I'm wondering, is there currently any way of altering a units sprite set as the vehicle gets older. For example, as a vehicle ages, replace the sprite set with one where the colors are less vivid, and obviously tarnished with dirt.
Also, can it be done based upon the last service, so instead of 'ageing' you have to take a vehicle to a depot to essentially wash it, and it comes out look all sparkly with vivid color sets again, instead of a slowly getting more darker and greyer as things 'get dirty' or 'get old'.
If this isn't possible currently, is there any realistic way of implementing it myself, as I think it may be a nice little effect, and an instant notice of "this vehicle needs replacing or servicing" instead of going to the vehicle info sheets.
It can be done even in NML, as far as i can tell the Dutch Trainset 2 is the best example. There's also the CFF set, but i don't know if it's coded in NFO or NML.
