    Default RTS - Wed 02/06/13

    Scheduled to run 12 hours Wednesday 11:00 PST, 14:00 EST, 19:00 UT to 23:00 PST, 02:00 EST, 07:00 UT
    Server opened to Full RTS members (see website in signature for details)

    Though I've had a TS server up on 24/7 for the past month, I will be dispatching with it (same IP and password) since I found my mic
    TS IS OPTIONAL and I will monitor text as well
    Please use your initials both on TS/Run8(F1 Name option)

    Additional info/rules for those using my TeamSpeak server:
    Following are the channels being used
    Lobby
    BNSF Bakersfield Yard
    UP Bakersfield Yard
    Kern Jct to Bena
    Ilmon to Woodford
    Walong to Cable
    Cable Xover to Cameron
    UP Mojave Yard
    Mojave to Silt
    Boron to Barstow
    BNSF Barstow Yard

    Changing Channel Zones
    It is recommended that you set up a keybind in Teamspeak that allows you to change channels easily. Overlays are nice but are not required. For example I have CTRL-PGUP to move a channel up and CTRL-PGDN to move a channel down. If you look at the order of the channels they are set up in zones and with a few exceptions are often at the edge of the dispatch display. The purpose of these zones is to isolate chat and allow you to realistically hear people that are close to you. It also isolates dispatcher into towers.

    Acceptable use of TeamSpeak
    Because of the zones and probably less traffic you can get away with a FEW casual conversations. However please try to keep non-prototypical conversations to the Lobby channel or text chat only. It is recommended that you call signals that are not clear.

    Toning Dispatcher
    You will automatically have crew access when joining. In order to get my attention and in the proper channel you will be required to TONE the dispatcher to speak to me. This is achieved by using DMTF *54 on the radio in the cab. I will then come over to your tower. A text message is also sent where you are in the queue, please be patient.

    Any other trains can be spawned on advance notice. Some trains will also be available on the mainline for shorter runs or extra board etc.

    Looks like this is a GO for at least the 1st half of the day. I'll send a final message here instead of an email tomorrow but your trains will be spawned and ready for you.

    I will RUN and DISPATCH in DICTATORSHIP MODE probably until 15:00 PST 18:00 EST 01:00 UT unless something drastically changes. I'm also NOT going to change the password so it will be open for walk ins. Anyone already on the line will be good to go, and I'll try and keep my eye open for new stragglers once the session begins. Will not monitor internet during this time as well.

    If your looking for trains right off the bat I'll try and keep bidding open until Wednesday 10:30 PST 13:30 EST 18:30 UT

    Thanks

    Looks like this is a GO for at least the 1st half of the day.

    Trains bid first will be spawned first, following trains will be spawned immediately following.

    At this point I will RUN and DISPATCH in DICTATORSHIP MODE probably until 15:00 PST 18:00 EST 01:00 UT unless something changes in the next 36 hours or so (still available for 12 hours if some traffic is around). I'm also NOT going to change the password so it will be open for walk ins. Anyone already on the line will be good to go, and I'll try and keep my eye open for new stragglers once the session begins.

    P.S. if there is anyone not running a full run that would like their train moved ahead further down the line let me know and I can try to do that for you this evening. This isn't a requirement just opens up the traffic a little more at the terminals as it looks like things are heating up. I have relinquished my original train as well due to the 1st half volume.

    Well this tied for the biggest user peak at 13, but by far was the best 6 hours I've run to date. It's all back into anarchy 24/7 now but a few are still moving about. Got to admit the TS was much more realistic then I expected. I think putting everything into towers really enhanced the realism and it got so good reviews today. So yes I'll probably make this a Wednesday session for the rest of this month and early March. Also looking at doing a weekend session to work around the mega session that I'm anticipating will be announced by then.

    Thanks

    Sean
