Train Conductor World: Tips for Successful Train Delivery

Below are tips on how to deliver trains better, get high scores and complete in-game objectives.

1. Act quickly and efficiently. There is no set number of trains per round. However, you have a time limit during which you must deliver as many trains as possible. The number of trains delivered depends on how efficiently you move them. Thus, the more efficiently you play, the more trains you will have per round.

Your efficiency depends on how quickly each train gets to the exit. The faster each train can leave, the more effective you will be at playing.

2. Watch your speed! How fast does the train depart? Did he stop or slow down along the way? For example, a fast train that is moving behind a slower train will have to slow down to match the pace of the slow train, which will mean it is delayed. This is how you lose the efficiency of a high-speed train.

When the train stops, your efficiency decreases. For example, if a train stops at a river bank waiting for you to make a transfer, it will lose its efficiency. Or, if you stop a train to avoid a derailment, the stopped train also loses efficiency.

Try to use stops wisely. Stop for the minimum amount of time and give priority to passing fast trains followed by slow trains.

3. Path length is very important. The length of the path the train takes to cross the level also plays an important role in your efficiency. In a level with perfectly horizontal tracks (like Gothenburg) you need to make as long diagonal connections as possible.

These long connections are faster than short vertical ones because they cover less area than horizontal ones, and then almost vertical ones to switch paths. However, such long transfers are dangerous, since the train cannot change direction during a transfer, it can only be stopped. So while long connections are generally faster, they are riskier.

4. Collect stars! Stars are very important for your points. If you collect more stars, the trains will move faster, more trains will appear on the screen at the same time, and more trains will also appear in total within the time limit. Every five stars increases your score multiplier. So more stars means (more trains x higher multiplier) = more points!

The train will lose a star if it stops for a long time. Stopping the train for more than 1.5 seconds causes the star to fall without being able to return. However, if you "hold" the train with your finger rather than pushing it, then you will have about 4 or 5 seconds before it loses its star.

When the road gets very crowded, you may have to hold several trains at the same time to stop them but keep all their stars.

5. Pay attention to the specifics of locations. Each location can teach you something new. For example, in Bernina the optimal path for every train is on inside track 1 after the turn, even if it is train 2 or 3. So sometimes you have to connect to the wrong track first and then correct it before exiting.

This also applies to other levels, even horizontal path levels. For example, if track 4 in London is too busy, you may need to move one or more trains to track 1 or 2 to avoid congestion. In most situations, it is better to keep trains moving than to stop them.

6. The best trains are long and fast. Your score per round is equal to the multiplier times the number of cars multiplied by 10. So if you get long trains with a lot of cars at the start of the round, they are worth very little. However, if you get two very long trains at the beginning of the round, then at the very end of the round you will hit the jackpot.

Slow trains at the beginning of the round mean bad luck. They take longer to travel and can also interfere with the passage of other trains. Additionally, each train occupies a "train on screen" slot, so slow trains prevent more (potentially faster) trains from appearing on screen.

You will be less likely to see a long train at the end of the round if you have multiple long trains at the beginning of the round (unless there is a special long train event in which you participate).

Train Conductor World: Guide for Beginners

How to choose difficulty? You can choose your difficulty in any location. On the map, select the difficulty level before pressing the play button. On the results screen, select the difficulty from the Stars tab. Some game tasks may require completion only on certain difficulties.

What is the meaning of stars? Each train you control has two items: a weight and a star. The star has a special value. If you get the train on the right track without stopping it for too long, you will receive a star. When you collect five stars, the game will become faster and your score multiplier will increase.

If you complete a level without losing any stars, you will unlock the next difficulty level for that level. Some levels can be very difficult and it may take you a while to complete them. Don’t worry, keep practicing and you will achieve your goal.

How to place tiles? You can place tiles by dragging them from the tile drawer onto the map. Wooden tiles can only be placed on grass. Iron tiles can be placed on grass and forest. Alloy tiles can be placed on grass, forest and water as bridges. You can’t use branches on the bridge - that would be strange.

How to build bridges? You can build bridges by placing alloy tiles on the water. To build a bridge, both sides of the track must touch acceptable ground. Once all the tiles have been placed from start to finish, you will be able to build a tile bridge. Branching alloy tiles cannot be used to build bridges. An overgrown network of bridges can become very cumbersome, and branch bridges will have to be destroyed immediately, which will not be very pleasant.

Please remember that the tiles used on the bridge cannot be repaired. Once you build a bridge, you will not be able to return the used parts if you destroy the bridge. Choose carefully.

How can I get achievements? Cities in your network have formed several special groups. They work together and want to have more direct access to each other. These groups want to be directly connected to each other in the most efficient organization possible. Each route forms a loop in your network. This creates a circular path between the cities along which they can trade.

For example, all the cities of Trench want to be connected to each other so that they can trade the fastest scooters. Connect the capital Paris with Lyon. Lyon then needs to connect with Verdon, and from Verdon with Marseille, where the land meets the sea. From there you’ll head back north, connecting Verdon to Millau and finally Millau back to Paris to complete the loop. If you can satisfy these demands, achievements await you.

