|Frage:||There is a railworks update via steam. What should I take care of?|
|Antwort:||If the rolling stock enhanced by us are updated via Steam, it's possible that the new soundscape and/or the new features won't work properly. In this case, you have to open the "Konfiguration" (start menu -> all programs -> TrainTeamBerlin -> BR143 Pluspack) and click on "Deaktivieren" and after it on "Aktivieren". Now our implementation is restored.|
|Frage:||I can't raise the pantograph of a PlusPack-loco but the machine is able to drive.|
|Antwort:||There was a Steam update for Train Simulator again. Please handle this situation like described in the first entry of this FAQ.|
|Frage:||I have bought a PlusPack and cannot find the scenarios for the route "Im Köblitzer Bergland". I have version 3 of the route.|
|Antwort:||Our scenarios are for the Köblitzer Bergland V1.2 if not labelled different. The 3rd version of the route was planned and announced as an update for the former versions. But at last it was published as new, independet route by Aerosoft. The scenarios can't be used with version 3 because of incompabilities. These are unregrettable circumstances that can't be changed by us...|
|Frage:||I have bought a PlusPack but it seems that not all engines of a class have the new functions and sounds. So the class 101 enignes of the addons "Munich-Augsburg" and "Hamburg-Hannover" are not updated. What is the problem?|
|Antwort:||Apart from that some addons were released after our PlusPacks, there are some stalwart reasons: we enhanced especially the engines of the "European Community Asset Pack". For technical and judical reasons it is not possible to change all available engines of one class. But we can commend our goodie catalogue - it lists many inofficial updates of users of the community - so that you can use some additional vehicles with the new features: Link to the goodie catalogue (German)|
