    Default Anybody else use Paint Dot Net

    I started a little project back in March that needed some custom items.
    I started with Sketchup and got so far as to get the roof peak right.
    Then I rediscovered Paint Dot Net and started retexturing things from my hard drive.

    Here's one of the depots,

    After,

    And because the route had signals, they needed redone.

    I just getting started. This is a lot of fun.

    Show 'em if you got 'em.

    I haven't retextured much of anything, really, but paint.NET is my texturing go-to, and it does about anything I would ever need of it. I'm still learning new tricks in it. The noise tool, for one, is pretty useful

    A couple more.

    I also redid Hank's semaphores that came with the L&HR 1940 route,

    I did these before Travis released his excellent set of semaphores. I'll use both.

    The tower, track, cars, signals and signs have all been redone
    Lots of good images to use on the net. And the snipping tool makes it so easy.

    That's all for now,

    Here's a few more.

    I found this whistlepost in one of the RMD routes.
    It started out as CP_Whistlepost.
    I retextured it and made a yard limits sign too.

    I've always liked Jovet's switchstands on the Monon so I've included them in my route.

    This one was too much fun.

    The bullet holes go all the way through.

    Looks like I'm not the only one who sees a lot of signs with holes in them... Also, the lens on that one switchstand, that looks really good

    Thanks Travis,

    The texture for the lamp threw me for a loop.
    Seems the lamp ring colors are behind an alpha of the lens.

    Hmm...nice! I got a couple ratty old ones in the set, thanks to Northshore Mining not bothering with new signs out in the boonies. I may make an alternate texture with a more aged crossbuck in it, for routes where that's more common
