    • Network synchronization for brake sounds, converters, and compressors.
  • These fixes will be released as patch 2024.1.2 in about 1-2 weeks.

Sceneries

Announcement from the Head of Constructors regarding sceneries removal: Sceneries where, among other issues, the signals had not been updated to new models, have been removed. It should be noted that the visibility of the old "dynamic" models was good as long as the day-night cycle was not implemented. The old semaphores do not "emit" light by default, so their visibility at night is poor, negatively affecting gameplay quality. The sceneries currently removed are: Falewo, Góra Włodowska, Testowo, Widawa, Psary, Sieniawka, Sroka, Grabów, Tarkowo, Chlorkowice, Wełtawa, Modlinków, Luzino, Gutkowo, and Kraśnica.

Additionally:
  • Robson - Nysowiec - resumed work on the scenery
  • Popio19 - Krasnystawek Fabryczny - resumed work on the scenery
  • Centuar1 - Dąbrówno - resumed work on the scenery
  • TrBleMaker - Okoń - refreshed version of the scenery passed the first stage in the SSS
  • Information from the forum or GitLab about adapting sceneries to the Byk version: Zielona Góra Główna, Wielichowo, Brzezinka Średzka, Krzęcz, Beznazwa, Mońki, Hel, Sierakówek, Minkowice, Łapanów.
