That train..

#1Duddridge1Posted 3/24/2014 5:52:55 PM
Almost everytime I'm delivering a High Priority Vehicle to Simeon and about drive over the tracks in a certain area the barriers come down and the train passes, the first time this happened I thought it was just good timing but after a few times I was seeing a pattern, now it happens almost every single time where now I see the tracks and accelerate over them to avoid having to stop for the barriers..

Is this to make players stop so other players have a chance to take the HPV because I'm pretty sure it's not a coincidence.

The train used to always pass by when I was getting my car from the impound lot

I always get the train too. I make sure I'm going quick enough when I get close to the tracks to get by before the gate comes down. I have had the gate hit the top of my vehicle, but Simeon didn't look at the top of the truck so I still got full price.

Trains are like all other vehicles in that they only spawn close to you. I don't know exactly what their spawning mechanics are, I've never noticed consistent train spawns like that.

That's one of my theories but it doesn't always spawn, I delivered a car to Simeon today and the barriers didn't ring or move at all.

I almost always get that when I'm delivering any vehicle to the docks, whether they're in the text list or a HPV. It's pretty common for me to get my roof scratched on the second barrier, which is irritating because I usually get it there spotless.

Does that mean there can be more than 1 train?

That would be a good experiment for two people to try. I think there is because even though the engine doesn't change, the cars behind it do.
