Like hundreds of others today, I watched the livestream of NEC: New York. It was a good time overall, but I jotted down a considerable amount of issues that I believe should be fixed. This list will be added upon once I get to play the route myself tomorrow. ABBREVIATIONS ADU = Aspect Display Unit MAS = Maximum Authorized Speed ATC = Automatic Train Control ISSUES NOTICED DURING LIVESTREAM City Sprinter Scenario Font on the ADU is incorrect, except "RESTRICT" looked okay. The aspects should all be capitalized and aligned to the center. The font color should be a lime green, not yellow. The font for the MAS shouldn't really be italicized. The ADU in New York to New Haven looked more accurate. The speed limit of No. 1 track does not drop to 35MPH until milepost 9. Dovetail Games had it drop from 70MPH to 35MPH at the west limits of "West Dock" interlocking (see 14:38 in the livestream). Milepost 9 is at 15:09 in the livestream. MAS showed as 34MPH when the MAS was actually 35MPH. This was around Newark Penn station. It was stuck at 34MPH for a long time. With MAS of 35MPH AND a signal of Approach Medium, the ADU should have shown 35MPH. Passed Approach signal at West Dock and ADU showed Clear. ADU should have shown Approach with MAS of 30MPH. (see 17:33 on livestream) Passed Medium Clear at East Dock and ADU showed Clear. ADU should have shown Approach Medium with MAS of 30MPH. (see 18:16 on livestream) 90MPH speed limit between Hudson and Swift is in the wrong place. 90MPH starts around the middle of the curve. The exact point of change is at New York milepost 7.7. Orange = 60MPH, Green = 90MPH. West limits Erie has a malformed signal aspect. Not lit on top head, amber on bottom. Cab signal showed Clear. (see 27:26 in livestream) Curve east of Bergen has 90MPH limit in game. 75MPH limit in real life. (see 29:50 in livestream) Missing signal at west limits ‘A’ interlocking. The signal is at the tunnel portal in real life, but there is no signal present in the route. (see 35:56 in livestream) Cab signals would flip a lot. Many times you would pass a fixed signal that was more restrictive and then the cab signal would just flip back to Clear. ATC alarm continues going off even after acknowledging and braking to conform with signal aspect. This happened a LOT. Just look at how Matt is struggling with it in the North River Tunnels around 32:00 in the livestream. Slow Approach signals appeared and they shouldn't have at all. There was no place for them. The ADU didn't conform either. ATC didn't enforce 15MPH. See 24:18 for an example of Slow Approach. Slow Approach is meant to be used when you are already slowed to 15MPH. In this case, the signal progression had him hitting Slow Approach at 45MPH. Time to Penalty counter on the ADU is inoperative (thanks to "pschlik" for reporting this!) ACSES braking curve is conflicting with ATC. When passing a Medium Clear, the MAS on the ADU should have shown 30MPH, but 34MPH was there. As the train got closer to the crossover where 30MPH applied, it finally started counting down from 34 to 30. (see 18:16 in livestream). Walking in New York Penn Station Malformed signal aspects. One particular signal I saw had both yellow and red illuminated on the top head. See 39:13 in the livestream. New Rochelle Service Signals at west limits of CP 216 (from the Hell Gate line perspective) are the wrong type. They should be the Metro-North signal type, not color position lights mounted on a gantry. See 1:26:41 in the livestream. Sunnyside Yard Some yard switch levers are missing. This appears to be on purpose. Use the following table to fix the cab signals. The cab signal should "conform" to the fixed wayside signal outside. This criticism is meant to be constructive, not aggressive or insulting. DTG has created a product with a lot of potential!
