Notes: The Kintetsu Nara Line is the model for vehicles, routes, diagrams, landscapes and railway facilities, but due to the specifications of the game, there are things that are different from real ones. As for the routes other than Kintetsu Nara Line, it is all fiction, and it has nothing to do with actual ones.

fabianb's comments:


Since I played ATS 2 a lot, I was really looking forward to this. The game is free with one IAP (all scenarios for around $11). Only the first scenario is free.

What is this game all about? This game is all about realism. It features a real life route with a busy schedule (with AI trains), working signals and speed limits and stuff like that. Questions? Ask them below!

So far just played the free scenario
I like the realism of it and locations
Cons are no camera views(that I know of anyways)
Archaic menu thats a bit odd
And graphics are not that great and thats the part Im struggling with I expected that to much better but maybe I am missing something in settings etc
Seems realistic and I dont mind the controls its the Graphics and only one view that I dont like

Yeah Im not sure if the graphics are kinda bugged. Since, for example, the railtrack looks much smoother in ATS 2 without that much distortion/pixellation. So I dunno if there simply is an issue with anti aliasing or something like that. Updates will tell I guess.

Yes ATS 2 looks much better however 3 is playing very well also, just wondering why sometimes messed up, like looking at the back of the train, very weird.
Anyone knows how to contact Takahiro Ito ??? want to talk with him about 3D and game improvements.
TIA

Nope he didnt answer my email, wasnt bounced either so I think its still valid. ATS3 has some disturbing issues, like you cant see the the values like track is level, - or + because he did draw somekind of cockpit? lines are hiding the values on top right. You can however see the values but then every time again you have to move the screen. Not pleasant driving. Back to ATS2 then Much better altough I never get in time on next stations
