We have decided to put a bit more effort into the recording of the train system as we intend on putting Traverse up on Steam Greenlight soon and want to start building up a decent collection of videos.
So we have been busy tweaking foot alignment for characters and networking the train system. Almost finished, so hope to have something up soon.
Trains will be quite a bit faster than sprint speed. This should encourage players to travel by train. You can then use the the train stations for your focal points. Start placing quests, towns or PVP areas, markets etc.
