Just made the full run... the route looks great! This is really great work, especially with the animated trains.

Will the manhattan part of the (4) and (5) be made from the existing (6) route or will new objects be made?

That's kind of an obvious question. Routes are being developed in certain directions since merging lines share the same objects. Notice how the (2)(3)(4)(5) are being developed from Brooklyn. As well as finished lines are going in one direction (A)(B)(C)(D), (F)(V).

Also creating the route in the opposite direction is possible, but it require the "flipping" of objects. Some objects can be placed the same way forwards as backwards (rail, platforms, some canopies/station beams) but others need to be rotated 180 in the code and placed accordingly to the correct positions (platform rooms, switches, etc.). This is why it is easy to code routes in one direction as noted (same the direction, same placement of objects), but slightly difficult in the opposite (basic objects are there, just in the different direction, basically starting from scratch).

The developers are working together (4) and (5) lines will be using same object older "Lexington" folder as the (6) lines uses.

@Ztraintobroad, you have 3 answers to your question + more information. I think mines was accidentally quoted since you had the question.
Also creating the route in the opposite direction is possible, but it require the "flipping" of objects. Some objects can be placed the same way forwards as backwards (rail, platforms, some canopies/station beams) but others need to be rotated 180 in the code and placed accordingly to the correct positions (platform rooms, switches, etc.).

It's all the same answer just worded differently.

Mr. Railfan, would you mind if I upgrade the City Hall Loop station with more detail?

As requested by JayJay85, here are the line maps for the current route options for the 6-line.


Manhattan-bound 6 local from Pelham Bay Park


Manhattan-bound 6 Pelham Express/Lexington Av Local


Manhattan-bound 6 local from Parkchester

A couple of things: 1) The dimensions are correct so they should be able to fit onto the 142/142A trains that are under development and/or available for download and 2) I'm aware the line maps are not exactly as they appear on the cars in real life; it was intentional.
