BART is....BACK!

Recommended Posts

I wish someone would build this system for openBVE

 

Or for TS

 

OT: Once the Warm Springs extension is finished (Berryessa is still a few years away), that should be a fun addition.

If I can learn TS, and coding for OpenBVE, rest assured this is going in there! I have considered both of those simulators. Right now, I need to learn my way around the UI of TS2015, and also how to import my content into the game, since I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) it imports .3ds files. For OpenBVE, I'd start with a two-station shuttle route.

 

I have the DEM map built to Berryessa---Open Street Map actually has the placements of Warm Springs, Milpitas, and Berryessa stations, but no track lines. It runs along the UP line, so it isn't a stretch. My contact within BART says there are no available track maps for the WS extension, but hopefully some goodies pop up soon!

Route is built from Millbrae & SFO stations to the M97 interlocking that controls the entrances to the Daly City yard. It's coming along slowly but surely. Thanks again guys for your help and support (and patience too!)

If anyone has any questions or would like to contribute, please leave a reply. I'm currently searching for photographers willing to trek to several places on the system for pictures and video. You will be compensated for this. Serious inquiries only.

Line is now built through San Francisco, currently terminating at Embarcadero. There are two routes in operation: Embarcadero-SFO/Millbrae, and Montgomery-Daly City.

After lots of consideration, I've decided that until the broad gauge content is finished and to my liking (crisp looking, not clunky), the BART route will be using standard gauge track and items. This is being done due to the availability of better looking content since Standard is....well Standard Gauge, and the LOD meshes on these newer items perform better than the current BART models because I haven't quite learned how to make an LOD mesh, so the FPS suffers. Daly City Yard was barely visible because of rendering issues, but now after the conversion, everything is running smoothly. The normal BART gauge will be used, but not until further notice. This also gives me flexibility in making the route look more realistic, using items from several amazing developers (including the NYCTA/EL SubKit by Austin316Hockey. I will be retaining the signals, and other non-track items. I assure you, you will not be disappointed, and I'll be putting out a video very soon of the newly looking route.
As always, thank you so very much for your patience and continued support of this endeavor!

The line has been completed across the bay to West Oakland!
