I just finished watching this video and I'm definitely very impressed! I've not yet installed it, so I'm going to do a few tests on different routes and time how long they take to load (like Alan did in the video) before installing it and testing again to see what impact it's had on my install. I suppose it's a good thing that I reinstalled Train Sim the other day so my loading times are better now than they were a while ago anyway.This looks superb, I had to check it wasn't the 1st April.
Basically it's a turbo loader for routes.
Below is a video about it.
There is also a link to the DTG website with specific instructions.
Ah yes - thanks for the reminder.Just remember when testing that it only applies to content inside .ap files. However, you can create your own .ap archives if you wish to take advantage of it.
|Type of scenario||Route||Stock||Time before adding update||Time after adding update|

|Standard||Western Mainlines (JT)||Class 50 + Mk2s (DTG)||7:27.93||06:01.75|
|Quick Drive||GWSR 'The Honeybourne Line' (SSS)||Class 101 (DTG)||06:42.80||04:27.61|
Thanks for the response @Inversnecky. My TS has been really stable (in TS terms) since I did a big re-install so I'm probably not using the best set-up to test the update as it's got less stuff on it than most installs will have I expect.I’m beginning to wonder about that too: have had a fair few crashes, always in the menu screens, never on the routes.
Computer freezes and I have to reboot: even doing that saves time!
