I can't figure out how to do the shadows right on the hospital; disabling anti-alising entirely makes the entire complex off and contours are hazy. I assume they ought to be changed somehow, but to what? Can't figure out how to only disable antialising against the background...

Meanwhile, elsewhere:

Class 501 (these were fourth-rail units until 1971, when they were converted to third rail together with the rest of the LNWR system of the Watford DC lines).




And a Class 312 AC EMU (the graphics might stand in for 310 as well...)





And finally blue recolour of the 307 (this should be coded, I guess - if possible - as an upgrade to the 307, as it was by this time converted to an AC unit...)

Well if you look at render settings for vehicles they have antialiasing to background only disabled.

Thank you for doing those - they do look rather splendid. Would it be terribly tedious of me if I were to ask if you could produce earlier livery versions of the BR Class 501 and earlier/later livery versions of the BR Class 312? When I produce new rail vehicles myself, I generally try to make sure that they have a full set of liveries that they wore during their lifetimes. Many of the older EMUs have yet to have multiple liveries, but I am hoping that that will come soon. If you need any assistance with the slightly trickier NSE livery, please do let me know.

As to the 307 - this is an interesting conundrum. Although one might think on the face of it that one could have this as a separate upgrade to the existing class 307, using the replacer to upgrade a DC EMU to an AC EMU will not work, as they would be stuck as having no appropriate electrification as soon as they had finished being replaced. I think that the best approach is simply to use this as a new livery variant of the existing 307 but keep it as an overhead DC EMU (of which there are limited numbers in any event). The same might apply to the conversion of the 501 to third rail - again, it is best to keep it as a fourth rail unit for that reason, I think.

As to the hospital - I am not so much an expert in the shading of buildings, but anti-aliasing of some sort needs to be turned on. On the other hand, the hospital doesn't need a great deal of improvement anyway, aside from the suggestions that Kieron and I have made above.

FWIW, that's what diesels are for.

Add in diesels to the line
replace/upgrade convoys to different electrification
upgrade electrification
add replaced vehicles back into the line
retire diesels


in the real world, sometimes companies had to rent or lease diesels from other companies while they upgraded their electrification.

Jaffa Cake livery for the 410/11/12 - but only with the regular intermediate trailers (mk.1 coaching stock), as I don't think the buffet/restaurant cars ever had the livery. But I'm not sure if it is worth including.





Finalised hospital images; shadows and background antialising fixed.

East
North

West


By the way, if the 501 is fourth-rail, fourth-rail needs its maximum speed raised to 120km/h.

Ahh, very nice! Have you worked out what you have done differently here to what you had done before?

Edit: As to the jaffa cake livery, definitely worth including. Some units carried that livery for quite a number of years, I seem to recall.

You need to use the clouds texture with a white colour (80% V, 0% H and S) and an alpha blend on top of any existing texture on all upward facing external surfaces, and render it once with and once without those textures visible, the first being the snow and the second the non-snow image.

Incidentally, I haven't forgotten about this - I haven't had time to include anything other than the American style units yet, as I have been working on passenger generation. Would it be possible for you to make your .blends of these available? It would be most helpful.

Did you plan on making any further livery variants of any of the BR units, incidentally? I know that a number would have had green livery at some point, for example.

The .rar file seems to be missing the NSE variant of the 4-VEP (423); would you mind uploading that? It will be useful to have the NSE version to convert into SWT livery in due course.

I have, however, added your NSE livery and an all-over blue livery of the 4-VEP now to my Github repository.

it looks like you have the cooling tower, boiler, steam turbine and stack, so you would be lacking water reservoir and maybe precipitator and scrubber for the stack

and maybe a parking lot?

I agree with AEO - and possibly also some smaller huts for storing equipment, and perhaps a control room? Looking very good, though! We could very much do with a modern power station.

The grass? Hmm - I may have missed that. Are there specific fences in Pak128.Britain Standard? If so, I need to add them to Experimental, as I think that many players would appreciate that.

There aren't fences as such but power stations are usually surrounded by them... As for around ways etc that's something for another day.
