Why don't we?
« on: May 07, 2011, 11:17:01 am »
I've been thinking about some stuff. Why don't we start making bus routes and buses for openbve? Once y'all done with the subway of course. As I'm nearing the end of all my (2) Projects, I'll be glad to.

That would be impractical to do with BVE as it is a train simulation not bus simulation.

The main reason being that, unlike trains, buses do not travel on fixed paths.

It is possible, but the bus would travel on a fixed route and it wouldn't be very fun. I suggest you try CBS, Bus Driver, or any game that's designed specifically for buses.

Like error said it would be mpractical to do with BVE as it is a train simulation not bus simulation. what you can do is create a trolley route since most of todays bus routes follow old trolley routes .

Or even better a light rail route ;)

idk I would like to see the 42nd street shuttle route redone with ridiculously high amounts of accuracy. Something like 90% photo textures, brightness commands, etc.

Just a project that isn't that large but can really showcase what the community can do.

I was actually planning to make a trainset for the HBLR, but then again nobody's doing a route so w/e lol

I'd love for the 42 St shuttle to be redone. It looks really bad on openbve.
