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.

      Welcome back for more wind power lots!
      This time its the actual manufacturing plant (SM2 Wind Power Inc.) for the generator's nose cones and blades.
      You will find 3 lots in this pack.
      The main one is 19X15 and will provide 496 I-M jobs.
      D1 (big blades depot) is 9x4 and will provide 3 jobs.
      D2 (small blades depot) is 5x4 and will provide 3 jobs.
      The large lot has a DTR rail which can be connected to the rail network (RRW). The lot will allow both freight and passenger train to go through for maximum realism. You can expand the main lot by plopping extra depots around its perimeter or you can plop them separately, up to you.
      All 3 lots make extensive usage of timed prop families and you can find them in the Landmark menu.
      Actions starts at 6AM and goes around the clock.

      It has come to my attention that Caribou's website went down back in 2016 and after scouring the internet there is no trace of any of his work.
      Since I have his work stored in a secure offline vault, I feel that in the spirit of preservation, his work should be available to the public once again.
      These lots and models were made by Caribou and are provided AS IS, nothing in the Zips has been changed by me.
      Since he never provided any pictures I took it upon myself to plop all the lots in game for the purpose of taking snapshots in order for everyone to peruse them before downloading.
      Anyone in the future who would like to create new lots from these models can now use these uploads as a dependency.
      There are 3 lots in this zip
      1) Elevated Rail Station
      1) Elevated EL Station
      1) Monorail Station
      Many Thanks go to Tyberius06 for bringing this matter to my attention.
      Kind regards
