Cayuga USA 0.7 (Beta Release)

Cayuga USA 0.7
Version: 0.7.4 Beta, Release: January 7th 2019







This is a fictional US State that would be located between Pennsylvania and New Jersey. In this map, you'll notice that most (if not all) of the routes here serve their own purpose, including (but not limited to) connecting a suburban town to the main city, or transporting the locals around their town.

Whether you want to drive a corner-to-corner urban route, a super limited BRT route, a long distance commuter express route, or even kick it into very low gear and do a park and ride shuttle, the Cayuga USA map has it all

Download here (as usual, you'll have to remember to select "load map without buses" before you load the map the first time in order for it to show up in the menu):
Download version 0.7.4 - Release January 7th 2019
Repaint pack (separate from the install package) is available here

Sceneryobjects
Splines


If you are upgrading from an older version, you MUST REPLACE all the files that come with this version, including repaints, hof files, etc, else you will encounter glitches and incompatible hofs, which I will NOT be supporting

Required maps are:
Cotterell
Buses of the Westcountry 2.9
Daytonford County,
Willshire,
Great Grundorf 2, and
DBC Chicago.


Vehicles needed for AI are (optional, as the map will still run without these):
New Flyer Powertrain Mod
Flxible Metro Series

If there are any issues, comment here.

Known issues:
-When installing this map, if you also have Liberty 0.2, the streets will become mix-matched.

So I am working on a new version of Cayuga USA here's a list of changes I made so far


- Fixed the traffic lights at Front-Market to the proper solid red/green lights. For some reason, I clucked up and managed to make them into left turn lights. Fail.


-Made all routes serve the waterfront museum before actually going into the Front-Market Terminus, it's basically an effort to make it easier to terminate on a schedule.


- Cut back routes 34 and 35 to 15th and Market, obvious reasons there.


- Created an obstacle on market street, similar to Philadelphia's City Hall, between 13th and 15th streets. Basically, all routes have to go around it now, and some routes will terminate there.


- Fixed the actual terminus point at Darrah peak so that one can terminate proper, and passengers get on and off




To-Do list:

- Add in a downtown Springfield
- add in local streets between Lakeland and Springfield/Greenville
- fill in more of Cayuga City
- Add in international airport in South Cayuga City
- add in South Cayuga City bus depot


THIS is the time to report bugs guys

Definitely looking forward to the update!

Would you by any chance consider making a limited stop service for the 30 route?

Nes.

I considered having a limited stop service from the  Waterfront to 19th, and have the 319 pick up from there for the rest of the trip.

But no full length limited stop route along Market.

So like. Here's some screenshots showing off the changes off Cayuga

First, South Cayuga Depot: (20th and Johnston Streets)






City Hall (Market Street between 13th and 15th Streets)







CCTA Directâ,,¢ Service
This is the branding for the CCTA Limited lines currently 301 and 319. Ignore the fact that one is on the 62.











I will make asecond post with just random scenes to show off the AI :)

The Cayuga City part of the map is now the biggest in terms of route diversity. Shortest CCTA route is 10-13 minutes long.

Random Scenes of Cayuga City:

21st Street and Johnston. Three buses, one of them a 17 lined up back to back


Buses sitting at Manayunk University. I added chrono so the Flxible is in the AI between 1992 and 2008.


Navy Pier pick up point. CCTA now wears advertising. You can see a Directâ,,¢bus coming up in the rear.

Hey Dash,

Not a bug, but some suggestions if you haven't done or planned them yet.

Have you ever considered doing an express bus route that runs along a commercial highway (like a U.S. 1 type roadway), then takes the express highway route to Cayuga City? I see signs for a 'Keystone City' in the map, maybe you could originate the highway there, have it run through Lakeland and Springfield, ending somewhere between the city line and Greenville, then when you're making the bus route, have it run to the city from Greenville.

Maybe a beach somewhere along the map?

You don't have to do all that now though. I'm just spitballing some ideas for you to take into consideration.

You're right in the sense that I should add that in, cause I've been considering both. I just don't know how to add sandy beaches.


The commercial highway thing is in the works. If you drive the Lakeland section of the map, like say doing the 215 towards National Park, if you turn right at the peak of the mountain instead of left, you can kinda see where I started to map it out.

Judging by Dash5155 new photo:

There will be a new 48 bus running from 26th-City to Front Market* or City Hall*
There will be a new 75 bus running from Wayne Station/Junction* to Front Market* or City Hall*

*=I am just assuming based off SEPTA routes.
