Thread: Locomotives with 3d cabs?

    Question Locomotives with 3d cabs?

    Hi,

    Just got into Open Rails / MSTS, being disappointed from TSW, TS 20XX, Trainz.
    My biggest problem: The totally outdated 2d view, replaced in flightsims after MSTS release.
    My question: Which locomotives are there with 3d cab view (preferrable German, but does not really matter)? Where can I find them?
    Thanks.

    So far I have only seen 3D cabs for Russian locomotives in ORTS that are worth to mention.

    I prefer good, old 2D cabs, but those done using so called "photorealism" technique, where real photographs of locomotive cabs are used in the game itself.

    Default Locomotives with 3d cabs?

    Hi Folks,

    The most detailed one I’ve seen is a video of a Czech steamer - Derek’s little jewel of a CB&Q 4-6-0 over at Elvas has a very nice one as well... I think Erick Cantu is making them for his Soo GP diesels as well...

    Regards,
    Scott

    Since it is a new feature, there aren't many yet.

    I too prefer the 2d cabs. And those Borislav makes are excellent! Also look for Charlie Sjaaba (may have mispelled his name).

    Thank you very much, Conductorchris!

    Charlie's last name is Sibaja. Brad Bailey has also made several very nice cabs.

    A member names Ales also made some nice standard cab EMD cabs.
    I wish he would have pursued doing more, but he may have moved on.

    That is true. However, they all made their last uploads back in 2014.
