Re: British Trains beta release

Quick question: It appears that only a convoy of the same type can be added to the existing one in the depot, so is there any way to modify the convoys from the British train pack so some of the more unusual workings can be reproduced?

For example, the odd class 150 makes it down to Portsmouth Harbour from Cardiff Central attached onto a class 158, when this route is primarily 158s only, or (even more rarely) a 450 will be attached to a 444 on the early morning/late evening services to London Waterloo.

Can't wait for the next update! :D

That's a really good idea. Hopefully I'll find some time over the Christmas break to make that happen and upload the backlog.

Carl, have you got a regular and experimental update to this? I know theres a lot of new units in the save game but experimental broke for me so i'm using 120.0.1 for the time being but only like using the British Pak.

Also, for what its worth with your map, the canal way on the Japanese set you used as a base has got a lot of walk ways and station buildings you could use to beef up stations should you need. I don't know if you saw it but i thought it looked useful.

I have more units waiting to be finished off when I get time but a new job has gotten in the way!

With many apologies for the extreme delay, here's the updated version of the British Trains for Pak 64 release:


https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/61716/BritishTrains.rar

This should contain everything seen on the GB map, for both Standard and Experimental. Do let me know if there are any problems.


This is a full release now so I'll remove the unnecessary beta tag from the title of the thread.

So I was passing through Reading yesterday, and finally saw some of the FGW 166s sporting their smart new livery after their recent overhaul, and I've made an attempt to emulate it using Carl's wonderful 166 model as a template!

I know the 'Dynamic Lines' livery always garnered a bit of a polarised opinion, so I was wondering if anyone here has seen the new livery on the 166s, and if so, what their thoughts were?

Having worked for FCC i liked the Dynamic Lines and FG Livery. It looked professional. I've not seen the new FGW 166 but have seen the (IMO) rather ugly VTEC 225 livery on the ECML. Its red and wavy with two blue (that well known Virgin branded colour) bars running along the train just below the windows.

I agree with you there, there have been many good liveries on the ECML, but the most recent addition is not a favourite of mine!

Another repaint, this time attempting a FGW class 153. Once again, all credit to Carl for the original model!

I had hoped for a darker grey, white and perhaps yellow trim much like VTWC but alas. I wasn't too keen on the EC livery but it was acceptable if a little bland. GTR's new liveries seen on the 365's and i think will be stock on the 700's looks minimal but classy - kind of like the new Android version with simple shapes and only a few bold colours. I think both the 700 and the 800 would look good in First Group colours or perhaps a totally new livery.

That painting is a very good job!

Nice work Ali! I like the dynamic lines livery though it's pretty hard to recreate in just a few pixels.

Been toying with a new design for the SWT Desiro fleet (444 & 450), using the class 360GA as a template, let me know what you guys think!

Thanks Carl!

Sadly, however, I can't run makeobj on Mac, so I can't actually put any of the new skins into my game. Does anyone know a way around this?

Are you able to compile Makeobj from sources on your Mac?

Even a slightly older makeobj will work for almost any feature. I think there was one compiled until last year January by Werniman.

I've been working on this:
An FGW-liveried 142, from which they carried when they were based in Devon from 2008-2011.
Apologies for the fact it is rather crude, it's my first attempt and I don't have the steadiest of hands.
Full credit to Carl for the original model.

I can't post my train for 2 reasons:
1. I can't compile makeobj because...
2. DOSBox is being a pain.
I could send you the .png and the .dat files if you wish to compile them to .pak files, which would be some help, if you're interested I may give you a PM.

As it stands that PNG is the wrong shape. You need the square containing each image to be 64x64 pixels (or 128x128 for pak128). At the moment yours are 400x133.


I've attached an example you can use for reference. I recommend GIMP for editing, though many other tools are available!

Apologies for the mess of green, it was for trying to get the right shade of green.
