    Donating.

    Hey, everyone! Long time no see! So let me get right to it... this has been a tough decision to make but I am going to make available (for free) some work that I did for SLI. It has been over 2 years since I have received payment for the work I completed. And my models continue to be used and re-used without the compensation that was agreed upon. Not trying to air out dirty laundry - just giving a back story and explain the reason for this. The stipulations of our agreement were that I maintain the rights to my work but SLI has the right to sell the work as well... So I am taking the work I did and giving it away. I'm not get paid anyway.

    I won't be uploading the files here though. Just PM me and let me know what you want! The files won't contain physics files or sounds. Just the model and textures.

    I will also be making available the work that I did for MSTS2 (that SLI is also currently selling without notifying me or compensation)... just need to get the models exported.

    I have no other recourse as my attempts to contact SLI has gone unanswered.
    Thanks and happy new year!

    And just so I am clear and to reiterate - I do have the rights to do with these models whatever I wish. I'm not saying SLI wasn't given permission to sell and redistribute them, I just have not been payed as agreed. And I am only offering the MSTS export files. Not source files.

          Glad you have decided to speak up on this Danny, maybe it will open many blind eyes we have towards them and their products. Glad to also see you are willing to work with the community on what they wish to get from you. Sorry to hear about the problems though of not being paid, that is selfish in so many ways while the rest make the money off YOUR hard work.

          btw, your PM box is full.

              Great to hear from you again Danny. We've all missed you, especially we SP fans! Honestly Danny, I can't figure out how you're so good at painting SP trains. I can't for the life of me paint them nearly as good as you!

              And don't worry Danny, you're not the only one.

                  Welcome back, Danny. As far as not getting replies back from the current SLI staff, that makes you and everyone else. It seems no emails to them get answered. A quick search through this forum and others will reveal the plethora of such unanswered emails. I imagine you're getting messages and emails by the boat load about now but would you happen to have a list of your offerings? I remember you once had a website with a large collection of photos of your models, but it seems to have disappeared.

                      Thanks for the link, Shawn. The rest of Danny's art is as amazing as his train models.

                        Danny,

                        I see you mention Railworks.....which is nice for some, but does that mean your done with new MSTS offerings?

                          Yeah I'm pretty well done with creating anything new for MSTS. Its capabilities are limited in terms of handling more detailed models. It's definitely a challenge to create compelling content for it but it just isn't as fancy. :P

                          I've gotten quite a lot of emails about my offer and it is gonna take a little time responding. If you have any requests for the older stuff - CR, BNSF, SP, SF, UP, etc. - I can get to those sooner as I already have the export files for those. There seems to be some debate about the MSTS2 content at the moment and it will take a little time getting them exported. Anything else I did (that was done for SLI) is fair game! So just let me know!

                            Hi Danny! I take it you haven't been paying attantion to Open Rails! The limitations that MSTS might have aren't present in OR, and unless I'm totally in the dark, OR will be THE primary train Simulator in the next few years. (Sorry Ottodad, I know you don't want to hear that! :-)

                              Hey Danny, what about a fare-well SP SD40M-2? Haha, I'm just kidding. (Not really, but sorta... lol)

                              I agree with Larry though as far as OR. Though, I must say if you move onto RW, I might have to start looking into that!
