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, and arriving at the terminus gives you 5 (on top of the other [up to] 5 points), However, overshooting the platform (passing the signal light) will get you a lower amount of points.
Dispatching trains is a secondary way to earn points. You can only dispatch trains if you have the rank dispatcher, Senior Dispatcher, Signaller, Senior Signaller or Mobile Operations Supervisors (not sure for Managers, Directors and [WDA]) You also 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 is 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.
In the future, this system is also planned to be used as a payment way for a public advertising system on the station billboards as stated in the SCR roadmap.
