Official wiki and mod specification released

Today the official Transport Fever Wiki and mod specification were released.

The >Wiki< gives background information about Transport Fever’s construction features, management options, game world and campaign. Also, there is a beginner’s guide with tips and tricks. Because the Wiki can be extended by the community we expect that it becomes a comprehensive source of information in future.

The Urban Games team is impressed by the amount and quality of mods already released in the >Steam Workshop<. To further motivate and support development of mods, we have published >a modding specification< as part of the official Wiki. As an example mod, we are excited to provide >a curved train station<.

In addition, we have released a tool to facilitate modding. With the >Model Viewer<, modders can preview their models and test features like animations, dynamic aging, coloring, logos, passenger load and more. There is also a feature to automatically create screenshots and GUI icons of vehicles.

This said, we wanted to let you know that development on Transport Fever continues and there will be additional patches. Based on the huge amount of feedback we get, we try to improve Transport Fever also in the future.

We say thanks for your interest and continue working hard so that we can release a next patch soon!


Performance patch released

Today a major performance patch has arrived. In addition to optimizing performance, the patch improves stability on Mac computers and much more.

Simulation, rendering and building performance has been significantly improved. Also, several user interface enhancements like e.g. a fluent mouse cursor or a save game progress bar make the game feel more responsive and fluent.

Some issues which occurred on specific Mac systems have been addressed. In particular, a random crash which happened after several minutes playing the game is solved now. Moreover, the terrain tool has been reworked, and several game-play and simulation changes make the game more enjoyable. Also, quite a few small bugs and campaign issues have been solved.

Please find the complete release notes >here<.

We hope that you like the latest improvements and wanted to tell you that Transport Fever will for sure also be improved in future.

The whole Urban Games team wishes you a great holiday season and a Happy New Year!


Robustness patch released

Today a major robustness patch has arrived. The patch includes both bug fixes and game-play improvements.

Please find the complete release notes >here<.

On the one hand, the patch solves a list of stability and compatibility issues. Most of the crashes that occurred randomly, at the end of a month or upon user interaction are solved now. Also, most of the crashes that occurred on startup or during initialization due to specific system configurations have been addressed. However, note that still it’s of upmost importance to update your graphics drivers to the latest version available.

On the other hand, the patch brings a list of game-play improvements to clear some common misunderstandings. Examples include more accurate visualization of station catchment areas, a maximal waiting time for vehicles set to full load mode, or a new warning to display that an industry has stopped production because its output stock is full.

Finally, there are additional improvements, like a more stable display resolution change mechanism or an optimized terrain tool. Also, translations have been improved, and, thanks to great community efforts, both Simplified and Traditional Chinese were added as new languages.

For sure Transport Fever will receive additional updates, including the already announced major performance patch which is currently work in progress. At this point we also wanted to emphasize that we are aware that still there are compatibility issues on certain Mac OS X systems which we address with highest priority. If you still encounter problems, please don’t hesitate to write us to; we are happy to help.

We hope that the newest patch improves your game experience and send the best wishes!
