Hi ... what I mean as contemporary is the time we have spent on this earth and where we call home.  I find it very interesting.  Have you ever been to New York?

Do you use SketchUp, photoshop, or some other cad application to create your images,csv,b3d files. Also looking at your profile how is it that you have an interest in NYC subways given that time period you are modeling? I thought you were my contemporary (look at my profile).
I am a NYC Subway fan since I was a kid, after I discovered OpenBVE then downloaded old SMEEs trains, and started to learn the 1970s NYC subway system, I decided to develop 1970s routes by myself since I knew nobody will make some even though there is the 1969 Franklin Shuttle. I don't use sketchup at all, I only use Paint.net for textures, I learned modeling fast by fixing objects and understanding B3D and CSV coding. Yes, I learned a lot in less than a year and already know route building basics, some people learn slowly, some learn fast.
If you look at the first screenshots, you notice that I only did retexturing work, but then realized that I need to learn modeling.
And if you are wondering why I am a Conductor and you a New Recruit giving that I registered on BVE Station 2 years after you, is because here the ranking works on the amount of posts you make (from what I see, I'm not sure), but certainly not by time.

To thank you all for your support on my 1970s route project for OpenBVE, I decided to release a beta/demo of the 1973 A line from 207 St to Euclid Av via 8 Av & Fulton St express.
NOTE: Since it is a BETA, many stations aren't finished (missing stairways, turnstiles and closed exits...) so keep that in mind if you see something completely messed up.

Showcase of the full route authorized on Youtube as long as you put credits.

Modification of the route and objects is prohibited unless it is for your personal preferences and do not REDISTRIBUTE the route,
or unless it is for another project (1930s A line for example), you can of course take this BETA route and objects as a base.

Marker lights: Cab (Yellow) Opposite (Red)
Use 10 Car set consists
You can operate at high speed on CPW and Fulton St!

Object: (Put folder 1972A in Object folder) http://www.mediafire.com/file/z3adm4zcvec9fzj/1972A.rar
Route: (Put folder 1970s 8th Avenue & Rockaway routes in Route folder) http://www.mediafire.com/file/lx74mhd299t9kkd/1970s_8th_Avenue_%26_Rockaway_Routes.rar

My work now consists of images from Google Earth and Google Maps Street View to give more realistic surroundings and buildings. Also the reduction of detail from 500 feet to 250 feet on either side of track 0 delivers better performance.  There is no need to add detail that will most likely never be used. The use of TRACK.GROUND builds the surroundings and not much use of TRACK.FREEOBJ. I would like some feedback on this. This route mixes fact with fiction and starts from Tottenville on the current SI Railway line.  Currently the fiction is the reconfiguration of this route to subway standards such as signaling and longer stations.  Additionally fictional apartment buildings and commercial buildings will be placed at strategic points, most likely in sparse areas to give a more urban look to Staten Island, as it would have been had the subway been extended there.  The current aerial illustration has one fictional apartment house in the distance.  Further along the route there are expanses of empty land between the stations of Arthur Kill Road, Richmond Valley Road, and Pleasant Plains.  This area will be filled with high rise apartment houses and an overpass for Shore Front Drive, the proposed highway that would have cut across this area.  It is not out of the question that this fictional landscape would be a possibility had subways made it to Staten Island.

Check out the comparisons of the aerial views.


Old Aerial Shot (500 feet on either side of track 0, free hand drawing with some canned objects):



New Aerial Shot (250 feet on either side of track 0, Google Maps, street view, canned objects - has 75% to 90% less faces):

More than halfway to Arthur Kill Road and performance is good. How is it possible that FPS is 100? Also most of the surrounding scenery and objects are placed in ground objects built in SketchUp.  When I get to Arthur Kill Road I will try reversing the route using these ground objects.  Curves are tricky, but I have a method in mind to fractionally reduce or expand the size of the group in SketchUp containing the ground object depending upon the direction of the curve.

Thank you
