is there an installation guide for the vehicle and building editors?
I have unpacked the data.wdb file and "installed" the vehicle and building editors in the root folder of the game.
When I run the editors and then open a file (see screenshot), nothing much is displayed and I don't have the feeling that I can change anything...
Not sure what I am doing wrong... my latest guess is that I don't have the right game (have apparently SuS, not 3DTT)
Once this is done the editor should display the vehicles and you should be able to edit them. As I said, I'm not an expert, but I hope this helps.

Sorry the tip didn't help, however, I remembered another 2 things I had to do to get the editors working. Firstly the building and vehicle editor programs must be installed into the DATA_WDB folder (see first screenshot) and run from there. The repmaker program should also be installed into this folder.
Secondly, 2 other files need to be copied. They are ADDONDE.LGD & ADDONUK.LGD, these need to be copied into the UI folder (see second screenshot).
Once again, I hope this helps and you get the editors working.
alright thanks a lot, it seems to work now (all vehicles and buildings are displayed now).
What I could not figure out yet is how to edit the buildings (factories) capacities so that they produce more, for instance the dairy or autoindustry.
Thank you for that reminder.don_quijote wrote:keep in mind that the game will crash with more than 10 additional vehicles in the list
just for case you plan to add something
Am I allowed to reduce the number of original vehicles though? And replace them by the ones made available in the package "3DTT Addon" available here: https://sites.google.com/a/3dtt.co.cc/3 ... /downloads ???
Maybe I can replace / rename some of the old trucks with more modern ones that I can make available later in the game...
Also what about new textures? If I repack them in a new data.wdb, can I use these for my modified vehicles?
BUT! You cannot replace the old vehicles or add new with the ones from the add-on. they were made fore the 3DTT Alpha and have a different distribution system for goods. The only vehicles from the add-on i got to work, are the double-decker coaches.
Just experiment with the game...and let us know, what you find out
The other night I tried to realign cars on the car waggons (because they were not centered) and replaced the VW Golf by red Porsches, but this took me 3 hours of trial and error...
I still haven't figured out how the positionning of goods works out entirely (might be that I was just too tired to think properly).
I also edited all the retiring year values for all the vehicles so it's possible to run an oldtimer train / truck
But I was not successful in re-instating some of the oldest steam engines (pre-1930s), but I think that this might be because the generated map I am playing was started in the 1930s. Hence I guess it's not possible to make this save introduce those engines...
Anyway, as I said I won't have time to experiment in the next days as I will be travelling to the UK (hopefully I can visit the Bluebell Railway while I'm there).
