Dobbleposting.
Just because i made an electric railcar using the sprites from the Electra from IH1, plus the roof from the Broken Nose.
The engine name is in the file name.

EDIT : Thought i'd give stats if you ever want to code it.

The shading is now incorrect in the opposite way. You should have left some of the sprites as they were!

/ sprite should have lighting in the other direction from \ sprite.

Also (if we are talking about the graphics of the Thunder posted last sunday) in one of the backviews the front headlights are on, rather than the red backlights ;-)

The shading of the vehicle is still incorrect:
Example434.png
Example434.png (16.28 KiB) Viewed 1743 times
Ill try to explain ;-)
The sun is in a fixed position, to keep it simple, its on the right.
So, that means when you start out with graphic nr2, the long side is facing the sun and the short side is facing the shadow.
So, colors used for the long side should be lighter than colors used for the short side.
When you flip your image, to get the other direction, you also have to change the shading!
So, then the long side is in the shadow and the short side is facing the sun.
Keep this also in mind for curved roofs!! (flat roofs can usually keep the same shading, no matter what direction of the vehicle)

EDIT:
By the way, to make it even better looking, you should also keep in mind where the details are placed on the roof.
So in this case the connection to the powerlines is at the front of the train (so at the side where the yellow lights are).
Make sure they stay there, as it is a bit odd that when a train for example runs in a circle, that the details swap from side to side :mrgreen:

EDIT-2:
To illustrate what I mean:
Example435.png
Example435.png (13.56 KiB) Viewed 1735 times
By the way, this is why I stick to stations and objects, those dont move... :mrgreen:

Source code updated to 5.6, now that I've fully tested the sprite adjustments for the Quicksilver.

Because of the sun position they aren't. It's the screen indicating the train destination, and even in real life the text may look darker following the sun position.

Source code has been updated to 6.0; note that several locomotives have been dummied out but are still in the source code and can easily be re-enabled with some editing.

Up to 7.6, but this time I have the issue with compiling figured out (always delete .nmlcache AND the compiled .nml file left over from the last compile), so we should only go up one number at a time from now on. Quicksilver should be the only vehicle available, since the others aren't properly aligned to the Iron Horse rolling stock.
