For diesels I was thinking that you could do things like make the engine more durable by using heavier, better made steel parts and what not, or increasing displament on the engines to increase their power output.JanZeleny85 wrote:I was thinking about upgrading locomotives (bigger tender, better injector, faster sand pipe, stroker, etc) or as you mentioned retrofit some old one, but I would need to spend years studying it and it would also make the game more confusing. In Mashinky game, the player will have possibility to unlock new types of locomotives / wagons and the only way how to upgrade your train itself is to connect special wagons providing some bonus (dining car, crew car, sleeping car, second tender, etc). Plus there will be limited wagons / locomotives you can get from mini-quests.
Mods could add new types of locomotives / wagons as well as special locomotives / wagons for scripted miniquests.
It also may be nice if locomotives can be regeared or tuned to run at highier speeds to allow for fast freight or express passenger with some locomotives. I've always had a thing for passenger versions of heavy freight locomotives that bring the full power of a heavy duty locomotive and the speeds needed for commuter or express trains (128 Kph /80 MPH or more)
Well I guess thats kinda good for us players, it might also be nice if people can mod the game to enhance its graphics but I think Mashinky already looks very good and the only kind of graphical stuff I can maybe see being used are lighting and shading stuff like SweetFX. Though I'm not really one for that kinda stuff (I only Use ENBSeries with Fallout 4 to remove stutter and allocate more (SHared) VIdeo Ram to the game)JanZeleny85 wrote:Hardware specs is something I am still working on since I have older GPU than you do (GT 430, i3 2x3Ghz, 8GB) and I don't want to buy any newer to force me optimize it as much a I can But I will see how far can I go..
Same here, I can get GTA 5 to work with medium settings with minimal slow downs. I don't think I'm pulling a constant 60 FPS but some games like GTA 5 seem to run and look well so long as their pulling more then 30-40 FPSRedirect Left wrote:I have the same, other than an i5 Intel 3,5ghz. I find everything I've thrown at my rig works so far, even gta v runs at a decent fpsNekoMaster wrote: Also I hope the computer specs wont be too demanding, I only have a Phenom II x4 (3.4Ghz), 8GB of Ram and a GTX 570 Video card. Im finding a lot of new games are pushing my hardware or even not able to run on 2012-2013 vintage hardware.
Also I can sorta get Fallout 4 to work but that involves using Lower resolution textures, turning off many settings, and tweaking the Fallout 4 INI files to turn down even more effects and give the game more memory and processing power.
