Eisenbahn.exe Professional 9.0 is the next installment of the excellent series of railway simulators. Due to the subject matter taken up by the game, it will be appreciated mainly by fans of this type of games, but it can also appeal to people who have always dreamed of getting acquainted with the work of railwaymen "from the kitchen".
In their latest production, the creators focused on even greater realism of simulations - according to their assurances, designers, developers and other people involved in the Eisenbahn.exe project from the very beginning of its existence have spent over a million man-hours with it. Such dedication, as well as the experience gained with each new version of the simulator, resulted in over 3,650 original models of locomotives, wagons, cars, buses, planes, buildings or scenery elements, available during the creation of the dream "railway world". Locations created thanks to the game simply bustle with life, and a skilled eye will see such details as reflections of light in the water, sparks from steam locomotives, clouds of vapours floating over the depots or changes in weather conditions.
The most important change compared to the previous version is the improvement and optimization of the game engine, thanks to which the gameplay is smoother. Minor changes include improved undo/repeat changes while creating the world, one-click model replacement, the ability to customize the camera (including wide viewing angle and telephoto lens), a surface generator, crossover animation, and easier and faster creation of your own locations.
Of course, these are not all the novelties included in the latest version of Eisenbahn.exe. True railway enthusiasts will certainly be interested in the addition of the original signal book Deutschen Bahn AG (German version). The train running plan management model has also been improved, which can be changed both in real time and in time acceleration/slowdown mode. Changes can also be found in the signal, track and environment editor. The creators also included a package of additional models with a value of 10 Euro.
As with the previous part of the series, Eisenbahn.exe Professional 9.0 is available in two versions - basic and expert. The latter includes, among other things, optimization of the game engine for 64-bit systems, the ability to manually define camera settings for each train, more options when recording movies, a realistic collision detection system, the ability to define custom audio signals for all trains and a package of additional models with a value of 20 Euro.
