Quote from: trimet9401fan on October 20, 2019, 07:03:37 pm@Dash5155 does this mod include the Luminator Horizon front and rear sign font? I seen it used on a YT video of someone demoing New John City 0.8 map... thanks so much!!
The font is the same as the default Chicago Citybus font.

Quote from: 707_Knowah on October 19, 2019, 11:19:43 pmeverytime I drive in like the first 5 minutes the map crashes. Is there a way to fix that @Dash5155
I need a log file and maybe your PC specs. It could depend on a lot of factors honestly.

Please supply a log file or perform a test with map tools and show the results
So apparently 3295 arrived earlier than expected, meaning there may be an early departure for the remaining 56xx buses.

to recap:

  • 3000-3295 or 296 buses have arrived to SEPTA.
  • 295 Older D40LF/DE40LF buses were retired from service which are covered in great detail here
  • The first batch of the 2020 fleet aka the fleet currently arriving will be assigned to Midvale Depot
Hey everyone,

So for those of you who have joined up on VTC from a video seen on "DashTransit," this thread is where you can discuss suggestions and where-to next on the Channel. This is also where I will post about updates be it future videos or planned lack of videos.

As of right now, the following videos are planned for release over the next week:

Buses at Whitman Plaza

Full Philly PHLASH Ride

Also, in 2020, (as the 10-year anniversary of uploads to the channel) will be focusing on revisiting/recreating videos made in 2010. With that being said a lot of these locations will not be visited for the remainder of 2019. So with that being said, the following videos are planned to be done January 2020:

63rd Street Station MFL
Fern Rock (although this video WAS done in 2019)
Huntingdon Station MFL
Spring Garden Station MFL
Temple University

NJ Transit
Washington Township Garage
Trenton Transit Center
Philadelphia: 6th Street

MTA New York
Metro North: 125th St. Station/Harlem
Metro North: Marble Hill
New York City Transit/MTA Bus: 149th St (6) Line Station (Bronx)

PATCO Lindenwold Line FULL Ride
Downtown Philadelphia (with several nods to the Downtown 1999 video)
A Clip Show Featuring one clip from every year (to be named/themed later but likely Downtown Philadelphia)

As stated, any suggestions feel free to comment

Quote from: Nicholas Gaming Videos on October 12, 2019, 10:46:06 pmI have a problem; when I try to download something, I get no response from the site.  This is something new and also a problem I had on my laptop
I just did a test download and all was well with it. I did it on my computer, on my phone via wifi, and on my phone via mobile data, and yes all three worked.

I'm not saying you're wrong though because for about 2 months no one could connect to the site via mobile and I too was unable to connect to it.

All I can say is try another device until eventually, I can recreate the issue. However a big site change will be coming early next year so hopefully, that will fix your problem in the long run.

Woosah, woosah. I take it these are your first addon maps at aren't DLC? Don't worry your problems are normal. First things first have you gone through the standard trouble shooting steps?

If not, follow this thread to make sure you have everything:

If you do have everything, and your map still isn't working, reply with a log file.


If you're missing stuff, reply with the list of missing objects so that I can tell you where to get them.
Website News / Website Overhaul Coming!
October 10, 2019, 12:53:36 pm
So as a heads up, sometime in Q1 2020 the site ( will go down for about a week or two for a massive overhaul. Only the multimedia gallery will remain unaffected by this, but you will be unable to log in. Exact dates will come closer to the holidays, but as of right now it's looking like January.

The things that will change so far is the following:
  • Instead of the forum, the home page will be a homegrown homepage consisting of content from this group, a custom twitter feed, and youtube content
  • A content management system will be implemented which will allow for new IRL transit rosters to be added to the site.
  • The downloads page will be separated from the forums, and be better organized within. All the mods and similar content on the current downloads page will be moved to the new.
  • The "upload a download" functionality will not be ported over. Instead, downloads will come from a list of supporting posts in the forums/community.
  • The forums will be completely overhauled to feature a community-based setup instead of the category-based setup. This way when you first come onto the forum, you will see the most recent posts first instead of a list of categories, and the ability to add new topics will be added to the forum home page.
There will be more coming, but these are the only things set in stone. Again when the time comes, I will update on an actual date on this overhaul process.

For those still donating towards the Cayuga WIP update map, please specify what you're donating for. It's just more helpful if you do so as it keeps things organized.

1901 and 1906 have entered service! Wowza!

Remember how funny this is when you wake up in a body bag tomorrow :)
While they are still not in revenue service, 5632 has been reassigned to Victory, and 5636 has been reassigned to Frontier.

This gives merit to the idea that this year's holiday buses will be the 56xx series buses, as 5682 was re-assigned to Allegheny.  None of these three depots have any other 56xx buses so it makes sense.

