    Just a quick question.. I have had my career engine so long I cant remember if you have to play a first round to get one or its automatic at the start of first game...a newbie has asked and my mind has just gone please someone

    You need to advance to career level 2 to get the career engine. Just to add the reason why Bluebalu gave the correct hint.

    Well, its just like in Travian. Dual-accs (two players playing the same acc) were quite usual there. And even tripple- or quad-accs. I knew some back than and I played an acc with a friend too.

    I guess the rules were just copied from Travian. But I don't know Dual-accs in Rail Nation. Not enough to do in this game for that. :-D Ok someone for the time while I sleep would be convinient.

    At the EG If a good in finished 5 to 10 minutes before hourly recalculation, the caller usually ask to Park for the next hour to start. I thing wasting 5-10min is not so effective. What else a caller can do the 5 - 10 min before recalculation?

    I can assure you that no caller likes to park the engines. Usually only goods within one track to the city like coal are possible during so little time, but only with zero or little waiting time. The second option are goods with two or more industries. Hauling from one industry untill recalc and then switch to the second industry. Tthats a risky gamble though, because two players hauling from the wrong industry are enough to ruin that plan. My experience with such gamles isn't good. It usually only works when the second industry is much more away from the city. But in that case waiting till recalc and hauling from there after recalc is better…

    I was reading in the Pollux locomotive details about the upgrades of this locomotive and I see that 1 upgrade is declared to gain if I watch first 14 videos in one day. That is not working. Today I was watching 26 videos to get the upgrade.

    Thats not quite correct. You'll get the upgrade within the first 14 bonusvideos. A bonusvideo is the second video. So worst case is that you'll have to watch overall 28 videos with plus acc. 14 of the first and 14 of the second vids.

    This is a request for advice and not a complaint.

    I have an association member who seems intent on causing trouble in the city (we are rank 3). He sent me a PM when he arrived urging me to write to another association leader complaining about their conduct. I declined and he hasn't sent me another. However, I am beginning to suspect that other players have received them also as trouble is brewing. This is a city which has until now been remarkable for it's lack of bickering. This player is constantly complaining about other people's lack of team hauling but having observed his play carefully for the last 5 days I'd say that he only hauls for the team when there's cash or prestige in it for him. So what is the best legitimate approach? Any ideas?

    First you could ask the other members of you association privately or in the assiciation forum if the new one wants to stir trouble.

    Are you the chair? If I was the chair I would aks him to go to the "chain of command". Which means he writes and complains to me and I talk (or not) with the chair of the other association. Just because its more productive if the chairs (and their trusted ones) work to solve problems behind the curtain.

    And of course write him privately that he can't complain about others while he himself does the same.

    If he stil doesn't change first a yellow card and then a red card which means kicking him.

    Wie bitteschön definiert sich "Langstreckenlok"?

    Schlechte Beschleunigung. Beispiele sind Falke, Phoenix oder Satyr

    Bei manchen kann man es sich an z.B. "Zugkraftmonster"

    Hohe Zugkraft=viele Waggons

    ich mit "Sprinter"

    Hohe Beschleunigung, bestes Beispiel Prometheus


    Kenn ich nicht, noch nicht gelesen


    Sehr hHohe Zuverlässigkeit, verschleißt also langsam.

    Und wann gibt es die Lok jetzt? Ich spiele seit 3 Tagen auf dem Deutschen Server Stellwerk, habe mehr als 100 Videos geschaut aber bisher nichts von einer Pollux gesehen. Oder kann ich die nur bekommen wenn ich bei den Losen Glück habe und bekomme die dann in EPO 6???

    Gar nicht, weil Stellwerk das Update nicht bekommen hat. RN hats wegen eines Bug zurückgestellt. Gibt es dann erst in der nächsten runde.

    Thank you for your answer. It seems to a rumor, which someone started, as you can´t point me to any direct link, and non of my colleague knows about a statement like that.

    Mal ganz abgesehen davon, dass es auch den Suchtfaktor der Videos einschränkt und verhindert, dass einige Spieler die Gewohnheit entwickeln, Tag und Nacht Videos zu schauen und dabei den Schlaf vernachlässigen.

    Translation by DeepL: Not to mention that it also limits the addictiveness of the videos and prevents some players from developing the habit of watching videos day and night, neglecting sleep.


    1. Its just the usual consumption rule. Nothing was changed. It seems like you are just not used to more populated cities in era 1 which level faster. I had the first experience like that years ago on a german server.

    2. The smaller city has a lower consumption because it has fewer players.

    3. Era 1 has 14 days. You don't need level 4 at day 2.

    But that's not fair because city population should be taken into consideration, not server population, won't you agree?

    You missunderstood. Server population isn't a factor into the calculation of the consumption. But if a server is more populated individual cities have more players too. And cities level faster cause there are more players hauling. And then the dynamic cunsumption calculation increases the consumption. Especially the time component hurts. You'll the a big difference of the consumption in your city at level 3 between day 2 and day 3 of the era.

    Its like you forget "Halve waiting time". Thats the real pay2win element. BTW: It gave more prestige when it was introduced. And obviously the lottery which is the original pay2win element since the start of the game.
