Title: (WIP) Official Updated Thread for the (B) (D) and (N) Lines
Post by: Mr Railfan on January 11, 2013, 01:20:42 pm
NOTE: All further updates will be posted in the NYCTA Southern Division Thread: LINK (http://forums.bvestation.com/index.php?topic=2208.200)

Hello everyone, i apologize for my absence from the forum but as some of you may know i got into a car accident on new years day and have been hospitalized for the past two weeks and was released this morning. 

Now moving onto more important matters, i plan on releasing the (B) (D) and (N) lines sometime this weekend.

The updated (B) line will most likely be released this Saturday night and will feature some scenarios and some other goodies packaged in.

The (D) line will be released Sunday night and will run to Bay 50 Street from 205 Street, but will feature various other scenarios included such as short turn and updated signals.

 Finally, The Southbound (N) Line will be released Monday evening, and will feature the (N) line from Astoria to Bay 50 Street (Via the West  End - D line) along with some other scenarios, such as the (N) to 59 Street. Thank you for being patient and Happy New Years! I will post in this thread once a line has been released.

JayJay will probably release an updated Q to Coney Island which will feature a local. IDK when this will get done though.

I might include an updated (Q) to Brighton - via Atorial Local - Broadway/Brighton Express with the (N) Release. This will have timers and announcements in Queens/upper Manhattan.

Having a car accident is one of the worse things that can happen to someone. I hope you feel better soon, and don't end up having later effects like when I had mine. I still have hip problems ( 2 years now after having my 96 Suzuki Sidekick rear ended by a 2008 Silverado) Hope you get better soon!

This has something to do with the train file. Btw, which route (of the ones included) were you playing when this happened?

The leaning thing happened on the C made the train faster I was using the R160 and kept over shooting lol

So far I've only played the 10 car version of the C, SMEE version. I haven't been able to test whether the lean occurs on the B or other C routes

The previous version of the D goes to coney island, but the code causes your train to terminate at Bay 50th. If you keep driving, you can operate the skeleton segment to coney island anyway, or like me, if you know how to change the code, you can extend the operating gameplay to include coney island.

ok, just tried different trains on the C line. WOW! I tried both the R32 8-car and the R38. Very realistic as far as banking. If you dont follow the speed limits, LOOK OUT. I tried hauling a** into 59th street & almost lost it. If I didnt brake in time, the train would have definately flipped. Once again, Excellent routes, Bravo sir.

(sarcasm) "NO NO, when a route is scheduled to be released, it MUST be released on that day. Thats just teasing us. It's not right. I'm telling the Admins."

On a serious note, give the guy a break. I personally know what its like to recover from a car crash. Take care of yourself first. Releasing the B & C lines was fantastic and did not have to be released, but it was. Be thankful for that.

Here is the D line update. It features two routes, an NTT (automated announcements) and a Manual announcement (SMEE) version. Both routes run to Bay 50 Street via 6ave/Central park west Express, Concourse/west end Local. I will post a scenario pack sometime next week.


MAIN DOWNLOAD (Route, Sound folders)

http://www.mediafire.com/?aavaujfvoyk914t (http://www.mediafire.com/?aavaujfvoyk914t)

DEPENDENCIES (Objects folder)

Same as the (B) line dependencies, which was posted above.






This is a High quality route and you may experience lag on lower end computers. If there are any bugs, please tell me.
This route was originally released by JayJay85 and Phantom909. I have modified the route and added in signals (Mostly made by Tjay, and some custom timers by me) and added in automated announcements . (Big thanks to Imanuel, BrIaNMeRcY1022, Lance and Bveguy for contributions with announcements.)


The (N)(Q) (W) line(s) will be released next week if everything goes according to plan.

Awesome, thanks! Expect a Full Route up first thing in the morning guys :) Just a suggestion, for the Scenario pack release, you should add a scenario which features a West End express run. Just to give it variety. And not trying to be a prick, but is there any news on the Northbound D Line?

I know why. I'll have to repackage it tomorrow. If you want to fix it yourself, move the [D1] and [D7] Folders into the [6ave] folder which is located in the sound directory if you downloaded my recent (B) update. If you don't have the [6ave] folder, right click, create a new folder and rename it 6ave , then follow the earlier instructions.

This should fix it.

No, the old files are in the LisaRaye2 folder which is a dependency for the new (D) and (B). So you can delete the old (D), just keep the objects folder in place.

I have the answer to your question, it is two posts before yours...

Trains is a work in progress by Bstyles, Nyctrman puertorican88 myself and the rest of the bvestation development crew.
...There's your answer.

The (N) uses the newer textures from the LisaRaye2 folder and not the Broadway objects. (idk about the final version, but it was LisaRaye2 when I installed it).

