Review: PlusPak - CargoWaggon IGA for Rail Simulator
Developer: JustTrains, Publisher: Just Trains
Reviewed By Matthew Peddlesden
Date: 19 April 2009


Following up their IWB wagon release, JustTrains have extended their PlusPak range with the IGA Flat variant of the IWB wagon for Rail Simulator.

The wagon comes in 9 variants of loaded and unloaded with weathering, including:

  • Empty Lightly Weathered
  • Empty Heavily Weathered
  • Logs Load
  • Large Pipe Load
  • Small Pipes Load
  • Sawn Planks Load
  • Rails Load
  • Steel Rod Load
  • Steel Coils Load

Also included are four scenarios plus a free roam scenario that you can explore at your leisure.

The pack costs 5.88 from JustTrains and is a 12 megabyte download. As with all the JustTrains online releases it's protected by their DRM system - read the IWB review for a little more insight in to this and as always, read documentation and FAQ's online and be sure you're going to be happy with any limits placed on your use of your purchase.

There is a 22 page PDF manual installed as part of the setup process that gives you an overview of the wagons installed and also gives you a bit more insight in to how to run scenarios, use the various controls and just generally give you a quick start guide if you're not 100% sure how to do things. Even if you think you know what you're doing it's probably worth a quick read just to make sure there's nothing new in there that you hadn't figured out for yourself.

Overall the wagons are very high quality with superb finishing on the weathered variants. The loads are well implemented and no expense is spared on the poly counts giving the large tubes of the pipes ample poly's to actually look round. They have also implemented numerous 'Level of Detail' levels so that performance should not be affected as wagons get further way from view and/or you have packed yards.

As with all single item releases, whether it's actually worth the money to you is down to whether you think you'll get the usage out of the stock, if you do then I think these are excellent quality and will make a fine addition to your Rail Simulator.
