The points system is the main currency in SCR and was introduced in The Big Update. It is mainly used to buy new trains, but can be also used to buy new routes.
How to Get Points
Here are the ways in which you will earn points.
Driving is the easiest way to get points, as you get up to 5 points for every station you stop at. However, if you overshoot the platform, you may get less points depending on how far you overshoot. Also, arriving at the terminus can give you up to 10 (the ordinary 5 or less, plus 5 bonus points).
Dispatching trains is a second way to earn points. You can only dispatch trains if you have the rank Dispatcher, Senior Dispatcher, Signaller, Senior Signaller or People Relations Advisor, with the abilities of the managers remaining unconfirmed. You can get 5 points for each train you dispatch, but failing to follow the correct procedures and rules will lead to a demotion from the Dispatcher rank.
Signalling can be a challenging work, however the V1.1.3 patch update implemented a system where Signallers can get points based on which desk they are working at. The payout is from 3 points/1 experience per minute on easy desks to 15 points/5 experience per minute on hardest desks. 15 points and 5 experience per minute is the most amount of points a SCR player can get in a minute.
Although riding trains may seem like a waste of time, if you ever notice, you actually get 1 point for each station you stop at.
Buying points is the only option where you can basically get points for doing nothing. If you locate your pointer under your points and experience, there will be a "Buy Points" button if you hover your mouse over it. Buying points cost Robux just like other Roblox games.
There are currently two different things you can spend your points on: trains and routes.
- Trains can cost anywhere from 300 points (Class 707) to 3000 points, with the most common amount being 1500. The free Class 357 is an exception.
- Routes can cost anywhere from 150 points (R012, although this route requires purchasing R011 first) to 600 points (R022).
- In the future, the user may be able to spend points to purchase advertisement slots on the billboards located at stations.
