@wasmic As far as I remember, sunken tracks were missing as of the alpha version (I'm looking at you, @andreharv ;)). But current development version features them and they work with @boformer 's station seamlessly :

Looks awesome! Does it mean that final release of MOM will feature these sunken tracks?

The orange metro train in the photo is the Helsinki Metro M100 series. Is that going to be the default metro train in the MoM mod, or are there additional default metro trains that can be used?

Finally bothered to load a save instead of just the Asset Editor, so here's a better picture of the R62 and a one of the new R46. Last ones (R32 and PATH PA5) are coming up soon!

The R46/R62/R142/R160 train models look great! Do you have any plans for other New York City Subway metro train models other than the R32 and the PA-5?

Are there plans to have a way to remove the barriers on the ground metro?

That was mentioned a long time ago by the developer. I'm not sure if it's still on the table, but I'd really like to have that. @andreharv, can you shed some light on this?

  • We have developed a fenceless version.  It is developed, though I'm not sure how it will be selected/accessible.  I'll have to confirm with @BloodyPenguin but I'm pretty sure it will be available...maybe.

    I joined Simtropolis specifically for this mod, and am very excited to hear it's coming out soon!

    One question, I understand that it will automagically convert existing metro stations to be compatible with the mod? What about the Grand Central Station asset that has both train and Metro service? Or is that particular asset unique and would require a workaround?

    Thanks in advance.

    Sounds great :) Especially for guys like me who puts the tracks into some trench ;)

    This mod won't convert the stations. This one does. You can set exactly what assets you want converted, so you can make sure that only some of your stations get converted, so that you can use both metro and heavy rail.

    Ah, excellent, thank you for the response! Will look forward to trying it out.

    @SevereWxEddie I would suggest making a duplicate of the m2 module (just load the m2 in the asset editor and save as a different named asset) and then add that copy to the converter - that way you can have m1 and m3 as normal train and m2 either one. I think the m1 metros might elongate to fit the MOM (I'm not sure though)

    I think he meant the New York Grand Central Terminal asset which is available on the workshop and features underground train station tracks + metro ;)

    As it isn't some proper train station it cannot be converted to metro. It's an unique asset with some station functionality added.

     

    Anyway, as I'm using this asset I can say it works fine using one workaround: the upper metro stations (at -4m) have to be connected to the next metro station (which has to sit at -12m) using vanilla subway tracks. Right after this you can use the new metro tracks at -12m ;)

    The other metro platforms of the Grand Central can be connected directly using the new tracks as those already sit at -12m :)

    That's the one I was referring to. Excellent, I'm glad I can still use it, thanks for letting me know the workaround!

    I want to select the tracks of the one subway stations separately to specify the route.

     

    But the shift key does not work (I am using Multi-Track Station Enabler 1.2.0).

     

    *I can not write well in English. I hope you understand.

    thx

    Many rapid transit systems, particularly newer ones, use platform screen doors or automatic platform gates (which prevent people from falling onto the tracks) that open and close simultaneously with the train doors. Do you have any plans to insert numerous types of platform screen doors/automatic platform gates into the stations used for the Metro Overhaul Mod?

        I am feeling really stupid.
        I had a wide array of custom content - lots, buildings, parks, transportation, etc. - and I had to reformat my computer. After reinstalling SimCity 4 Deluxe Version, I've downloaded a handful of the previous mods, but only one parks download even shows up on any of the in-game menus. I've tried unzipping downloads into every possible folder, but still get nothing. It's not like the old "brown box" problem that happens when you don't have the dependency files.
        I have Windows 7, if that makes any difference.

        I downloaded the Heretic Seaport Project as well as its dependencies, but the railway textures are still missing. And I already downloaded the railway textures.
        What did I do wrong to cause this issue?
