Driver UI Mode

The Driver UI Mode buttons allow you to select if you are driving with Simple Controls or Realistic Controls, and to access the AI Command Bar.

Driver UI Underlay Toggle

Driver UI Underlay Toggle The Driver UI Underlay Toggle will turn a shaded underlay for the new Driver UI on or off. This may help provide some extra contrast to the UI in some situations.

Track Profile

The new Track Profile feature provides a brand new way to view the track ahead of you, showing you the grades ahead along with a variety of track features.

The features shown on the track profile can be customised by right-clicking on the track, and then selecting the features you would like to see.

You can also zoom in and out to show more, or less, of the track depending on the speed you're travelling at or the density of trackside objects ahead of you.
