[prMac.com] Calgary, Canada - Macgamestore.com today announced it has begun to take pre-orders for N3V Games' Traniz Simulator for the Mac. The game is sheduled to be released as a digital download later this month via Macgamestore.com.
Trainz Simulator Mac includes everything you need to build and operate your own dream railroad. You can build a fun layout in minutes, faithfully recreate a steam railroad from days gone by or develop a fully fledged 100 mile prototypical route; the choice is yours.
Drive - Steam, Diesel or Electric trains (and even trams, boats and cars)
Operate - a complete working rail line with interactive industries
Build - and customize your own living railroad
Share - your creations and your passion with other rail fans
New to Trainz Simulator Mac is the inclusion of SpeedTree. High Quality and detailed trees breathe new life into your routes and bring your worlds to life. Check out the tech video on the left for information on SpeedTree.
Included in the TS Mac Release will be several new routes for you to explore as well as improvements to routes you're all used to. These include:
* ECML Doncaster Peterborough

The Trainz interface has had a thorough overhaul, bringing a more friendly and intuitive interface to your screens. Along with the usability improvements, content creators can also create their own menu items for their routes and sessions.
New routes are available for you to drive with upgraded content specific to TS Mac and including SpeedTree throughout. Developed specifically to run in 'Native' mode, experience the best Trainz ever.
Support has been included to allow the creation of Seasonal Assets. Switch between different seasons and observe as the compatible objects change appearance.
Introducing a Layer tool similar to that found in many common graphics applications, you now have the ability to perform tasks that were impossible in previous versions of Trainz:
* Assign Objects to Layers
* Hide and Lock Layers
* Move Layers between Sessions and Routes enabling you to add any object to a session - not just trains. Want to include some new building types in a session? Or maybe a new section of track? Use the layer tool to achieve this.
All Modules Included
