the challenge of an everyday shift of a Berlin subway driver. Discover the
fascinating world of tunnel systems and original detailed stations of
Germany's capital Berlin and enjoy the view when driving along the above
ground sections of the Bülowstrasse and the Schönhauser Allee! Includes the
new 'Enhanced Graphic Engine' and the 'Reality-Mode' by TML.
"Going underground in the capital"
This package contains two complete subway
routes with its 53 stations. The U2 with its 29 stations takes the virtual
driver from the newly designed station Pankow in the north-east of the city
through the eastern part calling at Alexanderplatz and then moving on to the
western part via the Potsdamer Platz, Wittenbergplatz, Bahnhof Zoo, right to
Ruhleben. Sections of this route run above ground and are modelled true to
The second subway line, the U8, has 24 stations and connects the northern
part of Berlin with the southern part. It runs from Wittenau to
Hermannstraße. All stations, depots and animated train wash facilities are
originally detailed and the tunnel systems will give a true impression of
the atmosphere underground.
Pièce de résistance of this add-on is surely
the newly developed light- and texturing system, which is a part of the
'Enhanced Graphic Engine'. It is now possible to display realistic
lighting effects in tunnels as well as reflections on glass, metal or water
surfaces. This is the first time ever that this has been made possible for
Train Simulator. A highlight is the special start-up program which allows
the virtual train driver to select various settings such as a TML special
camera system which enables an outside view of the train inside a tunnel,
also a unique feature.
The 'Reality Mode' activates the true
life of a virtual driver. Wear and tear is now a major issue for the trains.
Systems can fail and driving the train in service will make it dirty meaning
it has to be taken into maintenance. This however will make the train be
unavailable for a given time. A thrilling effect is the frame rate of this
Even old systems with an 800MHz processor will
easily achieve a smooth simulation. .A well-documented and printed manual
