Playable demo of Rail Route is out!
 
Note that it's first polished prototype. We wanted it more like a game, so we added one scored level into it [​IMG]. Final game will be A LOT different in terms of game play.
 
But any feedback is more than welcome! Can you reach score of 27?

 14   The Mainline / TrainSims / Rail Route - a rail network simulation indie game    Posted Apr 13th, 2018, 6:24pm 
NEW Post By mithril       Linked Image Included, Click Here to View Entire Post
Long time ago I discovered a Czech hobby rail network simulator called simply Brno (http://brnosim.wz.cz/) – no surprise, it models railways around Moravian city of Brno. It is very different to other simulation games like Transport Tycoon because it is very realistic – according to pictures and manual, it has almost the same interface as real dispatchers use for traffic control.
 
It cost me many sleepless nights and gave me many early mornings when I was still playing when the sun rose. But now it is more than 10 years old and it is not a real game – it is just a simulator. You do not get any reward for playing (score or at least some delay statistics), if you want some "evolution" / "campaign", you just start at Sunday night (light traffic) and try to manage Monday morning (heavy trafic); and it tends to be quite repetitive – you just route the trains. And it is in Czech only, including manual counting 55 pages of essential instructions how to use the simulator (without them, you are screwed).
 
So I persuaded one of my friends to create a real game – Rail Route – a rail network management and operations simulator. In our game (once finished), you negotiate contracts, build railroads, set up routes for trains and control the traffic. You unlock features to your dispatcher interface, upgrade railway network elements and research new technologies that allow you to automate the operations.
 
Linked Image:  http://https://railroute.bitrich.info/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/rr_top.png" border="0">
 
Planned features:
 
- rail network building
- dynamic traffic contracts
- research system
– improve your dispatcher interface
– research new rail network elements
– upgrade existing elements
– unlock automation of the tasks
- multiple game modes
– career mode
– challenge mode
– puzzle mode
- in-game editor to create community based levels and scenarios, so that you can model your local / favourite railway.
 
Currently, we are in a prototyping phase and we will post updates about the progress of the game development. We would like to hear early feedback from the community so we will release playable prototypes regularly. Stay tuned!

I can never get past how absolutely clueless most of these "environmentalist" are.  How about them giving up air conditioning?  How about when a house electrical service of four 15 amp fuses was considered good enough.  Could they make it with that?  (We bought one of those in 1973 that had been built in 1939.  A complete rewiring was my major project for the place.)  If we really want to reduce energy consumption, figure out how to do with less electricity all the time, and I don't mean such things as unplugging your computer's power cord from the wall.  No dishwasher.  Do them by hand.  No clothes dryer, hang them on the line for the true solar powered clothes dryer.  Did you know that outdoor clothes lines are prohibited in many neighborhood covenants.  Reusable packaging?  Remember paying deposits on coke bottles and glass milk bottles that were reused?  I could go on and on, but I won't.

I hate to say it but as Americans we no longer care about our neighbors.. How many use self check out because they can not wait in line a few extra minuets?  How many of us have gone to paperless billing etc... Nobody thinks of how there actions will impact others.. We only fight for a cause that has an impact on us... "we" do not protest till its our job on the line.

It's a moderen train in his time, have a sleeper coach, mountain executive coach even though it're wildlife executive train and CFC AC system. It's a Bima train the train, train that come from Area Operation 1 Jakarta this it's a first moderen train in a inthe year of 60-67, His name takenfrom a second brother of Pandhava's family in Mahabharata's story, before 2013, serve a Gambir-Surabaya Gubeng destination, but, skyrocket it of passenger demands, Bima's be extended to Malang, they're the transit station : Malang(1), Lawang(2), Sidoarjo(3), Surabaya Gubeng : locomotive shrink place(4), Mojokerto(5), Jombang(6), Nganjuk(7), Madiun(VIII), Solo Balapan(9), Yogyakarta(10), Purwokerto(11), Cirebon(12), Jatibarang(13), Jatinegara(14), Gambir(15).
 
Bima use trainset from Jakarta Kota rolling stock depots and with trainset arrangment CC206 DE locomotive series+8 executive coach 2016 artificial+eating coach+power station coach
 
A rumors state, in formely when first launched a locomotive pullers aren't BB200 or BB201 DE locomotive series but, the BB301 or BB304 because, that's locomotive the most frequently pull.
 
Any openvoice or question?

Maybe I will do something to smooth out his English later, but not now.
 
A couple of comments:  Note the coupler, which is fuzzy in the picture. It is an AAR style coupler. (for Ronal's benefit:  AAR is Association of American Railroads)  This is now the standard of most of the world.  Except for the special types used in passenger train sets, the old "hook and screw" remains the standard in Western Europe, maybe all of it.  Russia has their own system which appears to be an AAR knock off.  Similar but not identical.  India and Pakistan and Bangladesh may be also still be using a hook and screw type.  If the rails look close together, it is because they are.  Indonesia track gauge is 1067 mm, that is 3'-6".  The extreme rounding of the top corners of the cab of the locomotive is due to tight clearances.  
 
(I used to say to some of the European guys I worked with in the past:  Why don't you eliminate that 19th century style coupling and join the rest of the world in coupling system before you lose the chance to join the 20th century before it is gone.)

I have been looking for JUST that info for a while now.
 
My G'pasrents' house was right behind the line on tiny Klauder Rd. between Kenmore Av and Englewood.
 
When I was a kid I still can remember being mezmerized by Steam Engines. Wow!
Then the Steam gave way to diesel, and the Erie would run Baldwin As 16's on the falls job. C&O also had rights over therre and I can Imagine if Black Rock got plugged they'd re route as I believ most of this traffic was from Detroit. They sued to come thru pretty regular.
I moved to Akron OH from Tonawanda in 1964, and only when I visited the G'parents, I could get some train action. I actually, when I was in my early 20's fresh out of the Navy, but if one was comin' I'd go to the back yard and watch.I moved to Colorado about a year later and said Good Bye to the Falls line.  Later, about 4 years after I moved out here, I was back for one reason or the other, and all there was was a vestige of track and weeds all around. The trestle that we, as kids used to play on at International Jct was GONE! ALL the rail was GONE. Ripped out both Black Rock lines, viaducts and any evidence that ever a rr existed there.  
All that "adventure" drove me to hire out at  Union Pacific, and give 'em 31 years of my LIFE to being a Conductor in the beginning, to later an carded Engineer for my remaining years of my career.  
Anyway, that's wherre it all started!
I am building well, working on getting to it, a model RR. I wanna umake it with Baldwins and C&O GPs. I have one Baldwin in Western Maryland livery, and I'm lookin for a second then there's the decals....
Please excuse my ramblings. The Falls Line was very much a part of who I am today. (Who ever THAT is)
All the Best,
Rick Bevan
