    Default Railworks - 3d Modelling Program?

    Hi All!

    Railworks has me interested again! I haven't built a model for MSTS in about (I guess) almost two or three years now.

    So that being said, I'm looking at purchasing Railworks and then starting on my modelling again.....any idea what programs are being used to model?

    I'd love to resurrect my Olympian Hiawatha again.....and maybe some of the other projects I had on the go....

    Thanks!

    The only one I know of is Blender.

    3DsMax, 3DCanvas Pro, Blender.

    3DCanvas Pro, although $70, is a program I would recommend.
    Blender, although free, to some people can be difficult to learn.

    3DsMax, what the original devealopers used, and are still using, and the RailWorks Wiki is based around, is a bit more expensive. Unless, you are a student and you can get it for a bit less.

    I would recommend fiddling around with 3DCanvas (free version) and see how well it works for you.

    In the link below I have created a tutorial for blender which includes building a basic model, texturing ,exporting out of blender & importing into RS/RW. I have also included a texture for the model.

    The original idea was to make a tutorial thread but with 20 photos & step by step descriptions it was rather large, so i decided to make it a downloadable zip file for the people using dial-up or slow internet. If you have any problems please post it here, because some else may run into the same problem or if you have a better way of doing things let us know.
