    Dear players,


    A new round of COM-201 Big Ben (Steam over Europe) will start on Monday, October 24th, at 12PM UTC.


    Keep in mind that due to unexpected events the planning can change and a delay is possible.



    Happy hauling everyone!

    The version was installed only on COM-3 currently.
    All the other COM servers will get the update on October 27th, as stated in this announcement.


    Bug fixes:

    RN-7822 Medals: In good company: members are now counted correctly again
    RN-3005 Medals: Haulier: passengers and bonus engine transports are now counted correctly for this medal
    RN-1532 Medals: Allrounder: fixed an error that caused the medal to sometimes not trigger correctly
    RN-2095 Medals: X3: fixed an error that caused the medal to sometimes not trigger correctly (NB: income exceeding the account limit is wasted and may reset the medal counter)
    RN-9587 Workers: fixed an error that led to a -x% bonus of workers from different eras to not work
    RN-7854 Workers: fixed an error that prevented players from using a worker slot they opened during an auction in the said auction
    RN-9522: fixed an error that deactivated an active boost if a mechanic was hired
    RN-9460 Sitters: fixed an error that showed halve waiting time vouchers for the sitter instead of the person they sit for

    Additionally, both the schedules as well as the chat server have been recoded from scratch to fix a range of old errors.
    This includes the idle trains in industries or the ever-persisting green envelopes.



    Feature changes:
    Passenger schedule: Filling up automatically the passengers for another stop (the feature works now as on the Europe scenario). (later restored to the old behaviour).


    The distribution of competitions has been revised in order to have fewer simultaneous competitions in neighbouring cities. The generation of competitions has also been adjusted so that competitions are now spread over the whole six-hour time frame and are no longer all generated in the first three hours, for example.




    For new rounds:
    - Profits from passenger transports have been reduced. The profits have been decreased especially for longer routes.
    - The Gold price for instantly completing tracks is now dynamic and depends on the remaining construction time.
    - Rewards for bonus videos have been increased
    - Cash prizes have been increased for all eras
    - Increased the amount of research points and waggon vouchers in later eras

    Dear players,


    on Wednesday, October 19th, we will update our USA servers.


    They will be offline between 08:15 - 09:15 am UTC.


    Please take into consideration that the maintenance could take longer, in case of unexpected situations.


    Here is the list of the USA servers:


    DE-101
    COM-101
    FR-101
    M1.101
    RU-101
    RU-103
    IT-101
    PL-101
    CZ-101
    US-101
    US-102



    The distribution of competitions has been revised, in order to have fewer competitions simultaneously in cities within close proximity of each other.
    The generation of competitions has also been adjusted, meaning competitions are now spread out across the 6-hour time frame and are no longer all generated in the first three hours, for example.

    Dear players,

    COM is the first domain in the rollout plan for the next Classic update - 3.3.6.


    COM3 is scheduled for 20th of October. All other COM servers are scheduled for 27th of October.
    (In case there will be changes, we will let you know!)


    Our game applications - both Android and iOS - will be updated in the near future!

    For some domains there will be a short transition period between the limitation of the old app, due to the next classic update, and the release of the new one. You will have access to the old app, but functions will be limited. This limitation will last for 2 weeks at the minimum.

    The new application system will have:
    - a higher quality
    - more stability
    - better performance (e.g. optional low quality map mode)
    - login option via Google+

    And the most important: Europe + classic game versions in one app - Yaay! :)


    We’re sorry for the inconveniences during the transition and we hope the new applications will improve your gameplay!



    Your Rail Nation Team

    Dear players,


    We have promised to provide new incentives for different playing styles, especially for teamwork.


    We have good news for you! Something will be introduced in Rail Nation soon!






    Did we make you curious?


    We will be waiting for your posts in the discussion thread!

    Europe 1.5 Changelog



    New features:

    Mini map / radar
    The mini map and the radar are a new feature we provide that will make navigating the map and setting up new schedules much easier.

    Other improvements:
    - The hex map (the 'game board' on which the trains travel) has been overhauled from a technical standpoint, enabling graphic cards to work with textures more effectively. Each frame requires less time to draw the hex map, leading to improved FPS rates while also allowing you to zoom out without losing any details
    - A range of other small improvements to the user interface which, for example, allow players to switch between train stations more quickly
    - When zooming out from the map industries are now displayed as icons
    - The distribution of competitions has been revised in order to have fewer competitions simultaneously in cities within close proximity of each other. The generation of competitions has also been adjusted, meaning competitions are now spread out across the 6-hour time frame and are no longer all generated in the first three hours, for example.

    Bug fixes:
    RN-8305 - Fixed an error that reset prepared (but not entered) bids for worker auctions
    RN-6986 - Fixed an error that caused old messages not to load if the association forum was filled with lots of content
    RN-9091 - Fixed an error that made it possible to build more than two buildings at a time with the Plus Account
    RN-8243 - Fixed an error that resulted in too much prestige being paid out for passenger transports
    RN-8666 - Fixed an error with the schedule assistant which showed values that were too low when in sitter mode
    RN-5930 - Fixed an error that caused a player's own tracks to be displayed when looking at other players
    RN-5948 - Fixed an error that sometimes prevented an accepted player from joining an association, despite the player being displayed as an association member
    RN-8264 - Fixed an error in the endgame which caused the mayor bonus (-10% consumption) to not work correctly
    RN-6916 - Fixed an error that led to an incorrect calculation of a rival's waiting time
    RN-7272 - Fixed an error that caused the waiting time in cities to be displayed incorrectly if a worker with a reduction effect on waiting times was active
    RN-8261 - Fixed an error that displayed the Gold price for instant dispatch, despite vouchers being available
    RN-5665 - Fixed an error in the tutorial which caused a task not to be completed if the task was already finished before it became active
    RN-6909 - Fixed an error that caused the travel time of a train to be shown incorrectly
    RN-7849 - Fixed an error that caused the medal 'In good company' to not trigger correctly
    RN-5927 - Fixed an error with the reward distribution of landmarks, which didn't show the president's support
    RN-8246 - Fixed an error with the city selection that sometimes recommended overcrowded cities
    RN-7856 - Fixed an error that prevented a worker slot that was opened during an active auction from being used within that auction
    RN-8275 - Fixed an error that caused industries directly connected to a special route not to be shown in the schedule assistant
    RN-6429 - Fixed an error that allowed a player to watch videos for all the players on the server

    Additionally, both the schedules as well as the chat server have been recoded from scratch to fix a range of old errors.
    This includes the 'sleeping trains' in industries or the ever-returning green envelopes.

    Only for new servers:
    - Profits from passenger transports have been reduced. The profits have been decreased especially for longer routes.
    - The Gold price for instantly completing tracks is now dynamic and depends on the remaining construction time.
    - A new sandbox tutorial for new players which precedes the registration process on the server.
