I had a little bit of time to make some new lofts and foliage.
Just focused around the station bridge.
I am editing the terrian and foliage textures so they sit together.
Currently there are no assets from the core sim, I am only using 3 terrain textures (I will add more as I need them.) at the moment which means the route loads in under 2 seconds.
The more I add the longer it will take to load but hopefully much quicker than most.



I had a few hours to work on some foliage, more shots to follow soon.

This week I have be mostly tracing roads in google earth, bringing the markers into Rail Simulator then laying key roads.

Once Newgate Street, Etherly lane and Escomb road are down the landscape becomes very familiar.
I will soon need to make a call on how many unique buildings and structures I'll want to model, not sure I'll be able to recreate everything.

Class 03

I've not been in the right frame of mind to do much this week after dealing with some very sad news.

To keep busy I picked up an old loco and started to add some details.

I'm still working on finishing off the 37 engine and start the cab.

Spent am hour or so blocking out the BA station area, the 2d scale is about right but evreything else is just place holder.

I'll do further blocking out before I start to texture any of the elements.

Just a quick one today. Blocking in colour and textures for the 37.
Had to remap a section around the grills as I had modelled them big. Interesting the errors you notice once you come to texture your shape.
