We are aware that everybody highly awaits the upcoming usability patch. We are working very hard to allow for a release as soon as possible. If everything goes according to plan, we can officially release the patch before the end of March.
The patch will introduce a lot of improvements. To ensure everything runs smoothly and to accommodate the request for a more open development at the same time, we would like to invite everybody to test the patch beforehand. The beta test is scheduled to start on Thursday, March 23 – an application is not required to participate. We would also like to point out that currently a patch for better stability on Mac OS can already be tested. Information on how to test can be found in the “Testing version” paragraph >in the Wiki<.
In addition to >the already unveiled features< the patch will also include a redesigned line and vehicle window, improved train braking behavior and better late game performance. Also, two new languages will be added to Transport Fever: Text and subtitles will be available in Italian and Portuguese, too.
The improved debug mode is tailored especially to the requirements of modders and now also includes a camera tool to record keyframe camera movement as screenshot sequences.
In this regard, we also would like to let you know that we are currently planning a modding contest with attractive prizes. With this contest we would like to show our appreciation for the outstanding work of our modding community.
We say thanks for your trust in our work and for your patience. We are confident that the upcoming patch will be worth to wait!
