Play in VR or on PC
Rolling Line has been built from the beginning to be both a PC game (first person style) and a VR game.
You can play with a keyboard a mouse just like any PC game or train sim, but if you have a VR headset (Oculus, Vive and WMR) connected then it will automatically launch in VR.
Just like a model railway
This railway is designed to look, feel and operate like a real hobbyists model railroad, with stylized switch boards to control the tracks, portable hand-held controllers to drive trains, and complete control over the rooms lighting.
Freely push wagons around on the rails with your hands to build up trains as long as you could possibly want, and take control of any number of different locomotives (using multiple controllers).
Build your own tracks and scenery
Place pieces of track and scenery to build your own huge (or tiny) railways!
Almost every tree and building from the pre-made layout can also be used in your own creations.
Paint different colors and styles onto terrain, trees and tracks and place chunks of terrain to build hills and path ways.
You can build your custom layouts entirely by hand in VR, or play on PC to make use of PC-only map making shortcuts.
You can share your layouts on the Steam workshop and easily download other peoples layouts.
All layouts you make can be easily backed up and shared in plain text, which means you can copy-paste an entire save game between friends!
Explore in human scale or miniature
Switch between human-sized room scale and railway-sized miniature scale at any time, any where. You are not limited to only driving trains in miniature, but can fully explore the entire railway at the scale of a person.
Drive trains from right inside the cab in miniature, and view the world from the driver’s perspective!
While in miniature scale you will experience dynamic time, weather and unique terrain and skyboxes that extend beyond the shape of the railway,
Choices of locomotion
Choose between a range of locomotion options, including standard teleporting, grabbing the world around you to move yourself around, free directional movement with the trackpad and any other locomotion options suggested by the community that can be added!
Other options like manual rotation (if you cannot use room scale) and setting your player height help support a range of VR setups.
Rolling line offers an immersive experience of both controlling a model railroad and driving trains from within the world itself. Whether you enjoy the diverse scenery of New Zealand, the joy of controlling model trains, the experience of a scenic railway journey or the freedom of building your own tracks and creations, then Rolling Line can deliver.
