All about the end game http://answers.railnation.cz/?view=answers&action=answer&aid=41&mostrequested#go2answer At Rail Nation you're going through six different eras After these six eras the mysterious end game starts City rankingAs soon as the six eras are finished the rankings are being recalculated... At Rail Nation you're going through six different eras. After these six eras the mysterious end game starts.

City ranking
As soon as the six eras are finished the rankings are being recalculated and a ranking of cities is being created. The top ten cities, who're developed the furthest are now in the process of being developed to a mega city. When there are multiple cities who have achieved the same development level, the city that reached this the first gets added to the mega cities list.

When the end game has started the first city will be changed into a mega city and the other cities will change accordingly during time and leveling. Do note that the list of runner up cities can change depending on whether how fast they level up. For example, the number three city can level up faster than the number two city and thus switching places before they are developed into a mega city.

Mega cities and goods
During the end game the mega city needs certain goods. Each mega city needs twelve goods simultaneously. When a specific good is filled the next one will be available.

Players and prestige bonus
The players and associations that deliver the highest amount of a specific good receive a very special prestige bonus.

How long is the end game?
The end game is finished when a mega city has received all of it's necesary goods. The end game has no specific time setting, it depends on how fast the players deliver. The final ranking is the ranking shown when the end game is finshed.

Additional information about the end game
There are no workers and events during the end game. You're also not able to sit an account during the end game.

When your city is a mega city you're not obligated to deliver the goods or participate in the end game. The normal game play is still available to you. By competing in the end game you're able to get a high amount of prestige though so keep that in mind. Due to this the end game can create big shifts in the ranking list. The number one might not be the number one anymore after the end game.

When the end game is finished the server will be closed for a couple of days. Do note that there's always a possibility of a delay when there are problems occuring. The accounts will be stored and you can join up for a new round. You can log in with your e-mail and choose a new avatar and city at the start. Any gold that was left on your old account will be available to you at the new round.

We wish you lots of fun and luck playing the end game of Rail Nation!

2. Next auctions. ( Here you can buy a license without auction or waiting for it to come to auction. You will have to pay the amount of gold shown, for example, 25 gold, and twice its price).
3.Number of Licences ( You can see the number of licenses available, in our case, there are six licenses, which means that six successful bidders can earn a license).

A couple of questions new players to the game ask frequently:

Can I delete tracks?
No, you can't delete old tracks. An option for this has been requested by many players though and has been forwarded to the developing team. Maybe this feature will be implemented in the future.

How do I set up a schedule?
Buy an engine and it will be waiting for you in the city. 
 



















Click on the engine and then choose 'schedule' in the menu that will pop up.

Choose the first stop, for example a coal mine, and click on it.

If you don't have waggons a small menu will pop up and you're able to buy waggons from there.

Then select a second stop to drop off the goods you're hauling, for example your city, and click on it. An then, confirm the schedule. Do note, not every industry is able to receive goods so you'll get an error if this is the case.


You can set up more then two stops (max. 9) in a schedule and make them as advanced as you wish.

Keep in mind multiple stops mean waitingtimes at each stop and engines need to accelerate before they're at their top speed again. So this might seem to make you a profit but with the wrong engines it won't.

Can I move to a different city?
No, you can only 'move' by laying down tracks to a new city and connect to it. Do note the game will not recognize this so at start up the game will load your first city and there is no function to select another to appear automatically when you enter. But you can use the "Center Map" button and choose the city (everytime you login) .An option for this has been requested by many players though and has been forwarded to the developing team. Maybe this feature will be implemented in the future.

Center Map Button

Can I do competitions in that new city?
Yes, if you connected that new city to the three surrounding industries (coal, wood and grain) the game will generate competitions. This can take up to 24 hours before the game will recognize this.

The tutorial says I need to do a certain amount of competitions but I already did them.
The game doesn't recognize previous competitions, so you have to do them again in order to pass this task.

The tutorial says I need to buy another engine (Swallow) but I researched newer engines already.
The game doesn't recognize a different engine than the one that is asked by the tutorial. In order to pass this task you have to buy the Swallow even though you're able to buy better engines.

The tutorial says I need to research a new engine (Raven) but I researched newer engines already because I started in a later era.
The game doesn't recognize a different engine than the one that is asked by the tutorial. Please contact support about this issue, a fix will be provided with a future update.

The tutorial gave me an engine but it's already 70% condition.
This has been done because you need to service the engine a couple of tasks later on in the tutorial. Because many players can play reasonably fast the engine doesn't have enough time to be low in condition. Servicing an engine that is still 98% is a waste of money so the engine that has been given to you has a 70% condition to prevent this.

I can't research a new engine.
To be able to research a new engine you need to have specific upgrades of the previous engine in order to get further up the research tree. Take a close look at the arrows to make sure you research the correct upgrade in order to continue the tree.

Can I turn off the sound or effects in the game or change my password?
Yes, go to the world map and at the top right of your screen next to the log out button, it's the Options button, you're able to edit your settings. The 'Profile' tab shows you the account options. Go to the 'General' tab and you will see the game options to turn on or off. At the right part of this menu you're able to turn on and off specific notifications (small pop up notifications on the left of the game) in game.

Upgrade Voucher
Upgrade vouchers are won by luck in lottery. The voucher can be used to get for free one upgrade for one of your trains. If you buy more upgrades for a train at once, and you have one voucher, the voucher will be used on the most expensive upgrade you want to buy.
