  1. Really? I think it is very shallow compared to others. That's not to say there's no fun to be had playing it, but I don't think it's as involving or complex as any of the others I've played.
  2. The seed I used to complete the trophies was 16. To, hopefully, avoid confusion I've used the colour and position on the list on the left. This list should net you non-space trophies and It took me about one and a half playthroughs to get to 777 spaces. I don't have a second account otherwise, I would have included the trophies as they popped. So anyone feel free to edit the list to include these.
  3. In my experience, you MUST play this game offline and only download DLC for a track your going for the trophies on. Also DO NOT d/l any new engines until you have completed the scenarios and distance trophies for a given track; these usually extend the number of scenarios and mileage you'll have to do for the main (dlc) track trophies.
  4. Well that's pretty darn annoying. Leave teh shop at end of chapter 4 & suddenly I'm told I need the 2nd DLC to proceed. £6.49 for 3 poxy trophies to get 100%? I don't think so... 💩
  5. It depends a lot on luck and a degree of skill. Since the recent changes I reckon it's at least 5/10 difficulty, but 100% is certainly achievable for a decent player. It's a shame they changed the images too. I rather liked the animals, made the game a little bit different, but now with the new images, it's just dull and boring.
  6. Thanks anyway. I agree letting the wheel spin a few times seems to help. I preferred to press as it approached the light blue. I hit the lifes more consistently than if I tried for yellow.
  7. Looks like they've reduced the score requirements again. I'm now first on Easy with almost double the 2nd place score and even better, the trophy unlocked as well. 🤓
  8. I can get 100k fairly regularly. I try not to level up, to avoid those extra animals, but obviously I need to nail a few Lucky Continues to get that big score. When this first came out, I read a post where someone claimed it was easy & they got them all the time. You seem to do very well on your vid', so can you tell me whether that was hit and hope or did you have a timing strategy? TIA
  9. Well that's annoying. I'm at no.2 now, but not auto-popped the trophy.
  10. Sadly, it didn't for me. I messed upon my Hard run and accidentally press L1 or R1, so I didn't get that trophy. So now I have to do another third run on Hard and don't think I can face a fourth on Easy.
  11. A lot of people have had issues getting the Talent 2 moving after taking over a service. There's an old thread over on Steam about this, but since I've not spent any money on Steam, I can't post this solution on there. I suspect this is a bit late for most people, but there are probably a few folk like me who own TSW 2020 and won't buy TSW 2 to give DTG any more money while they outright refuse to fix the trophy popping bugs in TSW. Some things will likely be obvious, but just go with it! Take over service and sit in driver seat Close driver door. Set reverser to neutral Set brake to 1 (5% or so) Set Contrast on centre screen to dark. Not essential, but it makes a later step easier to see. Wait for passengers to load, then close the doors. Move reverser to forward You should see the T symbol between SIFF & DB flashing on the screen (just above the light switch). Release handbrake. When T stops flashing and remains lit, apply power. 1 or 2 should be sufficient. If you've followed this list, you should start moving and can apply more power as required. The main issues with the BR1442 not moving seems to be that the safety measures apparently won;t allow the train to move if you apply power before the T is lit. Thanks to faneisback on Steam for his post which helped me figure it all out.
  12. Sorry, I didn't mean to take over this thread, but I got another response from DTG containing this extract: "Please note that we have had no previous reports to suggest that other players are having trouble with the trophies you mentioned." So they lie as well as ignore customers? There are numerous threads on many forums, including their own, complaining about this issue and, in fact, their first reply to me directed me to a FAQ on what to do if this happens. So how about we inundate them with support requests about the TSW 2020 trophies not unlocking?
  13. Thank you and goodnight? Their latest (last?) response - my emphasis Thank you for brining this to our attention. We would like to thank our amazing community for supporting Train Sim World 2020. However, we have made the difficult to decision to move forward with the franchise by focusing all of our efforts on Train Sim World 2. We are preserving and updating select content from TSW 2020 for use in Train Sim World 2, as well as creating brand-new experiences. Therefore, we have made a record of this issue for posterity, if we are able to revisit this content at any point in the future. Community feedback is what drives our development, and your feedback will be used to better inform our future work.
