BVETube Train Development

Post by Movingmillion on Thu Aug 16, 2018 10:14 pm

I am pleased to announce that alongside our Metropolitan Line project, our team has recommenced work on the D78 Stock. The train will be completely reworked from the ground up from the work that had started in July 2017. This project was started by SP1900. We are also working on recovering lost BVE routes with the permission of the original creators. For example, Bushey heath's Northern Heights route. However, I digress. This thread will focus on updates being made to the D Stock and the other priests that we have lined up. This includes the A60, my personal all time favourite train (as you can tell from my icon) and others, including a 1983 Stock, and others. 

I hope you do enjoy these, once they release.

The first version of the D Stock that will be done will be the Refurbished version from the early 2000s to 2017.

Side note, the Overhaul, as a coin of phrase, no longer exists. It has evolved into BVETube itself, which aims to do everything and more, that the Overhaul aimed to do. For example, BVETube is committed to at some point developing fictional trains, routes and scenarios. This will come after all real life projects, however.

A60/62 development has been passed to me for now (I guess? from the last post in the "overhaul" thread)  Very Happy sounds got updated, exterior model is being worked on.

Does anyone have any data on its acceleration and braking rates? I used it from the old BVE4 version, it feels right but I'm not sure how accurate is it.
Also, did anyone had a chance of riding A60 before refurbishment? seems like motors sounded somewhat different back then.

The only real difference I believe is that the motors were a lot louder due to them being geared differently I think, it should still be the same motor type and sound.
Just take a sample from an older A stock recording and turn the volume down and muffle it for the refurb version, easy enough to do.

The acceleration certainly didn't change.

They definitely did the same thing for the C Stock when they got refurbished. They were extremely loud.

The acceleration and braking didn’t change however, before refurbishment the train was capable of reaching 70mph and later restricted to 50 after refurbishment I think. The motors were GEC type I believe, a lot like the BREL EMU trains. From various sources, including old LU Train operators who worked on the Met Line, the motors were very loud and a distinctive sound could be heard. The guy on YouTube Citytransportinfo has some good footage of riding the A stock in the 1980s especially in his A stock memories video. So yeah, the motor noise was effectively almost “cut out” during refurbishment though it was still possible to hear it sometimes

The a stock was funnily enough restricted to 62 I believe. Not sure if it was after refurbishment though

I read about max 70mph when they were built and they got restricted to 50 shortly after the refurbishment. And I was asking for pre-refurb (turns out, it'll work for refurb as well) acceleration info as well Smile

I know about these videos, used for some sounds but motors are almost always mixed with some changing noise (like joint sounds) which is barely possible to filter out without bringing in a huge distortion.

I think I managed to get one good motor sound out of one of his videos. I'm not sure how to send it for your opinion though.

EDIT: this is in no way the final product. And this will only be used as a baseline.nthe finished oroductnwill be unrecognisable from this model. Very Happy

One of the best pics of the A Stock that we have at this stage. Not a new photograph by any means, but still a good one!

Update:
We are also currently working on a consist with Metropolitan No.1 and dreadnaught carriages. For now MSTS models are being used for testing purposes. The preliminary results are very promising!

Perhaps not my decision, but my team have started work on finishing a 3D model of the Class 483. Here is a photograph of progress made. What has already been done is the body. We are currently working to fix up the interior, especially modelling the seats.

You might notice an error, but that is being fixed tonight.

We are currently focusing on the Metropolitan Line route, and on the train side we are currently focusing on the 483. We are dabbling a bit into other trains too, but these aren't having much focus put on them

Well one of the guys from BVETerminus gave me the unfinished train and I felt the urge to take over development. I want to make this look as good as possible because a good route should come with a good train (in my opinion). As of now I have put my personal projects aside (though I’ll probably resume them after I finish this train) so to get this train working. I hope you don’t mind that that’s what your 483 object is being used for. Im also working on that front roof curve that the original object did not have as well as a detailed interior which I’ll try my best to do

Alas, that is what we are currently working on. We have half a dozen projects in terms of trains. Let's just say the team has put them 'on hold' until this train has been made up to a decent standard. That is, or at least until some decent progress has been made. I will try to post an update to the Metropolitan No 1. project very, very soon.

Error fixed. Sorry about the slightly poor image quality; Apparently, and it appears as if, Macs don't like taking screenshots.

No, I don't mind at all, I was just curious to know what you were actually working on given the various screenshots of different projects, best of luck!

Thanks!

More has been done to develop the seats, although at this stage I would not say that a screenshot is meritable. The progress made is very good; but I think we should leave it for a day or two to get peeps guessing Very Happy
