NYC Chaining Distances

Recommended Posts

My boyfriend uses the BVE program and he loves it. He wants to know where he can find any information about the chaining/signal distances used in the game. He is making a NYC layout on the computer and would like it to be as accurate as possible. Thanks!:P
