New Passenger & Mail Cars

Post by wingsofphoenix » Sun Oct 03, 2010 11:01 am

This is the release of my modern looking passenger and mail cars, with some railroad paintshemes. Feel free to change the textures to your liking and to add additional paintshemes.

Version 2.0: <UPDATE>
- prototypical model length (85' passenger, 73' mail), both with 2 versions (different window and door positions)

Paintshemes:
1. with riveted sides:
  • - _common > recommended files for these paintshemes
    - _up > Union Pacific paintsheme
    - _gh > Union Pacific Grayhound paintsheme
    - _sp > Southern Pacific Daylight paintsheme
2. with corrugated sides:
  • - _sf > ATSF Paintsheme
    - _v3 > Amtrak Phase II Paintsheme

Version 1.0:
- models with length reduced to 2/3

There are 3 folders in the pack:
- _common contains the animation files

Animation:
Loading and Unloading is working on both types, unfortunately loading time is divided by 2 at stations (= 1 sec) and by 4 at terminals (= 0.5 sec), so its hard so see there. Unloading is always playing in full length.

- the other folders contain the different versions

Paintshemes:
1. with riveted sides:
  • - _common > recommended files for these paintshemes
    - _v3 > standard SMR paintsheme, made after v2 version
    - _up > Union Pacific paintsheme
    - _gh > Union Pacific Grayhound paintsheme
    - _sp > Southern Pacific Daylight paintsheme
2. with corrugated sides:
  • - _sf > ATSF Paintsheme
    - _amtk > Amtrak Phase II Paintsheme

Installation
  • - UnZip the files to CustomAssets folder or UserMaps/YOURMAPNAME folder
    - the _v3 versions needs to be installed (even if not used), any other not used Design can be deleted to save memory.
    - Assign an Engine to these cars by changing the TAG in <szCar>_TAG</szCar> of any engine to the tags above (i.e. _v3, _up) in:
    • -> RRT_Trains.xml for general use
      OR
      -> RRT_Trains_YOURMAPNAME.xml for use in a certain Map only
Critical Notes:
  • - This works only if the Engine has <PassengersAndMailOnly>1</PassengersAndMailOnly> in its XML or if only Passenger and Mail Cars are added, unless you have versions of any Traincar on your Map with the same Tag!!
    -> Easy way to get that is by copy&rename the latest _TAG.kfm and _dummies_TAG.nif of any available TrainCar and change the tag to the chosen Passenger&Mail TAG
Alternative Installation (Non-Critical):
  • - Overwriting the _v2 Cars by changing the TAG (of the Passenger or Mail Car files of your choice) from these files:
    _TAG.kfm and _dummies_TAG.nif to _v2

Congratulations, these are great looking TrainCars.
I hope you will have the XML files posted, sometimes, for those of us who are less talented. :wink:

The XML of the Train Cars? I didnt changed a thing there, all of them using standard passenger/mail XML. The only XML that have to be edited is for the engine, that should pull them (one line of it, as explained above). :?:

I have been asked to help to place these TrainCars in a Map, and explain it how.
So this is how it works for me.
Below is the directory of my map, where AAA is the name of the map.
From all the folders that wingsofphoenix provided the “_common” folder needs to be copied + the pain schemes planning to use. I have chosen the “_amtk” and the “_sf” scheme.

Next I modified the scenario’s RRT_Trains.xml file.

Here I’ve changed the <szCar>_v2</szCar> line to correspond to the paint scheme

<Train>
<szName>TAG_NAME_CLASS_141</szName>
<Year>1942</Year>
<szManufacturerName>SNCF</szManufacturerName>
<szModel>2_8_2_Mikado.kfm</szModel>
<szDummyModel>2_8_2_Mikado_dummies.nif</szDummyModel>
<szCar>_sf</szCar>
</Train>

<Train>
<szName>TAG_NAME_BO_BO_BO</szName>
<Year>1970</Year>
<szManufacturerName>Swiss Federal</szManufacturerName>
<szModel>BoBoBo_RE66.kfm</szModel>
<szDummyModel>BoBoBo_RE66_dummies.nif</szDummyModel>
<szCar>_amtk</szCar>
</Train>

Finally checked the RRT_Names.XML file to be sure that both trains are listed.

And here is the result:

It's a lot harder when these cars are not install files.

I don't know how to put these cars in the game, it's son confusing. It'd be a lot easier when they're zip files (with installation). Can you make them zip files?

An Installer Zip wont help here, it would just unpack it to a folder. To use them, you have to change existing XML ONLY. :!:

I cleared the Installation Notes up, I hope it is easier to understand now. :wink:
Jancsika did explain it pretty well too. :D

If not, I have to write a tutorial about that.. :?

2nd day can't do this
Try to add to "Canadian Pacific" map, but game is always crash(
I edit the RRT_TrainCars.xml on example, written in this file:

<TrainCar>
<szName>Furs Car</szName>
<szGood>Furs</szGood>
<szModel>Furs_Car.kfm</szModel>
<szDummyModel>Furs_Car_dummies.nif</szDummyModel>
<szIcon>ICON_Car_Food.dds</szIcon>
<szGroundClackSound>AS3D_CLACK_PLANET_GROUND</szGroundClackSound>
<szBridgeClackSound>AS3D_CLACK_PLANET_BRIDGE</szBridgeClackSound>
<RunLength>30</RunLength>
</TrainCar>

it's from map^

<TrainCar>
<szName>Passenger Car</szName>
<szGood>Passenfers</szGood>
<szModel>Passenger_Car.kfm</szModel>
<szDummyModel>Passenger_Car_dummies.nif</szDummyModel>
<szIcon>ICON_Car_Passenger.dds</szIcon>
<szGroundClackSound>AS3D_CLACK_PLANET_GROUND</szGroundClackSound>
<szBridgeClackSound>AS3D_CLACK_PLANET_BRIDGE</szBridgeClackSound>
<RunLength>30</RunLength>
</TrainCar>

it's added car^