  14. Well, MSB; All in Order didn't pop, so I'm not wasting my time trying the WSR scenarios again. I'm convinced it's an issue with the trophies miscounting when loco dlc is installed. I raised a ticket with Dovetail and was fobbed off with the guff already in their FAQ. We are sorry to hear that you are having trouble unlocking certain trophies. To start with, we would recommend that you try the following options. Check the criteria for unlocking the trophy - The criteria for unlocking a trophy can often be very specific and it is worth double-checking the exact requirements by viewing the trophy list of your console. Have other players unlocked the trophy recently? - There are many third-party trophies tracking websites which can give you an idea of how recently other players have unlocked the same trophies. Sign Out of the PSN - Sign out of your PSN account, reboot your console and sign back into your account from the main screen. Synchronise your Trophies - Press the OPTIONS button while viewing (Trophies), and then select [Sync with PlayStation Network]. Wait for the trophy to unlock - If the PlayStation servers are busy the trophy may not unlock immediately, Try coming back to the game another day, and the trophy may unlock during normal gameplay. Re-attempt the trophy- Repeat the criteria for the trophy While offline In a new player profile
  15. After a little experimenting I've come to the conclusion that some Scenario trophies aren't unlocking because the game is confused about how many you've done when you've installed loco DLC that adds scenarios. Take West Somerset Railways. On my profile when I load the track to play it, it shows 12/12 scenarios. However, if I go to the driver icon at the bottom, then filter on Route, WSR shows 6/12 as completed. IOW it has ignored the extra 6 added with the loco DLC. I have a PS4 and PS4 Pro so I installed TSW 2020 on to the PS4 and cloud saved my Pro profiles down to it and only installed the tracks. On the Pro RSN showed 2/8, but when run on the PS4 it showed 1/5 (with none of the locos DLC installed). So I then completed the 4 remaining scenarios and the trophy popped. Seems to apply to the distance trophies too. I completed the M3 trophies on Long Island, then completed the distance required for American Hauler 2 with the M7. No trophy. Copied it over to the PS4 and the trophy popped as soon as I used the M7. So I figure you need a clean download without any loco DLC installed to get the awkward trophies to unlock. I suggest saving your current save to the cloud and USB to keep it safe, but do NOT delete it. Then delete TSW 2020 completely and only install tracks as needed to get the errant trophies - do not install any locos. You can do that later if you still need some of those trophies. I tried this for WSR but it was already showing 6/6, so I completed one again, but no trophy. In this case, I'm going to redo them on a new profile. I'll report back on how that goes.
  16. It may be glitched, but you shouldn't be quitting out anyway. The trophies specifically state that you must complete the level after collecting all minikits. For example, "Complete ''The Final Battle'' with all Minikits Unlocked".
  17. Once you've bought the farm doing jobs to reach $1m soon becomes tedious, but thankfully there's much easier way to earn money - buy and sell vehicles. Every Monday the store has a special discount on one vehicle, which you can buy and immediately sell back. You'll make profit of equal to to 50% of the discount. Obviously the more expensive the vehicle being discounted the bigger profit you can make and, therefore, the quicker you'll make your $1m. Sadly, this is random and my first discount was on a counterweight; a huge $75 profit on each sale. Since the offer changes on a Monday, go to your farm and continually use Sleep to advance time until it's just before midnight on Sunday. Then upload your save to the cloud / USB so you can reload if you get a poor offer. My second offer was on a Corrido B180 trailer which netted me $2500 each sale. I got from $305k to $500 in under 10 minutes. I decided this wasn't quick enough, so I advanced time, but got a discount on a front bucket; another tiny profit. After I'd reloaded, I got a discount on the Caldera N/175 tractor - a tidy $8k per sale. This got me to $1m in under 30 minutes. Acknowledgement: My method expands on a suggestion posted on Steam.
