Trainz Simulator for Mac

Had recently tried some train sim demos on my old windows pc and quite liked them so I had a look at what was available for my iMac (2011) and came accross Trainz Simulator for Mac as an online download from iTunes.

Was really put off by some of the reviews about loading times and bugs etc. so I kept putting it off, but I decided to give it a go anyway and see for myself, nothing ventured nothing gained as they say.

So expecting to have a long wait on the download (I made sure the kettle was filled) I was surprised at the speed of the download and installation which only took about 25/30 mins.

Started the Trainz Sim and it worked like a dream, made a few adjustments in my settings like display, audio etc. but it is working absolutely perfect, I am enjoying the surveyor end of it more, designing my own layouts etc. other than just the driving but there is nothing I could complain about at all.

This is my own honest and personal experience of the download and gameplay of Trainz for Mac and I would certainly recommend potential buyers to try it for themselves. It also runs much quicker and smoother on my iMac than TS2010 ever did on my windows pc.

Good luck to all you budding train drivers anyway!

Content not as advertised.

In the description it boldy says ‘Doncaster Peterborough route’, yet that doesn’t seem to be present in the game! I also found that there were no trams, boats, or cars (as advertised), and the routes were poorly rendered. The game description is very misleading, and I would not have bought it had I known this! The game has very little to offer. The creating GUI is appalling and impossible to use! I also found when i saved it, it didn’t appear in the Saved Tracks section, so half an hours work for nothing! The game I normally play is free to use and far superior. I don’t think this game lives up to the standards most developers set. I would be ashamed to put my name to this. This game is so terrible that they should pay you to buy it! I would think twice before buying this, as you will have to wait an hour for it to load and for you to be dissapointed. I would avoid this game like a disease! Shame on you, N3V games, you sneaky rip-off merchants.


OK OK so I was using the Kings Cross route which is a huge file and really eats away at your GFX card RAM etc, yes it has bugs but on other routes it works fine, but there is some silly things which do need ironing out like, train cab view not swiching direction when it supposed too do, making new senarios is hard work, there is a LOT to learn, the manual is OK but when you go deeper there is a lot too look for which in not explained in the manual, more tutorials would be nice, for the novice user there is an overwhelming amount of things too learn, but simplyifed stuff is OK, don't get me wrong it is a good game, but in the way of train physics it does not come up to BVE standards, which is a big, big shame, hopefully these will be implemeneted into future releases.
