Title: Train Simulator: Miami - West Palm Beach Route Add-On
Dovetail Games - Trains
Release Date: 18 Dec, 2014
Lived in South Florida for 10 years. This route looks very real, Love the scenery.....A really big negative if you want to use Quck Drive, however, is it doesn't work on this route. Your train is placed in the opposite direction that you want to go, which makes Quick Drive unuseable. This is easily fixable my editing the Quick Driver scenario stating at West Palm southbound and turning the direction marker around. Search the forum for a thread on how to fix this.. Not worth it. Why?
- The P42 remains as buggy as ever (terrible brakes, terrible power application - seriously, cruising at 79mph in Notch 1 with the train STILL accelerating slightly? -, awful sounds)
- The new passenger cars have no inside view, no new sounds as well. If there's one thing good about them, it's the outside detail but I like more than just eye candy.
- The Dash 8 has awful brakes as well.
- The route is completely featurless. An obvious example are, as mentioned before, the super-vast highways that are almost completely empty or even worse, with cars spawning or disappearing directly in front of you.. This route for Train Simulator is very good it is A Expansion pack you get 2 Good Locomotives and A 70 mile track line that goes thorough Florida and beautiful Scenery its worth it.. Terrible. I was really looking forward to the passenger view in the viewliner sleeper and the dining car. Also they have REUSED SOUNDS again.The CSX has terrible braking, same with the Amtrak. I have never been more dissapointed in a DLC like i am for this. Well, I must say, I am extremely dissapointed with this one: let me tell you the good things first!
New track textures! Also, very nice scenery, lots to look at! The track has superelevated corners in some places, which is always a plus! Also, a nice variation of quiet zone, and horn-able crossings! Also included are two new Amtrak coaches, and a variety of frieght rolling stock. The Dash 8 has what seems to be a new cab!
Now for the bad stuff: try not to fall asleep :)
Reused sounds for the locos (what a surprise)
The P42 is basically a reskinned P32
The wipers on the P42 are right from in-cab, but backwards from outside (really?)
The new Viewliners have NO CAB VIEW!
The route is rather flat
The Level crossings use default signals and sounds
There is only career scenarios (would be nice to have some standard, no pressure scenarios)
I am sorry to say, I cannot recommend this route. It, to me, seems to be cutting quite a few corners, and was a fairly big waste of money. Unless DTG starts to get their butts in gear, I'm sorry to think that this might be the future of American Routes.
I can only say: don't get this route unless it is on sale :(
. I really liked the route the day I bought it but when I couldnt free roam the whole route was very dissapointed. If you're the type of person who likes scenarios I reccomend it for you but I prefer quick driving and free roaming the route therefore.. This route comes nowhere near feeling like the South Florida route it claims to depict.
I live in the area and even I got lost trying to place different locales. I've never been so disappointed in a route before.
It seems like Dovetail only put a token effort into recreating some landmarks of the route, and those landmark seem to be those which are near stations.
Even I-95 is a baren wasteland. It'd be better if they put at least a wall of unmoving static vehicles on it because then it'd feel more like South Florida!. Terrible. I was really looking forward to the passenger view in the viewliner sleeper and the dining car. Also they have REUSED SOUNDS again.The CSX has terrible braking, same with the Amtrak. I have never been more dissapointed in a DLC like i am for this. The route feel very accurate and all of the stations are in place that both Tri-Rail and Amtrak goes to. All of the stations are looked a like in real life. I live in South Florida so this route is a must for me to get which I got in the Summer collection in 2015. The P42DC comes with this route along with a CSX Dash 8-40CW.
+Route to cover the whole way from Miami Airport Station to Mangonia Park (75 Miles Long).
+New Amtrak coaches for Sliver Star and Sliver Meteor runs.
+All stations are very detailed
+Quiet zones along the route
+8 scenarios to do
+The route is flat due to it's in Florida.
+The feel when you drive in South Florida's rail is great.
-In a couple of level crossings, cars will spwan on the crossing even if the crossing gates are closed.
-Wrong physics on the CSX Dash-8 and has awful braking.
-The sounds on both locos were reused and sounds bad (The P42 sounds like the one from Empire Builder pack and the Dash 8 sounds like a BNSF Dash 9.
-The P42's wipers are in the WRONG position inside.
-The Amtrak logo font is wrong on the P42's.
-I-95 looks like a road of waste compared to what it is in real life.
-No insde view of the new Viewliners but they look eye candy from the outside.
Almost everything in the cons can be fixed by downloading the right mods but I would give this route 6.0\/10. I still recommend it but get it on sale which is my best bet.. Train Sim - West Palm Beach
\tWhen it comes to Train Simulator routes, the Palm Beach route is an underrated homerun. Simulating the CSX mainline to Miami, you\u2019ll get to drive the Dash 8 in CSX livery and the P42 in Amtrak livery as standard on about 70 miles of track. Features include 89 MPH running, switching, heavy traffic, and lots of great scenery to look at. In fact, I think this is one of the best routes for really making you feel you\u2019re in this location. There\u2019s just something about this route that I love, and it\u2019s so hard to put a finger on what\u2026
\tSo, to kick this review off, let\u2019s talk about the rolling stock for a moment. The Dash 8 is a excellent example of a modern American locomotive, as it should be as it\u2019s the only sort of US rolling stock DTG make, but I digress. Sounds are excellent, Cab view is incredible and functional, and the freight cars it pulls are varied and well done as well. But the real star of the show is the P42, which DTG knocked out of the park with this one. The horn is easily one of the best I\u2019ve ever heard in a train game, period. The cab looks great and again is functional, ditch lights work and flash when the horn is sounded. It\u2019s just nice, nice to drive, nice to look at, great job DTG!
\tThe route itself is also high quality too, and between the color palette, buildings, busy roads, and of course the occasional palm tree, it just feels real. There\u2019s always something to look at, there\u2019s always something to distract you from the task at hand, just like real life. The route is challenging to boot. For example, 90 to 45 MPH speed drops, constant and heavy traffic from both CSX and Amtrak, plus a myriad of crossings to whistle or bell for. Being a racing driver, I tend to play chicken at the speed drops. Waiting as long as I can to brake and still get the train under the 45 limit.
\tBut the best thing about this route is the additional DLC. The Seaboard U boats and Amtrak Pooch backdates the route to the 1970\u2019s-90\u2019s. Throw in some Chessie traffic and you\u2019re in for a bundle of colorful fun! The Amtrak Dash 8 brings the route back to the late 90\u2019s, mid 2000\u2019s with its iconic Pepsi can paint scheme. Plus, you can add the commuter train, which it\u2019s exact name escapes me, for stop start traffic. Like a good trainset it\u2019s expandable, even if for a premium.
\tIf I had to list some negatives, the biggest for me is Quick drive seems to spawn in trains backwards. Also, it\u2019s worth noting some people say the route isn\u2019t close enough to the real location, but I disagree. Yes, it\u2019s not exact, (Like most train sim routes) but it captures the spirit of Florida. It feels real, is fun to drive, and has some great rolling stock to boot\u2026
\tAll and all, The West Palm Beach route gets a recommendation from me, even at full price. However, like all train sim stuff, it\u2019s best to wait for a sale, where you can pick up the route and most of its DLC for around $30. And I highly recommend checking out the DLC too. I plan on doing reviews of them in the future but in short, they aren\u2019t as detailed as the locomotives that come in the route, but they\u2019re good enough to add extend the life of the route and thus your enjoyment.
\tIf I could make one request to the Train Sim devs out there. Somebody need to make those new bullet trains coming to Florida, the Brightline.
