    Large Dump Truck w/Blender Source

    Greetings!

    I had to take a brief detour from route building to learn some 3D modeling. To that end, I present you with a large mining dump truck model, along with four payload models, along with the Blender source. It is hoped an end-to-end working model might lure would-be modelers into the wild, and show that once you get the pipeline working, you can really focus on your Art. Before June 1 of this year, I had never opened Blender.

    For the seasoned modelers, it should be quite clear I know just enough to be dangerous. I prepared a detailed publishing guide that makes many assumptions based on an incomplete understanding of the process. It is also hoped that comments and questions might lead us to a more complete set of instructions such that some final version of it might be enshrined.

    I have many more models in mind...a front end loader...cement works with cement trucks...conventional dump trucks...a back-hoe...I am going to learn Blender Bones and make some trial animations of hydraulics. Now THAT would make a nice tutorial!

    This is all in support of my route, Panamint Crossing, in which the vast majority of the track has been laid.

    Nice truck! Hope you can find time to do a Greyhound ScenicCruiser bus from the 60s-70s!
    Happy holidays.

        Thanks, Marioth, but it seems to be for MSTS only, can't get it into RW3.

          Rich, I have never used MSTS. I use TS2012 only. What specific issue are you having?

            Sorry, my error, it works fine in RW3! Much thanks for this bus.

              I think that the naming of the two simulators being very similar now is going to create some confusion.

              MSTS = Microsoft TrainSimulator and RailWorks = TrainSimulator 2012 (both are called TrainSimulator now)
