  • Hello players,

    From here you can find the changelog for update 4.13.0. What do you think? Let's talk about the Update 4.13.0

    Redesigned association window

    • The association window is now also available as a centered window.
    • It will now be possible to apply for a new association without leaving the current one first. If accepted, the old association will automatically be left (restarting game worlds only).
    • If accepted by one association, other open applications will be deleted.
    • All association features combined will now be available in one window.
    • As Chairperson, it’ll be possible to spot potential members more easily.
    • It will also be possible to automatically accept new applicants, as long as there is still room (restarting game worlds only).
    • Please find a detailed guide here: Association Feature Guide

    Performance improvements

    Both the train and the waggon list have been optimised and will now work more fluently while putting a considerably smaller load on your internal memory. The waggon list will also appear with a new interface. You can take a look at the difference in performance in the following videos.

    Balancing changes

    • The prestige received for halving waiting times will be reduced (restarting game worlds only).
    • The prestige received for investments in industries will be reduced (restarting game worlds only).
    • Steam over Europe: Region scores for landmarks will be reduced from 2,000 to 1,500 points (restarting game worlds only).
    • Collecting trainspotters will be less frustrating!
      • Trainspotters will only appear every 60 minutes instead of 30.
      • The trainspotter rewards will be increased accordingly.
      • Petr and friends will be less shy! Rare trainspotters will appear more frequently.
      • ‘Bad Luck Protection’: A trainspotter still missing in your collection will appear no later than after 20 already collected trainspotters.
