It's incredible, I had this idea 3-4 years ago for its implementation with the elevated rail over the road, but I didn't request it because the members of the NAM Team were involved in other projects.

I have a night render to post as promised.  Let me know what you guys think.



There's a problem, I don't see an avenue under the station ()what()
Or is it only a in-game preview without the rd-4 or ave-4 texture?

This is not the finished version.  There is now an RD-4 going through the station.

Starting to model the next platform.  Early stages be gentle!

So i reworked the top of the station since it didn't really accurately reflect how the real station looked.  Here are a couple preliminary images for a new station.

I think I have perfected my lighting rig for VRay night.  I love the soft shadows produced by Vrayshadow's area shadow map.  Here is a quick render (takes like 5 seconds its great!) of the platform with the tips lit up.  I promise to have more of the station soon :)

The implementation of this feature is amazing. It's very efficient, though only after learning how to use it.

I'm in love with the new El-Rail over Avenue/RD-4 pieces! So flexible! One question: Isn't there supposed to be a station for the El-Rail over Avenue? I only got Avenue over RD-4 station. Ah well, there maybe one in the final release or PR2.

Thanks! I am glad both of you like it so far.

The El-Rail-RD-4 station is the only station currently available. This is because the station building would not fit on the shoulders of the avenue network, but you can easily transition your avenue to a RD-4 for the purpose of placing a station.


By the way, for those of you who have not seen the video yet, here is the link again: [link]. It was made by Ganaram (GDO29Anagram) and shows how these new pieces work.

If you could provide more photos of the station I could look into it.  The thing about the avenue station is that the sidewalks are so narrow there is almost no room for the supports let alone stairs or anything else.  It can be done but would most likely be quite a bit out of scale/unrealistic.

This is another picture of Broadway Junction Station, in Brooklyn, NY. Yes, that is an El over Ave Station. KInda looks like a hot mess, doesn't it?

You are correct.  There currently is not a transition piece between EL-Rail Over AVE to GLR in Ave.  I find a piece like that is much needed so perhaps once i finish up a couple other projects I will look into making a piece like this for a future release.
