    Thumbs up

    Hello old Friend, looks like Animation to the MAX going on here, all good and great additions.

    I'm thinking with all this Construction going on, the Route should be in Tip Top shape and no lame Pot Holes lying around in the Roadway to mess up our Cars..........

    It is not often that I am surprised by something that happens in a game/sim. Tonight was different. I intended to post a short vid of an animated Bobcat tractor operating next to the Ol' Betsy Mine on my Modified Pioneer & Freedom layout. So for added detailing I threw in a SW1500 with an empty 100 ton hopper....to my surprise as the hopper moved under the mine, one of the coal chutes dropped down and filled the hopper with coal. I had no idea this was an operating industry until now..
    So not only do we have an animated Bobcat but a fully functioning mine as well. What a nice surprise.

    Surprise indeed.

    I have found out more than once, what I thought was working, did not, so these surprises I would say are on the Rare Side!

    Looks fantastic in the way it operates, I like the built in Delay, making it operate more realistic, and it allows better clearance for the operating Loco as well,

    I have come across lots of Mines and other loading objects that wouldn't allow me to use certain Assets, nice to see this one doesn't have that issue.

    It is with great pleasure and a big thanks to WCRULEZ for allowing me to modify his wonderful Pioneer & Freedom Layout and add it to the DLS. Should be showing shortly........

    I have put a great deal of effort into this one and I think you will be pleased. I added a simple block signal operating system for 2 AI trains (I use junction hold and release commands during sessions) to allow them to run by themselves. Seems to work. Animated features include an operating coal conveyor belt, a Bobcat and Excavator along with ATLS crossing signals.

    Now there are 3 mines, 2 are industry ready ( Mill Creek mine aka: Ol Betsy and the JR Coal unloader). The third mine which is in the main yard I had issues with installing an industry service track, any attempt resulted in the tracks to the left being moved out of place regardless of how I tried to overcome it.....but you can always use the quick load command....


    I added highway street lights more for daytime detail then night ....we all know night lights can be ugly.


    All the assets should be found either on the DLS or freeware by JointedRail and RRMods...... I had a hard drive crash and lost websites for other assets so if some kind souls could help others out it would be appreciated. No custom content should be on the layout.....hopefully...

    The rear yard is for a staging area or someone could finish it up as another side possibly with a power plant that uses the coal from the mines. I also included a backdrop there.


    I used CSX signage and like to think this is a division located in the rural Northeast...but you can change it to fit your needs....Enjoy and hopefully I will be releasing more versions.....


    Now since this has a lot of Speedtrees and animated features, you will need a decent machine to run it...my specs are i7@7700, 16GB Ram, GTX-1060 (6GB)... With this I get decent frame rates with mostly everything high/maxed and low shadows and Anti aliasing at 4x....

    Enjoy !!!

    Nice! When I was thinking for a name for the layout, I combined the Pioneer Valley(it was on the original engine shops), and the name on one of the stations lol. Creative, I know. This layout is awesome looking! Haven't had a chance do fully download it, but is being installed in parts! Can't wait! Nice work!
