Pushing and pulling the throttle doesn't mean that you have a good feel for the driving, there are more factors that REAL hobbyists feel and I'm not going to explain them to you.
And you just keep saying that you don't like routes without scenery (you just can't stop picking on Briel like a little child
). Briel doesn't have scenery at the moment, but I will eventually work on that and it will look better (at this moment it already has a better working and looking CVL
And for your information, if things exist in reallife, then it really doesn't mean that it's going to be fun in a game!
I really don't want an angry argument here, and I do want to remain friends. So let us not fight over things like this.
We both like the simulator for different elements. For me, I like the realism; the closer a simulation comes to real life operation, the better I like it. Also fictional elements; if they are build in an way which could actually be real, then I like them. That is why I like the fictional metro's (viewtopic.php?f=12&t=825#p9321
), and why I am not a big fan of the HSM (something like that would never be build in real life).
Making things extra fictional just because it is a game (like the collecting seconds and points element in the NoordZuidLijn simulator), does not work for me; that actually damages my motivation to spend more free time on it.
It is apparent that you think different about it.
I am NOT
picking on Briel. If you would like me to test the route for you, then I will, and I will give you objective feedback on problems I detect, and possible points of improvement. And I will refrain from giving subjective remarks on things I personally would not have done, but which you might have chosen to do, what you like. All I ask in return is that you look at Rijndam in the same way, and tell me about errors you may have found.
But only if you want to; if you ask me, I will test Briel and give feedback (which should be seen as feedback, not as criticism).
But just don't tell me you are sure you have better feel for trains and metro's; you have never met me, you do not know me as a person, you do not know my history. Rail transport has been a big part of my identity all my life, and the remark just got my blood boiling. I just had to react.
That's why I made that remark about not liking no scenery in a route; you mentioned that you don't like platform doors because they block the scenery, while Briel is a very big network with almost no scenery (yet) at all. So, I'll apologize about that remark, and I have removed it.
Can we forget about the things we have said to each other in this topic and stay friends?
