Rail Sizing

Post by HisAlterEgo » Fri May 04, 2007 7:47 pm

Since Mange's tender mod shrunk the size of the engines and cars slightly, they don't exactly match up with the rails now as everyone knows. Is there a way to edit the rail to make them slightly smaller to accomodate the wheels better? It would also look better overall as the rails wouldn't be so big in the map.

Is that sure? I´m not sure if mange made the traincars smaller. I think he adds fscale to the locos via xml. If you need your trains bigger simply increase that in your main train xml

I know this topic is quite old, but the issue still exists ;)

I thought the same about the track gauge, so I scaled it to match my models and the game's scale I set with them for me. I also made the ballast bed a little wider. :mrgreen:

This will overwrite the default tracks (of course already laid too) and should work with any existing rolling stock, more or less. Atleast they shouldnt fall from the track :roll:

The zip contains all 3 types of track, and 2 folders with textures (default and limestone). Your choice, or create your own :wink:

Heres my new favorite track color, taken from MSTS 8)

Just unzip it to your map folder in UserMaps or CustomAssets for Scenario Maps, it contains all files (not just the updated ones).

Enjoy :mrgreen:
