Train Sim 15

train-sim-15-sot-banner

Train Sim 15 brings you into the world of train simulation with a variety of game objectives and locales for miles of entertainment.

Launching the game brings you into the main menu, where you can access the two types of gameplay, People mode and Freight mode. In addition to picking your mode of play, the main screen includes access to your achievements, leaderboards, and shortcuts to like and share Train Sim on your favorite social networks.

Progressing through Train Sim 15 unlocks new trains to pilot and new locations to play in. In either game mode, you start out by picking a train, location, a time of day, and a weather condition.

The two modes of play have different objectives: in People mode, your main goal is to provide a comfortable train ride for passengers by maintaining speed within the limits and arriving at stations on time. In freight, the name of the game is speed management: too fast through the train stations or too slow in the country, and you won’t gain enough experience points to finish the level.

How to Backup your Samsung Galaxy S6

backup

We’ve all been there before: something terrible happens to our device (like taking a dive into the toilet, or fallen into a storm drain, or been the victim of a two year-old), and suddenly lose access to all of the data stored within. Losing treasured photos, videos, and other media can be heartbreaking. Luckily, there are ways to prevent losing that data completely. Check out how to backup and restore your Samsung Galaxy S6:

  • Open the Backup and reset menu in the Personal page of the Settings app.
  • Tap Backup Account. If you have not already done so, sign into a Google or Samsung account.
  • Switch the toggle next to Backup my data to the on position. Depending on which account you have signed into, your data will be regularly backed up to either Samsung’s or Google’s servers.
  • Switch the toggle next to Automatic restore to on. If at some point you lose the ability to use your device, signing into a new device will ask if you want to restore the new device to the same settings as your backed up device. This saves a lot of time in initial setup if you want to seamlessly switch to a new device.

Here’s how to change the default apps on your Samsung Galaxy S6:

  • To reset and change the default apps, open the Applications menu in the Device page of the Settings app.
  • Tap on Default Applications. Here you will see the current default apps.
  • Here you can change the default applications for the home screen launcher and Messages app.
  • For other default apps, you can tap Reset to reset the defaults for various actions that app is currently responsible for.
