The major update is live now!!
Get ready to explore the new 200 sq km mainland with improved view distance and battle fierce wildfires!
The Sawyer Isles
The mainland is 200 sq km, separated by rivers, mountains, and sea, composing a colossal new playground to explore. Find small towns and villages, airfields, industrial sites, train yards, bridges, docks, lighthouses, and more. New locations have been named to honour some players, youtubers, and other respected persons, with the Isles being named after legendary Scottish game programmer Chris Sawyer, creator of Transport Tycoon and others.
Hundreds of thousands of trees now grow over most islands, including snow covered trees in the arctic. These trees will set on fire, and that fire will spread over hours, quickly becoming difficult to fight, a threat to the location and it's inhabitants, and causing permanent damage to the environment.
The max view distance has been increased from 4km to 20km which is a huge deal when playing the game, especially when out at sea or in the air. Your ability to navigate is greatly enhanced. This can be controlled from the graphics settings.
If you are having trouble getting the update, don't forget to restart Steam!
This update has been at least 6 months in the making and we are really excited to be finally sharing it with you.
Much love <3
