EDIT by Raichase: The railways of Australia are like the different nations in Europe. They are, of their own, independant nature, and although trains may cross the border, each state keeps a pretty strong showing of it's own trains, and only it's own trains. Combined with the difficulties of gauges, AU Set Leader Whitehand, has proposed to make this set a NSWGR set, which is probably the most famous of Australian railways. This would limit the set to NSWGR (New South Wales Government Railways) stock, as well as modern stock divided by private company (Freightcorp -> Pacific National, National Rail, etc).
Once the NSWGR componant is completed, there would then be the potential for "custom grfs" to be made, replacing NSWGR stock with stock from other states. Eg a Victorian Railways grf would replace most of the steamers with Victorian Steamers, ditto for the diesels, electrics, DMU's, EMU's, etc, while leaving the "national" trains the same, such as the National Rail trains. This would allow a common basis of freightcars, and "favorite" trains, but allow the set to be customised by the player from state to state.
Reason being, is that each state has their "favorite" locomotives, which are the same as everyone elses "favorites" from a TTD point of view. For example, the 38-Class of the NSWGR is very similar to the other streamlined express locos of the other states, and it's not fair to exclude every other states "favorite" locomotive simply because the set designers choose the 38.
So please, vote in the new poll and tell the team, so that they can help make the set something the community, and not just Australian members, can enjoy.
Thanks. [/edit by Raichase]
OK, It's official. This set is now the New South Wales rail set. However, feel free to continue voting.

Even though I fully agree, I don't think it would hurt to make plans for a set. I personally would love to see an Aussie set. Maybe even with some Aussie stations bridges(Sydney Harbour), buildings (Sydney Tower, the opera house) and even gum trees.Akalamanaia wrote:Your asking for coders and artists right when resources are strung high.
What about road trains! Now that would be interesting.
If you want to initiate a project, put something from your own effort to have it working. This is not "Dear Santa Claus, this year I've been a good child and I want..."
Indeed, there is people who doesn't code or make graphics, but contribute help to the set by bringing data, profiles of vehicles, and even pictures if you can take them for the artists to have a good shot. You know, it's not so easy to find pics on the web with the right angle...
To all "requesters"; move your ass!! If you really want so much a set or a train to appear in any game, TTD, or LoMo, or whatever it is, do something active to help. If you can't, then please don't tease people asking like children do
I will agree it looks pretty simple from the tut, but at some parts the tut tells u to add something, and in the pic i notice no difference. maybe it just my computers low brightness.
OT: Speaking of that, I have an old Compag Presario 2281 on XP. Anyone have a way to increase gamma correction. Ive tried but can't find anything.
Post them here, so that everyone easily can see them (because they are quite good, and we do want people to see them )
I don't think that's a problem; however moderators have the last word...

Heres an XPT in the Countrylink livery that I drew a while ago. Some have probably already seen it, but I'll put it here anyway for posterity.
