    Update 1.4 has been released! Adding Enhanced AI, Crossings and Legacy-Branch

    New addition
    Legacy branch
    Ever since the launch of the original beta, we’ve been working hard to bring a stack of improvements and additions to Railway Empire, such as enhanced AI, crossings, balancing, a random map generator, the full Transcontinental map, 100-year tech tree, and much more. And there’s still more to come, and we promise to deliver even more content and improvements in the future.

    However, all these changes are also affecting the core of the game: the code. According to recent reports, some of these changes may have an effect on save games. For example, we recently had reports about an issue with random maps. For that reason, to protect your saved games and previous content (in case of incompatibility with current and future updates), we are introducing a new build called the Legacy branch, which will allow you to boot up an older version of the game to ensure that whatever we add to the main game, you can still access your old saved games.

    How to enter the Legacy branch
    1. Go to your Steam library
    2. Right-click Railway Empire
    3. Select Properties
    4. Select the "Betas" section
    5. Select "Legacy" from the drop-down menu
    6. Steam should automatically start the download

    To opt out from the Legacy branch, just repeat the steps above and select "NONE" in step 5.
    AI opponents are now able to use the complex track system.
    The AI can now make use of signals and multi-tracks, when the player selects the realistic track-building mode in the game settings.
    In realistic mode, the AI usually builds two parallel tracks – one for each direction. They will also make use of signals and crossings.
    Players can select the track-system for the AI in the game settings. So there are now three modes that you can now choose from:
    • “Realistic” - Both the player and the AI use the realistic track-building system.
    • “Normal” - Both the player and the AI use the simple track-building system, where trains can pass through each other.
    • “Normal AI” - The player uses realistic track-building, but the AI uses the normal (ie. Simple) track-building system.

    Players and AI can build crossings.
    Players and AI can now make use of a multitude of crossings, for example the frequently-requested X-crossings, among many others.

    • Fixed several issues related to random maps, by changing the way that random maps are created in the first place.
      • Disclaimer: Because of this change, and the other improvements that have been made in favor of the enhanced AI and crossings, there is a chance that old save games before update 1.4 may be corrupted and in rare cases, might even be broken. If you want to continue playing your version 1.3 random map save games, you can do so on the newly introduced Legacy branch.
    • Added an "Undo" button to the "Set up rail line" options.
    • Added "Track utilization" to the "Edit station" screen.
    • Based on community feedback, new rails will now snap into a parallel position at the end of existing tracks.
