Hell Yea that's what's up! My line.JayJay I would gladly appreciate getting textures and data for you to save you or any others the hassle foe getting up here.I live in Bedford Park and take the (B) local to and from school everyday so I pretty much know and see everything from station to station north and S/B.I will also be helping Pacific with R-68 stuff also.Just let me know basically all of Concourse stations roofs are original and the same.I can start getting textures and data as early as Friday.Just let me know.

That would be appreciated.I offered JayJay help and he gave me the GO so I got the Bronx stations covered and I asked a friend can he help and he said he can get CPW but I thought the (D) can use the (C)'s objects since that's being redone but since you're in Brooklyn you can get some info on West End.

No, only the D goes to Coney Island. The B goes to Brighton Beach.
Oh, I see what you mean, but you need to write sentences better because I misunderstood that statement.
I think you mean to say the D goes to Coney Island and the B goes to Brighton Beach - which would be correct.

which one gets there faster?
It depends on where the starting point is.

Yes most likely since the original skeleton was built there.But there can be a re-route via Brighton also.Once the (Q) is done to Stillwell the (B) is basically done just the codes for switching need to be changed and terminal.
@JayJay: is this wall ok as for the lighting or is it too dark?

The D and the N are the fastest, station-wise the N reaches 4th avenue Express faster so it has the advantage

I can get everything along CPW (between 72nd - 116th) and all the information you need including signage, trash can placement, seats. I'll record a video walking the entire length of the station, so you can do all the calculating.

Also why dont you use the Bridge from the Q route and make it come over into atlantic and use the long statiopn line in the R late night shuttle?

I may have adressed this before. i may have not

I understand your concern with the highly detailed objects resulting in lowering your computer's performance but there's no way he can make it more "frame-rate friendly" without it looking like the older generation routes (unless he has hidden/unnecessary polygons which he can remove). This is because performance is directly correlated with the complexity of the models, textures, etc.

Higher quality models/textures = lower performance

Now I don't think you want the routes to always look the same (never improve) do you? The only way to solve your problem is to get a better/faster computer.
It's also not fair for the guys who has a faster computers to operate very undetailed routes.

The operating system has NOTHING to do with it. I had an XP computer, hated it, put Vista on it and it ran great. However, OpenBVE was a no go.

Post by: peacemak3r on March 22, 2011, 09:22:08 pm
Yeah, your operating system has nothing to do with the route's performance.  You need to probably update one or all of the following:  Video Card, RAM and/or processor.

Post by: coneyislandDFNQ on March 24, 2011, 03:13:03 pm
This is gonna be one detailed route.


By the way if the performance of your computer lags on this route, before opening openBVE, go to your Task Manager by pressing CTRL+Alt+Del. Then close some of the tasks running that eats up computer memory. The programs that stay open are the ones that has SYSTEM AND system32 next to it. Also the main process that stays open is explorer.exe. It helps on my other computer.

If you have a laptop you could put more RAM in it. If your using a desktop, you could upgrade whatever you wish, unless you have no knowledge whatsoever on upgrading hardware.
Actually, on certain laptop models you can upgrade the graphics card and CPU as well, but normally that is reserved for the higher end laptops.

On a desktops, you have to make sure one part isn't bottlenecking new parts. Also, your power supply has to be able to juice up new components, and your motherboard needs to be able to support all the new parts.

I'm going too be honest but it seems you rushed b\c the colors seem not right.Unless its my fone I'm on is displaying the colors wrong.I have 205th-174-175th walls but I have nothing to upload them to therefore I can't send them or post them b\c I don't have computer access.I'm not sure about south of 174 but I think someone was going to help me get walls along Concourse.But I have 174 to 205th.Over the days going and coming home from school I got several sound recordings of trains for people that's working on projects
Sounds for the R-32,46,68/A,142 & 142A.I even got some Charlie Pellet recordings.I have a lot on my memory card I wish I can get it up but I have no laptop now.My grandfather is adding memory and probably updating the system.But as soon as I get it back I'll let people know.

36th Street seems too bright, you should add the brightness command. Otherwise, nice work. If you can, Can you tell me before you release the route so I can figure how to spread my time over the 68 so I can release it (w/o exterior) when you release it?
Title: Re: Official Update Thread For The Southbound D Line
Post by: TJay1724 on March 28, 2011, 04:20:13 pm
The brightness command only applies to making the train cab lighter or darker. Has nothing to do with the stations or objects. In order to make the station objects darker, he would have to add dark color commands i.e. setcolor, 40,40,40 for example to EACH and EVERY object used for that station.

