Trainz/Trainz Driver

Trainz Driver, published and distributed in 2005 was an inexpensive Driver-mode only Windows version of the {{TRS2006}} Trainz Simulator product line. It is a partial product with some new payware routes, two routes with multiple sessions bundled as well with TRS2006, and meant primarily to give users a taste of the Trainz experience.

TRS2006 install with Surveyor Menu showing most of the content of the Trainz Driver release added in. Most Trainz versions before TS2012 allowed importation of prior version JA files, Trainz's CAB files containing built-in content. TS12 is more picky about which JA's it will allow, and it is not known as of this time whether Trainz Driver JAs would or could be successfully imported into TS12. At least one of the editor's TS2009 releases allowed their copying and association.

The product didn't contain Content Manager, any ability to download additional content, nor the Surveyor run time GUI, so consisted solely of the {{Railyard}} and {{Driver}} modules with the bundled software.

Notes, Footnotes & References edit

Config.txt files are endemic and ever present in Trainz assets, for no asset can be defined without this type of Computer Science container. The keyword-value_of_key pairing must always be kept in mind in editing or creating Trainz content. The TrainzBaseSpec contains values and containers which are most common in asset defining config.txt files.
