I just lost hope and feel like by emailing all these little problems I am in the minority and they wouldn't do anything anyway. Afterall i've not seen many posts from people noticing the problems I've picked up. Quite shocked really! It's really like there was no quality control.. or someone forgot.. or they just wanted a rushed release.
That's how I can explain the fact there are whistle boards included with the route but not used at all. Someone forgot or didn't get around to it in time?
GEML is the one route I've wanted in a Train Sim since I can remember so I am spending a lot of time on it. Since it's been out it's really pushed me to try new things.. Before GEML I could make just activities.. Now I am delving into the editor fixing these issues and have been doing repaints for future activities..
It does cause a bit of inner stress because I want to us these improvements in a future activity pack (filling the holes the first one left!) but I wonder if potential purchasers would be put off if it also installed a cloned version of the GEML route.
If anyone has noticed any weird issues on their journey's on GEML, let me know and i'll try get round fixing them.
Without folks like you, this sim wouldn't be as great as it is today. It's been said before that freeware devs care more about the end product than RSC do most of the time. Yes, you do get great products coming from them, but that isn't a guaranteed thing.
I honestly don't drive the roue myself, because I can see this wasn't properly finished off like it should have been. Floating objects, signals with wrong settings, people walking below he bridge and off the platforms. It just shows a product unfinished, and as good as it is, it's those small things that act against it being so great. Look at L2B, the only thing I could see missing are tunnels occlusions, and stop markers attached to trackworks.... Apart from that, it's still an insanely awesome route. That is why so many folks will choose L2B over GEML.
And it's downright sad that RSC will look past these things although many attempts are made by the community to help them out and do the work for them. they only have to implement and send out the patch. they can quickly release a patch to change all the old logo's, but can spend a week to update and fix problems and shortcomings that members of the community have picked up. It really is sad as it seems once something is released, that's the end of it, no further updates. Rolling stock as well...
Regardless of that, if a patch is released from you to fix the issues you have done so far, there will be hundreds of members that will download and enjoy it. Trust me on that one.