Hey JayJay. The 36th Street wall on the right in your screen was made by me YEARS ago when I was first starting out back in 02-04. All you have to do to make it a little darker is add a color command to the object file and make it darker. If you rather edit the bitmap itself, feel free to do so.  ;)

i will try to make 36 st walls little darker, but the textures to 36 Street are not mine

That's cool Jay. Don't think that <4> is insulting your work, he's just adding a little constructive criticism. I think the fact that you're blazing through the route is cool, but I think you should slow down a little. Some of these textures are old and compared to ones on current routes in development such as the (R) or the underground portion of the (4), would look less visually appealing. Don't worry about it Jay because we will cover everything that you need to make things photorealistic if you want. Those beams look pretty generic, and they can easily be replaced by photorealistic textures, which we can provide!

I sent JayJay some photo beams that I had made for the HL, but thought they could be used elsewhere, which is why you can find them on the F. In the case that he would need minor textures I'ma give him full permission to all of the objects and/or textures from the 4, which are capable of helping the D(I am well aware that the D is IND and the 4 is IRT).

I'm really loving the progress JayJay but I got a small off topic question. After the D is done are you going to do the B because its really short since the B and D are tthe same in the bronx and manhattan. Or are you going to do a collaboration of the B & Q? Other than that I admire your work keep at it!  ;D ;D ;D

"(D): Coney Island bound currently being under re-development by JayJay85 and Phantom909 most objects will be up to date similar to 4, F and R design textures. Release date around May 2011 other wise no definite release date."

Now, I am not trying to be rude, and I AM NOT rushing you.  I understand these things take time, and that there was never a definite release date.  However, May 2011 has come and gone.  Now again I AM NOT TRYING TO RUSH ANYBODY, but could you give us an update on how long it'll be?

Here in this vid I swapped out the audio.In the end the main reason was b\c there was a (B) train coming in on the N/B and they come in pretty fast which makes a lot of noise compared to other stations along the Concourse line mainly b\c of bad track.
NYC Subway: R-68A RFW (Bedford Park to 174th-175th St) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SC2gb2Zwiy4#)
Between 205th and 183rd it is no timers on the local and express.The timers are after the repeater signal on the local at 182nd.Then from Tremont to 167th its all clear and several timers between 167th and 161 I will probably make a vid soon.

Stations and the route look good Jay!

Few inconsistencies though:

-Bedford looks too good to be true lol. The real station looks like a complete dump like most of Grand Concourse, and features that dirty brown looking platform with those black spots all over.
-Bay 50th has those gates on the edges of the platform, not the standard black fence.

Critical Suggestions:
-TJays signals + timers
-More photo textures (colored beams from Val Stream and (F) folder)

Yeah, one thing I must say, is that in this day and time, you can't skimp on technology. It backfires. Make sure that the computer that you buy have the right specs,capable of running OpenBVE.

Are there going to be two versions of the southbound D? Regular service & Morning Rush Hour? Just curious is all lol ;D :o ::) ???

That's an interesting idea, since there are only three tracks along the Concourse. It would require a bit of coding, but I think it could work out.

yeah I think it would be much I mean it would be nice to see that happen to have two versions since we had two versions of the F train. But I'm glad this train is being done but I think the B and Q should be done together next afterwards and they would use the F and D folders.

There are normal signals in the folder, which is what I was leading to. They're all made with png textures though so it would be pointless in the end. Seems like we've hit a fork in the development road my friends, will JayJay take the Red Pill or the Blue pill? lol

TJay's Signals will be add later on
D Line Version 4.0 will have them.
Here is more updates on D and also the West end-36 St yard junction is now completed.

WOW. That is absolutely stunning! Amazing job jayjay I can't believe how great this looks!


The only inaccuracy I can spot is where the D line emerges from the tunnel after leaving the 4th avenue subway.
The track that joins the D line is in really bad condition, with the ballast covering the ties, and IDK whether it has a 3rd rail.
There is also the remnants of another track in between the D line and the street trackage joining the D line.

Here are the google earth coordinates of the area so you can see what I mean:
 4039'10.41"N
 74 0'19.61"W



Besides that, excellent work! It just gets better and better!

I agree, it was the same problem with the (A) Shuttle to Lefferts, and a bunch of other routes too. Just change the background to a daytime one to fix it.

Looks cool Jay. By the way, if you need Coney Island backdrops just holla. Would be a shame to not see the yard in its proper beauty.

