TANE SP3 Officially Released

By Tony_Hilliam, July 11 2018

Service Pack 3 Released

All Trainz A New Era owners can now update to the latest version. This update includes improvements to AI and Multiplayer and overall delivers more stability, better performance, and a range of bug fixes.

It also includes support for Raildriver controllers. Details of how to calibrate your controller can be found here.


To update to the latest version, simply start Trainz, ensure that online mode is enabled (if available), and the patch available prompt should appear automatically. The patch to SP3 is a small download (under 100MB) and takes a few minutes.

If the prompt does not appear, from the launcher, click Trainz Settings > Install > Change Stream and ensure that Public Stream is enabled.

On PC, if you still are not able to patch, we recommend that you run the Patch Installer.exe from your install folder.

On Mac, to find your installer, right click and "Show package contents" then Contents > Resources to find your Patch Installer.app.

There is also an option for Offline patches, and if you have any issues, you can redownload the digital edition from your MyTrainz account.
