Second part of a set of GPS route maps for Train Simulator 2017. Cologne – Dusseldorf.
I’ve started working on a new set of maps for Train Simulator 2017 users. These route trails are taken directly from the game’s GPS coordinates. Bristol to Exeter is the …

With 152 turns over 19.9km, the real-life world record for the Pikes Peak hillclimb course is a staggering 8:13 by Sebastien Loeb in 2013. Using the same car in Dirt Rally and after a lot of practice, I beat the record time by 9 seconds to come in at 8:04. Other people have done significantly better in-game, but I am very satisfied that I managed to get to this short a time. Below is the video of my run.
About 3 months back, I reinstalled Windows 10 as I was having issues launching some games and thought it might be DirectX dependencies conflicting or something else equally fiddly to remedy. I don’t make a habit of checking every game’s saves to see if they are backed up somewhere, but my games are installed on separate drives to Windows. I did a fresh install of Windows on an SSD I had cleared up and kept my old installation of Windows where it was, so I could go and grab files afterwards. A large portion of games now use either Steam cloud or their own online save system, which conveniently avoids losing progress and (sometimes) settings after a reinstall. I was somewhat surprised to find that Just Cause 3 doesn’t do this.
As a habit I keep my large library of games installed and track updates as they come in via Steam. I thought I had noticed something about it before on RockPaperShotgun.com, and sure enough today there was an “update” to Nosgoth. I checked the Steam news feed for the game and confirmed that it is closing down its servers today, ending the game.
- I wanted to see how it plays
- I hadn’t loaded it before
- I felt like playing something relaxing, not too intense
- It looked pretty
- I don’t care much about real golf at all, but computer golf can be fun
- I enjoyed the golf mini-game in GTAV, but it’s rather limited (one course) and not particularly authentic