By the way, is it possible for one of the versions to not include those yellow beams. On some older generation computers, they can hurt the frames.

Actually, according to the subway map, apparently 9th Avenue, 62nd Street, and Bay Parkway only serve as local stations, not express ones, but with their express platforms, it is still possible to create an express route past 36th Street and have it stop at those 3 stations as an express, so it would actually be kind of cool if we had that.

Actually you are not understanding what I was typing.  Let's review.

since all the stations in between are local stops only

If you were talking about the (D), this statement that YOU stated is false.  And in this case, anything past 36th or 59th per say (straight) to Coney Island, the (N) would be most logical.

You're thinking of the (N) past 59th Street.

I was stating your misconception of your previous STATED post.

Actually, according to the subway map, my statement was true

According to the subway map, your statement is FALSE. I bring up again that you STATED that all stops between 36th and Coney Island are local stops.  Which obviously is not true, (9 Avenue, 62nd Street, and Bay Parkway,) being the express stops.

even though 9th Avenue, 62nd Street and Bay Parkway have express platforms. But it is still possible to create an express route past 36th Street and have it stop at those 3 stations as an express

I never said it wasn't possible to create an express run from 36th to Coney Island.

Reading is a bit fundamental.

Reading is a bit fundamental.

So let me get this straight, if those 3 stations have express platforms, and my statement was "FALSE", then why are they indicated as Local Only on the subway map? You'd think that would mean that it would be unrealistic for express trains to stop at them, even though it actually IS realistic. It is that error on the subway map that confused me, and I am sorry for that. I just made a small, innocent mistake, that's all, and I KNOW that you never said that creating a route like that is not possible, I just brought up the fact that when creating it, we can use the 3 stations so the express past 36th street stops at them, so I was technically answering ErrorMacro11 as well as correcting myself, so to speak. And what does knowing/not knowing how to read have to do with my misconceptions anyway? I know how to read, and I read your post carefully, and I know that you thought I was talking about the (N), responding to the post where I made the mistake, then I tried to verify it. End of story, it's done, case solved.

Has is occurred to you that if they were listed as local stops, maybe because there is no express service on the West End?  Even if they were stated as a local stop on the subway maps, you'd assume with a screen name "Subway Train Operator," you'd definitely know that the West End has 3 express stops.

I know how to read, and I read your post carefully, and I know that you thought I was talking about the (N), responding to the post where I made the mistake, then I tried to verify it.

If you read my post and @Yankees post, you should have known you made the mistake and just left it like that or acknowledged it.  You didn't try to verify it, you went into a defensive aspect, pulling out subway maps and such to prove your point.

Okay, okay, now once again I just made a mistake, okay? And I knew I made the mistake once I saw YankeesPwnMets' post, I was not deliberately trying to defend myself, even though it looked like it. It is just that with the Local Service Only indicators for the stations, along with their express platforms, something just didn't add up to me. Also, I worded out my statements wrong, which made me sound like I was defending myself, even though I was just confused, so I am sorry for that confusion too. I edited my post about the 3 stations, for it to make more sense.

It's indicated local service at those stations because the (D) or (N) does not regularly(scheduled) make express stops at those stations via the Middle Track.
But the middle track does get used by re-routes,MOW trains or express use if in case there is a delay in service or congestion on the local(ie. sick passenger).

There is using our imagination if you think about it when the (D) is completely done to C.I the developers can extend the line via the (F) possibly to Bay Pkwy or even further by adding probably some commands in the coding for switching to the (F) track and copying and pasting from C.I and beyond adding distances to the (D) coding from the (F).

Christ, peacemak3r, could you loosen up a bit? I'm a fan of express/local routes and all that good stuff, but you have to realize that it's just a game, and you're not at liberty to jurisdict where the routes go and don't go.

Short answer is that even though they're express stations the D doesn't run express service. At one point the brown M used to terminate at Bay Parkway so that would have cut the express service in half.

I haven't tried the route yet but it sounds like it'll be fun. Keep up the good work, JayJay.

Let me ask you something. Do you really know who you're talking to? You backtalked to about three administrators already, and you clearly have no respect for people much older, and do a lot more than whatever it is, that you do. Because if you actually had a cent of respect in your body then you wouldn't have derailed the topic of someone whom I respect, and who's trying to show us something enlightening.

Or is it because you think you're a global moderator you run the site, and can talk to people how you feel like? And no, I will not put this in a PM because I do speak my mind on this site, and and saying this privately will not solve anything.

