Paint Scheme Randomization
« on: April 05, 2012, 02:40:52 PM »
I'm curious as to if it's possible to put in a feature that randomizes the schemes of purchased vehicles.

I.E. If I purchase a normally "player color 1" car, it could sometimes show up as brown, grey, player color 2, or some other color that frieght cars normally are etc. An addition to this would be "player color 1" could change to another color and "player color 2" could change to a different color. Ideally this would only apply to freight cars.

If anyone has noticed my PakUS (or would it be Pak.64USA?) there are usually a few schemes of each type of car. For instance there are 6 different graphics for the 40' tankcar. If it could pick one of the 6 at random for each car purchased That would be awesome. Although it might get a bit trickier when cars have containers or trailers on them that only show when loaded, and the containers or trailers are different. A case of this would be my intermodal flat that has 13 loaded variations, but only 1 graphic for empty.
