• ## OpenRail Map

yup, back up now so panic over

• ## OpenRail Map

Is it just me or is the rn.openrail.ru site down?

If so has the map been moved elsewhere as I find this map to be the better one of the two RN maps I know about. http://i-dont-think.so/rn/maps/ being the other.

• ## New End Game Tonnage Calculation

how are you seeing EG tonnages on a server that EG has not started on yet?

I couldn't see the tonnage, I was just wondering if the new formula was the reason behind the cities being taken to higher levels than normal. It is unusual on TB for the #1 city to be above 40 with #10 generally in the mid 30s.

• ## New End Game Tonnage Calculation

Sniffa .. what server are you seeing different numbers on? standard or Express?

HMR has posted for 2 Express servers so far

Tower Bridge - Express

I wonder if the new tonnage has had an effect on the way people are pushing the cities. 11th place is at level 42 now with #1 at 43 and most of the EG cities still pushing for levels.

• ## New End Game Tonnage Calculation

The correct formula now is:

46000*2*((113/100)^0.7)=100217

So the spreadsheet formulas need updating? Same to you as to hemi, if standard/*2 are *0.7 what are the *4 servers

• ## New End Game Tonnage Calculation

46,000 x 3*((113/100)^7)

I thought Fast Forward Server was *.07 according to the OP

• ## New End Game Tonnage Calculation

Can you please check our calculations based on the current situation in a city

Basic tonnage for level 33 is 46,000.

Active players is 113, so 1.13^.5 is 1.06

Express calculator is 3.

3*1.06*46,000 = 146280

Which is correct, if either?

• ## Sitters

As 12hrs is an extremely long time on the *4 servers shouldn't the delay before a sitter can take over have been reduced?

For example I am off to work shortly on an 11hr night shift. Normally it wouldn't be an issue, but on a *4 server that is 1/8th of the era. By the time I return the bank will have been full for several hours no doubt and there won't be any station building going on.

• ## Fast Forward Voucher

When can we collect or gold from Com6 and can we collect it on m26??

• ## 🥚 Eggs! Eggs! Eggs! 🥚

169 eggs

S203 - Tower Bridge

• ## ⏩ Fast forward - 4x speed

I would like to drop a couple questions, just to hear everyone's thoughts...

How do you like the Fast Forward 4x speed so far? Is there anything you would change?

Would you like to see more speed options in the future (regular, 2x, 4x...)?

I am enjoying the X4, however I would love to see a Steam over Europe version. It would be very interesting to see how the tactics altered on that.

Can you please get s6.rail-nation.com (Rapid Rail) organised to have another run, preferably with pre-registration. We need at least one English only server

• ## Serversdown ???

Servers going down is never good, but halfway through a City Comp makes it even worse as it totrally screws with your tactics.

• ## Select only Cargo or Passenger trains for a particular task

I have mentioned this previously in this thread and a couple of other times over the years.

It is especially relevant when you have many choices to haul from and you want the quickest route, rather than the biggest earner. This could be for a comp, especially pax, or in EG for example.

A filter for bonus engines could be useful if applied to the cargo/pax so you can split the engines easier. I normally use my bonus engines as cash earners while the regular engines do the grinding until later on when red kite, bull etc are too slow to help much so they are put on supply routes but that is a personal thing, obviously

• ## Select only Cargo or Passenger trains for a particular task

Which is on the table?

1. The ability to select pax or cargo trains

2. The ability to sort by quickest journey

3. Both the above

• ## ⏩ Fast Forward - The Prediction Game

9hrs 13 minutes

• ## Skewed Comp Start Times

Just start driving, thoose few seconds

Could lose you the comp when you are against people who complete in less than 5 seconds

• ## Skewed Comp Start Times

reload the page and the problem is solved.

Nope, tried that

• ## Skewed Comp Start Times

I think the game clock is messed up somewhat. Which one do you go by?

• ## Chapter 3

Mecha-Heads are the cheapest but let down by both punctuality and quality so would be rejected, due to quality being the highest priority.

Swiss Metal have the highest quality but are also the most expensive.

General Machines are as punctual as Swiss Metal but are 2/3 of the price with lower durability.

We are unaware of what difference the durability makes, ie how long a component from Swiss Metal will last in comparison to General machines. Does the 50% increase in price equate to 50% longer durability, or twice as long? Further tests would be needed to determine the actual surability. I would therefore recommend purchasing components from both Swiss Metal and General Machines for evaluation purposes.

If further testing was not feasible then I would purchase from Swiss Metal due to their greater durability for only a 50% increase in price.
