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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

The Scenery menu has new options for changing the look of your train:
Styles are currently saved and loaded within your track files. Let me know if you would prefer them to be in their own little category.
There is a checkbox to prevent your current style from being overwritten when loading a new save.
Improved Scenery controls
Fog Color has been replaced with Sky Color.
It works in a very similar way but now you can set the color of the sky (and fog) even with a very low Density value - no more default yellow when you want a clear day.
Lowering Fog Density now also changes how quickly it becomes thick, so slightly lower values can fade out far away objects while close ones remain clear.
If you load a save made in a previous version you might need to tweak the values a bit to get the same look that you had before.
Tracks now runs on the latest version of the Unreal Engine.
Upgrading can add new bugs (reports in the forum are appreciated) but keeping up-to-date is important for the long term health of the game, and the latest version includes some nice new features for me as the developer.
