Good Lord what? A-Train on a controller? I cannot imagine that.I really wanted to like A-Train 9 but I refunded it because the controls and just overall user experience pissed me off to no end. And I'm usually very patient when it comes to stuff like that

>A-Train on a controller? I cannot imagine that.

Its really weird. It works better than I thought, but compared to a mouse it's still annoyingly fiddly. Worse, even on a Pro it cant really handle speeding up more than around 32x without completely shitting the bed. With lots going on even less.

>I really wanted to like A-Train 9 but I refunded it because the controls and just overall user experience pissed me off to no end.
Yeah, I came from PC-Classic and it still took me until the third time I pirated it and lots of desperate manual reading to get my head around it. It has grown a lot on me since, but I really hope 10 (implying thatll ever happen) will take over lots of elements from PC-Classic more than 9.

Full Steam Ahead is basically the ultimate documentary series on the early history of British railways.

The Train Now Departing is also a good one. It's pretty much a time capsule on the state of preservation in the 80s.

Was going to suggest the train now departing but you bear me to it.

Railway roundabout is pretty good, as are chris eden greens videos. I can't remember now to spell his name, but it's something like ruraidh mcveigh. He has some pretty in depth videos about trains and stuff.

Best one so far I think. Can't believe I've not heard about the Settle to Carlisle line before, I've done that stretch of the WCML so many times. It seems a really odd place considering how close it is, but I suppose back then they were all competing, and B**ching couldn't close it because of its architectural significance.

I'll have to do that next time I go to the midlands, probably take the long way around to Manchester or something.

>Knowing when to shift gears, knowing what cadence to ride in so your muscles don't get too tired, knowing when to walk your bike, there could be a lot of stuff going on.
Not as interesting as you imagine, when you're not actually feeling it in your own muscles. In a game that would either take entirely too much guess work, or it would just be what amounts balancing a bunch of status bars.

If you think you can make the latter fun, it shouldn't bee too much work to hack together a proof of concept prototype.

Mechwarrior famously uses heat generation as a limiting factor for your offensive capabilities. Weapons generate heat, you can only dissipate so much heat so fast, so you can't generally fire every single weapon at an enemy repeatedly, you need to stagger your shots so you don't overheat your battlemech and force a core shutdown.

Similarly, there could be a watt meter in the bicycle simulator video game and an endurance meter modelling lactic acid production/removal and you could be tasked with keeping these meters in check while simultaneously going as fast as possible.

Couple that with taking the correct line on corners, avoiding obstacles, bike messenger fetch quests, I dunno. It could be fun.

GTA V did a simplistic version of this.

I would disagree. For me, the entire point of owning a motorcycle is so I can ride a motorcycle. The point of riding a motorcycle is going fast while stimulating the inner ear, and also being able to filter through traffic.
The vroomvroom is just an annoyance. The quiter the better.

The funniest busride I ever had was in Kazakhstan when visiting some relatives. There were four busses on the same line and they were racing each other to each stop, all trying to cut each other off and parking in front of everyone and shit.
Halfway through the trip the driver of the bus I was on was just like "Fuck it my shift is done everyone get off and get in one of the other ones"

Granted I wouldn't want this to be the everyday MO but still.

If you don’t want to risk lying on the medical, it is possible but it’s a pain in the ass.

I took Adderall and had an ADHD diagnosis in high school. I got declined my first time I tried to get the medical. To get it, I had to get a letter from a doctor saying I wasn’t taking the medication anymore, wait several months, take a drug test proving I wasn’t on Adderall/Ritalin, and spend two days with a psychiatrist at my own expense running though a dozen mental tests. The time with the psychiatrist was thousands of dollars.

I made it though, and I fly for the airlines now.
>>
>>1494103
There is literally zero risk in lying, just don’t test positive for drugs.
>>
>>1494159
THIS. I haven't had a scrip for adderall in 10 years, yet I still passed my medical because I wasn't outright asked if I had ADHD. Shit, I wasn't even indirectly asked. My AME just asked if I was on any prescription meds and I said no, because it was the truth. Anyone who has it should more or less be fine on their medical if they haven't had addy's in ~10 years.

Oh no you definitely lied. "Mental illness" is on the medxpress forum you fill out before the exam

>>1494159
While you are right I want to correct something. Its not "literally" zero risk. There is risk. its VERY small risk but its there. Even if you get in an accident unless it was in a 777 and 70 peopled died they don't look that deep into your past.
You WILL get caught if you do something stupid. I dont have the link but a while ago some guy got busted for lying on his medical because he was also receiving disability from the VA. lol.
>>
>>1494937
Most issues like you've described are from VA disability. When you separate from the military, most guys in their last year of service "suddenly" get alot of health issues that the gov't has to pay them for, hearing loss, sleep apnea, arthritis , etc and there are benefits to claiming these things. Problem is for guys who fly, the VA and the FAA actually talk to each other, which is abnormal for the gov't, but they do. So if your VA disability is disqualifying for a medical, you're fucked. If your disability makes getting a medical more difficult, you're paying out the ass now to recieve/renew your medical. This is fairly common knowledge now for military flight crew who separate because of how widespread people have gotten fucked in the past, but yes it does happen.

Are the trams' bogies the exact distance apart of the two curved segments of rail?

If you put the forward bogie onto the straight track, then moved the switch and put the rear bogie onto the curving track, it would be possible for the tram to translate from the gauntlet to the separated track (and vice versa) without the carriage body rotating. It would be facing forward the whole way. That might be useful if the clearance was originally extremely narrow and the overhang on the ends of the tram would have hit a wall or something.
