Quote from: RippleJet on May 26, 2009, 01:35:25 PMOk, let me know if these work as anticipated...Two replacement options (both textures made by rivit) are attached for the ingame steam engine:German Class DB23 2-6-2German Class DB41 2-8-2In addition to those two, I'm also reuploading the replacement for the ingame diesel freight train.The file that was attached to my first post above was lacking one important S3D file... Thus, ingame diesel engine replaced by (texture made by i-photon):BNSF GE Dash9 44CW

Dragonsteincole has also been knocking it out of the park recently, especially if you are interested in UK rolling stock (I am ).

I'm honestly not sure if you can do this for just the Steam Engine, since the trucks/wagons would likely remain, only now without a train pulling them.Rather than suppress all of this, I prefer to change the models to more modern engines. Until recently I was using SE (Steam Engine Replacements) from Vester, which include various US freight engines among his content.A good way to replace the wagons is using this mod by Jim, it also includes the files to suppress the Maxis stuff, you could just use that if you wanted to. But it has excellent quality replacement wagons, a few mods do similar things with different models of course. Likewise for the Engines and all SC4 Automata, plenty of replacements exist for all sorts of time periods and places.One useful thing, if you have the official Maxis DLC for the Air Force Base, you'll probably want this fix too, to make sure no Steam engines can appear.As for the RRW Catenaries by Rivit, do note that it just provides the mechanism to place them on the RRW. You need to have this file installed which contains the actual models (catenaries) themselves. Rivit's mod is not 100% complete, but does cover all the base content and is probably the most complete such mod for RRW out there.
Quote from: mgb204 on April 13, 2023, 02:09:22 PMAfter you added the Catenary files, did you click around to refresh the Rail network and show the props? Because T21 mods only add to networks if they are present when it is built. So if you added this later, you will need to refresh everything to get them to show.
