Thread: Sli missing files

    Default Sli missing files

    how is one to use a repaint of a locomotive by just copying the original locomotive shape file into the repaint,,,,, when there IS NO S FILE to copy
    from the SLI BN FOLDER


    example
    pack of 4 Pennsylvania Railroad SD45's based off of Streamlines' BN SD45.

    This requires the Streamlines BN locomotive pack for the SD45 Shape File and Cabview Folder.

    INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:
    1. Unzip this download to a temporary file named PRR_SD45s, copy the 4 folders inside, PRR_6109, PRR_6155, PRR_6176, and PRR_6182, and place them in your TRAINSET directory of MSTS
    2. Copy the shape file BN_SD45_6476.s into each folder and rename it to what the .sd file is.
    3. Copy the CABVIEW folder and place it in each folder. Sound is aliased to the default SLI.BN folder.
    4. Make a consist and let 'er roll!

    Thanks to SLI for changing their policy on repaints!

    Wherever you got your SLI BN folder from is incomplete.

    Hi PENNSYFAN,
    This has nothing to do with SLI/TSN's repaint policy! I have the shape file so I suggest that you re-unpack your original download and try again! After all, if the shape really was missing, the original loco could not have been used!!

    Cheers,
    Ged

    You can get BN 6476 from the Danny Beck files right here in the file library

    From the screen grab of your folder, it looks like the S file is a text file like the ENG or SD.

    The name should be PRR_SD45_6109.txt if uncompressed, or PRR_SD45_6109.s if compressed.

    It looks like you have a PRR_SD45_6109.s.txt
