Be warned, though. Once the route uses TJay's signals it loses all BVE2/4 compatibility. But seeing as none of you care, never mind.  :P

I kinda like Bedford Park Blvd. being clean. NYCTBA is so much better than its counterpart.  ;D

.SigF is a BVE4 command so JayJay would just have to switch the folders around

The signals are assembled using ANIMATED files, which the previous versions of BVE do not support.

i guess its time to get a new computer for real then. thanks for letting me know Styles
Just don't buy the cheapest one you see in the store and don't buy a computer just because you think it looks good, or your might be disappointed again.

Yeah, one thing I must say, is that in this day and time, you can't skimp on technology. It backfires. Make sure that the computer that you buy have the right specs,capable of running OpenBVE.

Are there going to be two versions of the southbound D? Regular service & Morning Rush Hour? Just curious is all lol ;D :o ::) ???

That's an interesting idea, since there are only three tracks along the Concourse. It would require a bit of coding, but I think it could work out.

BStyles
yeah I think it would be much I mean it would be nice to see that happen to have two versions since we had two versions of the F train. But I'm glad this train is being done but I think the B and Q should be done together next afterwards and they would use the F and D folders.

There are normal signals in the folder, which is what I was leading to. They're all made with png textures though so it would be pointless in the end. Seems like we've hit a fork in the development road my friends, will JayJay take the Red Pill or the Blue pill? lol

LMAO! or maybe we can just notify the developer of the signals and maybe a solution can arise from this?

WOW. That is absolutely stunning! Amazing job jayjay I can't believe how great this looks!


The only inaccuracy I can spot is where the D line emerges from the tunnel after leaving the 4th avenue subway.
The track that joins the D line is in really bad condition, with the ballast covering the ties, and IDK whether it has a 3rd rail.
There is also the remnants of another track in between the D line and the street trackage joining the D line.

Here are the google earth coordinates of the area so you can see what I mean:
 4039'10.41"N
 74 0'19.61"W



Besides that, excellent work! It just gets better and better!

Yeah, I believe there is no 3rd rail from that railing coming out of 4th Ave.

Wow excellent work JayJay!  All it needs is some buildings.  I think you should stick with the daytime view, the objects look a bit too bright for it to be night time.

I agree, it was the same problem with the (A) Shuttle to Lefferts, and a bunch of other routes too. Just change the background to a daytime one to fix it.

Those West End/yard pictures are absolutely amazing, congratulations. Can't wait to drive an R38 through all this.



Glad to see my signage worked out for you!
