Not spamming but a question is if the R68 going to be released to those whom have donated or it's gonna be a regular release for the mere future? I mean I can wait the R142A is amazing.
Title: Re: (WIP) Official Update Thread For The R68/R68A
Post by: tf51d on March 12, 2017, 11:48:58 am
I think it is for the donated, and a full release later in the month or year. The full released date is a TBA so we will see today hopefully when the full release date is.

"It will be easy for the person to change out configs, March 12 will be the offical first public release for the R68 ...no more beta releases that was way too stressful." (The Express/XD60)

Go to YouTube and type in r68 howling motor ... you're welcome. It's just when the motor is dying and has to be serviced soon.

That's the problem right there. It's only been two days. Take a step back and let at least a week or a month pass. As always, please wsit for the original author or development team to post updates. Speculation on the topic about progress is unproductive.

In my opinion, I'd suggest the WIP R68/A's should be available as a BETA to those who have donated in the GoFundMe for speeding up any sort of progress at hand. It's only fair.

I believe that was the plan, but as with the R142A, this model contained assets from another developer, that didn't allow to be publicly released, so he has to remove and replace all the affected objects in the model. Depending on how much was used, this could take time.

Ohh that's right. Maybe at least when it's at a BETA based phase to then release it to previous R142A BETA testers to better perfect the model is probably what I meant by all that. Especially after what has been happening like you mentioned.

So I have tested it on the A Line and I'm impressed by the detailed interior and everything, but the first that I really don't like is that, like the older R68 (with no interior), it's really unpowerful: I get about max 25mph only by climbing up a little slope, between 110th street to 96th street on the Central Park West Line, I can only reach high speeds on straight surfaces. Hopefully it will be fixed in the later uptades

This is mainly because openbve doesn't give the option to tell it to use 147hp to climb a hill. Only to tell it the weight of the train acceleration and max speed, with this you get more of a realistic feel with area that does not have hills but I am sure the 68s don't speed climb hills anyway with their weight.
Title: Re: (WIP) Official Update Thread For The R68/R68A
Post by: BadriveR142A on June 26, 2017, 10:02:19 am
Oh ok then, but if the R68 is a 75 ft car, the R46 should have about the same weight, I'm not sure, but the R46 can climb hills at 32-35mph, it's kind of upsetting because it makes me late, but nevermind. Also the run sounds are loud, but that's not a big problem I can change it for me, I'm saying just in case so you can fix these little sound problems in the next update.

This is great but i have a major issue: I Cant seem to load the train in  some of the routes, or even if it can barely load, it takes away some train textures and turn them white, this never happened before to me with any other train
Title: Re: (WIP) Official Update Thread For The R68/R68A
Post by: BadriveR142A on June 26, 2017, 04:39:55 pm
So after some little sound modifications, including a little howl in the motor for myself, I just love it!! Despite the weight thing but I'm getting used to. And I thought if you are planning to release a howling motor version later, you will be interested, TheExpress/XD60.
