TML recently updated WoS 4 to Version 1.1.0. Several fixes include the addition of cab sway and adding more A.I. trains during rush hours. Enjoy the ride =)

Here's a few videos demonstrating the "Aggro mode":

I wish the missions weren't so ridiculous in this game. They're some that are realistic (ie. operating in snow while trying to stay on schedule,) but they're some that are just completely silly. Why would you transport a pregnant woman on a subway train when you can call an ambulance? What C/R would go alone into a pitch dark tunnel with a serial killer around? Who the hell would operate a train through an underwater tunnel after an earthquake when it's far safer to evacuate at the station? I would rather have missions such as a derailment leading to an evacuation, sudden power loss inside a tunnel, GOs due to construction, operating a rescue train to help a stalled train etc. The game is a good for anyone who just wants to operate the (7) line (especially considering the fact that the updated 7 is not available for openBVE yet), but the missions are absolute garbage.

I do agree that some the missions were ridiculous and unrealistic.  I do commend them on trying though.  I can definitely see where you are coming from.  Just looked at the price, the game is $34.99? Thats more than a DLC on Train Simulator 2015...  Judging by the latest screenshots and videos, I do like the exterior graphics of the neighborhoods on the elevated during the day, still hate the graphics underground though.  This game is definitely not on my wish list though.

For $34.99, I would consider buying the game if it included a large set of routes. For example, the entire Lexington Line with the entire 4, 5 and 6 lines, etc. Lines such as Lex or 7th Av would also allow for additional flexibility (ie. sending a 4 to Eastchester, 5 to Pelham, 5 via Lex Local, and so on and so forth) which would make the game much more entertaining. Just having the 7 line gets a little boring and makes the game completely overpriced. I already bought this game and probably would ask for a refund if Steam allowed me to. Buy this game when Steam puts it on sale for 10 bucks, but it is definitely not worth your 35 bucks. Put that towards your GTA V preorder or something else.
