LOCORailroad - Model Railway Simulator

Post by loco » Wed Apr 03, 2019 4:20 pm

Hi

We've just started work on new model railway simulator. No first-person view, no elements of railway tycoon - just little trains running on little tracks. Present version allows basic operations incl. driving & point switching.

Graphics look good, but you're going to have lots of flat spots on those non-rotating wheels...

Work on the game is progressing with Rocket's speed [1829], slow & steady.  For a "simple" concept it's surprisingly complicated.

Next major update will include ability to lay track [semi-automated], choice of buildings & wagons.

For the time being it is released as Early Access on Steam.

It might take be a while [depending on external factors] before it reaches beta version but it will get there.
