No problem. By the way, I can find you a good motor sound recording if you're still using the stock nycta motor sound. I can wait a few extra days and drive an R44 with a sound-realistic motor, if you haven't included it already.

The sounds I have were recorded by me and these are final for this project.  Thanks, anyway.

Wait...what I would need is the sound 2 train master inquired about in the old thread- "when the person wraps it up(max power) it hits that knob and makes a sound".  If you could help with that, that would be great!

Sorry bro, I have a list ready to email.  They were the ones that helped improving (and still are) the project.  Without them, this would not had been a decent R44 train.  And much thanks to JayJay for lending his interior/exterior, otherwise this would have been just a full cab view train to release. 

You will enjoy this train once it had been fixed, completed and publicly released.

Umm sorry dont have the recording its not serious though b\c it depends on the force the operator puts when wrapping the controller.

Look its called patience, when its released its released. There is no "exact" release dates on projects, Its up to the developer if its ready or not.

can you give a estimate like a month and what are SMEE s again i forgot
15yrs or so.

ha...


Really good work Zerobeats!

Damn zerobeats thats an amazing job! I love what you did to the panel!
By the way you can use the controller sounds from the R38 if you ask Rayvon for permission.


When will it be released????
When the author is done with it. BVE content takes GARGANTUAN amounts of work to create, in fact I really doubt that most people can realistically fathom the massive amounts of time and work required to create these payware-quality addons for the public to use for free. Because of this, it is hard for authors to give realistic release dates.

When wrapping up the controller you just hear the brakes release theres no sound to the controller except when applying a good amount of force to wrap the train up and when the MC is released its a pop sound and the train will be in full service or dumped.But that can be recorded on the 46's.

Smooth23 and Shawn1995:
As zerobeats mentioned on pitor160's post, the BETA testers were predetermined and will not change. Furthermore, he will not be accepting any other BETA testers.

That looks really good man!! One thing I want to point out that I see missing is the lightup enablers on the dashboard.They should be like a dim yellowish color.When the button is pressed by the T/O the light goes out when the doors are closed and locked it goes back yellow.But some R-44's had it kind of like a bluish/green.

So, those should have some light in them?  I can fix that before sending this out.  Thanks for pointing that out!
Yea its basically the indication for when the doors are locked/open on the side of the train.Its obvious which side opens which side though.Is it possible you can delay the door openings.Most or all the R-44's take a while to get the doors open b\c the enabler is/was very old so it was like a 2sec delay.
And I never seen that "locked" indication lit up before just the enablers.
Not my pic:

Notice like I said before some were like a blusih/green and some were like a dirty/dim yellow.Doesn't matter to me but its your train your choice.

That looks alot like the cob down here in Philly for our Broad St. Subway
