BVE Cornwall: The Plymouth Route V1.2.0.0

Post by leezer3 on Mon Feb 17, 2014 9:49 pm

So, I’m pleased to announce that V1.2.0.0 of the Plymouth Route has now been uploaded. This release contains a complete re-write of the trackwork between Keyham & Saltash, as well as many other significant updates. As part of this refurbishment project, approximately 1.2km of track length has been added between Keyham & Saltash, bringing the total drivable length to 21km.
For practical reasons, track layouts are generally based upon the 1971 rationalised layouts- This allows most of the same work to apply to all eras, with a change from semaphore to color-light signalling, and the addition/ demolition of certain buildings. Whilst some buildings are (still) missing, this release should represent a quantum leap forwards in quality between Keyham & the Royal Albert Bridge.





Changelog:
V1.2.0.0:

  • Trackwork and scenery redone from Keyham to the Royal Albert Bridge.
  • Approximately 1km of track length added as part of this.
  • Correct gradients to the Royal Albert Bridge.
  • Semaphore signalling improvements, including goods loop arms.
  • Minor improvements to the Royal Albert Bridge model. (A replacement is planned)
  • Improvements to the accuracy of the 1960s era routefile around Plymouth Station- 2 missing signalboxes and more bits and bobs.
  • Numerous fixes to the Plymouth Bay platform for 3D viewing.
  • Improvements to various objects.
  • All BMPs replaced with PNGs, along with some texture improvements as a result of this.

Cheers Smile
I'm only sorry that the trackwork & scenery at Saltash and afterwards isn't to the standard of the rest of the route. Having been working on this for well over 10 years now, unfortunately I wasn't always this good  Razz 

I've been working on some trackwork today, but unfortunately at the wrong end of the route (I now have the basic track and pointwork complete for another 1km before Laira, with a vague aim of adding a start point at approximately Marsh Mills). I don't know when the next release is likely to be at the moment, but I'll try and get it out a bit quicker- Most of the really heavy scenic work has been done in Plymouth, and countryside is much easier to do with no buildings!
