Its time for another Issue of Model Rolling Line! It's been over 8 months since the last issue, and im so glad to finally be releasing a new one!
This issue goes over the Color-comp we had, and also goes into detail about the new Sao Paulo expansion coming to Rolling Line!
You can find the new magazine issue in-game or you can also read it on the Gaugepunk Games website
After my trip to Sao Paulo (Brazil) I've returned with big plans for Rolling Line's first ever official expansion! The magazine goes in to more detail, but ill certainly say that its going to feature an official layout comparable in size to the games current New Zealand main layout! along with around 7 new locomotives (diesel, electric and steam) rolling stock, passenger wagons and TONS of unique props!
This is expansion is going to take me around 3-4 months to build, and will involve many smaller feature updates along the way to make this new map possible (things like roads and overhead wires!). While this is going to be a paid DLC, all new gameplay features (and many of the props/wagons/trains that aren't unique to Brazil) will be released as normal free updates, which means updates will continue as normal while this expansion is being worked on!
This will also involve a full translation into the Portuguese language, which also lays the foundations for other translations to other languages in the future!
This information is all covered inside the magazine, but here is the essential info about which locations and trains are planned for this expansion:
Along with the new magazine issue, there are a couple of small fixes included in this update:
- Fixed issue where colored lights would not be updated when using the multi-Paint UI
- Fixed some mesh errors on the ferry and classic car props
There's going to be lots of interesting updates coming in the future in preparation for the Sao Paulo expansion, things like roads, more track pieces and even overhead wires!
The development of this expansion marks a big milestone in Rolling Line's development, and its going to be a HUGE job.
This is going to be the largest sum of content ive ever worked on to date!
