Good scenario with intense movement around Portsmouth area. It’s good that you use old 421/423 models – it helps to keep FPS at a decent level. Problems: 1) Timings should be added to tasks between Guildford and Portsmouth Harbour to avoid long waiting at red before Fratton (when I see no timings I drive at maximum speed to avoid delays); 2) Two signals before Portsmouth Harbour (HT67 & HT495) are still red even the way is clear already – player should receive a tip to TAB them; 3)Same for HT488 when departing Portsmouth Harbour; 4) I don’t know for sure, but service between Portsmouth Harbour and Fratton should have a headcode 5G23 – so player should have an opportunity to register CSR correctly – you can use last coach number to do this; 5) Signal HT23 wich protects Fratton depot is red and cannot be TABbed – player should receive a tip to pass it at danger; 6) Points at Fratton depot must be set mannualy to successfully complete scenario – no message about it. Hope this tips will help you make scenarios even better. Good luck!
Nice run! Any plans to make anymore CEP scenarios? We need more!
Thanks very much! I’ve got another CEP scenario in mind for Southampton to Bournemouth.
