    Too much choice is always a risk but so is having only a single choice. The fact that they (N3V) are no longer rushing out SPs to meet deadlines is, to me at least, a good sign.

    Trainz Plus and TRS19 Platinum differ from TRS19 Classic (for want of a better label) only in the tools they offer (and their location in the UI). The routes and sessions they create are fully compatible, apart from the old problem of users including DLC in their DLS uploaded routes and sessions. I would hope/expect that they have learned from the Trainz Classic releases.

    My opinions.

    I had the same. I ran a DBR and that issue went away.

    Where should this be installed so I don't have two copies of TS19 on the machine?

    Thanks John

    Having sat out the Silver / Gold experience, (very little interest in DLC) I've been looking forward to the new unified Surveyor/Driver interface. At first glace, I'm liking it, liking it a lot. Most of my Trainz activity is building sample maps, making dedicated objects and then testing in my maps. Being able to jump quickly from Surveyor to Driver and back is worth the price of admission. For some reason, trackside objects just don't look the same in Surveyor as they do in Driver. Especially the alignments.

    The download and installation of TRS19 Platinum went without a hitch.
    The import of my test maps also went without any issues.

    I just looked again at the pricing and frankly for an upgrade it is disgraceful. Existing owners of TRS19 Classic should not be expected to pay more than around £20 (US$25) for what amounts to three new routes, one of which is a model railway and rolling stock content which has probably been taken from the DLS. (Plus a dubious interface change). Even with my $10 voucher that still works out at nearly £50. I could buy several items for ETS2 or the DTG sims in the Steam sale for that and still have change.

    I'll be here when N3V decide to implement a more realistic pricing structure.

    Two opposing opinions on the same product - yes, this certainly is a Trainz forum

    Both opinions are valid according to the needs, means, expectations and experiences of the posters. For one, the new Unified Driver Surveyor interface is the main reason for moving to Platinum. For the other the cost-benefit of the upgrade is the main reason for not moving to Platinum.

    But it does seem that many users have made the jump to Platinum.

    Me - I am currently sitting on the fence. I am mostly a route builder so the new interface interests me but I do have some reservations about it. I always thought that such a feature would be very useful but would also be impossible to implement satisfactorily - but I am willing to be proven wrong. So I will be following this forum with interest.

    Been gone quite a while..... I have given up on TRS2006. Looking at purchase of new TRS2019 . Can't decide Platinum at $69 or regular at $49. In the past I spent more time at forming terrain, laid track, and set buildings........ Any comments?

    My comment is that the choice is a highly personal one. What is right for one isn't right for someone else. But study and understand so that you know what you are getting. I would start by looking at this comparison chart making sure you understood every feature and item. important info on top AND the bottom comparison chart. Note that there are now Gold, Silver, and Plus programs and there is also the new Platinum edition. If you do layouts and are Surveyor a lot consider getting something with UDS (Unified Driver Surveyor) but note that there are some that are unhappy with the current interface. UDS basically allows you to jump in to Surveyor from Driver and vice versa.

    Hi 44Smith
    You will need to enter your username and password (MyTrainz account details) into the Internet tab of the Trainz Settings. This can be done by following these steps:

    1) Double click on the Trainz icon on your desktop to open the 'launcher' screen
    2) Click on Trainz Settings
    3) Click on the internet tab
    4) Enter your MyTrainz account's username and password into the boxes provided, then press enter. Please keep in mind that your username and password are case sensitive.
    5) Now close the settings and then try starting Trainz again.

    Thanks.............. I knew it had to be something simple and I was over-thinking the whole process. Been away a long time and might take me a bit to get used to things. Thanks again
