And there's the problem with MSTS. There's always bugs.

As the thread title says, its nearly the end of 2011 now. Martin modelled the original comeng way back in 2003. MSTS standards have changed since then, everyone has more powerful computers, and our much loved comengs have have undergone several modifications. It just wasn't going to happen with the original shapes. The only real option is a complete rebuild with new texture mapping. So let's have a look at some of the changes for the new comeng...

One of the most important changes (aside from the metro colour scheme) is the removal of the periscopes and fitting upgraded airconditioning units suitable for Melbourne summers. Only 30 years late.

Still a bit of work to go, but we're getting there. Only the EDI version for now, Alstom version at some point in the future. A side bonus of the rebuild is it actually uses less system resources than the original inspite of the higher detail thanks to more efficent modelling.

It was a private project I'm afraid, but you might be interested in the Epping line which is currently in development instead. It will be avalible for download when finished, see the Eppling line thread for updates!
