Looks like it's been neglected some. :facepalm2:



Almost time to finish up the interior view.

At the moment I'm just using your EMD 16-645 engine sounds, Sound effects library, (even though the 44 tonner didn't have the automatic air purgers and electrically run air compressors) and Steve's K3H air horn.  When I got it in game I just wanted something that sounded good until I get something more appropriate for the D17000 and Westinghouse A2's.

...(even though the 44 tonner didn't have the automatic air purgers and electrically run air compressors)...

there are ways to disable those through the config extensions.

That will help solve that issue.  Thank you Justin.

Now for one of those little things that just make it better. ;)

You know that you are never going to finish this don't you Bill? That the gods have condemned you to this sisyphian task for the rest of eternity? At least it is a beautiful model to work on, but there is always going to be one more rivet to add. LOL

You have done a very impressive job, with a great attention to detail! It's going to be awesome when it is finished.

LAMO!  I think your right George.

One of my many flaws is I don't know when to stop on the detail Brian.  Maybe we should start a therapy group, "Details Anonymous" or something like that.  Actually if I could get about 3 uninterrupted days I could have everything done except the interior.  But with all that's been happening around home I think it's going to take closer to 1 to 2 month.  I better not say any more and jinx it more than I already have. :stick:

I copied and pasted those lines in my config.  It cut out the air compressor but not the air dryer.

Here is an odd one I'm encountering.



Those black spots all of a sudden appeared and I haven't been able to get them to go away.  They are not their on the image itself, the bump map or the bump maps alpha.  I've had some strange shadowing happen but most of it came out with resetting the x-forms on those parts of the mesh but not all and when the strange shadowing happened it was on parts I hadn't touched.  Has anyone run into these problems or have any ideas on what to try?

I have seen something similar..... those same style spots were on a MP15AC that Cattypatty had reskinned of Sporbust's.... I have no idea where they came as the model was pre existing.

I think that it was if you were close in the spots would show, but if you zoomed out they disappeared.

The spots were much more numerous than what you have there... I never did figure out where they came from and ended up deleting the model.

With mine if you zoom out they get bigger but when you change the time of day when you get towards evening when it's mostly dark they fade.

Hmmm shadow problem or perhaps a Env_Metal reflection problem?

EDIT: Another thought, I wonder if this has to do something with the "Uniform Color" warning and having run a tga file through PEV's tga program....
