    Default Lets Talk Metro North M8s

    Hey fellas,

    Its been more than a long time since I have been on here. So I just downloaded the metro north route a few days ago and its really great. I have a few ideas for getting a M8 released. Essentially it involves modifying the main body shape of my LIRR M7 (that I was never able to get working in the game) and then re texturing it and adding an under body. I need help with this project (and my other ones). I have been working on these projects maybe 1 day a month, progress is just way too slow to try to finish these things on my own. With college and working 3 jobs I just don't have the time. So basically depending on the level of interest in helping out with this project (and my other ones) we can get this stuff released. Please let me know if interested.

    Not to derail this thread (no pun intended), but are these the types of cars that were involved in the derailment/collision in CT last week?
    Don't tell me the sky's the limit, when there's footsteps on the moon..

    Your best bet would be to partner up with kurras railroads as he is also working on the same project. Bet you two could also get some subway stock going.

    Well it really does not make a difference because I could export to a format that can be imported in Gmax

    Basically yesterday I took the time out to start over with the M7 body and rebuild it. I hope to be done with all the modeling by today and have just texturing to do. I am building it 100 times better than the last 2 times. It is also going to be a lot easier to modify it into a M8 and M7A
