Sorry I not have any 2cc steam locos.

Not sure if these sets would have any

Like Garry said, Auztrains hasn't got any 2cc stuff. I actually asked about a 2cc version of Auztrains a long time ago, and then that lead me to make my own stuff. If you want to give it a go yourself, I've got a few Auztrains sprites in 2cc, and a few 2cc sprites for my own set, no steam locomotives though. I'd be glad to help make some more (and I'd assume Garry would be willing to lend a hand with coding :) ).

However, If you're after pre-existing Australian trains in 2cc, Project Generic Trains is my own set and it's mostly fictionalised versions of trains from Australia, although I haven't drawn any steam locomotives yet. The C38 class is on my todo list in future though.

Let's hope you get back sooner rather than later. The railways IRL are having a few issues, so they'll probably need your help :)

Some units are 2 car sets and not meant to have anything between them. If like to list the ones you having problems with so I can confirm.

AuzTrainsNSW_overhaul


Been experimenting with double stack container wagons.

These are OSF wagons stacked 2 high. Australia started in 1996 operating double stack across the Nullarbor Plain. So thought I could add some to my sets.

These are Australian designed .. they are 2 high for overhead wires, tunnels, low bridges and girder bridges. You need to route your railway line that is to carry these trains so it does not included those things. Overhead bridges need to be at least 2 levels high.

But it all experimental at moment. Could be days or weeks before it read to use.

Thanks .. the graffiti artists haven't attached them yet.

Looking at making the sunken wagon double stacks as well. But the problem is I had to reduce the lengths of the containers to fit in the wells which is a shame at takes away the perspective if these wagons are attached to the other type container wagons.

Will need to put my thinking cap on to decide if still make these sets or leave them out of the game.

Glad you like it .. was hoping to upload a test game file by the weekend but taking longer then I thought.

I working on purchase costs .. don't want them to expensive when the vehicle first becomes available to purchase.

I been playing and mucking around with this game since it need the old faithful DOS operating System. And today first time I realized that purchase costs increase every month from 1920. It increases at a approximately 2% a year. For instance the settings I have at moment for the 44 class diesel if you purchased in when it first available in 1958 it cost $118,886 but if you decide to purchase more say in 1982 it will cost you $183,476.

So for now I working on a nice purchasing cost on things. $118.886 I think it a bit cheap for the year 1958, so probably double it.

Cheers

Auz Trains NSW V33 Test Version


Change-Log:
* AuzTrainsNSW_overhaul and AuzTrainsNSW been amalgamated into one set and called AuzTrainsNSW (at moment it is version 33).
* AuzTrainsNSW
* now includes EMU and DMU complete sets. Not able to add center carriages as they are already included in the sets.
* There are train sets already made up or you can make you own sets. For instance a 7 Car HUB set .. you can add carriages to either end but not in the middle.
* Invisible MHO Brake-Van .. the idea of this is it can be placed at read of the HUB sets as the front and rear carriages of a HUB set is part passenger carriage and part Mail section but you can not tell this carriage to
carry both passengers and Mail, so the MHO can carry the mail that would normally be in those end carriages.
* There are some Double Stack container freight wagons. Double Stack started in Western Australia in 1996 and went as far as Broken Hill. Now they extend to Parkes and when the inland railw line is completed almost all States and Capital Sydney (except Sydney and Canberra) will have access to double stack wagons. These wagons not intended to travel through tunnels, under the electrical wire, under low bridges or travel over girder bridges. You need to make a route so can avoid all those obstacles.
* New South Wales in Australia has started carting containers full of grain. So I added some red containers to carry grain.
* Been fiddling with purchase costs I think I have these set ok.

Planned additions:

* Invisible engines so can place rolling stock in sidings and leave them there. ( I did make one but I lost where I put it .. can not see it anywhere :roll: :oops: )

* Over the next week or so, with much thanks to thse who made the Dutch Train Set I've been finding some great ideas. They have the same class diesels of different colours all in the one file. For instance I have 3 x 44 class all separate. I intend to to do same as the Dutch set, put them all in one file so when you purchase the engine you can then decide what colour scheme you want to use. Thanks to the makers of "Australian Standard Gauge v0.1.1" and "Generic Australian Set (GARS)", I have templates of colour schemes of locomotives that have not yet been released. Shame a person did all that drawings and they not been used, so hope to add these to my set.
--------------------------------------------------------
EDIT: Here a preview image of the 44 and 442 class coded as mention just above. Each has 5 colour schemes to choose from.
442 has Tuscan, blue goose, candy, reverse colour and SSR.
44 has Tuscan, blue goose, candy, reverse colour and Red Terror.
44 and 442 class.png

* Like to make a few more complete train sets such as the Riverina Express, Central West Express, Brisbane Express via Wallangarra, Gold Coast MotorRail Express , various mail trains, plus some others, but these have to wait till I return to Australia in April when I will have access to some books and also be able to do research.

If you like to test what been done so far I've included the game file. Please feel free to comment and have any suggestions to add to this set.

AuzTrainsNSWTestversion

Subject: Refit of coaches.

The purchase menu is getting very clattered with so many different types of coaches and colour schemes. So I looking at another idea with them and arrange so they can be refitted.

I picking on the HUB cars. We have the HFH, RFH, BH, BH, RBH, FH and PFH. And 3 colour schemes for a total of 18 coaches in purchase menu. But by combining the colour schemes and allow refit, I just need 6 in purchase menu.

Can end up with a train like these.

When you purchase the HFH, click on the refit menu

When Refit menu opens click on the coach concerned and then you can change it to what colour suits you.

I'll do a few more tonight and Friday and see if I can upload the test game file in time for the weekend.

Hope you like this idea. be de-cluttering the purchase menu should make it easier to find what your looking for.

Auz Trains NSW V34 Test

Subject: Refitting Diesels and Coaches

Been working on refitting of individual coaches. when you click on the coach you want it will randomly select one of the colour schemes for that particular coach. See information in previous posts.

So far I have done the coaches in the HUB, RUB and NUB sets. Also the following know as the 72 foot 6 inch cars. TAM, CAM, KAM, MAM, MAL, TBC, TFX, MBX, MCX, MBE, MFE, and MCE.

So now I have some diesels and coaches with the refitting available. Hope you like this idea .. comments appreciated.
Subject: AuzTrainsOtherStates.
Ragin1_ and I looking at idea to separate the Auz Trains Other States set into individual States.

But come across a problem. Their are a lot of private companies now that operate in almost all the States. Should they be included in every State or do we make a separate set for them. Place all the NR, AN, SSR, Silverton and some others all together in the one set.

Also Passenger train sets that operated in more then one State. Do these get place in each State they visited or could they be a small stand alone file. Some of the trains are Indian Pacific, Southern Aurora, Spirit of Progress, XPT (operates between Sydney and Melbourne and also Sydney and Brisbane), The Overlander, The Ghan, and The Transcontinental. (Some of those still to be made).

In the mean time would you like to test the game file. If you have a game in progress using the previous test version, the trains might crash.

Hope to hear from you soon.

That sounds like inflation? It's a setting and you can turn it off. Apparently it's broken so I play with it off.
