    • <kuid2:506034:621608:1> BN 62Ft. Bulkhead (early era) and <kuid:506034:405569> RPPX 60Ft.9In. scrap gondola: "Unknown location";
    • <kuid2:506034:850413:1> Logs spruce 95 ton (100% wetness): Not Installed, Payware (not active)".

    Nothing faulty/missing before update. I am no more prompted to download DLCs at game startup as I was before. Back to 100240.

    I didn't modify anything (e.g. folder locations).

    I have no idea what Trainz Plus is.

    But as a Gold whatsit, thanks very much.

    Mike.

    HPL - by chance are you using the same local data folder for different versions of Trainz? If so, that's a bad idea. Alternatively, perhaps you've imported TANE folders to TRS19 rather than downloaded the TRS19 versions?

    We know something is different in your installs and so we just need to figure out what that is so that we can address the issue for you and other in the same situation.

    Firstly, there is a content fix package sc545 that you should have been prompted to install (if not, click File > Download purchased items then Start Trainz).

    There are 0 missing or faulty items in a fresh install with fresh download, and 0 or missing items in the tests we've done in patching from the first release and the recent "regional update" release. Given that there has been a range of content updates in various betas, it is possible (in fact likely, given you are seeing problems) that you've ended up with a content set that isn't part of our test plan.

    Fyi re "Regional Edition" - this is the internal name for the 100240 update for TRS19 so at the point you had 100240 installed you did have the regional edition installed (plus the full content set rather than just one regional content set).

    Thanks for the answer Tony.

    I can see the logic, but I suspect that some will be dismayed to know that they will require a subscription to access all of Trainz's features. I feel a certain unease myself.

    Never have been prompted to download "sc545" (even after "Download puchased items").

    HPL - it seems you're the unlucky one for both TANE and TRS19. Perhaps it's just a coincidence or perhaps there is something in your update/backup/install process that creates the necessary conditions for the content to end up in this state.

    sc545 is now titled TRS19 Content Fix (I didn't know it now had a name). You can check if it (sc545) is installed in your /packages folder. Also check you haven't turned off DLC download prompts in your settings.

    I would suggest that you create a new local data folder to see if that solves the problem, or reinstalling. Please let us know how you get on.

    As somebody who has a lot of third party content installed, is it safe to use Trainz Plus?
