    Stock Market Update (version 1.7) has been released on the public beta branch

    • Dynamic platform choice
      • Large train stations and warehouses can now be upgraded with a signaling control. All trains passing or stopping at such a station will make their own choice of platform.
        Trains will then always choose the platform which is the least busy at that time, which will then reduce idle time at highly frequented stations.
        During the creation of train lines, routing to a specific platform is not available at train stations with a signaling control.
      • Another use of train stations with a signaling control is the ability to reduce idle times caused by maintenance of engines. While a locomotive engine is serviced at a station with signaling control, other trains entering the station will choose a different platform automatically.
        For highly frequented lines, an additional warehouse with signaling control and maintenance shed can be constructed.
        Trains that need to be serviced will stop at the warehouse, while other trains will pass the warehouse on a free track.
    • New Staff member has been added
      • The Analyst will cause hysteria on the stock market by planting false reports to increase ordecrease the share price of a company.
    • Banks / Finance update
      • It is now possible to acquire 100% of a company’s shares without merging with it. In such an event, the player will automatically receive all surplus of the company. It will no longer be able to expand, but will continue to do business as usual. This state can only be change by a merger with that company

    • Some seed values of random scenarios have not been processed correctly during input.
      Awards, which have already been paid out for connecting a city or a business, will not be offered again.

    I'd like to report bugs. May I do it here?


      Hi voymoron,
