Automated announcements and timers in action w4 to High st :
OpenBVE - 8th Ave Activity Pack + R160 Preview (A Line) [W4 to High st]

yes i know i posted it on youtube awhile ago but forgot to add it to this thread .

That's great, but it sounds awkward when the announcements have one background noise while the next one has another one, and therefore sound differently, instead of sounding exactly the same like in real life.

Actually, they fixed that error in one of the recent updates. Proof. Of course, we won't hear them anytime soon, so nobody can record the corrected announcements.  ::)

Thanks for letting me in on the update , if its fixed in the real version then i shall fix it on mine . Plus i might get lucky and find a nice T/O or Conductor that will play the announcement. But anyways ill post a 2006 and an updated 2011 version of the announcements.

So, if I am not mistaken, this route will have both an R160 version (with the automated announcements and the 2006 and 2011 versions like Mr Railfan mentioned) and a standard version with conductor-made (non-automated) announcements? And also, it will be the same as what is seen in Mr Railfan's videos (with the cab darkening and TJay's new signals) except it will have the new textures?

Yes i will be implementing the darkening , automated announcements and Tjays new signals [with a few custom made ones] after the new textures have been implemented by jayjay and Blue18 . Basically after they are done, they will send it to me so i can apply all of the signals , etc.  . Im also thinking of adding in a few weather themes like Rain , Fog , overcast sky and maybe snow.

Alright, that sounds good. But one thing I noticed in the videos is that in the train's Operating Screen, there is a route icon corresponding to what route you are driving that train on. Does that change depending on what you set the LED Route displays to?

That invloves putting in some key commands in the actual trainset and using the keys to change the sign.
