Is there any SIR release for openbve? Im talking about the main line between st george to tottenville. If so, where can i
download it? Thanks.

In October 2021 multiplayer was confirmed in development. We expected it to be released under certain conditions for late 2021. As OBND entered its  final clean up phase for Multiplayer known as phase 1 we are expecting to begin running tests on the program this November/December before  public test with the servers become available.


Starting December 2021 OBND is brining to a close roleplay (pseudo) runs. We are bringing the old method of doing those types of events to an end as we begin to transition over into "Official Multiplayer". The final roleplay psuedo event will be marked as TBA and scheduled to be held sometime in December 2021 before the first official multiplayer run.

School Car Multiplayer Academy beings December 1st 2021!

All members who wish to continue participating in OBND official events MUST COMPLETE THE MANDATORY "OBND School Car Training" and pass the test given. If you do not want to take the test or participate in our events you are welcomed to do so. Members who don't take the test will not be allowed to join us in any event until another class/exam date becomes available [NO EXCEPTIONS].

Start date for school car: November 26, 2021
End Date: December 4th, 2021
Test Date: TBA [To be announced]
Location: [Virtual] Teamspeak 3 Server/Zoom Meeting

In this class you will be learning
1. Proper communication

3. OBND Rules and Regulations
4. Train operation procedures
5. Troubleshooting
6. And more

Classes are opened to all members of OBND who were not banned from the group. The test will be given within the dates specified. During this time you will be able to use the multiplayer for training purposes. If you fail the exam the next one exam date will be in 2022 and you will not be allowed to participate in Decembers run if you fail.

[Subjected to edits/revisions as necessary]
Good day all members of the OBND community today we are posting a job below for all members who would like to participate. Please read and follow the instructions below for how to apply to the job and good luck!

OBND Dispatcher
The Coordination Team is looking to recruit 10 dispatchers or more and have them qualified by the end of year and on standby to help us move trains within a multiplayer session. The multiplayer session is known as "runs". Runs are known as roleplay multiplayer events, we use a dispatchers sheet and Teamspeak 3 to communicate with trains to track their location and enter that information into a spreadsheet to prevent a collision known as a derailment. Once a derailment happens dispatcher will investigate and work with the administration team to determine the cause of the said accident and implement proper rules/training procedures to prevent these issues.

Dispatcher Training will be done in 2 Sections:

Roleplay Training: While doing roleplay training you will learn the following: How to use the dispatchers sheet, setting up trains, technical troubleshooting and communication. While doing roleplay training you will eliminate the time spent in the next class learning how to do the basics. There is no test needed for RP training.

Official MP Training: Runs the future will be done via a dispatchers board and the dispatchers sheet for future runs we need all dispatchers qualified. Once a dispatchers qualified the roles below listed will be assigned per session as follows.


Lead Dispatcher/Superintendent: Are the main commanders in charge of the session, their job is to make sure the run is set up correctly and being performed as per OBND Rules.
Local Tower: Local Tower will be in charge of 1 borough [Bronx,Manhattan,Brooklyn and Queens]. They will be in charge of supervising all trains in their jurisdiction. Towers will be in charge of assisting trains with issues, keying out signals, instructing trains to bypass stations and assist with other problems that occur within their jurisdiction.

Local Tower Assistant: Tower Assistants will be in charge of managing the run sheet, service advisory and communicating with other towers to ensure information is received and entered correctly to keep trains moving.

Rail Control Center: Rail Control Center is responsible for working with the lead dispatcher known as the "Superintendent" to ensure the entire session is moving forward smoothly. RCC will have higher authority over local towers for the run and will be in charge of overseeing and ensuring signaling and trains are following the rules n regulations.

We understand that dispatching trains is a lot of work and isn't meant for everyone. As we are recruiting new dispatchers to the team you will not be alone, we will work with you and have a qualified member working with you to prevent you from being lost.  Without dispatchers, planning a run is difficult and we often loose members or they end up disappointed that an event was cancelled. If you feel your up for this challenge and want to be apart of our dispatching team join us on discord and comment that your interested below! We hope to see you there!

(2) You need to have an understanding of how things work in openBVE as we only guide you and assist as far as you want to learn. If you dont know how to open train.dat files then this topic is a little advance for you my friend. Use train editor to open the train.dat file
When i open it up using train editor, it just says this
To further help you on editing the train cars lets use the R160 10 Car set as an example. Please note the following: (1) You should have extra copies of the files on hand incase something was to go wrong while you are working on it. (2) You need to have an understanding of how things work in openBVE as we only guide you and assist as far as you want to learn.

To edit your train you need to locate the following. The extension.cfg file located within your train folder and your train.dat file.

Once you have located those 2 files open the extension.cfg in a notepad or which ever software you use for editing regular text files. In the cfg file remove 2 of the trains. Then save it.
Open up train editor when you are finished and then locate the section on the top known as "properties" click on it and then look for "Number of MotorCars" once you located it reduce the number to 8. Save it and load BVE. Now you have 8 cars.

Look into the extensions.cfg and train.dat files, they define these physical compositions. I suggest looking at the official documentation for OpenBVE found here:


Keeping in mind that both files need to have defined the SAME amount of cars , or else you will get white boxes as carriages :)
How do i change the numbers of cars?
