Volvo Olympian Graphics update
« on: January 23, 2014, 03:06:37 PM »
I do realise that the RH Olympian's graphics doesn't quite suit the other buses,
so here's an updated one.
However the pak that i made doesn't work on simutrans for some reason
can anyone help?

I'm a bit rusty with makeobj, but shouldn't the file names in your EmptyImage matches the name of the PNG?
ie: 
Code: [Select]
EmptyImage[E]=./images/RHVolvoOlympianupdated.0.0

Well, the dat file points to an images\RHVolvoOlympian.png file. Yours is now called RHVolvoOlympianUpdated.png. In your file system it should either be called RHVolvoOlympian.png or you should change the dat file.

The easiest thing to do is to name your new image the same as the old one and try it using the old .dat file. If it does not work then, then the issue will need to be investigated further. Incidentally, did you use Blender to create this graphic? If so, it would be helpful if you could update your .blend file to allow others to make changes (for example, by adding other liveries, adapting it into another, similar 'bus, or changing the scale) later.

Thank you for your work on this!

This is, unfortunately, not blender made graphics..
However I'm learning the mapping skills to make class 150/2s with various liveries (Arrivas, Merseyrail etc).
Although the original Regional Railways livery of the 150/1 is not mapped on, the blue lines are separated objects,
which I've found some issues on working on that ???


The olympian works now. Thanks guys. Now some fine tuning..

P.S. The graphics for the150/2 is attached below
