It is certainly possible - you will need to produce a button graphic and a menuconf.tab entry. The process for doing this should be documented on the Wiki.

I'm not sure that I quite follow, I'm afraid - what do you mean by "without picture who declare it" here?

Ahh, do you mean that you need to see menuconf.tab itself, or the sources for the graphics? Pak128.Britain is open source, and you can find all of the sources on Github.

menuconf.tab is difficult to learn!  It took me a while...  I have some part-completed way graphics for narrow gauge I did a while back so perhaps I should get ahead and do the button myself.   But that would require me to draw some depots and trains as well.  Maybe a placeholder would do for now?

Perhaps you could upload your part-completed narrow gauge .blends somewhere (Github is a good place to put .blends - the best that I've found so far) so that Greenling and anyone else wanting to work on narrow gauge can start easily? It might be useful to upload all the way/station/boat .blends while you're at it.

Might I recommend that you use Blender? It's a free download. It's far easier to create graphics using Blender than it is to paint them. Also, The Hood and Kierongreen are very keen for Pak128.Britain to be graphically consistent, and it is very difficult indeed to make graphics that fit in with the rest of Pak128.Britain (with exactly the right lighting and shading) without Blender.

I will try to incorporate narrow gauge in the menus and upload existing graphics to SVN by the end of the week.  From there people can add their own things if they wish, but it won't be high up my to-do list (although I'd love to do it at some stage).  Any new graphics that people make which are consistent with the pak128.Britain style I will consider for inclusion in the official release.
