    Hi Folks,

    One more (it also demonstrates how much we lack in content compared to some other sims):


    More NYC Hudsons on the Hudson

    Wow, I didn't realize Trainz could look that good nowdays, haven't tried it since 2008ish!

    I'm away working during the weekend, but I'll hopefully post some new screenshots next week.

    Hi...

    Yeah - the vids are from six years ago as well. Pretty impressive route but I've only seen these videos of it. I've tried Trainz before - what keeps me away is all the scenery popping and the poor physics.

    Aside from being one of the three last "active" North American steam locomotive builders left in our community - textures are my thing - if you need any custom terrtex or seamless tiles - I'm pretty handy with that stuff. Just give me a shout. I'd suggest 1024x1024 terrtex tiles for adequate detail.

    Looking forward to your shots...


    Regards,
    Scott

    Thee route looks pretty nice, I like the details like wires on the telegraph poles, which is missing in many old MSTS routes. Their equipment doesn't look that good, passenger cars are really bad and the steam loco is mediocre. Just my two cents

    Hi Jim,

    Always nice to see you around...

    Trainz brings our BIGGEST shortcoming in the ORTS/MSTS route development world to the forefront - the lack of "splines". Those magic little shapes like telegraph poles, sidewalks, roads, fences, power lines, and even foliage - that with a series of clicks stretches as long as you want - magically traversing up and down the terrain all by itself. You can create miles of the stuff with a few clicks - even with wires attached. Talk about speeding up route development !!! It seems to accomplish "splines" in ORTS - Goku and the ORTS Development Team needs to work together - and for whatever reason that seems unlikely.

    LOL - yeah - hah - same thoughts on the locomotive - not to toot my own horn - hah - been itch'n to build a proper NYC steam locomotive for years - but without a good route to run it on - I thought it rather pointless.


    It would probably be one of these:

    A Mohawk would be awesome but like Scott said without a route why bother. The detailing on it would be a huge undertaking. Hopefully this route will appear. In the meantime I guess I'll just enjoy my Lionel version.

    That is absolutely interesting!

    Drop me a private message if you'd like to send them over.
