Updated version is now submitted to Railpage.
A couple of things about hosting and beta versions that might explain the decision logic.
I think a few people here are missing the point of a public beta. A public beta is not a finished product, it is a version with known, and unknown faults that the public can test and give feedback on. These faults are then progressively corrected with updates until the final polished and (hopefully) working product is finished. This is good method for a big project like this one being worked on by only one or two people with limited time. It means the public gets to try it out a lot sooner than they would otherwise, and we get to spend more of our valuble time modelling new content rather than testing.
Because of the need to make frequent updates as faults are identified, it is helpful to host somewhere I have direct control over. As it stands for Railpage I have to PM an admin to get previous versions taken down, something that can get understandably annoying for both parties if I have to change something suddenly. Hence the original plan to host the evolving beta versions on RailVictoria or file sharing services until the worst of the testing process is over. Then a final, nicely packaged version in a self extracting instaler can be uploaded to Railpage.
So that's why we did it this way, even though it is evidently unpopular with some people. I probably should have written a bigger disclaimer earlier about what "beta" means.
Like I said earlier, if this process seems like too much trouble (or you don't like the idea of using a product with known faults) you are most welcome to wait until the nicely packaged final product is released whenever that may be.
Also I've been told by the RailVictoria admin that the problem that was preventing some people downloading earlier has now been corrected.
Hope you (or anyone else) does not get to up tight about this issue. I and its almost certain myself and all others greatly apreciate the effort that you and any helpers have put into this.
I certainly believe such development release like this are an excellent idea it gives all a great idea of the progress and the developers are helped by the users picking up any errors. The champion of open source development Richard Stallman once said of development releases "There is no such thing as a difficult bug when many eyes are doing the testing".
The problem is simply one of getting access to the files. Rail Victoria does have and odd download setup which normally works well but it does give one a bit of a surprise at first.
Now I did test it again just now and the login problem still exists. I can log into the forums no problem but the login for the downloads site still comes up with "Error: The username you entered does not exist"
Hi I have downloaded V2 of the Beta, just wondering if i should overwrite it or set it up as a stand alone route? Cheers Shane
Station names between (but not including) Clifton Hill and Thomastown do not display correctly. Also, your speed limits don't match your speed limit signs.
I'm not concerned, I expected there was always going to be a few problems. Just about everyone has been very supportive and helpful so far, which is great. There was a time when this sort of process was a bit looked down on in Australian MSTS, so thanks for your support. It has certainly helped us a lot in working out what people are having problems with and getting it fixed.
This was also a first for RailVictoria for hosting, so unfotunately there's been a few problems there too. I'm told by the admin that no login is required to download, I assume the login button there is for administrator login only.
Hey there. Love the route. It's amazing.
Just a couple of things I wanted to ask/know:
1. Has anyone got an activity file that is more or less exact to the epping line of the '90s? If so is it possible to upload or send to me?
2. Where did you get the Met Transit comeng from? The one I found is very basic but seems to be outdated compared to the metro comengs (in terms of modelling and sounds)
3. Please expand this to the whole suburban rail network. If possibly, by starting with the werribee line.
Last ones a bit of a joke unless you could actually be bothered to do it which I'm sure many of us would love.
Once again, love the route. Done an amazing job. Love the loop in particular. It's so good my dad came in and said "how did you get street view of parliament station? And why is there an old green and yellow train?"
Sorry. Another question. I watched a video of your route. It started in the loop and went to epping. It said how if you use openrails it causes the carriages to move around realistically. I downloaded openrails but the carriages are still stiff. Is there a setting I need to change or...
Thanks in advance.
can i have help with a problem with a activity with this route?
ok, i created a activity starting at epping and a direct service to flinders st but when i get to lalor OpenRails crashes. how can i fix it?
I attempted to download the route but the Railpage link does not work, and the vicrail site is down. i tried some other routes and they all had their downloads working, so it is just the one file.
if anyone could fix this please, thanks.
The current version on Railpage is version 2. The file can be downloaded on MSTS Epping line public beta 2 link.
The file is under MSTS routes.
Is this the link you were trying to use?
On my mac the issue is the file name has a .txt suffix appended. What error did you receive?
bomberswarm2When i click the link http://www.railpage.com.au/downloads/744/get/ it says "this webpage is not avaliable".
if i click [color=#0066cc][size=3][font='Open Sans', Calibri, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]http://www.railpage.com.au/downloads/745/get/[/font][/size][/color] that does work. i went to the route folder, clicking on the links all opened a save as box except for the epping v2 one.
