VIRM "RegioRunner" Custom Train 3

About This File

I'm extremely excited about this one - basically, this is the kind of thing I was hoping to do when I started breaking apart the package files during the first beta; this is officially the first fan-made 3d model that's made its way into the game. It cost me many hours to make, but the end result is more than worth it for me.

This train is the so-called VIRM (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NS_VIRM ), one of the more well-known trains of the Dutch railways. Apart from a few minor details, the in-game one is an exact replica.

The only very minor issue with this model is that the LODs (which are what the game displays at higher distances) have still slightly more polygons than maybe they should, but unless you have a very low-end machine, this should not be noticeable.

UPDATE (16-5-2013)

File has been modified to change the scale of the train (originally I used the real-world dimensions, but those look too small in-game; now I always multiply the real-world dimensions by 1.3). Also contains better looking LODS and bump mapping.

 

UPDATE (31-5-2013)

 

Adjusted the height of the pantograph for the electrified railroad.

Added interior maps for the train.

Congratulations oppie. Very well done indeed and thank you for your time.

 

I wonder what Maxis & EA are thinking about modding. Any news people of them allowing MODs? Any tools? No?

I've been using this and the other vehicle texture mods for a while now and have to say how much they add to my game. Thank you for making them. Although with all the bugs with trains that haven't been removed yet I have to ask: why didn't you use a Fyra model? :)

Will you be updating the train for GU 8. Instead of replacing the textures, the mod only adds gaps between all the train cars.

Thanks.

      Hi all,
      I am working on a project to create a set of custom station tracks (custom rails and catenary) which can be used ingame with Touch This mod to replace vanilla station tracks.
      Thus far I have managed to PoC it with two lane, two way track and it seems to work just fine (textures from MOM and props from Catenary Replacer)
      Before I continue on this I have a couple questions:
      -if I wish to use textures and props from MOM and CR where can I ask for permission?
      -how can I make catenary to be compatible with CR?

      This is a relot of Maxis' Grand Rail Station reward, wich didn't age well in comparison with the great custom content made by the community. In addition to general redecoration of the surroundings, a second dual track rail passage has been added, as well as some timed passenger car props and visual TE for street and a custom icon.

      Buildingprop Vol 1 and 2, or alternatively Maxis Prop Names and Query Fix
      Notes:
      As with any lot overrides, it's recommended to bulldoze any existing instances of the Grand Rail Station in your desired region before (un)installing this plugin, otherwise it may lead to problems ranging from texture and prop mismatches to pathing issues. You can plop them back afterwards.
      This relot was originally built for personal purposes, hence the amount of dependencies
      Enjoy!

      Hello player.
      This time I bring you a beautiful full size industrial style Grain Elevator.
      SM2 ADM Grain Elevator SD acts as a freight yard.
      Grain Elevators are all over the place, they are used to collect, store and ship mostly wheat grains. This one is a truly colossal model based on a real life structure found in Alberta, Canada.
      This particular model had to be rendered in SD (Standard Definition) because of its sheer size (I could not coax my computer to cough up the full size HD version.
      However there is a somewhat smaller version which I managed to render in HD (High Definition), available as a separate lot.
      You will also find 2 sets of standalone Silos included in this Zip. These silos (1X and 2X) can be plopped in existing farms field and then by using a variety of MMP's to construct a roadway, can simulate silos on a farm.
      Both silos have no power, roads and water requirements therefore they can be plopped anywhere.
      The dirt roads will connect visually. Trucks will bring the goods and the DTR rail will allow freight trains to cross the lot after loading.
      I suggest to connect the DTR network as a spur because passenger trains will not cross the lot.
      Freight capacity = 80,000 tons
      Jobs = 268 low, 133 med and 26 high
      Plop cost = 39,200
      Power = 39
      Water = 154

      Grain Elevators are allover the place, they are used to collect, store and ship mostly wheat grains. This one is a truly colossal model based on a real life structure found in Alberta, Canada.
      This is the SD Cal Canal version of SM2 ADM Grain Elevator.Fully rendered including a grain transfer boom for fluvial operations (loading ships). Anyone that uses Cal Canals will find this version very useful.
      SM2 ADM Grain Elevator SD Cal Canal also acts as a freight yard.
      The dirt roads and STR rail will connect to the game networks visually therefore you will see freight trucks arriving and freight trains leaving.
      Lot size 10x12
      Freight capacity = 65,000 tons
      Jobs = 180 low, 88 med and 23 high
