Additional Automata Skins

3 posts in this topic Last Reply

Basically what I'm wondering is how to go about making a reskin be an ADDITIONAL automata instead of being a replacement. I know it is possible as I have reskins which create a variation of the automata instead of replacing the textures. What I'm wondering though is how can I modify the reskin files I have so that they do this? (and as a result I'm able to have more than 1 train reskin)

Edit: Note I am talking about creating additional reskins for Passenger Trains

HI, FWIW my understanding is that trains don't work the same way as regular road automata. If you add additional trains, you will have trains made up of various skins - not two (or more) different kinds of trains (if that makes sense).

  • Hi,

    Yeah that makes sense. I thought it could be done because I have variations of the Freight train, but now that I think about it more closely only the engine changes.

    Shame though would've liked to be able to make my railways more realistic by having multiple types of trains 15.gif

    Thanks for your help!
