I’ve played for around 15 hours so far and have to say that I like the simulation model. Although a lot of others are showing frustration as it doesn’t work in the way they expect or understand, I think I have it worked out pretty good. I have an industry producing at its max capacity (400) and my cities are doing pretty good population wise. My bank balance is over $100m and i’m in the 1920’s
For me the graphical bugs / lack of animation aren’t super important right now although it would be good if they were fixed eventually, and the track building tool is being improved from what I understand so that you can plan multi segments before confirming and laying the track.
