Rivet Games forums now on AppStores!


  • Rivet Games forums now on AppStores!

    To hopefully make it easier to engage with the Rivet Games Forums, there are now dedicated mobile apps available to download; just search for "Rivet Games" in either the Apple or Google Play stores on your phone or tablet.

    In order to keep your forum data as safe and secure as possible, they're hosted by dedicated third party forum software company vBulletin, who also provide the software for the apps. We're aware of some minor bugs in the apps (and plenty that we'd change) but can't because it's a standard tool. So apologies for any problems, we'll work with vBulletin to iron out any issues.

    If you do find the apps useful though, it would really help other users find them if you rated them - just open up the Rivet Games forum app in the AppStore and click on a star rating (preferably 5-star obviously, but that's your choice!).

    And of course feel free to follow us on whichever other social media you prefer:
    - Facebook;
    - YouTube;
    - Twitter;
    - Instagram;

      Some reflections from Suburban Glasgow creator Iain Mackay that other Train Simulator content developers may want to consider:
      · One of the requirements for creating a commercial route on Steam is to start working in a “Source” area instead of using pre-compiled assets pointing to several different providers. This also impacts on whether DRM (copy protection) can be implemented. When a route gets released, ideally it will only use one provider and product (i.e., its own)

    • Devblog: The Making of Sagliains - Engadine Line
      by Jasper_Rivet

      Deutsche Version weiter unten!


      This is Alex, one of the 3D environment artists at Rivet Games. I'm here to give you a brief insight into how we develop our stations. Our latest route, the Engadin Linie, allows us to present areas such as Sagliains (Rhaetian Railway station). Sagliains is a connecting station on the Bever–Scuol-Tarasp railway. It is located at 128.67km at 1432m above sea level at the exit from the Sagliains valley.
