755 DownloadsShort version: Yep, did it again. This time you can choose between 71 DATs which are different monorail train styles for the same 15 colors as in the Color Pack #1. However, the "A" in "Pack 2A" stands for the fact that it has only (!) my NewWindows version which I find visually more pleasing than the different window concepts of the default monotrain. Hint: For full enjoyment, I recommend the UV map fix for the default monorail. It fixes some graphical issues you might notice when zooming in closer on the monorail trains. Long version: In case you want more information. SimScientists still haven't exhausted all possible options in this new academic field - color packs - so the monorails they love to ride so much are getting another choice of colored liveries! The main surprise of the public were two things: - the exclusion of the old blue-ish roofs/tops of the monorails which are now either colored or in a nice clean white - the exclusion of the default small passenger windows in favor of the new bigger windows ... Sims like the view! 71 possible choices for the default Maxis monorail train model: - 14 colors with CS (Colored Stripe), WB (White Bottom) and CT (Colored Top) - 14 colors with InvertedOWS (OWS = Original White Stripe) ... it's not inverted like color inverted, it's inverted in that the stripe is now colored and the rest is white-ish - 14 colors with OWS and CT - 14 colors with OWS and WT (White Top) - 15 colors with a single color (= single) and CT ... yeah, this naming here is really messy. The 15 colors are (not following any official naming convention here): - Banana Day - Blue Ocean - Flashy Green - Fresh Green - Grass Green - Hot Pink - Intense Orange - Lazy Orange - Original Red (the default red) - Spring Green (yeah, another one!) - Turquoise (tortoise is the animal, this is the tricky color mix of green and blue) - Tropic Blue - Violet Blue - Warm Yellow (it's more like standard yellow in comparison to Banana Day) - White Grey (which only occurs in single color variations) What's in the box? Aside from the 71 DAT files there are 3 preview pics to help you choose the right livery and the readme. I hope to encourage others to include similar information in their projects to give the user the chance to remember what the file includes even when you open it after several months or so. Any dependencies? Nope, this is still a texture replacement for the default Maxis monorail train model. The DAT files only include the two FSH items for the engine and passenger part. You should know what that means - if you don't see the color, check that you have installed it in one of the Plugins folders (choose one!) and you are starting with the default Maxis monorail (or only slight modifications of it).
483 DownloadsAfter some 12-13 years of research, SimScientists unveiled their newest technological breakthrough - different colors for the default Maxis monorail - which they called: (for some reason) In all seriousness, I couldn't find a mod or file that just changes the color of the white-striped red monorail. So here are the files I created for my own use to share them with you! (Update: the additional MonoRail Color Pack 2A is available!) What's in the box? The total amount of DAT files is 59 here which split into 2x2xN color choices of some prominent colors (yeah, I'm going to use that word A LOT now). Why 2x2? It occured to me that the original white stripe on the default monorail texture is still quite nice but not necessarily necessary (ha!). So, that's your first choice: Do you want your monorail trains with that stripe or not? The second choice is: default windows or NewWindows. There are actually two kinds of windows on the monorail if you look closely enough - one set for the passengers and a different one for the train driver/front section ... Yeah, I did have a bit too much time at hand, so you have the choice of unified windows, too! In short: - 13 colors with Original White Stripe (OWS), default windows - 15 colors without OWS (= a single color), default windows - 15 colors with OWS and NewWindows (+1 experimental) - 15 colors without OWS and with NewWindows The colors are (not following any official naming convention here): - Banana Day - Blue Ocean - Complete Red (the default red but without OWS) - Flashy Green - Fresh Green - Grass Green - Hot Pink - Intense Orange - Lazy Orange - Original Red (the default red again) - Spring Green (yeah, another one!) - Turquoise (turtle is the animal, this is the color mix of green and blue) - Tropic Blue - Violet Blue - Warm Yellow - White Grey (which doesn't have an OWS DAT - duh!) Also included is a fancy readme and an overview image (1920x1920 px) of the whole package in pure JPG glory ... sort of. Well, you know, JPG is not that nice to the colors but it keeps the filesize down. Any dependencies? Nope. You only need the default Maxis monorail. Maybe make sure that you don't have another DAT changing the color of the monorail part or a model that replaces it. But you should know better - it's your Plugins folder, you know! Anything else I need to know about this pack? Well, don't feed it after midnight, I guess. It's a color/texture replacement for the default Maxis monorail, so what more is there to know? Oh, the filesize is almost 2 MB for the ZIP file, the single DATs are some 11-20kb. I hope you enjoy some variations of the monorail colors - if there's enough interest or if I have energy for other color schemes I might add them in another pack. 59 DATs are quite a lot for the first release, I think, even if you only end up using one of them! Hint: Use the UV map fix for the default Maxis monorail models as well to get rid of the annoying texture positioning bugs!
