Hello,

If anyone interested, I am currently re-working my 2 lines (Neuveville - les Taux and Les Taux - St-Julien) into 1, with new scenery, new swiss objects, new junctions and a lot more.
I won't call myself a master of Route Building, but I believe I've learnt a lot from my past projects to make new things now.
(Screenshots below)

First, heres a plan of the line, with the new junctions:

=> Planning (Scenery/Objects/Trackwork):
- Rework of the trackwork between Neuveville - Les Taux => DONE (100%)
- Rework of the scenery between Neuville - Les Taux => WIP (85% done)
- New Chatel - Colomberis junction (10 km) => WIP (Finished the trackwork, working on the scenery - 15% done)
- New Vevet - Goncourt junction (8km) => Has to be made (0%)
- New Veaurier - La Vallée junction (13km) => Has to be made (WIP Trackwork - 5%)
- Updated scenery between Les Taux - St-Julien => WIP (40% done)
- New swiss objects (buildings, stations, landscapes and new photo-realistic textures of the trains) => WIP (20% done)


=> Planning (Errors/bugs/BVE4 options):
- Fixing the scenery errors (has to be done)
- Morning/Afternoon/night w rain/snow effects (BVE4 compatible)

=> Trains:
I *should* redone the RBDe560 and Re 4/4 II trains with the OS_ATS plugin.

And.. now? I've finished the trackwork of the new junction "Chatel" - "Colomberis". I've worked on the Chatel town, added some scenery.
I need to redone some textures with a better resolution.

Screenshots:




Here is some screenshots of the latest updates of Les Taux - St-Julien:

Also, I am going to change the poles to photo-realistic swiss poles, but I am experiencing problems with them ATM, I'll take a look at that later.

Comments and suggestions are welcome.

Thanks!

Here is some screenshots of the updated Les Taux - St-Julien route by night.
I'm pretty happy with the moon effect ;P I should look at the lighting colour effect of the lights, because it's doesn't illuminate enough.. :/

Thanks for your comments.

Here is some screenshots of the future snow / raining&storm version.
I don't know if there is many routes that features storm effects, but the good old Vienna Underground, for it's time, made very nice storm effects! That's really impressed me years ago, and it's helped me to do them.
Well, I still need to fix the rain/storm sounds transition (I believe transition is english too? lol). Also, you can see the raining/snow files of Robert Glass and Anthony Bowden :)

I've made these versions some weeks ago, and I won't be able to update the route a lot the next weeks dues to real life getting busy.. But I will try to finish the junctions before the summer, so I can think of a release for July / August.

..And as for who might be interessted, yes, my La Vallée - Goldau project is reported, I will start it this summer, but I guess it's will take time to make it, especially dues to the upcoming changes on my life..

Anyway, enough said, here is some screenshots =P
I'm also starting the TrackWork from Vevet to Goncourt today (With the junction on the right at Vevet..)











Edit:
And here is just an example of Timetable of Les Taux - St-Julien with the real SBB CFF FFS graphics (I'm going to include several documents for the train drivers that the real drivers has as well :))

Nice weather effects there! And don't worry, your English is a lot better than many native English speakers :).

Considering the things some people who have lived here for years have said before now...
