The key challenge in either of the other options was that all the level data would be tough to keep working through the transition and would result in a large amount of time when the game was unplayable. And ultimately we wouldn't be able to guarantee the same functionality as the original since the underlying systems had changed. The only other option would be to throw it all away and rebuild all the level scripting from scratch and we felt the chances of missing something in the gameplay experience would be too great.


For environments, our initial budgets were for the replace stage and covered vertices and textures. For vertices, our budgets were fairly light on increases in polygons as our artists found they could rebuild the models and with only a 10 to 30 per cent increase in geometry and improve them substantially. With textures, we have twice as many and a resolution higher for 4-16x the memory usage in some cases. The larger additions came from replacing 'kit-bashed' assets and enhancement phases where additional assets beyond what was in the original are created and placed. Finally, optimisation passes would be done that would trade grouping objects together into stitched similar assets for faster rendering. Characters in some cases like the Corpser doubled the vertices and had similar texture increases.


The level designers and artists were empowered to reimagine the lighting as they saw fit so long as the levels stayed within the performance restrictions. This enabled enhancements like you mention as well as light functions throughout the levels that allow lighting textures with colours in areas or around some fires.


We have put significant effort into making the Windows 10 version a showcase at 4K, geo and textures were re-authored with 4K in mind so the visual fidelity will really scale up on higher end hardware. We plan to uncap the frame-rate and will ship with a built-in benchmark mode. For anti-aliasing we'll support MSAA and FXAA.


Most non-Microsoft Train Simulator routes, activities and rolling stock make use of some Microsoft Train Simulator content, usually sound files, textures and cab interiors. If products designed for Microsoft Train Simulator are used on a PC with Open Rails but not Microsoft Train Simulator, then they are likely to work but some sounds and textures will be missing. Such files will be listed with warnings in the Open Rails log file.


  • Add-ons designed for Microsoft Train Simulator may rely on files from the Microsoft Train Simulator product. For instance: Routes provided with an Install.bat file that copies shapes and textures from the routes on the Microsoft Train Simulator CDs.

  • Locomotives that re-use cabviews or sounds from the locomotives on the Microsoft Train Simulator CDs (see folder TRAINSET).

  • Rolling stock that have sound management (SMS) files that refer to wave files from the Microsoft Train Simulator CDs (see folder SOUND).



The first community patch buffed certain gear and made things like Seraph crystals an auto pick up. With the second patch, the community started addressing the skill trees of the various vault hunters. This way under-performing skills got a small boost to make them viable for late game and provide new options for interesting builds. Since then balance changes have been made, new loot drop locations have been added, and new visual skins for certain weapons have been added. So if you want the ultimate Borderlands 2 experience check out the Borderlands 2 UCP. If you are looking for the ultimate Borderlands the Pre-Sequel experience than check out the BLTPS Community Patch.
