First of all, we would like to wish you all a happy holiday season and success in the coming year. Thank you for your interest, support, feedback, comments and questions during the last year. We would like to let you know that your participation is very welcome.
Just in time before Christmas we are ready to give you an overview of the vehicles in Train Fever.
The game features vehicles from more than 150 years of transportation history (1850 – 2000+). Today we show a part (about one third) of the vehicles which will be contained in the initial release. All images below are made with our in-game rendering engine, so they will look quite similar in the final game. Of course, they are still in development.
We start with steam, diesel and electric locomotives in chronological order:
Next we list train cars. They can be arbitrarily combined with locomotives. Note that there are also freight train cars available (however we show only one freight car for goods here):
Streetcars (trams) are a great way to master transport within cities. They are lighter and shorter than trains and – most important – they can handle more curvature. Note that the first streetcar is actually a horse-driven streetcar (unfortunately the horse is still missing on the picture 😉 ). Here are a few streetcar examples:
Buses and trucks are the ideal choice for local and medium distance transport. They are much cheaper than trains and might be a good alternative especially on hilly terrain. The first picture shows a carriage, which will be available at the beginning of the game:
These and many more vehicles are still in development (in total the game will feature about 30 trains). Most of the vehicles are from Europe (especially Germany and Switzerland), but we will also add some more vehicles from other countries. In any case, we plan to support modding (adding user-created vehicles), and there is also the possibility to create DLCs after the initial release.
