    Default Nice to be able to report something positive

    Sometimes it is desirable to be able to edit a locomotive's .geopcdx file to change LODs or even some texture names.

    With Rail Simulator this was possible using RS_Tools or Serz.exe but although you could uncompress the steam loco .geopcdx files, you could not recompress them after editing. I did report this to RS at the time but was told 'You are not supposed to alter the .geopcdx file, so this is not a bug'.

    Fortunately, someone must have agreed with me, because the new Serz.exe which ships with RailWorks now correctly uncompresses/recompresses locos like the Black 5.

    To use this with RW_Tools, it is probably easiest just to copy Serz.exe and msvcp71.dll into the same folder as RW_Tools.exe. This always seems to work, whereas copying it into the System folders for various operating systems means pointing to different folders each time and tends to confuse some users.

    It's a good start, now to figure out what the datablocks are so we can fiddlediddle with the shapes.

    I still haven't found what sets the default ground height offset or orientation so I can loft some of the unlofted bridge sections.