How to download tiles? The Tile Trader allows you to upgrade five tiles of the same type into one tile of the next rarity. Five wooden tiles will turn into one iron tile, and five iron tiles will turn into one alloy tile. The tile merchant will give you a random tile in return. You can’t control which one you get, but you can increase your chances of getting the one you want!

When you first open the Merchant, you will notice a rotating display of tiles. These tiles are the choices available in this "trading session". If you don’t like the available tiles, you can exit the Trader menu and then open it again. This will reset the available selection. To have the best chance of getting the tiles you want, you should only trade when you see at least one tile you want among the selection.

How to play on the Chaos+ level? Each location has four difficulty levels: "Normal", "Difficult", "Chaos" and "Chaos+". The developers guarantee that you can get 100% stars and a star medal on the first three difficulties - "Normal", "Hard" and "Chaos", but not "Chaos+". The Chaos+ level replaces the standard Chaos level once unlocked. This means that there are always only three levels available to choose from, and you won’t be able to play standard Chaos once you unlock Chaos+.

The fourth level "Chaos+" is intended for playing on the leaderboard. It is basically impossible to get 100% stars in Chaos+. This is normal, this is how it should be. The reason it’s so hard is because if everyone could score 100%, then everyone would have roughly the same score and the leaderboards wouldn’t be very interesting. This level is made so difficult that you always have room for improvement.

How to get the right tile? Each tile you receive will go through a randomization process. This process determines the rarity of the tile, its orientation, and the direction in which it faces. The system is completely random and nothing in the game changes your odds, however, the game does have a mechanism that prevents players from constantly failing to obtain tiles.

If after several new tiles you still haven’t received the desired tile of a certain rarity, type or direction, then that will be the next one awarded to you. In the end you will always get the tile you need. If you haven’t had any luck so far, don’t worry! This simply means that you are getting closer and closer to the tile you want.

Train Conductor World: All about ports

What are ports (eg Rotterdam)? Ports are industrial centers that receive cargo sent from other cities in your network. The more cargo arrives there, the more you earn. When you connect a city (eg Bruges) to a port (eg Rotterdam), that city will start sending boxes to the port. If any city’s cargo hold becomes full, the city will stop sending cargo.

The ports have enough space for fifty boxes from each connected city until that connection is improved. In this case, it will be able to store up to seventy boxes. Each box costs one coin, which you will receive when you collect profits at each port. Upon receipt of the coins, the port will be emptied and any suspended shipments will resume again.

How many cities can be connected to the port? Each port can connect up to eight cities. There are currently six connection ports available on the map, giving you a total of 48 possible cargo bays to fill.

How are the boxes delivered? Each box delivery is sent on the back of a road train, which is visible on the map as it moves across your network. Tractor trains move on the tiles you lay. The time it takes a carrier to make each trip from a city to a port depends on how efficient, or in other words, direct, your connections are.

You can build long, winding connections or short, straight paths. You decide. But ports fill up faster if you have a short connection, and iron and alloy tracks make them even faster because tractor trains move faster on improved iron and alloy tiles.

The ports don’t send boxes to other ports, so those connections are lost. Cities also do not ship cargo boxes to other cities that are not ports.

Why do some cities not deliver cargo to ports? How to upgrade cargo compartments? Each port has eight cargo bays (also known as port slots). Initially, most of the cargo bays in each port are blocked. To unlock additional cargo bays, you need to improve the connection to the port using iron or, better yet, alloy tiles.

Each connection to an unlocked carb bay rewards one key, and when upgrading to a full 100% iron connection, you can receive an additional key or two additional keys for a full alloy connection. You can see the number of keys required to unlock additional cargo compartments by clicking on a port in edit mode.

Example: If you connect six cities to a port, but they are all wooden, or if wood is part of those six connections, then only a few nearby cities will deliver goods to the currently open cities. To unlock more cargo bays, upgrade connections to the first cities to Iron or Alloy.

Benefits of improvement. The upgraded connections not only deliver cargo faster because trains run faster on iron and alloys. Additionally, their cargo bay can accommodate more cargo before it becomes full. Thus, improved connections allow more cargo to be delivered faster.

In short: If a port starts with two cargo bays unlocked, you can earn 50 x 2 = 100 coins before it fills up. However, if you unlock all eight slots and fully upgrade them, you can earn 8 x 70 = 560 coins per port! With 6 fully upgraded ports, that’s 6 x 8 x 70 = 3360 coins each time you fill them up (about 12 hours).

Why does the time in ports change? The time indicated on the port label indicates how much longer it will take to completely fill the port, given how full it currently is. Each delivery takes a different amount of time because the communication routes between each city and port are different. The time until the port is full is actually the time it takes to receive all the cargo from the furthest city.

Improving routes between cities and ports will improve the time it takes to fill each port. You can improve routes by finding more direct paths that go through fewer tiles. You can also upgrade the tiles to higher quality tiles, such as Iron and Alloy. Iron tiles are 1.3 times faster or 30% faster than wood tiles. Alloy tiles are 1.6 times or 60% faster than wood tiles.

To connect more than four cities to each port, consider using branching iron or alloy tiles to connect two or more cities to the same side of the port.
