I'm trying to create a train asset but it needs to have an "A" car and a "B" car due to this train having different window sizes and textures (lead/trailing cars are different than the ones in the middle). Does this mean I have to create two separate FBX files for each car type or do I model them in the same file? And how do you put the different car types together - in the vehicle editor in Cities Skylines?

You'll need 2 different files to be separately imported as passenger/engine vehicles then you'll need to find the mod that allows you to import 2 separate types of passenger car files as the Vanilla editor doesn't let you do this. I haven't done a train asset since before 1.7 so I'm not sure if there is a compatible mod anymore.

It could be done before so maybe someone still knows the mod and knows if it's updated. It worked for me when I was making my Train vehicle assets

  • I found the mod you referenced. It was created by the guy that disappeared and BloodyPenguin had to recompile all of his mods. I think there's a different version of it called Extended Asset Editor that might work - I'll check it out when I make more progress. UV unwrapping is killing me atm...

        I have become more familiar in 3Ds Max and even gained enough expertise in it over the past few months that I think my skill level is approaching a point where I think I am good enough to start making mods for Cities: Skylines. I started practicing in 3DsMax to make brick rowhouses for the game Banished but since I am more interested in Cities: Skylines now and my buildings were practice so I can mod C:S, I decided to start a new project of making buildings just for Cities: Skylines.
         
        I whipped this building up over the course of 4-7 hours today. It would have taken only 1 or 2 hours had I not made a ton of mistakes that required me to start from the beginning.

        It will normally grow on a 4 tile wide x 3 tile deep lot with the ability to grow on a 4x4 lot with a backyard.
        FYI, I plan on making a ColorMask for the outer 2 rowhouses so it could have more variety (bright red, pink, tan, and whitewashed).
         
        Please give me feedback to help me improve the quality of my creations.
         
         
        Thank you!

        Hello everyone. This will be my custom content showcase and workshop thread. In all the years I been a member here, I never uploaded any content but enjoying great work by other members. I take this opportunity to say Thank You to all content makers for making our city building experience so enjoyable. I feel that making content is overdue for me and I want to give back to the community. I have some buildings and trees that I will be showing in upcoming updates to this thread. I will also be asking for advice and help.

        So I figured I might as well make a topic here, as this is most likely not gonna be the last time I ask for you guys' oppinion.  If I remember, I'll post WIP and releases of my buildings here.
        My current project is a bus depot that fits the european theme and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out - but I've ended up with two sizes of it and I just can't decide which I like the best and could see myself using both. So I'd love some feedback - which you prefer or if it makes sense to upload both of them.
        The small one is about the same size as the default one and has the same stats. The large one has slightly higher stats, but as depots can spawn infinite busses there's no benefit to the bigger one. I purely made it this large as the ones I took inspiration from were this size or bigger.
        Picture time!
