Alright... to the people who downloaded the route, I hope you like it =). I want to let everybody know about the future of this route. The next step in development is the portion of the route from Jamaica. We already have a skeleton, but this will be a very tough route to develop, as we have to format the tracks and platforms of Penn Station, as well as all of the complicated trackage between the East River Tunnels and Jay Interlocking. So, as always, stay tuned and enjoy the new release =)

First of all, thank you. Everything is still in beta, and we are slowly adding in scenery and station detailing as the project progresses. Everything you mentioned will be included in the final version of the route, but for now, this is what we have =)

Just wanted to give a little update... Version 3.0 of the Hempstead Branch (Penn Station Bound) is in development and there is a skeleton completed to Penn Station. Because of the complexity of the track between Jamaica and Penn as well as the detail of Penn Station, the route may not be released for a little while, but know that the scenery is almost complete and all of the stations up to Woodside are almost complete and just require a little detailing. The next version will also include a bit more detail between Hempstead and Jamaica, but our main concern is getting it done to Penn Station. Version 4.0 will follow the release to Penn Station, and will be the fully detailed and accurate version of the route, and will mostly comprise of everything that makes the route more realistic, and will not come out for quite a while. In the meantime, stay tuned for more updates of the route to Penn Station =)

Hey guys =) . I hope everyone's enjoying the recent release to Atlantic Terminal. We are hard at work trying to extend and detail the portion of the route to Penn Station. Most of the scenery is done and all of the stations up to Woodside have a level of detail adequate enough for a beta release. The only things we want to pay attention to are putting in more signals, fixing track routing issues, and detailing all of the trackage after Woodside. We also want to make Penn Station look realistic. However, if it were to be fully detailed, there would be a couple dozen platforms and tracks, which would cause unbearable lag for some people. Stay tuned, as we are hoping for a release in the near future =)

This is AWESOME. If you add a little more detail to this route, everything would be 100% realistic!

Thanks!

Thanks! v4.0 won't be out for a while, considering it will require a few surveys of the route, a few textures collected, announcements recorded, and tons of objects to be created. I will keep everyone posted in the coming days and weeks about the upcoming release(s)

The route to Penn Station is almost complete. A few details need to be finalized and scenarios need to be created. Stay tuned.

EDIT: The scenarios are almost complete. Expect a release in the next couple of days.
