I've played simutrans for a few years, and I just made my first addons.
they are the locomotive and the cab car for the Sounder commuter rail service in Seattle USA.

thanks!

Looks like quite a good representation of the real world train :)

thank you for your encouraging comments :)
I recently finished work on the coaches, and as a joke, I made a fictional EMU variant.
I also attached a zip of the whole thing. it would be great if you could try it and let me know what you think :)

(for some reason it won't work on some of the earlier versions of simutrans... probably because I used the latest makeobj.exe..? I'm not sure to be honest)

Simple :) You want to browse the release announcement board, find the relevant game version and get makeobj that was released with it.

I think the diagonal image would look better if the gangway is coloured in a bit darker colour.
Looking at prototype photos, the gangway looks grey.

In general, trains look better with clear borders beween carriages in my opinion.

Mr.Yoshi

thank you very much for your advice. I have made a few changes including making the "length" 9.
please take a look and tell me what you think :) thank you!

btw, I used to play pak128.japan. it was great! thanks for creating such a great pak set. I really look forward to making a pak128.USA sometime in the future.
