How will the different modules work (Rail module, street module etc)

  • Considering the fact that you guys have decided to split your game into 3 modules (which need to be bought separately - ouch, my wallet), how is this going to work in regards of maps. Does that mean if for example I don't have Rail module, I can't play on map that supports both Rails and Buses?

    Or will I still be able to play the map, see AI trams driving, just not being able to drive the trams myself? Honestly I hope this is the case....

  • Hi,


    Simple question related to the modules.

    The current game cost 40 € because there is the base in + the rail module.


    But what will the price of the modules streets (bus) only? 40 € too? it does not seem logical since we paid today to have the module rail + the base of the game (editor, content tools etc)


    Waiting for your reply ;)

  • Hey


    (I speak English only for the understanding of all, if else, I would talking to you in French ;) )


    Yes, it is 40€ for the streets.

  • Hello,


    I really like the idea that the modules are split into three different categories - meaning you don't have to buy every single one if you don't like that particular mode of transport.


    I would also like to ask when can we approximately expect the Streets (Bus) Module? As this is my favourite mode of transport ^^


    Thanks

  • Heuliez :Thank you for your reply French colleague!


    But imagine that a person wants to buy only the bus module, it will still have the base of the game (editor + content tools)? Or is it imperative for him to have the rail module?

    I think, when a person buy the game (by default) + the module that's the person wants, he automatically get the Tools. :D

    Because Tools are a part of the "Kernel" of LOTUS ^^

  • Sounds unreasonable. Base game + rail should not be equal to only streets (since we already have the base game)

  • Heuliez : Ok thank you for your flashes, it's clear :D !

    In this case, I think that if a person already has the core of the game + the rail module, it would be better if the module streets (bus) is not 40 € ... a small discount seems more logical.

    I red that the developers don't want to lower the price after one module bought ;(


    EDIT : I found it. Just here

  • However, that seems illogical to me. Since the price of 40 € includes:

    LOTUS-Simulator Kernel and Content

    Module Rails of LOTUS (Trains module)

    Map Editor & Content Tool


    But if I want to buy the bus module later, it will not contain :

    LOTUS-Simulator Kernel and Content

    Module Streets of LOTUS (Bus module)

    Map Editor & Content Tool


    since I already have :

    LOTUS-Simulator Kernel and Content

    Map Editor & Content Tool


    so I do not understand why the price is set at 40 €. If the developers can enlighten me on this.
