    I mean I like Trainz 12 and all, but I am NOT buying DLC for it. End of story.

    don't think the idea was to ever buy it all, just the ones that appeal. I recall this going on sale in the Steam summer sale for dead cheap

    You have no idea how much train enthusiasts may actually shell out for this.

    But yeah, paying over a grand in DLC and game is beyond reason to me

    Yeah, it was 99% off, for DLC of every single train track in the world.

    the most absurd things in all this is that some dlc are pricier than the game itself.
    It feels as if the "main game" is just an engine and you must purchase the content separately.

    Yeah, TS 12 had about the same amount of DLC. It's just ridiculous. I don't think 12 is even sold anymore on Steam.

    OFF DA RAILZZZZ

    The game's just changed names every year, it was railworks, then railworks 2 etc. everyone who owns it gets a free upgrade to the new engine. They seem to make their money selling DLC to actual train fanatics.

    It's a generally known fact that this game is the king of dlc.

    Train Simulator with DLC that costs more than a home console. I wonder if there was a single person who ended up buying all of those DLCs.
