Release: RET 400/1000

Post by Sjoerd » 16 Aug 2018, 18:50

Release for Metrosimulator 3.14; the RET historic tram, motorcars series 400, and trailercars series 1000. :)

Image

Release was intended for 3.15, but as that is still some time away and the model is already pretty good, I don't see a good reason to keep you waiting.
Perhaps 3.15 will include an improved version, but no guarantees on that.

One thing you should be aware of; the destination signs will only work in Rijndam 2022 Full version 1.1; As the other routes where released before the build of this tram started, they lack the files needed for this tram (as the destination signs/displays are route-specific). You can use the tram in other routes then Rijndam 2022 v1.1, but the destination signs will then stay black. ;)

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! It's finally out! Time to do some tests!
If you want to make a very fast ride, just disable ATB/ZUB, put trottle to 1.00 and enjoy.

Where does tram line 7 go?
The destination implies it's a circleline of some description; and is it related to those pictures of the tram tunnels earlier?

I had to finish the destination display before Rijndam 2022 v1.1 was released, as the texture file had to be part of the route folder structure. At that moment, I wanted to keep an option open to create an activity with a touristic line, to run besides the normal timetable. 'View the city from an historic tram'. With a route like CS - Blaak - Buitenvelden - CS. I haven't realized that idea, but the destination is available for it.
If you want to use it in an activity; the scrollsign code to put in the CTD on top of the route you are making is simply "7-Rondrit". ;)

(Of it were English, It would be "7 City Tour")

Would it be possible to electrify the museum line with overhead contact wires so we can use the trams their too?

No; the tram doesn't fit well between the 3rd rails. And removing the 3rd rails would make it impossible for the MG2 to run the shuttleservice to Noordvliet. ;)

See the problem;
