Oouch!

Once upon a time I was RSderek on UKTS 2007-2012ish. For years I shared info and helped people on forums regarding RS and RWs, wrote blog posts, took on feedback and explained A, B and C and generally was nice and helpful... :)

To free myself from the weight of the name, I created a second account so I could discuss general subjects without the prejudiced.
However, a second (or third!) account was not allowed (I did not know or care to be honest) so it was closed fair play they said naughty boy and we all moved on. As if it really mattered. :)

Proctor and Billiam were my 2 UKTS aliases while I was RSderek too (they both seemed like very nice people! and I never bothered anywhere else seemed to much like hard work)

A number of years ago I closed the RSderek account too, after the night of 'the long knives' it was time to focus on WVR and get that bad boy finished.

So to repeat... TS20xx will be developed for a while yet across UK/US and Europe. (We will also be working on TSW and a number of other Sims)

Future of TS20xx?

TSW is coming soon... :)

However, I have read a few posts saying we will stop TS20xx production...
Not true at all.

I have said a few times DTG will be producing 1st party content for a few years yet.
Just planning the next 18 months right now. (locos and routes)

Thank you Otto for the times

I read today that Otto a very active member of the train sim community had died.
One thing is so very different from other companies and games.
We at DTG (RS.com and RSDL before it) are so very close to many of the life long simmers.

My thoughts are with his family and friends.

No one lasts forever.

dev tools

Read this out there on a forum:

'DTG and their tech staff who blog always deny their content is produced with anything other than the consumer tool-set, but sometimes you have to wonder...'

you do indeed have the same tools (and I have answered it before many times) and there is no need to wonder.
However, we have been working with the tool set for almost a decade every working day so we are rather good at it.