Alright here's an update: I finished updating the Q and am now updating some static signals on the N line.

Here's what i got left: I have to add scenarios in - this might take an 30 to 60 minutes
and do a final run through to check for intrusive bugs. Should be ready tonight though.

And sorry if I'm annoying by constantly mentioning this, but as usual I will have a Full Route video up as soon as I can. Damn, when SubwayTrainOperator5 goes on his computer and sees an (N) Line video on his channel, he will probably set off fireworks from his balcony! Heh

Yea well i try and work on the lines when i can. It usually takes more than an hour to do the things to the line  and i don't have a lot of time available for bve anymore. Right now i'm trying to get the N and Q out but if it's not out in the next 30 minutes than it'll be out in the morning.

It's been uploaded.  DJ Hammers is posting it in the DL section as we speak. Big thanks to him for posting it for me. If you guys experience any bugs tell me so it can be fixed in a latter version. Please remember the routes are high quality, so expect lag on low end PC's. If you experience extreme lag try lowering your distance to 300M or less. You can also try running in windowed mode at 640x480 resolution.

Any Problems, please post here.

After running a few scenarios, I have a couple of my own suggestions:

*On the work train route, the automated announcements still run even though the train is supposed to go nonstop from Astoria to Bay 50th. In addition,
the speed limits are completely waived, and they should be reimplemented. The AI will do 75 MPH in the 60th street tube

*Add .brightness commands to the routes

*Make a Broadway Lcl version

*Fix the platform at 34th Street. Its too wide. If you take a train with an exterior, you can clearly see the platform go into the train

Thank you for the imput! I will fix the announcement bug and have an updated patch uploaded tomorrow.

As for the brightness command and AI limit, i will implement that into a future version that will feature weather scenarios and moving trains.

I will also fix the platform glitch at 34 st as well in the next update.

The N local via Whitehall is in the works, but i don't have a status of it yet.


If you find anymore bugs please tell me so i can fix em 8)

Oh, alright. If it's intentionally implemented then I understand. I thought it was a bit weird/unrealistic since the route is only about an hour long and the Astoria and West End lines take up quite a sizeable part of the route.

More bugs that I found:

- After Canal street moving towards the Bridge where that abandoned tunnel from Nassau merges onto the Broadway, you can see the sky through the floor. Not sure if this is apparent on all of the routes, but I saw it on the (W).

- (N) EXP on West End, at 62nd, it plays the local announcement vs the Bay Parkway announcement.

- (M) should stop at 8 Car.

Other than that, solid work!

Yep, those are timers. Just follow the posted speed (posted on yellow signs that say GT15, GT30 etc.) and you would be fine. Some are delayed or slowed like their real life counterparts.

Not sure if I'm missing something but I'm experiencing unfair speed limit penalties on the "B" line. If I enter a station doing anything above 15 I get the speed limit warning. Entering every station at that speed is unrealistic and the more I try to follow speed regulations, I'm increasingly late throughout the route. To add to this, there is a train in front of me (even though it says I'm late) in the Bronx slowing me down further and it reappears at Dekalb ave. I was under the assumption that I would run into train traffic if I was moving too fast and arriving early at stations.  At Dekalb ave the train ahead of me stopped at the end of the station and just sat there so I gave up. When I looked at the review, every stop I made had an overspeed penalty. Am I the only one experiencing this? I was playing the NTT version and operating the R46OpenBVE.

I have experienced the same problem but im not sure if  the developers r working on it @ the moment. There is a way 2 change the coding of the route so u don't get the over speed stuff but I don't know how 2 do tht.

I have installed LisaRaye2.exe with size 163 813 984 (file date December 25, 2012). Is any new version of this file or problem is elsewhere?

This.

The bugs should not be intrusive, as in effecting the gameplay, and you should be able to play it fine. The errors might be pointed at a static train, and you should just ignore em. I could iron them out but this take time and people wanted the route out ASAP.

Post by: YankeesPwnMets on January 29, 2013, 10:39:41 pm
Another suggestion for the work train route, I think you should implement a 25 km/h speed limit after the yellow signals in a station. Work trains usually don't bypass stations at a high rate of speed and forcing the train to slow down in the station with speed limits would be nice. Adding more reroute scenarios such as a Q or F via West End/Sea Beach would be nice as well

On the other hand, you might want to be a bit strict on who you choose to BETA test. I'm sure that some members who want nothing but to get the route early and leave. I don't think it was too long ago when new members began to beg on literally every topic for a BETA copy.

Apparently, the dark sky towards the end of the route on the West End line is supposed to be nighttime, as the sun has gone down as you drive from Astoria to Bay 50th. So I guess it is normal

I have been driving the N and Q routes from Astoria, and I found some things which I think are bugs:

On all of the stations on the Astoria Line, the exit stairs should be facing away from each other, not towards each other as they are in the route.
←]   [→, not [→   ←].

