I see quite a few things that could use some work. I am not nitpicking, albeit the route may be completed I see inaccuracies and basic things that can be improved that we are seeing with the development of the (4)(B)(Q) lines.

The Route was mostly finished back in 2013 thats one of the reasons, some of the objects came from the 4 line.
6 Line will be worked on again to add or change features to route that was added/change from 2013 to 2015 like station rehabs, other station modification to reflect the changes NYCT made, Around later this spring (around May 2015) when I get a new camera because my camera was stolen by one of the Railfanners at the UTC meeting, This is one of the reasons why 6 is getting release the way it's.

I understand that and respect everyone's work. It's just weird seeing
here more updates


when it is 2015 and it should look like:

I'm just pointing out the detail of objects as well as then and now. There can be improvements made based off what you showed us. (Not at all in a disrespectful way).

You do have a point.
Some stations do look it's 2015 (18 of 38 stations have been upgraded to 2014/15 textures standards).

Thanks for the clarification. And you don't have to release this to make us happy if you feel this could be better. Speaking for myself and some of the community I'm sure we would wait a few extra months or years for a fully finished product thats up to date instead of different versions. I believe we are seeing that with the (E),(4) and (7) routes in development. They have been in development for almost 7 years and I believe part of the reason is not the developers not having time but because the transition from BVE to OpenBVE as well as higher quality routes and photorealistic technology have plagued time. The (4) serves as an excellent example when it was first started half a decade ago it was using non-photo realistic stuff and over that time to now we've seen numerous changes from the station tile, to tracks, to elevators, and beams.

by the way I will be resume working on A line soon and will be one of most highly detail route similar routes like the (Q) and (4) lines.

Given the level of work and time required to update the route to the 4k textures and dgn-accurate object placement of the Q line, it would be best to have an interim release.

True and understandable. Thanks!

Hi,

Is there a less-detailed route of the 6 line that is available for download? Even though I have 100+ GB left on my hard drive, the route is still very slow. It's not the train file, I ran it with another route and it works fine. Maybe it's just my graphics card.

Thanks,

The (6) is a VERY high quality route, and requires a nice graphics card to run smoothly. Try turning down your settings if you haven't already. One source of lag is the animated trains present throughout the route. I know someone who made a version without the animated trains, but I don't know how to get my hands on it right now.
