Sounds great. A question; will Coney Island Stillwell also be created, or will the route just go from/up to 86th Street?

Stillwell will be done last because of Coney Island yard, notice the (D) is still terminating at Bay 50th st. C.I. Yard requires heavy work lol

Great a 57th bound (Q) and a Astoria bound (N) or vice-versa versions! Good Luck!

I would like to say that im officially also working on the Astoria bound N . Right now im collecting HQ announcements and recording a few manual ones so we can have a NTT and regular versions of the route . im also going to make sure there's a few short turns on the route incase you dont feel like playing the full route or you feel like playing/creating a GO like to 57st , times sq , queens plaza or to lex-59st . Im also going to include all announcements for these short turn . im also going to lay out the brightness effect and signaling into the route , so stay tuned for updates from the development crew.

Announcements should be the last thing it doesn't matter whether the announcements are manual or auto it can always be changed.There are plenty of people who could volunteer to get things if you don't have them(announcements) my point it shouldn't be the main priority at the moment.

Actually it is. In order to make it correct for the automated to play correctly with correct station times.

I will be overseeing the construction that ARome is doing along with JayJay85 and the rest of the BVEStation staff.

That's a minor coding issue. As long as the route file pulls up the correct announcement file, there's nothing to worry about. If there's something wrong with the route where the announcement doesn't play, all you need to do is either change the name of the announcement file or change the name in the route file. Regardless, there isn't a need for someone to get the recordings well before the route is under development.

That's just my opinion though.

It's true, in .csv files, you can change the coding to make the announcement play once the doors open and change the times last to suit the files

Ya and route viewer you obviously can roam the track and type in the announcement code at wherever location xxxx meters.
Announcements and static trains takes no time.

Not an opnion at all its a actual fact. But also the station time is important due to the fact when the doors open on the train we hear the announcement automatically play. So to make it realistic the station wait has to be adjusted.

Due to security reasons the development of the (N) will be halted until further notice
It will resume once the issues have been settled
