Rewriting the history

Post by Michiel » 18 Apr 2017, 17:54

People following the wiki might have noticed that I started to rewrite the history of Simvliet. Over the last years, some parts of Simvliet were altered more then once as part of new releases. Some changes made sense in the historic timeline, while some others....well....didn't :lol: While I could invent the story that the sudden change of Simvliet Centrum from a simple street level station to a elevated station in the middle of the city to a *3.11 spoiler* by saying that a rebel alliance of Rijndam and Briel keep bombing the city forcing me to rebuild it every time, instead I'm singly ignoring the fact that there ever was a Simvliet Centrum station on street level and that *3.11 spoiler* wasn't there yet in 3.10.

This also applies to the many different variations of the Stadionweg station. Ignoring the fact as to why it's called Stadionweg in the first place without there being a stadium there at all, Stadionweg is now formally being defined as a 'former freight station', and there were basically only three variations of it in the history: the old freight yard prior of the Simvliet Metro being introduced, the three track Simvliet metro station + two remaining abandoned freight tracks (that were later temporarily used by the Springstraat - Stadionweg shuttle) and the current version with five tracks and the dive under. The other versions never happened.

In the future releases (probably 3.12) I'm planning to revisit the older versions of 2006 and 1985 with the configuration as they were intended. Perhaps as a bonus a 1968 version will be made some day as well, where the metro is still under construction and the old freight line is still connected, but that will probably be in an even later version.

(Nice idea for the simulator: create a DeLorean timemachine, in the Back to the Future 3 "on rails" configuration, and then program Metrosimulator in a way that you automatically switch to another Simvliet/Rijndam year when you reach 88 miles an hour (141,6 km/h) :D ).

Let me guess: Simvliet Centrum is going to be underground in 3.11

No, can't be more wrong. But I'm not going to say what did happen over there.

And which trains made Stadionweg - Springstraat shuttle?

By the way, Michiel, I think I found an error on Simvliet Wiki page... On the game I have Simvliet 1982, but on the Wiki it says it is mentioned as in 1986. Just to don't confuse anyone! ;)

Wait, a heavy rail station?

As for changes to Simvliet, someone said on the dutch forum about giving one of the stations the Hoekselijn treatment, personally Araplein would be the best option, and I feel that the section from Parklaan/Oostpark-Lelywaard should be elevated, but that's my opinion ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Now we know more about the past of the station Stadionweg and Springstraat.

If that were the case it would be buried from the station Bergen.
