    Default Beast of Burden

    Hi Folks,

    Just some progress pix...

    Been hitting this pretty hard lately - she's getting there... Still more texturing (as always) and some (but not a lot) of model work - a little more piping needed - and tender frame needs to be rebuilt - then some LOD's... Getting close though - LOL - a very long time in the making... Will be strictly ORTS as it's ENG/WAG files will be native ORTS... She has the tractive effort of a Heavy 2-10-2 Santa Fe...








    Regards,
    Scott

    Now there's a brute of a Consol!

    Nice work, Scott!

    It's big boiler sort of reminds me of the North Arkansas' 40 Class ex-NYC Consols.

    Hi Folks,

    Thanks for the feedback - gents...

    Yeah - much of the latest work is not obvious in the renders - many new mappings to optimize draw calls for efficiency - has all the new ORTS effects - baking texture shadows - came up with this new technique to paint rivets (the cab is covered in them) that looks pretty darn good if I do say so myself - completely new physics - etc etc etc...

    I have it mind to attempt to morph this into a USRA 2-8-2 Mikado when done - recycling as much of the model and textures as I can - should be able to do that on the cheap - and cover a much more widely distributed locomotive... Rutland, Monon, and B&O for starters - to cover routes that I currently enjoy...

    Regards,
    Scott

    Looks great Scott - steamers are so much more intricate than diesels... I can't even imagine...

    Hi Kyle,

    Thanks... Each has their own unique challenges - steam locomotives have the running gear but most of the shapes are pretty simple - diesels can have shapes with real complex curves that take a different kind of modeling... Watching your progress - you certainly have the shape manipulation part down...

    Regards,
    Scott

    Hi Folks,

    Playing around with videos with ORTS so this is a video progress report:

    Rebuilt much of the tender - the work list is finally winding down - a few things left - then I'm down to LOD's, weathering, and texture detailing...

    The fine sounds are all Derek and Brandon's work - they really add so much to the model...



    Regards,
    Scott

    Really nice. Really moving too. Love to find time to get a few B&O E-27s done, someday. Not the 2-8-0 brutes you model, but nice haulers. They were all over the B&O system till the end of steam.
