HL - The IND Flatbush Avenue Line
« on: December 31, 2010, 09:16:38 pm »
This is the new official update thread for the HL. For all of the old members who have been following regularly, then you should know of the progress of this line. As for new ones, the images will follow shortly.

Progress as of this post is as far as Garrison Avenue, while station information is as far as Division Avenue - Broadway. Credits also go out to Coneykidw8 and Lexington456 who have, and will be helping me with the progression of this line.

The Google Map for this line: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&gl=us&ptab=2&ie=UTF8&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=208926562033814987950.00048eec9ced9d37fa1f7

Route history:

This route has been in development since 2008 and this is the third version of this line. I originally had it running from The World Trade Center to West 145th Street in Manhattan, but I have long since lost that file in a computer crash.

The new line, now phase three, runs from Parkchester in the Bronx to the Kings Plaza Shopping Center in Mill Basin, Brooklyn. Local service does not follow down the Flatbush corridor; it instead serves the major terminals in the city and follows the old route path of the original HL back to the World Trade Center Transportation Hub.

The default trainset for this line will vary, and the overall route will strive to achieve 5th Generation visuals and full OpenBVE compatibility.

It's an impressive route you've created. I love the effort you put into this since you released your beta months ago.

This a very Impressive and Beautiful Route.
I have one question though,
Will this pass by Maspeth NY and possibly stop there?

The (9), (10) and (12) lines are in development by Lexington456.

I have no clue what the (11) line is. I just included it because it was written on the map.

Just to update the 9, 10, and 12 has been put on hold because the IRT 4 and 6 lines are being worked on which is also delayed.

These line will connects as soon as possible but for now lets patiently wait for this great route.  8)

The (9) (10) and (12) are in development by me, like Lance stated.

The (11) is the IRT route that is in development by BStyles

Like coneyislandDFNQ said, the (9) (10) and (12) are being delayed to work on the (4) and (6), but only the (6) is being delayed, not the (4). The (4) is being worked on by Styles and myself.

Yes, the FRT 11 Line and 12 Lines are available here: FRT 11 and 12 Lines

My 11 Line is in the preliminary stages, and may or may not start development. If it does, it will start development once the Brooklyn-Bound HL is nearing completion. The route map is here: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&gl=us&ie=UTF8&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=208926562033814987950.0004978fc9fb020a33f02

Thanks for the strip maps, Lance! They look amazing, but you left 47th Road out of the local stations. :o

Work will continue, starting from Astoria-Ditmars. I'm searching for some ideas for an IND wall for Grand Central Parkway.
