Hopefully you found an answer by now, but it shouldn't even had been that way.

Hello all,

As you may know, the site was basically down from Mid-September to now. Well the good news is that the site is back up and running at 90% (only thing broken right now is logging into the Multimedia gallery), but the bad news is: if you made a new account anywhere between August 1st and October 22nd, 2020, your account was rejected and you have to re-register a new account. Your application was not rejected for anything you did, but rather it was part of an automatic purge that I've done while upgrading the site's software. I mass rejected all the pending applications on the site while I was working on it as an attempt to clean up the logs. You can make a new account that should be automatically approved upon activation, and I apologize in advance for any and all inconvenience that this had caused.

In case you're wondering why the site was down for so long, first in August, the security certificate expired and I (Dash5155) was too busy with work and the family to really get around to renewing it. In September, Porais Studios shut their doors for good. Since a lot of the site's backend was on Porais Studios, a lot of things had to be moved around to ensure get the site running again. When things were finally up and running (around October 22nd), there was an upgrade to the software used on this site made available, which is why the forums were down for maintenance.

Hopefully nothing else happens and things are back to normal. If you have any questions, feel free to comment in THIS thread.

Thank you for your patience and have a nice day!
The remaining 2004 DE40LFs have retired, and now all first generations are gone.

Also, 5630 finally bit the dust, meaning only two 2003 model D40LFs remain.

As for the 2004 D40LFs, we lost the following:
5800, 5804, 5807-5809, 5812, 5817, 5818, 5819, and 5823

There's announcements???
Once again a long gap between now and when I last updated this. We are now phasing out the remaining first generation DE40LFs

Quote from: Genesis on June 14, 2020, 02:45:33 PMObjects and splines are not downloading. The file starts to download but crashes after a while. Is there another server that I can download? Like Google Drive or Mega?
Unfortunately my computer is down again so I can't upload from it at the moment. Once I get a new PSU, I'll upload a new pack as well as an update.

Memorize these controls

IBIS: Enter   Ctrl + Num Enter
IBIS: 0...9   Ctrl + Num 0 ... Num 9
IBIS: Delete   Ctrl + Num . (Del)
IBIS: Line/Course   Ctrl + Num *
IBIS: Route   Ctrl + Num /
IBIS: Terminus   Ctrl + Num -


In order to set the bus you must enter the line number which is usually the line number and then 00

So say route 75 would be 7500.

In order to enter this, gotta first set the IBIS into "line number mode" then enter the actual numbers. If you are using the keyboard for this, you must hold the ctrl key while entering the following on the numpad:

[num *][num 7][num 5][num 0][num 0][num enter]

Then release the ctrl key. This enters the code 7500 for the line number and confirms it. Wait a few seconds and then check your bus' destination sign. If you did this correctly, your bus should be displaying this:


NOW to enter the proper direction for the bus you must perform a similar action, but first you must set the IBIS into route mode. In this instance, the route will be the direction. Usually this is 01 or 02, but some maps have different numbers for each, up to 99 can be possible so it's best to check which is which, safest assumption is that it's 01 or 02 though.

In this example we will use 01. SO in order to put in a direction, so first put the IBIS machine into route mode, then enter the code 01 and confirm. If you are using the keyboard, hold the ctrl key while entering the following into the numpad.

[num *][num 0][num 1][num enter]

Then release the ctrl key. If you entered this correctly, your destination sign should now be displaying a route and a destination (provided the map you're using has such a route and line number).

If your bus is now displaying something, your interior signs and next-stop voice announcements should also be working. If the bus does not announce the next stop on its own as you approach it, simply use the "Q" key on your keyboard and the next stop will refresh on your bus, causing the next stop announcement to play.

Funny enough I just got a new bed from Walmart, and we trying to get a new TV as well.

It sucks that one can't go in person and see what it's like anymore

Quote from: rasonnier on May 20, 2020, 09:07:51 PM@Dash5155 did you purposely not have the airport repaint not work for the D40s? lol
I wish I did something like that on purpose. But now I did not. I'll have to update the repaint pack anyway because I also messed up the vents on the "route 49" wraps.

You'd have to provide a log file or a detailed list of what you installed. Otherwise this isn't enough information to help.

