  1. A new 757

    The engines are not the same. 767s use either the JT9Ds, PW 4000s, RB211-524s, or GE CF6s, while 757s use the RB211-535s or the PW 2000-series engines. All that aside, nice model.
  2. Sim City Aviation Group: REQUESTS

    This is what I have so far. It's based off of the FMC Commander. Haven't done much in the way of detail since they're so small in-game:
  3. Sim City Aviation Group: REQUESTS

    I noticed that someone else was requesting more GSE, and it just so happens that I've been dinking around with a cargo loader model in Gmax for a while. Mind if I share some pics here?
  4. Railroad Signal Lots

    I'm not exactly sure what's going on, I've listed the dependencies that show up when I scan the file. Unless I'm missing something really big here...?
  5. Railroad Signal Lots

    Whoops, sorry about that. The file should include the models now.
  6. Railroad Signal Lots

    Thanks everyone for the feedback! This is something I've been playing around with for a while. I guess they did come out a little too bright...I'll darken the color a little more when I get a chance. azninoverdrive: I just put a flat color over the different parts of the model. As for the dimensions, I believe these are about 15 meters high in gmax.
  7. Railroad Signal Lots

    Version 1


    Assortment of five lots. Two are crossovers with either cantilever or mast signals, and the other three are just the signals, all representative of what is seen on most western-U.S. railroads. All are transit-enabled and appear in the park menu.

  8. High Speed Rail Project

    Originally posted by: aldara6166 Concerning the interchanges...let me add one thought...to my knowledge, ALL such train systems also rely on computers...computer can calculate, in a fraction of a second, at what point 2 trains would be getting to the same interchange at the same time...with computerized systems, communications networks, etc., the trains can communicate with the main server and that server can indicate a need for one train to slow down slightly...basically, if you slow one train down by 1-2 km / hour, that train would get to the interchage AFTER the other...thus, avoiding a collission...quite a simple program actually, just a basic If-Else-Then type script...yeah, it is more complicated than that in real life but that is the basic premise anyway... quote> The computer actually controls the signalling systems to which the trains rely upon for authority of movement. It's a system called Centralized Traffic Control, usually run by a dispatcher. The photos in these links provide examples: Photo 1 Photo 2
  9. High Speed Rail Project

    Originally posted by: Lord KronosBUt the lights could be there to aid cameras which would almost certainly stretch along any such network, so as to pinpoint obstructions before a high speed train gets to them. else the train won't have the time to slow down and stop before it hits the object. that way the cameras either feed to rail control, or to the train. of course there might just be sensors over the tracks, but then wildlife would interfere. but perhaps we're getting into to much realism?quote> Probably getting a bit too realistic, but whatever. Having, say, blue lights wouldn't be a bad idea (would look pretty neat actually) but if it's an issue of safety than floodlights would be a but more practical IMO.

  11. Container Freight Yards

    I just have one complaint...that's a marine crane (loads ships); most, if not all intermodal yards use Mi-Jack Translift and Piggy Packer equipment. Regardless, nice work!
  12. High Speed Rail Project

    This is progressing nicely! However, would it be possible to get track textures looking a little more traditional, say, like this? Ballast plays a big role in track stability, plus IMO dirt looks out of place....
  13. Modern MonorailBusSubway Station

    works great and looks awesome
