NYCT 8 Line
« on: March 03, 2011, 04:23:09 pm »
I have resumed work on all 4 routes that I have had in development, one of them is the original 8 line from 149th Street to Gun Hill Road. The premise behind the line in development is that it's a fictional rendition of how the line would look if it was still operational today. This route was my 'guinea pig' of sorts, as I have used many of the techniques implemented in this line for other projects, most notably to create the timers in the Riverbank Park Shuttle. One feature exclusive to this route is the use of the random command. A retro version may eventually be made since I am using the skeletal data provided by Joe. The line is essentially 90% done to Tremont Ave, 2 stations need canopies and I have to finish adding signals. Screen shots will follow soon.
