Adding a new train to Railroads.

Post by eilelwen » Thu Nov 30, 2006 4:03 am

ok even though I said I wasn't going to do this. I am sence I have now worked out the last bugs, Smoke, and animations have been defeated.

now I'm going to include everything you need to do this. so you won't need any graphics program to do the tutorial.

So after going over this tut you should have a new GP7 ingame.

Programs you will need. any hexeditor, notepad or wordpad.

and nifskope.http://www.niftools.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=973

This tutorial is made for users with maya, if you don't have maya (max) the export settings will be different, same if you have blender. now as the binding the skin and exporting is easy enough. I can do that for you if you want to do your own project. however I won't do animations. (but if you can just reuse say the animations already ingame you don't need me to do that anyway, this is what I did)

now this is a very rough draft. if you guys have problems with it ask questions and I will try and re explain to the best of my abilities.

also you will need akmads scenario manager to add the GP7 to a map.

this is the first tut I have ever wrote, be nice please :)

and here is the actual tut.

Thanks for the Tutorial.
Seems like alot to go through just to get a loco to work.

I don't think I will worry about locos for railroads and just stick to Trainz.

That tutorial is really gorgeous,mate you did an extraordinary job indeed !! :!:

Told that it is still quite complicate and long to add even a single new loco so I sincerely hope that those max files you mentioned will be released very soon,at that point I bet you will make us dance the hardest rock'n'roll with your extraordinary creations that our lazyminds could import and play with.. :oops: :oops: :shock: :shock: :D :D

Thanks a lot in advance !!!! :!:

cheers

aye, I'm hopeing the max files help remove 90% of that list. although most of those will probably just move into max. But it will still probably be easyier.

Now that we have a Wiki, perhaps this tutorial should be put into it?

once company leaves and I get more free time I will see about doing that :). although anyone with time is welcome to it as long as you say I was the originator of it :).
