    Why does any random player who just happens to pre-register first get to choose the home city?

    This should not be allowed, it should be the chairman (and or deputies) only!

    In short, the home city should be set as default to the current home city and only be allowed to be changed by the leadership of a corp, not just any random player. Why? Because it is the leadership that decides in which city the next round is going to be played.

    This is not decided by the players and a player not aware of changing plans or who doesn't have the best interest of the corp in mind can just pre-register first and change the selected home city for everyone? Why was this done this way? It makes no sense at all!

    Can't you change it back?

    This is how its done every time.

    I got my tickets for the second survey now also, thanks a lot :)

    The solution for this is option number 4.

    The reason for this:

    The Napping Neptune takes 5 hours and 10 minutes to reach Hicksburg. It will be there at 11:40 pm. Then the passengers have 20 minutes to embark their train to the next destination. This is at 0$ cost.

    Option 1 would be too late, they would arrive at 34 minutes past midnight in Hicksburg, and it costs 30.000 $ for overnight spending.

    Option 2 would cost 16.000 $ for refunding tickets, and no passengers would reach their destination.

    Option 3 would cost 12.000 $ and it would make it in time, but its more expensive than option number 4. (They would reach Hicksburg at 10:04 pm)

    The supplier to choose is Swiss Metal

    The reason:

    Durability/quality is the most important, it has a multiplier of 4

    Price has a multiplier of 2

    Punctuality has a multiplier of 1

    Since Swiss Metal has the best quality, it has a quality value of 60, General Machines has quality level of 40, Mecha Heads has quality value of 20. All of this is multiplied by 4.

    Swiss Metal 240 points

    General Machines 160 points

    Mecha Heads 80 points

    Price is reverse so Mecha Heads has 120 points (2 X 60)

    General Machines 80 points (2 X 40)

    Swiss Metal 40 points (2 X 20)

    Finally for punctuality 5 is max so 5 = 60 points

    Swiss Metal 48 points

    General Machines 48 points

    Mecha Heads 36 points

    In the total ranking we have:

    Swiss Metal 328 points (240+40+48)

    General Machines 288 points (160+80+48)

    Mecha Heads 236 points (80+120+36)

    Swiss Metal should be purchased

    The supervisor will make it in time.

    This is how it goes:

    The supervisor runs at 14 km/h, that is the same as 3,88 meters per second. He will reach the switch after 1620 seconds.

    Train A travels at 160 km/h, which is the same as 44,44 meters per second. So this train will travel 72000 meters in 1620 seconds. This is 72 km.

    Train B travels at 120 km/h which is the same as 33,33 meters per second. So this train will travel 54000 meters in 1620 seconds. This is 54 km.

    The trains will in total have covered 128 km before the supervisor reaches the switch. They will then still be 12 km apart.

    The start time is: 30 minutes per rank + 30 minutes per level. If Rank 1 is level 40 and rank 5 is level 33, then rank 5 start 4*30 minutes (for rank) + 7*30 minutes (for level) after rank 1

    Thanks that is something I finally understood after more than a year in the game, thanks to hilti2 message earlier in this thread, but its nice you pointed it out.

    Just an idea.

    In the Records overview, include Association prestige also. The highest and maybe the biggest win over 2nd spot.

    For SoE maybe also Biggest Region points, and biggest win of 2nd place Region.

    And also Region points records

    No, the level of the city at place 10 is important cause the level determines the stock size of a mega city. See Tool for End Game in Steam over Europe for a table.

    And yes the level of city 11 (or 12, 13, etc.) doesnt matter for the stock size. It will the same amout as city 10. But the level matters for the start time. For each level less than city 10 a city has to start 30 mins later.


    I meant it didn't matter for the stock level for city below number 10, but thanks for clearing out the point with 30 mins later.

    Yes, your city has to haul just as much as the 10th city on the list. It does not matter what's your city's actual place is 15 or 12.


    So also it doesn't matter if city number 10 has level 30 or level 40. And it doesn't matter if your city has level 25 or level 39, it just will have to clear the same amount of goods as number 10 city?


    I have a question for end game cities on SoE.

    If your city is ranked below 10th, but still becomes the end game city by being the best in the region. Do you have to haul the number of goods equal to the 10th best city in the game?

    Or is there a minimum level you need to reach?

    Hi there,

    We haven't shared a timeline or any dates about the next scenario, so I'm not sure where you picked the year 2019? Or might you be talking about Rail Nation: Origin Journey?

    We did have Origin Journey this year (map of Germany, Austria and Switzerland) and it will return with Express speed: Origin Journey returns at Express speed!

    I am so sorry Samisu

    I think it was just in my head that I thought it would be launched during 2019. Looking back at the different threads, I can't see anything about a timeline. In fact one place it mentions, that there is no timeline to be revealed.

    It was just in my head, so I always expected it for several months now to be revealed. Sorry I didn't mean to criticize.

    However it was a periode where you launched several threads. First what kind of map, then communication system, then worker, then symbols. Just now its been very quite about the topic for a while ;)

    Can't find the rankings anymore though, to see where the miserable me ended up :P lol
