      Great stuff guys. I thank you ahead of time for your time and efforts, and for whatever trickles out the community. Would be nice to simply copy/paste new and improved versions of old crud.

        And... you know... I wrote done the wrong dimension values in my notes for the apartment replacement... so everything I said about size was wrong. So... we have a new "small building"... and I still need to make a replacement for apartment.s. DOH! (how wrong? Shift a decimal point left into all the numbers wrong)

          I thought it looked a bit on the small side. But I'm sure another building can be found that it's a decent match for.

          I thought about making a billboard for OR, but it looks like you beat me to the billboard bit. Barring a better idea, though, I plan on putting MSTS on the gravestones if I make them

            Well, I'm *not* modeling with anything but using MSTS/ORTS on a reasonably modern gaming PC in mind. For example: Something that has a 3G Video Card maybe in the 10 series range (circa 2015 or so) and something from a similar era like a AMD FX 8320... also from that time frame.... so... I'm not restricting myself to anything remotely close to what the original authors were.

                Hi Travis,

                I found one shape that the signal heads are not oriented correctly in your archive.

                US2Signal2.s The signal heads are at angles instead of straight ahead down the tracks?


                Maybe some of these earlier offerings would be able to be incorporated into this project?

                First up,

                MSTS Replacement Default Row Houses. A package of three generic row houses designed to replace and overwrite the default shapes "House1.s" to "House3.s" introduced in the original simulator, and used by countless authors in many other freeware routes over the years since. These houses were designed to match the size and orientation of the originals, but are built to modern MSTS standards to improve their overall appearance. All come with night and snow textures as well. Read the readme file for further details. Created by Ted Kocyla.

                  US2Signal2 and -3 are intended to represent old searchlights that were taken out of service and turned away from the track, since the original shapes were never functional anyway (all the functioning shapes of the US2 signal system are modeled in working order).

                  As for those other packs, I'll have to take a look and see whether that's allowed for

                    So. I did a quick mock-up of the ACTUAL size of the building... and yeah... size matters.

                            So... yeah, the "Apartment" is more like a big 'downtown' office building.

                                This was my stab at barn1 I did a few weeks ago. Not sure about the roof texture, in particular, but there's still plenty of time to fix that
