Track Building

Build the train sets of your childhood dreams with an easy-to-use editor. Just indicate where you want to build and Tracks does all the hard work for you, effortlessly mapping out turns, junctions and crossings under your command.

  • Add houses and trees to create your own little villages
  • Place unique track shapes and configurations beyond what you would normally find in a physical train sets
  • Physics objects to play with
  • Interactive mechanisms like bridges and lifts give you more freedom in moving around the environment
  • Play in free-mode to build at your leisure without any set objectives


Ride the rails

Once you’ve created your rail network, you can ride along from inside your train, in first person. You’ll have full control of your vehicle in this view and will be able to adjust the train’s speed and direction. Your train’s weight and momentum are simulated, challenging you to maintain a steady but efficient speed while transporting heavy cargo.

Objectives

Build your own train sets at will, or enjoy the set game modes which boast a variety of objectives for you to complete. For instance, Tracks challenges you to design a rail system that accommodates passengers’ commuting needs. Or transport cargo and build the most efficient rail network to complete objectives in the fastest time possible.

Environments

Varied environments await, acting as playgrounds in Tracks: The Train Set Game. Go off the rails, ride along the furniture, and bump into objects to activate them. Each environment contains unique features for you to experiment with and incorporate into your track designs.

Share

We are currently researching Steam Workshop support so players can share their tracks with other players online. We will update this section once we have a good idea of the functionality available after a few tests!

Tracks: The Train Set Game is everything the child in you has ever wanted. There are plenty of train games out there, but this is the only nostalgia-filled train simulator you’ll find on Steam.

Hello everybody!

The content in this update has been many months in the making and I'm so happy to be able to finally release it all. Multiple new features, new ways to play, new objects, and new languages! Plus of course the usual batch of fixes and polishing.

:HealUp: Trains are available in the Toy Box

You can now place a second, third, fourth.. as many trains as you like!

Once a second train has been placed, pressing T will open the new train menu.



Here you have access to options such as choosing which train to drive, adding carriages, customisation and starting points. This menu will eventually replace the carriages and start point objects in the toy box, though they are still there at the moment and will still only apply to the starting train. When you have only one train, holding T will now open the train menu instead of resetting the train.

This is a big milestone and a lot of different parts of the game have been tweaked and reworked to allow for more than one train. Many interactive objects have been temporarily moved to the experimental category due to big changes made so they would work with multiple trains. There is still a lot of work to be done on them so please report any issues in the forums!

:HealUp: Junction switch

Junction pieces can now be clicked when in build mode to automatically guide a train down that path. This is very useful with multiple trains since you no longer need to be driving a train to make it turn!



:HealUp: Tracks has been translated to:

  • German
  • Russian
  • Chinese (Simplified)

This is a first round of translations and my first time ever doing it as a developer so please excuse any mistakes you find! Reports in the forum of any issues/problems are greatly appreciated.
More languages are coming soon!

:HealUp: Carriages now match the style of the train they're attached to
Gingerbread carriages coming soon
