No Updated Content? Steam File Verify

In the unlikely event that Steam fails to update the Add-Ons listed in the article, you’ll need to perform a file verify and ensure Steam provisions your installation properly. Follow the instructions listed at this link to perform a file verify to reset your installation to default. Note that this process can take some time to complete and, if you have a high number of Add-Ons, we’d recommend you do this overnight.

If you find that after the file verify has completed, you are confident you have not received the update, please contact our Support Team by submitting a ticket to our support site where someone will assist you directly




  • Out of topic, but want to know can I run TS 2017 maxed out settings on Desktop AMD FX -Series 8GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 710- 2TB with 1GB dedicated graphics?

    • Your computer specification is above the minimum required. Please click here for further details.

  • I wish there was some way to fix the Steam workshop interface. Once you get down the list of routes they all blend together into an unreadable mess. Although on the flip side the way Steam assigns workshop contents to routes is so broken that most of them have zero items anyway. It’s such a shame this element is so poorly implemented.

    (I know it’s not your fault, but it’s frustrating for the end user to have finding content prove so cumbersome)

    • As mentioned above, We’re working separately with Valve to address the overlapping text issue (Steam Workshop filter list) and will update you when we have more news

  • What :O There was a ghost in train sim? I am scared now. I don’t like ghosts. Might have to call ghostbusters.

    • We already called them and they did a fabulous job – Train Simulator is now ghost free!
