We are tossing out all the rules when it comes to developing a new train simulator. It's time a sim was created to meet ALL of our needs.
You may be wondering why another train simulator... Well so far we have yet to find a single platform that does what we want and does it well. After 10 years in the industry we are pretty sure at this point it's safe to assume were not going to get what we want unless we build it ourselves. Who are we? Well most of us came from Jointed Rail Productions. Jointed Rail is the leading provider of third party content for N3V's TRAINZ Railroad simulator.
The next generation is here, and we're going to prove it.
Right now if you're a member of the train sim community we don't have to tell you there is a severe lack of a single platform that delivers. Heck even one that just works and looks good would be nice, but right now there is nothing that even comes close to a real soloution.
This is exactly why we have created Crosstie Studios, LLC. CTS has been formed to create the framework needed for the next generation in train simulation. There is no reason why in 2015 we should be OK with 1990's style graphics and features. We want prototypical, we want visual appeal, and we want working core systems that just do what they are supposed to do.
Unlike others who come to the table with nothing but dreams, we are coming to the community with a working demo to show you what's already been done. We want you to know this will be the largest train simulation project since the advent of MSTS.
It's 2015 and it's time our community caught up to the latest technology we all have come to love and expect in other games and simulations.
