Well these models are done structually, I now have to get them textured, and then get the wheels and bogies animated, then export into Railworks.

If i am not entirely wrong, you don't need to animate them as RW's engine will do that for you, as long as you have followed the naming guidelines of the parts of the model (ie. wheel01, bogie01 and so on, altho can't remember if they were used 'wh' instead wheel and 'bg' instead of bogie).

But, absolutely stunning models, and those wagons seems easy now that you have already modelled 73... :D

EDIT: Seems to be Boxx and Whxx in the naming convention.

That 25 1/2 tonner would be superb :)

He's indeed correct, RWs animates bogies and wheels for you indefinitely. If they aren't named correctly the wagon won't work :P The naming convention is ##_LODS_whXX or ##_LODS_boXX where XX represents the wheel/bogie number.

May I ask if you can make a bit of scenery for me please? There was a signal box on a gantry on the Leamside line, and there is nothing like it available.

If you're feeling very kind, please through in a 80's version, where BR cut the gantry and shoved some jacks underneath.

One day I'll need Victoria Viaduct, but I don't know when I'll start that bit of the line.

These photos (Of a model, but they're quite accurate) show the dimensions of it better.

Wow... I too am amazed at the quality of these considering they were made in Sketchup. Well done.

Thanks guys :)

What is the best blueprint type for the final containers? for instance the Billboards were in Scenery -> Clutter

*Might as well try and get SOMETHING working... :/

Check the default bin files to see what they use - not sure if they need to be a specific type to work with cranes etc

Looking through, they seem to be under RailNetwork\Interactive...

Thanks

Ediyt: But that doesn't help, so must have looked at the wrong category :oops:

Edit 2: Looking again

Scenery Blueprint

<Category d:type="cDeltaString">eClutter</Category>

So assuming for the fact that there is no eClutter category, I assume it is a Clutter object