You could actually look at my posts before being a G.M. and I still spoke like this.

And for your information I've only talked back to ONE administrator and that was already dealt with.

Also, if my information serves me correctly, there is only 2 members on this site that is currently "older" then I am.

This may be a loong update for the s/b D but the Extension to Coney Island will soon be completed... Not as in 1, 2, 3 though... lol...
At First Stillwell was like this
(http://i1223.photobucket.com/albums/dd519/ARomedtbf/D2.png)

But Now here's an update!
(http://i1223.photobucket.com/albums/dd519/ARomedtbf/D3-1.png)

It's being worked on, but be advised there will be 2 versions: One with Actual Signals that will trip you if you fail to stop at the red signal: This is for OpenBVE
There will be a BVE2 Version that will have the wee ol' signals that is usually used in all the routes.
In addition, expect a detailed Coney Island Yard! This is also currenty being worked on!

Yes, we should forget about that stuff and just make it a part of the past. I have been noticing that this forum is giving itself a HORRIBLE reputation when it comes to public relations (And I also recently saw someone complaining about this forum on a few OpenBVE YouTube videos, but let that be a different story), so I think we should try to change that.



Anyway....Very nice start on Stillwell there. Glad to see some nice progress happening with the non-fictional routes, something that we all have been dreaming of ever since 2011 ;)

You think that it is bad here?  ;D

This is one of the best communities that I have ever seen.

Oh my God I almost died laughing. Join the NYCTF. Threxx has been so bad that he got warned, then banned, then he made an account to appeal his ban, which was against Forum rules. But the Administration is so good over there that they let him back in.

BVEStation in my mind has one of the best reps around when it comes to a community. NYCTF is not the worst but trust me, it is pretty low down there in the list, due to a heavy lack of moderation, and Administrators who do not enforce their rules enough.

I was talking about the arguments and shoot-downs, not the user behavior and rule-breaking. If you look around this forum, there are TONS of arguments that popped up here and there throughout it's history, and I have witnessed several times where the arguments got so out of hand that they caused the topic to be locked and/or the project to be cancelled, and this topic (With all that crap that happened between me and Peacemak3r on the last 2 or 3 pages) is no exception. I am pretty sure that there has to be at least 10 times that this kind of stuff has happened in BVEStation v5 alone. That's why I said that.



Anyway, like Mr. Even said, back on topic

Still heavily working on the tracks but still not even 20% Complete

(http://i1223.photobucket.com/albums/dd519/ARomedtbf/Stairs.png)

(http://i1223.photobucket.com/albums/dd519/ARomedtbf/Progress.png)

The 2nd Pic, there will be more added on to it, and for the route as a whole, I'm planning on replacing the Static Trains with realistic ones, that is trains without the trapezoid shape, etc.
Distances and signals will be also tweaked, and much more.

I will Lock this topic if you guys do not get back on topic.

Now some updates on the D from my part:

D is fully updated with R160 announcements
I am working on a version for the D to lefferts from 205 st via the A line south of 59 street

Brightness command/ and signals fully updated

Speed limit set for AI trains so they don't speed through timed sections

A D via West end express is in the works and one via conourse express is in the works. I will post more updates on that ones it nears completion.

The D will be released along side the updated a to lefferts and F v5. Hopefully By the time the December Holidays come.


Also, Fantastic work HayleyWilliamsFan!

Also gonna be pitching in, on this project. I'm going to try to replace as much elevated trackage and update the stations to make it look more uniform. If possible, we will also include some new background shots of the south Brooklyn area.

OH! We need those trippers on every real line! Great job!

And also, on 2.0, the (D) Concourse Express uses the local tracks. Is this going to be fixed?

Sounds great! This will be the most detailed and most sophisticated route ever released when all of these updates are added.

By the way, I noticed some discrepancies in the curves leading to the 3 track island stations on the West End El. The curves are way too tight. The curves should be more smooth because in real life, trains would have to slow down to 15 mph in those sections, which isn't realistic.

Btw, any info. on improvements regarding background scenery?

Ah! The (D), the second most recognized line in the system. No matter how it gets to Coney Island whether its via 4th and the West End line, the Culver line, (the (D) original route through Brooklyn to Coney Island), or the Brighton Line; etiher way it is one of the finest runs in the city period!

It should. The problem is, if there is no safety system coded inside the train.dat file. The train will not trip. Developers need to start coding safety systems and also using beacon commands in the route to make it fully realistic.
