    Train Fever From Just Trains


    Chuck_Jodry-VJPL

    Train Fever is an advanced railway simulation  . Establish a transport company and be its manager. Build infrastructure such as railways and stations, purchase transportation vehicles and manage lines. Fulfill the people's needs and watch cities evolve dynamically.

    Expand your company successfully and master the vagaries of the historical context. Earn achievements and collect experience points. Build the largest and wealthiest transport empire the world has ever seen!
     
    Train Fever runs on an engine specifically developed for this game. The engine has great innovative scope and specialises in procedural content and urban simulation. A key point is the fact that there is no grid to which game objects have to be aligned, allowing for a great degree of freedom.
     •Randomly generated, modifiable terrain with realistic dimensions
    •Advanced passenger simulation
    •Dynamically simulated urban development
    •Procedurally generated buildings
    •No grid – the game world is not limited to 90 (or 45) degree angles!
    •Vehicles from more than 150 years of transportation history
    •Achievements and experience points
    •Passenger and freight transport
    •Detailed 3D graphics
    •Freely adjustable zoom factor
     

    Detailed Description

     

    ADVANCED PASSENGER SIMULATION

    Each person is individually simulated. Given a home address and a workplace, people decide whether to travel by foot, by car or by using public transport. The method of choosing one of the three options is as simple as it is effective - take the fastest and cheapest route!

    Of course, it’s in your hands to build a powerful transport infrastructure to help people to decide which option to take.

    DYNAMICALLY SIMULATED URBAN ENVIRONMENT

    The more workplaces people can reach within a limited travelling time, the more attractive their home address becomes. More attractive means a higher land price, leading to higher urban density and growth.

    Therefore you can greatly influence urban development. Build a new bus line into an unconnected quarter, and the quarter will grow! Build a railway connection to a neighbouring city, and both cities may grow!

    PROCEDURALLY GENERATED BUILDINGS

    As opposed to the majority of other transport titles, buildings are not premodelled and instanced. In this game world you will never see the same building twice. There is always something never-seen-before to explore!

    An advanced land use simulation decides whether to build residential, industrial or commercial buildings. For instance, residential areas don’t like industrial air pollution, but they need to quickly reach lots of workplaces.
