Can't you delay the trippers until the train is completely passed

I think trains have trippers on every car, so if the trippers go up after the first car then the second car will get tripped

I'm working on the R38 too. Right now 3D poles are being put in. It probably will be released with the Q.

Hopefully the poles won't be as framerate breaking as the ones on the R46.

This route looks amazing btw. I hope to see more routes updated with this attention to detail.

they won't be. The R38 is pretty frame rate friendly compared to the R46

Speaking on the topic of frame rates, i'm pretty sure the Q line will not be able to run on lower end computers. The amount of details through out the route will really bring FPS down on low end computers. DJ Hammers and I are trying our best to maximize performance, but once again, there's no guarantee it'll run on low end PCs.

What do you mean by "lower end?"  Like what specs would you expect the route to run smoothly on?

Anything that performs under an i3 processor and 4GB RAM or less. If you have an AMD A8 or Intel i5 you should be fine. As well as at least 4GB RAM.

A discrete graphics card (preferably NVIDIA) vs an integrated gpu is also recommended, although you may get by with mediocre frame rates running Intel HD 4000 or higher. Don't expect any sort of performance with an HD 3000 unit or below.

I've got just one word for that: damn!!!!

To expand on that, are we sure Mr Railfan and DJ Hammers aren't just passing off real pics as development progress? ;D Seriously though, the bridge looks real good.
