- Major improvements to steam physics

* Steam locos function more prototypically.
+ Locomotives can be left on standby with their resources being consumed
at a prototypical rate. The rates of coal, water and steam consumption have
been reduced when a loco is unattended.
+ In Cab Mode, consumption of coal, water and steam is more prototypical
during operation.
+ Top speeds have been checked against available prototypical data and
corrected for all steam engines.

- New cab interiors for Mallard and Flying Scotsman

* Based on research carried out at the National Railway Museum in York.
* Highly representative of Gresley's cab interior characteristics taking into
account changes over time.

- Loading & caching optimizations

* Layout's now load on average 10 to 30% faster.

- AI trains no longer prefer driving left [INLINE]

* Trains using the 'Drive' command previously always took the left route at
junctions where possible. Now they proceed through the junction without
changing it if the track ahead is clear. If the track ahead is blocked, a more
appropriate track will be chosen.

- Scenery objects animating correctly

* This includes objects such as windmills, balloons, etc.

- Scenario scripts can be encrypted using the supplied encryption program.

* This enables the protection of 3rd party script development.

- Individual Driver Orders can be deleted

* Simply hold control and click on any visible order to remove unwanted
instructions.

- Trainz Download Helper improvements (Lots of thanks to the Trainz Community
for their many suggestions)

* Trainz Download Helper now supports saving backup copies of CDP archives to
a path that you specify.
* Trainz Download Helper and the integrated Trainz Exchange supports resume
of downloads allowing you to continue installing after an interrupted download.
* Trainz Download Helper supports Ultimate Trainz Collection.

- Better handling of duplicate KUIDs

* When custom content is installed that duplicates Auran supplied TRS2004
content, TRS2004 will move the duplicate content to a 'removed content' folder.
* When multiple copies of the same custom content are installed, TRS2004 will
choose a single version of the content and ignore the others.

- Download Station Enhancements

* KUID2 formatted content can obsolete KUID formatted content.
* Uploaded Content can be set as invisible on the Download Station but able
to be downloaded via the Download Helper application.
* The following unpublicized Download Station enhancements are available now.
+ Content is available on the Download Station and downloadable via the
Trainz Download Helper.
+ Content can be linked to a third party website for downloading and is
downloadable via the Trainz Download Helper.

Please note
Re; Additional steam particle effects.
While we were hoping to include an improved particle effects system, this has
been delayed as we were not yet happy with the level of resources required to
run the system adequately.

Auran are comitted to continually improving and expanding the Trainz product
range and we shall endevour to include these improved and updated systems in
the near future. Please visit our website to check for further updates and new
products or downloads.

Choosing the right Service Pack

To check which build of TRS2004 you have, simply launch the program. Once in
the main menu look to the bottom right corner of your screen as illustrated in
the image below.

The number in the bracket, for example (Build 668) correlates with which
Service Pack 1 update you will need to install.
