Train smoke now gone?

Recommended Posts

Birdseye

The Train had rather unrealistic smoke belching out but after the recent patch there is no smoke at all. 

In the real world  particularly when a train pulls away from a stop the smoke comes from the chimney in time with the beat of the engine, i.e in puffs it doesn't belch out like a factory chimney at all times

So what happened to the the smoke? has the train suddenly gone electric  ?

It's just another downgrade. 

In real life a steam train barely smokes that much at all. 
But it is hella romantic to see it. 

I don't want absolute realism. I want romance. 
And RDR2 offered a lot. At least, on V1.00 and the day 1 patch. 
All after that made the game worse.

It's not a downgrade, it's a bug. Happens on PC right now, too.

Rockstar is really uncommunicative with the customers as to what is an unintentional bug vs what has been intentionally downgraded

I know, but this isn't an intentional. Just like the missing table at emerald ranch on both console and PC, is a bug, and not intentional.

People were complaining that it wasnt realistic enough so they turned it off.

Right. There's the other school of thought. So was it intentional or not? :panic:

Not intentional, it's glitched out at High and Ultra settings but not below that. Consoles use PC graphics settings internally to set their visuals so, if consoles use High (don't know if they do), it might be gone there too because of that.

To be honest, I rarely see trains. I went in PS for a while and saw trains frequently, but on PC they are rare (in occupied lobbies).

I am at work and will not be home until after the holidays 😞 So can anyone tell me if there is smoke from the trains on ps4-pro in 1.15? In any case, Merry Christmas and a happy new year guys and girls!

All you had to do was follow the damn train, CJ. I think they added smoke to the trains as an easter egg (Big Smoke) since they were aware of how viral this quote went.

Still missing on PC as of last night. Running med-high graphics though.. i dont know if that makes a difference. It was there before though and now it is not so something definitely changed.

Particle settings that are High or above will have this issue, drop them down to Medium and train smoke should reappear.

I saw that missing table the other day and wondered if it was just me.

Alright peeps so this smoke thing is still an issue for some people. Luckily i have found a fix (atleast for me it works).  set your particle quality to medium, anything above medium makes the smoke dissapear. hope this helps.
