Train Simulator 2012 will be updated on Steam around 19:00 (UK time) on 8 February. This will be an automatic update for all TS2012 users as soon as you next go online.
We have worked hard to ensure that this is a trouble-free migration with full backwards compatibility - however, if you make content, make sure you have backed up before the upgrade starts. (See below for details of how to backup)
This update fixes a number of reported problems with TS2012 and should improve the performance for many of you.
We hope you will continue to enjoy Train Simulator 2012. Thanks from everybody at RailSimulator.com.
