Post by Rodea2007 » Sun Mar 07, 2010 11:59 am

Every Mod Rodea Engine will be provided in one folder that contains:
1. KFM files
2. NIf File
3. KF files (if any)
4. Image files (DDS and TGA)
5. Train XML File
6. Train Car Tender XML files
7. Train Name XML File,
so at every mod I will explain how to incorporate them into the Map in writing to xml or it will be made globally in the introduction thread

Also it would be nice to have some XML file samples and instructions, how to use them.
Most people don’t know how to write an XML file.
This below is a sample title of the XML files needed.
The Assets folder that can be placed in the UserMaps or the CustomAssets folder.
There will be several XML file ( 2 or 3 depending on the type of engine)
Trains.XML add to the RRT_Trains_MAPNAME.XML file.
Names.XML add to the RRT_Names_MAPNAME.XML file.
Tenders.XML add to the RRT_Traincars_MAPNAMES.XML file.
or
TrainCars.XML add to the RRT_TrainCars_MAPNAME.XML file.
Note: Some engines will not have Tenders!!!!!!
Let me know what you think and how you want to do it.

Nice clean engine. Something new for a change.
If you want it to show up in your map, you have to change the year built from 2001 to something earlier.
<Train>
<szName>TAG_NAME_ALP46_NJT4604</szName>
<Year>1900</Year>

This is an electric train, so he does not need to Rodea Diesel Engine Files, but within the folder have engineer.dds, wich required by the engineer model as a texture

Thanks for that Jancsika, and bad news for a while I can't work for my new mods, because my Geforce ( Grapich Card ) was broken, and it's mean I can't use my High spech Computer, just only use the old one

Rodea's trains are awesome. I love them and have added them to the standard game, but they do have a couple small problems. In the Name.xml and train.xml the tags are listed as;
<Tag>TAG_TRAIN_NAME_trainname</Tag>

As above they won't show up in the game. They need to be:
<Tag>TAG_NAME_trainname</Tag>

Also the F-Series has no routing picture.

BTW, I fixed the ATSF F7 routing image. Seems there was some odd typo in the file name in the <BitmapIcon> tag.
Not sure if it was already there or something I did.
Thanks for all your great work Rodea.