Quote from: MillerRichard1 on October 01, 2019, 10:29:32 pm- There's the bus stop that reads, "Darradale Train Yard" was announced as "Darradale Rail Yard" May not mean much but little details matter :)
That's not a bug report, that's a nitpick.

Quote from: MillerRichard1 on October 01, 2019, 01:36:47 pmThe following is based off what I observed in the 2 routes I've already done


Route 203: Timetable doesn't acknowledge the line number as 203 heading back Downtown. There are no exterior announcements. Philip-Lakeland isn't acknowledged as the next stop and at Springfield-Lakeland, there's no arrow indicating where to go

Route 204: No exterior announcements and Porais Studios Entrance isn't acknowledged as the next stop

I'll  be sure to right down more things As long as no one addressed them already and if I happen to read the feedback already given
You better be sorry.

Anyway none of the GREAT routes have exteriors as of now, neither does the LATS routes for that matter.

The 203 not saying 203 when headed Downtown was intentional lol.

I still need you guys to tell me what you see, cause there is likely things you'll see that I didn't, like Ra pointed out I forgot to add in very important files to the package.

FYI another donor's release will come by the end of the month. So as long as I have you guys telling me what to fix, I'll have something out soon.

Quote from: wxman4life on October 01, 2019, 12:13:49 amSome things I noticed.  For route E, there is no arrow to make the right turn onto IKEA drive.  There is also no signage for the bus stop at Elmyra and Tremont.  Route 203 going to Springfield Mall, may want to add a right turn arrow going to the Bus Depot, I got a bit confused and made the left first, then had to loop all the way around to get back to the bus depot.  The route 203 going the other direction where it turns into the 201, may want to add some left turn signage at Phillip and Lakeland if I remember correctly.  There are no arrows on the Routes 101-104 so I had no clue where to go, nor would the route information would not show up on the bus.  I used the New Flyer.  There was very little lagging on my end and many of the routes I was able to drive pretty smoothly.  I'll check out the other new routes tomorrow when I have a bit more time to. 
For the most parts, missing arrows are from the fact that they just weren't added. I'd have to make special route helpers for the rail routes so it will take a while before I can add those in. I'd also have to create markers for "all trains stop here" to make it clear where to stop for each platform.

For the 203, I'm not quite done with that route yet, as I want the back road from the mall to be the way to start and finish that route, instead of Springfield Road. Still trying to re-route the highways in that area to sorta handle that but it's taking longer than I thought it would (If you noticed that exit headed towards "New Era City" I'm trying to make them all like that).

I can almost promise that this won't be done before the next donor's release, but it will be done before the final version...

Quote from: htownman25 on September 30, 2019, 09:09:50 pmDoes the .hof file have to do with not being able to fully enter the route info via the IBIS?  I had the issue on - for example - the Orion VII NG bus.
yes, copy it over from the Gillig Advantage if those files are there.

Something stupid me skipped over when I was "ready"

Next donors release will have this fixed, along with the texture issues.

Quote from: htownman25 on September 30, 2019, 08:02:16 pmBUG FOUND:  On the Cyuga (CANTA) Chicago D40LFs (the AI buses), the desto signs show up white - meaning - they don't show the route name & number.
Oopsie poopsie.

I think that's lag related, cause someone else pointed out a graphics related bug but it was on the trains. I will probably have to reduce the number of scheduled vehicles dramatically.

This Sunday, the donor's version of Cayuga WIP will be released. What this means is anyone who donated should expect an e-mail with a link to the WIP version of the map. It will also list all the changes made between 0.7.6 and that particular version of the map as well as a link to where you can report bugs and such.

For those that did NOT donate and wish to get the donor's copy, here's a link to donate:

For those that did NOT donate and do NOT  wish to receive the donor's copy, the map is far from done and I do not have an ETA on the public release just yet. I'm aiming for sometime before the new year but no promises yet. Feel free to personal message me for a link and I'll get it to you within a week. But make it clear what you're asking Because if you vaguely ask for a link, but don't make it clear what you want a link to... oh I'll give you a link alright 🤣

It's the same as the before version, nothing was changed at all.

---WARNING: The Chicago Addon IS Required for this Release---


Quote from: Dash5155For those having issues with your destination/route signs, it's because your .hof files were not made to be compatible with the "scrolling" signs on the Chicago bus.If by the popular opinion is that this feature is bad, I will gladly take it out but keep in mind future map updates for Grundelphia, Liberty, and eventually Cayuga will be using the new format.]
Quote from: Dash5155This mod is NOT compatible with Morphi's New Flyer scripts v1.5, so if you have that mod installed, it's recommended that you don't install this on top of it and vice versa.
