Class 374 Eurostar Repaint

I have now uploaded the latest repaint to the DPSimulation website courtesy of Richard Fletcher.

A repaint of the DB ICE3 EMU, available on Steam, this repaint depicts the Class 374 in Eurostar livery which I believe will start operating out of St Pancras in December.

This repaint has been created specifically as AI traffic on the London to Faversham route, and possible around the St Pancras area on the upcoming London to Bedford route. Although the repaint is fully driveable, the pantograph currently does not raise when in player driven mode and is therefore released purely to populate these routes as AI.

This repaint can be downloaded from the EMU section of Richards page by clicking here.

South London Network - Scenario Pack Released

I am very pleased to announce the release of my latest scenario pack, SP11.

This scenario pack comprises of 8 scenarios, all based on the 'South London Network' route available from Steam. Set in 2013, the pack covers commuter operations and utilises the Class 377, Class 455, Class 465 & Class 395 'Javelin'. The scenarios offer varying and challenging operations and give over four and a half hours of further driving on this fantastic route along with realistic AI and plenty of interaction with other services to keep you on your toes.

Created using real timetables where appropriate and using correct stock diagrams, this scenario pack features the following in order to give an engaging and realistic experience.

Prototypical consists
Prototypical passing AI
Adverse Signals & AI Interaction
Challenging but achievable timetables
Utilises repaints originally created specifically for this pack

Several repaints recently released on DPSimulation were originally also created specifically for this pack and as ever, are completely free and standalone from this scenario pack and are available to download now.

This scenario pack is again priced at only £1.99, a price point which has been chosen to offer excellent value for money in order to help subsidise site costs at the ever expanding DPSimulation website. The pack can be viewed and purchased by following this link, which contains screenshots, a full list of requirements and a full description of each scenario in order to provide you with all the information needed before making a purchase.

This release has also been added to the [DPS-ALL] scenario pack, which allows users to purchase all current available packs in one go, for a lower price.

DPSimulation - Store Changes

In order to comply with the new EU Digital Tax regulations that came into force on 1st January 2015, certain countries will now have tax added to the total sum of their purchase, relevant to the current rate for their country. As 99% of our custom is from the UK, this will not affect the vast majority of our customers where this cost will be absorbed. In cases where this tax is applied, due to the low price of each pack, the impact should be minimal.

As with all decisions, this has been made in order maintain the DPSimulation site for the future, and to expand the site with further content. As ever, all proceeds from the sale of these packs will be used to fund this future development.

For any enquiries, please contact DPSimulation via this link.
