Re: Promontory Stuff

Andrew reminded me that the early CP cars were a bit redder than the later cars; switching to more of a brown around 1868. So, I repainted the boxes, added an even earlier box with block lettering, and added a set of later boxes in the brown. Here's the early box; all cars are now on the DLS. cp_red...

Re: Dev tools

I'm using Blender for modeling, Substance Painter and Paint Shop Pro for textures, and Notepad++ for scripting The only downside with Blender is that in Cycles, the texture parameters don't get exported. You need to export with a Blender renderer material - and the Blender renderer is no longer pres...

Re: Issues with 60Ib track and more for Trainz 2010
