Good to hear that you love it.

Haven't got any progress on the older passenger cars to show, but here is a little something new on the way:


A lot of reuse of the textures from the passenger engines, but with a little change here and there. Colors amongst other things.
You will be able to use these with the trains from the other freight engine package.

Thank you both. Glad you like it.

Here is a little something I been working on lately.

Please note that some of the surfaces will be "carved" out with the help of alphas.
Also I have been looking into some older work that it will fit well with...

Thank you Simcoug.

Been working some more on the model:


The blue areas is going to be open railing / pipe railing. There is still a few things I want to correct on the model.
Later on I will try to maybe add a few passegners, but lets see if it looks good.

Good to see work still progressing on the ferries.

Will these just be a re-skin of the in-game ferry or could they also be released as a prop to place in the rivers and harbours and so on?

Loving the new ferry design. It's a sadly overlooked element of the game. I may try to incorporate more of them in to my region in the future here.

Wow, good looking ferries you have here  &apls &apls &apls

Well i hope in the future you can take Hong Kong train automatas like a request or something like that, but no like that, of course, if you have the time. Don't take this like a request, just hope in the future to see some ones like inspiration or something like that. Here is one pictures:

Thank you Emanuel.

Back working on the Shinkansen 700:

Still need to do the textures on the box around the pantograph.

The polycount is way lower than on Moonlinghts version of it.

From 2824 triangles to 809 for the models seen it the pictures.

Ty Aaron

Here is another one, Shinkansen E1:


Been playing around with render to textures. The low poly model is my work, but the textures is rendered from a high poly model.
The polycount is 319 triangles. Going to add some reflections on the sides and in the windows.