The Astoria Boulevard station has a shelter on the Manhattan-bound platform around the stair facing the south end of the platform.
It appears in this photo: 1172 (http://www.nycsubway.org/perl/show?1172)

There appears to be two signals too close together between Ditmars and Astoria Boulevard.

Two signals appear too close together on the middle track at Broadway.

The lower level platform at Queensboro Plaza (yes, the B is lower case, and the -ugh is omitted) is too far away from the curve. It should be closer to the GT15 sign. Remember that the east end of the lower level platform is actually below the diamond on the upper level.

The signal beyond Queensboro Plaza should be a home signal ( track.section 0;0;2, track.sigF [appropriate home signal object with bottom green];

The curves beyond QBP are not sharp enough.

The behavior of the timers on the ramp down to the portal doesn't feel right. They should behave, given the proper route selection, so that the train clears the aforementioned curves outside Queensboro, then allow the train to accelerate to about 35 or 40 by the time the train reaches the portal, then get close to 60 by the bottom of the tunnel.

The curves at both ends of 5th Avenue are not sharp enough.

Anyway, just my 5 cents.

The behavior of the timers on the ramp down to the portal doesn't feel right. They should behave, given the proper route selection, so that the train clears the aforementioned curves outside Queensboro, then allow the train to accelerate to about 35 or 40 by the time the train reaches the portal, then get close to 60 by the bottom of the tunnel.

The curves at both ends of 5th Avenue are not sharp enough.

Anyway, just my 5 cents.


Thank you for the input.

I will see what i can do about the stair and the shelter at Astoria blvd. The double signal problem has been fixed.
I did not code Queensboro plaza and it would take a complete overhall to fix it. Plus the stations could only be put at 25 meter intervals and not at like meter mark 18014, but rather rounded up to meter mark 18025.

The signal beyond Queensboro plaza is a automatic as depicted in the official track book.

"The behavior of the timers on the ramp down to the portal doesn't feel right.

This is where you are wrong. The signal information is taken from a track book and the signals clear at 15-20 mph all the way to the homeball before the portal. Remember the train merges with the (R) just after and often has to hold at the homeball for the (R) to cross infront. The timers are also set up so that you can not reach 60 mph. The last timer clears at 50 mph, although when timed properly you can hit 55-56 before the train starts slowing down from the uphill. Remember the signal Information is from a track book and not made up.

If the (E) Line FIND works but this one doesn't, it may have something to do with your computer specs, antivirus or something. After all this is a much higher quality route.

Title: (B) (D) and (N) Line Update. - UPDATES (2/17/13)
Post by: Mr Railfan on February 17, 2013, 03:32:26 pm
As promised, here is some news about the (B) Line. I am currently developing a Snow scenerio to the Current (B) Line. The next update to the B will feature Weather scenarios (Snow,Rain,Fog). The Next (B) line update will also feature:

Until then Here are some pics of progress:

Entering Prospect Park:

Slowly pulling into Prospect Park:

Looking out towards the snow storm (local Unused shuttle track is covered in snow)
(http://i.imgur.com/8qpA7HT.jpg)

Due to little adhesion wheel slip happens when accelerating too fast. The wheels are not getting enough traction from the rail and speedometer is showing 83 MPH due to slipping wheels.
(http://i.imgur.com/02BtgwX.jpg)

Sparks and Loss of power is also possible along the right of way.

More spark action (Note the unused track is covered in snow)

(http://i.imgur.com/UZA2RFX.jpg)


So far the route is updated up to Kings Highway. I will post more preview pics soon. I am also planning to add in a Adhesion train/De Icer Train Scenario with the route. And yes, the snow is falling thanks to the rain object from  ipaclansite!

DJ Hammers will also record a video for me showcasing the route once it is in pre-release stages so subscribe to his channel : http://www.youtube.com/user/djhammersbvestation (http://www.youtube.com/user/djhammersbvestation)


Till Next time...

Yes that is correct, If you put the train into Full power from a stationary position, the train will not accelerate as the wheels would be slipping.

Can you tell me how you put the Destination into the cab where it says Destination. Thanks.

I modify the Train panel in Photoshop and add in the route i want.

Excellent work! I LOVE the snow effect! In those screenshots, it looks like typical weather here in Calgary, hehe.

Also, at the Prospect Park station it looks from the screenshot that it is snowing in a tunnel, which should not happen. I'm assuming that will be fixed?

Yea it's not snowing in the tunnel don't worry. Although i am working on adding in light snow into the beginning/ends of tunnels. This way it simulates drifting snow.

Make sure you have version 1.4 or Higher of Openbve. The announcements use a .Flac extension that earlier versions of BVE can't read.
