I'm downloading it right now, thank you Fan Railer, also I heard that you shouldn't replace the Elevated folder because it will cause problems with the elevated section of the line or something like that, was this true? If it was, has it been fixed?

The issue's been fixed. You just need to download the 6thAve object folder from their website and install it.

I downloaded this when it was announced on Facebook, and I've gotten as far as 80th street.  No significant issues at all.   

A few minor questions:

Shouldn't there be GT/ST signs before those signals. Or is the "T" sufficient.

Should it be possible to encounter a Red/Lunar signal without first seeing a Yellow?

Thanks,

Ed

Technically, yes, before all timed sections, there should be GT/ST signs. If it just says T, normally it's a stand-in for GT, or it is a permanent ST that is always activated.

No, it is NOT possible to encounter a red timed signal without first seeing a yellow. If that crops up anywhere in this route, do let me know, although I think I was thorough enough to avoid that.

Mike I found 3 instances where this has occurred. Between 168th and 145th There's a green signal just prior to the first curve and on the other end is a timer. At the end of 86th st is a green, then followed by timers, then between Chambers and Fulton, there is a double green followed by timers. The signals in the  rest of the route looks good.

I'll take a look in a little bit.
EDIT: I have checked it out, and all of those locations that you mentioned should have the first red be a yellow. However there is not a signal available in this specific route that would clear from yellow to green if you approach it under the specified timed speed. I could still replace those should I find the time to do so.

Good news: I finally found time to fix the 3 aforementioned signals. Additionally, the next update will also include two sets of SMEE announcements and an NTT announcement set. Stay tuned =)

Showcasing updates made to both the A line to Far Rock and the R9. Several signals were fixed on the route, and two sets of SMEE announcements have been added. On the R9, several sounds were added (brake handle) and updated (whistle). Physics were also adjusted. You can download the updated A line here (remember to read the readme.txt file): http://www.mediafire.com/file/4azf7y2966jigd7/NYCT-A+Line+%28207th+St+to+Far+Rockaway%29+%5BRe-Signaled%5D.rar

Remember you must have downloaded the objects from the following link for this re-signaled route file to load properly:
http://openbveconnect.com//index.php?action=downloads;cat=15

Enjoy, and remember to visit the NYTM for openBVE weekends to check out exclusive unreleased content =)
