    they are probably just following their first semester business school handbook on stirring some attention before launching the new website under a slightly different name. So in essence they are trolling

    I don't know, waiting years for tracks to be finished while knowing deep down that they'll probably never get finished... that's pretty dull.

    What happened to those 6 laser scanned tracks they promised this year? Did they ever release anything yet?

    Knowing their track record, it still impresses me that people were so willing to dish out money to them.

    and you see, I was at least partly right.

    Going by this facebook posts it seems like "they" somewhat threat us with leaving AC modding for good. Maybe it's just part of internal issues, like the modellers of all the "beta" tracks asking for more money, and Mister Simtraxx threatening them with "aha, watch out, or I stop working with you altogether!" in the form of that facebook post. Or the RIP post was that and they came to no agreement.
    Going by what we have seen of those guy(s) anything can happen, just bundled up in business speak. For all I know the entity that is Simtraxx, always speaking as "we", is a single guy managing and trying to profit from a group of modellers. And every upload in recent times, like the weirdly made Transfagarasan update, was just a straight pass through of whatever the modeller send to the manager, because he himself does no modelling or modding himself.

    Of course, all of this is just pure speculation on my part.

    ...and if all of this 'RIP Simtraxx' nonsense was just some clickbait attention-grab then I rather think it's backfired, because newsletter subscribers now seem to be sharing the track links with anyone who'll have them. I mean, if the project is dead then it's very hard to annoy a corpse, isn't it..?

    I posit that Simtraxx is both dead and alive and neither. Something akin to a Schrodinger's track modder I dare say! :roflmao::laugh::whistling:

    This appears to be some sort of LASER scanning taking place at Transfagarasan.. Hmmmmmm. I will gladly eat my words if Simtraxx releases a scanned version of Transfagarasan.

    Translation:

    And it is! One of the most famous roads in Europe scanned :) The task was not easy, because as in the mountains - the weather was sometimes capricious.

    I've got a feeling this saga will end up having more twists and turns than the Transfăgărășan Highway itself.
