This is a modification of my Big Boy, so i will explain the changes only.

Changes:
  • - Reworked Model, Texture and Animation to match the Challenger (of course^^)
    - Cleaned up files: removed unused or unnecessary shapes, bones, animations...
Specifications:
  • - 3 Versions, each with 2 Designs to choose from in game :
    • - UP Black #3985 (with or without Smoke Deflectors)
      - UP Grayhound #3977 for Passenger Service (with or without Smoke Deflectors)
      - both with new Challenger Oil Tender
      - Polygon Count: 8340 (with Oil Tender)
    - optional:
    • - UP Black #3995 with Coal Tender (with or without Smoke Deflectors)
      - Polygon Count: 8193 (with Coal Tender)

Hi, I've tried downloading this and your Big-Boy Models several times, but I never get the xml files. I have downloaded the 4-8-4 Northern and that works fine both tender and engine. Is it possible for me to get the xml files or should I just edit the info in the xml files of the 4-8-4 Northern?
