No trust he doesn't mean you. There is a lot of people who wanted an update and have several complaints about the current release, but have essentially kept their mouths shut when I was asking for feedback. I just have to say whenever the new version comes out, I don't wanna hear any complaints about the routing choices I made from people who haven't said anything when I was asking..

Okay so apparently, the amount of service in Cayuga USA in the WIP version has become too much. So much so that the AI in some circumstances never loads (essentially anything in the lettered range and routes above 300).

So I may end up having to do some massive reductions in service to compensate. I'll test the waters by reducing frequencies on some routes first, and if it works out I will end up doing it for more routes... but if not then some lines may need to be cut/merged in order to keep the map playable

Whatever needs to be done in order to make the map playable, I'm all for and 100% stand behind any changes that need to happen.

Darrah Peak Transportation Center,

Replacing the old Darrah Peak Terminal, with a more (less laggy, and less buggy) streamlined experience.

Cool update as usual.  Keep up the great work.  Speaking of which, you can get back to it (WORK), of course.  :P

Looks dope!

I have a suggestion: do a "Welcome Abroad CCTA (KTA, etc.) Route __(ex. 14 or 70) to ______ _________ (i.e. Rogers Park Casino or Cayuga International Airport)"

This came to me from GG2, where it plays the same announcements (in Mandarin Chinese first then English)

htownman25

I'm afraid something similar that Dash has created - well - has already been done and IMHO, the exterior announcements - the way they sound - are fine as is.

Also, what you're talking about in the 2nd sentence refers to the interior announcements.

welllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll....it's more like a interior announcement on the beginning of routes

htownman25

Long story short, the exterior and interior (or next stop) announcements for the Cayuga USA map (which seem to sound more SEPTA-ish) are fine as is.

I originally had something like that as a pilot for the Lakeland routes. I ended up scrapping it in between versions 0.5 and 0.6 due to the fact that it would require adding several different bus stop cubes along routes just so that they all have their own individual versions on the DBC bus, but that would mess things up for the development process down the line especially because I have things setup where I can change routes on the fly.


Not to say that idea is completely off the table, it just would have to wait until I'm closer to a final version..

htownman25

Not trying to say that is a horrible suggestion in any way but to me, if it ain't broke, don't fix it - especially if you're able to do something AND be able to change things on the fly in the easiest (if not the quickest) way possible.

That's right folk, you read this properly. WIP New Flyer DE40LFR

JK This is the Cayuga USA Development thread and here's a screenshot of buses in their new liveries




Also now that I got your attention, ya'll do know that if this website is to die from inactivity, future updates of this map will only go out to folk that paid for it, and all presently uploaded downloads will no longer be accessible right? I am not trying to make this site go the route of Aussiex, but it's getting there and it's getting there fast. Instead of keeping all your feedback bottled up and only commenting when you see something bad; Share your positive feedback with the world using the forums.

Honestly: there is a WIP DE40LFR being built by Gamingtroll92. But I don't know if he's still working on the bus itself. I'll ask him on Discord

htownman25

That's cute but Dash is talking about something else.  He only did that to, how I say, see who gets baited in to say something and YOU took the bait.  HA!

Moving on and on a much more serious note:  If he were to let the site die due to much inactivity and current downloads are to no longer be available, then what?

On a much lighter note, great photo Dash.  You can get back to work now.  :P

I was confused by that as well. Why say it and not do it? Actually why say it period? No one else said that they donated they just did it.

BUT HE DIDN'T EVEN DO IT SO HE'S JUST WASTING OUR TIME

The 102 and 150 had locals? The 125 and 124 were always mixed with locals because they mostly ran local.

As an update, I will be unable to share any updates for a while as my computer mouse died and thus I cannot use the editor. Because of this, On September 29th, 2019 I will send out a donor's copy of the map despite it not being ready for release. I will have things at a stable point by then so that you can at least explore Lakeland and the new Greenville. Since I will be using more of the donor's funds to get a new computer mouse, this is sorta compensation for that.

So I guess the donors should be thankful I had tech failure. Heh.

A public release is still a ways off, but I promise you I will have something ready by the holiday season!

Tried to ignore that but I just couldn't as it made zero sense to me.  Anyhoo, if you - for the life of me - break something else, you're FIRED!  XD

p.s.  You can get back to work now.
