transport fever gets a new patch to improve performance

Transport Fever is a railroad­-focusing tycoon game for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Where players start in 1850 and consequently build up a thriving transport company. So as an emerging #transporttycoon, the player constructs stations, #airports, #harbours and makes money by connecting areas requiring transport services.

Due to developer Urban Games releasing a performance patch for Transport Fever. While details suggest there are more optimisations for Mac users, many of the improvements will affect Linux gamers as well.

Simulation, rendering and building performance have a significant improvement. Also, several user interface enhancements like e.g. a fluent mouse cursor or a save game progress bar make the game feel more responsive and fluent.

Some issues which occurred on specific Mac systems have been addressed. In particular, a random crash which happened after several minutes playing the game is solved now. Moreover, the terrain tool has been reworked, and several gameplay and simulation changes make the game more enjoyable. Also, quite a few small bugs and campaign issues have been solved.
