BeitragThema: Route 17 :: Leamington - Warwick (Revamped)   Di 15 März - 10:01

Welcome aboard the 17



For those of you who are from the Warwickshire area of England, you may well be aware of a route now called the X17, which serves Coventry, Kenilworth, Leamington, Warwick Hospital, Warwick and more recently Warwick Parkway. While I envision to create the entirety of the route in the later months, I will starting with a popular section of the line between Leaminton, Warwick Hospital and Warwick.

So whats the deal?

The line is due out in the coming months. It is very early in development. Due to it being a Stagecoach route, I would highly recommend to take advantage of this downloadhttp://omnibussimulator.forumieren.com/t2766-stagecoach-skins We will be using the SD85 skin for our main routes, and we may use the SD-202 in a the future (without guarentee).

Timetabling

The route in reality will take around 1.5 hours from point to point, and this section will take around 20-25 minutes in one direction. I will using sections of the real timetable to portray this. This route is usually every 15 minutes, however 'cat and mouse' is commonly used when buses run late.

The route itself

The route has a certain sense of challenge, including one particulary nasty turn in real life at the corner of Masons Road for Warwick Train Station. I will uploading a route map section of the route, at the same time I upload pictures of the map. The route is mostly town based, with a few countryside locations, but there are no big cities until Coventry city at the beginning of the route to Warwick!

Anything else

Much like everyone else, I am fairly new to the editor, so there will multiple versions of this coming out of this small segment of the trip. Once I have reached a understandable level, I will be expanding the route, and hopefully make it the full length, and where the passengers embark and disembark at peak points. Also note above that we are only using digital matrixes, as rollblinds are not used on this route much anymore, and also the livery on the SD85 is more time suitable. I may even make some special 17 branding

This route is now getting a brand new makeover, using ADDON streets. I encountered, and caused, too many issues with the previous 17 map, with splines and junctions and what not, so I have decided start from scratch and develop new roads, with roundabouts!, to make it feel like Warwick and Leamington!

Leaving Warwick Bus Station on return to Leamington, showing off the square and matrix



After departing the bus station, travels past the car park lot and school



After travelling up a bumpy hill, we take a quick corner before pursueing on.



The next small hill and into our first bus stop past what would be a supermarket and then a library. I have replaced roundabouts with junctions.



Finally leaving the main road and into Lakin Road estate, with vintage roads and housing, past the renowned police station.

And thats about all I have developed at the moment. Still got to do Lakin Road, Warwick Hospital, Masons Road, Portbello Bridge, College and Leamington Spa. There will also be a form of depot, much like the Pilzdorf depot, except it will be modelled off the real Leamington Spa depot.

To get to Lakin Road, where our tour finished, took around 6 minutes including picking up passengers!

I do not know when the release is but hopefully in the next few weeks. I am doing this, as well as driver rotas, as well as work, so its bit by bit, by I try and keep on top of it on a daily basis.

I will be uploading the map file and .hof files as well. I do not know how yet but probably not as a .rar since I dont prefer using this format. I will provide walkthrough instructions to get it to work. The map is quite busy at the moment, yet loads very quickly compared to other maps since it does not focus on smaller objects.

I will create a video later on. Do you know any good free capturing software?

Until then, here is latest development. Please note some misleading junctions to be fixed, and a few other bits and pieces.
I have now done Warwick Town, Lakin Road and Warwick Hospital entrance. Still to do Warwick Rail Station, Masons Road, Princes Drive, and Leamington Parade. The route currently totals around 12 minutes with lots of bumps like the actual town! I might just extend it to my home town of Kenilworth at the rate I'm going, however.



Police Station turning, now developed!



First corner on Lakin Road, before a hill drop.



A hill as reopposed to the millions of bumps you encountered on the way. There are many more still to come, however as you leave Lakin Road, the variety is less as the area becomes developed.



The famous Warwick Racecourse! Usually belongs slightly closer to Warwick, but still a key landmark.



Lakin Road has a few local corner shops, mainly supplying for the racecourse, and of course the old folks. These days these shops are often letted to businesses as offices, as all the services are single-decker low-floor, for the elderly of the town.



Up a small bridge over some locals allotments and railways line. The line will lead to Warwick Parkway(from Warwick Bus Station) and Warwick Station (in the Leamington direction). It is undeveloped at the moment, however it will be when Warwick Station comes along later in the route.



After leaving the bridge and going past a few more houses and around a corner, you come to this rather handsomely unfinished junction. There will be a beneficial surprise at this junction once it has been developed further. We are now on the road to Hospital



Down the hospital road. Notice how the texture has returned to a more modern style, and a lot flatter. This is how much of the route will be now, with some nasty turns to keep up the challenge!



And I leave this update with the Warwick Hospital at its current state. Hope you enjoyed the new section of the route, and next up route to Warwick Station!

PS advice time. There are some road junctions, however would mind if I blocked some off by just making the roads curves around and not connect? Since I will not be developing far off where the route branches off, I see little point in making traffic systems for it. Owing that the route effectively turns into one long road eventually, advice for smaller junctions would be helpful (I will keep major junctions in, however)

You might want to take a look at the sharpness of the bottom of that hill... that's going to be a ground clearance issue. Fair enough if it's intentional, but I don't think it is. And if it is, I think it's a bad place to have something like that because it seems a fairly main road and you wouldn't have something that sharp in real life somewhere like that. Perhaps on turning onto another road or small back roads, but on a main road it would always be smoothed out a bit more than that to prevent these problems.

Looks nice but just 2 picky points;-

1. "Aboard" is spelled "Aboard" not "Abord" Very Happy (See your opening post).

2. You need to 'centre' the destination, on the matrix boards. ('Leamington' is offset to the left)... this is easily done in the HOF file.

Sorry for my late reply.

Progress has been slow recently, partially due to the fact Im not happy with the map and also because I have a new map idea. But primarily with work Very Happy

I will be updating the map a little bit tommorow, and also working on another project and seeing which comes out the best! I would say that 17 is halfway-60% complete, but any help with routes would be great. Ill type up a timetable for someone to apply, or if you know the 'easy' way of doing it...since when I recently tried its messed up lol!

I could do this, but unfortunately, first thing to get it working is completed trackentries of routes in both directions.

The route is all down so its about adding buildings. Again this is my first map and I have a distinct feeling when it comes out it will not be as great as I hoped lol! I know thats no way to sell a product lol but thats me!

In terms of time of release, no clue! I've got a lot of shifts at the moment, and am enjoying the OMSI bus driving a bit too much haha! It will get done at some point. The other issue I'm thinking is if I misrepresent it, how does the law work of portraying a product>
