Why so?  The only issues with the mod were the ones you had already mentioned.

@MillerRichard1 I'm guessing besides the bugs that were already addressed, maybe it's because many people just didn't like the SEPTA-spec'd D40LFs - among issues with the other buses in the mod.

The SEPTA spec'd ones are ok. It's just the luminators that bug me!

That and the fact there's no more powertrains being created

Just make it so then theres 2 variations of the same powertrain in the mod - a SEPTA body variation, and a regular variation.

No.

So will this mod ever get updated or are we all out of luck ...

FYI, since this is a SEPTA mod, it's basically offline indefinitely

I see that you took down the mod because of complaints?  I can probably fix the problem.  What did they not like?

the SEPTA models.

Me: it's just the signbox that i hate, for it is dark at 4 am in Cayuga.

There was complaints about the entire mod (which was meant to be SEPTA spec sounds and models) being SEPTA spec. If I remove the SEPTA specs from the mod, only the C40LF would remain. If I keep the mod with the a general model, and not use SEPTA spec bodies, there ends up being complains about the mod's sounds not matching some other agency, which again is the point of the mod.

There was also multiple complaints about the scrolling signs feature... several years after I introduced it, yet when I introduced it I opened up the doors to complaints from the community. However back then no one said anything and now the complaints are constant but the signs are deeply embedded into the mod.

There's also complaints that there's not enough specs, even though this single mod includes 11 D40LF variants, 2 DE40LF variants, 4 C40LF variants, and 4 D60LF variants. After installation, the mod expands to 3-4 GB so it's already pretty big.

Long story short this mod is dead, more complaints about the mod itself than anything. That's why it's offline. It won't come back the way it was originally if it even comes back.

when I got the mod I brightened the matrix using my editing skills.   I'll give you a download link if you need it.   I edited many of the sounds.   Some of them come for recordings that I made on my phone.  Another thing, I'm making changes to the DE41LFR mod  which was discontinued back in 2016.   When I finish with that mod  i'll give you the download link if you want to test it via gmail.

The lighting thing was a known issue. It wasn't intended to be part of the mod but rather a side effect, and again. The point of the mod was to make it SEPTA spec as it was originally a tie-in to the Grundelphia map.

With that being said, I am locking this thread due to the fact that this mod is no more for now. It will reopen if/when a new version comes out
