There is one in the current package.

In the full .7z file that can be downloaded from BVEStation, there are 10, 8, 6, 4, and 2 car versions of the R38.

Rollsigns can be changed using the commands listed in the train.txt to display the C line designation.

you can try looking at a C/++ for dummies book. That's pretty much all you need since the plugins pretty much use if/and/or statements to create events. Then you just compile it

A little update as a precursor for things to come:
Last weekend I spent ~6 hours in the subway recording some new sounds to replace the controller sounds with something a little more realistic. I also replaced a couple of other generic sounds. No graphics work has been done so far but I am going to start up on some work in the future. I also gathered some miscellaneous textures for the exterior.

I will be spending the next couple of my weekends gathering sounds and textures in the subway. It isn't fun, but this work will go a long way at improving the train.


That is all, a small update but the beginning of some nice things in the future!

Quick update:

I have been up all night working on sound improvements. You can now hear the click sound when the door indicator lights up. I also did some adjustments to some sounds that included things like fading and volume adjustment to make everything blend together better.


Are there any other suggestions for sound-related improvements? I'm going down to the city on Thursday for the better part of the day to get sounds and textures, so get your word in now.  ;)

the brake release sounds, the only play when the train is stopped. Do you think you could fix that?

I have sent in an updated version of the R38 to the BVEStation submissions email.
It isn't a large update, mostly QA/QC work and some sound and graphics tweaks.

However, the braking issues below 5 MPH have been fixed to the best of my ability.


I will implement new motor sounds from error46146 and Rikabs' R46 once it is released (both use the same 1257E1 GE motors). Animated trucks from the R46 will also be implemented.
So basically major progress on the R38 will remain at a standstill until the R46 is released.

Unfortunately because the R38 was retired by the time I had started developing it, getting a clear cab picture was and still is nearly impossible.

So I've gotten as close as possible to a photoreal cab, with 80% of it photo textures.

I don't mind the current cab, but I think it really needs a new controller, perhaps one taken from the R32 or something since their controllers are pretty much identical, that old R68-style controller that has been used for many years now just does not look right in an R38 cab

yeah i am looking for a new controller. Unlike car types still in service, it's really hard to find R38 cab textures that are usable and even controller textures in general.
