I have a lot of interest in the subway from back in the 70's... Believe me, I am really, and I mean REALLY looking forward to this A.

I don't intend to stop. But I do need some help from the community. I need pics of people taken out of photos from the 1970's for use in the route as people objects. If anyone is willing to help provide that or anything from the 1970's they feel may be relevant, please feel free.


BTW: [WARNING] This route is highly detailed and heavily textured. You need a pretty strong rig to run this route. A mid to high level graphics card is a must and a good processor as well. I apologize to those whom may not be able to run this route, but in order to ensure the feel of the 1970's and that vintage style, the heavy texturing was necessary. (On a straightaway with 2 tracks I am getting between 32 and 42 fps. With 4 tracks, 24-32 fps.  4 tracks at a station that is curved and detailed, 15-21.4 fps)

Yeah it is better to make it more detailed. In a few years mainstream computers should be able to run it with ease anyway. Just look at the original A line. I got 15 FPS at best on the computer I had when it came out. Last month when i got a chance to use BVE2 on a mainstream 2009 win XP computer i got a solid 40 FPS.

I've never had issues with routes, so I think I'll be ok... One question. Will this route have brightness commands?

Me too. When the original A came out, I got 12 fps!!! If most people get anywhere between 14-20 fps, there should'nt be any problems. No hitchs or anything. It should be smooth. And yes, there will be brightness commands throughout the entire route. They are already coded in for the section between 207th street and 190th street.

Our newer exteriors will also feature day and night modes, so it should look a little more interesting when entering/exiting stations.

Don't worry, TJay. Your routes are always the best , so I don't think there will be a need to tone it down any. Keep up the good work!
