And had they delayed the release there would have been even more baloney flying around, as they know from past experience. So ... damned if you do, damned if you don't. In this case, RSC chose to release, and I think they chose correctly. Why? Because by doing so, they received both positive and negative feedback, some of the latter even offering useful suggestions, whereas had they decided to delay release they would have received two blasts of negativity: the first for not meeting their predicted release deadline, the second for errors -- both perceived and real.
Just one more quick comment: I've read both this and other RW-related forums since the first release of Rail Simulator and have observed that any
release of any
DLC or general update brings out the naysayers in force, especially those with absurd, angry, personal demands. I'm sick of them, so I can imagine how RSC feels. I'm not saying that all negative comments are bad, but one person wanting a left-handed-thread thingamajiggy on the whatchamacallit because he thinks he remembers having seen that feature when he was a lad doesn't invalidate the worth of the watchamacallit.
