The link is working again.

It appears to be the Channel Tunnel and possibly the track in the area near the tunnel itself.

Basically a 30 ish mile run thru a single track tunnel.

I don't think he meant it in a nasty way,but as a piece of constructive criticism I'd say that a little bit more detail in the 3rd screenshot in particular,even if it's not 100% accurate (a few trees for instance) would enhance the scene. I think it's very encouraging that a developer has finally got the courage to do the Tunnel.

The areas to the left of the second screenshot would also benefit from some detail,again it doesn't need to be overly accurate,just something to give the driver a feeling that they are actually somewhere,and not in a field,as that's the impression it currently gives.

Again that's constructive criticism and I applaud the efforts BC have made in making this route.

You can get it again. Requires a bit of extra DLC though some payware and freeware.

I won't rise to your bait because it wasn't meant in a nasty way. As Almark says it could do with a bit more filling in scenery wise , I would personally find it more appealing if it went a bit further afield rather than just a drive through a tunnel, imo. :)

To be fair to the developer it does say in the 'read me' that can be downloaded with the route that it is not 100% complete and that there are inaccuracies etc, that will be corrected at a later date as the route is progressed towards completion.

Yes, but unlike yourself people might not know how far from the tunnel the route goes - as the Class 92 is shown does it go to Calais freight yard?

Not a criticism but a comment as there was not much info on the website.

All the questions would be answered if somebody downloaded and installed the route---I'd do it myself but i'm not at home.

. . . and if you're NOT downloading and trying it, I'm not sure why you are interested in commenting or speculating, LOL!
