How to add my own custom Logo

Post by Engioc » Sat Mar 24, 2007 8:22 am

can someone please tell me how I add my own custom logo. I have a jpeg file which I'd like to use as my logo but not sure how to get it in the game.

By default the logos are 128x128 pixels and need to be in DDS format. If you use Photoshop, nVidia has a kewl plugin that can export to the DDS format. Otherwise get a DDS converter.

Here's the basics:
1. Find your SMR user data folder. The default location is C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents\My Games\Sid Meier's Railroads!\. If you have a CustomAssets folder in there then open that and make a Logos folder. (C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents\My Games\Sid Meier's Railroads!\CustomAssets\Logos)
2. Create your logo image and resize it to 128x128, save it as a DDS file with alpha channel (DXT3 format) into the Logos folder. The filename is important. Make sure it is in the format where xx is the next number in the logo image sequence. The game ships with 21 logos so the next number would be 22 (
3. Optionally you can make a specularity image ( but it is not required.

You can also get a plugin for gimp 2 to save and open DDS files. If you copy-paste and then anchor the pasted layer down, you can get files off of anywhere.
