New NSWGR steam era stock

 
  BrianBS Locomotive Driver

Hi guys,

The NSWGR steam era seems to have been dormant for a while now. MSTS is not entirely dead just yet !

So, I decided to make a pack of new locos to inject a bit of life back into 'old faithful' MSTS.

This is a pack of six NSWGR low frame C32's - these cover three different stages of locomotive development between WW1 and WW2 era - some with 6-w tender, some with bogie tender. The models are based on my early P Class models made for the Open Rails Zig-Zag route, but the .ENG files are made for MSTS. These models will run in OR (just like most other MSTS models), but not with all the OR physics parameters.

The models are available for download now - on the Coals to Newcastle website.

Regards, Brian Bere-Streeter

Excellent, Brian

Good to see some new treats in MSTS SmileSmileSmile And here I was thinking MSTS Australia was dead, because I only see new American and Indian addons being made! But I'm not interested in American and Indian trains or routes ha ha ha LaughingLaughingLaughing

I have been looking at moving on from MSTS to Train Simulator 2018, but the problem is that there's no import-export for Train Sim Modeler (.dst & .dsp) for Blender as well as an exporter from Blender to Train Simulator 2018, so I haven't yet brought Train Simulator 2018 yet

I will not be giving up on MSTS or Train Sim Modeler, as there are so many great addons made for the game and I paid so much for Train Sim Modeler both Pro and Commercial versions

I just want a import-export so that I can model the easier stuff in TSM and import it into Blender for the harder stuff and to export it into Train Simulator 2018 SmileSmileSmile

Once again, Brain it is great to see new models and to know that MSTS isn't offically dead SmileSmileSmileSmileSmileSmile

I've used TS20XX for several years now. If you're willing to spend around $70, you can purchase 3D Crafter which has the .dst import feature. In 3DC 8, the model will be exactly the same as in TSM, and I think you can use the licence key for 3D Canvas 7.0.2 which is the one I use the most.

Just a case of convenience vs $ basically. It enables me to reuse models from as early as about 2006, and generally makes the task easy as. Not that bad, considering that TSM became freeware a few years ago.

I knew about 3D Crafter, but I had forgotten that it will import TSM (dst) files and export models into a variety of train simulators

Thanks heaps, AVG SmileSmileSmile I don't mind buying 3d crafter, but where can I find 3D Canvas? I have searched for it but can't find the website

The 3d modelling programs I have so far are:

Train Sim Modeler Commercial
Google Sketchup 8 Pro
Gmax
LithUnwrap (I needed this to convert from gmax to md3 and then to 3ds, but I don't use it much these days)
and Blender

What I have noticed about the 3d modelling programs I have is that they all have so many different features
that's probably why I use all of them except for LithUnwrap, but I surely can include 3d crafter as part of the family Very HappyVery HappyVery Happy

3D Crafter 8.2.8 or 7.0.2 seems to do the job for me. You can use the same licence key for both programs. With 3D Crafter 9 and onward, you need to purchase it again. But availability could be a problem. I'm not sure if you can use the same key that works in 3DC 10 with the two aforementioned older versions though.

You will need the Trainworks plugin to bring up the .igs exporter as well. To enable, go to tools - options - misc.

Trainworks for version 8: https://web.archive.org/web/20140217115223/http://www.amabilis.com/downloads/3DCPlugins827.zip

And 9.1 https://web.archive.org/web/20140217115223/http://www.amabilis.com/downloads/3dcplugins%209.1.1.msi

My TS2018 project is probably at least 75% complete now, and shouldn't take an eternity to complete the remaining portions. I am not yet familiar with interactive objects at the moment with this game, though, so I will have to learn how these work, as I don't use any assets that aren't my own. In short, don't expect to be released on the Steam workshops.

No locomotives have ever turned a wheel under AVG's ownership btw.
