Thread: Issue with Dash 9 locomotives

    Default Issue with Dash 9 locomotives

    There are a lot of great reskins of the RSC Dash 9 engine but there is a problem with the reskins and on going issue that has prevented me from getting any of the great Dash 9 reskins and the problem is this crazy rule that BNSF livery items can't be sold outside of the US. This is a big issue because being that I am from Canada and the original Dash 9 from RSC is in BNSF livery I will never be able to get this payware and thus will never get to use any of the great reskins because they all require the original Dash 9 payware from RSC. Actually through Steam I don't think the Dash 9 is even available any longer. So we need to figure out a way for people outside of the US to be able to get the Dash 9 so we can get some reskins, like for instance I would love the CN reskin but it will never happen. This goes for the SD70-2 Pack from RSC 4 liveries including a CN livery, but because there is a BNSF livery I can't acquire it. Sorry if I came across as venting it's just frustrating that I can't get great locomotives because they're paired to a BNSF locomotive.

    This is a off the wall crazy idea and not even sure it'll work.... All you need are the shape files right? If you got a ROW RSC Dash 9 that's a BNSF model, your might be able to still put the shape file(s) in the repaint folder. I thinks it's reading the textures from what's enclosed in those repaint files. Worst case is you might have to use RW tools and do some editing involving renaming files. Again, I don't know if this will remotely work and I won't feel the least bit hurt if I get laughed out the galaxy. If by chance it does work, (BIG IF) then you might be able to do the same with the SD70 packs. There are logo patches for ROW engines for Santa Fe but don't know of any for BNSF.