  18. I just don't understand why a time sink like this has no plat', but 79p, 5 minute junk does. I enjoy a good sim and don't mind putting in the time for games such as Mudrunner and Snowrunner (although Snowrunner was annoying by not having dlc trophies). I'm even crawling towards the plat' for TSW 2020, but all these other sims I fancy looking into without plats. Nope, no way. It's not like a plat' dictates whether I play or not, I've played a few recently because they looked interesting, but if I have to invest quite a bit of time and effort into a game, I at least expect a plat' when I'm done
  19. But be sure that you have no active quests when you change the clock, because it will likely mess up the quest timer and turning back time could see them get stuck otherwise.
  20. Just in case people don't know this, it might be worth pointing out that you don't need to do the full service. You can complete a passenger service by 'hijacking it' at the end of the run. Basically, go into Timetable and select free play (your driver) and look for an incomplete service. This will give you the start/end station and departure time. There are a few websites online that will give you the arrival time for the final destination, so set the time to a few minutes just before the train is due in and set the final station. Wait for the train to arrive, jump into the driver's seat (it will ask if you want to take over the service) and in most cases once the passenger unload is finished you'll be awarded a completed service. This is how I got about 50% of services needed for WSR: West Country Wanderer. Had to drive a few full services, but having to rack up miles in certain trains this probably wasn't the best DLC to do this on. However, for the MSB/RNR/LIRR you can rack up service completions relatively quickly. Of course, you'll still need to drive 'turn arounds' because these don't have a timetable, but they're usually quite short anyway.
  21. If you bought this you'll find the Official Soundtrack CD actually has two additional tracks to those on the original (ha ha) release CD, but no track listing. After comparing the two I've concluded that the tracks are as follows: Tracks 1 to 36 same as the original CD (as listed on Bandcamp) Track 37: Track 31 The Orphan King with vocals. Track 38: Track 30 Ravik's Theme extended version
  22. I did get it thanks, but |I'm stuck on the FOUL trophies. It's so boring having to make the same response at the start and then slip up later on and have to repeat it all over again. Such a long story that has to be run through more than once anyway.
  23. Typical! Shortly after posting the above, I 'found' the lost vehicle. It seems I hadn't got to grips with the foibles of the garage. As I said, the map was showing that I should have had 4 vehicles, but one was not actually on the map nor in the garage, and Truck Storage was greyed out. Hm... Then I noticed that the slots images at the top was showing 3 solid and 2 empty circles. That seemed strange, so I looked in the Truck Store and discovered THREE trucks that I owned, all of which were not showing in Truck Storage. That;s when the penny dropped, STS. We all know that we can transfer trucks between maps by using the Retain option in the garage, but it seems that the garage needs us to do this to ensure they are made available in Truck Storage too, If I've sent the truck to the garage via the action area at the front, why would I need to do that? Anyhow, I used Retain on each of the trucks and then all three appeared in Truck Storage. That's seems inconsistent to me, since one of the trucks was showing as being on the map and the other two weren't.
  24. Sadly, my second truck has vanished and never reappeared. When I go to the world map, each region shows me how many vehicles are in that region. Supposedly I have 4 in the starter region in Michigan.Three are out in the field, but the missing one isn't showing on the map, so, in theory, it should be in the garage, right? But no. I've gone through 3 in-game days and at least one RL day, but no sign of it. I also know I haven't customised it, because it sat outside the garage for ages till I could fix it up and then I used it to get Broken Horse last thing at night. Once that popped I fixed the wheels & recovered it to the garage then Quit. Next day, not there. Worse case, it's gone forever, but I want to sell it for the money, because I'm using the KRS 58 "Bandit". This truck is excellent, but I can't yet fit All-terrain tyres, so it;s struggles in deep mud. Maybe it'll turn up some day.
