Review: Train Sim Activity Pack|

Train Sim Activity Pack is an expansion for Microsoft Train Simulator,
developed by LAGO and published in the UK by JustTrains (some may well
know them better by their well established JustFlight name).
Lago are well known in the Flight Simulation community for products
such as FS Traffic and FS Assist to name but two. Equally well,
JustFlight are well known for publishing some superb products.
Bearing that we have two fairly big names in Flight Simulation coming
together for this Train Simulation pack what can we expect?
I personally don't like reviews that tell you if you should go and
buy something or not and this review won't do that. As such it might
come off sounding perhaps a bit cold, though that is not the
intention. My aim is to present facts clearly and sprinkle the odd
opinion or commentary so that you can use your own judgement - after all,
we're all very different people and something that appeals to me might
be of no interest to you at all.
The Activity Pack contains 31 activities for Train Simulator making use
of all the existing locomotives, wagons and routes that came with
the game originally. One side benefit of this is that the amount of
disk space required is considerably lower than it would be with its
own routes or rolling stock included, making it ideal for users with lower end
spec machines that just want to drive trains and get the best out of their
original purchase of Train Simulator.
The review will be in three short parts.
||A discussion of the box, the manual and the overall presentation of the product.|
||What do you get, how do you use it and so forth.|
||This will be where you find the conclusions :)|
||A patch has just been released for one of the activities, more info...|
