Bundle Stars launched the Trainz Bundle yesterday, which pack up Trainz Simulator 12 and eight DLC add-on packs for just $3.99. If you're a fan that's quite the deal, considering all this would normally add up to around $140.

Here's what you get:

The Trainz Bundle includes:
· Trainz Simulator 12
· SS4 China Coal Heavy Haul Pack DLC
· Nickel Plate High Speed Freight Set DLC
· BR Class 14 DLC
· Coronation Scot DLC
· Aerotrain DLC
· Blue Comet DLC
· The Duchess DLC

Trainz Simulator 12 lets you design and build your own railroads, then control various locomotives through towns, cities and countryside.

These packs and the main game can all be redeemed on Steam. The Trainz Bundle is apparently part of Bundle Stars' 'Simulator Week'. A huge swath of other simulation games are also currently available on the site.

I am very unclear on the appeal of these Simulator titles. I'm tempted to buy the pack just to try and work it out, but deeply suspect I'd be none the wiser.

Seriously, what kind of Mum's Basement Dwelling, Asperger's having, Social Reject Basket Case would buy this for $140?

That's prolly a bit harsh, but I seriously don't get it.

Hehe, some people like sports cars while others like trains :).
It's not exactly my thing either but I used to play transport tycoon back in the day and I quite liked it at the time.

There are people spending 1000$+ for a single starship in Star Citizen, when you like something you just do and if you can also afford that hobby then why not spoil yourself a bit.

Time to bookmark another store, thanks for the heads up.

Transport Tycoon you at least built an empire. There were finances and cargoes to consider. In this you plonk some tracks down so you can go driving your train.

On one of their other bundles they have "Warehouse and Logistics Simulator". Oh, ok, maybe there are charts and serious planning involved? ...or maybe you operate a few different forklifts to shift about some palettes.

BundleStars themselves are good. I've picked up a few good deals. This thing with hardcore simulation of the most mundane tasks is just bizarre. What next? Parking Tower Simulator, where you have to drive one of 4 different budget sedans around in circles at low speed until you find a parking spot? Don't worry, with DLC there's a dozen more equally unimpressive cars you can park, and two new car parks!

I have "Train Simulator 2014", which originally was "RailSim" and have to say that yes, I am one of those strange people who like simulators (not to the pointing of spending hundreds on them - just the basics).
It's a great price and,well if I did spend more than a casual hour every week or so on these titles I'd plump for it. However, I'd rather put the cash toward something else.

Still, I'm tempted......despite the shame it would bring from my son.

Having looked at it, no. I have the other title as I've said and that's enough. "Reboot 2.0" on the hand looks a good bundle.
