Title: [1.5.0] Nightmare Pack #4
Post by: Logan on February 06, 2016, 09:31:59 AM

Think you have the fears of the last Nightmare Pack under control? Well, now you'll have to contend with another five fresh ones in 1.5.0!

So, what's in store for your train and its passengers?
Details for previous Nightmare Packs can be found on the forums (,24.0.html).

1.5.0 also comes with a new loss condition: Stranded. As of this update, the train starts with just three beacons. If you use them all and run out of both passengers and fuel, it's game over. Don't worry, if you prefer the old way of doing things, a new modifier is available that provides unlimited beacons.

For users with less powerful system configurations, we've added a low-quality lighting mode, which can be set in the Graphics options. This should provide a healthy framerate boost, at the expense of visual fidelity.

We've also tweaked a few balance dials behind the scenes. The biggest change is that engine upgrades now boost the train's speed. However, damaged carriages will slow you down. To help you keep track of these bonuses and penalties, a new card with all the information you need has been added to the route plotting notepad in the front cabin.

Next up, Fearless are now much more of a threat. If you happen to experience a fear attack in the same sector as a Fearless unit, your train's defences against that attack will be halved. All the more reason to give the Fearless a wide berth...

Finally, hungry passengers will last longer before perishing and upgrades at higher tiers now require more time to complete.

For the nitty-gritty of 1.5.0, check out the full changelog:
It is recommended you start a new game after updating, as saved games may not be compatible between versions.

Note to Mac OS X users: You will need to install Mono in order to run the update. The latest version of Mono for OS X can be downloaded here (