Quote from: gdoxtater on May 13, 2020, 04:09:15 AMI seem to have a bug when it comes to the first trip on Line 34, leaving 16th-City heading towards Fern Rock TC.
When I arrive at Fern Rock TC, the passengers don't get off, nor does the schedule change. Any thoughts?
I'll look into this matter. I'm not sure why this happens honestly.

Quote from: Vivek1998 on May 10, 2020, 12:28:40 AMThanks a ton for responding!
While we're at it, Market Street Owl MSL is not playable... is that a bug too?  I don't seem to be able to choose service and time after choosing MSL..

Can I also address the issue of some kind of an invisible 'wall' that I always crash into if I have collisions turned on?  This happens at multiple places.. Some of them I remember are
when I get into Darrah Peak station at the first 90 degree turn,
Just off of Oak Park stop and
The junction after which tram tracks are visible when we drive line 31 from 76th to City Hall... I apologise for not knowing the name of the location...

Sorry to bother you..

Thanks again!
Because of the collisions of some objects, I'd recommend playing without collisions on. Since I do not develop objects myself, I cannot "fix" this without replacing objects with more generic ones, which would end up making the overall experience dull.

As for the Market Street Owl, it's only operational between 12:30am-5:30am on the map, so if you attempt to load it at say 12pm, nothing would show up as the route is done for the day at that point.

Quote from: Vivek1998 on May 09, 2020, 02:50:56 PMHello sir.. what a great effort you've put on this masterpiece of a map!!! Lots of respect

May I point out just one issue I have while playing Cayuga 0.8? The bus line 2 to Cayuga City via Union doesn't seem to work on my game properly :( I get no interior announcements, neither does the red display (pardon me I don't know what it is called... hotkey Shift+Y) on the top left change from "WELLINGTON STATION" even after I pick passengers from Wellington and move on to the next stop.. The passengers however, do not seem to mind and get in anyway;stop after stop.  the timetable analytics show only Wellington station even after I stop at various stations and pick up passengers...

Please give your valuable advice..._/\_
Thank you so much

Edit : I checked the timetable analytics when I had just started the Line 2 service at 5:25 A.M... It said

Wellington station Depart planned at 17:10:00 Actual Depart 17:10:05

What is happening? The service at 5:25 AM somehow shows timetable of 17:10 service... if I'm not mistaken.

In another instance I also came to notice that it sometimes puts depart time based on the time in-game as I select the line number and click OK.  So it shows 'departed from first stop' before I get to the first stop from the spawn point (Depart too early).  After that the game runs fine, but without interior announcements.

I have this bug only with line 2.

Please respond to this and help me :(
Long story short, Wellington Station is bugged. I'll have to rebuild it at some point honestly.

Quote from: openbve092 on April 29, 2020, 08:04:51 PMThis gets me really hyped up.

It's good to see Oregon is finally getting some traffic, it was dead with just the 68 before lol. Excited to see how Whitman plaza is going to be built up, do you have any inspirations? It would be cool if there was a place like the old Whitman plaza from grundelphia.
Quote from: Dpflames on April 29, 2020, 08:08:07 PMI'm so excited and can't wait for this update.
The layout would not match that of Grundelphia because of the street objects used in Grundelphia (which I am not using in Cayuga because some of them are broken) I will make it match more like Westfield Plaza in Lakeland, except instead of Walmart, the main store would likely be something else (I'm thinking Target), and similar to Springfield Mall, I would have buses layover in the parking lot, but unlike Springfield Mall, I would give each route individual berths instead of having them park in parking spaces.

However for nostalgia sake, I would use some of the same buildings for stores and stuff.

Quote from: pg123 on April 24, 2020, 01:37:58 AMUpdate:

- It appears 2/4 air gauges fill just fine, both P's do not fill at all.
- When reverse is selected, the reverse tone is audible, but the back up lights do not light up on the back of the bus. They turn on when I press repair. The engine also engages once I press repair.
- After going from reverse to forward, the bus kicks in for a second, and then a beep sounds and the engine shuts off. Eventually I need to respawn the bus and try again.

Does this help?
This literally never happened to me.

Quote from: pg123 on April 23, 2020, 03:38:51 PMHi there,

Wondering if someone can help: I cannot get any LFS' to move after starting the engine. The air pressure does not move at all from 0 for the engine. The brakes and doors work fine.

Wait about a minute before shifting it into drive. You cannot shift while revving the engine, but revving the engine a bit speeds up the process.
