I've discovered I love powerfull diesel engines, so I've decided to make some of them. I start with the german diesel engine Vossloh G2000 "ACT".  It's a long vehicle (length=12) with 2700 kw, 86 tn and a running cost of 17cr.

Another diesel engine, this time from UK. It's British Rail Class 40 D200. It's a long engine (it takes a single square) with 1490 kw of power, 140 km/h max. speed, 135 tn from 1958 to 1987.

I'm finishing a set of USA GE Dash 8-40C Diesel engines with different liveries.

Quite nice, vilvoh.

Will you code them to appear in the usual US arrangement?

just linking because of huge pic size, get the idea below:

Oh, wait! I've been toying around, they're very nice! You've got to introduce me to your 3d to pixel methods.



Doing that test makes me wonder if diagonal (NE, NW, SE and SW) lengths have been corrected. Well, it doesn't really, it shows! :·) No more 3d distorting to get right sizes!


vilvoh

Well, I tried to use the right scale but as you have pointed out, in real life the engines are pretty large, thus I guess I will code them with a length of 11 units. IRRC, the previous engines are coded with the same length, too.

An alternative solution to make it longer would be to divide it into two parts, instead of a single one. I have already use this technique with some trains like the ETR 300 Setebello and the Mtab LKAB IORE 100x series

No, I think I expressed myself badly here, sorry.

That diesel there is overlapping itself, that diesel was made by me a looong time ago, with a distorted (elongated) side view so that there would be no gaps between wagons. This was because on diagonal tracks trains where (inside the game) longer than they should.

Now it would seem that this is corrected, so nothing to worry about.

It hasn't been completly corrected as sometimes, with large vehicles, the overlapping still persists, specially when a large train is arriving to a station. Anyway, that's because we don't heed of Prissi's advices about not to paint so long vehicles.. ::)

You can bump this topic again and again, but it won't make him return.

Ah, and it's kind of spam.
