The only suggestion I have is to talk with some of the more experianced people about smoother graphics :wink:, but I think they could only slightly be improved, great work DJC

Ooh GWR Locos eh?

I have always loved the Castle class

I'll find some statistics for you!

Wheel arrangement: 4-6-0
Power: I'd say about 1,950 hp
Speed: Often achieved 100mph on Cheltenham flyer.
Inv date: 1923
Obsolete date: never (in my mind)
Capacity: (if you want) 2 passengers (fireman & driver (why didn't Chris count those?))
10tons coal (tender)
Reliability: Castles were known for their reliabilty so about 90% I'd guess
Weight: 125 tons

Thanks

probably because the driver doesnt pay you to drive your train.

Very nice, but what happened to the A4's and the Duchess you were making?

Don't worry, they are pretty much ready to go, but I plan to release them as part of a pack of British steam locomotives and stock. To be fair Plastikman did all the hard work on those getting the graphics looking so good. The screenshot below shows the 3 locos from him, plus the Silver Jubilee coaches converted by me. The green loco on the right is a GWR Dean Goods, the first tender engine I've had a go at, but I can't get it to make any steam. I think it might be something to do with not having the correct number of sprites, there's 360 in total, 32 non sloping and 16 sloping for both loco and tender. Any help would be really appreaciated.

I'm planning on doing some earlier locos and carriges too, including the famous 'City of Truro', as the game is a bit lacking in that department. Also planning to do engines from other companies too, I just started with GWR as Chris Sawyer didn't do any of their locomotives for the game. Any suggestions/requests would be welcome, I'll see what I can do. :)

sorry mate walter beat you to it

These look Fantastic!

I can just see a scenario with a map of Great Britian, with LNER locos thundering up the ECML, and Westerns working in wales, with LMS Locos on the WCML!


I really wish I could help in some way, I just wish I could learn how to make some damn locomotion sprites (the furthest I've got is getting models in, but the dimensions are wrong, which often has another loco/tree jammed under the model)

If I could make some Gresley Teaks, could I send the PNG's to you to or Plastikman to convert to locomotion to be released with this set?

Yeah I saw he had done some UK locos, not bad either. But I'll still do my own version, City of Truro is one of my favourite engines. You guys shouldn't really be criticizing when someone spends their own time making free add-ons for the game. Plus I don't see you not doing any better.

@Andy - Sure I don't mind helping. Sounds like your x and y offsets or the 'bogeypos' value in the xml aren't right. Show us a screenshot of the problem.

Oh yeah, and the problem I had earlier has been solved, my Dean Goods is now happily chuffing away.
