I know I've been playing the other simulations too... I thought it was cool that they put the closed sign they used at dorney on the SF simulation page... lets hope its ready soon.

It's progressing. The actual simulation is being programmed by the guys at themagical.nl based on my input. They are building it with an updated programming language from their past simulations, so it is taking longer than expected to get running, but we are hoping to have it in testing soon. Glad to hear people are excited for it!

I have never done a simulation before, and I am excited for Steel Force! So what exactly do you control?

Head over to themagical.nl and play some of them to get a feel. The simulations on this site will not be identical, since Dorney's operations are very different from Disney's, but they can at least give you some idea of what to expect.

Already a lot of new option have been implemented, some info:

- control menu refresh
- new button routines
- added new sound events
- added sound control, separate sounds can be dis/enabled
- add and remove of a spare train works

We are close to a beta now, but there is still a lot to do. Will try to post a updated screen shot tonight!

Update: 2010-11-08 I added a screen shot of the current 'alpha build':

Steel Force Simulations Update: Progress continues 12.26.10

Recently via Twitter @themagical, there's still progress of the simulation but its been hard since under the weather of being sick and lack of free time due to work, family activities, and holiday celebrations.

We really appreciate your great patience with the team at Themagical and we are hoping to bring out the beta-ready preview.

Yes, its been a long time since you've heard anything from us. We understand how you feel as well too want you too to enjoy the hard work we've put into the game so far to this point.

It's great to hear the feedback of being testers and to see how the progress that you've seen back in November of this year.

Hang in there folks! We'll announce it when its "beta-quality" according to Themagical Team & Dorneyonline.com standards for public testing.

If you still want to be part of our beta-testing, we are still accepting people who haven't joined in the elite group of testers. Send an email: sdt@themagical.nl You'll get a special email from me to do what's next to fill the requirement to be a beta tester for the 'Steel Force Simulation'.
