    It's hard to stay focused on just one idea!
    You said it!!! It's truly not easy.

    Thanks to Parker Boots for working on the Phase III & IV liveries. As you can see I am very close to tidying up the last few bits and pieces. Redid the plow, but still need to rebake the AO and fix a few things on the template. Very, very close. Almost all of my effort has moved inside to the 3D cab.

    Nicely done sir. Too bad GIMP didn't transfer some of the Layer effects I used. My fault for not knowing any better.

    I'll attach a screenshot from my export sometime tomorrow.

    Hi Strawberry Yogurt. I've noticed that the P32-ACDM Genesis in the photo is numbered 705, which is the same as one of the Genesis used in MSTS. In that case, are you going to make that one as either a stand-alone or an option to overwrite the default?

    These will be standalone units. The 705 is more of a coincidence than anything. I can't recall the exact number but the release later this week will have about 10 numbers/liveries for Amtrak, and a small number of Metro North painted engines.

    Thank you! There are certainly inefficiencies and general detail issues in certain places, but this model was created essentially a year ago when I knew a lot less. There are Amfleet IIs to accompany these locomotives and are built a lot better in many ways. I really enjoy honing my skills in a tangible way. The 3D cab is the real exciting part for me.

    I have an activity made and was waiting for your units to add to it....hopefully you'll have a phase IV paint scheme for the 1995 Southwest Chief making the dash across the Chillicothe Sub.

    Don't worry, he'll have a variety of liveries for you to choose from.
