There 142 looked fairly similar (as in how much they had done, not in actual model :lol:) after a few days then a month later they had only moved on a tiny bit as all the little small parts were to be modelled. The cab also needs done, like they've said it will be a good while, I'd say 2 or 3 months at least.
Just as a side note though Oovee were doing a Class 90 but they cannot do it anymore as they couldn't get licenses and Greater Anglia wouldn't allow them to record sounds. So Oovee had stopped theirs. Maybe Waggonz (In Plain View) could team up with Oovee and then even get it sold on Steam, RSC have the Freightliner license and so I doubt that would be an issue and it would only benefit the project. Just a thought mind!

IIRC, Freightliner don't charge for a license (unlike some), so going through RSC is a bit pointless in that respect. Going with Oovee is also a tad pointless as they are working on their U-boat at the moment, and going through steam offers less profit per sale than going solo or through someone such as AP or JT. It'd also be nice to show RSC that developers don't need their "partner programme" to get decent DLC together.

Do they not, thanks for letting me know!
I personally think though Oovee would love to assist as they were doing it and so will no doubt be able to provide with some very useful technical stuff. Saying that I'd expect Waggonz to already have it or at least be in the process of getting some. Oovee would be able to help out by adding some other 'cool' features and it would make for a great product, it will in any case no doubt but I think Oovee's assistance could just add a bit more.
Selling through RSC/Steam whilst they may not get as big a royalty rate, they would certainly get a lot more sales as the majority of users (myself included - although I will buy if it isn't available) use Steam and don't look elsewhere. You have a much wider audience of 4 million+ active users (not all own TS2012 though). They could even go with Just Trains and become a part of their 'Advanced' line of products which in my opinion is still a larger audience than AP. I'm not saying AP won't have as many people but Just Trains has a bigger base in the simulation. AP though might have a better royalty rate. At the end of the day it is up Waggonz where they sell. I was just providing my opinion so don't go crazy :lol:

Fair enough for your own opinion, just stating mine. Though, from what has been said of the Wagonzz 142, they've set a new bar for quality and features, so there'll be no need for help from Oovee. In regards to Steam, the profits might be lower and yes, the volume of sales might be higher, but it probably levels out in terms of payment due to various royalty rates.

Where's the third rail?
It's got the wrong type of pantograph
The chimney is the wrong shape
It sounds like a black 5

:wink:





Looks rather spiffing so far :)

It is about time someone did some proper trains like the 142 and 90. I also can't wait for a 92 :P

Long live british built locos/units.

Hi guys,

Now that the 142 is back in AP's capable hands after some bits and pieces were tweaked it's back to work on the 90 :)

I've attached a few pics of how we are getting on.

That model is a perfect representation of the real thing, not one part looks even slightly 'off'. Well done :D

Apart that it has no pantograph. :P :P
(Yes, that was a joke - I know it is WIP!)


Excellent work Waggonz, and brilliant news that the 142 is in AP's hands - hopefully a sign that it won't be long until release! :D
