Ideas for some unconventional routes...

Post by alex_farlie on Wed May 16, 2012 11:28 pm

Retrived from the archive.org version of Wulf9's former Saxon Loco Works -

ALL of these are possible within the limitations of the Open BVE engine as it CURRENTLY stands, it just needs some creative people
to prove it can be done Smile

# Screeching through the nmist of dark night as 'The Ghost Train' runs again and again...
# 'Basset Junction' -Liquorice bushes, a treacle mine, even some gingerbread houses maybe?
# 'Toytown Express' - Hornby 'O' tinplate running like clockwork.
# 'Colony 2101' - : A Monorail in some distant Starport Perhaps?
# 'Rails across the Hills' : Steam hauled, 3ft Gauge... Watch out for Bandits!!
# 'The Far Tottering & Oyster Creek' : Which featured at the Festival of Britain, as well as being in Punch Cartoons.
(Of course if someone want's to attempt the real-life West Clare Railway, I'm sure Greymac has the objects... )
# 'Vicarstown to Farquhar' : I'll leave you to work out where or what it is.. ;-)
# 'Tunnels under the City' :(e.g. Chicago Freight Tunnels / Mailrail) Do the loco panel as a CCTV view and pretend it's remote operation!
# 'Bella-Venti-Express' : A narrow guage freight for a vineyard?
# 'Burton on Bass' : Standard Guage Industrial, but definitely not a disorganised p*ss up!.
# 'O-Rileys Gold Mine' : A Mine Tramway (could be modern or historical)
# 'Drax Pit Deep' : Mine Tramway- modern coal mining ?
# 'Blackpool Nights': Along the premande in a tram with the illuminations on. Hmm..
# Theme park - Dark-rides can also be built in OpenBVE but probably will need an updated RouteBuilder to built effectively.

I also have recovered 3 longer fictional scenarios...

Wulf9 - You have permission to relase my contributions in that, tracing the other contributors may be an issue though as I don't
recall making many of the objects myself..

In terms of the various sign and marker collection - I've got no objections to the release of those other than a concern that they do not meet current quality standards, being developed rather quickly for BVE2. Ideally someone should re-do the Tube ones as proper Vector versions based on the various Transport for London 'style' manuals that exist. As to the NSE ones, again they should probably be subject to vector conversion, but I don't know of an 'accessible' copy of the NSE style manual to enable full conversion of these to the proper versions..

Is that the E&C route or the Croydon 'Beta' (which reached 1.03 according to some mail I managed to recover from a crashed drive)

It's the E & C one - and I'm not planning on releasing anything from it, or the marker signs, just thought you may like to grab them so you have 'fresh' copies Cool
