[RELEASE] GWR Railcar Special Edition Set v2.0

Post by strongbow »

This small set is meant as a special add-on for the BR set, to add the long sought GWR Railcar unit. In real life, these were constructed by Associated Equipment Co. Ltd. (AEC) for the Great Western Railway, later nationalised to BR. Included are four basic versions based on the latter Swindon bodied railcars, which were the most commonly used ones.

V1.01: Changed the sounds to more realistic ones for a DMU.

V2.0: Added the twin units in GWR, BR Crimson and BR green liveries and fixed the bogies, they were pointing in the wrong direction on slopes.

Includes:

-Single Units-

GWRRC.dat - GWR Railcar
GWRRCBRC.dat - GWR Railcar in BR Crimson and Cream
GWRRCBRG.dat - GWR Railcar in BR Multiple Unit Green
GWRRCEP.dat - GWR Express Parcels Railcar

-Twin Units-
GWRTS.dat - GWR Twin-set
GWRTSBRC.dat - GWR Twin-set in BR Crimson and Cream
GWRTSBRG.dat - GWR Twin-set in BR Multiple Unit Green

It's the realtime viewport in MAX. That's where I do my vertex pushing to make it look like the photos. :)

So, that's it. Tomorrow I'll render it out, add the separate bogies and put it ingame. Then the BR green + red versions and then maybe the double.

Hope you like it. :wink:

Released, see first post. As this is a foreign unit for me, any critics & comments are welcome. :wink:

The twin units might be coming in the next version.
