      We're getting close with our April goal - please help us over the final bump! Your donations not only help keep the site up and running, but also allows us to expand some functionality and upgrade other features of the site periodically to stay current! We're looking for some community support to help us get a new Chat system (as you know our old Chat is no longer supported by IP.Board).

In the process of moving at the moment but I found time to start a new project.

I'm batting and lotting a series of abandoned trains stops. Trying to convey a sense of decay and abandonment.

Trains will still cross the lots, some are still barely functional and some are just completely left to the inclement of time.

Here is a DTR one, placed in the sleazy part of the map....still functional.

Great look for an economically depressed locality (seedy neighborhood, abandoned industrial park, etc.). I like the graffiti - for some reason you always find it near railroads and it would add a splash of color to a grungy area.

Uhm no. I made everything you see. That is a Gmax screenshot from my comp.

Oh cool, I was thinking I'd seen some barriers with graffiti there.

I totally agree with rathefalcon's assessment.

I'd would be great if you were to make little hobo tents and or shacks. (please, please, please), hahaha.........ahem, but seriously.

As added realism you could add graffiti in hobo code, I have limited knowledge of this.

Just ideas for you consideration.

Fine work Sir, fine work indeed.

I'm pretty sure there is a typo for your legend there. It's actually supposed to say "SM2 - THE Aqueduct Pipe Legend". :rofl:

Can't wait to finally play around with these bad boys.

Thank you Tibi!

Big update, only thing left is search and destroy bugs and a careful polish of the 100's of props used.
I created dozens of new props for this project and they will be released before hand as SM2 Prop Pack Vol2. The timed family pack will be released with this lot. There are over 150 on the pack Timed props are on a 8 hours schedule in order to make the lot more lively.

Of course, the lot texture is completely custom made!

Regarding the triple track layout. I decided that there will be only one that actually will allow trains to pass across the lot the, middle one. The outer tracks have train props on them therefore it will look awful to see trains go through them. However, they will still connect to the rail network visually. Also, the road entrances are TE'd across both connections.

Connection between the outer tracks to the inner one, outside the lot, must be implemented when connecting with the rail network.

Here are a few pics.

      so I've been waiting for sub buildings to become native so I could finally finish off Flinders Street Station (from Melbourne) here's a quick WIP look - probably will release sometime soonish - maybe next week.

      Let me know what you guys think!

      Hello there folks.
      I really don't know am I allowed to do this, but admins and slow to answer and my "messenger man" hasn't said anything so I guess this OK.
      Thing is that since SimPeg unfortunately went offline, I'ven't had a support thread. And because I really suffer somekind of god syndrome being last good batter with gMax I'll rarely post stuff in here if and when I BAT. I've about 60-100 bats to be un- and re-released and most on those re-release stuff its that they were made like decade ago (I know right).
      I would like to just upload stuff what BSC people modded for me years ago, so I've been upgrading those bats what I made with them back in the day. Though if someone gets permission from RippleJet (I guess this was the name) I can release bunch of diagonal, but out-dated stuff in a sec.
      Anyhow, here are my latest bats in the works and coming up:

      Baxter Building

      iGroup Tower

      Wembley Station
      One Roxxon Plaza

      Autotalo, being under work since 2013 i believe.

      SM2 Abandoned Train Stop.
      This train stop has been sitting in my hard drive for too long. Time to release it!.
      Best plopped in those seedy parts of town....or industrial areas perhaps.
      Plop cost 3000
      Bulldoze cost 300
      Power req 44
      Capacity 7500
      It still acts as a passenger station plus it will let freight trains go through it.
      No dependencies and as a bonus it is also Maxis vanilla rail compatible.
      Works like a charm!
